Our Mobile Earth


PROF. DALY of Harvard once again has presented in book form matter of geological interest gathered from all parts of the world, and has supplied the desirable connective tissue of theory and speculation. The present work is based upon a course of popular lectures given at the Lowell Institute of Boston. Below the surface, however, it is easy to realise that it has been prepared for the serious student as well as for his lay brother. There is something of the fascination of Lyell's “Principles” in these traveller's tales, each one with its moral; and the suggested references listed chapter by chapter at the end of the volume will be found most useful. The 187 illustrations, too, are excellent; and an author's note invites their reproduction except where covered by previous copyright.
