Page 313 - OF THE POINT, RAY, AND CIRCLE. By WILLIAM B. SMITH, Ph.D., Professor of Mathematics in the Tulane University of New Orleans, La. Cloth. $1.1O. "To the many of my fellow-teachers in America who have questioned me in regard to the Non-Euclidean Geometry, I would now wish to say publicly that Dr. Smith's conception of that profound advance in pure science is entirely sound. . . .

I shall make provision for it in the advanced class in this school next term.

I6mo. $1.1O. *' The work contains a very large collection of good (and not too hard) examples. Mr. Lock is to be congratulated, when so many Trigonometries are in the field, on having produced so good a book; for he has not merely availed himself of the labors of his predecessors, but by the treatment of a well-worn subject has invested the study of it with interest.
