A Laboratory Manual for Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy


THIS work is the outcome of a particular course of practical lessons conducted by its author. The disability which such an origin fastens upon a book is well known to every teacher of zoology, and Mr. Hyman's book is no exception to the rule. It suffers from the conditions of its birth—not that these, though American, were insalubrious, but that they were so highly specialised as to limit greatly the adaptability of the offspring. Nevertheless the care that has obviously been taken by the author, and his ability in presentation, should make his book useful even in our small cis-Atlantic schools of zoology, where a somewhat more elastic course of instruction is possible than that provided at Chicago.
