THE UNIVERSITY SERIES
A NEW SERIES OF
USEFUL AND IMPORTANT BOOKS
EDITED BY PROFESSOR WM. KNIGHT
CHARLES SCRIBNER'S SONS, Publishers
THIS Series, published by John Murray in Eng-
land and Charles Scribner's Sons in America,
is designed to supply the need so widely felt of
authorized books for study and reference both by
students and by the general public.
The aim of these Manuals is to educate rather
than to inform. In their preparation, details have
been avoided except when they illustrate the working
of general laws and the development of principles ;
while the historical evolution of both the literary
and scientific subjects, as well as their philosophical
significance, has been kept in view.
The remarkable success which has attended the
Series has been largely due to the union of scien-
tific with popular treatment, and of simplicity with
thoroughness; qualities that win the general reader
everywhere, and that in America make several of
the Manuals highly useful as text-books.

the division of literature according to ages and characteristics combine to
make this manual especially fitted to use in the class-room.
Criticism is supplemented by exposition, with extracts to exhibit the
fashion of a period, or the style of a master. The number of authors
indicates the importance of a period, and intrinsic power the importance
of an author. American literature is considered as a part of the whole,

The aim of this book is to give an account of the functions of the
organs of sense as found in man and the higher animals. Simple experi-
ments are suggested by which any one may test the statements for hiin-
ss\f, and the book has been so written as to be readily understood by
those who have not made physiology a special study. It will be found a

logical psychology. Excellent illustrations abound.

The diffusion of European, and, more particularly, of English, civiliza-
tion is the subject of this book. The treatment of this great theme covers
the origin and the historical, political, economical and ethnological develop-
ment of the English colonies. There is thus spread before the reader a
bird's-eye view of the colonies, great and small, from their origin until the
present time, with a summary of the wars and other great events which
have occurred in the progress of this colonizing work, and with a careful
examination of some of the most important questions, economical, com-
mercial, and political, which now affect the relation of the colonies and the

was notable in English poetry from 1603-1625. It is the first book to con-
centrate attention on the poetry produced during the reign of James I.
Many writers appear here for the first time in a book of this nature. The
aim has been to find unfamiliar beauties rather than to reprint for the
thousandth time what is already familiar.

Gentlemen : As a text-book lor the study of the " Fine Arts," there
is nothing in the literature of the subject that answers the requirements as
this little book.
The originality of Professor Brown's work is apparent. Out of a wide
familiarity with the classical literature of the subject he has sifted the essen-
tial truths. And of the modern writers on aesthetics he knows and digests
everything from Winkelmann to Whistler. But what distinguishes this
book from others and gives it a special value is the treatment of the " Fine
Arts" from their technical side. This is especially evident in his chapter
on painting, which contains many suggestions of value to the young artist

i2mo, $1.00 net.
This book has a special value to students and readers who do not own
the great works of such writers as De Tocqueville, Taine, Michelet, and
Von Sybel. Mr. Mallet presents economic and political aspects of society
before the Revolution attempts to explain why the Revolution came ; why
the men who made it failed to attain tne liberty they so ardently desired, or
to found the new order which they hoped to see in France ; by what arts
and accidents, owing to what deeper causes, an inconspicuous minority
gradually grew into a victorious party ; how external circumstances kept
the revolutionary fever up, and forced the Revolution forward. History
offers no problem of more surpassing interest and none more perplexing

LOGIC, INDUCTIVE AND DEDUCTIVE
By WILLIAM MINTO, M.A., Hon. LL.D., St. An-
drews, Late Professor of Logic in the University
of Aberdeen. With Diagrams. 385 pages. i2mo,
FROM THE PREFACE. " In this little treatise ttva things are
attempted. One of them is to put the study of logical formula: on a
historical basis. The other, which might at first appear inconsistent
'ti'itk this, is to increase the power of Logic as a practical discipline.
Tlii' main purpose of this practical science, or scientific art, is con-
ceived to be the organization of reason against error, and error in its
various kinds is made the basis of the division of the subject. To carry
out this practical aim along with the historical one is not hopeless,
because throughout its long history Logic has been a practical science ;
and, as I have tried to show at some length in introductory chapters,
has concerned itself at different periods with the risks of eiror peculiar
CHAPTERS IN MODERN BOTANY
By PATRICK GEDDES, Professor of Botany, Univers-
ity College, Dundee. i2mo, Illustrated, $1.25 net.
Beginning with some of the strangest forms and processes of the
vegetable world [Pitcher Plants], it exhibits these, not merely as a vege-
table menagerie, but to give, as speedily and interestingly as may be:
(a) Some general comprehension of the processes and forms of vege-
table life, and, from the very first,
(b) Some intelligent grasp of he experimental methods and reasoning
employed in their investigation.
Other Insectivorous Plants, with their Movements and Nervous Ac-
tion, are discussed. The Web of Life, Relations between Plants and
Animals, Spring and its Studies, Geographical Distribution, Landscapes,
Leaves, etc., form the subject of other chapters, and handled in a way to
open the general subject of systematic botany most invitingly.

ROBERTS, M.A., Camb., D.Sc. Lond. With col-
ored Maps and Illustrations. i2mo, $1.50 net.
A sketch of the methods and the results of geological inquiry to help
those who wish to take up the study in its most interesting features. The
purpose is to answer such questions as readily suggest themselves to the
student, among which may be mentioned the following : What is the nature
of the crust movements to which the land-areas and mountain ranges are
due? What was the distribution of land and water that obtained in the
area when each group of rocks was formed ? \Vhat was the condition of its
surface, and what the forms of life inhabiting it? What were the oceanic
conditions ; the depths in different parts ; the forms of life inhabiting the
water : and the nature and extent of the materials brought down by the
rivers that poured into the seas from the land-areas of that period?

whole, and by indicating the leading points of view from which each of
the great systems may be best understood.

SHAKSPERE AND HIS PREDECESSORS
By FREDERICK S. BOAS. Formerly Exhibitioner at
Balliol College, Oxford. i2mo, $1.50 net.
Shakspere's writings are treated in this work in their approximate
chronological order. The relation of the writings to their sources, their
technique and general import, and their points of contact with the litera-
ture of their own and earlier times, engage the author's attention. The
Rise of the English Drama is clearly sketched, while Shakspere's kinship
to his predecessors is given much greater prominence than is usual.
