|Title||Manuscript, 'Second preliminary note on the development of Apteryx' by Thomas Jeffery Parker|
|Description||Parker writes: 'The materials for the present investigation consist of embryos of the three common species of Apteryx, viz., A. australis, A. oweni and A. mantelli. Most of them, including all the earlier stages, were collected for me by Mr. R. Henry, of Lake Te Anau; a nearly ripe embryo of A. mantelli was obtained from Mr. A. Reischek: and I am indebted to Mme. Müller for a half-ripe specimen of A. oweni, and to Sir Walter Buffer for two, somewhat older, of A. mantelli. I desire to record my sincere thanks to the Council of the Royal Society for the grant which has enabled me to defray the expenses of the investigation.'|
Annotations in pencil and ink. Includes one page of figures of the embryo of Apteryx.
