BAIN'S WORKS.

THE SENSES AND THE INTELLECT. 8vo. Cloth, $5.00.

The object of this treatise is to give a full and systematic account of two principal divisions of the science of mind-the senses and the intellect. The value of the third edition of the work is greatly enhanced by an account of the psychology of Aristotle, which has been contributed by Mr. Grote.

THE EMOTIONS AND THE WILL. 8vo. Cloth, $5.00.

The present publication is a sequel to the former one on "The Senses and the Intellect," and completes a systematic exposition of the human mind.

MIND AND BODY. Theories of their Relations. 12mo. Cloth, $1.50.

"A forcible statement of the connection between mind and body, studying their subtile interworkings by the light of the most recent physiological investigations."-Christian Register.

EDUCATION AS A SCIENCE. 12mo. Cloth, $1.75.

ON TEACHING ENGLISH. With Detailed Examples and an Inquiry into the Definition of Poetry. 12mo. Cloth, $1.25.

PRACTICAL ESSAYS.

12mo. Cloth, $1.50.

Dr. H. ALLEYNE NICHOLSON'S WORKS. MANUAL OF ZOOLOGY, for the Use of Students, with a General Introduction to the Principles of Zoology. Second edition. Revised and enlarged, with 243 Woodcuts. 12mo. Cloth, $2.50.

THE ANCIENT LIFE-HISTORY OF THE EARTH. A Comprehensive Outline of the Principles and Leading Facts of Palæontological Science. 12mo. Cloth, $2.00.

"A work by a master in the science who understands the significance of every phenomenon which he records, and knows how to make it reveal its lessons. As regards its value there can scarcely exist two opinions. As a text-book of the historical phase of paleontology it will be indispensable to students, whether specially pursuing geology or biology; and without it no man who aspires even to an outline knowledge of natural science can deem his library complete."-The Quarterly Journal of Science.

New York: D. APPLETON & CO., 1, 3, & 5 Bond Street.

Professor JOSEPH LE CONTE'S WORKS.

EVOLUTION AND ITS RELATION TO RELIGIOUS THOUGHT. By JOSEPH LE CONTE, LL. D., Professor of Geology and Natural History in the University of California. With numerous Illustrations. 12mo. Cloth, $1.50.

"Much, very much has been written, especially on the nature and the evidences of evolution, but the literature is so voluminous, much of it so fragmentary, and most of it so technical, that even very intelligent persons have still very vague ideas on the subject. I have attempted to give (1) a very concise account of what we mean by evolution, (2) an outline of the evidences of its truth drawn from many different sources, and (3) its relation to fundamental religious beliefs." -Extract from Preface.

ELEMENTS OF GEOLOGY.

A Text-book for Colleges and for

the General Reader. By JOSEPH LE CONTE, LL. D. With upward of 900 Illustrations. New and enlarged edition. 8vo. Cloth, $4.00. "Besides preparing a comprehensive text-book, suited to present demands, Professor Le Conte has given us a volume of great value as an exposition of the subject, thoroughly up to date. The examples and applications of the work are almost entirely derived from this country, so that it may be properly considered an American geology. We can commend this work without qualification to all who desire an intelligent acquaintance with geological science, as fresh, lucid, full, authentic, the result of devoted study and of long experience in teaching." -Popular Science Monthly.

RELIGION AND SCIENCE. A Series of Sunday Lectures on the Relation of Natural and Revealed Religion, or the Truths revealed in Nature and Scripture. By JOSEPH LE CONTE, LL. D. 12mo. Cloth, $1.50.

"We commend the book cordially to the regard of all who are interested in whatever pertains to the discussion of these grave questions, and especially to those who desire to examine closely the strong foundations on which the Christian faith is reared."-Boston Journal.

SIGHT: An Exposition of the Principles of Monocular and Binocular Vision. By JOSEPH LE CONTE, LL. D. With Illustrations. 12mo. Cloth, $1.50.

"Professor Le Conte has long been known as an original investigator in this department: all that he gives us is treated with a master-hand. It is pleasant to find an American book that can rank with the very best of foreign books on this subject."-The Nation.

New York: D. APPLETON & CO., 1, 3, & 5 Bond Street.

Forces.

The Connection and Equivalence of Forces. The Correlation of the Physical and Vital

"This work is a very welcome addition to our scientific literature, and will be particularly acceptable to those who wish to obtain a popular but at the same time precise and clear view of what Faraday justly calls the highest law in physical science, the principle of the conservation of force. Sufficient attention has not been paid to the publication of collected monographs or memoirs upon special subjects. Dr. Youmans's work exhibits the value of such collections in a very striking manner, and we earnestly hope his excellent example may be followed in other branches of science." American Journal of Science.
