    Abstract

    (1) THIS handbook appears to be meant specially as a guide to teachers who have to conduct courses of practical instruction in zoology in higher schools and colleges, but whoever works conscientiously through it, whether a prospective school teacher or not, will have gone through an excellent course in practical zoology on the “type” system. He will have given himself a practical training of a much sounder and more extensive kind than is, we fear, commonly attempted by those who have to conduct such courses in the schools of this country. We fancy i that if our science masters had to work through a course such as is given in the book now under notice we should find them teaching in theii turn something rather different from what so frequently, with us, masquerades under the name “nature study.”
