(1) READERS of German will remember that Prof. Ostwald published as the first volume of Reclam's series, “Bücher der Naturwissenschaft,” a book which is practically a popular summary of his larger “Vorlesungen iiber Naturphilosophie.” This little work, after special revision by the author, now appears in an American edition. Mr. Seltzer's translation is generally satisfactory, though he has left, here and there, an obscurity of diction which it is difficult to charge to the account of so clear a writer as his original.
