Col. Plates 45; cf. Wood p. 267 listing the French edition of 1749-1804: "This, the first and most complete work of the famous naturalist, was completed after more than 50 years toil, with the aid of other celebrated zoologists, L.J.M. Daubenton, P. Guéneau de Montbeillard, G.L.C.A. Bexon, and Count de Lacépède. The combined treatises discuss the whole range of the animal, vegetable and mineral kingdoms and form a veritable mine of information not only much utilized by subsequent investigators but separately published more or less in variant editions by the writers themselves". The number of plates does not correspond with Nissen's list (1122 plates), but most copies have different numbers of plates. - Plt 3 ( L Hippotame) of vol. 12 is placed in vol. 15 (p. 120) together with one page additional text. Apart from the small defects an attractive complete set. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 252708
