PREFACE.



THE object of this Hand-List is to give a complete List
of all the Genera with their subdivisions ; and also a com-
prehensive List of the species of Birds under the respective
divisions to which they are supposed to belong.

The specific name in Antique (or thick) type exemplifies
those species that are contained in the British Museum ; whilst
the Roman (or thin) type exhibits those species that are at pre-
sent desiderata to the Collection.

Various errata have been corrected in the Index of Specific
Names ; wherein will also be found numerous additional syno-
nyms, which are distinguished by = before the number ; while
species that have been subdivided,, and some that are new,
which are not previously recorded in the text of the book, are
shown by the letter a , b , &c., being affixed after the number of
the nearest allied species of the genus to which it belongs, thus
completing, as far as possible, the List of Species down to a very
recent date.
