Copenhagen, Gylendal, 1937. Large 8vo (28.2 x 18.5 cm). 203 pp. [134; 19; 24; 26]; two folding maps. Original printed wrappers.
The complete zoological results (except for the mammals) of a Danish expedition to Arctic North America. In total, ten volumes were published, but most deal with geology, topography, ethnography and archaeology. Of volume II, the first three parts are botanical, and No's 4-5 are on mammalogy. By far the largest section of the present volume, however, is on birds, written by the Danisch ornithologist and malacologist Richard Hørring (1875-1943). Smaller papers are on fishes, by J. R. Pfaff, insects, by K. L. Henriksen, and Crustacea, by K. Stephensen. Uncut. Inscribed and dated by a former owner on the front wrapper. Edges a bit frayed, as can be expected; otherwise a very good, clean copy. Very uncommon, if not rare.
