New SSAR Publication offering: J. G. Schneider’s Historiae Amphibiorum: Herpetology at the Dawn of the 19th Century is the first English translation originally published in 1799 in Latin.
J.G. Schneider was a classical philologist by profession, and an experienced naturalist of the first order. His discussions on crocodiles, frogs, salamanders, lizards, and snakes review virtually all of the herpetological knowledge of the ancient and Medieval worlds as well as providing his own “modern” insights.
This edition (translated, introduced and annotated by Aaron M. Bauer and Esteban O. Lavilla) serves as a massive resource for all of classical Herpetology before the 1800’s. Its extensive annotations, beautiful illustrations, and three fully cross-referenced indices provide unprecedented context and access to the world of amphibians and reptiles as it was known to the generation between the time of Linnaeus and the great flowering of the discipline in the 19th Century.
