THIS long-promised and hoped-for book has at last appeared, and we may say at once that it fully maintains the well-earned reputation of its learned author.

By George Rolleston, D.M., F.R.S., Linacre Professor of Anatomy and Physiology in the University of Oxford. (Oxford: Macmillan and Co., 1870; Clarendon Press Series.)
