I have been trying to get a copy of the original description of the characoid fish Alestes stuhlmanni (Characidae or Alestidae, depending on your point of view).  It was described by Pfeffer, G.J. 1896. Die Fische Ost-Afrikas. Berlin, O. Elsner, 72 pp.
I have been unsuccessful so far in my attempts to borrow this book through our library and interlibrary loan, and although it is listed on the internet as being in the Library at the Natural History Museum, London, I have been unable to reach the librarian there.
I don't need the whole book, but I am not sure which pages contain the description of Alestes stuhlmanni.  It is probably only one or two pages at most.
Is there anyone who is willing and able to help me with this?
Thank you,
