Half-title: United States exploring expedition. By authority of Congress.
By the same act, the edition was limited to 100 copies. Mr. Wilkes, however, secured copyright on his Narrative of the expedition, under which privilege he published several editions of that part of the reports. Later, also, the authors themselves, or publishers who might be willing to undertake it, were allowed to issue an additional 150 copies of the various reports, and under this arrangement, from 100 to 150 copies of most of the volumes were published in addition to the 100 copies provided for by the government. The oficial edition however was 100 copies only.
Volumes of unfinished plates--some of them in proof before lettering--are found, without t.p. or other printed matter. The Library of Congress has two such volumes: one of 71 pl. (4 col.) from the atlases to Botany, and one of 32 col. pl., 28 of which belong to the unpublished v. 21-22, Ichthyology, and 4 to v. 12, Mollusca and shells.
Vol. 8 was originally published as Mammalia and ornithology, by Titian R. Peale ... Philadelphia, Printed by C. Sherman, 1848. This volume was later suppressed, and replaced by the one by John Cassin.
