    THIS addition to the physical series of the Cambridge Natural Science Manuals will hardly add to the reputation of the assistant director of the Cavendish Laboratory. The only noteworthy feature is the prominence given to the experimental verification of statical principles; but excepting this, little can be found to distinguish the book from others of a similar type. Many of the experiments described are intended to be performed by the students, and the theoretical consequences are, when possible, deduced from experiments. This is undoubtedly the right line to go upon, but we are afraid that few of our schools or colleges possess at present sufficient apparatus for the laboratory work described. The text is clear and concise, and sufficiently illustrated; and the examples are numerous.
