Handsomely bound in dark green buckram, this octavo Volume of over 400 pages delineates the life and scientific contributions of Karl Eduard von Martens (1831-1904) the noted German zoologist whose research centered on mollusks. A biogeographical sketch is provided; his professional career (from 1855 onwards) was spent at the Zoologisches Museum Berlin. The first complete bibliography of his publications is here included. Martens described some 155 genera (150 molluscan) and almost 1,800 species (circa 1,680 mollusks, 39 crustaceans, 50 echinoderms, 9 in other animal groups); a full catalogue with subsequent references of note completes this work.
