(1) Races bovines


    IN the first of these volumes of the Encyclopedia Prof. Diffloth claims that special attention has been paid to varieties, to methods of selection and to breeding, and the author is to be congratulated on the success of his efforts. The book is a very valuable contribution to our knowledge of domesticated cattle; it treats, with commendable breadth and sufficient detail, not only of the characteristics of a great number of breeds and varieties of those breeds, but of certain of the physical conditions under which they thrive and of their geographical distribution.
