volume called "Aquarium Fishes & Plants", with text authored by K. Rataj and
R. Zakal, and illustrations by J. Maly. Apparently, the copy I picked up (in
pristine condition) was published in 1973, but the original book was
published in 1971 and done by Artista for Spring Books and published by The
Hamlyn Publishing Group Limited. The ISBN is 0 600 30056 0.<<

Beautiful book, isn't it?  One of my "old favorites".  The text is dated,
but the art work is really beautiful.

co-authored "Aquarium Plants.  Rataj, K., Horeman, T. (1977)" and which is
still flogged by TFH? <<

I have always assume that it was.  Is there any reason that you think it
might not be?  It seems pretty unlikely that there are two people named "K.
Rataj" in the small world of aquatic plants.
