A New Experimental Science. Part II. By J. G. FREWIN. (Is. 6d. net. Clarendon Press.)
A course on general science on the lines already adopted in many schools in south-east and south-west Scotland. This, the second part, deals with the elementary chemistry and physics of water and with simple magnetism. The scheme is sound, but contains nothing novel, and is somewhat superficial.
Relativity: An Exposition without Mathematics. By Prof. J. RICE. (6d. Benn.)
The Earth, the Sun, and the Moon. By Dr. G. FORBES. (6d. Benn.)
Chemistry. By Dr. P. E. SPIELMANN. (6d. Benn.)
Earlier volumes in this delightful series have already received favourable notice in this Journal. Messrs. Rice, Forbes, and Spielmann have been uniformly successful in maintaining the high standard set them, and no teacher of science can afford to neglect these three inexpensive little books. We feel, however, that the publishers assigned Dr. Spielmann too heavy a task in asking him to write on chemistry" in eighty small pages; it would have been better to choose a particular chemical topic than the science as a whole. Nevertheless, Dr. Spielmann has produced a vigorous and interesting essay, and perhaps a more detailed treatment of special branches of chemistry may come later.
Chemistry. By W. H. BARRETT. (5s. net. Clarendon Press.)
An excellent little book, particularly suitable for those pupils who begin the study of chemistry rather later than usual. would not be adapted to School Certificate sets, but may be strongly recommended for general science classes, or for purposes of revision and consolidation of previous knowledge during the first term or two of post-certificate work. The treatment is characteristically deft and fresh, the outlook modern and the chemistry up-to-date.
A Course of Volumetric Work: For Day and Evening Students of Pure and Applied Chemistry. By E. CLARK. (4s. 6d. net. Pitman.)
This book, which is based upon a course in use at the Royal Technical College, Salford, appears to be very suitable for Higher Certificate and Intermediate B.Sc. candidates. The selection of experiments is good, the instructions are clear and concise, and the principles of the various operations are adequately explained. We are glad to see that Mr. Clark recommends Knop's method for the estimation of iron (using diphenylamine as internal indicator); we agree entirely with his statement that this method is accurate and convenient and in every way preferable to the orthodox [ferricyanide] 'spot' method."
Essays of a Naturalist: a Selection from the Works of Sir Ray Lankester. (Is. 6d. Methuen.)
The publishers are greatly to be congratulated on producing this delightful collection of sixteen essays at a price that places it within the reach of every purse. As is to be expected in the essays of a great zoologist about one third of these deal with animals dragons, seals, toads, the grub within the jumping bean, eels, boring animals, and sandhoppers. But" Naturalist is here to be understood in its true and wider sense, for Sir Ray Lankester tells also of volcanoes, comets, glaciers, laughter, sea-beaches, quicksands, amber, and tobacco, and always with the light and accurate touch of the expert. We can scarcely imagine a book better calculated to awaken interest in readers, young and old, or to form a palatable introduction to the subject matter and methods of natural science.
Black's Elementary Science Note Books. Book III: a Course of Experiments on Plant Growth and the Soil in Relation to Foodstuffs. By G. N. PINGRIFF. (Is. 6d. Black.)
Mr. Pingriff has here produced an excellent experimental course. It would make an appropriate sequel, lasting one or two terms according to the number of periods available per week, to the Nature Study of junior forms.
Economic Biology for Students of Social Science. By Dr.
PHILIPPA C. ESDAILE. Part I. Harmful and Useful Animals. (7s. 6d. net. University of London Press.) Domestic perhaps better than "Economic connotes the range of this Biology." Arranged systematically, from Protozoa to the subdivisions of Arthropoda, the animals which prey as parasites on man, or which damage his household property are described, their life-histories stated, and combative measures recommended. A few of the more familiar useful lower animals are similarly treated.
The Structure and Development of the Fungi. By Prof. H. C. I. GWYNNE-VAUGHAN and B. BARNES. (15s. net. Cambridge University Press.)
Advanced students will find this text-book most valuable. It includes the whole of the Fungi, and is copiously illustrated. The information given under the heading of Mycological Technique" is of immense assistance both to teachers and learners. A bibliography extending over thirty pages is appended for those who wish to consult original authorities. Every botanical laboratory should possess at least one copy of this book.
A Bird Book for the Pocket: Treating of all the Regular British Species, with Coloured Plates to scale and an Illustrated Chapter on Eggs. By E. SANDERS. (7s. 6d. net. Oxford University Press.)
This handy book should prove useful to those who wish to identify birds ' in the field." The species are conveniently grouped, chiefly according to size, into two main sections "and Small birds Large birds." The condensed but accurate descriptive text faces the coloured picture of the bird to which it applies. The rather impressionist illustrations successfully bring out the diagnostic features of each species; while the chapter on eggs, though lacking finality in identification, is distinctly helpful.

A ZOOLOGICAL FILM.-The Polytechnic Theatre, Regent Street, W. 1, which has been entirely rebuilt, has been reopened under new and special arrangements with the Governors of the Polytechnic, and the wonderful film " Chang," which is arousing interest throughout the country, is being shown. This film is of great value as a study in zoological knowledge, and at the same time, it embodies a story, not with the Nabobs of Hollywood playing the principal parts, but simple folk living their natural lives amongst natural surroundings, and depicting in drama, comedy, and pathos, the eternal struggle of man against primitive nature.

The Little One's Log: Baby's Record. By EVA ERLEIGH. (7s. 6d. net. Partridge.)
This is intended primarily as a frame-work in which the mother may keep a record of her child from the time of its birth up to the seventh year, and the main object of the book is to suggest the form which such a record may usefully take. In the foreword Dr. Eric Pritchard notes that the diagnosis and treatment of children in illness are greatly facilitated by accurate knowledge of their previous health and physical development, such as would be supplied by a document of this kind. Small accidents, such as a fall, or a period of restlessnes or of nightfears may prove invaluable later in throwing light upon some physical or mental disturbance, but are apt to be forgotten unless carefully noted at the time. Most of the illustrations are quaint and amusing, as, for instance, that facing page 48.

374 Pages. 33rd Edition.
Price 3/6. 100 Exercises. 350 Questions.
The ONLY TEXT-BOOK to which there is a FULL KEY.
While this text-book more than covers all Elementary Examinations in this subject, its special design is to meet the requirements of the excellent Syllabuses issued by the Royal Society of Arts, the College of Preceptors, Oxford and Cambridge Locals, the London Chamber of Commerce, and the National Union of Teachers.
The exercises and the principles introduced therein are so carefully graded in point of difficulty that the student is trained to work the most difficult set of transactions without being appalled at any stage of his study. No exercise is too long or too complicated to be completed between each lesson. questions will be found very useful for testing the student's knowledge at each stage of his work. Examination Papers of the Royal Society of Arts, the College of Preceptors, the Oxford and Cambridge Locals, and the L.C.C. are included. 500,000 copies sold.
This is the only practical up-to-date book on Commercial Correspondence and the Theory and Practice of Commerce, and is characterized by the same qualities that have made the author's other text-books so popular. The lessons are well graduated and the teacher is saved the drudgery of preparing Test Papers, one of which follows every chapter, in addition to numerous Examination Papers. PRACTICAL Work is provided in the Series of Business Transactions included in some of the Test Papers. It is the only Complete Guide, covering all the Public Examinations. Small-priced books may be had on the subject, but as they do not cover the Syllabuses they are dear at a gift. Efficiency should be the first consideration. It is an excellent Handbook for the Junior in the Office. 100,000 copies sold.
