Article metrics

Abstract

AFTER wandering in the desert for considerably more than forty years, the English student of crystallography is at length brought within sight of the promised land; it is true that guides have been offered to him in the interval, but they have spoken in strange tongues, and have sometimes been mere dust-clouds of unnecessary formulæ and notations, calculated rather to bewilder than to lead.

Crystallography, a Treatise on the Morphology of Crystals.

By N. Story-Maskelyne, Professor of Mineralogy, Oxford. 521 pp. and xii. pp., 398 figures, 8 plates, 8vo. (Clarendon Press, 1895.)
