Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Amphibia of the Indo-Australian Archipelago: With 29 Illustrations In the preface to the two volumes of this series, describing the Reptiles of the indo-australian Archipelago, I have given a short history about the work on the Vertebrates of Dutch East-India. It began with the publication of a work on the fishes of the Archipelago of which four volumes have already appeared. With the valuable cooperation of Dr. J. C. Koningsberger, while director of s Lands Plantentuin at Buitenzorg, Java, and later on with that of his successor Dr. W. M. Docters Van Leeuwen, the original plan got successively a wider scope and the preparation of a series of handbooks of the vertebrate fauna of the Archipelago was recommended. In 1912 the aid of the government was gained for the publication of the two quoted volumes about the Reptiles, which were issued in 1915 and 1917. It was then allowed to presume, that the governmental aid would also be bestowed upon a volume describing the indo-australian Amphibia, which was under preparation by Prof. P. N. van Kampen. However, in 1921, when the manuscript of his work was finished, the economical situation was so totally changed, that there was no chance to get the financial support from the government, necessary for issuing the volume. This financial dilemna was solved by the Zoologisch Insulindefonds, by the Gresshoff-Rumphius-fonds and by the Leidsch Universiteitsfonds, who were ready to support the finances. All those who are interested in the fauna of this region are therefore indebted to the councils of these institutions, and it is a pleasing duty of thanking them for their valuable help so cordially given. The Amphibia of the indo-australian Archipelago described in the present volume enumerate 254 species. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
