|Document Type:||Journal / Magazine / Newspaper|
|Notes:||"The plan of this work is twofold.-- An attempt is here made for the first time to combine the lighter character of a popular periodical, with the more solid utility of an eminent scientific work. One half-sheet of each number will contain, 'The Edinbugh journal of natural history, and of the physical sciences;' and the other will be devoted to a new translation of 'The animal kingdom, by Baron Cuvier,' with extensive notes and additions."--No. 1, page 1.
Separate title pages and indexes were issued for each volume of the journal and The animal kingdom; "Directions to the binder" at the end of each index direct that the whole text of the journal volume should precede that of The animal kingdom, with the plates at the end.
The journal is illustrated with woodcuts in the text; The animal kingdom is illustrated with hand-colored engraved plates by various engravers after various artists, with complex numbering that does not correspond with the order in which they are directed to be bound.
