The fact that a fifth edition of this excellent manual has been called for within two years of the publication of the fourth, is sufficient to confirm the value value of the work. Indeed, it has been so frequently reviewed and has become such a standard text-book, that any extended comment at this time is needless.

The present edition differs mainly from the former in the incorporation of the added knowledge upon this subject in the last two years, and the use of accent marks upon the systematic names of plants and animals. Several illustrations have been added, partly replacing others, further eludicating structural peculiarities.

We cannot let the occasion pass without commending the superior quality of press work shown in this volume. The wood-cuts show with surprising clearness.
