Excerpt from Forty-Seventh Annual Report of the American Museum of Natural History, for the Year 1910: Annual Report of the President; Treasurer's Report; List of Accessions; Act of Incorporation; Contract With the Department of Parks; Constitution; By-Laws and List of Members The President submits herewith his report of the progress Of the Museum for the year 1910. A new feature of the preparation of this report is that its departmental sections* have been written under the President's direction by the Curators and Officers in charge. Our gratitude should first be expressed to the old friends and supporters of the American Museum, whose generous gifts of the past year are acknowledged in detail in the pages of this report. While our income from endowment has not materially increased, the total gifts towards exploration and exhibition exceed those of any previous year in the Museum's history. We have gained also new friends at home and abroad who have been impressed with the spirit and purpose of the Museum. Among the latter may be mentioned especially three from Great Britain, Sir Ernest Shackleton, Mr. F. C. Selous and Mr. Walter Winans. The contribution of the Belgian Government to the Congo Expedition may also be recalled. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
