Excerpt from The Geography of Mammals
The first seven chapters of this volume were written by my son, Mr. W. L. Sclater, and published in The Geographical Journal (1894-97). They are now reprinted here, with some slight alterations, by the kind permission of the Council of the Royal Geographical Society. The eighth chapter, on Marine Mammals, was read by me as a paper at a meeting of the Zoological Society of London on March 16, 1897, and was subsequently published in the Society's Proceedings. It is reproduced here, with slight alterations, by the kind permission of that Society. The remaining chapters of this volume, in which the distribution of Mammals is treated of systematically, have been prepared by me specially for the present work.
Of the fifty illustrations contained in the text, which have been selected to show some of the chief Mammals typical of the different Regions, forty have been drawn by Mr. J. Smit specially for the present work.
