project gutenberg

project gutenberg is a collection of free books for download.at this time they offer 44,000 online and downloadable books.i was looking around the site and found the book- "the book of the aquarium and water cabinet " by shirley hibberd circa 1856. i am going to check it out over the next few days. it will be interesting to see how fresh and saltwater fish were kept 160 years ago. i thought it mat pique the interest of a few of the members here.....well,off to change the water in my "water cabinet."

I have a couple of 100 year old copies aquarium literature.
The Harvard Library is a wonderful resource.
