Von neuen und unentdeckten tierarten (On New and Undiscovered Animal Species)

Stuttgart: Kosmos, 1950.

First edition. 80 pp. Original illustrated wraps. Text in German. Slightly toned spine and a little foxing to edges and back wrap, else Fine and unread with publisher's ad laid in. A neat illustrated paperback.

A work that anticipated modern cryptozoology, preceding Bernard Heuvelmans' foundational book On the Track of Unknown Animals by eight years. Heuvelmans himself acknowledged his debt to Krumbiegel, writing of this book that roughly 12 undiscovered species were postulated by the author, including the king cheetah of modern day Zimbabwe, sea serpents, Sumatra's fully black tapir, a Venezualan ape, the "water lion" of Angola, the small spotted bushbuck of West Africa, the fossil Chirotherium of Germany, New Zealand's otter-like waitoreke, and more. Never translated into English. Item #140939793

Price: $150.00
