A few additional notes:
  1. See Zimmer p.549 for a discussion of this complex situation.

  3. Tollitt, ME. 1986 discusses what he knew of the work, drawing on the detailed study by Sherborn (1897) as well as the work of additional authors. He applied to the Commission to have his findings and interpretations accepted and placed in the Official List of Works.
  4. As Tollitt appears to have been working in the office of the Secretariat of the ICZN. It appears that his recommendations were accepted. (Official Lists and Indexes of names and works in zoology. Supplement 1986-2000.
  5. Tollitt appears to have been unaware of Zimmer's work on this publication, and thus knew nothing (or at least mentioned nothing) of the existence of an entire component of the work ("Description de l'Égypte publié par les ordres de Napoléon-Le-Grand. Histoire Naturelle. Supplément No. 1. Observations sur le systèm des oiseaux de l'É et de la Syrie, par Jules-César Savigny, Membre de l'Institug d'Égypte. 1 vol. 4vo pp.1-54. 1811.
  6. This component of the work was also unknown to Sherborn.
  7. Coues Ornithological Bibliography Coues E. 1879. "Third installment of American Ornithological bibliography" Bull. U.S. Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories V no.4 pp.754-755 further suggests that Tollitt's study of this work might have benefitted from a greater breadth of investigation. Coues lists the title as

    	a l'Assemblée Générale de la Commission, | le 29 Août 1808, | Par

    Petite édition, revue par l'auteur, tirée à 30 examplaires. Extraite de la Desc. de l'Égypte Partie Systématique, Oiseaux de l'É et de la Syrie. Exemplaire dans la Bibliothèque de l'Acad. des Sc. Nat. de la Philadelphie, inscrit "à M. Latrielle, comme un témoignage des sentimens de l'auteur" (autographe de l'auteur), plus tard présentée à l'Acadéie par M. le Cr. T. B. Wilson.

    Coues notes, that the copy he examined is annotated in Savigny's handwriting and was presented by him to Latreille. Of note is the inconsistent use of E or É in l'Egypte so it appears that there very well may be variability in the text itself. If this variability is in fact real, it would tend to give the impression that these diacritical marks are more useful for ostentation than for understanding. Coues' discussion appears to suggest yet another component portion of this work, apparently similar to that described by Zimmer. It does not appear that Tollitt knew of Coues' work or of the copy which he examined (this work does not appear to be listed in the Online Catalogue of the Philadelphia Academy).
  8. On an more minor point, I wonder about the variable orthography used in representing the title (l'Egypte vs l'Égypte). With Tollitt employing the former, and Zimmer, AOU, CWR, and Cat.BooksLibr.B.M.(N.H.) the latter, and Coues variable. (Tollitt does employ the accent aigu on lower case letter "e", and a non-italicized É occurs in his quotation on p.108 (paragraph #9, line 3), so it is not as if diacritical marks were completely ignored in his publication.) I expect "l'Égypte" is probably correct. In Sherborn's treatment of this work, he employs É in all instances but on (p.286) where it is inside a quotation and may be accurately reflecting Isidore Geoffroy's text in Du Petit Thouar's work. My copy of Le Petite Larousse (1963) spells the word "Égypte" and the accent aigu is used also on all the derived forms of the word. However, it must be noted that I find a single use of "d 'Egypte" (without the accent aigu on p.[1332]).
    I generally prefer to avoid diacritical marks entirely, as I feel they produce more in the way of confusion and problems than they add in terms of clarity and understanding, but I understand that others hold strong opposing opinions. I suppose it is possible that limitations of the press for Tollitt might have permitted the use of é and É, but not the italicised version (É) though this appears unlikely. If such were the case, again I would encourage excluding diacriticals entirely in the hopes of avoiding the impression of ostentation parading as erudition.

    The variability in the use of diacriticals in Coues' presentation suggests the very real possibility of variability in the work itself, and even the possibility of different "states". Given the fact that there appear to be entire components of the work unseen and unmentioned by both Sherborn, and Tollitt that the full state of affairs with regards this publication was not known to either. It is certainly not impossible that Tollitt's representation of the diacritical marks (or lack thereof) may accurately reflect a copy he personally examined. Though, I must note that Tollitt makes no mention of what sets (if any) he has actually seen.

  9. Additionally important material relating to this work, and unmentioned by Tollitt, can be found in the Willughby Society 1883 Reproduction of Audouin's Explication Sommaire Des Planches d'Oiseaux de l'Égypte et de la Syrie Publiées par Jules-César Savigny. This includes notes by Alfred Newton, and a discussion of Savigny's blindness. Excerpts from a 19 March, 1825 letter by the Minister of the Interior (M. Corbière) relating to this are included. Sherborn refers to this reprint (p.287) so I presume that Tollitt pursued this lead, but felt it was not worthy of mention.
  10. I certanly have never seen this work and it sounds as if it is unlikely that all component parts of "the work" exist together in any one place. It also appears there may be definitional problems determining which materials should be considered as part of "the work". However, particularly with publications from this period the possibility of multiple "states" of publication must be considered, which Tollitt does not seem to have done. It does not appear to me that any currently recognizable nomenclatural problems will result from Tollitt's actions, even though they appear to me to have been taken based upon a partial understanding of the complexities of the situation.

The dates of publication of the various volumes appears to be somewhat uncertain. Vol.38, for example is usually listed as 1825, which I assume is the imprint date. However, occasionally it is listed as 1826. The HBW vol.2 uses 1826 for the citations for vol.38. In this they are in the minority, and do not give supporting evidence pro 1826. A substantial number of dates in vol.2 are demonstrably incorrect. Therefore, for the moment, I continue to use 1825 (2000.12.02).
Dict.Univ.Hist.Nat.[Orbigny,C] Dictionnaire universel d'Histoire Naturelle. Resumant et completant tous les faits presentes par les encyclopedies, les anciens dictionnaires scientifiques, les oeuvres completes de Buffon, et les meilleurs traites speciaux sur les diverses branches des sciences naturelles... Orbigny, Charles Dessalines d' [ed.] Paris 8vo First edition 1839 (sometimes given as 1837), reissued -- evidently with changes -- multiple times. This work has a complex bibliographic and publishing history. Fortunately, the details were carefully investigated and reported by C. Davies Sherborn and T.S. Palmer. (1899). Sherborn CD, Palmer TS. 1899 "Dates of Charles d'Orbigny's 'Dictionanaire Universal d'Histoire Naturelle' 1839-1849." Ann.Mag.Nat.Hist.(7) 3:350-352. Unfortunately, this work has, it seems been almost universally ignored, and demonstrably incorrect representations have been reproduced without comment. In brief, Sherborn and Palmer report the results of collation and comparison of five copies of the 'Dictionnaire' and show that with the exception of volume I, there was "only one composition". The five copies examined were from the B.M. (N.H.) General Library, the B.M. (N.H.) Tweeddale copy, the Zool.Soc., the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, and the U.S. Nat. Mus. Of these five copies one would almost certainly be mislead by all but the U.S. Nat. Mus. copy., which in Sherborn and Palmer's estimation was the only copy which (with the exception of vol. ii) was apparently an original issue. Sherborn Palmer Ann.Mag.Nat.Hist. Dates 1 pp.350,351 (opens in new window) Sherborn Palmer Ann.Mag.Nat.Hist. Dates 2 p.352 (opens in new window)
In contrast to the tabulation included in Sherborn's paper, it would appear that additional states of this publication exist. Daria Wingreen has examined for me the copy of this work in the Cullman Library, at the U.S. National Museum. She reports that the copy there:
  1. has no dates on the title pages (vol.I-IV checked)
  2. has sous as the final word on p.100 of volume I (indicating a non-first state printing).
  3. Has a note indicating it was acquired from the Library of Peru in 1945
  4. Has an additional note indicating that the copy previously in the Nat. Museum Library has now gone to the Library of Congress.


Dierentuin Die Dierentuin De Dierentuin van het Koninklijk Zoölogisch Genootschap "Natura Artia Magistra" te Amsterdam zoölogisch geschetst Schlegel, Hermann, 1804-1884. Title: De Dierentuin van het Koninklijk Zoölogisch Genootschap "Natura Artia Magistra" te Amsterdam zoölogisch geschetst / door ... H. Schlegel ; met historische herinneringen van P. H. Witkamp, &c. Publisher info: Amsterdam, 1863- 1872 -72. Physical descrip: 4 v. [in 1] : illust. 4o. Corporate author: Koninklijk Zoölogisch Genootschap. The date of this publication is problematic. Peters Checklist gives it a 1864. The Cat.BooksBr.Mus. says the publication commenced in 1862, though most library listings show it as starting in 1863. The unpublished notes on Dates of Publication indicate that up through p.75 at least (i.e. Lief. 1 & 2) were given as 1864 with a reference to Hartlaub (see Berichte ... Vögle p.3). For the moment I use 1864, but am uncertain what the imprint date is, let alone the actual date of publication.

DurbanMus.Novit. Durban museum novitates. 1, Je 1914+; suspended O 1922-My 1930. Apparently not always published in sequence. Vol. 7 no.11 and 12 appear (for instance) to have been published after Vol.8 no.1 (see below). The Smithsonian Library catalogues the publication from 1952-1989 as "irregular". A listing of citations demonstrates both the irregularity of publication as well as the example (Vol.7 nos. 11 & 12 at least) of non-sequential publication. I extracted a number of citations and listed a thumbnail of the values below. The data are necessarily incomplete for the nubmbers in each volume. I am unaware (2008.03.29) of anyone commenting on the lack of sequential publication (presumably due to delay) in volume 7. These data are derived from various sources, and especially the Richmond Index, though not all entries have been identified there. The listing of "Post-Peters" Taxa from Norbert Bahr and Edward Dickinson was also of help.
