The International Herpetological Symposium on Captive Propagation and Husbandry (IHS) began annual meetings in 1977. To this day, the symposium is greatest collaboration of professional herpetologists. The best of zoo personnel, and private reptile and amphibian breeders from around the world gather to exchange information. The proceedings are a compilation of presented papers, and contain some of the most important captive care and breeding information ever published. The published proceedings were printed in very small numbers for symposiums 1 to 16, and are quite rare. After an absence, publishing resumed with number 24, 25, and a combined 26, 27, 28 and 29 volume. To date, a total of 19 volumes have been printed. In separate auctions, I am offering the majority of these important, very scarce publications. Please check my additional auctions, as I will gladly combine shipping for a substantial discount.
