Transactions of the Linnean Society of London. 3rd series, vol. 1. Complete set of Reports I-XX, including scarce loose maps. Lake Titicaca straddles the border between Peru and Bolivia in the Andes Mountains. The lake has a number of interesting scientific features, it is the largest lake at a comparable high elevation and has been part of an isolated drainage system for a considerable period of geological time. The aim of the Percy Sladen Expedition was ‘to complete the faunal and floral lists of earlier workers’ and to make ‘an ecological survey of the lake with detailed investigation of the interrelationship of different animals and plants’.


4to, nicely bound in buckram, leather title-piece to spine. Original part wrappers bound in; index is bound at the front. Withdrawn from an institutional library with a few ink stamps.
