Italian scientist; born in Venice, 1836. He attained world-wide celebrity as an investigator of pathology, psychiatry, nervous diseases, criminology, and allied departments of science. His theory of a definite criminal type, the born criminal, is not any longer considered as having been established. His principal works are: "Researches on Cretinism in Lombardy" (1859); "Genius and Insanity" (1864); "Clinical Studies on Mental Diseases" (1865); "Microcephaly and Cretinism" (1873); "The Criminal" (1875); "Love in Suicide and in Crime" (1881); "The Man of Genius as Related to Psychiatry" (1889); "Female Criminals" (1893); "Anti-Semitism" (1894); "The Anarchists" (1894); "Genius and Degeneracy" (1897); "Crime, Its Causes and Remedies" (1899); "After Death - What?"

Lomza, Poland, a fortified city, 96 miles N. E. of Warsaw, on the E. bank of the Narev. Pop. about 30,000, a large portion of which is Jewish. It is the center of an agricultural region which produces most of the grain crops. The city and its environs was the scene of several important battles between the Russians and Germans during the struggle for Warsaw.

London, the metropolis of the British empire, and the most populous, wealthy, and commercial city of the world. It is situated partly and principally on the N. bank of the Thames, in the county of Middlesex, and partly on its S. bank in the county of Surrey, its suburbs extending into several other counties, and is about 45 miles above the rivers mouth. The site on the N. side is high and dry, but on the S. it is so low as to be under the level of the highest tides, though, by a well-constructed system of drainage, it is kept perfectly free from wet. The sub-soil is a hard clay, known to geologists by the name of "London clay," lying in the middle of the great chalk basin, extending E. from Berks. London comprises, besides the City of London and the city of Westminster, the parliamentary boroughs of Battersea, Bermondsey, Bethnal Green, Camberwell, Chelsea, Deptford, Finsbury, Fulham, Greenwich, Hackney, Hammersmith, Hampstead, Holborn, Islington, Kensington, Lambeth, Lewisham, Paddington, Poplar, Marylebone, St. Pancras, Shoreditch, Southwark, Stepney, Stoke Newington, Wandsworth, and Woolwich. These, formerly distinct, combine to form the huge agglomeration called London. Its length E. from Plumstead, in Essex, to its W. boundary Hammersmith, in Middlesex, on the N. bank of the Thames, may be estimated at 19 miles; its breadth, N. to S., or from Hampstead, in Middlesex, to Camberwell, Surrey county, at 14 miles; while its circumference is not less than 40 miles. The municipal and parliamentary city of London which coincides with the registration city of London has an area of 675 acres, with a population in 1911 of 364,061, compared with 301,384 in 1891. The registration county of London coinciding with the administrative county has an area of 74,816 acres and it coincides very nearly with the collective area of the London parliamentary boroughs. The population of registration London for 1911 was 4,521,685. The estimated population in 1917 was 4, 026,911. Included within the limits of London is also the so-called outer ring, comprising a large area of the surrounding country. This had a population in 1911 of 2,729,673 and an estimated population in 1917 of 2,699,852. Including both these areas the population in 1911 was estimated at 7,251,358 and in 1917 at 6,726,763.
