THIS well-known text-book has been extensively revised, and reset in larger type. The changes which have been made include the insertion of an account of the Hall and allied effects, and the omission of the description of the magnetization of ships. The sections on atomic phenomena have been extended considerably, and now provide a good introduction to this relatively new work. The book, which covers rather more than is needed for a pass degree in physics and provides a sound framework for an honours course, remains probably the best treatise of its kind in English on experimental electricity.
