PREFACE.

STRONG feeling has been growing up of late

as to the advisability of cultivating some acquaintance with the industrial condition of the countries of the world, a knowledge of which is clearly of very great importance in these days of technical activity. The object of this little work is to explain in the simplest language the resources and industries of each country, together with the physical and geographical causes that have led to their existence.
