Nice but anonymous illustration of a #palm
If you click on the BHL (Biodiversity Heritage Library) link you can zoom all the way in to see the detail.
Oolitic plant #fossils
Fabulous engraving of west laurel hill cemetery as a botanical garden by CL Bateman
"Ever your sincere friend

An esteemed #botanist #photograph
Lovely image of Holland House and reference to an illustrated book "Holland House" by Princess Marie Liechtenstein #female
😄 I can think of better games . . .
The illustrator is Edward Walter Hunnybun - not come across him before. I think I would remember that name. 😃
Pg 48 - images of flower heads. A"normal" & picotee carnation which has different coloured petal edges. I'm having trouble seeing it though!
This is so Victorian! An aquarium and plant stand.
Lovely illustration of Eridge #castle, Abergavenny.
Another lovely plant sketch of Campsidium Filicifolium - from the "Feejee islands."
#oldweather and a glorious decorated letter #alphabet
It's WGS DEL (Worthington G Smith). This list of contributors is sometimes useful: http://tinyurl.com/h9ksxwt
Sometimes the roles are not clear so you did the right thing!
After a bit of detective work via pg viii & the original foldout this is Plate 1 showing Scottish carboniferous brachiopoda to face pg 23.
I had deja vu there for a minute! Thought I recognised this chap. https://talk.sciencegossip.org/#/boards/BSC0000008/discussions/DSC00006eo
This seems to be an issue with some problems - there's an errata: http://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/46202497#page/13/mode/1up
#gastropods #molloscs #female Miss J Donald
Hmm - I can't make it out either.
I can't find the article either - that's a very muddled journal to navigate.
#geology Glacial erosion. Probably interesting only to me but this is my neighbourhood!
#oldweather #alphabet #initial
#alphabet #initial #oldweather
Just got this - love it!
#projectcrossover with the new butterfly Pieris Project.
Love this! Such a simple but effective illustration.
Nice #projectcrossover with Shakespeare's World - and this year we are celebrating 400 years since his death.
Well, it does say Mme Bernard. Haven't found any information about her yet though.
i love this - an #extinct species of giraffid.
We really need a "like" button!
This is lovely. George Shaw I think - I've added him to the collection of contributors.
Wow! This is a #stereo photo-micrograph for viewing with a stereoscope. Details are on p291 and the caption for this image is on p294.
I've added Elijah Whimper to the contributors list as his name is sometimes tricky to read and it might help people decipher his name.
A fearsome five-tube microscope!!
Hurrah! He's back! 😃
I'll see if I can find more about this one!
Love the images from the new journal - The Journal of horticulture, cottage gardener and country gentlemen. E #Whmper illustrator.
Ingestrie Hall - lovely illustration.
#dailyzoo Terrific find!
I see it and I am always on the look out for signatures! In this case I don't think it is a signature.
Bottom left on the grass under the tree. Probably fanciful - and I can't find an illustrator to fit the initials.
I think I see the initials MRR under the tree. I would want to be credited if I had drawn that tree!
It's probably best to use the zoom on the BHL page accessible via the "original page" icon or "read this article" link.
#trilobites #fossils #arthropods
This is the author of the article C D Soar - another example of someone who provided their own illustrations.
Never fear - there will be an unfolded version in the journal which you might get to classify. Meanwhile this is "no image" & tag as #folded
Listed as stereum hydrophorum on page 273. These journal articles are annoyingly split into 3 or 4 sections. That took some finding!
😃 Thank you! Some of these are not easy to track down! Nice to see this one again. And it still looks like a horse.
Fantastic illustration! I am wondering if this has been used before.
Love this description! The hazards of gate stoppers to gentlemen of short stature,.
This is lovely!
Good catch! I expect this was an unusual event.
Worth a #plate17 tag in case someone finds the illustration. Found it via BHL! http://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/816104#page/257/mode/1up
There is an explanation of the plate on the following page mentioning synedra. I had to google this to learn they are diatoms.
Maybe it's good practise to scan them as they appear in the journals (ie folded to fit) as well as scanning the page fully opened out.
#projectcrossover with Old Weather Whaling.
This was the second time I received the image to classify. I haven't had a repeat image for a long time.
#alphabet - and a #repeat
Fierce hamsters! And another #female author given a mention: Christina Rennie.
Relaxed Health and Safety! 😮
The horse is a toy carved from the palm and is apparently a llama or alpaca (but I agree it looks more like a horse!)
Seeds of the phytelephas (Vegetable Ivory #Palm).Page 207 has some information. The key is on page 212.

Josiah Wood Whymper the engraver. Now added to the list. Lovely illustration.
And it's a #reusedimage http://talk.sciencegossip.org/#/subjects/ASC0000d7f The signature is clearer on the other one too.
This is when the BHL zoom is useful. Click the "original page" icon (a page with a corner folded down) top right on the classification page.
Wow! Excellent example of banding.
Yes - I think it's a #ruffle too. Certainly his style. I also spotted the 3 letters but can't make them out either.
Just had this to classify again! #repeat
A useful turntable addition for a microscope. #microscopy
Missed the obvious! The article is by By the Rev. W. C. Lukis, M.A., F.S.A. Maybe he used the little cross to signify he was a reverend?
Likely Jens Jacob Asmussen Worsaae a Danish archaeologist http://tinyurl.com/opqg8u8 but why WCL? 😕
Yes, page 146 refers to WCL and a Mr Worsaae. I'm still trying to pin this one down!
I love these illustrations! The text says they are sketches from original Charles Landseer drawings but I can't find out who SL is.
Lovely illustration of a Saxon chuch.
Describing the proposed execution methods of traitors - gruesome!
Roman dice #alphabet
Intriguing ancient rock markings. #archaeology
#photograph of buildings added to the Roman Villa at Box.
A fetter lock - for fastening together the chains of prisoners.
It seems to be the same writing style so I've added this as another example of his varied signatures.
Interesting. #VincentBrooks (lithographer) is a common contributor.
This is an article about ancient burial practices. so keywords and tags might be #graves #archaeology #skeleton #guernsey
Sometimes we have to look at the previous or next page on the BHL site for clues. The "original page" icon takes you there.
#rotifer #planktonportal #marinebiology
Another lovely #TWWood illustration and a #ruffle engraving.
Not seen one of these before. Notice to binder.
#photograph 18th century microscope.
Found the key on page 147. They are #diatoms so #algae #planktonportal #marinebiology - and lovely illustrations!
Nepaul barley. Page 34.
If you want to tag I'd suggest maybe #fossil #reptile #pelvis #bones
floscularia trifidlobata is a #rotifer apparently - so #planktonportal #marinebiology will do nicely. 😃
Someone has helpfully added the species. Sadly I couldn't read it so had to trawl through the journal anyway! Pg 237 Bowringia Insignis.
The bottom part of the species name is cut off. It should read Lomaria milnei #historicaltaxonomy
Yes! Always classify the unfolded complete illustration - whether it is a map, photograph, table or drawing.
You need to go to the BHL link and take it up to 100% zoom for this one! It's a division of Wiltshire to show botanical geography.
It looks like a roaring lion! Or maybe I just need a break . . .
Looks like this is the complete page - just the very edge part missed in scanning.
This is a fantastic record! I would have put Bishopstoke Vicarage /garden plan / and a few plant names as key words. Lovely find.
All pages are presented to us just as they appear in the journal. Unfortunately we don't have a rotate tool to view them.
Done! Lovely illustration. Vegetable Ivory Palm I think - page 204. Not easy to find. 😦
Very cool! Still as popular now as it seems to have been then. #dailyzoo
Yes - they certainly gave this the hard sell! No prices in the ad though.
If you click the "original page" icon (folded page top right of the classification page) this takes you to the BHL site & the whole journal.
Page 135. Monstera deliciosa roots and stems. Not easy to find. . .
Some of the other veg sound impressive too!
Page 216 in a chapter on plant histology. So frustrating that this info is hidden and really difficult to find. 😕
Click the "original page" icon (folded page top right of the classification page) and this takes you to the BHL site where you can zoom in!
Page 75 - a device for "faciltating the use of "Powell's small bulls-eye" illuminator". Shame these descriptions are hidden in the journal.
If you click the "original page" icon (folded page top right of the classification page) this takes you to the BHL site where you can zoom!
Hold on - nematodes! I know it's in between data right now but it's still a #projectcrossover #wormwatchlab #dailyzoo 😃
Seems to be a study of 2 people infected with filaria (a nematode). Page 243 is where you'll find the answers!
Diffraction in microscopy, This is page 285. I finally found the article it refers to on page 79. This is a tricky journal to work with!
If you find a difference between the Victorian and modern taxonomy you can use the tag #historicaltaxonomy. There will be many! 😃
Love these botanical illustrations!
The icon top right of the classification page (a page with a corner turned down) takes you to the original BHL doc - with a useful zoom tool
It's certainly different. In this case I'd mark the table, include some species keywords and something like "fossil distribution".
It's also just half of a 2 page illustrative plate but the full double page doesn't appear to have been scanned.
After some digging in the previous pages these are fossil teeth of ptychodus - an extinct shark named after its crushing & grinding teeth 😮
😃 Just stand on your head! Another lovely WJH (William Jackson Hooker) illustration.
Yes! That's definitely a drawing to mark. Some are just sketches, some are colour plates - they all count if illustrating a journal article.
If you go to the BHL original page (page icon top right on classification page) you can really zoom in. It's Allan & Ferguson lithog.
Yes it is! Love these - great marbling. 😃 #cover
This is Fitch (del) and Madeley, 3 Wellington St (lith). Tricky - but we were discussing these very contributors just the other day!
You are correct @Rad0n - on both accounts!
And another WJH / Swan combo.
This is indeed blank. The BHL link shows us the following page. If some pages use Roman numerals it can throw the BHL link out of sync.
I've added WJH (William Jackson Hooker) to the contributor list. Lovely illustration.
Best yet! 😃
It is! And my neck of the UK woods too. 😃
Certainly is! This journal kept them very busy!
Yes - going by the FAQ these would appear to be tables as they have titles and column headers and are set out as tables.
Might this be GE Madeley (imp et lith) 3 Wellington St? They appear on the next few pages too. Another example is http://tinyurl.com/noksr69
#grammarpolice at work! #marginalia
Bemrose & Sons Ltd, Derby and London - a new contributor to me. I've added them to the list.
Some births, deaths and marriages too. #ancestry
#moss New contributor - Reeve, Benham & Reeve (printers)
Castanea chrysophylla - an evergreen plant. From the recent addition " The London Journal of Botany." #colour
Someone might know! Love the reference to it being deemed a "public service" to offer advice on how to protect cauliflowers! 😉
I used the BHL viewer - very useful for those hard to read ones! F Dangerfield Lith 22 Bedford St Covent Garden. Seem to specialise in maps
Even science should be cute sometimes!
😄 19th or 21st century coffee?
These are sooo good! #chimaera
How disappointing! #alphabet
I think it might well be A Mesnel. Google tells me he was an illustrator of fish. I've added both to the list but another eg would be good.
The engraver is likely Henri Théophile Hildibrand http://tinyurl.com/nphex6s DSI says he collaborated with Mesnel -could be the other name?
#wiki This image is also used in the Wikipedia article about the Lamia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamia
Nice work @JANEJ. Maybe we need a #wiki #webuse or just the #reusedimage tag for these?
St Mary's Church, Bishops Canning, Wiltshire. Love the detail in this illustration!
Avebury stone circle #archaeology
The article is by the Rev T N Hutchinson and he refers to using drawings by his son Mr C Bernard Hutchinson (on page 219). A family effort!
I think Mr Harris liked flies. He wrote another article the following year with a different illustration! http://tinyurl.com/neyf5da
Potterne church. Lovely illustration and another Edward Kite anastatic press offering.
😄 Brilliant! Definitely #dailyzoo material. And we don't want any of those "vilely injurious imitations"!
Seems OK in BHL view - maybe it's a screen resolution thing - I've noticed that happen. Contributors are Chs Achilles lith and Malby & Sons.
I found it in the book referred to: "Cassell's Book of Birds" ! http://tinyurl.com/ptk9o6w The colour plates in this book are wonderful.
Fascinating to see the slight differences - including the omission of the artist's' initials - in the engraving. Thanks @geoffrey.belknap!
Part of a proposed form for compiling an ethnographical survey of the UK. #anthropology
I am! 😉
Drawn especially for 1870 SG? "We can only present our readers with a faithful drawing a portrait of one of our captives drawn by an expert"
Indeed. I've added this as an example to the contributors thread.
This is the route I took...
http://tinyurl.com/ovrde6u (under patronage)
The illustrator is likely Charles Barron (clue from the other illustration), Curator, Royal Naval Museum at Haslar, Gosport, 1850-1884.
Excellent! One of my favourite images too. 😃
I think I've tried all possible combinations with no luck. It's a lovely detailed illustration. It would be nice to find who drew it.
I think I sorted it - anything tagged seems to be added automatically now. Between us we have things covered! 😃
I think you're right! Just testing out my #badsig tag group - which is not working. 😦
😮 And it's a #ruffle
Snap! http://talk.sciencegossip.org/#/subjects/ASC0000b0k #reusedimage
I started a #crypticinscription tag group a while ago which might do. Something shorter would be better! #badsig maybe?
That's a tough one! Maybe we should have a tag for the ones we can't read? Just in case it helps track down an illustrator.
I think this is him - I'll add him to the list.
Lovely woodcut by J Walmsley
Lovely sea anemone engraving by #ruffle
Yes! I just found him too on DSI #Keulemans Thanks @yshish!
#ruffle - and I am working on the illustrator!
That's the one! Found him in the DSI. I'll add him to the list. Thanks @Whitby_Jet.
Could be, really not sure about this one. Great illustration though - you're right!
Sand Martins by G West?
No image - just a rather charming short bio of Mr Lloyd's cat. =^.^= #dailyzoo
After a bit of research I think this is likely John Jackson, wood engraver. These are his images taken from an earlier work by GJ Mivart.
Always a good option! 😃
I think I had some #seals a while back and classified them as images. Some clarification might be needed here!
I finally found him in the DSI as William Russell Sedgfield. He was an engraver and photographer.
Added! Though I'm not sure if he was an illustrator or engraver.
Tommy the pet lizard.
Some rather nice (and imaginary) sketches of #walrus

A "Q"! I need 11 more letters to complete my alphabet. 😃
A lovely illustration by Worthington G Smith #WGS Funkia grandiflora - hosta.
#ad. "A succulent sprout of mammoth proportions!" #dailyzoo
MJD - the illustrator is referred to as Mr Davidson in the text. I assume "Gardchron" means Gardeners' Chronicle.
Given all the refs to Kew Gardens I wonder if MS might be Matilda Smith (also known as Martha Smith - and MS) who apparently studied at Kew.
Hmm - the article seems to be by HCR of Kensington. No idea who that is - yet - but it looks like s/he could also draw!
We were asked to tag some of them in Talk (Ruffle, Strutt etc) so I presume we don't need to add them as keywords too.
And one of them is a #ruffle
Great! I think these were drawn by Peter Lackerbauer and engraved by Félix Leblanc. I checked with DSI and have added them to the lists.
And another #ruffle
Yes - I like this one. I have a favourite T and F too. 😃
Quite a lot of work went into producing these - just for decorative purposes too.
I started a collection with this in mind! I'll tag them. Good idea. 😃
#dailyzoo Cool 14th century wall decoration.

#EdwKite (anastat). I've been wondering what" anastat" meant. The Anastatic Press in Ipswich is a clue. There's more info in the discussion.
Now they're just teasing us. Better watch out for future ads then - for another #orchidobserver item!
I agree - one example looks like CWR to me. No idea who that can be.
Can't make out the inscription on this one.
Q: Do cats eat frogs? A: Yes they do!

Yes the ref to fig 156 is on previous page.Sometimes we don't land on the right BHL page. Clicking the previous/next page tool will find it.
I knew I'd seen this before somewhere - it's from a 17th century bestiary. I've put details in the Discussion area if anyone is interested.
Some interesting sounding #books.
There's a better inscription signature on the page before this one but I still can't make it out. Last name might be #West.

I would mark it as an image and tag it with Cunnington's name.

Yes - I have followed these handwritten items too as I've been caught out before by the lack of a hashtag search!
I had this. I think I put "deformed sheep" as one of the keywords - in keeping with the language used in the article.
Just adding a #handwritten tag so I can find this again.
Another #handwritten page. I didn't classify this one either.
Another #handwritten one.
The Issac Newton example should be classified as an image but I'm not sure about this one.
I agree these handwritten items should go in the FAQ. Maybe we need confirmation from a team member first on whether to classify or not.
Do we need a hashtag? Maybe #reusedimage
Noted - thanks ssgiris! I think they need their own thread. #crypticinscription #badsig

How to make money from #ale!
How to stuff a bird. #taxidermy
