Harvard Museum of Comparative Zoology : Memoirs / Special Publications For Sale.

Memoirs of the Museum of Comparative Zoology Volume 10 : 1897 : The North American Crinoidea Camerata. By Charles Wachsmuth and Frank Springer. This is a very rare and beautiful three (3) volume set. Hardback, dark blue cloth, gold lettering on cover and spine, 14 x 10.5”. The two text volumes have a total of 837 pages printed on thick, quality paper. The plates volume has 83 gorgeous plates, each with a separate explanation page, all printed on thick, quality paper. Includes a table of contents and index. Includes paper printed "Compliments of Frank Springer and Alexander Agassiz." SCARCE, rarely found. See photos below.

Very Good condition. This set was professionally hardbound and each volume retains the original green paper covers inside around the text (or plates) block. I would evaluate these volumes as nearly pristine and probably never read. Hinges solid, Bindings solid, Covers clean and bright, pages crisp and clean. Due to this high value of the set, I will list very picky and detailed condition here. All volumes : mild bumping to cover corners and spine ends. Pages faintly tanned. Volume 1 : Cover lightly rubbed. Name neatly written in upper corner of green paper cover. Very tiny hole in fly leaf where it once stuck to adjoining page. Page 311 has a tear in margin, nothing missing. Volume 2 : Name neatly written in upper corner of green paper cover. Back green paper cover has a corner chip of about 2" x 2". Affecting approximately the pages 510-530, there is roughness in by the binding - it looks like the original stitching when the report was hardbound may have partly missed a couple signatures, tearing the very inner edge of the pages for about a quarter inch. They are still attached, just not cleanly. Lower spine end bumped. Volume 3 : Name neatly written in upper corner of green paper cover. Mild crease across lower part of green inner cover. Back green paper cover has a corner crease and a thin line of chipping in the other corner edge. Please ask if you have any questions. $195.
