Note Bibliografiche

Breslau and Bonn, Academia Caesareae Leopoldino-Carolinae, 1835. Large 4to (29.5 x 22.5 cm). Title page, pp. [185]-268, 268a-d; ten finely engraved plates of which five are delicately hand-coloured. Contemporary marbled boards. Cloth spine with gilt title. Marbled endpapers. = Extremely rare (even more so with the plates in the coloured state) treatise on amphibians and reptiles, including (flying) lizards, snakes, and turtles, of which many are new. Published in the academy's Nova-Acta, volume 17. The four pp. supplement is present. Arend Friedrich August Wiegmann (1802-1841) founded the Archiv für Naturgeschichte, widely known under its nickname "Wiegmann's Archive". Although Wiegmann might be better known for his herpetological work on the fauna of Mexico, this publication is at least as important. It contains new species from the Philippines, the Galapagos Archipelago, and South America, visited by Franz Julius Ferdinand Meyen (1804-1840) during his voyage around the world. The complete zoology, botany and antropology was published separately as "Reise um die Erde ausgeführt auf dem Königlich preussischen Seehandlungs-Schiffe Prinzess Louise, commandirt von Capitain W. Wendt in den Jahren 1830, 1831, und 1832", to which Darwin refers in his work on the zoology of South America and the Galapagos Islands. "The plates are very good" (P. E. Vanzolini, 1977 in "An annotated bibliography of the land and fresh-water reptiles of South America (1758-1975)". Skilfully rebacked. Two faint blind stamps on the title and dedication leaf, one text leaf damaged (without loss), plates somewhat age-toned, otherwise a very good copy of this extremely rare work, especially in a coloured state. Adler I, pp. 28-29; BM(NH) Cat. 1297, 2317; Nissen ZBI, 2799 (under Meyen); Vanzolini, p. 51. Not in the Crane Library.
