About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and German

The type catalogue of the Museum Heineanum in Halberstadt gives an overview of history, sources, documentation, and importance of the collections and provides in its taxonomic part a list of type specimens of birds in the museum. All known type specimens of the bird collection of Ferdinand Heine sen. (1809-1894) have been brought together, in total 328 specimens (94 holo-, 228 syn-, 6 lectotypes) of 210 taxa. Most were described by Jean Cabanis and/or Ferdinand Heine jun. in their collection catalogue "Museum Heineanum" (published 1850-1863). Furthermore, types described by C.L. Brehm and A.E. Brehm (7), E.F. von Homeyer (3), A. Reichenow (3), W.F. Hemprich and C.G. Ehrenberg (2), L. Reichenbach (2), W. Schlüter (2), P.L. Sclater (2). H. Lichtenstein (1), and H. Schlegel (1) are listed. 20 type specimens of 17 taxa were either destroyed during World War II (or shortly afterwards) or got lost in another way.

The type catalogue shows the close connection between scientific collections and collectors during the 19th and early 20th century, and between the collection of Ferdinand Heine in Halberstadt and the Zoological Museum in Berlin in particular.
