This is the first part of an introduction to the science of education by a well-known Italian anthropologist and psychologist, who has for some years been engaged in investigating the school-children of Modena and Bologna. With the help of the teachers Dr. Riccardi has collected 100,000 observations on 2,000 children, and in this first part he presents his psychological observations and sociological and statistical researches. Italian children, it is well known, are very frequently ill-fed and undeveloped; Dr. Riccardi brings out very clearly the superiority in all respects of the children belonging to the fairly well-to-do classes. His memoir, which will be of considerable importance when completed, is of interest to all who are occupied with the many-sided problem of the study and treatment of abnormal children.
