ERMAN'S TRAVELS through SIBERIA. 8vo.

(In the press. *** On this traveller, the President of the Royal Geographical Society, in his Anniversary Address last year, bestowed the following encomium :-"If we regard M. Adolph Erman as an astronomical geographer and explorer of distant lands, we must all admit that he stands in the very highest rank.” And in his Address delivered in May last, tbe President again made honourable mention of this traveller in the following terms:-“In announcing to you with pleasure that the excellent work of your distinguished foreign member and medallist, Adolph Erman, is about to appear in English, I must not lose the opportunity of stating, that the last communication sent to us by M. Erman is one of very great importance."

“ The plan of this work we have before taken occasion to commend. It has, indeed, two great and obvious advantages. In the first place, the narrative style must always be more interesting than the merely descriptive ; and, in the next, the express subject of any particular volume must receive more justice than it could hope for in any treatise of general geography. In both respects it must form an admirable companion to such general treatises, which it is by no means intended to supersede, but to amplify, explain, and illustrate. To such works, therefore, as Malte-Brun improved by succeeding editors), the addition of this companion cannot fail to constitute a complete

body of geography, so far as regards the countries and objects to be surveyed.' "-ATREN ÆUM. COOLEY.-THE HISTORY OF MARITIME AND INLAND
