  • With added engraved title page: "Francisci Willoughby [sic] Icthyographia [sic] ad amplissimum virum D[omi]num Samuelem Pepys, praesidem Soc. Reg. Londinensis, concilium, et socios ejusdem. Sumptibus Societatis Regalis Londinensis. 1685." Signed at foot: "Paul van Somer jnuent et fecit Londini"
  • With John Ray's preface and dedication to Samuel Pepys
  • A full re-issue was published by the Royal Society in 1743, with cancel title page. See Keynes' bibliography of John Ray (no. 47) and the English short title catalogue no. N68107
  • This edition, which has the original 1685 title page and not the 1743 cancel, but has the 1740 index may represent an imperfect copy of the Royal Society's 1743 reissue (English short title catalogue no. N68107), or a copy of the 1685 made up by an individual owner as the 1740 index became available. See English short title catalogue no. N51867
  • In some copies the added engraved title page is often placed as a title page to the plates when they are bound following the text or in a separate volume
  • "Appendix ad Historiam naturalem piscium. Pisces Indiae orientalis a Joanne Nieuhofs descripti"; "Annotationes in tabulae" and "Errata typographica" on recto of unpaged leaf following; "Index". Separate paging and register (30, [14] pages; A-L2). Many fish names in Dutch. As issued in 1686?
  • "Index piscium in Ichthyographia Willughbeiana vel descriptorum vel depictorum ... Additis synonymis ... curâ̂̂̂ Cromwelli Mortimeri, Reg. Soc. Secret.": separate paging ([12] pages) and register (a-c2, signatures in square brackets). "Omissa", "Corrigenda in indice Anglicano", "Addenda & corrigenda in indice Latino", "Errata": pages [9]-[12]. With colophon: "Londini: Prostant venales apud Carolum Davis in vico Paternoster-Row dicto, & Thomam Woodward in vico Fleetstreet inter duas Templi portas; Regalis Societatis typographos. M. DCC. XL [1740]."
  • Engraved title vignette (Sheldonian Theatre), engraved headpieces, decorated initials
  • Plates numbered by sections: A2 B9 C5 D5 E2 F8 G10 H7 I27 L7 M5 N13 O5 P8 Q10 R4 S22 T1 V12 X15; Appendix 10
  • Each plate has an engraved credit line dedicated to the patron who paid for production, including Samuel Pepys, Christopher Wren, Robert Boyle, John Evelyn, Elias Ashmole, and many others
  • The plates exist in several states: Printed on rectos and versos both (state 1) or on rectos only (state 2). State 1 plates may include eight blank leaves. The four plates numbered "Appendices tab. 5-8" may have fish identifications as provided with pasted-on letterpress-printed slips (state a) or as names engraved in the plates with the images (state b). State b presumably constitutes a separate printing of the plates
  • "Figurae novae quae non paucae sunt [dagger] notantur" --Added engraved title page
  • Signatures: pi1 [a]-b2 A-2V4; 2A-2L2 (a)-(c)2 (A3 missigned A2; R3 missigned as Q3; (a)-(c) in square brackets)
