London, The Zoological Society of London, 1897. 8vo (23.0 x 15.9 cm). 45 pp., ten lithographed plates of which five in full colour. With the issue's printed wrappers.

Written by the great Belgian herpetologist and ichthyologist George Albert Boulenger (1858-1937). A large paper, certainly if compared to other publications in the Society's Proceedings, and, rather unusual for Boulenger, with finely hand-coloured plates. The work deals with the serpents, lizards and frogs of Sulawesi (formerly Celebes), and is of high taxonomical and zoogeographical importance. It includes the description and fine illustrations of many new and poorly known species. Extracted from the Society's Proceedings, including the original wrappers. A very good, clean copy. Neither in Cat. BM(NH) nor in Nissen.
