Elements of Forestry


    MOON and Brown's “Elements of Forestry” has had a wide popularity in the United States. First published in 1914, a second edition was issued in 1924, and now a revised and corrected third printing. In this latter, the entire text has been revised and corrected, particularly with reference to up-to-date statistics, new facts made available or recently determined, and in other ways the text has been brought up-to-date. The authors state that they “have purposely left out many statistics and figures, such as prices, which change from time to time ”. In a book presumably used as a. text-book this is a wise decision, which the authors' experience since the first publication of the book will have shown desirable.
