S. National Museum, Vol. 60The scientific publications of the National Museum consist of two, series - the Bulletin and the Proceedings.The Bulletin publication of which was begun in 1875, is a series of more or less extensive works intended to illustrate the collections of the United States National Museum and, with the exception noted below, is issued separately. These bulletins are monographic in scope and are devoted principally to the discussion of large zoological and botanical groups, faunas and floras, bibliographies of eminent naturalists, reports of expeditions, etc. They are usually of octavo size, although a quarto form, known as the Special Bulletin, has been adopted in a few instances in which a larger page was deemed indispensable.This work forms No. 60 of the Bulletin series.Since 1902 the volumes of the series known as Contributions from the National Herbarium, and containing papers relating to the botanical collections of the Museum, have been published as bulletins.The Proceedings, the first volume of which was issued in 1878, are intended as a medium of publication of brief original papers based on the collections of the National Museum, and setting forth newly acquired facts in biology, anthropology, and geology derived therefrom, or containing descriptions of new forms and revisions of limited groups. A volume is issued annually, or oftener, for distribution to libraries and scientific establishments, and in view of the importance of the more prompt dissemination of new facts a limited edition of each paper is printed in pamphlet form in advance.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
