Strana 299 - REEVE -CONCHOLOGIA SYSTEMATICA : Or, Complete System of Conchology: in which the Lepades and Mollusca are described and classified according to their Natural Organization and Habits ; illustrated with 300 highly finished copper-plate engravings, by Messrs.
Strana 290 - To render the subject of ornithology clear, and its study attractive, has been the great aim of the author of this beautiful little volume. ... It is embellished by upwards of seventy figures of British birds beautifully coloured.
