Large 4to (28.7 x 22.3 cm). xxviii, 70, [i] pp. 69 engraved plates, as follows: 1-7 [amphibians], 1-6 [turtles], 1-12, 6(II) [reptiles]; xliv, 76 pp., 43 (A, 1-42) [snakes]. Beautiful period style half calf over mottled boards. Rich gilt spine with five raised gilt-ornamented bands and red morocco label with gilt title. Marbled endpapers. Edges red. = This is a part of the famous "Encyclopédie Méthodique" and forms the separate parts on amphibians and reptiles, and the one snakes, respectively. Both were written by the French priest and zoologist Pierre Joseph Bonnaterre (1752-1804). The plates, by Robert Bénard, are renowned for their accuracy and detail. The text contains a systematic review with detailed descriptions and many new names. Being strictly binomial this is an important early contribution to the herpetological taxonomy and nomenclature. Uncut. Another part, on cetaceans (Mammalia), often combined with the herpetology, is not included, which means that this is the complete herpetology, with all text and all 69 plates, without anything else. With wide margins. A very good clean copy in a beautiful binding. Nissen ZBI, 4621. Artikel-Nr.: 60801.
Paris, Agasse, 1818. Folio (28.5 x 21.4 cm). 165 engraved plates (numbered 1-165). Contemporary full tree calf. Boards with gilt-ruled borders, spine with rich Louis XVI-style gilt-ornamented red and green morocco labels. Marbled endpapers.= This is the "insectes" atlas of the "Tableau encyclopédique et methodique des trois regnes de la nature", a subdivision of the famous Encyclopédie méthodique: "Although its several volumes can be considered a part of the greater Encyclopédie méthodique, they were titled and issued separately" (Wikipedia). The great French zoologist and entomologist Pierre André Latreille (1762-1833) wrote the insect part. It was published as "Crustacés, arachnides et insectes", but this is the plate section on true insects only; thus without crustaceans and spiders. Latreille and Olivier wrote more parts of the Encyclopédie méthodique on the insects; the total entomological section of the Encyclopédie consists of no less than five large text volumes and nearly 400 plates. Published over a long period, complete sets are very rare and even individual parts such as this one are hard to get. The finely engraved plates, numbered 1-165, show mainly butterflies (plates 2-93) and beetles (plates 135-165), but also Odonata, Orthoptera, Hymenoptera, etc., etc. Provenance: The Cyrillic armorial bookplate with Latin motto "Deus conservat omnia" of Count Sergiy Dmitrievich Sheremetev (1844-1918), author of a series of works on the history of Russia in the 16th and 17th centuries. The second, matching bookplate is a label from the library named after Nicolai Petrovich, Count Sheremetev (1751-1809). Spine rebacked, without title; otherwise a very good, clean copy. Bonnet, p. 438; Horn-Schenking, 12841 (totally uninformative); Nissen ZBI, 4621. Artikel-Nr.: 67474.

"The abbot and naturalist, Pierre-Joseph Bonnaterre (1751-1804), produced one of the earliest illustrated encyclopedias of amphibians and reptiles of the world and was the first to use the French word 'Erpétologie'. Bonnaterre was also employed by the publisher Charles Joseph Panckoucke to write the captions and superintend the production of the plates for several volumes in the series 'Encyclopédie Méthodique', an ernormous encyclopedia composed of 196 volumes (1782-1832). Some of France's most distinguished naturalists contributed to the natural section" (Adler II, p. 29.). The present section covers amphibians and reptiles except snakes. The snake part was published in the section 'Ophiologie'.Nissen ZBI, 4621. Artikel-Nr.: 8640.
