KIRKUS REVIEW

Two additions to this illustrated series (the Sky, Time and the, Sun have previously appeared) carry on the excellence of both text and illustrations (particularly in the color plates). Balloons is presented by a man with a lifetime of aviation experience, and, after a discourse on free, captive and dirigible balloons, contains a history of them and balloon navigation, and surveys the relation of balloons and science. Evolution, by an author recognized in the field of experimental biology, is made up of three sections: the history of the idea of evolution, modern transformism, and the future of man. French derived, the translations (by Carter Mason and Rebecca Abramson) are handled with ease, and the volumes, in every way, should attract a satisfied audience.
