 (Facsimile Reprints in Herpetology) 


Stejneger's book "Herpetology of Japan and Adjacent Territory" is a recongized herpetological classic. it is still the only complete treatment of the herpetology in Japan, and even todfay is an indispensable reference book. It's geographic coverage is far greater than modern Japan and includes not only Japan, but also Taiwan, Korea, and adjacent China and Siberia. Stejneger treats 156 species of amphibans and reptiles, including all marine species, and for each provides a complete synonymy, detailed discriptions of typical specimens, a discussion of variation, habitat, distribution, and a list of specimens with localitites. Each species is illustrated, usually with multiple figures. There is an extensive, annotated bibliography, a gazetter of localities and an index.
