"The book is not a scientific report. The meteoro. logical and magnetic observations which the expedition was sent to make have not yet been worked out. The natural history collections were left behind. The plants, however, were saved, and are catalogued in the appendix. Every page is full of the most valuable
data. Modestly, with an evident desire to tell only the truth, Major Greely gives the history of his experi ences, from the time when the expedition left the United States to the day when it returned, little more than a fifth of what it set out. Though he narrates in detail the execution of private Henry for repeated thefts, he declines to touch on the subject of the cannibalism which aroused so much unnecessary animadversion. These volumes are full of valuable matter. No account of travel produced this winter is comparable with them; not one is so beautifully illustrated or treats of matter so important. It is nothing more than just to characterize Major Greeley's narrative as worthy of a place beside those of Payer and Nordenskjold."- Athenæum, Mar. 6.

"A writer of such wide interests, who can find something instructive to say about subjects so far apart as the French Revolution and the developments of modern æstheticism, the law courts and the Academy exhibition, St. Bernard and Lord Beaconsfield, who tackles' Mr. Ruskin and Mr. Arnold with equal intrepidity, cannot fail to suggest matter for discussion to any moderately intelligent reader. Perhaps the pick of the basket,' is the essay on the Opening of the courts of justice' written in anticipation of the event which took place on Dec., 1882."— Athenæum, Mar. 20.

Kershaw, S. W. Protestants from France in their English home; illust.
"The chapter on the Kentish settlements represent more than a mere reduction of Agnew's somewhat cumbrous narrative. But the attempt at popular treatment has resulted in a rather disjointed summary, sometimes giving the impression of mere notes printed from a commonplace book. To the deficiencies of style and arrangement must be added some more serious omissions.
In the last chapter dealing with the present state of French Protestantism, the most serious defects will be found." Athenæum, Mar. 27.
"The title is a happy thought, but it is the only one in the book. The prig in question is more of an enthusiast or a fanatic than a prig. He writes his own history; and it is the history of a religious maniac who procoeds from High Churchism to Ritualism, and so on through all the religious issues including Buddhism, Mohammedanism, Confucianism, etc., till he arrives at Agnosticism and a wife. The idea is deplorably commonplace, and the way it is worked out is still more so." - Acad. emy, Jan. 2.
"It is a common experience to meet with a volume which might with advantage have been compressed into an essay.

"The first two lectures are mainly concerned with the principles involved in the fertilization of plants, now so identified with the name of Darwin. But Sir John brings many fresh observations of his own to render if it were possible, the basis of that doctrine more firm. The section of the second lecture, on seeds which mimic animals, we regard as the perfection of popular scientific style. The object of the lecture on Leaves' is to show that the endless variety of shape and character and hue, which has often been regarded as a beneficent arrangement made specially with reference to the enjoyment and delight of man, is really due more to considerations of utility, of fitness, and purpose; and the investigation of some of the typical forms is carried out in a manner well calculated to enforce this conviction." - British quarterly rev., April.

Myers, E. The judgment of Prometheus; and other poems.
"There is no marked originality of thought or of expression. His ideas are those of a man of culture, who sees life through the medium of his culture that is to say, at second hand.... Mr. Myers is best in blank verse, which he writes, if not originally, at least with an electicism of imitation which prevents it from seeming a monotonous echo of any one voice. In his rhymed verses Mr. Myers has some passages of real beauty, though few of sustained excellence. His garland of love songs possesses the merit of reticence, so often lacking in the latter-day erotics." Pall Mall budget, April 1.

"With the exception of Alaska and the Arctic seaboard, the Gran Chaco wilderness is certainly the least known region in the New world. ... Since the partial survey of Major Host, little has been done to dispel this ignorance until the appearance of the present work, which notwithstanding innumerable shortcomings and crudities of all sorts, may still be thankfully accepted as a welcome contribution to a better knowledge of the natural history, political and social condition at least of the central districts. The chapters devoted to the geology, climate, physical constitution, and natural re sources of Gran Chaco are by far the most valuable portion of the work." -A. H. Keane in the Academy, Mar.

"A quaintly dull and blundering book. to have said a great deal that is mixed, and a great deal
that is superfluous, and a great deal that every educated man takes for granted, and a great deal that is inaccurate; but then how much more he might have said. There is no reason why a book like this should ever stop; yet stop it does in the long run. The arrangement seems by no means well ordered. Heaps of information (not always correct) are 'shot' (like rubbish) all over the place; and if this information is necessary and ought to be given, why is other information equally necessary withheld?" If we are constantly to be lectured on the clan' stage of society, on community of land and community of responsibility, why should not the whole development of religion and society be described in the same manner? It is just as germane to the topic of literature." - Sat. rev., Apr. 6.

When the au. thor comes to the Jews, his method most conspicuously fails. No ordinarily unbiassed reader of the Bible can help seeing that however crude and unworthy were the early Jewish ideas of their Deity they were not derived from ghost or ancestor worship." - Saturday review,
