The Climate of the Continent of Africa

Nature volume 88, pages 305306 (04 January 1912) | Download Citation



SUCH a work as this has not only become highly necessary, but should be in great demand amongst Governments, mining and commercial companies trading in Africa, missionary societies, and all individuals who intend to visit Africa for any length of time, or to settle in any part of that continent for purposes of health, science, education, or commercial gain. It is to be regretted therefore that the book on its first appearance should contain some needless errors and be chargeable with not a few omissions. And in the hope that some indication of these may be of use in the preparation of a second edition, it may not be thought ungracious on the part of the reviewer to point them out.
