SCIENTIFIC LITERATURE.

of the Cambridge Natural Science Manuals to reach us, Prof. R. T. Glazebrook has embodied the results of his experience as a teacher both in the laboratory and its adjunct, the lecture room. The first portion of the book deals with dynamics, the second with statics, and the third and last with hydrostatics—two hundred and eight pages in all. Each physical law is illustrated by means of simple apparatus and experiments, and examples are scattered through the text for testing the student's grasp of each principle. The book is well printed and bound; illustrations are used where necessary; and although the work is by no means a complete treatise, it seems thoroughly good as far as it goes, and well suited to the needs of elementary students (Macmillan, $2.25).
