The Caecilians of the World
By Taylor, Edward H.
Pp. viii, (6), 848; 425 text-figures and photos. Publisher's original dark blue cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine, original glassine dust jacket, thick lg 8vo. This is the classic work on caecilians (limbless, serpentine amphibians), that has become very scarce. When Edward Taylor wrote this work, he was considered the world's leading authority on this group. No other monograph on the subject supersedes it. Modern caecilians and their closest fossil relatives are grouped as a clade, Apoda, within the larger group Gymnophiona (from Wiki). They inhabit the tropics of South and Central America, Africa, and southern Asia. No ownership marks.
