I'm forwarding this from the Fisheries-Sciences list, if anyone is
interested. This Press seems to be gung-ho to reproduce some older classics
in various areas of natural history:
We are a relatively new publishing company dedicated to keeping in print
and available for purchase book titles which larger publishers have lost
interest in and have declared "out of print". We are especially
interested in scholarly book titles.

It has recently been suggested that we bring back into print a couple of
titles which might be interesting:

"The Fishes of North and Middle America : A Descriptive Catalog" by
David Jordan and Barton Evermann. Originally published in the late 1800s and
early 1900s in four volumes.

"Fishes of the Chesapeake Bay" by Samuel Hildebrand and William
Shroeder. Originally published in 1928.

"Fishes of the Gulf of Maine" by Henry Bigelow and William Shroeder.
Originally published in 1953 and=20

"The Life Histories of the Steelhead Rainbow Trout and the Silver
Salmon" by Leo Shapovalov and A. Taft. Originally published in 1954.

We would very much like to hear from members of the list who have an
opinion on the need for any of these titles. Is there still a demand, do
you think?

Of course we are interested in hearing of any other titles you think
suitable for reprinting.

Please respond directly to me.
