ALMANACH FÜR DIE K. K. KRIEGS-MARINE. (Issued by the publishers of the Mittheilungen aus dem Gebiete des Seewesens, Gerold & Co., Vienna.)
This little annual, just received, contains, as usual, besides the ordinary matter found in almanacs, a large proportion of useful information, some specially relating to local affairs of the State, and much of general interest, in a compact and readily accessible form.
Part I. contains very complete conversion tables for changing English weights, measures, pressures per square inch, feet per second, etc., into the corresponding equivalents in the metric system. The tables are of daily use to English-speaking people who read the technical papers published on the Continent, and to foreigners who read American and English publications.
Part II. contains tabulated data relating to the guns used by ten principal European powers, and a pictorial diagram showing the armor-piercing power of these weapons.
