DescriptionL. F Jauffret. Zoographie des Diverses Regions, Tant de L'Ancien Que Du Noveau Continent Premiere et Seconde Livraisons, contenant, outre le texte, six Cartes zoographiques format in-4o. double. Paris: De L'Imprimerie de Crapelet An VIII, .
First edition. Quarto. 64 pages. With six double-page engraved maps.
Original printed pink paper wrappers, rebacked with blue-gray paper at an early date. Some creasing and soiling to wrappers, which also have light edge wear, and a small bit of loss to the upper edge of the rear wrapper, along reback. Light foxing to several plates. Overall, a very good copy.
A lovely copy of this work on the animals of Northern Africa, complete with six maps of Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, South America, and the northern coast of Africa. (The ultimate map depicts over fifty-five species of African animals.) An exceedingly scarce work, OCLC reports just six institutional copies of Zoographie des Diverses Regions worldwide. Jauffret's work is even rarer at market- according to ABPC, just one copy has appeared at auction in the last thirty years (the Bradley Martin copy).

We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.View More Testimonials
