    Abstract

    (1) THE subject covered by this book is a very extensive one, and the author is to be congratulated on the fact that by judicious compression, without sacrifice of clearness, he has in a volume of only 550 pages covered ground to which usually two or three bulky text-books are devoted. No student can expect, however, to make himself master of the contents of the book unless, as the author himself suggests in his preface, he works conscientiously through the sets of carefully thought-out problems which are given at the end of each chapter. At the end of the first, or introductory, chapter, Prof. Low has given a fairly complete bibliography for the subject, confining himself to works in the English language which have appeared during the last decade, or to those works which have been brought up to date by new and revised editions; this list will be found of considerable use by students who desire to extend their reading in any one branch of the subject.
