"This work will be found admirably adapted for the purpose for which it is intended, viz. to introduce to the student the improved system of Conchology, founded by the celebrated French naturalist Lamarck, which is done in a clear and concise manner, by giving a short adequate description of the various classes, orders, families, and genera, composing the system; accompanied with illustrations of characteristic and generally well known species, drawn from nature. We can strongly recommend it to the attention of all those who feel interested in this department of natural history. The plates, twenty-two in number, are thickly though not confusedly studded with figures-indeed, considerable taste is displayed in their arrangement; they are beautifully coloured, and have more the appearance of highly-finished drawings than merely tinted engravings, and on the whole, it reflects great credit upon the artist-anthor."

"Of this work it is scarcely possible to speak in terms of too high commendation. It is, in fact such a work, as but few living authors could have

written. It forms an admirable Manual of Geology, comprised in a series of lectures, commencing with the most recent formations, down to the primary rocks. The whole of these extensive and varied subjects are arranged with a perspicnity, and treated with a talent peculiar to their highly gifted author, whose method and style are as clear, eloquent, and attractive, as his scientific attainments are accurate and profound."

"For the proficient in this branch of knowledge Dr. Mantell's work provides an accurate and complete hand-book wherein the chief points of the science are classified and laid down; and for the general reader the style of the book is so agreeable, the explanation so clear, and, above all, the subjects so extraordinarily interesting, that he cannot do better than purchase and study it, we cannot, we think, do him a greater service than most earnestly to recommend him to read it."-Times.

"The WONDERS OF GEOLOGY,' by Dr. Mantell, present the substance of the Geological Lectures delivered by him at Brighton. It contains, indeed, the principal WONDERS of the science; but it would be great injustice to consider it as a mere collection of mirabilia. It embraces a regular system of Geology, exhibiting its leading facts, and clearly elucidating its philosophy; the latter being the great object of the work. In point of science it is precise, accurate, condensed, and commendative in proof, conducting the pupil forward by a series of steps, grateful in the progress, and conclusive in the result; no important facts are omitted, and none are unduly expounded. The style is lucid and flowing, but simple and elevated, while the figures render every thing intelligible even to the unscientific reader. The introduction which precedes, and the retrospect which closes each lecture, afford an admirable summary both of facts and doctrine; and are distinguished for graphic power, eloqnent diction, and comprehensive views. The greatest excellence of Dr. Mantell's work, however, is that it forms an excellent pioneer and conductor for the pupil attending a course of lectures; and even for the private student, who has to work his way without a guide. In both these respects it is superior to any book with which we are acquainted: it is a work of delightful entertainment, as well as of instruction."Medical Journal of Science.

"The admirable volumes before us exhibit the most prominent of the facts which the labours of the geologist have already disclosed; and amongst the most successful of these scientific labourers is the author himself. The Wonders of Geology' contain within them those materials which are calculated to engage the highest qualities of the understanding, and to induce a train of reflection and habits which may be productive of the greatest possible moral and intel· lectual advantages, not only to young persons of both sexes, but to individuals of mature years and cultivated minds; we strongly recommend them to all classes of our readers."-The Lancet.

REMAINS, by Gideon Algernon Mantell, LL,D.,
F.R.S, &c. with coloured plates, and numerous
wood-cuts of Organic Remains.

This work is intended to supply, what has long been felt as a desideratum, an easy introduction to the study of Fossils. It will comprise Fossil Botany and Zoology, with simple directions for the collection, developement, and microscopical examination of Organic Remains; and Narratives of Geological Excursions to various places in England, in illustration of the mode of investigating geological phenomena, and of collecting specimens; namely, to the Isle of Sheppey, Brighton, Lewes, Tilgate Forest, Faringdon, Swindon, Calne, Bath, Bristol, Matlock, Crich Hil, &c.

GOODALL, Provost of Eton, of whose persevering industry and devotion to science, illustrative of the natural productions of his native country, every page bears the fullest testimony. The additions are at least equal to, if not more, than the work itself, and are written in his peculiarly beautiful, small, and distinct style. The great quantity of additional matter as well as additional plates, which these volumes contain, would render a new edition of this valuable work very complete.

"Mr. Murchison is well known at hoine as one of the leading founders and honorary officers of the

Geological Society; and the eminent position which that society at present occupies in public estimation is in a great degree attributable to his exertions. But he is equally known to all European Geologists as one of the most indefatigable votaries of the science; and the examination which for many years past he has been engaged in prosecuting, of the border counties of Wales and England, (the Siluria of Caractacus,) has long been looked to by British and continental geologists with great interest. His work is a contribution to our knowledge of the mineral character and geological history of these important districts-indeed, of a considerable area of Great Britain-the value of which cannot but be gratefully acknowledged by the public. We know, indeed, of no mode in which an individual of competent fortune and acquirements could render a greater service to the community than that which has been adopted in this instance. We say of competent fortune-because it will be obvious to any one who merely glances over the pages of this voluminous and magnificently illustrated work, that without reckoning the years of active and industrious research required for the collection and arrangement of its details, the mere publication could never have been undertaken but in a spirit of total disregard to pounds, shillings, and pence. This work, indeed, presents a singular example of the perfection to which the art of illustrating scientific memoirs has attained in this country, and an equally remarkable monument of the accomplished writer's zeal, industry, and munificent devotion to science. The interest of our author's book is by no means confined to the description of venerable depo. sits the earliest known records of animated existence. It comprehends, likewise, a most complete survey of the entire geology of that large and important division of the island in which these rocks occur, the greater part of which bad either not been described at all, or had been laid down very imperfecly by preceding writers, and without a clear appreciation of the true relations and structure of the several groups of stratified and intrusive rocks which constitute that region. To the inhabitants of this district, and espe cially the owners of its soil, and those whose capital is embarked in the working of its mineral resources, it is evident that Mr. Murchison's work must present matter of the deepest interest, containing as it does the amplest detail, both descriptive and illustrative, of the mineral structure of the country, upwards of a hundred highly finished and coloured sections, numerous pictorial views, a complete atlas of plates representing organic remains, and finally, a map of large dimensions, coloured geologically, and executed with a precision and effect that had certainly never been equalled in any previous scientific publication. Included in the work is a description and catalogue of organic remains. Elaborate engravings are given of about 350 species, three-fourths of which are new to the scientific world. And it is upon this that the chief merit of our author's labours is based, since he demonstrates that, independently of all local or mineral distinctions, these Silurian rocks contain vast quantities of organic remains-a fauna of their owntotally distinct, except in a very few individual instances, from the fossils of the overlying systems."— Quarterly Review.

"This is a very important work, and one which ought to be found in every scientific library both at home and abroad, in the old world and in the new In whichever point of view we consider it, it is alike honourable to its author. As a contribution to geolo gical science, any effort to classify and systematise the older rocks and their organic remains must have deserved a very high eulogium; but when we see this done for the first time, after so vart a field of labour, and with so much skill and ability we know not in what terms sufficiently laudatory to express the obligation of the public, and of geoloists in particular, for the producing of so truly valuable a work. must contribute largely to the advancement of geology; and is, indeed, in our judgment, not only a credit to the individual, but to the national character. These illustrations are not beautiful, they are magnificent; and the map is one of extraordinary completeness and scientific interest."-Literary Gazette.
