Vocabulaire Forestier: Franais—Allemand—Anglais

Nature volume 88, page 311 (04 January 1912) | Download Citation



THIS is the fifth edition of a dictionary in French, German, and English of the technical terms which are usually met with in books on forestry in those languages. Compiled by Dr. Gerschel, late pro lessor at the Nancy Forest School, the present edition was revised by the late Prof. W. R. Fisher, of Oxford, shortly before his death, and is now issued by the Clarendon Press. The book contains 192 closely printed pages, and is very useful, as it not only includes the technical terms peculiar to the art of forestry, but also most of the common terms of the sciences of botany, zoology, and geology, and, in addition, words pertaining to hunting and shooting. The German and French parts appear to be well done; but the English part requires to be thoroughly revised, as it contains many curious errors and omissions.
