Abstract

A discourse on the careers and events that relate to Everard Home's Lectures on Comparative Anatomy, published in six volumes, of which the final supplementary volume of 1828 is in the Gordon Craig Library. This volume contains 68 engravings, of subjects as diverse as the stomach of the alpaca and the female organs of the duckbilled platypus Ornithorhynchus, and Home's credentials occupy about half of the title page.
