MONSIEUR DAUBRÉE has, during the last thirty years, published numerous very important memoirs, describing the production, upon a small scale in the laboratory, of various natural geological phenomena. These papers, which were originally scattered through the pages of different scientific journals, are now for the first time brought together. The first part of this work, under the title of “Application of Experimental Methods to the Study of Various Geological Phenomena,” forms a handsome and well-illustrated volume of nearly five hundred pages. This is to be followed by a second part, to be entitled “Application of Experimental Methods to Various Cosmological Phenomena,” which will describe investigations recently made on the constitution and characteristics of meteorites.
