Caption: Early (perhaps first) engraving of rare deep sea Tube Eye fish (Stylephorus chordata) from "Bilderbuche fur Kinder" by Bertuch 1790's. Though the discovery of the many strange deep sea fish is rather recent, specimens of unidentified 'monsters of the deep', brought up in upwellings and deep nets, have been baffling naturalists for many centuries. .
