Yet there are many whole animals, and, in particular, parts of animals, which must be seen in the living state, to be at all comprehended by even the most brilliant mind; and this fact has induced me to make drawings and notes of many interesting matters connected with the pelagic mollusca, when the living animals fell casually under my own observation.
