Abstract

Edward Bartlett (ca. 1836-1908) was the second Curator of the Sarawak Museum, Kuching between 1895-97, succeeding George Darby Haviland (1857-1901), and preceding Robert Walter Campbell Shelford (1872-1912). Nothing is known of his early life, except that he was presumably from England, and by May 1887, had taken up position of Superintendent of the London Zoo. Some correspondence between George Albert Boulenger (1858-1937), of the British Museum, Natural History, London, on the herpetology of Borneo did take place (see Wahlgren, 1999). Besides adding to the zoological collections of the museum, Bartlett also published in local journals during his all too brief tenure. An allround naturalist, he published articles on mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and butterflies. His most important herpetological contribution was a 24-page account of the crocodiles and lizards of Borneo that were represented in the Sarawak Museum, including the description of seven new species of lizards (Bartlett 1895e; see Appendix 1).
