Mr. Arber has here furnished us with one of the most curious and interesting books even of his rich series.
In the Ferns he made important contributions to our knowledge of the group now familiar to botanists as the Primofilices of Arber.
Professor Arber's other texts are reprinted substantially as they stood.
The second edition was advertised in 1678 (Arber, Term Catalogues, i. 323).
Mr. Arber continues his munificent and inestimable work with increasing efficiency, and we infer with increasing encouragement.
Prof. Arber's discussion of the subject in his edition of Smith's Works is sentimental rather than critical.
The first book, 58 pages in the Arber reprint, deals with definition, purpose and subject matter of poetry.
Grosart regarded Fenton's work, 1579, as the source from which Lynche got the bare bones of his story, and Arber agreed.

It is a perfect luxury to read the scholarly, modest, and painstaking bibliography of Mr. Arber.
Arber Ar·ber (är'bər), Werner. Born 1929.
Swiss microbiologist. He shared a 1978 Nobel Prize for the discovery of restriction enzymes, an important step in the development of genetic engineering.
Swiss microbiologist who postulated the existence of restriction enzymes, selective enzymes that break down molecules of DNA into pieces small enough to be separated for individual study but large enough to retain bits of the original substance's genetic information. These enzymes (later isolated by Hamilton Smith) laid the foundation for the science of genetic engineering, and for this work Arber shared the 1978 Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine with Smith and Daniel Nathans.
