Nature volume 31, pages 228229 | Download Citation



THE lectures given under the auspices of the Paris Geographical Society last spring were so successful, that they are to be resumed this year. The first will be given by M. Janssen, on January 13, on the universal meridian. The others will be, by Prof, de Lapparent, on January 27, on the formation and development of the earth's crust; February 3, M. Bouquet de la Grye, the oceans; February 10, Dr. Hamy, man; March 3, M. Himly, the conquest of the globe; March 10, M. Levasseur, the riches of the globe; March 24, M. Louis Simonin, the great lines of navigation; March 31, M. Michel, railways and their relation to geography. These lectures are not free even to members, the charge for the course to such being fifteen francs, and twenty francs to outsiders. Some of the lectures will be illustrated with projections on the screen, and the success of the enterprise is so assured that a third series has already been arranged for in 1886.
