IC 1850 (= PGC 1426583 =
NGC 1111 ??? = NGC 1109 ????)
Possibly recorded (Dec 2, 1863) by Albert Marth (and later listed as NGC 1109)
Possibly recorded (Dec 2, 1863) by Albert Marth (and later listed as NGC 1111)
Discovered (Jan 7, 1896) by Stephane Javelle (and later listed as IC 1850)
A magnitude 15.2 lenticular galaxy (type S0/a) in Aries (RA 02 48 39.3, Dec +13 15 33)
Per Dreyer, IC 1850 (Javelle 955, 1860 RA 02 41 02, NPD 77 20.7) is "faint, small, diffuse". The position precesses to RA 02 48 40.6, Dec +13 14 29, only an arcmin south southeast of the nearby galaxy, so the identification is reasonably certain. However, as noted at the entries for NGC 1109 and 1111, whether it is either or neither of those NGC objects is a matter of considerable debate, and it is probably best to consider NGC 1109 and 1111 as lost, and discuss the candidates suggested for their identification (one of which is IC 1850) independently, and without any reference to their possible NGC conncections save as a warning against giving any credence to such identifications. Based on a recessional velocity of 9010 km/sec, IC 1850 is about 420 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 0.7 by 0.35 arcmin, it is about 85 thousand light years across.

IC 1851 (= HD 17581)
Recorded (late 1890's?) by
Edward Barnard
A magnitude 6 star (and emission nebula?) in Cassiopeia (RA 02 51 45.9, Dec +58 18 52)
Per Dreyer, IC 1851 (Barnard, 1860 RA 02 41 17, NPD 32 16.1) is a "6.2 magnitude star, nebula attached to southwest, 5' long". The position precesses to RA 02 51 46.4, Dec +58 18 52, exactly on 6th magnitude star HD 17581, so the identification is certain. The only question is whether there is a nebula at this position, or Barnard simply mistook the glare from the star as a nebulous glow (though Corwin suggests that having being photographically observed, the 'nebula' may have been a plate defect).

IC 1852 (= PGC 10660 =
NGC 1109??? and/or NGC 1112???)
Possibly recorded (Dec 2, 1863) by Albert Marth (and later listed as NGC 1109)
Possibly recorded (Dec 2, 1863) by Albert Marth (and later listed as NGC 1112)
Discovered (Jan 7, 1896) by Stephane Javelle (and later listed as IC 1852)
A magnitude 13.8 spiral galaxy (type SAB(s)c) in Aries (RA 02 49 00.4, Dec +13 13 25)
Per Dreyer, IC 1852 (Javelle 956, 1860 RA 02 41 21, NPD 77 22.9) is "faint, pretty small, round, gradually brighter middle". The position precesses to RA 02 48 59.6, Dec +13 12 15, a little over an arcmin due south of the only nearby galaxy, so the IC identification is certain. However, its possible correlation with previously recorded NGC objects is far more complicated and equally uncertain. IC 1852 has been tentatively identified as the otherwise lost NGC 1109 (by LEDA) and as the otherwise lost NGC 1112 (by NED, although with a caveat that the identification is very uncertain; LEDA doesn't even list NGC 1112). As discussed at their respective NGC entries, these identifications are so uncertain that it seems best to treat the NGC entries as lost, and only refer to the galaxies in this region by their IC or PGC or other non-NGC designations, and only mention the possible NGC connections as a warning against giving any credence to those identifications. Based on a recessional velocity of 8385 km/sec, IC 1852 is about 390 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 1.2 by 0.9 arcmin, it is about 135 thousand light years across.

IC 1853 (= PGC 10595)
Discovered (Jan 23, 1900) by
Herbert Howe
A magnitude 13.7 spiral galaxy (type SB(rs)b?) in Eridanus (RA 02 48 04.3, Dec -13 59 36)
Per Dreyer, IC 1853 (Howe list III (#8), 1860 RA 02 41 26, NPD 104 34.7) is "extremely faint, very small, (NGC) 1103 2s east and 2' north". The position precesses to RA 02 48 04.9, Dec -13 59 30, right on the galaxy, but even if the position was a bit off the accurate description of its position relative to NGC 1103 would make the identification certain. Based on a recessional velocity of 4140 km/sec, IC 1853 is about 195 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 1.0 by 0.4 arcmin, it is about 55 thousand light years across.

IC 1854 (= PGC 10684)
Discovered (Jan 18, 1898) by
Stephane Javelle
A magnitude 13.9 lenticular galaxy (type S0/a?) in Aries (RA 02 49 20.6, Dec +19 18 16)
Per Dreyer, IC 1854 (Javelle 957, 1860 RA 02 41 28, NPD 71 16.3) is "faint, very small, round, bright middle and nucleus". The position precesses to RA 02 49 20.9, Dec +19 18 49, just over half an arcmin north of the galaxy, so the identification is certain. Based on a recessional velocity of 9300 km/sec, IC 1854 is about 435 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 0.6 by 0.5 arcmin, it is about 75 thousand light years across. It is a Seyfert galaxy (type Sy 1.5 or 2).

IC 1855 (= PGC 1431167 ?)
Discovered (Jan 7, 1896) by
Stephane Javelle
A magnitude 15.0 lenticular galaxy (type S0/a) in Aries (RA 02 49 04.3, Dec +13 26 34)
Per Dreyer, IC 1855 (Javelle 958, 1860 RA 02 41 37, NPD 77 13.2) is "faint, pretty large, double north south, binary nucleus". The position precesses to RA 02 49 16.0, Dec +13 21 55, but there is nothing there. Normally there would be some kind of comment by one or more of the people who have been trying to identify the traditional NGC/IC objects to explain how the position corresponding to a nonexistent object was connected to a particular galaxy, but I can find no explanation for this object's identification. The only thing I can think of is the description of the object as 'double north south, binary nucleus', which would be a good description of the visual appearance of PGC 1431167 and the star immediately to its south. So although I don't consider the identification certain, it at least seems plausible. However, it should be noted that although a LEDA or Wikisky search for IC 1855 leads to a reference to PGC 1431167, neither actually states that IC 1855 is PGC 1431167, so there appears to be at least some doubt about the identification. Based on a recessional velocity of 8620 km/sec, PGC 1431167 is about 400 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 0.45 by 0.3 arcmin, it is about 55 thousand light years across.

IC 1872
Recorded (February, 1891) by
Friedrich Bidschof (16)
A magnitude 15? group of four stars in Perseus (RA 03 04 34.9, Dec +42 48 34)
Corwin cautions that this is not NGC 1174, presumably just in case someone suggests that in the future, no one seeming to have made such a claim to date.

IC 1873 (= PGC 11541)
Discovered (Jan 29, 1897) by
Stephane Javelle (966)
A magnitude 14.3 spiral galaxy (type Sa? pec) in Cetus (RA 03 03 52.8, Dec +09 36 50)
Apparent size 1.1 by 0.7 arcmin? Perhaps accompanied by a magnitude 16.0 compact galaxy just southwest of its nucleus, but given the somewhat distorted appearance of its nucleus, that may simply be a star-forming region within the galaxy.

IC 1874 (= PGC 11652)
Discovered (Jan 18, 1898) by
Stephane Javelle (967)
A magnitude 13.7 lenticular galaxy (type SB0/a??) in Perseus (RA 03 06 21.9, Dec +36 00 54)

IC 1877 (= PGC 11495)
Discovered (Dec 5, 1899) by
DeLisle Stewart (165)
A magnitude 15.4 spiral galaxy (type Sb??) in Horologium (RA 03 03 09.6, Dec -50 30 41)
Apparent size 0.8 by 0.2 arcmin?

IC 1878 (= PGC 11528)
Discovered (Dec 5, 1899) by
DeLisle Stewart (166)
A magnitude 14.6? spiral galaxy (type (R')SB(rs)ab) in Horologium (RA 03 03 40.2, Dec -52 06 28)
Per Corwin, Stewart's description makes it clear that IC 1878 consists of only the barred spiral listed above, and that he did not observe its fainter companion (PGC 11531); but some references include that galaxy as part of the IC entry, so it is discussed immediately below. Apparent size 0.7 by 0.7 arcmin (counting the outer ring). (Note: Although images suggest that the two galaxies may be interacting, IC 1878 is nearly twice as distant as PGC 11531, so they are merely an optical double.)

A magnitude 15.2? spiral galaxy (type S0/a? pec) in Horologium (RA 03 03 43.4, Dec -52 06 06)
Apparent size 0.4 by 0.25 arcmin. (See IC 1878 for images and a discussion of its erroneous inclusion in that entry.) Note: Although the closeup image suggests that the two galaxies may be interacting, IC 1878 is nearly twice as distant as PGC 11531, so they are merely an optical double. (Listed in NED as FAIRALL 0735.)

IC 1879 (= PGC 11542)
Discovered (Dec 5, 1899) by
DeLisle Stewart (167)
A magnitude 15.1 spiral galaxy (type Sc?) in Horologium (RA 03 03 52.5, Dec -52 07 04)
Apparent size 1.2 by 0.2 arcmin? (For now, see IC 1878 for a wide-field image.)

IC 1880 (= PGC 11656)
Discovered (Jan 30, 1900) by
Herbert Howe (10)
A magnitude 13.0 lenticular galaxy (type E/S0??) in Eridanus (RA 03 06 28.4, Dec -09 43 50)

IC 1881 (=
NGC 1213 = PGC 11789)
Discovered (Oct 14, 1884) by Lewis Swift (and later listed as NGC 1213)
Discovered (Jan 10, 1891) by Guillaume Bigourdan (and later listed as IC 1881)
A magnitude 14.4 spiral galaxy (type SA(s)dm) in Perseus (RA 03 09 17.3, Dec +38 38 57)
Per Dreyer, IC 1881 (Bigourdan 253, 1860 RA 03 00 20, NPD 51 52) is "very faint, pretty small, very diffuse (? = 1213)", the question at the end showing the suspicion that it was the same as NGC 1213 (which see for anything other than historical information) right from the start. The position precesses to RA 03 09 17.3, Dec +38 40 22, less than two arcmin north of the galaxy, so the identification is certain. As noted in the entry for NGC 1213, Swift's right ascension was so poor that it was almost inevitable that a later "discovery" would be made, but at least Bigourdan did recognize the possibility that his observation was a rediscovery of Swift's object.

IC 1882 (= PGC 11718)
Discovered (Jan 29, 1894) by
Stephane Javelle (968)
A magnitude 14.0 spiral galaxy (type Sbc??) in Cetus (RA 03 07 49.5, Dec +03 08 50)

Discovered (Oct 18, 1884) by Lewis Swift (and later listed as NGC 1212)
Discovered (late 1890's?) by Edward Barnard (and later listed as IC 1883)
A magnitude 14.6 lenticular galaxy (type S0/a) in Perseus (RA 03 09 42.3, Dec +40 53 35)
Per Dreyer, IC 1883 (Barnard, 1860 RA 03 00 35, NPD 49 38.8) is "small, round, very gradually brighter middle". The position precesses to RA 03 09 41.3, Dec +40 53 50, on the western edge of the galaxy, so the identification is certain. As noted at the entry for NGC 1212 (which see for anything other than historical information), Swift's position was so poor that a later "discovery" was almost inevitable, and in this case the equality of the two entries wasn't recognized until fairly recently.

IC 1899 (= PGC 11930)
Discovered (Dec 22, 1897) by
Lewis Swift
A magnitude 13.4 spiral galaxy (type Sa?) in Fornax (RA 03 12 13.0, Dec -25 18 18)
Per Dreyer, IC 1899 (= Swift list XI (#53), 1860 RA 03 05 46, NPD 115 51.2) is "most extremely faint, small, round, 2 faint stars in line to southwest". The position precesses to RA 03 11 50.5, Dec -25 19 25. There is nothing at that position, but the galaxy listed above is only 5 arcmin east, and there are two 14th magnitude stars in line with it as described, so the identity is certain. Based on a recessional velocity of 6260 km/sec, IC 1899 is about 290 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 1.2 by 0.35 arcmin, it is about 100 thousand light years across.
