The Original 9 volume sets issued in five plus the atlas volume. French text. (9 volumes plus an atlas of colored plates, 1834-1854). This latter work, generally known as "D & B," has been reprinted and is still considered the most comprehensive work ever done, it covers the internal anatomy, physiology, and the associated literature. Karl Patterson Schmit wrote: "It was the crowning work of a century of herpetoloigcla studies". The value of this full-size facsimile work is that it is not only complete but carefully edited for clarity. The 120 finely exectuted plates are reprinted in both colored and uncolored states because the original coloring sometimes obscured details of scutellation. The volume have nearly 7,000 pages. Limited to 500 sets. It will be essential not only for herpetologists, but also for the serious student on conservation.
