THE progress of geological research in every quarter of the globe is exceedingly rapid, and discoveries of new processes of investigation, leading to the opening up of fresh lines of thought in connection with the science, are constantly taking place. Hence, in spite of the acknowledged excellence of some of the existing manuals of geology, such as those of Lyell and Jukes, we cannot but hail with pleasure the appearance of a new text-book of the science—especially of one which, like the present work, is not a mere epitome of one or other of the standard treatises just referred to, but which aims at some originality in its arrangement and mode of treatment of the subject. Prof. Green may be congratulated on having written a work embodying a vast amount of valuable information, which is presented in a very clear and readable form.
