Échinides fossiles de l'Algérie. Description des espèces déja recueillies dans ce pays et considérations sur leur position stratigraphique. I-X. (Complete).
- Paris, G. Masson, 1876-1891. Ten volumes in eight. Large 8vo (23.8 x 13.7 cm). 1,259 pp; 85 very finely lithographed plates. Uniform near contemporary crimson roan over marbled boards. Spines with five raised bands, and gilt title. Marbled endpapers. l A fine monograph with beautiful illustrations of generally well-preserved specimens from Jurassic to Pliocene species, including many that were new or poorly known. The authors did work their way through the rich Algerian material in a quasi-chronological way, following a planned sequence of the strata from the oldest to the youngest starting with the "Terrains Jurassiques" (volume I, 1883), followed by: II (1884) Étages Tithonique & Néocomien; III (1876) Urgo-Aptien et Albien; IV-V (1878) Cénomanien; VI (1879) Turonien; VII (1881) Sénonien, première partie [Santonien]; VIII (?1881) Campanien, Dordonien; IX (1885) Éocène; X (1891) Miocène et Pliocène. There are not title pages for parts V and VIII, as they are continuations of parts IV, and VII, respectively. Title pages with some library markings, otherwise a very good complete set with all the plates clean. Rare, especially complete sets like this one. Nissen ZBI, 977. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
