Annual Record of Science and Industry for1874 The Year-book of Facts in Science and the Arts for 1874

    Abstract

    THE American “Annual Record of Science,” is a work that each year grows in interest and value. It now consists of two distinctive parts (1), an historical summary of the progress of various branches of science and industry during the past year; and (2), classified groups of paragraphs, giving a succinct report of noteworthy occurrences or special scientific investigations. At the end of the volume is a catalogue of scientific books published during the year, and also a capital index to the whole work. The summary of progress has grown from sixteen pages in 1871, when this Annual first appeared, to 200 pages in the present volume. Each department of science is separately treated, and in the preparation of the different parts the editor has had the co-operation of numerous eminent men of science. Evidently no pains have been spared to make the Record as complete as possible, and so far as we are competent to judge, it is as accurate as it is comprehensive.
