General Geography. By H. R. Mill. (Macmillan.)—This digest of general

geography should fulfil its purpose well enough, for the writer has combined with his geographical text various historical, political, mercantile, industrial, meteorological, and descriptive items. It is this, indeed, which makes geography interesting, and such a volume as Mr. Mill's should meet with approval from those who desire more attention to be paid to commercial and technical teaching in geography.
