THE scope and purpose of this work is sufficiently explained by the following extract from the preface: “There is need for a new publication which would record, in a concise form, and in language easily understood by the non-scientific, but practical, man all the results of scientific work carried out, not only in Britain, but in other parts of the world, so far as it has bearing on agricultural practice at home.” This preface is signed “Devonshire, Chairman Research Committee, Royal Agricultural Society of England.” There follow five compilations by recognised authorities on each subject, dealing specially with research ‘results’ in veterinary medicine, soils and manures, animal nutrition, dairy husbandry, agricultural economics, and agricultural engineering.
