SCIENCE LECTURES. FIRST SERIES.-"As elenientary lectures on their respective subjects, suited to mere tyros, nothing can be better than this series of lectures. Our school teachers would, from their perusal and study, not so much derive an increase of knowledge perhaps, but certainly they might learn a very useful lesson in the rare but valuable art of popularising technical and scientific language, and thus making the truths of scientific studies more palatable to the ininds of the uncultivated and the apprehensions of the weak."-School Board Chronicle.

FIRST AND SECOND SERIES.-" It is superfluous to say anything about the quality of these addresses; the men guarantee them; and they are probably the best specimens of what it is now the fashion to call the 'Science Lectures that can be found.'

THIRD SERIES.—"These highly interesting and instructive lectures on science popularly treated, are reported verbatim, and being published, at ninepence-a trifle over a penny each lecture-are within the reach of all. The names of the lecturers are sufficient guarantee of the high character of these lectures. There should be a large sale for so cheap and yet so valuable a collection of thoughtful and instructive addresses."-Public Opinion.

THIRD SERIES.-" Is a little work of which we are saying a good deal when we remark that it is as useful as it is cheap. Here are seven lectures, by the most eminent scientific men in the country, sewed together in a neat volume, the whole comprising 140 pages of matter, and sold for ninepence! Professor Roscoe's lecture on 'The Progre of Sanitary Science' is by itself well worth double the money:

Dr. Carpenter's lecture on Epidemic Delusions' is most pleasant and entertaining reading, while at the same time it enlarges our knowledge of human nature. All these lectures are written in a style unclouded with scientific jargon, and therefore we can recommend them with confidence to the most unscientific of our readers."-National Schoolmaster.,

THIRD SERIES.--"In Manchester an effort has been made to enlighten the people by popular lectures on scientific subjects delivered by eminent men. Every winter a course of lectures is delivered, and afterwards printed by Mr. John Heywood, and sold for the small sum of one penny each."

“This little book contains so much instructive matter, couched in easy understandable language, that I have not the slightest hesitation in recommending my readers to make an immediate purchase, that they may read and think for themselves, and I am almost sure they will not repent followi
