Reclus's masterly works on "The Earth" and "The Ocean," elucidating many of the mysteries of creation, and making science beautifully clear and attractive.—Boston Transcript.

We do not think that we are wide of the mark in saying that the two volumes of Reclus's—" The Earth " and "The Ocean "—come nearer to supplying a real physical geography of the globe than any work or works in the English language.—N. Y. World.

For thorough research, rich attainments, and graphic style, M. Reclus holds high rank among the scientists of the day. It should be borne in mind that this work and its predecessor are written not for those already thoroughly versed in science, so much as for that much larger class of persons who seek to relieve the monotony of daily routine by the acquisition of some degree of knowledge, and who need books which, while accurate and in some sense profound, shall be free from technicalities and open to general understanding. Such books M. Reclus has furnished in these two volumes, which, taken jointly, cover a wide range of discussion.—Boston Journal.
