A rare and beautifully produced work on poisonous fishes. The text is both in Russian and French. Petr Nikolaevich Savchenko (1844-1885) was 'Médicin major de la marine Impériale Russe'. The fine plates are after drawings by the author and lithographed by Ch. Ivabson and some of the plates have a metallic silver sheen. A fine copy, tiny paper damage at the upper margin of title-page.
