This, the third volume of this highly artistic and scientific work, has many features of attractiveness. The plates comprise beautiful illustrations, from photographs, of typical specimens of rhinocephalus, cyclocephalus, acephalus and diprosopus. The plates represent the various monstrosities in several positions, thus giving a most accurate demonstration of the peculiarities of each, and enabling the seeker after information, to classify any particular specimen quite readily.
