A fine collection of rare papers by the important Dutch zoologist and entomologist Jan van der Hoeven (1801-1861) who was professor of zoology at the University of Leiden. The first paper deals with crocodiles; three, larger, papers are on insects (two plates), one is on crustaceans (one plate). With two handwritten dedications by the author. Provenance: from the library of the historian A. J. F. Gogelein, previously from the library of H. Goemans (perhaps the medical doctor H. Goemans from Zierikzee [1803-1879]). See Horn-Schenkling 10482-10483 for the entomological contributions.
