Berolini [Berlin], August Petch, 1828. 4to (24.9 x 20.6 cm). 30 pp.; one large, folded, lithographed plate. Without wrappers, as published.

Thesis written by the Würzburger zoologist Carl [or Karl] Theodor Ernst von Siebold (1804-1885), cofounder of the famous, influential Zeitschrift für wissenschaftliche Zoologie. "Siebold was one of the great comparative zoologists of his era. ... Siebold's herpetological works are few but significant, beginning with his doctoral dissertation, ... a detailed study of the anatomy and reproductive biology of Salamandra salamandra" (Adler). Inscribed on the title in a difficult old hand (dated Aschaffenburg, 26.II.[18]83). Uncut. Edges, especially the title page, a bit frayed and chipped; scattered spotting, mostly marginal and mild; otherwise very good, complete. Very rare. We found only one auction record. Adler III, pp. 88-89; DSB 12, p. 420. Neither in Cat. BM(NH) nor in Nissen ZBI.
