A class-book of geography 




This Class-Book of Geography was first published in 1878; various errors have been corrected in subsequent editions, but no revision has been made. Messrs. Macmillan now inform me that a larger new edition is required, and suggested that the book should be brought up to date, which has been done for me by the Rev. G. E. Mackie, Head- Master of the Godolphin School. I have gone over his revision before going to press. The principal alterations are —
 ( 1) the putting in newer numbers for the population of towns; 
(2) the bringing up to date the political geography of Egypt, Turkey, &c.; 
(3) the mention of a few places, like Baku, which has lately become of importance; 
(4) the addition of an Appendix, intended to indicate what is meant by Astronomic Geography and Chartography. I have been asked, by friends of geographic eminence, to have better, i.e. more expensive maps. I prefer not to raise materially the price of the book
