Excerpt from Mammalia, Recent and Extinct: An Elementary Treatise for the Use of the Public Schools of New South Wales

The following pages, briefly descriptive of the economy of Seals, Dugongs, and Whales, and of their principal fossil allies, form the and Part, or Section B, of an "Elementary Treatise on the Mammalia," designed for the use of the more advanced pupils in the Public Schools of this Country under the direction of the Council of Education.

In issuing this portion of the work in question before the I St Part or Section A, I feel that I have travelled out of the order of arrangement, as specified in the proposed synopsis of the Mammalian group in page 2 ;some remarks, therefore, by way of explanation for leaving the "unguiculata" to be hereafter dealt with, become necessary.

Whatever information we possess upon the natural history of the finned mammals, particularly in a popular, yet scientific form, has been so scantily and unequally distributed, that in this direction a comparatively new field may be said to be open to the teacher as well as to the youthful inquirer.
