Four books on electricity are before us. The first of these, which is intended for the general reader, is incomplete, although already filling three volumes, being the first part and the first division (or a portion of it) of the second part of R. Millineux Walmsley's 'Modern Practical Electricity.' It is an English book, referring to instruments used in England, and is printed there, though issued by W. T. Keener & Co. of Chicago. It carries no date; nor is there any intimation that it is a second edition of a ten-year-old book. Nor is there any statement as to the number of volumes still to come. On a hasty examination, one might suppose it to be complete. It really has a good deal of merit as being such an account as any intelligent person can understand of those effects of electricity which may come into the experience of non-electricians. We cannot recommend it until we know when it is to be completed. The 'Elementary Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism,' of G. Carey Foster and Alfred W. Porter, is also a second edition; but as it is published by Longmans, Green & Co., we may be sure there is no occasion to cry Caveat emptor. It has been extensively revised, yet is hardly so good as an entirely new book might have been. It is a text-book that avoids the calculus.

'Elements of Electromagnetic Theory,' by S. J. Barnett (Macmillan), is a profound and meritorious mathematical work. The author has "tried to present in systematic and definite form a simple, rigorous, and thoroughly modern introduction to the fundamental principles of the subject." He does not seem to us to have succeeded in making the subject quite as perspicuous as he might have made it, nor everywhere to be clearly rigorous; yet he has produced a valuable work. Mr. G. D. Aspinall Parr's 'Electrical Engineering Measuring Instruments' (Van Nostrand Co.) is a good technical book concerning instruments generally in use in England.

To one whose chief enjoyment of books is in reading them, who hates an edition de luxe, or any beauty of type or paper that may adorn a parlor table but incommodes a reader, and for whom, in the case of illustrations in which the artistic element is not the predominant consideration, nothing every way more satisfactory has been invented than good process reproductions of photographs, the dress of this
