Proceedings of the Zoological Society of London and Transcations of the Zoological Society of London

Keulemans was a major contributor to the illustrations of birds and mammals in the Proceedings of the Zoological Society of London.  This was a journal issued in octavo format which covered the whole range of zoology, describing new acquistions to the London Zoo and the British Museum.   The Secretary of the Society, Philip Lutley Sclater, oversaw its publication.  Keulemans contributed to the Proceedings on a consistent basis, from 1868--1889, and 1892--1893, 1895--1896, 1898, and 1901.  (Plates by him may also have possibly been featured in it after this point.)  More recently, an index to the illustrations from this journal has been issued from Garland Publishing (Root and Johnson).    This index does not include information for the issues published after 1900.  


(*In some instances, specific numbers of the Proceedings were issued the year following publication of the respective edition into which they were incorporated.  Such an example is Zapornia watersi--Bartlett's description did not appear until 1880.  Also of significance is the fact that volume numbers were not created for each successive edition, but after 1900, each year of the Proceedings was comprised of two volumes, designated as such.  For this exhibit, recognition is afforded to the date of the year as it appeared on the print itself, but plates where this discrepancy occurred are noted with an asterisk.)



Proceedings--120 pls.  

Transactions--6 pls.





**To a lesser degree, he also provided lithographic illustrations to the Transactions of the Zoological Society of London.  The Transactions was issued in folio, and Keulemans appeared in volumes for the years 1877 and 1901.   For the later year, only one of the eighteen plates was colored by hand; the remainder were chromolithographs and are not included here.  Similar to the Proceedings, an index of the illustrations was published separately by Garland Publishing (Root and Johnson).  These plates from 1877 are unavailable and are considered desiderata:


LXXXV  Camarhynchus variegatus [(female and male)]

LXXXVI Camarhynchus habeli [(female and male)]

LXXVII  Larus fuliginosus, (adult and juvenile)

LXXXVIII  Oestrelata (Pterodroma) phaeopygia,

               Procellaria (Oceanodroma) tethys



Included are more than 135 images, three of which are duplicated and one of which is a black/white copy from a colored image.  This exhibit is featured on three webpages, with a link provided below to access the second page.
