Morphology and Anthropology

Nature volume 96, page 648 (10 February 1916) | Download Citation



IN the eleven years which have elapsed since Dr. Duckworth's indispensable manual made its first appearance, there has been a rapid growth in all those branches of knowledge on which “Morphology and Anthropology” are based. This is especially the case as regards our knowledge of the anatomy of the Primates—particularly of the anthropoid apes. Hence in the present edition of his manual Dr. Duckworth has found it necessary to expand that section which deals with the anatomy of the Primates and with the position of the Primates in the mammalian phylum to such an extent that it now appears as a separate volume. In its present shape this volume gives an excellent introduction to a systematic study of the anatomy of man and of the animals which are closely related to man in structure and in origin. So far as we know, there is no other book in the English language which covers the same ground.
