Notes:

Vol. 5 printed by Arding and Merrett.

Issued in parts, beginning in 1802 (approximate dates of publication based on the dates that are engraved on most of the plates). According to the Natural History Museum (U.K.) catalog record for this

Originally sold by subscription. Once all parts were produced, the publication was also sold in completed sets.

The publisher provided title pages for binding the set into 5 volumes, with the individual title pages dated as follows: v. 1: 1804; v. 2: 1806; v. 3: 1809; v. 4: 1811; v. 5: 1817.

According to Conklin, the phrase "(with assistance)" on t.p. is assumed to refer to help from Sowerby's sons, James De Carle and George Brettingham Sowerby.

The plates are numbered continously throughout the five volumes.

The plates are copper-plate engravings in black or colored ink, finished with hand-watercoloring.

Errors in numeration: Plate 421 is misnumbered 221 in some copies (the plate number is correct in the Cullman Library copy); Plate 413 and 415 have their numbers interchanged.

"As shown by a copy of the first volume in the original wrappers, and by the dates on the plates throughout, the first part of this work was issued 1 Nov., 1802 and subsequent parts up to 1 Oct., 1805

Each volume has its own index. In addition, v. 5 contains a "Systematic index to British mineralogy" (v. 5, p. [2]-[9], 4th group) and an "Index to British mineralogy" (v. 5, p. [10]-[24], 4th group).

Each volume contains a list of errata at the end of the text.
