THIS handbook is a new and enlarged edition of the volume dealing with the British Isles of the “Handbuch der regionalen Geologie”, published in Heidelberg about twelve years ago. The general plan of the work is the same as that followed in the German issue with the exception that Ireland is no longer included. The chapter devoted to the geology of the Channel Islands is retained. Seventeen geologists, all authorities on the particular subjects with which they deal, have contributed, and the task of editing the manuscripts must have entailed much labour; but the book makes a notable advance on the earlier volume, and the editors are to be congratulated on the successful completion of their work.
