Kunstformen der Natur (1904) by Ernst Haeckel

"Outside a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside a dog, it's too dark to read" is a dictum attributed to Groucho Marx.

This may be original with Groucho, but the Quote Investigator[1] mentions the earliest report found in a 1958 issue of Boy's Life magazine where it is attributed to Jim Brewer.
