A Manual of the Trees of North America. By Charles

Sprague Sargent. (Houghton, Mifflin, and Co., Boston, U.S. 86 net.)— This volume, which deals with the whole continent, excluding Mexico, enumerates and describes six hundred and thirty kinds, many of which are illustrated by drawings executed by Mr. Charles E. Faxon. The book has, of course, many utilities ; one that immediately occurs is the possibility that it suggests of new and valuable imports.
