THIS little book has been compiled by Prof. Hatschek and Dr. Cori, as a guide to dissection, for the use of elementary students attending lectures in Prag. The fact that no less than ten animals are dealt with in little over one hundred octavo pages sufficiently indicates the scope of the work, which contains simply concise notes of the more important characters of the animals treated, and technical directions for dissecting them. The characters referrėd to are always such as can be demonstrated by simple dissection, without complicated methods of preparation, and without the use of the compound microscope. It follows from this that the Protozoa are entirely excluded, as are also the Cœlentera.
