TWENTIETH CENTURY ZOOLOGY.

Animal Life.

A First Book of Zočiogy. By President DAVID STARR JORDAN and VERNON L. KELLOGG, M.S., Professor of Entomology in Leland Stanford Junior University. 12mo. Cloth, $1.20.

“I believe it is an excellent thing, filling a gap that has long been apparent in our nature work in this country.”Prof. Lawrence Bruner, University of Nebraska.

“ Your book is certainly an admirable discussion of biological problems up to date. It is interesting, and stimulative of thought and observation.”—Elliott R. Downing, University of Chicago.

The ecological treatment of zoölogy here finds a truly successful exhibition, and it is certainly very satisfactory and ahead of all previous attempts at a similar exposition for beginners in zoölogy.”— Prof. Julius Nelson, Rutgers College.

"It is by far the best text-book on zoölogy yet published for the use of high-school students. It breathes the freshness of nature. Fortunate is the school that is permitted to use it.”,- Principal W. N. Bush, Polytechnic High School, San Francisco, Cal.

Animal Forms.

By President DAVID STARR JORDAN and HAROLD HEATH, Ph.D., Professor of Zoology in Leland Stanford Junior University. 12mo. Cloth, $1.10.

“ Animal Forms” deals similarly with animal morphology, structure and life processes, from the lowest, simplest, one-celled creations to the highest and most complex. The two complete a full year's work in zoölogy.

The first chapter defines zoology, and explains minutely the morphology of a typical animal. The second chapter discusses cells and protoplasm, and prepares the pupil for an intelligent and logical study of the general subject.

In simplicity of style, in correctness of scientific statement, in profuseness and perfectness of illustration, these books are without a peer. A Laboratory Manual is in preparation. Teachers' Manuals free.
