[Book Reviews]



    THIS is a revised and considerably extended edition, and the author has paid special attention to points in connection with which difficulties had been found. Among the more important additions are the results of some of M. Amagat's splendid and hitherto unpublished work relating to the compression of liquids exposed to enormous pressures. This in itself, when completed, will, as the author remarks, “form a singularly interesting and practically new branch of the subject.”

    Properties of Matter.

    By P. G. Tait. Second Edition. (London: Adam and Charles Black, 1890.)
