Notes:

" The plates are engraved, and coloured after the original drawings, by Mr. John Clarke" --P. 4 (2nd group).

Each leaf of plates has a facing leaf with descriptive letterpress printed on the recto side only. These letterpress leaves are included in the pagination statement.

Several errors occur in the numbering of the plates: plate 5 is misnumbered as 3; plate 6 is misnumbered as 4; plate 23 is misnumbered as 5; and plate 54 is misnumbered as 3.

For a description of some of the different printings of this work identified on the basis of watermarks, see "Miscellaneous notes" by A. Tindell Hopwood in Proc. Malac. Soc. London, v. 26 (1944/45), p. 152-153. Hopwood writes of this work, "Were it not for the fact that Perry introduced a number of new names, the volume would have been forgotten long ago, except as a curiosity."
