THE series of distinctive yellow-backed volumes published under the general title of “Struktur und Eigenschaften der Materie” have long been known to physicists and physical chemists. The volumes are written by a series of distinguished specialists, and are valuable for their clarity and detailed reference to original papers. The subject of spectroscopy has been well represented in earlier volumes by the work of Stuart, Sponer, Back, Matossi, and Hund. Of the two volumes under review, that of Finkelnburg is an entirely new contribution, that of Kohlrausch being a volume supplementary to vol. 12 of the series. These books reflect, in fact, two important aspects of present-day spectroscopy.
