Excerpt from The Vertebrate Skeleton In the following pages the terms skeleton is used in its widest sense, so as to include exoskeletal or tegumentary structure, as well as endoskeletal structures. It was thought advisable to include some account of the skeleton of the lowest Chordata animals which are not strictly vertebrates, but it seemed undesirable to alter the title of the book in consequence. The plan adopted in the treatment of each group has been to give first an account of the general skeletal characters of the group in question and of its several subdivisions: secondly to describe in detail the skeleton of one or more selected types: and thirdly to treat the skeleton as developed in the group organ by organ. A beginner is advised to commence, not with the introductory chapter, but with the skeleton of the Dogfish, then to pass to the skeletons of the Newt and Frog, and then to that of the Dog. After that he might pass to the introductory chapter and work straight through the book. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
