The general systematic treatment of the subject is the same as that adopted in Mr. Blanford's volume on Mammals in the Fauna of British India; and the author takes the opportunity of stating how much he has been indebted to that admirable work on this and other occasions. The descriptions of the different animals are, however, drawn up on somewhat more popular lines than in Mr. Blanford's work. And it will be found that species are divided up into local races to a greater extent than in the latter this being due to the more detailed study which has been expended on the subject since the appearance of the volume in question.
