The first part of the course, called “From Dusk to Daylight," consists of nine lectures on the men from Copernicus to Newton inclusive, especially Tycho, Kepler, Galileo, Descartes, and aims at explaining the scientific aspect of their work in a clear and intelligible manner with copious iliustrations. The second part of the course consists of nine lectures on such subjects as the Velocity of Light; Herschel and the Stars; the discoveries of Asteroids and of Neptune; Comets and Meteors; and the Tides; with some biographical details and much scientific exposition addressed to persons of literary education. NEW BOOK BY SIR JOHN LUBBOCK.

The following appen lix has been written upon the same lines as in former editions, save that it has been enlarged, and in reality now constitures a treatise on the chemical substances occurring in the animal buty. As in former editions it is entirely the work o Dr. A. Sheridan Lea. The references given, though extensive, are not intended to be exhaustive. An effort has been made to make the references to recent works as complete as possible, other references are to papers, which them elves give full references, and will there fore serve as a guide to literature of the subject; and some have been inserted in order to inform the student of the dates at which important results were first described."-From the Preface.

THE FIRST VOLUME OF "NATURE'S STORY BOOKS."
Now Ready, Crown 8vo, Cloth, 6s.

SUNSHINE. By AмY JOHNSON, LL.A., formerly Head Mistress of the Royal

Academy, Inverness.

The first of a series of books intended to present some leading scientific principles in such a form as to arouse the interest of children. As far as possible Miss Johnson has drawn her illustrations from common things, and has devised her experiments to suit the simplest apparatus.

SCHOOLMASTER:-"The writer of this book must indeed be a capital teacher, and her lessons should be studied by all who wish to acquire the art of teaching. The book dealing with the phenomena, usually includ d under the head of 'Light,' is quite a storehouse of novel and interesting experiments, and is a 'boon and a blessing.' The experiments can nearly all he carried out by children, are fully described, do not involve the purchase of expensive material, and are in all cases made subservien to the author's purpose, hich is to enable her youthful papils to obtain sound knowledge by appealing to nature herself in as pleasant and as thorough a way as possible. We can heartily congratulate her upon the success her efforts have met with, and can assure our readers that they will certainly find her less ons bright as sunshine.'

This is the very latest improvement, and is
a highly sensitive and compact Instrument.
It is made to hang up, as shown above, its
limensions being only 10 inches x 6 inches,
and fits into a neat mahogany case with glass
front. Its exceedingly low price should re-
commend it to all. It differs from others
inasmuch as the pen traces a dotted curve
instead of a continuous line; this action takes
place every quarter of an hour, and the dots
being very close, form the equivalent to a
continuous line. The price, which includes
small bottle of ink and 55 charts, is £4. 15s.
