A Manual of the Anatomy of Invertebrated Animals


    IN the year 1871 Prof. Huxley published a Manual of the Anatomy of Vertebrated Animals as the first part of a treatise on Comparative Anatomy. By the publication during the present autumn of the work now about to be noticed, he has fulfilled his undertaking to produce a treatise for students on this extensive and complex branch of anatomical inquiry. As might be expected from the author's well-won reputation, not only as a philosophical thinker and scientific observer, but as extensively read in the literature of his subject, the work is one which, in proportion to its size, furnishes the student with the most compact account of the present aspect of the science of comparative anatomy in the English language.
