preface.

The woodcuts illustrating all four volumes are the work of Mr. P. J. Smit, except in a very few cases, when the origin of the cuts is acknowledged.

Lastly, I would express a hope that the series of volumes on Indian Vertebrata now concluded may contribute to a fuller knowledge of the animals inhabiting the country and may facilitate the study of them, and by so doing fulfil the design with which this work was undertaken.

W. T. BLANFORD.
