MantissaPlant. Mantissa Plantarum altera, &c. Regni Animalis appendix Linnaeus, C 1771 8vo 1771 The Work was issued as: Car. a Linne Mantissa Plantarum Generum editionis VI. et Specierum editionis II. 1767. pp.1-142. Car. A Linne Mantissa Plantarum Altera Generum editionis VI. & Speceirum editionis II. 1771 pp.143 -> Mantissae Prioris Additamenta Regni Animalis (commencing on approx. p.518) Aves extends from p.524-528. The use of periods at the end of specific epithets appears to be inconstant. The first three Aves are (p.524): leucoryn. LANIUS bicolor. LANIUS hematod. PSITTACUS followed by Aurora PSITTACUS mascarin PSITTACUS [NOTE: NO period] tridactylusALCEDO [NOTE: essentially NO space between the "s" and the "A" -- (v.i.)] No "period" endings to specific epithets on the next page. On p.526, following superbus PHASIANUS is written fenegal- TETRAO lus. This is the last of the birds with species epithets ending in periods. It is, I think, instructive. IF one argues the period is an abbreviation, and produced by space/printing constraints, the argument appears to fall in the instance of senegallus, where (presumably) due to space constraints the species epithet is split and hyphentated and would appear clearly NOT to be an abbreviation. [The "lus." segment of the word is 5 mm long; if it were printed as a single line it would just fit in front of "TETRAO" and the spacing would not appear to be tighter that the "tridactylusALCEDO" string on p.524. It would appear as "fenegallusTETRAO" with slightly more space than I can show here.] While examining two copies of this work in the Botany Library at the NMNH in March of 2001, Roy McDiarmid and I went over this issue in some detail with Dr. Dan Nicolson a very knowledgable botanist familiar with this work. His interpretation of the variable period endings on the species eipthets was that they probably appeared at least in part at the printer's whim, and may not have been a variable controlled by Linnaeus. It appears to me that the interpretation is that the Linnaen names were "leucoryn" "hematod" and "mascarin"

Mess.Orn. Messager Ornithologique. 1910-17 Moscow 1-8 This serial lists three Serial names on the cover: In Cyrillic -- "Ornitologiskii Vyestnik" [my trans: Ornithological Herald] Below this -- "Messager Ornithologique" and below this -- "Ornithologische Mitteilungen" On the First page the Header starts with the French, the German is on the bottom and the Russian in much larger font is in the middle. The German is in the smallest of the three fonts in this top-of-page banner. I can only speculate as to the preference for referring to this by the German title. The text (of the numbers I have examined) is entirely in Russian, with scientific names and authors names written in Latin characters.

    Again, thanks to Norbert Bahr for clarifying the details on this publication. He writes (2006.03.26):
    Floericke was the editor of the first two volumes (1901,1901-02) of the journal
    "Mitt(h)eilungen des Österreichischen Reichsbundes für Vogelkunde und Vogelschutz in Wien".
    	After some years, he resumed as editor of the journal, which became
    "Mitteilungen über die Vogelwelt" 
    	from volume 5 (1905) on.
    	The number of issues appearing in this journal changed from four in vol. 1 (1901)
    	and 2 (1901-02) to 12 in vol. 3 (1902-03) and 4 (1904) and 24 in vols. 5-9
    	(1905-1909), and was reduced to 12 issues per volume later (1910-1914) and again
    	to 4 from 1915 to 1923; later, the numbers of issues were 2 to 12 in irregular

There is some uncertainty and disagreement regarding these dates. The span of dates is usually given as 1860 or 1861-1862, but Zimmer and CWR in his unpublished notes make it clear the first livraison appeared in 1859. Evidently it was issued in 24 parts (livraison) in 100 copies. Zimmer notes that Pt.1 was noticed in Ibis for Oct. 1859, Pts.2 and 3 in Ibis for April 1860. Zimmer indicates he was unable to determine the extent of each part, which renders the dating somewhat difficult. The CWR Unpublished notes on dates of publication have quite a few cards dealing with this work. One card states "Livr. 2-8 1860 contains up to p.151 at least (where P. meniscus is described.)" [Of interest, the card for Picus meniscus in the Richmond Index, is typewritten (I interpret it to be not the work of CWR himself) and has dates "1861? 1862?"]

    • CWR in his unpublished notes indicates that the:
      	"1st portion of the 3rd part (Trochilidae) issued about Dec. 1860. 
      	(Noted in Ibis , Jan, 1861, 108, as an early copy.)"
      Thus the publishing date is approximately 10 months later than the signature imprint date.
    • [Question of date 1862 vs 1863 split between p.118 and 143] Evidently split is at p.128
    • Further questioning of the date for vol.3 suggests that the entire volume may best be dated to 1863. Schulze et al. p.3050 date Rhopodytes from p.61 to 1863.

  • For both of these taxa, the Richmond Index lists 4 (!) sources: The Mus.Senck.; PZS; L'Echo (with a note that it was published elsewhere first); & Trans.Zool.Soc.Lond. III, part. 2 p.232 pl.16 (personatus) and pl.17 (leucogaster). The Trans.Zool.Soc.Lond. has a note "paper read Jan. 11, 1842" however the last digit in the year for the listing is not filled in, indicating that Richmond had not determined when the volume of the Transactions was in fact printed. Duncan's listing of dates of the PZS, also lists the dates of publication of the Transactions. Vol.3 part. 2 was published Jan 23, 1844.
