THE Abbé Moreux has essayed, in the volume under notice, the ambitious task of giving a complete explanation of the origin of all the orbs in the solar system. Works on cosmogony have this advantage that no one can positively assert that any particular system is wrong, since certainty is quite unattainable. Hence a reviewer is not called upon to pronounce a theory of cosmogony right or wrong, but merely to note how far it appears to fit in with known facts.

Origine et Formation des Mondes.

Par l'Abbé Th. Moreux. Pp. xii + 401. (Paris: Gaston Doin, 1922.) n.p.
