GIVE in the following pages an account of one hun

dred and seventeen kinds of animals, with shorter references to some others, the great majority of which are certain to be represented in most Zoological Gardens. These types of vertebrate life are placed in due relation to each other by some details concerning the structure and classification of the vertebrata, which precede in an orderly way the sections referring to those several types. The volume thus contains a sketch of vertebrate life which may serve as an introduction to more exhaustive studies. It will also, I hope, be of some assistance to those who desire to know something of the great variety of animal life exhibited in these institutions, and as a guide to the mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians therein collected together.

FRANK E. BEDDARD.

October, 1904.
