On p. 12 he mentions, with bated breath as it were, “the great work of Vialleton.” This “great work” is a very good elementary treatise on embryology which Prof. L. Vialleton, of the University of Montpellier, wrote for his students, and it stands in much the same relationship to the works of Charles Darwin as do those of Mr. Belloc to Shakespeare's.
