Notes

General notes:
Generally accepted authorship of the Botanist's Repository: Volumes I-V: John Kennedy. Volume VI: Adrian Hardy Haworth. Volumes VII-X: George Jackson. Further details of authorship are provided in James Britten's "Henry Andrews and his "Botanist's Repository" in the Journal of Botany, 54 (1916) pp. 236-246.
Engraved titles read: Vol. 1 [11, 111, 1V] of the Botanist's Repository Comprising, Colour'd Engravings of New and Rare Plants only With Botanical Descriptions &c. in Latin and English, after the Linnaean System, by H. Andrews Botanical Painter Engraver &c.
The Botanist's Repository was originally issued in ten volumes, comprising 137 parts. The work was initially issued in parts of three plates each, changing later to five plates each. Information concerning dates of publication of the individual parts may be found in Flora Malesiana I:4 p.clxvi. The generally accepted date of the final part is 1814-1815; the description accompanying plate 664 is dated 1814. The work was reissued in ten volumes in 1816. In his catalogue 280 (1909), Quaritch notes for a first edition of this work (catalogue no. 226, Volume 10 of which was still in original wrappers), that "The wrapper of the last part (137) bears the date 1816". This may have been part of the 1816 reissue of this work?
