Abstract:
Rafinesque's descriptive specimen list of fish, shells, turtles, mammals, insects, plants, and fungi collected during a field trip in 1818. This item includes numerous detailed drawings of specimen collected, especially fish. Rafinesque often uses the abbreviation "NG," probably indicating what he thinks is a "new genus." Most of the text is in French, but identifications use the English common name and a taxonomic name, and some specimen entries are in English. Some illustrations of specimen include measurements. Also included are many hand drawn maps with location names and some topographical information. Although the original archival description suggests Rafinesque began the trip in Philadelphia, earlier entries in this notebook find him in New York, and perhaps farther north. Locations Rafinesque visited various locations in Pennsylvania, Kentucky, New York, and the District of Columbia. Some locations in Pennsylvania include but are not limited to Gettysburg, Bedford, Chambersburg, and Todd. This book is also referred to as "Notes N. 17."

Abstract:
These field notes were created as part of the ‘Smithsonian African Expedition, Under the Direction of Col. Theodore Roosevelt (1909-10).' This volume contains a list of initial identifications for specimens numbered 1 – 1858. Pasted throughout are typed notes documenting landmarks and geographic features (e.g., West Forest Kenia Station, Katheroni River) and altitudes. The geographic coverage spans what was then known as British East Africa, including frequent references to the West Kenya Forest Station and the "giant heath" zone. Also found in this volume is a typewritten page entitled ‘Documents on the plaque of Dr. E. A. Mearns on Plummer’s Island’ which cites documents from the Washington Biologists’ Field Club Archives (compiled by Dan H. Nicolson, 2000).

Abstract:
In this item, Peters records collecting events taking place between 1949 and 1950. Some pages seem out of order in this unbound notebook. At the beginning of the item is a Gazetteer of location names with descriptions. Most of these locations are within the Mexican state of Michoacan. Peters writes almost daily entries which often include detailed descriptions of the plants, soil, and surrounding environment, travel time, elevations, and air and water temperatures when applicable. Also included in these accounts are lists of reptile and amphibian specimens collected. Other materials include lists of photos taken, supply lists and laundry lists. Many of the specimen entries towards the latter part of the field notes are prefaced with sketches of specimen with citations from published works. There are many of what seems to be detailed examinations of specimen, some include illustrations. Two possible citations are to the work of Edward Harrison Taylor and Hobart M. Smith. Includes some typewritten notes like "Key to Sceloporus to be found in Jalisco and Michoacan".
