    FOR full appreciation of this series of essays, personal acquaintance with the soil and scenery of Australia are necessary. Nevertheless, the fundamental principles involved are of such universal application, and the allusions to features within the British Isles so frequent, that the reader who has a taste for open-air geology can be assured of interest in every chapter. Incidentally, attention may be directed to the chapter “The Problem of the Coral Island”, and the discussion of the results of the Funafuti Expedition. Most of the illustrations are excellent, but a few are inconveniently small.
