(14) Richard Owen, Memoir on the Pearly Nautilus (London, 1832).
The shells of the pearly nautilus are commonly used by the Visayans for drinking cups.
After I had learned a great many interesting things about the life and habits of the children of the sea--how in the midst of dashing waves the little polyps build the beautiful coral isles of the Pacific, and the foraminifera have made the chalk-hills of many a land--my teacher read me "The Chambered Nautilus," and showed me that the shell-building process of the mollusks is symbolical of the development of the mind.

Captain Nemo and the Nautilus are supreme steam.
That of Nautilus, which would be most important in this inquiry, is unfortunately still unknown.
Owen not only occupied himself with the dissection of rare animals, such as the Pearly Nautilus, Lingula, Limulus, Protopterus, Apteryx, &c., and with the description and reconstruction of extinct reptiles, birds and mammals - following the Cuvierian tradition - but gave precision and currency to the morphological doctrines which had taken their rise in the beginning of the century by the introduction of two terms, " homology " and " analogy," which were defined so as to express two different kinds of agreement in animal structures, which, owing to the want of such " counters of thought," had been hitherto continually confused.
Assuming that these ancestral forms resembled the existing Nautilus in their internal anatomy, they had two pairs of renal ducts and one pair of genital ducts, which would apparently indicate, not a single metamere or unsegmented body, but three metameres.
nautilus yachting offers sailing holidays throughout the Mediterranean, Caribbean and other Tropical destinations.
Another expensive model, the Nautilus, allows you to build and save your own resistance program.
Other types of isotonic exercise include body weight strength training, such as pushups or pull ups, weight machines like Bowflex and Nautilus, and the use of resistance bands.
Westward of and above these strata, the Middle and Upper Jurassic formations are found (Lias, Lower Oolite, Oxfordian, &c.), with well-marked and numerous fossils (Ammonites, Nerinaea, Natica, Astarte, Rhynchonella, Echinodermata, &c.); then the Cretaceous rocks, both these and the Jurassic series being largely developed, the Cretaceous fossils including Nautilus, Belemnites, Ostrea, Gryphaea, &c., and some very large Ammonites (Pachydiscus).
Seashell Votive Holders: This three piece set includes a conch, starfish and nautilus.
In Nautilus two pairs of auricles are present, corresponding with the two pairs of ctenidia.
1, A), and agrees with the method of coiling of a mollusc without lateral torsion, such as Nautilus.
The arteries and veins have proper endothelial walls; they pass abruptly into the sinuses and in some cases communication is effected by orifices in the walls of the vessels, as for example in the vena cava of Nautilus.
P: It's more like a shell, a chambered nautilus with a mother of pearl shell and brown stripes.
nautilus machines for exactly the same reason: they feel safer not having to balance the weight.

In the Coralline Limestone the following fossils have been noted :- Spondylus, Ostrea, Pecten, Cytherea, Arca, Terebratula, Orthis, Clavagella, Echinus, Cidaris, Nucleolites, Brissus, Spatangus; in the Marl the Nautilus zigzag; in the Yellow, Black and Greensand shells of Lenticulites complanatus, teeth and vertebrae of Squalidae and Cetacea; in the Sandstone Vaginula depressa, Crystallaria, Nodosaria, Brissus, Nucleolites, Pecten burdigallensis, Scalaria, Scutella subrotunda, Spatangus, Nautilus, Ostrea navicularis and Pecten cristatus (see Captain Spratt's work and papers by Lord Ducie and Dr Adams).
He made me sit in his armchair, while he brought different interesting things for me to examine, and at his request I recited "The Chambered Nautilus," which was then my favorite poem.
Strength/resistance training equipment includes handheld dumbbells, resistance machines (Nautilus, Cybex), and elastic bands.
As machines such as Universal Gym and Nautilus stepped into the grandstand of the fitness industry, gym owners were seduced by the idea of equipment that isolates specific muscle groups, while restricting other ones.
