"The further we proceed the more clearly shall we realize the connection and interdependence of all departments of science. Year after year, as meetings of this Association take place, we may also forsee that 'many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall be increased.' Year after year advances will be made in science; and in reading that Book of Nature that lies ever open before our eyes, successive stones will be brought for building up that Temple of Knowledge of which our fathers and we have laboured to lay the foundations. May we not well exclaim with old Robert Recorde ?



"Oh woorthy temple of Goddes magnificence: Oh throne of glorye and seate of the lorde : thy substance most pure what tonge can describe? thy signs are so wondrous, surmountinge mannes witte, the effects of thy motions so diuers in kinde: so harde for to searche, and worse for to fynde-Thy woorkes are all wonderous, thy cunning unknowen: yet seedes of all knowledge in that booke are sowen-And yet in that boke who rightly can reade, to all secrete knowledge it will him straighte leade' (Preface to Robert Recorde's Castle of Knowledge, 1556)." Extract from Sir John Evans' Presidential Address to the British Association, Toronto, 1897.

The Honorable Alicia Amherst's History

OF GARDENING IN ENGLAND, in one volume royal 8vo. xiv and 404 pp. A New Edition. With 67 Illustrations of Old English Gardens and a revised text, extra cloth, cash 188

The First Edition was sold within two months of its publication, and many were the disappointments of unsuccessful would-be buyers.

"A remarkable ceremony was performed at the meeting of the Worshipful Company of Gardeners,' on Thursday last, in the Grafton Gallery, in the bestowal of the freedom of the guild upon a young lady. The statement might seem curious were it not that the young lady was Miss Alicia Amherst, daughter of Lord Amherst of Hackney, whose new book on the History of Gardening in England has won for her celebrity as the chief authority on the subject. Even as to the records of the Company itself, Miss Amherst probably knew a great deal more than any of the officers who called the meeting in her honour. At least, they will admit that much of their early history (in the time of James I) was made clearer to them by her book, which has indeed achieved a success so sudden and so great (considering the nature of its subject) as to assume it a permanent place in English literature."-The World.

Birdwood's First Letter Book of the East

INDIA COMPANY, 1600-1619, 8vo., cloth, £2. 28


"The volume is a model of good work, and is worthy to rank with the Calendars of State Papers issued from time to time by the Rolls Office.

"The preface by Sir George Birdwood is delightful reading, and contains much new information on the subjects to which the documents relate."-The Athenæum, March 13th, 1897.

"The interest attaching to the Goniatites as the direct ancestors of the Ammonites, and the conclusive evidence which the former afford of their almost imperceptible passage into the latter, will render this volume extremely important to all those who desire to study the phylogeny of this group."-Henry Woodward.
