The books which have appeared on this subject are the following:
1. Strauss-Durckheim, H. Anatomie descriptive et comparative du Chat. 2 vols. Paris, I 845.
2. Mivart, St. George. The Cat : an Introduction to the Study of Back-boned Animals, especially Mammals. New York, 1881.
3. Wilder, Burt G., and Gage, Simon H. Anatomical Technology as applied to the Domestic Cat. New York, 1882.
4. Gorham, F. P., and Tower, R. W. A Laboratory Guide for the Dissection of the Cat. New York, 1895.
5. Jayne, H. Mammalian Anatomy. Vol. I. Philadelphia, 1898.
The first of these works treats only of the muscles and bones, and is not available for American students. Its excellent plates (or Williams's outline reproductions of the same) should be in every laboratory. The second book named is written in such general terms that its descriptions are not readily applicable to the actual structures found in the dissection of the cat, and experience has shown that it is not fitted for a laboratory handbook.
It contains, in addition to a general account of the anatomy of the cat, also a discussion of its embryology, psychology, paloeontology, and classification.
