Glimpses of Nature

Nature volume 44, page 174 | Download Citation



MR. WILSON does not profess to present in this book anything strictly new, or to give a full account of the varioas subjects with which he deals. Nevertheless, the volume may be of considerable value, for on all the groups of facts in which he is interested he is able to discourse brightly and pleasantly, and many of his short papers are well calculated to excite in the minds of intelligent readers a desire for more ample knowledge. The papers are reprinted from the Illustrated London News.
