This is a First Edition of the work, in original publisher's cloth binding with gilt motif to the front cover.

In particular, Pennington introduces the Hydroida, the Actinozoa and Polyzoa forms of Zoophyte.
Pennington's aim with this work was to provide a handy and reliable manual for British Zoophytes to present to the next generation of students of Natural History.
