This volume claims to fill the gap between volumes of a similar character, which, says the compiler, are all too old to be of interest, or too advanced to be within the comprehension of the general reader. We suppose the gap was worth filling, but we must confess to finding little in the book that is not to be discovered elsewhere. On the other hand the contents are well grouped and will, no doubt, be read with avidity by many who have a taste for arithmetical conundrums. One interesting feature is that about a quarter of the book is devoted to magic squares, which Fermat described as "rien de plus beau en l'Arithmetique." The explanations throughout are precise and clear, and the book is beautifully printed. We can cordially recommend it as an inexpensive present (3fr. 50c.) to a boy who knows some French and who is fond of arithmetic. It can do him no harm, it will give him much amusement, and it may ripen a latent taste for speculations in a realm which can be explored with fruitful results by a student of ordinary intelligence.
