Paris, F. Savy, 1866-1869. Four parts in one. 8vo (22.5 x 14.6 cm). Half-title, title page, 144 pp.; six lithographed plates. Near contemporary green, grained morocco over marbled boards. Spine with four raised bands, gilt dates and title. Marbled endpapers. Speckled edges. Original printed yellow front wrappers bound in.

This is a complete set, as a consolidated offprint – with new pagination, printed wrappers and plate numbering – of the author's contributions to continental malacology, also published in the Revue et Magasin de Zoologie. A pencilled note at the bottom of the first wrapper states "tiré a 100 exemplaires". J. J. I. Alcide de Paladilhe (1814-1876) was a French physician and malacologist interested in continental molluscs. Provenance: small stamp of the French malacologist Henri Drouët (1829-1900) on the third wrapper (partly cut); inscribed and signed by the author, viz., a dedication on the first and fourth wrapper to an unidentified person, as the wrappers are trimmed, shaving the name. A former owner, the American malacologist and malaco-historian Richard Irwin Johnson (1925-2020) added a complete collation, written in pencil, on the first blank verso. His small stamp is in the top margin of the front free endpaper recto, and first front wrapper. Not in Nissen.
