Pp. (1), 22; 3 full page lithographed plates, each with some images hand-colored. Later wine red cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine (original printed brown wrappers bound in at rear), 4to. From: Aus Dem 14. Bande der Denkschriften der Mathematisch-Naturwissenschaftlichen Classe der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften Besonders Abgedruck. This rare monograph presents an early collection of frogs from Bolivia. Nine of the taxa described by Schmidt are still recognized today and include some of the distinctive and well-known species from the region (Adler, Vol. 3, pp.19-120). This is a very rare work. A few old creases to the rear wrapper, light foxing to the rear (blank) side of plate 3, the attractive cloth binding shows no signs of wear; a tight and clean copy in near fine condition.
