    MANY are the treatises which deal with the subject of elementary statics, but few can rival in clearness the present stereotyped edition of Mr. Lock's work. The alterations that have been made have not necessitated any considerable change in the character of the book. By the addition of some fully worked out illustrated problems, and of a carefully graduated set of interesting examples for the student to solve, the author has slightly enlarged the scope of the treatise. The number of the miscellaneous examples at the end have been greatly increased by the insertion of problems that have appeared in the Cambridge examinations in the last two or three years. The subject throughout is treated in the author's best style, and the book can be cordially recommended for the use of beginners.

    Elementary Statics.

    By the Rev. J. B. Lock (London: Macmillan and Co., 1890.)
