REGIONAL survey, as an exercise in concrete geographical study, was introduced into university education in Great Britain by the late Prof. A. J. Herbertson under the inspiration of Prof. P. Geddes. The methods since then have been utilised in most of the schools of geography in Great Britain, and a great deal of work has been accomplished, though relatively little has been published, largely for lack of means. The authors of this small volume are enthusiasts and have themselves done good work in regional survey. They set out here to explain some of the methods of field work and mapping. Their aim is practical guidance, and even if they explain a good deal that will be obvious to any student of geography, they have written a useful handbook for which there is a real need. There are several sketch maps and diagrams.
