THE few who have access to the Transaclions of the Royal Society, and who remember the first presentation of Prof. Worthington's beautiful photographs illustrating the successive movements that occur in the phenomenon of the splash of a drop, and some proportion of the many who may have seen his two articles on the subject in Pearson's Magazine, will welcome the appearance of the fascinating quarto volume entitled “A Study of Splashes.” Not only will their recollection of an interesting research be revived, but the more perfectly executed and more numerous and complete series of photographs here presented will show the phenomena in all their original beauty as displayed on the lantern screens at the Royal Institution and elsewhere.
"A Study of Splashes". By Prof. A. M. Worthington, C.B., F.R.S. Pp. xii+129; illustrated. (London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1908.) Price 6s. 6d. net.
