Discours et mélanges

Nature volume 110, page 629 (11 November 1922) | Download Citation



THIS volume contains discourses, short essays, and obituary notices of some distinguished French men of science. It may be warmly recommended, more especially on account of the obituary notices, which do not confine themselves-as is too frequently the case-with an account of the work done, but tell us something of early surroundings, education, and temperament, and thus bring out the personality as well as the results achieved. It is not only that the account gains in interest thereby, but the information allows us to judge more adequately of the individual influence exerted on contemporary science.
