Holland, F: M. The rise of intellectual liberty from Thales to Copernicus.

"The writer of this work has pursued a distinct purpose of his own; for he has endeavored to write, not a history of philosophy, but a history of free thinking. A thorough examination of this work convinces us that Mr. Holland has read too much and thought too little. He has been an indefatigable collector of facts of a certain kind. But he has not added to our stock of historical truth. He has not brooded over the facts until their organic relations have been revealed; he has not grouped events so that they illustrate historic laws and processes.

He overloads us with statements of what occurred, but he gives us no conception of the causes of human progress; nor does he trace the continuity of historic forces."

His verbal accuracy is unimpeachable. The fault which must be charged against his version is that it does justify Cervantes's own criticism of all renderings from a foreign language, that they after all give us only the back of the tapestry. We see the design of the original in Mr. Ormsby's English, but the colour has lost some of its vividness, and the outline is at times blurred. Mr. Ormsby prefixes a sketch of Cervantes's Life, and an essay on Don Quixote.' They are both of them sane and scholarly.
