Abstract (from CDS):

New positions (good to ± 15 arcsec), revised sizes, and sample cross-identifications are presented for dwarf galaxies and published by Mailyan (1973). Of the 104 originally catalogued galaxies we were able to recover only 100, despite an extensive search of the red and blue POSS prints. Over half of the recovered objects were found to correspond to previously catalogued galaxies; few if any of these are dwarf spheroidal galaxies, but rather mostly dwarf irregulars of low surface brightness.
