but so have the most of our ornithological journals often unknowingly given publication to It must be borne in mind that I have tried to be consistent in articles citing all appropriate titles from every serial recognized at all, whether of evident value or not In but two or three cases and, then so stated in the annotation, In other words, every title, except the duced titles second-hand has been copied by me personally regard to preserving precise wording, In making amplify annotations Titles been transcribed with constant spelling and punctuation under each title I have kept the title where it is insufficient two objects in in itself to convey an idea of the the article, particularly as regards locality; have as to the authenticity of the article my doubt as to the identity have have I introtwo or three, view: to nature of and to give briefly any knowledge I may Question marks in the annotations show of the species named In the case of a name not now in par- in use, and where I know what species is meant, the current name is given In a few cases I have given a short analysis of the article enthesis In gathering the library the 1785 titles listed in this bibliography of Stanford University, of Sciences, to the private libraries Childs and myself, library and, during of the Academy to the former library of Mr of Natural Dr Chas W Richmond Pasadefza, CaZz;fomia, March 22, 1908 I,ee Chambers, a visit to Philadelphia Sciences there time to time in regard to certain points, K Fisher, W from Mr and Mr I have had free access to of the California in Mr January, Academy John I,ewis 1908, to the I have also obtained help W Witmer I,ee Chambers, Dr from Walter Stone JOSEPH GRINNEIL BIBUOGRAPHY OF CALIFORNIA ORNITHOI,OGY NOTE.-In this Bibliography titles are groupt according to the year of publication, from 1797 to 1907 The titles for each year are arranged alphabetically by authors Under each author, if he publisht more than one article during that year, titles are arranged chronologically by Names of periodicals are usually abbreviated;
