THE INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC SERIES.
Messrs. HENRY S. KING & Co. have the pleasure to announce that under the above title they intend to issue a SERIES of POPULAR TREATISES, embodying the results of the latest investigations in the various departments of Science at present most prominently before the world.
The character and scope of the Series will be best indicated by a reference to the names and subjects included in the subjoined List; from which it will be seen that the co-operation of many of the most distinguished Professors in England, America, Germany, and France has been already secured.
Although these Works are not specially designed for the instruction of beginners, still, as they are intended to address the non-scientific public, they will be, as far as possible, explanatory in character, and free from technicalities. The object of each author will be to bring his subject as near as he can to the general reader.
The Series will also be published simultaneously in New York by Messrs. D. Appleton & Co.; in Paris by M. Germer Baillière ; and in Leipzig by Messrs. Brockhaus. The volumes will be crown 8vo size, well printed on good paper, strongly and elegantly bound, and will sell in this country at a price not exceeding Five Shillings.
A first List of Authors and Subjects is appended ; but several of the titles are provisional. The first volume, by Professor TYNDALL, F.R.S., on the subject of “The FORMS of WATER in Clouds, Rain, Rivers, Ice and Glaciers," is now in the Press, and will be published during the Spring.
