    (1) THAT the Rutherford-Bohr atomic model, despite its remarkable success in explaining and correlating so many of the facts of physical and chemical science, is not yet universally accepted, is evident from a study of the first of these three books, the title of which will probably lead many who are unfamiliar with Dr. Crehore's writings to expect something quite different from what they will find. The book is really an account of the progress of the author's own particular atomic theory. Although we fancy that it will win few converts to his views, it is, nevertheless, not without interest.
