The Foraminifera, an Introduction to the Study of the Protozoa


THE contents of this book may be divided into two parts, general and special. Beginning with the latter, we find presented in a convenient form (chapters vii.—xvi.) an account of the families and genera of the Foraminifera. One species of each genus is described and figured, the conditions of its occurrence and its palæontological history being also given. The figures are reproductions of pen and ink sketches, and in most cases will no doubt enable the student to refer his specimens to their proper genera. Some are, however, too indefinite to serve even this purpose, and the attractiveness of the book would have been increased if more care had been taken to give something of the elegance and finish of the natural objects.
