DR. TROUESSART, author of a “Catalogue des Mammiféres Vivants et Fossils,” and until recently Curator of the Museum at Angers, has enriched the Bibliothéque Scientifique Contemporaine with a most interesting and valuable book on zoological geography. This work must have caused its author a great amount of labour, to judge from the painstaking way in which he has worked in the facts collected by numerous specialists. Their results, and those of his many predecessors in the fascinating field of the distribution of animals, have been augmented by his own views, and have been condensed into a form which it is agreeable and easy to read.
