THIS work, published under the patronage of the American Museum of Natural History, but printed in Holland without date, is a very complete and wellillustrated description of the anatomy of one of the commonest Cephalopods. As such it should meet with a warm welcome from all serious students of the mollusca. We believe the squid is a type not usually dissected by zoological students in this country, but for the sake of comparison, at any rate, the work should find a place in the zoological laboratory.
