A double-sided book illustration reproduction of the painting done by E. Bostelmann.
Giant Parrotfish Migrate into the Depths quote, "A mile off Bermuda and forty feet down, a school of thousands pf Giant Blue Parrotfish (Scarus caeruleus) passed the author's window in the Bathysphere, headed for the outer, cooler depths of the sea."
Swivel-Toothed Dragonfish Pursuing Luminescent Squids (not pictured) quote, "The squids were taken from the stomach of this deep-sea gourmand (Omosudis lowi), so the action in this painting actually occurred a mile down beneath the surface."
Some discoloration on edges.
