"The figures and descriptions contained in the work entitled 'The birds of America', and 'Ornithological biography ... ' having been issued in the miscellaneous manner which was thought bees adapted to the occasion ... seemed to require a systematic index, in which the nomenclature should be corrected, and the species arranged agreeably to my present views. This Synopsis, then, will afford a metholdical catalogue of all the species ... described in the works above named."--Pref., p. [v].
