Three rare contributions to the Malayan fish fauna by the German-Dutch zoologists and ichthyologists Hermann Schlegel and Salomon Müller. The three works include several new and lesser-known species. The first deals with a new freshwater fish, the second with four new marine fishes, and the third forms a compilation of six fish genera, including the clownfish and damselfish, in the Seas around the Moluccas and Sunda islands. Published in the Verhandelingen over de natuurlijke Geschiedenis der Nederlandsche overzeesche Bezittingen, on very large paper. The second and third paper have Schlegel as first author. Text pages a bit age-toned and with a few spots; plates generally cleaner. A very good copy. Dean II, p. 403. Not in Nissen.
