Title: Die Isepiptesen Russlands Grundlagen zur Erforschung der Zugzeiten und Zugzeiten und Zugrichtungen der Vögel Russlands Author: Meddendorff, A.V. Place: St. Petersburg Publisher: Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften Date: 1855 Description: 143 pp. Two folding maps. (4to) disbound, original wrappers present. First Edition. Scarce account of bird migrations in Russia. Alexander Theodor von Middendorff (1815–1894) was a Russian zoologist and explorer. In 1839, Middendorff became Assistant Professor of Zoology at Kiev University. In the summer of 1840 Middendorff was asked by Karl Ernst von Baer to join an expedition to Novaya Zemlya. Due to stormy conditions the expedition failed to reach Novaya Zemlya, but Baer and Middendorff explored Russian and Norwegian Lapland, as well as the Barents and White Seas. Middendorff was tasked with crossing on foot the Kola Peninsula and mapping the peninsula from Kola to Kandalaksha while collecting zoological and botanical material. From 1843 to 1845, on behalf of the St Petersburg Academy of Sciences, he travelled to the Taymyr Peninsula and then along the coast of the Sea of Okhotsk and entered the lower Amur River valley.
