THESE two volumes of newly compiled tables of physical and chemical constants cover very much the same ground, though differing greatly in many respects. The larger volume of 318 pages is a revised edition of the famous Smithsonian tables, bearing on the title-page the name of Mr. F. E. Fowle, of the Astrophysical Observatory, as its compiler. It is issued as an official publication of the Smithsonian Institution. The smaller tables of Dr. Kaye and Prof. Laby are the first issue of an entirely new work by private individuals.
