Saintsbury, G: Specimens of French literature from Villon to Hugo. VF 98A2 "Considéré sous le rapport du choix des morceaux, ce livre est excellent et témoigne de la grand connaissance que Mr. Saintsbury posséde de la littérature française." -Puul Bourget in the Academy, July 7.

"A supplement to the author's Short history of French literature.' In certain ways it is a good and use. ful piece of work scholarly, laborious, fairly comprehensive. In certain others it is less satisfactory. Mr. Saintsbury has theories of his own on the subject of what is and what is not important in French literature, which mar his impartiality as a critic, and his usefulness as a teacher."- Athenæum, Aug. 1.

"As an introductory guide to the study of the Roman epoch in Britain, all that could be wished.

Sellar, T: The Sutherland evictions of 1814; former and recent statements respecting them examined. 8DSSU-SE

"In 1807, the Marquis of Stafford began his scheme for the improvement of Sutherland. From time to time, as leases fell in, the sub-teuants were removed from the interior to the coast, where with the sea before them, they would no longer have to depend entirely for subsistence on an ungrateful soil, and their holdings were thrown into sheep pasture. In 1814, Patrick Sellar, then factor to the Marquis of Stafford, removed some tenants from a farm in Strathnaver. He was afterwards accused of having carried out the evictions with great brutality. He was brought to trial in 1816, when a jury with the approval of the judge unanimously ac quitted him. Many years afterwards there appeared a series of letters by Donald MacLeod on the Highland clearances, and the charges against Sellar were peated. Believing MacLeod's allegations to be 'absolutely false,' Mr. Thomas Sellar has written this vin dication of his father." -G. P. Macdonell in the Acad., July 28. Seyppel, C. M.

Smith, G: I've been a gipsying; or, Rambles among our gipsies and their children in their tents and vans.

"Mr. Smith's sketches of his visits to the gipsies are graphic and varied. It is pleasant to learn that though he has never been sparing in his description of the darker features of gipsy life, he has always been welcomed by the gipsies themselves as their genuine friend." - - Contemporary rev., Sept. Spinoza, B. Ethic; demonstrated in geometrical

order, and divided into five parts; tr. by W. H. White. (English and foreign philosoph. lib., v. 21.)

"It is doubtful whether a translation of Spinoza's Ethics was really wanted. Whoever can follow such an argument at all can learn with less labour to follow the clear scholastic Latin of Spinoza. However, if the

thing were to be done, Mr. White has done it very fairly well. His English is clear and manly, and he appears generally to represent Spinoza's meaning accurately enough. The preface deals chiefly with the ques tion which we have a right to ask of any person who professes to have anything to say to us, Wherein can you help me?' by an analysis of some of Spinoza's most edifying propositions, including those which treat of immortality. Mr. White is not the least successful of the interpreters of the actual thought of Spinoza on this vexed question, perhaps, because he is not too careful about his author's consistency." — Academy, Sept. 22. Thompson, M. Songs of fair weather. W5P-T37

"Mr. Thompson as a whole is not one of the poets who are born, and whose mission is to sing. His verse lacks the divine indwelling, and occasional stumbling lines and faulty rhymes must take not a little from his good marks for mere workmanship." Lit. world, Sept. 22.

"Mr. Hawthorne has accustomed his readers to expect certain things from him - an exultation in physical force, a peculiar mysticism and symbolism, a fantastic imagination, and vivid description.

Though the work reveals unquestionable power, it lacks reserve." -Athenæum, Sept. 29.

"There is a suggestion of depth and intensity about it which is rare in modern fiction, and an hereditary instinct for dealing with the lights and shadows of moral nature. Yet it is a book which leaves a rather unpleas ant taste in the mouth after it is read."- St. James's gazette, Sept. 27.
