Milne Edwards, A. and A. Grandidier and L. Lavauden [in A. Grandidier and G. Grandidier (eds.)]
Histoire physique, naturelle et politique de Madagascar. XII-XV. Histoire naturelle des oiseaux. [AND] XII. Supplément. [Complete].
1876. Paris, Imprimerie Nationale, Société d'Éditions Géographiques, Maritimes et Coloniales, and Tananarive, Imprimerie Officielle, 1876-1937. In five volumes (texte, atlas I-III, and supplément). Large 4to and folio (31 x 24 cm). 999 pp. [(i), 779; viii, 211]; 412 plates by Keulemans and others. Uniform dark blue cloth over marbled boards.

According to Nissen, ZBI "Die ersten 40 Taf. von Faguet, Gélibert, Huet, Terrier wurden durch neue von Keulemans ersetzt" In this copy, the non-osteological plates are all by Keulemans, except 7 and 71-72 (by Huët & Faguet), 41 and … [Click Below for Full Description]
