This fine fish etching with original hand-coloring was illustrated by Ebenezer Albin for A Treatise on Fish and Fish-Ponds by the Hon. Roger North. The work was published by W. Lewis for J. Goodwin in London. While there is no date on the title page, the paper is watermarked 1824 and believed to be published in 1832. Eleazer also employed the help of his family, Elizabeth and Fortin, to complete the etchings. The plates were first completed between 1735 and 1740 for Albin’s Icones piscium.
