Very nicely bound in ten volumes in maroon cloth with gold lettering on spine. Pages trimmed, text and plates very clean, virtually free of spotting or foxing normally found in this set or other volumes of this age. Stamp of former owner (Kraig Adler) on end pages of each volume. Erpetology Generale is considered to be the most complete systematic work on reptiles published to date. According to Adler (1989), Constant Dumeril was the greatest taxonomic herpetologist of his ra. Quote Adler… "Dumeril himself was responsible for the grand design and arrangement of genera - the first natural arrangement of genera ever undertaken for amphibians and reptiles - and thus one of the classical monuments of descriptive zoology." "Bibron's responsibility was the description of pecies….the result of which was "Erpetology Generale ou Histoire Naturalle Complete des Reptiles." Dumeril passed away in 1848, and C. Dumeril's son, Auguste Dumeril, assisted his father in completing the final two volumes. This is an exceedingly rare set of volumes of one of the most important Herpetological publications ever published. Unfortunately, the plates of volumes 5-7, 9 plus the portrait from the Atlas Volume are in photocopy, but another set in this overall condition would be very difficult to find.
