the same, Vol. VI: Passeriformes, part IV, Cichlomorphæ, 18 COLOURED plates, 208

1881 CATALOGUE of the BIRDS Vol. VII: PASSERIFORMES, part V, by R. Bowdler SHARPE, 15 COLOURED plates, 26s

1883 Contents :-CICHLOMORPHÆ, part IV, containing the concluding portion of the Family TIMELIIDA (Babbling Thrushes).

1883 Contents :--CICHLOMORPHÆ, part V, containing the Families PARIDÆ and LANIIDE (Titmice and Shrikes), and CERTHIOMORPHÆ (Creepers and Nuthatches).

Vol. IX: Passeriformes, part VII, Cinnyrimorphæ, containing the Families Nectariniida and Meliphagidæ (Sun-Birds and Honey-Eaters), by Hans GADOW, 7 COLOURED plates, 148

1884 The importance of Mr. Sharpe's previous contributions to Science, such as the Monograph of the Alcedinida,' and the · Birds of Enrope,' fully justify the interest which is felt in the above work. Ornithological Science will largely gain by it. The 'Catalogue of Birds' will be a companion work to Dr. Günther's celebrated 'Catalogue of Fishes,' which was also published by the authorities of the British Museum. As in that work, every species will be described in full, and since not only the Birds in the Museum itself will be included, but every known species of every genus, each volume will be a series of monographic revisions of the group or family of which it treats. In addition to this, diagnostic tables and keys will be supplied for each genus, and the genera and families willalso be fully characterized, woodcuts being added whenever the characters require elucidation.

1878 “ The second part of this work is devoted to illustrations of Japanese Moths, in the British Museum. The fauna of Japan, on account of its mixture of European, Indian, and North-American forms, has always claimed the special attention of zoologists interested in the facts of geographical distribution. As regards Moths, European forms are predominant, many species being most closely allied to those of Europe, and singularly, some forming links between species hitherto found in Europe only.”—Albert Günther.
