ARPEGES, Place Jules Janssen, F-92195, Meudon Cedex, France Received July 26; accepted November 21, 1995 Abstract. - CCD B and V observations of 16 low-surface-brightness galaxies and HI data for a subsample of 4 of them are presented. Both paired and isolated dwarf galaxies are observed to study possible environmental effects on their characteristics. Most of the observed galaxies are true dwarfs with -8.0 >= M_B_ >= -16.0, blue colours (0.16 <= B - V <= 0.76) and low central surface brightnesses 22.2 <= {mu}_B_ <= 24.0 mag arcsec^-2^. Most of them show exponential light profiles with a central light depression. About half of them have bright generally blue knots or peculiar loops. Key words: dwarf galaxies: surface photometry, HI observations
