[INDONESIA, MALAYSIA, PHILIPPINES, MAURITIUS and the Pacific. – a collection of 45 Malacological works, in 44 volumes, mostly off-prints, 1874 and later, most 20th century].
1.Cesare Tapparone CANEFRI (1838-1891). [Drop-head title:] Contributzioni per una fauna malacologica delle isole Papuane. Genoa: 1874-1880. Parts I-VII in one volume, octavo. Some early colored paper wrappers, stapled into cream paper wrappers. A rare collection of off-prints published over six years. Parts IV and V were published together, so it would perhaps be more correct to say ‘7 parts in six, bound in one volume’. This appears to be the complete collection, but I am not certain if any supplements were published?
