PREFACE.



THE number of specimens of eggs enumerated by Mr. Gates in this
second volume of his ' Catalogue ' is just 15,000. The Crowley
Bequest proves from its registration, which has not yet been
completed, to have added very largely to the series of eggs in
the National Collection, and it has supplied a large number of
desiderata. It is especially rich in eggs of Australian birds, of
-which the Museum had not a good -series, and a glance at the
following pages will show how important have been the accessions
from Mr. Crowley's bequest.

As before, the editing of this volume has been undertaken by
Dr. Bowdler Sharpe, the Assistant Keeper in charge of the Sub-
Department of Vertebrata.

E. BAY LANKESTER,

Director.
