It was enhanced by specimens from all over the world sent for identification and description. His entomological collection, herbarium, and library were given to the Musée d'Histoire Naturelle in Neuchâtel. Part of his collection is now in the Natural History Museum in London, with his general entomological collection still at the Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle in Neuchâtel." (Wikipedia). Uncut. Some light foxing in the text, mainly in the endpapers, plates in plate volume partly detached (as always, the binding of this part was much to weak) but the plates are all fine. In all a very good set. Rare in a complete state with the supplement. Horn-Schenkling II(3), p. 277; Nissen ZBI, 3166. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
