(1) Mr. Houston's volume, attractively produced and excellently printed, cannot fail to arouse interest in local mineralogy. A preface is given on the geology of Renfrewshire, aiad we are reminded of the famous specimens of pr-ehnite and analcite. from the Boylestone Quarry, nar Barrhead. New analses are given of several minerals, including phosphatic nodules (p. 72) from three localities, and a greenish kaolin (p. 71). The name “lithomarge” is misprinted in three places, and we do not like the term “carbonated” on p. 78 in place of “carbonised.” But considerable care has evidently been given to the book, which serves as a model for the work of local naturalists.
