The author, in his preface states: "William Boyne in 1858... Justin Simpson in 1872...G C Williamson in 1889 revised... Thomas Sheppard in 1911 wrote a new list which suggests a total of 281. Each of these lists include a number of mis-readings and has been the cause of collectors believing themselves to be in the possession of freshly discovered varieties."
He carries on to say that he hopes to have corrected the errors of the previous publications.
