good news that you obtained this work.
> while for a smaller number, the names in the 1944 work
> are nomina nuda (no type species being designated) 
Check those genera carefully: type species may also have been fixed 
by monotypy or absolute tautonymy in the 1944 work, original 
designation is not needed. The Code only says "must be fixed in the 
original publication", it does not say "designated".
