Reader's note

This impressive antique tome is a wonderful addition to any home reference library. Filled with information, line drawings and diagrams throughout, this title is essential to any budding biologist. The following extract is taken from chapter 32, The Order of Reptiles, when Nicholson writes of crocodiles - the tongue is thick and fleshy, and immovably attached to the floor of the mouth (hence the belief of the ancients that the crocodile had no tongue.) The eye has two eyelids and a 'membrana nicitans' or third eyelid, and the external nostrils and openings of the ears are closed by valvular folds of the skin. - the world of nature is full of fascinating creatures to discover and learn about! Further your own education with this beautiful old book.
