Contents of this Introductory Volume include: Physical Features, etc., of the Area treated; Sources from whence our Material was obtained; Itinerary of Mr. G. C. Champion's Travels in Central America, 1879-1883; List of Completed Volumes, Zoology, Botany, and Archaeology; Analysis of Contents of each Volume; Summary of Contents of each Volume; Origin, etc., of the Fauna and Flora of Central America; Maps. True first edition, not a facsimile. This is an English language publication. Author preface dated June 1915. Printed by Taylor and Francis, Fleet Street, London. Presumed later binding [circa 1940s?] in navy blue buckram, with crisp gilt-stamped lettering to the spine, and with fresh pastedowns and FEPs.

Rare in any condition; indeed scarce even in facsimile. An indispensable volume for collectors of various volumes from the series, With thanks to William Reese Company for the following: "The Biologia is one of the towering achievements of natural history research in the Americas, and remains fundamental to the study of Neotropical plants and animals to this day.... Because of the massive nature of the work and its extended period of publication, and because subscribers could purchase sections of the work without subscribing to the whole, most holdings are fragmentary.... The entire Biologia project was conceived and executed at the highest level of scholarship and production, with almost 900 colored plates. It remains the single greatest published resource for New World natural history." According to Wikipedia, "Frederick Ducane Godman [1834-1919] was an English lepidopterist, entomologist and ornithologist. He was one of the twenty founding members of the British Ornithologists' Union. Along with Osbert Salvin, he is remembered for studying the fauna and flora of Central America."

Leiden, Netherlands E.J. Brill 1970 First Edition Buckram Near Fine Very Good Plus 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
Ce n'est pas une édition bilingue. Texte en français uniquement, pas en anglais. This is not a bilingual edition. Text in French only, not in English. This is Volumen Quattuordecimum from the series, Documenta et Monumenta Orientis Antiqui. Printed and presumed bound in the Netherlands. Oxford blue buckram binding, with crisp gilt-stamped lettering to the front board and to the spine. 11.5 x 9 inches. Unbumped spine head and tail, with sharp corners. Text block firmly bound in. With xii and 199 numbered pages, interspersed with maps, diagrams, figures and tables, and followed by LI monochrome plates on glossy stock. Upper left corner of front pastedown with a number printed in a small, neat ink hand. A few tiny, pin-point sized spots to the top edge of the pages as seen from above. Else an immensely clean copy, and quite tight. Almost certainly unread. The attractive pictorial dust jacket is unclipped. DJ with rubbing at the spine head and tail and at the corners. The DJ in a Mylar DJ protector. A Near Fine copy in a Very Good Plus DJ. Dans l'introduction (pp. 1-15), l'auteur définit les cadres géographique - la Mésopotamie, - et chronologique, - des origines à la fin de l'époque de Djemdet- Nasr - , puis expose l'usage théorique des cachets, la manière dont ils ont été exécutés. Les formes sont enfin répertoriées, avec les équivalences anglaises et allemandes. L'étude chronologique (chapitre I, pp. 16-76) est divisée en quatre parties correspondant aux époques pré-obeidiennes, d'Obeid, d'Uruk et de Djemdet-Nasr. Une carte, pour chacune, indique les sites qui ont livré des documents. Après la description de chaque série, les matières utilisées, la technique de gravure, la forme et le décor sont examinés. Les lacunes que l'on peut regretter dans cette étude très systématique sont presque toujours celles qui affectent les publications: c'est ainsi que les documents de Hassuna n'ont pu être reproduits, et qu'il n'est pas traité des supports des empreintes, qui ne sont pas seulement des scellements de vases, mais aussi des " bulles " de formes diverses, destinées à sceller des noeuds, par exemple. Les hautes époques, pré-obeidiennes et d'Obeid, ne sont guère représentées que dans le Nord, surtout à Tépé Gawra (Gaura). Les époques ultérieures posent un problème de terminologie qui est exposé avec clarté (pp. 42-45). L'auteur s'en tient à l'ancien découpage en époques.
