  • SCNHRB has pt. 1-3, and pt. 5, only.
  • SCNHRB copy of pt. 1 (39088013953161) has stamp: Smithsonian Institution National Museum, Jun. 26, 1943; accession no.: 322990. With pencil note in gutter of p. [i] (2nd group): Dawson 24 Je. '43. With bookplate: Smithsonian Institution Libraries. Preservation supported by the Smithsonian Women's Committee.
  • SCNHRB copy of pt. 1 and pt. 5 have the original green paperboard binding with gilt-lettered embossed cloth spine. Both pt. 1 and pt. 5 have similar ms. pencil notes on their title pages: pt. 1, "cat. 50, no. 252"; pt. 5, "cat. 50, no. 253." Part 1 has a later archival paperboard portfolio.
  • SCNHRB copy of pt. 2 (39088013952932) has two different versions of the half-title bound in (apparently both the cancellans and the cancellandum); cf Freeman, no. 8. The plates in pt. 2 are interspersed with the text, rather than bound in at the end as in the Cullman Library's copies of pt. 1, 3, and 5.
  • SCNHRB copy of pt. 2 has the ms. ink autograph of a former owner on the original front cover: A.B. Balfour. With stamp: Smithsonian Institution National Museum, Jun. 26, 1943, accession no.: 322991.
  • SCNHRB copy of pt. 2 has a red buckram library binding with gilt-lettered spine and gray endpapers; the front portion of the original printed brown stiff-paper cover is bound in. A typed note on a slip of paper, referring to an article by C.D. Sherborn on the publication dates of the parts of the mammalia volume, is mounted on the verso of the original front cover.
  • SCNHRB copy of pt. 3 (39088013953153) has bookplate: Smithsonian Institution Libraries. Purchased from the Cullman Endowment. With blind-embossed [bookseller or binder] stamp on back free endpaper: "Specialty in rare works of art, W.S.P." There is a blank piece of paper mounted on the front paste-down endpaper, apparently covering over the bookplate of an unidentified former owner.
  • SCNHRB copy of pt. 3 has a later green half-cloth binding with marbled paper boards and marbled edges. A few of the plate numbers have been slightly cropped.
  • SCNHRB copy of pt. 5 (39088009486085) has uncolored plates.
