Abstract: This work was published 1841-1847 and is exceptionally rare (only 11 copies on record). Lemaire envisioned a work of some 200 plates but managed only sixteen in this work. This particular copy has fourteen plates, 13" x 21.25", which are copper color printed engravings by Dumenil drawn by Maubert. Lemaires's two-page description follows each plate for each species.
