Reise der Oesterreichischen Fregatte Novara um die Erde, in den Jahren 1857, 1858, 1859...
Wien: K. Gerold's Sohn, 1864-, 1866. 24 original parts, octavo, with lithograph plates, maps, and numerous illustrations in the text; a very fine set in original yellow wrappers, preserved in two bookform boxes. A stunning set in original parts. A fine set in original parts of this narrative of the {i Novara }expedition, the only major Austrian exploring expedition. The author, Scherzer, was one of the naturalists on the expedition, in charge of ethnography, linguistics, anthropology and statistics. This important voyage to the Pacific and round the world (almost entirely in the southern hemisphere) was commanded by Captain Bernard von Wüllerstorf-Urbair. There were also extensive publications resulting from the scientific work carried out, but this narrative in its {i Volksausgabe }form, intended for popular consumption, was successful enough to be published five times during the 1860s and 1870s. There are substantial sections on both Australia and New Zealand.
