YEAR by year this invaluable publication appears with commendable regularity, and year by year its bulk steadily increases, the bulk of the present issue being nearly double that of its predecessor of forty years ago. Hitherto the subscribers have yearly obtained more for their money, but there are limits beyond which even the generosity of a great scientific society cannot go, and it has consequently been decided, although with reluctance, that in future the price of the annual volume must be increased. The bulk of the present volume has been somewhat diminished by printing it on thinner paper than its predecessors; and, although this innovation may have been unavoidable in order to bring the weight within the limits laid down by the Post Office for transmission abroad, it cannot be said to be altogether an improvement, as in places the type shows through in a decidedly obtrusive manner.
