The first Catalogue of the Library of the Zoological Society of London, which was published in 1854, contained about 460 titles of works. To this a Supplement, issued in 1864, added 1090 others, making a total of 1550 titles. The second edition of the Library Catalogue, published in 1872, contained about 2100 titles of works; the third, issued in 1880, 3200, to which a Supplement, issued in 1883, added 1000 more, making a total of 4200 titles.
The present (fourth) edition, which has been prepared by Mr. F. H. Waterhouse, the Society's Librarian, contains titles of about 6560 different works in the Society's Library, exclusive of the Periodicals. The Library at the present time contains about 15,000 volumes.
A few books, which have either been accidentally omitted or added to the Library too late to be inserted in their proper places, will be found catalogued in the Appendix at the end of the volume.
