Descripción

Quarto, title-page and pp. 281-90, two large folding plates; modern boards. Uncommon scientific publication on the Kamchatka Snow Sheep, collected on board the Krusenstern circumnavigation.The paper was written and the engraved plates prepared by Tilesius (1769-1857), a German naturalist who was appointed to Moscow University in 1803 before joining the Krusenstern expedition, the first Russian circumnavigation. After his return he published on the voyage, and went on to a long and illustrious career. The expedition had visited Kamchatka in 1805, where Tilesius was able to collect specimens of the local "snow sheep" or "Siberian bighorn sheep" (Ovis nivicola). His original drawings are now in Leipzig University, but Tilesius also prepared these two large-format engravings for publication.The article was prepared for the scientific journal Nova acta Academiae Caesareae Leopoldino-Carolinae Germanicae Naturae Curiosorum. Some foxing and browning, but very good. N° de ref. de la librería 4208068
