Bibliotheca Herpetologica 16(8)

Bauer, A. M. 2022. Additions to the Herpetological Bibliography of Johann Gottlob Schneider and some Bibliographic Details of Der Naturfreund oder Beiträge zur Schlesischen Naturgeschichte. Bibliotheca Herpetologica 16(8):90–93. Published July 2, 2022.

Bauer and Lavilla (2022) recently published a translation of Historiae Amphibiorum, the greatest herpetological work of the German philologist and natural historian Johann Gottlob Schneider (1750–1822). In the associated introductory text, they provided a bibliography of Schneider’s published works comprising 127 books and articles. This bibliography had been compiled from a diversity of sources, both philological and biological. Almost immediately upon publication, however, I was made aware of several herpetological contributions by Schneider that had been omitted—all published in a single volume of a serial publication, Der Naturfreund oder Beiträge zur Schlesischen Naturgeschichte. These papers include no taxonomic novelties and largely repeat Schneider’s earlier treatments of the species he discussed, nonetheless, for the sake of completeness, they should be appended to Schneider’s bibliography.
