The Arachnida



THE Arachnida have been unduly neglected by zoologists, having been overshadowed as objects of study by the beauty and infinite variety of the insects. The study of the class has been difficult, owing to the scattered literature and the scarcity of several of the forms. Of the ten existing orders, only four are represented in Great Britain, and several of the smaller orders do not reach the confines of Europe. Mr. Savory has now given us a generalised account of the class as a whole, for which all zoologists and naturalists will be grateful.
