    THERE is no need to set out here the merits of Sir Arthur Schuster's book on optics, and in describing the new edition, in which he has had the collaboration of Dr. J. W. Nicholson, we may confine ourselves to the novelties that have been introduced. These include descriptions of some of the newer optical instruments and processes, among them an excellent account of Michelson's method of measuring stellar diameters.

    By Sir Arthur Schuster. Third edition, revised and enlarged by the Author and Prof. John William Nicholson. Pp. xv + 397. (London: E. Arnold and Co., 1924.) 18s. net.
