The Journal (Sept. 16, 1911, p. 1004) contained a review of the German edition of this admirable text-book and we are glad to read the first instalment (about one-third) of its translation into the English language. On the whole what was said of the original work holds true of the American edition; indeed, in some respects there is a distinct improvement noticeable in Dr. Foster's adaptation of the German text, especially in his avoidance of a number of errors that seem to have eluded the eye of the author. Although the illustrations are of the same inferior order of the original edition, the subject-matter is so excellent that one may easily overlook minor defects, especially as the binding, print and paper are excellent.
