THIS handy republication of the lighter scientific utterances of Lord Kelvin was begun in 1889, with the volume reviewed in NATURE (vol. xl. p. 433), was continued in 1891, with a volume on “Navigational Affairs,” and is now concluded for the present by a volume, nominally the second of the series, which deals mainly with Geological Dynamics, or the application of the physical sciences to the past history of our planet, and likewise includes such later addresses on general physical topics as were not included in the volumes already issued.

Popular Lectures and Addresses by Sir William Thomson (Baron Kelvin), P.R.S., LL.D., D.C.L., &c.

In three volumes. Vol. II. "Geology and General Physics." With illustrations. NATURE Series, pp. x. + 599, with index. (London and New York: Macmillan and Co., 1894.)
