The work has, since its first presentation, been rearranged and a reprint of the Victorian edition has been issued in India under the auspipes of the central government at Calcutta, and an edition now before us, with numerous additions, has been reprinted with the sanction of Sir Henry Parkes, Colonial Secretary of New South Wales, for the use of that colony...
