1 This account of the nautilus, Cuvier says, the Argonauta argo of Linnæus, wonderful as it may appear, has been often confirmed by modern observation.
2 This, Cuvier says, is not a membrane between the two feet or tentacles, but a distinct membranous delatation of the extremity of each of those two organs.
3 These vessels have been already remarked upon in Note 33 to c. 5 of the present Book.
4 Aristotle, Hist. Anim. B. vi. c. 61.
