I am looking to find out about the fate of the bird and mammal specimens (particularly the types)
collected by Colonel William Henry Sykes from the Deccan region in Southwest India.  More
specifically, I need to know if this material was first given to the Zoological Society of London, before
being purchased by the Natural History Museum [then the British Museum (Natural History)].
