About This Item

xxviii, 70 p., (2), 26 plates (plus 36 plates from the Ophiologie volume). Plates are: Amphibians 7 plates; Turtles 6 plates; Lizards & Crocodilians 13 plates; Snakes 36 plates.

"The Encyclopédie Methodique is a modified version of Diderot and d'Alembert's great encyclopedia. It comprises 196 volumes, issued between 1782 and 1832. Herpetological matters are dealt with by Dauberton and by Bonnaterre." (Vanzolini)

The two herpetology sections by Bonnaterre rely heavily on Lacepède, which is openly copied in parts. This work is a good example of late eighteenth century popular natural history. The engravings are generally copied from other works, but still hold some interest today. Being printed before pulp was used to make paper, the archival quality of this book is excellent and it remains in very good condition today.

About Breck Bartholomew Natural History Books

Specializing in antiquarian natural history books. Breck Bartholomew Natural History books, formerly Bibliomania, originally opened in 1995 as a herpetological bookstore. In 2016 my focus broadened to cover all natural history subjects as well as some related sciences, but narrowed to just rare and antiquarian books.
