Les Macrolépidoptères du Globe. Révision systématique des Macrolépidoptères connus jusqu' à ce jour.
- Stuttgart, Kernen, 1911-1945. 20 volumes (bound in 27). Large 4to (320 x 248mm). With 1364 chromo-lithographed plates. 21 volumes uniformly bound in half calf, titles lettered in French, 6 volumes in portfolio. A fine complete copy and in some ways a supernumerary copy of the rare French edition of Seitz' 'Die Gross-Schmetterlinge der Erde'. The German and English edition were both published by Kerner Verlag in Stuttgart. Due to the second World War some volumes remained incomplete. The French edition, however, was published by Eugène Le Moult (1882-1967) and also distributed by him. The plates of all three language editions were printed by Kernen Verlag. The French edition is the least complete edition. Otto Kerner gives the following comment why the French edition sometimes has less plates: 'Nous avions réservé toutes les planches pour Le Moult, mais il n'avait pas l'argent pour les payer et enfin nous les avons maculées'.The set is composed as follows:Faune Paléarctique:Vol. I: pp. viii, 380 with 89 plates (complete and all published); Vol. II: pp. 479, with 56 plates (complete and all published); Vol. III: pp. iii, 511, with 75 plates (complete and all published); Vol. IV: pp. v, 479, with 25 plates (complete and all published).Supplément:Vol. I: pp. vii, 404, with 16 plates (complete and all published); Vol. II: pp. vi, 312, with 16 plates (complete and all published); Vol. III: 26 plates, (no French text was published and only the 26 plates appeared); Vol. IV: 26 plates (no French text was published and only the 26 plates appeared).Faune Americaine:Vol. V: pp. xi, 1141, with 203 plates (complete and all published); Vol. VI*: pp. 1-600, with 198 plates (all published of the French edition); Vol. VII: pp. 1-156, with 57 plates (all published, the text was not completed); VIII: 16 plates (all published, no text appeared, only the 16 plates).Faune Indo-Australienne:Vol. IX: pp. xii, 1210, with 177 plates (complete and all published); Vol. X: pp. ii, 1-663, with 104 plates (all published of the French edition); Vol. XI**: pp. 1-296, completed with the German edition pp. 297-496, with 57 plates (all published); Vol. XII: pp. 1-44, with 17 plates, (all published of the French edition).Fauna Africaine:Vol. XIII: pp. 615, with 80 plates (complete and all published); Vol. XIV: pp. 600, with 80 plates (complete and all published); Vol. XV: pp. iii, 1-22, with 30 plates (all published of the French edition); Vol. XVI: 16 plates (all published, no text published of the French edition).*Volume VI is all published of the French edition, the copy has been completed however with the English text, which runs from page 600-1451 (the numbering of pages of the French and English and German edition is the same) and has 3 more plates than the French edition.**Of volume XI we offer pages 1-296 of the French text. The French text should run to 328, which is all published of the French edition.
