Le Caire [Cairo], L'Institut Français d'Archéologie Orientale, 1933. 4to (28.2 x 22.7 cm). 71 pp.; four plates including one in fine chromolithography. Original printed wrappers.

Written by the French malacologist Alice Pruvot-Fol (1873-1972). Pruvot-Fol's paper is by far the largest, and most profusely illustrated of six (five taxonomical) papers based on the collections made by the French marine biologist, ichthyologist, parasitologist, and director of the Service des Pêches Coloniales, Robert Philippe F. Dollfus (1887-1976) during his long stay in Egypt. This is the first volume of the results of his expedition. It incudes a general introduction by Dollfus. Other - smaller - contributions deal with Hydroidea (30 pp.); Polychaeta (52 pp.), Pseudoscorpionidea (3 pp.), Isopoda (4 pp.), and Civelles de Mex près Alexandrie (14 pp.). This is the institute's complete Mémoires, Volume 21. Uncut. Stamp on front wrapper; light fraying and chipping at edges; otherwise, a very good copy of a rare work.
