4 editions published in 1875 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present contribution to North American Herpetology is a prodromus of a general work on that subject, undertaken some years ago at the request of the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution. The material which has been accumulating in the museum of that Institution has offered great advantages for the investigation of the questions of anatomical structure, variations of specific characters, and geographical distribution. It is believed that these subjects are much elucidated by the study of the Batrachia and Reptilia, since these animals are especially susceptible to physical influences; also, they are unable, like birds, and generally not disposed, as are mammals, to make extended migrations, their habitats express nearly the simplest relations of life to its surroundings."--Page 3

The relation of the nearctic and neotropical faunae at their point of junction is as yet a problem not fully solved. Various important features of the fauna of Texas require us to place it within the Nearctic realm; for although it possesses a number of genera which are common to this realm and the Neotropical, there are numerous genera which belong to the former exclusively, and very few that belong to the latter alone
