The Anthropological Review. No. 1. (Triibner and Co.)—The Anthropological Society

is the most recent of the scientific associations of London, its first meeting having been held little more than three months ago. The object of its studies is, we are informed by its presidv.t:t, Dr. Hunt, "the science of the whole nature of man," and pologists "have to deal with the origin and development of anity."

Tho publication now before us is the recognized organ of the new association, and is designed not only to contain the official record of the proceedings of the society, but also be "a repository of facts, an arena of discussion, and a medium of communication between anthropologists and travellers all over the world." The first number contains, besides the president's inaugural address, which is less remarkable for the elegance of its expression than for the scientific candour of its tone, several miscellaneous papers, the most interesting of which is an account of a visit to the Fan tribe, con- tributed by Captain Burton, the well-known African traveller. ant h
