Note: Attribution of authority is a bit confused in this work, with newly named taxa attributed to Children, Vigors & Children, or Children & Vigors. My working notes collating the various representations are as follows:
  • Bob Dowsett informs me (in litt. 2006.06.30) that review of the original descriptions and additional supporting evidence (including Zool.J. 1827 p.452) argues for Children & Vigors as the proper authority for the taxa named as new in this work.

  • All plates numbered, except no.15
  • Plates have address "No. 13 Panton St."

  • Published from Jan. 1790 to July 1790
  • 3 plates in each monthly number except 4 in April 1790
  • There are two Actinia anenome plates for April.
  • All plates are dated.

  • All plates are dated, save the additional plate which appears to have come out in February.
  • In the Bancroft Library copy, the addtional plate (no.59) is bound before plate no.58.
  • III 75-89 1791
  • All plates are dated; three plates per monthly number
  • CWR unpubl. notes "saw cover of no. XXIX dated MDCCXCI" (no.XXIX would be the number for December, 1791).
  • CWR Psittacus concinnus Vol.III No.5 Dec., 1791 pl.87+text
  • Note Sherborn in his 1895 Ann.Mag.Nat.Hist. XV:375 article indicates plate no.87 is the last plate for 1791, the first of several of his demonstrable errors in this piece. This would imply that plates 88, and 89 should date to 1792, however Sherborn himself dates these two taxa (Xiphias platypterus and Lacerta unistriata) to 1792 in his Index Animalium (pp.759,1019 of his 1902 volume).
  • Additionally Sherborn's listing implies the December number contained only one plate.
  • Clearly Sherborn himself did not follow the dates he had published in the Ann.Mag.Nat.Hist., though he cites that as the only reference for Nat.Misc. dates in this 1902 volume!
  • While Sherborn felt free to ingnore his Ann.Mag.Nat.Hist. compilation of dates, other workers have generally treated this work as the final word on the matter.
  • Having gotten himself "out-of-sequence", it would appear that NO subsequent Nat.Misc. dates from Sherborn's Ann.Mag.Nat.Hist. piece should be trusted without additional verification. Clearly Sherborn appears to have ignored his work when determining some dates, and since he gives no indication when it should be ignored, and when heeded, it would appear wisest to ignore his Ann.Mag.Nat.Hist. work for dates entirely.
  • III 90-110 1792
  • Three plates per monthly number
  • CWR Psittacus eximius Vol.III No.7 Feb., 1792 pl.93+text
  • CWR Psittacus pulchellus Vol.III No.8 March., 1792 pl.96+text
  • Plate no.99 Casuarius australis is undated, but it would be expected to be the first plate in the April number. CWR dates this plate to April 1792.
  • Published from Jan. 1792 to 1 July 1792
  • Sherborn's Ann.Mag.Nat.Hist. listing is necessarily out of sequence as he considers the number to start with no.88 instead of no.90. He does include the correct ending plate (no.110) which implies he believed there were extra plates published in the number; all the plates but one are dated which makes this seem most unlikely.
  • One notes with some interest that the July plates are dated as published July 1st, 1792, which would have been a Sunday. Whether a Sunday publication is likely or not, I have no idea.
  • IV 111-125 1792

      • CWR lists Vol. IX No.6 Feb., 1798 pl.321+text
      • Lisney indicates (p.238) that for this year it is "probable that four [plates] were issued in each monthly number"; this would make Feb. 1798 highly likely, and 1797 extremely unlikely.

    The most complete discussion of this work known to me is: A Bibliography of British Lepidoptera 1608-1799. Arthur A. Lisney The Chiswick Press London 1960 (Privately printed) There are a significant number of disagreements between Lisney's collation, and the tabular representation by Sherborn. Unfortunately, a listing showing which plates have which dates has not been published. This would substantially increase the certainty with regard to a number of the dates at issue. Sherborn's dates appear to be those that have been followed by many of the more careful workers (many dates alternatively are listed that simply seem to be repetitions of previous errors). It appears that Sherborn's dates may be incorrectly worked out. Subsequently, an important and detailed publication undertakes a careful review of the dates of publication for this work. "Vivarium naturae or the naturalist's miscellany (1789-1813) by George Shaw: an assessment of the dating of the parts and volumes" Edward C. Dickinson Murray D. Bruce Robert J. Dowsett. Archives of Natural History 33:322-343. It is worth noting that for avian names this detailed investigation shows that the dates determined by Charles W. Richmond, and previously published are all correct.

(ref. Mees GF 1973 "Once more: the identity and authorship of Treron griseicauda." BBOC. 93(3):119-120.). He indicates that Schlegel In Ibis 1863 5:119-120 indicates that the first nine sheets of this serial were printed around the middle of 1862, but that "publication of this work can only begin with 1863." [APP: exactly what that means is not clear to me] That issue of the Ibis contained a review of Schlegel's paper, and an article by Wallace discussing it. This indicates that the Schlegel article was published well before the July Ibis but possibly well before Wallaces PZS publication of Treron griseicauda. It must be mentioned that Mees' speculation was based in part on his belief (based on Duncan 1937) that the issue of PZS in question was published in April of 1863. The Richmond Index indicates that that issue of the PZS was published in February, not April. In my view the date of the Richmond Index is much more likely to be correct than Duncan's date, and it makes it more likely that Schlegels article could have been published in 1863, though I agree 1862 must remain a speculative possibility.

    On examining the copies of Nomenclatoris zoologici index universalis in the Herpetology Division of the U.S. National Museum, I found, tipped in a copy of a two-page paper by Donovan and Smith, which I here reproduce.
    	The Dates of Publication of Louis Agassiz'
    		Nomenclator Zoologicus
    	Donovan, R. Bowley and Horbart M. Smith
    	Most copies of Agassiz' Nomenclator Zoologicus are bound without
    the original covers, and since no other single source gives the dates
    of publication of all parts, which are of considerable nomenclatural
    importance, we here place on record the information on publication 
    dates that has been gleaned from a copy in the Library of the Museum
    of Comparative Zoology. This copy was presented by Alexander Agassiz to 
    Walter Faxon, who in turn bequeathed it to the Library, in which it was
    accessioned October 16, 1934.
    	As given to the printed cover of each fascicle, the publication
    dates and contents of the separate fascicles are as follows:
    	Fasciclus I 	(Mammalia, Echinodermata et Acelephas): 1842.
    	Fasciclus II 	(Aves): 1842.
    	Fasciclus III et IV 
    		(Crustacea et Vermes, i.e. Entozoa, Turbellaria et Annulata; 
    		Hemiptera et Infusoria; Polygastrica et Rotataria): 1843.
    	Fasciclus V et VI 
    		(Neuroptera, Orthoptera, Polypi et Reptilia): 1844.
    	Fasciclus VII et VIII 
    		(Mammalia (addenda), Aves (addenda), Reptilia (addenda),
    		Pisces, Crustacea (addenda), Hemiptera (addenda), 
    		Orthoptera (addenda), Neuroptera (addenda), Hymenoptera,
    		Vermes (addenda), Rotatoria (addenda), Polygastrica (addenda),
    		Echinodermata (addenda), Acalephas (addenda), et Polypos (addenda):
    	Fasciclus IX et X 
    		(Titulum et Praefotionem Operis, Mollusca, Lepidoptera, 
    		Strepsiptera, Diptera, Myriapoda, Thysanura, Thyusanoptera, 
    		Suctoria, Epizoa et Arachnidas): 1846.
    	Fasciclus XI
    		(Coleoptera): 1846.
    	Fasciclus XII
    		(Indicem Universalem): 1847.
    	Of additional special interest to nomenclature is the indicated date of
    publication of the Index Universalis, which has been almost universally accepted
    as 1846 in conformance with the date printed on the title page. It is presumed
    that the title page was printed with other parts in 1846, but that the Index
    actually did not appear until 1847. Carus and Englemann (1861, Bibliotheca
    Zoologica: 238), in fact, give the date 1848 for the Index, presumably in error.
    	A note is pencilled in on the title page of another copy of the Nomenclator in
    MCZ Library, giveing the date of publication of a "fascicle 13" as 1847, but
    presumably it refers actually to fascicle 12, and may aid in confirmation of
    1847 as the date of publication for the Index.
    	Although "Infusoria" appers on the cover of fasciculus III-IV, the name
    does not appear on the title page of either fasciculus, nor does material
    pertaining to this group appear in either the Nomenclator or the Index Universalis.
    	Although "Infusioria" appears on the cover of fasciculus III-IV, the name does
    not appear on the title page of either fasciculus, nor does material pertaining
    to this group appear in either the Nomenclator or the Index Universalis.
    	The Faxon copy is bound with the three parts not regularly present in other
    copies: a "Prospectus" for the work, a "Lecori Benevolo", and author-publisher
    notes. None of these parts, for example, is present in the other two copies in the 
    Museum Library, and only one of them (the "Lectori Benevolo") is bound with the 
    copy in the University of Illinois Library.
    	An interleaved annotated copy of the Nomenclator, bound in four volumes, from
    Agassiz' personal library, now exists in the Rare Book Room of the Library of the
    Museum of Comparative Zoology.

These are the stamp dates, given in British format day/month/year; they are all 18-- 1864 Tom 1 1st fasc 8/11/65; 2nd fasc unstamped, 3rd fasc. unstamped, 4th fasc includes a Bulletin stamped 10/10/66. 1866 vol 2 1st fasc unstamped, fasc 2 6/12/66, fasc 3 9/1/67, fasc 4 9/4/67 1867 vol 3 23/7/68 1868 vol 4 8/12/69 1869 vol 5 9/5/72 1870 vol 6 9/5/72 1871 vol 7 24/4/73 Yours M Daniels' These dates suggest a substantial number of taxa may need alterations of date. My examination of the set at the Library of the National Museum of Natural History shows the following:
  • The Fascicules are stamped with apparent acquisition dates (from early in the 20th century, and the volumes are stamped with what I interpret to possibly be binding dates (from late in the 20th century). Then covers, when bound in the back of the volume, have pasted on an oblong of paper, which I presume to be the label from the wrapper of the Fascicule. It contains the Tome and Fascicule number and the list of articles from the Memoire and Bulletin (if present). The later examples have handwritten indications of the pagination and plate numbers included. Tome Premier: 1865 Premier Fascicule: pp.1-64 Deuxième Fascicule: pp.65-184 "NOTA. -- Les planches devant être réunies par ordre de numéros à la fin du volume, il ne faut attacher aucune importance à leur disposition passagèer dans les fascicules." [APP note: this notice continues on the foot of all subsequent fascicule covers]. Troisième Fascicule: pp.185-256 Quatrième Fascicule: pp.257-319 (and plates). [APP: bound with this is the Bulletin, noticed on the cover of the Premier Fascicule, but bound without an apparent cover (page preceeding the first page of the Bulletin, is the last page of the 4me Fascicule). Bulletin: pp.1-80 (and plates) Tome Deuxième: 1866 Premier Fascicule: pp.1-80 Deuxième Fascicule: pp.81-176 Troisième Fascicule: pp.177-288 [Note: APP rec'd Br.Mus. 1867.09.01 (Sept.)] Quatrième Fascicule: pp.289-313 (and plates). [Note APP: rec'd Br.Mus. 1867.09.04 (Sept.)] [APP: bound with this is the Bulletin, noticed on the cover of the Premier Fascicule, but bound without an apparent cover (page preceeding the first page of the Bulletin, is the last page of the 4me Fascicule). Bulletin: pp.1-[41] (and plates) Tome Troisième: 1867 Premier Fascicule: pp.1-?64 [Note APP: This volume in the Smithsonian copy has the Fascicule covers bound in the back of the volume, and the last article of the Fascicule is continued in the 2me Fascicle. The physical structure of the volume suggests that p.64 is the end of the Premiere Fascicule. Of interest at the foot of p.64, the Smithsonian copy has a date stamp in blue ink that reads "Dec. 17, 1868" In discussing this with Leslie Overstreet of the Cummins Library of the Smithsonian, she speculated that this stamp date may well be an accession stamp for the Smithsonian Library (though it must be noted she did not see the stamp in question).] Deuxième Fascicule: pp.?65-?128 [Note APP: The last article of 2me Fascicule is completed in the 3me Fascicule, my guess as to the termination of the Fascicule is based on the presence of the end of signature #16. The Bulletin is noticed on the cover of the 2me Fascicule (but not on the 1er or 4me).] Troisième Fascicule: pp.?129-?176 Quatrième Fascicule: pp.?177-192 (?and plates). [Note APP: The Smithsonian copy has "Dec. 17, 1868" stamped in blue ink at the foot of p.192.] Bulletin pp.[1-3],4-96 [Note APP: The Smithsonian copy has "Dec. 17, 1868" stamped in blue ink at the foot of p.8. The the right foot of p.96 has text "(La suite au prochain volume.)" [suite="the rest"; prochain=near, nearest, next] Following p.96 is a leaf with unnumbered pages with "TABLE DES MATIÈRES" on verso and "LISTE DES PLANCHES." on recto. The Smithsonian copy has "Dec. 17, 1868" stamped in blue ink at the foot of the recto.] Tome Quatrième: 1868 [Note APP: Smithsonian Copy Title page has pencilled note: "Pages mixed in binding"] Premier Fascicule: pp.[1]-?68 [Note APP: The Bulletin is noticed on the cover of all four Fascicules; David's article detailing the voyage au Mongolie (which occupies pp.1-24,25-72, ) is noticed on the covers of Fascicules 1,2,3, (but not 4). Deuxième Fascicule: pp.[69]-116 Troisième Fascicule: pp.117-?138 Quatrième Fascicule: pp.?139-?[186] (?and plates). Bulletin pp.[3]-24. [Note APP: The Smithsonian copy has "Nov 11 1872" stamped in blue ink at the foot of the recto of p.89 [=p.[90] of Bulletin. the font of the date stamp is different than that in the volumes noted above and it differs in style, not having a period after the month abbreviation nor a comma after the day number.] Tome Cinquième: 1869 Premier Fascicule: pp.[1]-56 Bulletin: pp.1-8 with Date stamp in blue ink "Nov 11 1872" at foot of p.8 with font and style as noted in Tom. 4. Deuxième Fascicule: pp.[57]-?120 Bulletin: pp.9-24 with Date stamp in blue ink "Nov 11 1872" at foot of p.24 with font and style as noted in Tom. 4. Troisième Fascicule: pp.?121-?216 Quatrième Fascicule: pp.?217-?276 (?and plates). Bulletin: pp.25-[?64] with Date stamp in blue ink "Nov 11 1872" at foot of p.[?64] with font and style as noted in Tom. 4. [Note APP: From the material examined so far, I am unable to be certain of the publishing history for this serial. One guess is that the pattern may be reflected in the bound volume 5 (1869). If this is so, then it suggests that parts of the Bulletin sometimes were published with Fascicules (and sometimes not). This possibility would appear to be strongly supported by the lack of any "Bulletin" covers bound with the volumes. Certainly articles often continued across Fascicules, and it appears that the Bulletin articles may well have as well. The timing and organization of the plate publishing is uncertain.] Tome Sixième: 1870 [Note APP: The Fascicule covers have written in ink the pp. and pl. components, and (starting with F. 2) the Smithsonian Accession Date] Premier Fascicule: pp.1-56 pl.3-789 [Note APP: I note that it appears the last (numbered) plate was published first. The "789" may refer to the figures on the plate, though there are 8 figures(!).] Deuxième Fascicule: pp.73-160 pl.1-2.88 [Note APP: Smithsonian accession date 1877.12.03] Troisième Fascicule: pp.161-248 Bulletin: pp.1-24 pl.I. [Note APP: Smithsonian accession date 1877.12.03] Quatrième Fascicule: pp.249-302 pl.10-16 Bulletin: pp.25-40 pl.2-3 "NOTA.-- Les planches qui manquet à fascicules seront jointes avec la table du tome VI des Nouvelles Archives du Muséum, au primier fascicule du tome VII." and there is written in ink "pl.17-20". Tome Septième: 1871 Premier Fascicule: pp.1-56 [Note APP: p.56 with Date stamp in blue ink "Nov 11 1872" at foot of p.8 with font and style as noted in Tom. 4.] Deuxième Fascicule: pp.57-104 Bulletin pp.1-24 [Note APP: Bulletin: p.14 dated at bottom "(Notes du voyageur, 4 novembre 1871)."

Thus highly likely that this is the end of the Fascicule 1 (though not otherwise determinable by the structure and data of the volume to hand.] [Note APP: Smithsonian copies with covers bound in back have an oblong of paper pasted on to the cover.

It appears that the Bulletin was published in parts along with the Memoires, though very often the Bulletin is bound together as a unit at the end of the (library) bound volumes. It is therefor difficult to be certain of the dating of the (un-named) parts of the Bulletin.]

Novi Commentarii academiae scientiarium imperialis Petropolitanae (New memoirs of the Imperial Academy of Sciences of St. Petersburg) Successor journal to Commentarii. Published in 21 vols. from 1747 to 1778. By 1750 political chaos had casued significant publication lags in the Commentarii which was by then 10 years behind authorship. Articles written over the course of six years were bound into the two final volumes of the Commentarii (13 & 14), and then publication passed to the Novi Commentarii. Of interest, Euler published extensively in the Novi Commentarii publishing 179 articles between 1750 and 1776.

This was apparently maintained from vol. 1 (1894) through vol. 17 (1910) Vol. 18 is published in 1911, but no.3 of that series was published Jan. 31, 1912. The sequence then appears to return to normal until the latter portion of vol. 34 (1927) when no.3 was not published until July 31, 1928. All subsequent volumes (at least until 1932) appear to have been published one year delayed from the one that would be predicted from the original sequence.

  • Published in Pisa, and some confusion surrounds the dates and structure of this source. Collecting data predominantly from taxa in Sherborn, Neave, and the Richmond Index I have determined the likely structure must be similar to this.
