Fishes of Tasmania 1890 - 1930, possibly 1920 - 1930
An incomplete descriptive list by an unidentitied author. It is undated but was compiled later than R.M. Johnston's Fishes of Tasmania, published in Papers and Proceedings of the Royal Society of Tasmania in 1862 as Johnston's List is cited in this List: Johnston's List acknowledges help from M. Allport ms 'List of Fishes' which has no description and which is also in the Royal Society's collection. (See RS. 128)
loose leave8, 6 x 8 1/2", various paginations, in two boxes.
Partly' ms. in one hand, with annotations in another; partly typescript. RS.150/1-2
Drawings of Tasmanian fish
42 ink drawings or diagrams of fish, on papers 170 mm x 205 mm. Some have scientific names typed (small neat type, similar to the typed pages of the list above), some common names or corrected names in pencil.
The drawings were stored between pieces of strawboard, marked as "diagrams of Tas. fishes". The Roy. Soc. Library card stuck on, however, states:
"Australian fishes, 40 hand drawn diagrams, Anonymous" The papers have a brownish colour, possibly due to acidity.
(Both the list and the drawings were formerly in the R.S. Library: ref.No 28,238, class No. 597.09 Aus. (drawings) and 597.09 Fis (list) or 597.09 Ano.)
*There is also an ms. note "From McLeay's catalogue.
