THIS valuable work forms Appendix No. 16 to the 1887 Report of the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey, and is another example of the disinterested energy displayed by our Transatlantic cousins in scientific matters. With great perseverance, and at the cost of much time and trouble, Mr. Gore personally explored thirty-four of the principal libraries of America and Europe, and numerous minor libraries by proxy; and, in addition, he checked and completed many of his references by correspondence with the living authors of both continents. The extent of his labours is shown by the four hundred columns of references, and short remarks where the title alone is not sufficiently explanatory. An alphabetical arrangement is adopted, and this includes authors, abbreviations, and subjects.
A Bibliography of Geodesy.
