[Annelida] The illustrated edition of Cuvier
(by g.read from niwa.co.nz)

I've received plate 22 thanks very much, and rather nicely drawn & most
useful it was too.
But if anyone is able & willing to scan all the plates & captions of
Les Annélides atlas I'd be happy to put them online.
I gather the text is pretty much unchanged from the second edition
(which is online already).
