Description

Excerpt from List of the Specimens of Birds in the Collection of the British Museum, Vol. 1: Accipitres The principal object of the present Catalogue has been to give a complete list of the specimens of Birds contained in the collection of the British Museum, indicating at the same time the peculiarities of each, as regards age, sex, habitation, and the source from whence it has been derived. With this view the different individuals of each species contained in the collection are indicated by the letters a, b, c, &c., following the name of the species, and its synonyma. These particulars are followed by the habitat, which is given as particularly as the materials possessed by the Museum permit; but, as many specimens have been pro cured from dealers, it is often impossible to give the place from whence they are derived, except in the most general terms.
