"Selections from letters and despatches, illustrated by quotations from other men. Mr. Laughton has on the whole chosen well. He suppresses repetitions, gives his dates carefully, and here and there puts in an explanatory note which clears up an obscure point or joins one selected passage on to the next. Still, it is neither an artistically constructed biography nor a full collection of original materials. There is no doubt one purpose which Mr. Laughton's selection may serve. It may be a handy cram-book for naval officers who have to learn something directly about Nelson, and who want industry or leisure to read Nicolas." - Sat. rev., May 8.

The essay on Chatterton is not the hapThe sixty pages or so on Byron, piest in the book. however, are valuable and timely matter.

"Miss Miner was a native of New York. She edu. cated herself with the greatest resolution and the greatest difficulty, both on account of her poverty and of her frail physique, and began to teach, first, at the North, and afterward at the South, where she imbibed a horror

of slavery. An interval of seventeen years elapsed between her return from Mississippi and her first steps towards setting up a school in 1851 in the District of Columbia for free colored children. In 1863 the school was made an incorporated institution, and is now the flourishing Miner Norinal School, a part of the colored school system of the District." Nation, Feb. 11.

The illustrations include some eighty plates, in photogravure and chromolithography, and in etching and wood engraving by native craftsmen. Mr. Anderson has the immense advantage over all those who have preceded him in the consideration of his subject of having studied it on the spot, and of knowing it with a knowledge personally sought and acquired. It is something of a feat to summarize the history of a thousand years of art in the compass of sixty-four folio pages; and this feat Mr. Anderson has accomplished in the letter-press of his first issue. His narrative, while necessarily in outline, is remarkable for its clearness and continuity." Sat. rev., Jan. 30.

The most earnest of his aspirations are his desire to give scientific men a substantial ground for condemning and repudiating the cruelties of vivisection, and his equally eager desire to make of art and literature beneficent agencies which may fix our thoughts and aims on what is noblest, without too much ignoring the conditions of our actual life." - Spectator, May 1.
