Grove, A. J. and Newell, G. E. (1961)
Sixth edition, reprint 1962
University Tutorial Press
This was the textbook used for A-level Zoology during the years 1962 to 1964 although
this may not have been the edition used. The content and illustrations seem right,
but I’m not familiar with the organisation of the material in this book so I
think we may have used the fifth edition published in 1957 prior to the rearrangement
of material that was undertaken for the sixth edition.
Dai cube used this book as he did Lowson’s Botany, with extensive extra dictation
and diagrams. It has some very good hand-drawn illustrations, eg
turbellarian. (I remember having to stain one of these creatures and mount it
on a microscope slide under a coverslip to see if we could observe the parts illustrated
in the book. Unfortunately my specimen got squashed to a pulp due to carelessness
so I think I used Keith Eynon’s or Philip Moore’s instead.
We were also expected to learn the structure and names of all the parts of all the
of the crayfish, and the structure of all the
of the rabbit!

1960s which includes his hand-drawn pictures of some of the features mentioned above.
