The Story of the British Race

Nature volume 60, page 52 | Download Citation



SOME time ago Mr. Munro wrote “The Story of Electricity” for this library of useful stories. In this volume he transfers his attentions to the science of anthropology, and expresses in his preface the hope that his book will “tend to destroy some errors regarding the origin and pedigree of the nation which have infected life and literature for ages.” The volume should be the means of creating an interest in the study of mankind, in addition to imparting a knowledge of the nature of the races in the British Islands.
