    Abstract

    IN this book Mr. Black offers some essays which might well be of value to the student of physiography. Treatises on this subject are usually crammed very full of facts, and more interest might be awakened and a wider horizon opened to the student, if he reads such a work as this in connection with the ordinary text-books. There are ten essays altogether; four deal with some points connected with our own atmosphere, and four discuss problems of elementary astronomy, arising mainly from the motion of the earth on its axis. The remaining two treat of the Sargasso Sea and the Zodiacal Light with its allied phenomena. These seem to be highways rather than by-paths.

    Natural Phenomena. A Collection of Descriptive and Speculative Essays on some of the By-paths of Nature.

    By F. A. Black. Pp. xiv + 366. (London and Edinburgh: Gall and Inglis, n.d.)
