Nos. 1-6. 1835 London, W. Phillips. This Journal was the result of the splinter group (essentially Quinarian in nature) that broke from the Linnean Society. This group progressed as the Zoological Club of London to the Zoological Society of London, with its Proceedings. vol. 1 as both 1824 and 1825, split between 412 and 466 Journal definitely started in 1824. (See Soc.Hx. of Nat. Hx. Newsletter 51. Jan 1995. Article 11.) But, if and when a break occured is not clear. Article states: "vol [1?] is stated to be the collected issues 'from March 1824 to January 1825'." This is evidently on the title page of vol. 1. vol. 3 vast majority of citations are given as 1827. CWR gives later pp. as Dec 1827 or "Dec" 1827. However, in the Richmond Index, the card for from p.356 of no.XI is written as 1827, and corrected to 1828. Peters volumes give a few as 1827 (1828). For many citations given as "1828" Sherborn lists: "Aug.-Nov." [i.e.Dec 31] 1827." Whether or not some parts of vol 3. were published in 1828 is a question, though the basis for this possibility is not clear. I currently give all vol.3 's as 1827. In support of this,Mathews says (Bibliography, Birds of Australis p.131). "Zoological Journal, Vol. III. (pt.10), pp. 158-175, April-Sept. No., Sept. 1827; (pt.11), pp. 343-463, Sept.-Dec. 31st No., Dec, 31st, 1827." [APP: Mathew's dating is revelatory, as Dec. 31st, 1827 was a Sunday. Thus, it appears the Mathews did not have specific information about the date of availability but rather had reason to believe that it was available sometime in 1827. I am subsequently (2006.07.09) not so convinced of what this means. Societies certainly met not infrequently on Sundays in the 19th century. I wonder, as well, what Mathews' dates refer to -- publishing dates? meeting dates? or even if he knew himself? ] Mark Brown communicates (in litt. 2007.05.21). In Monographia heliceorum viventium by L. Pfeiffer (1848) he lists the dates for the Z. J. as: Vol. I N.1-3 1824, N.4 1825 Vol. II N.4-7 1825 N.8 1826 Vol. III N. 9-11 1827. 12 1826 Vol. IV N. 13 & 14 1828, N.15 & 16 1829 Vol. V N.17 & 18 1830, N.19 1831, N.20 1834 When sold as a group it was sold as five books volumes 1-5 and one book- plates only, six altogether.

Zool.NewHolland Zoology and botany of New Holland and the isles adjacent Shaw, George [1751-1813] London J. Sowerby, 1793 [ ? 1794 ] 33 p., 12 leaves of plates : col. ill. ; 29 cm. Smith, James Edward, Sir, [1759-1828] Sowerby, James, [1757-1822]
Uncertainties exist regarding the dates of taxa from this work, and I asked Daria Wingreen-Mason of the Cullman Library at the Smithsonian Institution. As always, her careful and knowlegable work produced interesting results, and I include some of those here (2007.01.24) :
At the bottom of the first page of Gmelin's article on Shaw's Zoology of New Holland
("Auszuge aus G. Shaw's Thiergeschichte von Neuholland." in Gottingisches Journal
der Naturwissenschaften. Bd.1: Hft.2, pg.143-148) there is a footnote citing that v.1:
nos.1-2 of Shaw's Zoology were published in 1794, and no.3 was published in 1795.

The article on Shaw's Zoology of New Holland, as you will see, contains references to
the entire publication i.e. there is a footnote pertaining to each plate.  According
to Engelmann, the British Museum catalog, and Nissen (Zoo.), together, the three parts of
the Zoology of New Holland consist of 33 pages and 12 color plates (by Sowerby).
Given that plates IX and X are dated 9 Sept 1794, it is suspect indeed that Mathews states the
Linn. Soc. received pt. (i.e. no.) III on 4 Feb 1794; but it would not be the first
time plates were printed and issued before the text, even though it was not a very common
practice. And as you say, it very well could be a typo.

I found in our collection an incomplete copy of Shaw's Zoology of New Holland. It
is *bound-in* with three other titles that were originally issued simultaneously by Shaw,
Sowerby, and James Edward Smith. You'll be especially interested to know that tipped in
with Shaw's Zoology is a note from Gregory M. Mathews to Richmond discussing
Mathews' very own copy of the Zoology. Mathews writes of seeing the Linn. Soc. copy and
then goes on to transcribe one of the wrappers from that copy about a part published in
1794.  It says:
	"Zoology / of / New Holland / by / George Shaw M.S. F.R.S/ etc. etc. / The figures by
	/ Sowerby F. L. S. / This volume contains / The [illegible] Parrot The Long-necked
	Tortioise / The [illegible] [Perops ?]  The serrated lobster / in binding the work,
	the order of the pages only is to be [attended ?] to in the / Description[s?], which
	are immediately to follow the corresponding plates / London / M.DCC.XCIV"
This description is clearly different from the one described in Gottingisches. Mathews
then goes on to describe his own copy (which lacked plates 7 & 8) which he outlined by part,
corresponding page numbers and plate numbers, plate names, and date.  In his note, he clearly
dates his Part 3 as 1795 [APP: emphasis added] even though he does not include the
corresponding page numbers for that part.

I have collated the parts of our incomplete copy and compared it against Gmelin's article.  The
plate names all check out, but there are two typos in the footnotes regarding part
  1. In footnote "b" at the bottom of page 143, referring to "Didelphis pygmaea" it reads: b) Nr. I. Pl. I. S. 5. f. According to our copy "Didelphis pygmaea" is actually plate 2 and should read: Nr.I. Pl.II. S.5 f.
  2. In footnoote "e" at the bottom of page 145, referring to "Psittacus eximus" it reads: e) Nr. I. Pl.II. S. I. ff. According to our copy, "Psittacus eximus" is actually plate 1 and should read: Nr.I. Pl.I. S.1 ff.
Interestingly, plate 1 "Psittacus eximus" appears to have had the plate number and genus/species name rubbed off. I don't know if it is true of all copys. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. The signature marks are all wonky. There two known signature F's and 2 signature G's, with F and G appearing once in parts 2 and 3. The second set of 21/21 describing plate 8 is lacking in our copy, but I consulted an online version from the State Library of New South Wales which includes both the text and plate. (Go to: http://image.sl.nsw.gov.au/cgi-bin/ebindshow.pl?doc=dixson/a319;thumbs=36). Shaw's Zoology of New Holland was orginally published in parts with James Edward Smith's A specimen of the botany of New Holland, and a combined work by Smith and Shaw on New Holland titled Zoology and Botany of New Holland and the isles adjacent. Our copy has all these titles bound together. The title page bound in with Shaw's work is the combined title: Zoology and botany of New Holland and the isles adjacent. On it Richmond has written in pencil "title differs from copy in Phila. Acad." It is most likely that this title page was printed after all the works were finished in 1795. It's no wonder this work is a mess. 2007.01.24

Zoologiia Zoologia czyli zwierzetopismo ogolne podlug naynowszego systemu ulozone. Jarocki, F. P 1821 Warsaw [Zoologiia, Vol. 3(Gady i plazy) (1822)] Mathews discusses this work in the Austral Avian Record 1918 III:142-146. He gives the title as: "Zoologiia czyli zwiérzetopismo ogólne podlug náynowszego systematu utozone przez Felixa Pawla Jarockiego, Nauk Wyzwolonych i Filizofii Doctora Professora Zoologii w Królewsko Warsawskim Uniwersytecie, Czlonka Towarzystwa Mineralogicznego w Jenie, etc. Tom Drugi. z dwiema rycinami Ptáki w Warszawie w Drukarni Latkiewicza przy Ulicy Senatorskiey Nio 467. 1821." Mathews comments: "This means that the book is the second volume of a series entitled "Zoologiia," the one dealing with Birds. Only six volumes were issued, the work being too big for completion though perhaps other events, such as war, interfered with the project.

For Strix punctatissima the plate (by Gould) was evidently published first (in 1838) and the text (by Gray) subsequently in 1839.
  • Steinheimer, Dickinson, & Walters also argue that the authorship for Strix punctatissima should be Gould & Gray.
