Abriss der Zoologie für Studirende, Ärzte und Lehrer


    IN this octavo volume of over 360 pages we have a sketch of the modern aspect of zoology fairly well executed, and with woodcut illustrations after Frey, Hæckel, Kölliker, and Gegenbaur. The first section treats of zoology in general, discusses the subject of the differences between the animal and vegetable kingdoms, and considers the animal in general. The second section is devoted to the morphology and developmental history of animals. The third is the systematic portion. The classification adopted is for the most part a copy of Claus's. The volume forms a handy compendium of zoological science, and, like all the works from the establishment of the well-known Leipzig publisher, is well printed on good paper.
