Dr. Meyer's book is so generally recommended and employed in Germany and France that it is considered the student's text book "par excellence." It has gone through several French and German editions, has been translated into Spanish, Polish, Russian, Italian and Japanese languages. We are indebted to Dr. Fergus for an English translation, which lies before us. Its general arrangement does not differ materially from that usually adhered to by text-book writers. Every subject is discussed in a clear and concise manner. The work is abreast of the times. Its value is enhanced by the truly excellent wood cuts, which greatly assist in elucidating the text. We do not hesitate in prophesying that the hope expressed by the author will be realized, that "the English edition will prove useful, and find tavor with English-speaking confrères and students on both sides of the Atlantic."
