Item ID 72277
Berlin, R. Friedländer, 1899. Large 4to (33.4 x 27.2 cm). Title pages, vi, 217 pp.; 11 fine, large, folded lithographed plates (of which the first in chromolithography), with explanatory text leaves. Original printed wrappers. Important monograph on copepod crustaceans of the Mediterranean Sea. The plates are morphological, anatomical, histological and cell-biological. Author is the German zoologist and crustacean specialist Wilhelm Giesbrecht (1854-1913), who wrote much on copepods. Uncut. Wrappers a bit soiled and with several small spots, first title verso partly soiled, otherwise a fine, clean copy. Very rare, especially in such a good state. Modern "reprints" are no match. Nissen ZBI, 1569.
