Monsters Of The Sea, 1890

Here's an odd collection of illustrations depicting various sea beasts from a book released in 1890 and written by John Gibson. I think I've posted a few of these before but here appears to be the original source of the drawings.
A few more illustrations along with the entire text of the book can be found on this page.

Wow... as a little child I had a similar book 'Creatures of Land and Sea' (I think), same pictures but with odd land creatures too! A man eating tree from Africa sticks out. Wish I'd saved it, great prints.

Love the blog & thanks for all the work!!
