About this Item

two facicules bound together providing Plates VII-XXV. George Albert Boulenger is recognized as the pre-eminent taxonomist of the lower vertebrates. His works on the fish of the Belgian Congo are considered amazing since he described for the first time 1,096 species of fish. He was a member of the American Society of Ichtyologists and awarded Belgium's Order of Leopold which was the highest honor possible for a civilian. He is responsible for the scientific name for the Spotted Tilapia: Tilapia mariae. Six double page plates, 13 single page plates, many figures showing fish in text. The quality of each plate is suburb. These are beautifully done and uncolored. Very rare to have double page plates in consecutive order. Note while plates XXIV and XXV are present they are reversed. The double page plates are XI, XIX, XX , XXI, XXII, and XXIII. Bookseller Inventory # 013264
