THIS is a very thorough work, and one admirably adapted for the use of physical students: indeed, we think so well of it that we would recommend it for use in all schools and establishments where the subjects of which it treats are taught. There is a great amount of matter, tersely put and aptly illustrated by copious worked-out examples, and, in addition, there is good store of exercises to try the pupil's strength. Answers are appended, and a useful index crowns all.
