The Boston Society of Natural History, 1830-1880


    THE Boston Society of Natural History was founded in 1830 by a few earnest men, and in 1880 it resolved to commemorate its fiftieth anniversary by the publication of an historical sketch of its origin and life, and of a special series of scientific memoirs. This resolution has been carried into effect by the issue of a splendid quarto volume of over 600 pages and 40 plates, the paper and typography of which is worthy of the Boston Press.
