Booknews
**** A reprint of Thompson's classic work on animal morphology, first published by Cambridge U. Press in 1942 and endorsed by BCL3 (and every other competent bibliography on biology). Now printed on acid-free paper, but bound using the sewn-look fraud we characterize as notch glued. (This lapse is a shock--Dover has led the pack in producing well-constructed and very inexpensive books.) Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
