the crayfish – T.H. Huxley

image from http://www.gbcma.vic.gov.au/A free version on Huxley’s classic book The Crayfish is maintained on online by Rich Palmer, at the University of Alberta.

The book is subtitled: ‘An introduction to the study of zoology’. I particularly enjoy the ‘kinder, gentler’ writing style and it feels (or perhaps more accurately – reads) as though Huxley is very attuned to a more holistic approach to describing the crayfish.

The online version is supported by the original elegant woodblock illustrations and, as well, Rich has created a glossary (which was not part of the orginial edition).
