Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Our Face From Fish to Man: A Portrait Gallery of Our Ancient Ancestors and Kinsfolk Together With a Concise History of Our Best Features A foreword to a volume such as the present one of Dr. Gregory s is as super?uous as would be the retention of the third eye, the Cyclopean one, of our ancestors, in the center of our forehead today. No more wonderful subject for a volume could be imagined than the evolution of the human face, and no more competent author than William K. Gregory. The result seems to me eminently satisfactory. If the reader s interest is real but cursory, let him do nothing but look at the illustrations. They will ensure a thousand percent interest to every walk along Fifth Avenue or Regent Street. If pressure of other interests permits only an hour s perusal, or complete lack of natural history know ledge requires facts to be strained through the mesh of popular language, read but the preface and the first few paragraphs of each chapter.
