A FISH CAUGHT IN TIME

by Samantha Weinberg

(Hardback) (second hand copy in very good condition)

In 1938, a young South African museum curator made the scientific discovery of the century. She picked out, from a fisherman's trawl, an extraordinary human-sized fish with strange lobe-like fins. It was identified as a coelacanth, a relic from the age of the dinosaurs.

Covering four continents and spanning 400 million years, this book tells the fascinating story of the search for the most rare and precious fish in the world, and the brilliant people who devote their lives to it.

Illustrated with occasional black and white photographs.

Published by Fourth Estate. 1999. Hardback. 239 pages.
Very good condition.
