THIS handy volume on the measurement of temperature maintains the high standard we have been led to expect in the Collection Armand Colin. Prof. Ribaud has had wide experience of the subject both in Strasbourg and in Paris, and his larger volume “Traite de Pyrometrie Optique” is an authoritative account of one single branch. The amount of information contained in this smaller book is remarkable, and the presentation is admirable. The international temperature scale is adopted as standard, and the various methods of measuring high temperatures receive special attention. At the moderate price charged, the volume ought to be in the possession of all concerned in this important practical problem.
