The Animals of Australia Mammals, Reptiles, and Amphibians


    MESSRS. LUCAS AND LE SOUËF have given us a book which ought to find a very hearty welcome, especially amongst Australian naturalists. Whilst intended primarily for the general reader, the arrangement and treatment are throughout thoroughly scientific, and the illustrations, many of which are from original photographs, are, on the whole, very good. The full-page photograph of a wheelbarrow on p. 179 is perhaps a little superfluous, however. It is true that the wheelbarrow contains a snake, but it is a very small one, and a much better photograph of the same snake is given on another page.
