  • S.I. acc. 1864.10.19 (p.160)
  • The pagination and signature structure of this number is of interest. 80 is the last page of the previous number so 81 would be expected to be found starting no.68. However no.68 starts with [97],98-112, followed by 97-160 (!) so pp. numbered 97-112 occur twice with different material on each.
    • As Daria Wingreen-Mason of the Cullman Library explains (in litt. 2006.05.12) "pages 81-96 (signature 6) misnumbered as 97-112, correct pagination resumes with signature 7."
    • The pagination can be given as [97],98-112,97[bis]-112[bis],113-160.
    • The signature notations, 6,6*,7,7*,8,8*,&c occur regularly through.

  • S.I. acc. 1865.07.10 (p.466)
  • It is clear that this number was not published until sometime in 1865.
    • On p.466, reference is made to an index of Consp.Gen.Av. published by E.J. Brill in 1865.
    • The cover (wrapper) includes a note indicating that the first two Hefte of 1865 have already been published.
    • The first two Hefte of 1865 have covers with notes proclaiming the future publication of the final ("Das Schluss") heft of 1864.
  • There is proof of delay until 1865, and establisment of the fact that the Numbers of this serial were not always published sequentially.
  • My interpretation of the Code indicates that the date for this Heft (Number 72) must currently be held to be 7 July 1865 (the accession date at the Smithsonian Institution. I would be interested to know of any earlier accession date for this Number.

  • The cover of the Jan. 1866 number includes text at the bottom stating:
    "Das Schluss-Heft des Jahrgangs 1864 wird in 14 Tagen nachgeliefert werden." I intperpret this as:
    "The final heft of the year 1864 will be delivered late in 14 days"
  • The earliest date that appears appropriate for this number would be 31 Jan. 1866.

    Which I translate:"The first Heft of 1867 appeared in the end of January 1867. The second heft is in press."
  • Thus this Nov. 1866 number could not have been published before the end of Jan. 1867, and should probably be dated 31 Jan. 1867, though most probably it was at least February or March before it was published.

Vol.7 1859 Tanysiptera galatea margarethae Heine 1860 J.Orn. 7(1859) no.42 p.406 H&M p.284 -- 1859 CWR note: "Not publ. until after Jan.22, 1860, see p.463" Muscicapa cassini Heine 1860 J.Orn. 7(1859) no.42 p.428 H&M p.692 -- 1859 Illadopsis Heine 1860 J.Orn. 7(1859) no.42 p.430 H&M p.601 -- 1860 Peters 10:247 (Deignan) -- 1860 (1859). Neave 2:768 -- [1860] 1859. CWR note: "Not publ. until after Jan.22, 1860, see p.463" Schulze Band 3 Lief 13 p.1670 -- "1859 [1860 VII]" JULY???? (=VII). Colobris rufiventris Heine 1860 J.Orn. Nov. 1859 7(1859) no.42 p.406 Pitta erythrogaster rufiventris (Heine) H&M p.338 -- 1859 Peters 8:317 (Mayr -- not good on dates here): -- 1859 CWR note: "Not publ. until after Jan.22, 1860, see p.463" Thus H&M follows Peters' inconsistencies in the dates of taxa from this volume (7) and number (42) dating it sometimes to 1859 (which we can assume is the imprint date) and once (Illadopsis) to 1860. The evidence in support of 1860 for all taxa from "no.42" includes: 1.) CWR's date and his note suggesting there is evidence on p.463 2.) Deignan's use of 1860 for Illadopsis (but he very well may simply have been following Richmond). 3.) Neave's apparently independant use of 1860. 4.) Shulze et al. using not just 1860, but dating this to July of 1860. 5.) Number 40 of this volume was accessioned by the Smithsonian on May 19, 1860 and thus it seems quite unlikely that even the numerically preceeding number was published in 1859 (though it must be noted that not only were the J.Orn. numbers usually long-delayed from their "specified dates" but also the sequence of publication does not always match the numerical order). The 1860 VII indicates a publishing date of July, 1860 for the November 1859 issue of J.Orn. (a delay of 8-9 months), and thus we can understand the consistent, contemporaneous, complaints about delayed publication of the Journal. Vol. 8 (at least from p.323 on, CWR note) Not published till Jan, 1861. Vol. 21 = yr. 21 ser.4 vol.1 no.123 May "published in June or later" [CWR: Ostinops atrocastaneus] CWR notes that the Ibis 1891, p.616 contains some information regarding the dates of publiction from the period 1887-1890. Edward Dickinson indicates (in litt. 2004.12.19) that this note gives evidence of tardy delivery of copies of the Journal to the UK and does not provide specific evidence that the publication itself was delayed, although it may suggest it. However there is unquestioned specific evidence of serious delay (see note below for Vol.34 "1887").

[Summary of problems and questions: 1. It is not clear that the hefte appeared in numerical sequence. In fact it appears very likely that they did not always appear in sequence. 2. It is clear that at least by the 3rd vol. (1855) that hefte were frequently (perhaps usually) delayed past the imprint month. 3. The cover notes indicate the publisher's awareness of public concern over the delays in publiction. These notes often only increase uncertainty about the actual dates of publication, without providing certainty. 4. It is probably reasonable to remain skeptical of the dates of apparent certainty that are supplied by the cover notes. ] Vol.40 note that the numbers are listed as Nos. 197, 197, 199, 200. the second "197" is a misprint for 198, even though the misprint is reproduced in the footer.
