Erd- und Susswasser Gasteropoden der Schweiz. Mit zugabe einiger merkwurdigen exotischen arten [plate volume only]

by J D W Hartmann

Condition: Fair/N


St Gallen: Verlag von Scheitlin und Zollikofer, 1844 Plate volume only from this extremely scarce work by Johann Daniel Wilhelm Hartmann. With 84 plates of which 83 are hand coloured. Issued in parts between 1840 and 1844, it seems likely that the plates were issued separately. This volume in marbled paper covered card boards and cloth spine is made up purely of the plates with no title page. The plates are stapled in, but the gutters are wide, so this would not affect any rebinding. The plates issued in 1840 (nos I-XII) have roman numerals and the remainder are numbered with arabic numerals. The name of the work is written in ink on the front endpaper and 3 initial and 4 final blanks have been bound in. The plate paper is slightly toned and there is general light spotting and more toned areas throughout. Please enquire if you would like to see further images.
