Nature volume 36, page 364 | Download Citation



IT is impossible to give in a small volume of some sixty pages a clear description of the microscope and the wonders it reveals. Still the author has managed to make his little essays interesting; and if there is not much depth in his work, he has perhaps written enough to induce some of those who are not already the possessors of a microscope to get one. It is surprising that he has not laid more stress on the advantages of a binocular over a monocular instrument.
