|Title||On the early editions of Lacepède's "Tableaux des Mammifères et des Oiseaux", with remarks on two hitherto overlooked species: Lori bengalensis Lacepède, 1800, and Ornithorynchus novae Hollandiae Lacepède, 1800|
|Abstract||Sherborn (1899) very ably discussed the four editions of Lacepède's "Tableaux des Mammifères et des Oiseaux" that were known to him, and made the complicated history of these publications clear. To these four editions we now can add two that evidently were not known to Sherborn, one of which must be exceedingly rare. In the following lines the six editions are discussed in chronological order; editions I, III, IV, and V have been dealt with by Sherborn, II and VI are those that we recently became acquainted with.|
Edition I (published between January 1 and September 22, 1799).

The second is the "Tableau des divisions, sous-divisions, ordres et genres des mammifères", pp. 1-18; the third is "Tableau des sous-classes, divisions, sous-divisions, ordres et genres des oiseaux", pp. 1-20. This edition has been fully dealt with by Sherborn (1899).
Edition II (published between September 23 and December 31, 1800).
