Bleeker, M. P
Atlas Ichthyologique des Indes Orientales Néêrlandaises, 10 volumes
Under the auspices of the Smithsonian Institution, 1989. Hardcover. 10 folio volumes (over 17 inches tall), very good to fine set, with hundreds of color plates. Includes the 10th unnumbered volume publishing plates for the first time that were prepared for publication but remained unpublished due to Bleeker's death in 1878. The first three volumes in blue cloth, the following 7 volumes in brown gilt stamped leather or imitation leather, mainly fine, but two have a faintly sticky coating (other sellers mention this problem, too) that has caused them to have light rubbing, contents all fine and clean. Postage outside the US will be calculated for potential purchasers in advance of sale, but standard rates apply for media rate in the US; expedited shipping in the US will also have to be calculated (this is a very heavy set). Some still have their original cardboard "slipcases." Great work on fish in the Dutch Indies. Although some libraries are likely to have all ten volumes, the evidence from OCLC is that few if any institutions have the full set (hard to bellieve). The lowest comparable copies from other dealers starts at over $1100. Near Fine.
