THIS little volume is to all intents and purposes a charming and eloquent appeal in support of the claims of women to effectual recognition in the scientific world. In reality it purposes only to give in brief outline the lives of half a dozen women who have rendered important service to mathematical science. But although brief the sketches are so clever that the various characters depicted could scarcely appear more living or real, whilst there is not a single dull sentence to be found in the book.
