A seldom-seen work on Finnish vertebrates, including the complete herpetological and ichthyological section. Written by the professor of zoology Pehr Ulrik Ferdinand Karlsson Sadelin (1788-1848), and Joseph Joachim Alcenius (1798-1853) who defended this work as his thesis. The preliminary pages contain ten propositions, the last 14 pages contain an index and errata list. Sandwiched between pp. 46 and 47 is a title to Partem Tertiam, which has Gustaf Henrik Ingman as second author, and is in fact the list of Addenda et corrigenda in prima Faunae nostrae Fennicae parte on the unnumbered leaves in the rear The first part - not included - was published in 1810 and dealt with Finnish mammals and birds. Uncut; fore and bottom edges, therefore, a bit uneven and frayed; otherwise a very good, clean and unmarked copy. Cat. BM(NH) p. 1779.
