[Book Reviews]


    MISS MARTINEAU describes clearly a number of simple scientific facts, mainly concerning natural history subjects. She thus assists the extension of a knowledge of nature among those who are greatly in need of it. The prominence given to Darwin's teachings—a large part of the book being taken up with the elementary principles of evolution—is a very commendable characteristic. The spiritual lessons to be learnt from natural phenomena may be “skipped” by readers who prefer to deal wttlf ethics apart from natural science.
