Description

Recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Paper is supplemental to a earlier one by the same author, published in the Philosophical Transactions in 1849. Refers to recent work by Anders Retzius, Dr Leidy [?] and Guillot [?], and the views of Kiernan [?]. The paper is prolix, poorly arranged and provides nothing new, but does confirm earlier researches. 'It would be improved by condensation and curtailment'.
