de malacologie et de conchyliologie formant partie de la bibliotheque de Mr. J.
by J. G. Hidalgo. Madrid: s. n., 1888.
One of the very few malacologists in Spain in the 19th
century, Joaquín González Hidalgo y Rodríguez (1839-1923) served as the
Professor of Malacology at the University of Madrid, specializing in the
mollusks of the Iberian Peninsula, the Balearic Islands, and the
Philippines. SIL holds a half-dozen of
his major works. He built a fine shell
collection and research library, which were eventually deposited in the Museo
National de Ciencias Naturales in Madrid, but neither is readily
accessible. Thus it will be of interest
to researchers at NMNH to be able to consult this bibliography, which
identifies the books he owned and used in his work. Extremely scarce, this work is held by only
one other library in the U.S. and by two universities in Madrid.
