AbstractEditorial note: As announced in the previous issue we have here deleted all references to the Algae, Fungi, and Lichens. Except for a few protests, there appears to be little interest in these subjects among Malesian botanists. ‘I am told that Chinese printers have a tradition which obliges them to introduce into their works a sprinkling of intentional errors; the reason for this curious action is to provide the careful reader with that sense of superiority which follows discovery of another man’s typographical lapse. We all know that strange pleasure; and while I would not rob you of such harmless delight it is nevertheless my sincere hope that no one will leave this Bibliography ... with a violent attack of superiority complex.’ (J. Blanck, Bibl. Am. Lit., 1955).
