The vessels of the head and neck of this specimen were immediately injected so that the relations of the blood vessels of the skull to those of the antler and the velvet could be traced. Through the medium of my friend, Mr. O. E. Philippi, several fine heads were. Obtained, presenting the sprouting antler in various stages of growth. These comprised specimens of the Red Deer from Gaick Forest sent by Mr. Hargreaves and specimens of Fallow Dear sent by Lord Devon. The Duke of Richmond and Gordon gave permission to examine the great and beautiful collection of deer skulls and antlers at Gordon Castle and also to photograph any specimens of service. Several of these showing the result of injury to the pedicle and its effect upon the antler were photographed and appear in this volume. My friend, Mr. Henry Evans of J ura, was good enough to give me numerous examples of the Cromie antlers, two of which are here illustrated.
