COMMENTS
Comments:  Addressed to the bookseller Goeschen, not identified (there are several bookseelers by that name). Apparently no agreement was made with this bookseller, the book appeared ten years later in Paris: "Camper, Petrus, Observations anatomiques sur la structure intérieure et le squelette de plusieurs espèces de cétacés, par Pierre Camper,... Publiées par son fils, Adrien-Gilles Camper,... avec des notes par M. G. Cuvier,... [Texte imprimé], Paris : G. Dufour, 1820"
