The Palaeontographical Society has been publishing monographs on the fossil faunas and floras of the British Isles since 1848. These now run to over 600 issues (single monographs or parts thereof) written by more than 100 authors. Each part describes and illustrates the fossil species of a major taxonomic group that are found in a particular time interval and/or region. A catalogue of the contents of the annual volumes from 1848 to 1980, giving full citation details and dates of publications can be downloaded from here (PDF 4.3Mb)
