About this book

First published in 1904 as the second edition of a 1901 original, Zoology: An Elementary Text-Book provides a beginner's guide to zoology, from simple life forms to more sophisticated vertebrates. At the end of the sections on each phylum a short table of classification is given to indicate the general position of the animals mentioned in the general scheme of the animal kingdom. The text is richly illustrated with over three hundred diagrams and drawings for ease of comprehension. Zoology: An Elementary Text-Book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of education.
