Management of Accumulators, and Private Electric Light Installations. By Sir David Salomons. Third edition, revised and enlarged. New York: D. Van Nostrand. Pp. 150.

This little book is the result of the author's long experience with electric lighting, which was preceded by the use of a private gas-making plant on his own estate. lie has used secondary batteries since they first became practicable, sparing no expense to obtain satisfactory results, and feels confident that his directions will make the seeking of professional advice rarely necessary.
