This is the 1905 Volume 5 of the series that is specific for rabbit development.

Preface

The Normal Plates of the rabbit were originally undertaken by me in 1896, in response to the invitation with which my friend, Professor KEIBEL, the Editor of the Series, honored me. It seemed to me that the rabbit offered particularly favorable opportunities for obtaining stages, which should be really nearly normal, i. e., representative of the median of the variations for each selected age. Accordingly I began collecting litters of embryos of known ages from -nine to twenty-one days, the ages selected being always either even days or half-days. Of each age at least four litters were secured, and of some ages six or seven. The next step was to select for each age by careful comparison of the specimens of that age with one another that litter of embryos which appeared nearest central. Out of this litter three embryos were taken for sectioning as representing the norm for that age. In a few cases the selected embryos were not all from the same litter. Next the selected normal or median embryos of all the ages were compared with one another to make sure that they formed a good progressive series. A typical embryo of each set of three was drawn and thus the series of figures on the plates was prepared. As will be seen the method worked satisfactorily on the whole, though the "normal" embryos of twelve and one half and of thirteen days do not fit perfectly into the series figured.


The three selected embryos of each stage were sectioned, one in the transverse, one in the sagittal and one in the frontal plane. The three series of sections in each case have been added to the Harvard Embryological Collection, where they will be always accessible to competent investigators. The data as to the development of the embryos have been obtained from the study of these series, and similar ones of younger stages. Study soon showed that the three "normal" embryos agree very closely with one another in the details of their development, so that as a rule a correct collective statement as to the condition of each organ could be drawn up with little difficulty so as to be applicable to all three embryos. Exceptions to this rule are not very frequent, and all the important ones observed are noted in the tables.


Of the older stages (nine to twenty days), it may be claimed, I think, that we really have considered “normal” embryos.
