Figures 357, 358, and 359 of the 1887 volume Popular Zoology. Figure 357 depicts the skeleton of an elephant. Figure 358 depicts (a) the tooth of an Asiatic elephant and (b) the tooth of an African elephant. Figure 359 depicts a section of an elephant's trunk.
Designed to give students an understanding of the animal worlds, Popular Zoology describes and identifies the animals in two kingdoms of nature: the Invertebrates and the Vertebrates. The volume includes copious intaglio printed illustrations of the animals described, as well as a series of charts detailing the systematic arrangement of representative forms. This is one of a series of textbooks written by American educator Joel Dorman Steele (1836-1886), who often worked in collaboration with his wife Esther Baker Steele (1835-1911). Subjects addressed in a similar manner in other volumes include chemistry, human physiology, physics,and astronomy. Popular Zoology was completed posthumously by J. W. P. Jenks (1819-1894), Professor of Agricultural Zoology at Brown University, who is credited as a co-author on the volume.
