Description: CONCHOLOGY -- (DEZALLIER D'ARGENVILLE, A.J.). Histoire naturelle éclaircie dans deux de ses parties principales, la lithologie et la conchyliologie, dont l'une traite des pierres et l'autre des coquillages, ouvrage dans lequel on trouve une nouvelle méthode & une notice critique des principaux auteurs qui ont écrit sur ces matières. Par., De Bure, 1742. (8), 491, (1) pp. W. engr. front. & 32 engr. plates, partly cold. by hand. 4°. Mod. artificial hcf. extra w. raised bands & dec. gilt back. (A bit browned/foxed in places). DSB I, 243-44: "This work, illustrated with beautiful plates, was a great success. D'Argenville profited from the eighteenth century's infatuation with the natural sciences and, indeed, contributed to this vogue by publishing descriptions of the most notable exhibits of natural history in Paris and the provinces". - Barbier II, 819; Nissen, ZBI, 145.
