    INTRODUCTORY text-books on Physical Geography are not numerous, and if we may judge by the calls for new editions, this one is growing in favour. It certainly gives in a short and handy form the most important facts of the subject—and in the descriptive part it is merely a question of the selection of the most important, and in this respect we think the selection judicious, as indeed it would appear to have been found. Dr. Page comes to Physical Geography from the side of Geology, and his readers reap the benefit of it, in the chapters relating to the structure of the earth, and to the work of rivers, and to the positions of mountain ranges, which are very good. In many other respects too, the book is worthy of the support it receives, the facts being told clearly, concisely, and for the most part truly.
