'A Treatise on the Common Sole (Solea vulgaris): Considered Both as an Organism and A Commodity' by JT Cunningham 1890 with 18 illustration plates (half in colour) by Miss Annie Willis, is available from the National Marine Biological Library in UK. It is sectioned into pdf files - but the plates can be downloaded separately. Unfortunately pdf copying is disabled so the above images are screen captures (click on them for larger versions).

Neither common nor vulgar, for mine. Unlike your host.
