Notice by Joseph Henry states "The present list completes the European portion of the series intended to show what works have been received in the way of exchange by the Smithsonian Institution, and includes likewise all transactions of learned societies and periodicals which have in any way been added to its library. Part first was published in Vol. VII of Smithsonian Contributions to Knowledge, and embraced the countries for which Dr. Flgel acted as agent ... The present or second part includes France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, the agents for which countries are Hector Bossange, Paris, and Henry Stevens, London." As with the previous list, publications are grouped by country of origin and mentioned under the "society or party" that donated the work.
