    DR. YOUNG in his preface to this book explains that it was written to meet the needs of first-year students at Aberystwyth, many of whom arrived entirely ignorant of trigonometry, while others were proposing to take mathematical honours. Only the university authorities can judge of the success with which this staggering problem has been solved, but Mr. Walmsley has evidently been more concerned with the latter class than with the former, and his work will probably be useful chiefly as an introduction to Hardy's “Pure Mathematics.”
