This catalogue is based on a scanned text of E. Hitchcock, 1865, pp. 44-89. This website version is broken into 7 sections, because of its size.

When Edward Hitchcock began collecting footprint specimens, he numbered them sequentially, scratching the number onto the slab. When the Appleton Cabinet was built to house the collection, the specimens were renumbered using fractions, in which the numerator represented the number of a wall, table, or case, and the denominator was the number of the specific specimen at that location. These numbers were published in the "Ichnology of New England" (E. Hitchcock, 1858). The specimens were subsequently listed in the "Supplement to the Ichnology of New England" (E. Hitchcock, 1865), although a few specimens were moved within the collection, and hence renumbered. The collection was enlarged by C. H. Hitchcock after Edward's death in 1864, but there appears to be no written record of these additional specimens (numerator 60 and higher). Because the collection was moved from the Appleton Cabinet to the Pratt Museum after the numbering system was in place, the fractional numbers no longer correspond to a location. The current specimen numbers used by the Pratt Museum catalog are the numerator/denominator system, using the 1865 numbers.
