    Excerpt from Catalogue of the Snakes in the British Museum (Natural History), Vol. 1: Containing the Families Typhlopidæ, Glauconidæ, Boidæ, Ilysiidæ, Uropeltidæ, Xenopeltidæ, and Colubridæ Aglyphæ, Part

    The Collection of Snakes in the British Museum was catalogued partly in the year 1849, partly in 1858, in two 12mo volumes of respectively 125 and 281 pages. It contained at that time about 500 species represented by 3500 specimens, and ranked as one of the two richest collections of Ophidians. However, the appearance of those two little Catalogues led to the very fertile cooperation of many Naturalists and Collectors in the Tropics; and the influx of additional species was so continuous as to necessitate the issue of supplementary reports, which were published in the 'Annals and Magazine of Natural History' and in the 'Proceedings of the Zoological Society,' and continued with tolerable regularity to the year 1872. By that time the total number of species in the Museum amounted to 920, and that of the typical specimens to 360. Although no opportunity of adding to the Collection has been lost since that year, the high percentage of the new species acquired in former years could no longer be maintained.

    Until the completion of the work, which will consist of three volumes, it is not possible to give more than an approximate estimate of the extent of the Collection at the present date. To judge from this first volume, the entire Collection will probably be found to contain not less than 1200 species represented by about 10,000 specimens.

    The present edition of the Catalogue has much stronger claims to being regarded as a Monograph of the suborder Ophidia than its predecessor, in which little or no reference was made to species not represented in the Museum.
