Crania Ethnica. Les cranes des races Humaines, decrits et figures d'apres les
collections du Museum d'Histoire Naturelle de Paris... Paris,
Baillière, 1882 in 2 vols., 571p., 100 very fine lithographs. New black cloth. Dfl.
= Quatrefages de Bréau, Jean Louis Armand de, worked together with his disciple E.
Hamy on this book, surveying what was known of the
comparative craniology of living and fossil human races, for which he was trying to
achieve a classification (see DSB vol. XI, p. 235). Good
copy of this classical study on craniology of the human races renowned especially
because of its fine lithographs all by Formant. We added
a heliogravure portrait of the author!
