THE Central Meteorological Office of Italy (the Collegio Romano) has just issued the third part of a most useful serie, forming one volume of 282 pp., imperial 8vo. (Imprimerie Héritiers Botta, Rome, 1879), which will be of great service to meteorologists generally. They contain a translation, in French, of all the Reports (in extenso or abridged) prepared upon the different questions comprised in the Programme of the Second International Meteorological Congress held at Rome in April of this year, together with many other papers communicated to the Congress. The work has been undertaken with the view of presenting to meteorologists, not only the whole of the questions which have been discussed by the Congress, but also the ensemble of the experiments and documents which have formed, so to speak, the basis of each discussion, and which represent, at the same time, the opinion of the distinguished men from the whole of Europe upon the most important points of international meteorology. The translation has been carried out under the able superintendence of Prof. Guido Gras i, director of the Roman Central Office, and we congratulate that office upon the careful translation of the reports from the various languages and upon their speedy issue in one convenient volume.
