THE

POPULAR SCIENCE REVIEW,

A QUARTERLY MISCELLANY OF ENTERTAINING & INSTRUCTIVE ARTICLES ON SCIENTIFIC SUBJECTS.

EDITED BY JAMES SAMUELSON.

This periodical does not partake of the character of the abstruse “Quarterlies,” or the “ Transactions” of Scientific Societies; nor is it, on the other hand, framed simply for the amusement of those who desire to employ Science as a mere pastime. Its contents are addressed to those numerous readers who, without making any pretensions to rank among the learned, desire to become acquainted with the truths of science; a pursuit which they are frequently deterred from following, by the abstruse language in vogue amongst scientific men, or from the nature of their ordinary avocations being too laborious and engrossing to allow of close study during leisure hours.

Each number contains systematic, instructive articles (illustrated when needful) on subjects connected with some of the following sciences, viz. :ASTRONOMY. GEOGRAPHY.

MINERALOGY.
BOTANY.
GEOLOGY.

Physics.
CHEMISTRY.
METALLURGY.

ZOOLOGY.
ETHNOLOGY.
MICROSCOPY.

&c. &c., and SCIENCE applied to the Arts, Manufactures, Commerce, and Agriculture, together with a Complete Summary of all the events of importance which have taken place during the quarter in each department of Science.

Amongst the Contributors are :Prof. ANSTED, F.R.S.

Prof. HUNT, F.R.S. Prof. BUCKMAN, F.L.S., F.S.A., E. JESSE, F.L.S. F.G.S.
