    Among other places of interest to the visitor to Naples, points out the 'celebrated Aquarium of Naples' which 'belongs to the Zoological Station, and was established by the German naturalist Dr. Dohrn for the purpose of facilitating a thorough scientific investigation of the animal and vegetable world of the Mediterranean'. Adds that the 'greater part of the expense was borne by Dr. Dohrn himself, but the German government has repeatedly contributed large subsidies', while 'Several prominent English naturalists have also presented the institution with important sums'.
