    IN the course of twenty-two years, since its first appearance, Prof. Lea's work has passed through five editions, with intermediate reprints—a fact which eloquently speaks for the popularity and acceptability of the volume to students of the subject. It has grown considerably in bulk since the present writer reviewed it in NATURE in 1908, and now numbers nearly 800 pages. Designed to cover the vast field of engineering practice comprised in the modern science of hydraulics, the expansion is scarcely to be wondered at? and, indeed, in turning over the leaves, one does not find that there is any inclusion of inappropriate material or pleonasm of treatment.
