Animal Physiology. By W. S. Furneaux. (Longmans and Co.) —Mr.

Furneaux is quite right to describe the desire for copious illustration as a long-felt want. In an elementary manual there cannot be too many of them, provided they are good, which these certainly are. Their number, over two hundred woodcuts, should satisfy the craving the writer mentions. As for anatomical and microscopical sections of the subject, the student, sooner or later, of his own accord feels the want of them ; and whether they be included in the science and art syllabus or not, they will not be out of place even in as elementary manual. We call this a well-arranged manual of physiology for elementary students.
