A Modern Zoroastrian

From The "Westminster Review.""In the strictly scientific part of the work the exposition is admirable, such as any great teacher might be glad to have written, marked by breadth of grasp and clearness. . . . From its clearly written, able, and sympathetic discussion of so many of the great problems of existence, the book cannot fail to exercise a great influence on a large number of readers."From "Progress.""This volume may be taken as a continuation of Mr. Laing's former work, 'Modern Science and Modern Thought.' It exhibits the same power of the lucid statement. Even the most abstruse questions are elucidated by apt illustrations, and if we occasionally feel that a difficult point is too easily summed up, we are compelled to admit that Mr. Laing has mastered the questions, and presented the most essential features."From "The Scotsman.""Whether it be admitted or denied that Mr. Laing has explained all he attempts to explain in 'A Modern Zoroastrian, ' it may be granted that he has, as he claims to have, a faculty of lucid condensation.

A Selection of 19th Century Scientific Verse

In the 18th and early 19th centuries, it was common for discoveries in branches of science such as botany, astronomy and medicine to be described in book-length treatises in verse. By the end of the 19th century this mode of popularising science was falling from favour as the studies of science and the humanities diverged and study became more specialised. This small selection of somewhat lighter-hearted verse written by distinguished scientists and mathematicians of the day includes poems by James Clerk Maxwell, William J. Macquorn Rankine and James Joseph Sylvester. (Summary by Ruth Golding)

A-B-C of Electricity

The favor with which this book has been received has brought about the preparation of this new edition. The present volume has been enlarged by the addition of certain new material and it has been entirely reset. Some new illustrations have been made, and in its new dress the book, it is hoped, will be found to afford an even larger measure of usefulness. The principles of the science remain the same, but the author is glad of the opportunity to note certain developments in their application. W. H. M.
