    The authors are well known as clear and precise exponents
    of their subject. In his text-book they have produced an
    introduction both to general zoology as well as to that
    specific phase of it called “economic.”

    The first chapters introduce the reader to general facts of
    animal structure and life and are arranged on the basis of
    accepted pedagogic principles. The latter chapters, arranged on
    a basis of animal classification proceeding from the samples
    to the nine highly developed groups, include not only general
    facts pertaining to the groups treated, but introduce and give
    general attention to the economic relations of the various
    members of the groups. Finally, there is presented a form of
    encyclopædic treatment of a wide range of facts wholly economic
    in aspect.
