Die Radiolarien (Rhizopoda Radiaria). Eine Monographie. Zweiter Theil: Grundriss einer allgemeinen Naturgeschichte der Radiolarien & Dritter und Vierter Theil: Die Acantharien und Phaeodarien oder Actipyleen und Cannopyleen Radiolarien.
Berlin, Georg Reimer, 1887-1888. 3 parts bound in 2 volumes. Folio (360 x 275mm). pp. xvii, 248, with one large folding coloured map and 64 (some coloured) lithographed plates; pp. (8), 31, with 12 (some coloured) lithographed plates; pp. (8), 31, with 30 (many colourerd) lithographed plates. Contemporary half cloth with publisher's printed boards. A complete copy consists of 4 volumes with 141 plates of which we offer volumes 2-4. The above work is Haeckel's greatest achievement in systematic zoology and at the same time it is his rarest work. The fine plates are after the author's own drawings, who besides from being a famous biologist, was a very gifted artist. "In his 'Radiolarien' Haeckel used Darwinian concepts in his discussion of the relations of the families of this order, in his consideration of a genealogical table, and his speculations regarding the original primitive type form of the order; and he emphasized the evolutionary significance of transitional forms" (R.C. Stauffer. Haeckel, Darwin, and ecology). The plates also appeared in the author' s radiolarian volumes of the 'Challenger-Report'. A fine copy.
