    PROF. BRATUN has based this small text-book of physical geography on the well-known volume of Prof. W. M. Davis which first appeared in 1889 and afterwards was translated into German. The work has undergone thorough revision, which entailed rewriting several of the sections, including those on weather and climate. It covers the whole groundwork of the subject, including the distribution of vegetation. Some of the original illustrations remain, but many are new or derived from various sources, and their excellence is one of the best features of the book. Particular attention has been paid to reference to original sources and each section has copious reference to books and papers. A glossary of English and German technical terms is a useful addition. The book should prove of great value to students, and fully equals any work of the same standard now available in English.
