Preface
It is hoped that the account given, in thefollowing pages, of the lives of five greatnaturalists may not be found devoid of interest.The work of each one of them marked a definiteadvance in the science of Biology.There is often among students of anatomy and physiology a tendency to imagine that thefacts with which they are now being madefamiliar have all been established by recentobservation and experiment. But even the slightknowledge of the history of Biology, which may  be obtained from a perusal of this little book, willshow that, so far from such being the case, this branch of science is of venerable antiquity. And,further, if in the place of this misconception adesire is aroused in the reader for a fulleracquaintance with the writings of the earlanatomists the chief aim of the author will have been fulfilled.
