WE are glad to be able to extend a welcome once more to this valuable handbook, which has now reached its fortieth anniversary. The publishers are to be congratulated on the courage and persistence with which they have issued year by year a volume so useful to all who would keep in touch with scientific developments and at the same time a book necessarily of limited circulation. The volume is divided into the customary fourteen sections, in each of which related societies are grouped. The classification this implies is a difficult problem, but we have little fault to find with the present arrangement; the Institute of Physics would appear more appropriately in the section given to astronomy, mathematics, and physics than in its present place under “Science Generally.” The very full index, however, will generally obviate any difficulty which may arise in this way.
