Francis Leavenworth discovered NGC 7188 = LM 1-247 on 9 Oct 1885 and reported "eF; pS; E; lbM." His rough position (nearest min of RA) is 25 seconds west and 1' south of ESO 601-011. Herbert Howe measured an accurate position in 1898-99 with the 20" refractor at Denver. I'm surprised John Herschel missed this galaxy as he observed the other three members in the NGC 7184 group.
