lion. Bingham, D. A. Marriages of the Bonapartes. 2 v. "Mr. Bingham has traced the workings of the mar vellous mind of the first Napoleon (at once so great and so mean) through many obscure windings of policy and has presented the world with an amusing gossiping book. ... That the history of the Bonapartes should be a chronique scandaleuse is not so much Mr. Bingham's fault as that of the times which he describes, and we owe him thanks for having trodden warily and delicately over many very miry places." Notes and queries.

"The marriages made or marred by Napoleon are so mixed up with his more important and truly historical acts that a history of the one means an entertaining narrative of the other."- W: Wallace in the Academy, Oct. 29, 1881.

"Not long and not dull. To a topic which especially requires it he has applied a bright and telling style." Athenæum, Feb. 18.

He has hit the essential meaning and spirit of the work done by each of the great educational reformers, and has shown much skill in describing it. He is the master of a very clear, concise style, free from rhetorical ornament, but full of life and interest; and he has the art of conveying in neat, pregnant aphorisms, the characteristic dogmas of the various writers of whom he gives an account.”—J.

Parmi les objets nouveaux, non soupçonnes par Gro. tius et ses successeurs, dont la communauté des états aurait à s'occuper, l'auteur signale, dans quelques pages remarquables (23-28), les mesures communes de défense à prendre contre les prétentions internationales de l'ultramontanisme et du socialisme. ...

"Pendant près de cinqnante ans que Madame passa en France, elle ne manqua jamais d'envoyer à sa tante et a sa sœur, une fois par semaine au moins ses impres sions, ses confedences. Nous avons en elle un témoin bien placé pour tout voir, et un témoin qui dit tout. Ce n'est pas un Dangeau sec et froid; ce serait plutôt un Saint-Simon avec un esprit moins étincelant sans doute, une verve moins endiablée. ... Ses colères font parfois sourire, la liberté et la crudité de son langage étonnent aussi. Elle revient souvent sur les mœurs dissolues de la cour, les scandales qui éclatent dans certains ménages, les grands seigneurs qui s'enivrent. Ne soyons pas scandalisés de ce style, qui. disait spirituellement SainteBeuve, a de la barbe au menton. En appelant les choses par leur nom, la Palatine nous a tracé une peinture energique où se détache avec un singulier relief ce que l'histoire officielle ne saurait montrer. Ses peintures, d'une énergie toute biblique, ne laissent rien dans l'ombre. On voit alors ce qu'il y avait, sous un vernis apparent de décence et de majesté hypocrite, de rude, de brutal, de grossier et de révoltant dans ce grand siècle dont on se fait trop souvent un idéal bién trompeur.”— Rev. pol. et lit., 17 avril.

"Notable for the theory of the chronological succession and geographical distribution of the races of man in the British Islands, and the discussion of the origin of the curious custom called "Borough English," or "Junior right." The book concludes with the conversion of the Anglo-Saxons to Christianity."

"The author's object has been to reconstruct, by the methods of modern scientific research, the history of these islands from the first references in the Greek geographers down to the conversion of the Anglo-Saxons to Christianity. It is, therefore, in method rather than in subject that this work will differ from the Monumenta historica Britannica' 1848; but we venture to anticipate that the change in method will produce a revolution in the opinion of those who are not aware how much can be recovered, by patient research and criticism, about the prehistoric period of England." - Academy, Oct. 29, 1881.

"The 'Talented mother' is perhaps the best-a lively, comic story of a love affair among visitors to the eternal city, with enough of serious interest to keep the attention on the stretch, and terminating with a pleasant and unforeseen dénouement. In The posterity of Romulus,' bright traits of ordinary Roman life are mingled with the hallucinations of an old painter devoted to Spiritualism, a situation suggesting reminiscences of Tieck and Balzac, and inviting a comparison, not wholly unfavorable to Heyse, with one of Mr. Henry James's recent stories. The Witch of the Corso' is gloomy and melo-dramatic, with considerable tragic power."- Saturday rev., Jan. 15, 1881.
