    Article metrics


    IN taking up such a book as that of Dr. Knott's, one cannot help feeling that the attempt to treat such a subject as physics within the limits of a book of between three and four hundred pages, must be attended with extreme difficulty. When, on further perusal, we notice that this work contains references to such subjects as contours, determination of the mean density of the earth, the theory of the formation of mirages both erect and in verted—to mention only a few of those matters which the elementary text-book usually leaves out of consider ation-we are struck with amazement.
