IT is with feelings of great disappointment that we lay down the latest book on Telegraphy. In a work professedly a text-book of science, one of the series that contains Clerk Maxwell's Heat, Jenkin's Electricity, Good-eve's Mechanism, and the books of Bloxam and of Miller, we certainly were not prepared to find the part of science consistently left out. We considered, in fact, that when two authors, high in their profession, undertook to supplement a recognised want in so distinguished a series of text-books, we might expect to receive from them the best and the newest information obtainable on the subject that they profess to deal with.
