EXPLANATION OF THE PLATES,
(See Plates XVI, XVII, XVIII, XIX, XX, XXI, XXII.)
Six of the following Plates are taken from drawings made by Mr. Howship, who very kindly undertook that task, during the indisposition of Mr. Clift, and his knowledge of anatomy, which he has cultivated with much ardour, induced me to solicit his assistance upon this occasion.

Fig. 2. A portion of the elastic fibrous structure with which the fin is tipped, of its natural size.
