The first edition of this work was reviewed in The Journal, Aug. 20, 1910, when mention was made of the great mass of facts collected by the author and the difficulty which the reader would experience in getting systematic instruction from the material presented. The comprehensive and detailed character of the work enhances the difficulty of bringing it fully up to date.
