Addional Notes:


The Zoology of the Voyage of H.M.S. Erebus & Terror, The Birds of New Zealand. The part by G.R. Gray was first published in 3 parts about 1844/1845 and included 22 plates. The work remained unfinished until 1875, when the work was edited by R. Bowdler Sharpe, who added an appendix and the remaining 15 plates. The expedition of the H.M.S. Erebus & Terror took place in 1839-1845 under the Command of Capt. J.C. Ross. The published results of this exploratory voyage are quite scarce. This is especially the case for the section on the Birds of New Zealand.
