Vol.2 Pt2 may have been printed in Rotterdam (see Zimmer). Whether all of vol.2 was published in 1868, or only Pt2 of Vol.2 is not clear to me. Papageien[Arndt] Vol. 1 1988 Vol. 2 1989 ...

Phys.Abh.Konigl.Akad.Wiss.Berlin (*Fortsetz.*) Physikalische (-Mathematische) Abhandlungen der Koniglichen Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin 1832-46 4to Berlin [ A continuation of Abh.Konigl.Akad.Wiss.Berlin ] Dates of publication are a question here. Numerous Lichtenstein taxa are listed as "1838". The Richmond Index in the entry for Hylomanes, published in the volume for 1838, has a note that says "One t.p. says '1839' + another '1840'" The Index lists this taxon as 1840. The Richmond Index in the entry for Hemignathus, published in the volume for 1838, has a note that says "One t.p. says '1839' + another '1840'" with an additional note that says: "Isis quotes the date as 1839. Rchb. in 1853 quotes the date as '1840'" The Index lists this taxon as 1840. In support of the 1840 date, Neave Index Zoologicus, and Sherborn all give a date of 1840 for Hemignathus. Olson SL and James HF, address this issue in Olson & James. 1995. Nomenclature of the Hawaiian Akialoas and Nukupuus (Aves: Drepanidini). Proc.Biol.Soc.Wash. 108(3):373-387. The date of "1839" as argued by Olson and James appears to have the best literature support. They do not discuss the evident comment by Reichenbach which would appear to be the main documented support for the year "1840". (Logically, given the history of publication for this series, I think 1840 is most likely historically correct but can not disagree with Olson and James' nomenclatural argument for 1839. They cite a review in Isis von Oken (1844, Heft XI: col. 842-854). That gives these dates of appearance for the volumes of the Abh. der Berliner Academie: 1832=1834 1833=1835 1834=1836 1835=1837 1836=(no entry) 1837=1839 1838=1839 (O&J question the possibility of a typo here) 1839=1841 1840=1842 1841=1843.

[Notes from the Society's Website: The name of the Society has remained much the same since 1772 except for the addition of the royal designation, and orthographic changes in the Swedish words for "physiographic" and "royal". The spelling Physiographiska appears to have been used as late as 1838; the spelling Fysiografiska appears to have been used as early as 1899. We find Kongliga (and Kongl.) as late as 1911 in a publication of the society entitled Eine neue Methode zur Zuckerbestimmung. It seems likely, however, that the change to Kungliga (and Kungl.) was complete by the end of World War One.] Jan Kaiser also notes: "...the Society was founded in 1772. In became "royal" [kongliga or kungliga as it is written from 1919} in 1778, so it very well may be that volume 1 of the Handlingar [Proceedings] were published in 1776."

"When a date is established by a letter of acknowledgement it is necessarily
later than the actual distribution of the part. Where therefore, the dates of
publication were frequently earlier than those here given, they were certainly
never later." (p.vii).
  • I am not certain if the listing is designating a difference between "Acknowledged by....", "Receipt acknowledged by ..." and "Recieved", but I strongly suspect that there is. I speculate that differing kinds of evidence exist: some from receipt logs, some from notifications of receipt mailed back to the orginating source, and some from other kinds of indicaitons. My suspicion is that "Receipt acknowledged" may be mailed notifications sent back to the originating source, and that these may well have the longest potential lag time between their dates and the actual dates of publication. Not knowing what means what, I retain the distinction in my listing below.

    	All of the PBSW papers prior to vol. 90 were issued as separate
    	papers and numbered; each had a date. Beginning with 90(1977), which
    	also spanned 2 years (1977 and 1978) as did several others, the
    	Proceedings were issued quarterly.

    Proc.IVth Int. Orn. Congress London June 1905 (Feb. 1907) This constitutes vol.XIV of Ornis. However as the time span of this publication lies entirely inside the date range of volume XIII of Ornis (i.e. one portion of volume XIII was published after all of "Vol. XIV" had been published), it is less confusing to refer to it by the "Proceedings" title.

    Proc.Linn.Soc.NewS.Wales The Proceedings of the Linnean Society of New South Wales 1877(1876)-86 Vol. I-X 8vo Sydney [ At least one volume (VI) crosses years.

Thus it appears for the first 3 vols. of the first series, anyway, that Mathews accepts the imprint date.] [Note that Peters 1:332 appears to make a bit of muddle of the citation for Astur pulchellus (now Accipiter novaehollandiae pulchellus). Peters attributes this to "Journ. Linn. Soc. London 16 p.131" and gives the date as 1881. CWR gives Trans. Linn. Soc. (London) Zool. vol.16 no.90 Jan. 26, 1882, p.131. CWR indicates that this is a new name for "Astur soloensis Ramsay (nec Latham), P.L.S.of N.S.W. iv. pt.1 p.66" [for which I have not found a separate card in the cardex]. A somewhat complicated relation exists among the "Proceedings" the "Transactions", and the "Journal of the Proceedings" and I can not completely rule out the possibility of the Peters citation having some validity, but by far the greatest likelihood is that the Richmond Cardex is correct.] The Prodeedings issued (in 1929) an Index to the Proceedings (1875-1925) which resolves many of the date uncertainties. In summary it appears that the dates in the Richmond Index comport with those listed in the Index from the Society. Dates for this serial, as listed in Peters Checklist should not be trusted.

    Proc.U.S.Natl.Mus. Proceedings of the U.S. National Museum 1878 -> A complex and not fully resolvable structure of publication. The volumes are comprised of both "numbers" (no.) and Facsciles. Evidently articles sometimes extend across fascicles, so the date of publication for a given fascicle may not pertain to the WHOLE fascicle. Data are taken from:
    1. The Richmond Index -- by all indications the most accurate and dependable source. Of note, in an unpublished letter from CWR to Witmer Stone (1930.07.07) he notes that his dates for this serial come from "carefully going over the Registrar's transportation books in which were given the the dates of receipt of the various signatures from the Government Printing Office, ... "
    2. Harris. 1928. The Condor XXX:4-118. "Robert Ridgway". --an excellent source which appears to largely agree with The Richmond Index.
    3. Foster, LS. 1892. Bulletin of the Unites States National Museum No.40 IV. "The Published writings of George Newbold Lawrence, 1844-1891." -- Full of inconsistencies and errors. I have not found it trustworthy for dates.
    4. Crombie, RI. 1994. "Herpetological Publications of the National Museum of Natural History (USNM), 1853-1994" Smithsonian Herpetological Information Service No. 101
    5. CW Richmond's annotations bound into the front of several of the copies of the Bound volumes of Bird Papers from this serial that are in the library of the Bird Division of the U.S.National Museum. This material exists in two forms: there are handwritten listings on very thin tracing type paper (in CWR's hand) and these have been transcribed as typewritten lists. The volume numbers of the listings do not exactly match the volumes as they are bound, and as the compilation consists only of the bird papers it is not possible to determine (from this material alone) the limits of the volumes. These listings include the signature number, the page numbers, the Date of delivery to the U.S. Nat. Museum, and the stereotype date. The listings cover 1878.03.27-1879.05.26 1880.03.27-1881.05.09 1882.06.14-1883.07.06 1885.07.08-1885.05.18 It is not clear if there are gaps in the coverage, and I suspect that there are, and that some listings may still exist but be bound in other copies of the Proceedings -- quite possibly somewhere else in the Bird Division or elsewhere at the National Museum.
    6. A List and Index of the Publications of the United States National Musuem (1875-1946). Smithsonian Institution United States National Museum Bulletin 193 This includes a note (p.39) regarding the Proceedings that reads: "Proceedings papers Nos. 1-760 were issued by signatures, and when the published date for a signature differs from the date it was received from the printer at the National Museum, the latter date has been used here as the actual date of publication. After No.760 each article has its actual date of publication recorded in the completed volume of Proceedings."
    7. Catalogue of Publication of the Smithsonian Institution (1846-1882) William J. Rhees, Chief Clerk of the Institution. p. ix, PROCEEDINGS OF THE U.S. NATIONAL MUSEUM. In imitation of those learned societies which publish periodically descriptions of new species, &c., in the form of proceedings of weekly or monthly meetings, and thus present to the world the discoveries connected with the establishment at the earliest practical moment, it appeared to be very desirable that the National Museum should have some medium of prompt publication for announcing descriptions of specimens received, (many of which are new species,) by correspondents of the Institution. To meet this want a fifth series of publications, (octavo) entitled "Proceedings of the National Museum" was commenced in 1880. They are printed in successive signatures as fast as material sufficient for 16 pages is prepared and distributed at once to scientific societies and leading active working naturalists in this country and in Europe,* each signature having printed at the bottom of its first page the date of actual issue, for settling any questions as to the priority of publication. Of this series, four volumes have been published, comprising 2,221 pages with 28 cuts and 19 plates. * Prof. Bairdís report of 1880. Ö Page x ... In the year 1862 the plan of stereotyping every article printed by the Institution was adopted, the plates being carefully preserved, thus making it practicable at any time to issue new editions except where expensive lithographic plates were used, a limited number, only of impressions from these having been taken. ... The printing of the Bulletins and Proceedings is authorized by the Department of the Interior and paid out of its fund. An edition of 1,000 copies is published of which one-half is distributed by the Department of the Interior and one-half by the Institution. As the pages are stereotyped, the cost of additional copies is slight; and for the purpose of making sure that a sufficient number of sets will be accessible forever Page xi to students in all parts of the world, it has been considered expedient to print 1,500 additional copies of each for incorporation in the miscellaneous collections. [APP notes: It is not clear how long this scheme of signature dating and stereotyping lasted. Thanks to Mark Brown for finding this descriptive and explanatory material (2009.01.02)]
    Crombie (p.2) makes the following important points: Regarding the dates of signatures and nos.
    
    	 "It was difficult to establish dates for earlier papers and in
    	some cases it was not possible. The earliest volumes of the
    	Proceedings were published by "signatures" of varying numbers of
    	pages. [Footnote, USNM Bull. (93):39. Proceedings papers Nos. 1-760 [vol. 1-11] 
    		were issued by signatures, and when the published date for a
    		signature differs from the date it was received from the
    		printer at the National Museum, the latter date has been used
    		here as the actual date of publication.  After No.760 each
    		article has its actual date of publication recorded in the
    		completed volume of Proceedings.] Often the end of a
    	given signature did not coincide with the end of a paper, so
    	portions of one paper may have appeared several months later. In
    	these cases I [Crombie] have attempted to give inclusive dates for
    	the entire paper, although the annotations for some
    	signatures are very confusing."
    
    	Regarding the relation between imprint dates and publication dates:
    "At the back of the table of contents in Proceedings volumes 9-11, there is an explanation that the articles were "stereotyped" on the date at the bottom of the signature page but that the actual date of publication for each signature is given in the front of the volume. In these cases both the "stereotyped" date and the later "published" date are given, with the latter assumed to be the correct date of publication. Unfortunately, there is no indication if the same situation obtained with volumes 1-8, and a search of the records in the Smithsonian Archives and Press did not clarify the problem. Consequently, the signature dates are regarded as publication dates for volumes 1-8; it should be emphasized that some doubt exists and that additional data in the future could modify these dates."
    
    	It appears to me [APP] that data from the Richmond Index and from his
    	listing of dates of receipt and stereotype dates that modifications
    	of some of these dates is necessary. In addition it appears from 
    	Richmond's data (which was unknown to Crombie) that the relationship 
    	between stereotyped date and date of availability suggests that 
    	contra to Crombie's approach, the stereotyped date can not 
    	be regarded as the "published" date for the early volumes.
    
    	Additionally I note that the pagination scheme employed changes.
    	Initially pagination was by volume.
    	Commencing with Volume 60 each article was given and article number
    	and paginated individually. Each article was still given a "No."
    	which was cumulative from the first No. of Vol.1.
    	The change in pagination commences with Vol.60 no.2396
    	With volume 83 in 1937, the scheme reverted to through pagination
    	of each volume.

Proceedings of the Scientific Meetings of the Zoological Society of London for the Year .... . Proceedings of the General Meetings for Scientific Business of the Zoological Society of London See PZS 1937 vol. 107 pt.1 April (Duncan) for a listing of dates of publication of the parts and numbers. Note, that Duncan's very helpful publication is often used as the source of authority for dates of publication for this serial. It appears to me that most of Duncan's data is simply a replication of the material that Sclater presented to the Society and that was published in the 1893 volume. It is interesting that these dates are "dates of receipt from the printers of the sheets of the Society's 'Proceedings'". It is a small and picky point, but the date of receipt of the "sheets" might preceed the date of "publication" (as defined by the ICZN) by a variable, but presumably short period. After 1860 The Proceedings were published in three parts every year, "in the months of May, August, and February, the part published in February completing the volume for the preceeding year." Starting in 1890 the Proceedings "for each year [were] issued in four parts, on the first of the months of June, August, October, and April, the part published in April completing the volume for the preceeding year." It is vitally important to understand that the Proceedings are demonstrated to exist in more than one "state". Edward Dickinson (in litt.) investigated the date status of Calyptomena whiteheadi as it appeared that 1888 was a likely date, while the Richmond Index (and Duncan's listing) indicated 1887. I understood it was Edward's intention to publish his findings. Initially Edward indicated to me that he thought that Richmond's date of 1887 was an error, and felt that no other interpretation was possible other than error on Richmond's part. (He seemed quite pleased by the idea of Richmond having made an error and felt that any suggestion of 1887 being correct was "ridiculous and illogical.") In support of his position he sent me a xerox copy of the page in question which included a running head referring to the November meeting (the Calyptomena sp. was described in the July meeting); the November meeting is known to have been published in 1888 not 1887. I speculated on the possibility of two (or more) states of the publication, based on having read notices in the Proceedings that the Society wanted subscribers to indicate whether they wanted their subscriptions filled as the numbers became available or as volumes were completed. Subsequently it is demonstrated that in one "state" the page in question has a blank lower half, and a running head referring to the July meeting. Only in the form that evidently was published for distribution as a completed volume (as opposed to individual numbers) is the lower half of the page printed, and the running head changed to refer to the November meeting. Despite his vehement opposition to the interpretation of the possibility of two "states" Dickinson's indefatigable efforts demonstrated that my thesis was in fact correct. Dickinson in fact became such an avid student of my thesis, and its implications that he prepared a more extensive treatment of this matter, which was published in J.Zool. 266:427-430. 2005. This date structure was apparently understood by Duncan, though he gives no comment on this issue. CW Richmond also clearly understood the nature of this problem (long before Duncan ever began work on his compilation). From my point of view this suggests that CW Richmond knew at least as much as Duncan about the history of this publication, and quite possibly more as he was working at a time more contemporaneous to the publication itself. The important lesson here is that simply looking at a given set of the Proceedings may easily lead to the wrong conclusion regarding the date of publication. I encounter workers that seem eager to dismiss the nature and quality of the data in the Richmond Index. This is unfortunate, as the quality of the data contained therein is, in my opinion, superb, and it creates the unfortunate situation where the interpretation that comes to mind is that the criticisms or skepticisms of the Richmond Index stem from its not being available or conventionally used. This seems a tragedy, as when it was available it cost (at $400) less than a single volume of the Cat.BirdsBr.Museum which in comparison is a relatively weak resource of much more variable quality than Richmond's Index. "Del." = Date of delivery Note, that Duncan's very helpful publication is often used as the source of authority for dates of publication for this serial. It appears to me that most of Duncan's data is simply a replication of the material that Sclater presented to the Society and that was published in the 1893 volume. It is interesting that these dates are "dates of receipt from the printers of the sheets of the Society's 'Proceedings'". It is a small and picky point, but the date of receipt of the "sheets" might preceed the date of "publication" (as defined by the ICZN) by a variable, but presumably short period. Duncan refers to the "lists of dates of publication of the 'Proceedings' 1830-1859 compiled by the late F.H. Waterhouse" (p.77) but remarkably makes no reference to the list published in the Prodeedings and presented by Sclater. Indeed it appears that Waterhouse may simply have replicated Sclater's list!

  • No date listed by Duncan.
  • Note from Taylor & Francis to Sclater included in the British Museum Copy (online) confirms Jan 28, 1853(!) for nos. 229, 230. This still seems very unlikely, as it implies that the latter part of an article (starting within a sentence) was published almost half a year before the initial part of the article (including the first part of the sentence) was published. More likely, it seems is that Fancis wrote "Jan 28", but he may have meant "Jun 28".

    "From an examination of the available account-books it appears that up to, and including the year 1860, payments were made always for sheets, and presumably the 'Proceedings' were available in that form as well as in the three paper-bound annual parts. Beginning with the year 1861, payments were made only for each completed part, and the issue of separate sheets seems to have ceased." (Duncan, 1937 p.71).
  • Duncan does not list a "Part" that continues from those above.
  • The Richmond Index DOES list part numbers continuing so that, for example examples from 1859 have both "pt.XXVII" and "pt.3". I reflect this in my citations by including both Parts indicated by Richmond.
  • Examination of some bound copies of the Proceedings, have so far left it uncertain exactly what was printed on the individual covers for the parts.
  • My suspicion is that the Richmond Index may accurately reflect the covers in which (at least some of) the Proceedings were issued.
  • The fact that at least at some times subscriptions were available in different schedules adds uncertainty to all this, and suggests that a single set examined may not solve the mystery.

  • After 1860 The Proceedings were published in three parts every year. In the 1864 number the pattern of publication is described thusly in endpapers to the volume: "in the months of May, August, and February, the part published in February completing the volume for the preceeding year." This description does not match the history given by Duncan in his 1937 publication. Starting with this year (1861) Richmond lists only Part I, II, or III for a particular year.

    In 1874 the Proceedings were published in four parts instead of three. Part I: Papers read in Jan. and Feb. Part II: Papers read in March and April Part III: Papers read in May and June Part IV: Papers read in Nov. and Dec. Thus it seems there was a summer recess with no papers read July-Oct. Duncan has a note concerning the four parts of year 1874: "I have been unable to see copies of thse four parts with their original covers. Probable pagination is given between brackets." This implies the original covers are necessary for determination of "Part" limits at least during this period.

  • Note: Beginning in 1904, and continuing until 1958, "Abstracts" of the Proceedings were publised well in advance of the Proceedings themselves. This fact appears to have been unknown to Duncan, or at least not mentioned in his review article. The Richmond Index lists at least two taxa (Babax waddelli and Pitta douglasi) with descriptions published in the Abstracts 6 months prior to their publication in the Proceedings. I enquired of Ann Sylph, librarian to the Society, regarding these abstracts, and her response is as follows:
    'Thank you for your enquiry, yours is the first I have received about the
    abstracts and I had not really looked at them before.
     
    According to P. Chalmers Mitchell in Centenary history of the Zoological
    Society of London 1929.
     
    "from 1904 on the Society has issued an "Abstract of the Scientific
    Proceedings" on the Monday following each Tuesday's Scientific Meeting,
    and [in] this, if it be required, new names with their diagnoses can be
    printed. A a further bibliographic convenience there was adopted in 1904
    the practice of printing on the cover of each Part of the Proceedings
    (the annual volume is published actually in four quarterly "Parts") the
    exact day on which the preceding Part appeared. The confusion between
    real dates and the often inexact dates on the publications therefore no
    longer exists in the case of our Proceedings."
     
    This sequence seems to finish with Abstract no. 401 dated Nov 24th, 1936.'

    Edward Dickinson pursued further matters that were suggested by some apparent irregularities in Duncan's expostion, and established further addtional data. I reproduce here his table of page breaks, as first published in the Journal of Zoology 266: 427-430. I have added some additional notes and queries.
    Table 1. Breaks between years in PZS volumes, details mainly according to Duncan (1937). For years prior to 1859 Duncan gave information based on the supply of printed pages from the printer to the PZS; dates are 'not before dates'; exactly how and when these pages were issued to members is not clear.
