Notes:

The first 5 volumes were issued in monthly parts, each consisting of 2 plates and accompanying text.

A volume came out each year between 1794 and 1798; the fifth volume stated: "This work being now completed." However, five additional volumes, numbered 6-10, were published between 1816 and 1819.

"[W]e have also placed an index, in the manner of Pennant and Latham, at the conclusion of each volume"--v. 1, p. [7] (1st group).

Each plate accompanied by 1-6 pages of descriptive letterpress.

Vol. I. 1794; plates 1-24. v. 2. 1795; plates 25-48. v. 3. 1796; plates 49-72. v. 4. 1797; plates 73-100. v. 5. 1798, plates 101-124. v. 6. 1809; plates 125-148. v. 7. 1816; plates 149-172. v. 8. 1817; plates 173-196. v. 9. 1818; plates 197-220. v. 10. 1819, plates 221-244.

Publisher varies. Volume 6 and the remaining volumes have "Printed for the author, and for F.C. and J. Rivington ...."

Printers include: Law and Gilbert (v. 6); R. & R. Gilbert (v. 7); and R. Gilbert (v. 10).

Donovan based some of his descriptions and illustrations on the bird specimens he acquired from the Leverian Museum.

A companion volume by Donovan, The natural history of the nest and eggs of British birds, was issued begining in 1826, but remained unfinished with just 5 parts (of an anticipated 24 parts) completed.

Erratum on the final p. of v. 9.
