Abstracts will be prepared and the work edited by "competent individuals". A public society has been formed by the Baron de Ferussac which "the most distinguished scientific men of France" have joined. The Baron is also attempting to recruit associates and shareholders in Britain, Germany, "other parts of the Continent, and in the Americas". The Athenaeum wishes the project well]
