Abstract

[Specimen?] labels of Joseph Rock for birds collected in Likiang [current: Lijiang?] Snow Range (in Yunnan) and possibly other Chinese localities.

Information on each label may include collector number (two numbers: one possibly collector number, the other, possibly catalog number), sex, date, locality, elevation, physical description (including colors), and additional notes. Some labels are written in Chinese. Envelopes are 296024-296099; 296100-296199; 296200-296299; 296300-296399; 296400-296499; 296500-296599; 296600-296697; 296700-296799.
