Washington, D. C.: Smithsonian, 1965- 1984. First edition, complete in four volumes (pp. frontis, 483, index; frontis, 605, index; frontis, 631, index; frontis, 670, index). Large octavo (24 cm). Volume I in soft covers, pages uncut and unopened; Volumes II - IV in dust wrappers over blue green publisher's cloth, gilt titles. Four coloured frontispieces and more than 200 b & w illustrations. A rigorous scientific survey and not a picture book. The Panama region (never mind the Republic) comprises a variety of land forms, ocean shores with habitats to match. A new species or two may have been identified since 1984, but every species known until that time surely is here, and in detail. Some Dw tips worn, otherwise Fine.
