American Resorts, with Notes upon their Climate

    Abstract

    WHOEVER imagines, from the imposing exterior of this volume, that he will find much information within its covers on American health-resorts, is doomed to disappointment. In most cases he will be as well or better off if he consults a good gazetteer or geographical dictionary. It is true it contains a translation of some chapters of Dr. Woeikof's “Die Klimate der Erde”; indeed, this forms more than one-third of the volume—a singular method of producing an “original” work.
