Straiaed to republish from the Popular Soieuoe Monthly my reviews of Dr. Batze Pswork entitled The History of Mankind, sinoe the various reviews, in English at least, while deservedly recognizing the great merits of this important compilation of facts and figures, have failed to point out any of its oversights or errors. I trust its talented author will realize this is done in the kindliest spirit, but as an American I must protest against the very grave omission of, or scant allusion to, the contributions of our ethnologists. Salem, Mass., Oct. 1899. Edward S. Morse. Reprint from Appleton s Popular Science Monthly, A pril, 1898. In no way can one appreciate more clearly the remarkable advance in ethnographic studies than by comparing the great work of Professor Batzel on The History of Mankind with the early works of Pritchard and Wood. The illustrated work of the Rev. J. G. Wood on the Natural History of Man represented the state of our knowledgj Bon the subject at the time it was compiled, in a popular way to be sure, but nevertheless the reader had presented to him in a graphic way a light sketch of the habits, manners and customs of the various peoples of the world. There were blunders, of course, such as classifying the Japanese with the uncivilized races !I nthe work of Eatzel we have a popular exposition of the subject from the same standpoint. It is a compact storehouse of facts, and the infinite lines of research shown in this remarkable compilation of data give one a just idea of the tremendous strides the science of ethnology has taken within a quarter of a century. A book bearing the indorsement of Professor Yirchow and introduced to English readers by a prefatory chapter from the pen of Dr. E. B. Tylor must be one of importance and merit, and so it is. It has an unusually large number of illustrations of the weapons, utensils, toys, totems, etc(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
