Prejevalsky's Mongolia

Nature volume 14, pages 35 | Download Citation



WE have had occasion once or twice to refer briefly to Col. Prejevalsky's travels in Eastern High Asia, and some of our readers may have seen more or less detailed notices of his journey in the German and English geographical journals. These have been sufficient to show that the narrative of the Russian officer is of unusual value, and we are therefore thankful that not much time has been lost in making it accessible to the English public, to which Russian is practically an unknown tongue. The two volumes before us, however contain only Col. Prejevalsky's general account of his expedition; and we regret that there seems to be no intention of making the special scientific results accessible to English readers. Judging from what is contained in the two volumes before us, these must be of the highest importance, and we hope that by some means they will be made known to English men of science.
