Manuscript notebook, opened at both ends. Writing on covers reads "Register Birds. 1858" and "Register Insects. 1858". Content includes lists of insects and birds specimens from the Malay Archipelago, localities where collected and lists of those sent to buyers, including accounts. Pages are dated from 1858 to 1866 [content written after ARW's return to England on 1st April 1862 consists largely of financial accounts]. Kept together with WCP4766 in one Solander box incorrectly titled Ms Notebook 1855-58.
Handwritten by author in English.
Images of pages from "reading order" number 200 have been rotated 180 degrees so that they may be more easily read. The text on these pages runs from reading order p. 274 to p. 200. Note that there is an error in the pencil page number sequence: a page between "102" and "104" has been skipped, so the page numbered "104" is really 106 in this sequence.
