THE present issue of this very useful volume is drawn up on the same lines as those of its immediate predecessor, and its contents are of the usual essence of photographic matter on all topics, which makes it such a valuable aide mémoire to the working photographer. Commencing with the usual calendar, which begins on p. 407, and not on p. 447 (as it is incorrectly indexed, by the way), there follows the useful directory of photographic societies and bodies. An interesting chapter on lens calculations by mental arithmetic, written by the editor, precedes the large section on the epitome of progress by the same authority. This latter portion is always one of the chief contributions to the volume. Then follows a description of the recent novelties in apparatus, which occupies nearly 100 pages. Formulas for the principal photographic processes, the developing formulas of the principal plate and paper makers, miscellaneous information, and the usual large number of valuable chemical, exposure, optical, and other tables, bring the volume to a conclusion.
