Free fish books!

A couple awesome (and previously expensive) fish books have been made fully available online for free. The TN book is a PDF, the WI book is a list of links for each chapter and you can page through it all.

 

Here are the links:

"The Fishes of Tennessee"

"The Fishes of Wisconsin"

Cool! I've downloaded it and added it to my fish book collection.

Thanks for the tip. Now I can get rid of the bad copies I've had of the Suckers chapter.

Great tip

Thanks for the tip.  I have been eyeing up the "Fishes of Tennessee" for some time but the cheapest copy in fair condition is over $400 now.  E-book now added.  Thanks Josh.

I'm downloading the Tennessee

I'm downloading the Tennessee one right now. It could help me a lot, being an hour from the state line.

 

 

 

Let there be fire!

Can you download sections of the WI book as a pdf?  If so, how?

I don't think you can.

I don't think you can.

You could download the images of the pages, then lay them out in a page layout program and make a PDF of the whole book (1000 pages!), but it would be tedious in the extreme.

They used to have a Djvu (or something like that?) viewer of the book, and that allowed PDFs of individual pages which could then be combined.
