After stating that the observations were made, by means of a microscope of the best construction, upon many thousand preparations of the spinal cord of a man, a calf, a sheep, a pig, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, a guinea-pig and a frog, he describes the methods adopted in making these preparations. Marked on title page as 'Not to be printed - see other copy'.|
