BOOK NOTICES.

MANUAL OF THE VERTEBRATES OF THE NORTHERN UNITED STATES, including

the District east of the Mississippi River, and north of North Carolina and Tennessee, exclusive of Marine Species. By David Starr Jordan, M. S., M. D., Professor of Natural History in Butler University, and in Indiana State Medical College. Chicago : Jansen, McClurg & Co. 1876. Pages 342. Price $2.00.

We have space this month for a bare reference to this work, having to omit matter already in type to make room for this short notice. The book is just such a one as teachers need who are interested in the subject of which it treats. We saw a practical illustration of the value of the book at Put-in-Bay recently, when it was used to classify a painted turtle that a boy had caught. The classification was skilfully performed by Mr. H. H. Vail, of the firm of Van Antwerp, Bragg, & Co. We shall probably refer again to this work in a subsequent issue.
