Man, oh man. This is the stuff detective novels are made of. I read
your account of de Candolle, Richard and Prodromus and Rubiaceae with
eyes glued to the boob tube.
I work on spiders, but I recall getting, through Weldon and Wesley in UK,
some separates of last century spider works published in France and
Belgium. It took me a long time to figure out what was going on. Your
account of different pagination and year for a "preprint" or "reprint"
versus that in the regular issue of the journal brought back all my
memories of digging efforts to solve the problem. In some ways I am
pleased to see that the problem is not unique to spider taxonomy.
