It appears that Wiley has messed up its metadata, which is unfortunate since the registered DOIs encode the incorrect metadata! At least 2 issues are affected..

If the binders of the journal at the Smithsonian got the correct title page (http://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/13496974) associated with the associated parts the scanning of the object at BHL has to be correct - this could be confirmed if other Libraries who hold this item have the same title page + ToC.

Cannot check what Wiley has, behind a paywall.

What is going on here, can anyone tell me? What BHL has as Transactions of the Entomological Society of London vol. 1 part 1 (1836) (http://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/13496972), Wiley has as vol. 2 part 1 (1837) (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/een.1837.2.issue-1/issuetoc)! Wtf!
This is a good example, by the way, of a data confusion!
