1989ApJS...69..763F SPECTROSCOPY AND PHOTOMETRY OF ELLIPTICAL GALAXIES. VI. SAMPLE SELECTION AND DATA SUMMARY S. M. FABER Lick Observatory and Board of Studies in Astronomy and Astrophysics, University of California, Santa Cruz GARY WEGNER Department of Physics and Astronomy, Dartmouth College DAVID BURSTEIN Department of Physics, Arizona State University ROGER L. DAVIES Kitt Peak National Observatory, National Optical Astronomy Observatories ALAN DRESSLER Mount Wilson and Las Campanas Observatories of the Carnegie Institution of Washington D. LYNDEN-BELL Institute of Astronomy, The Observatories, Cambridge, England AND R. J. TERLEVICH Royal Greenwich Observatory Received 1988 July 8; accepted 1988 September 9 ABSTRACT Photometric and spectroscopic data are presented for a survey of the nearest and brightest elliptical galaxies. Distances, velocities relative to the cosmic rest frame, and residual velocities relative to a velocity-flow model are calculated for individual galaxies and groups. Information is provided on the selection and completeness of the target and observed samples. Both samples appear to be noticeably deeper in the north than in the south. A new diameter system for ellipticals is described that is easy to measure on survey prints and is a useful indicator of B_T_ magnitude. Subject headings: galaxies: clustering - galaxies: photometry - galaxies: redshifts ############################################################################ 1989ApJS...71..173F ERRATA In the paper "Spectroscopy and Photometry of Elliptical Galaxies. VI. Sample Selection and Data Summary" by S. M. Faber, G. Wegner, D. Burstein, Roger L. Davies, A. Dressler, D. Lynden-Bell, and R. J. Terlevich (Ap. J. Suppl., 69, 763 [1989] the (B-V)_0_ coIors listed in Table 1, column (9), are incorrectly identified in the text as coming from an average of all photoelectric observations made in apertures <=67" in diameter. The (B - V)_0_ colors in apertures <=67" in diameter are given in a paper by David Burstein, Roger L. Davies, Alan Dressler, S. M. Faber, Remington P. S. Stone, Donald Lynden-Bell, Roberto J. Terlevich, and Gary Wegner (Ap. J. Suppl., 64, 601 [1987]). The (B-V)_0_ colors listed in Tab1e 1 in the present paper come from an average of all photoelectric observations made in apertures <=30" in diameter. The number of observations per galaxy given in Table 1 also refers to those made in apertures <= 30" in diameter. In both cases, the colors given are corrected for the same Galactic extinction and cosmological effects. The incorrect identification of the aperture size of the (B-V)_0_ colors has no other effect on this paper. We thank Marijn Franx for first pointing out the difference in the (B - V)0 colors listed in the present paper and Burstein et al. (1987).
