Paris: Imprimerie veuve Berger-Levrault, 1845.

First comprehensive (124pp., 17 plates) anatomical study of the giraffe, conducted during a 20 day dissection of the huge animal in Toulouse. The authors entrusted the dissection to the Toulouse taxidermist, H. Traverse, who was able to dissect the animal while preserving its hide and skeleton intact, with the goal of eventually stuffing the animal, which remains preserved in the Musée d'histoire naturelle de Toulouse. Mém. de la Soc. d'Hist. Nat. de Strasbourg, III, livr. 3.
