Dresden, Oscar Weiske, 1869. 8vo (22.4 x 13.8 cm). xiv, 119 pp. Contemporary limp vellum with script title on the spine.

This is the first of a series of catalogues of species from one of the largest 19th-century collections. With a preface by Schaufuss. Long used as a reference to names, authors and locations. As such it is still of value today. A former owner added, in an old hand, an additional list of Patella species (tipped in on the lower margin of p. 65). Provenance: small stamp of the American malacologist Richard Irwin Johnson (1925-2020) in the top margin of the front free endpaper and title page; minute pencil ticks throughout otherwise an excellent, clean copy. Bound copies, such as this one, are rare.
