EHC R66 "According to Mr. Romilly there are two fundamental objections to capital punishment. The first of these is, that you cannot take away the life of a criminal without in a great measure depriving him of mak ing good his claim to mercy at the hands of another and higher tribunal that tribunal which will decide his fate in another world.' A second consists in the practical contradiction which the death penalty is alleged to involve. A ruler professes it as his object to stimulate by every means in his power the sentiment of horror for the art of taking away human life, and yet follows up 'the perpetration of a first deliberate homicide by the perpetration of a second deliberate homicide.' Mr. Romilly supplements these objections by other arguments; some of which, however, seem to tell rather against public executions, than against the penalty itself."- St. James's budget, Mar. 27.

Saint-Victor, P. B., comte de. Anciens et modernes.
"A worthy companion to Hommes et dieux,' and a volume which may be taken up at any moment with pleasure, and laid down with reluctance. SaintVictor has chosen all the very most fascinating incidents and problems of history, the romance of events, the enigmas and intrigues, the careers of great personal irresponsible forces, like Caligula, Louvois, Christina of Sweden, the Koenigsmarks, and so forth. There is none of the philosophy of history here, but a great deal of its poetry. People who like Saint-Victor will not turn to his posthumous book with less alacrity when they find that it contains essays on the Cardinal's nieces, on the man with the iron mask, on the Cagots, on the Vedas, on Cato, on Sheridan, on Queen Anne, and Sarah Marlborough, and a dozen other delightful topics."

"Mr. Stutfield is not a scientific traveller. points which concern ethnologists are left untouched. Nor is geology in his debt; and though it is only fair to say that he is seldom inaccurate in the few zoological data which he supplies, he is not, and makes no pretence of being a naturalist. In truth. the latest traveller in Marocco is merely a very intelligent tourist. He went over a great deal of ground in different visits between the years 1881 and 1885, of which a more scientific traveller might have made much. But he did not traverse any actually new country, or cross the Atlas. The greatest portion of his twelve hundred miles was along the coast from Mogador to Tangier. But he also visited Fez, Mekines, and Marocco, besides the once inaccessible town of Wazan. An exhaustive work on Marocco is still to be written, But Mr. Stutfield, in the present volume has practically superceded most other English works on the same subject.” — Robert Brown in the Academy, Apr. 17.

"This translation is a useful piece of work very well performed. For purposes of academic study, the work is not merely useful but imperatively necessary, as Bluntschli's book has been adopted as a text-book for students of history in both Oxford and Cambridge. There is no treatise of English authorship which rivals Bluntschi's in covering the whole ground, and treating with fairly proportional emphasis and fullness the dif ferent topics to which the student's attention has to be directed. It is much to say of a book that it is clear, concise, comprehensive, impartial, judicious, indispensable; but none of these epithets charactarize its method, and, in respect of method, Bluntschli's work leaves much to be desired." - H: Sidgwick in Eng. hist. mag., April.

Collins, J: C. Bolingbroke; a historical study; and Voltaire in England. 5E B635C
"Mr. Collins belongs to that class of authors who write of the past as if it were the present; who treat the great men of former ages as if they were personal friends or personal enemies; and deliver judgment on the events of two centuries ago with as much confidence as if they had occurred yesterday. Accordingly, he is very free with his epithets, and delivers his broadsides right and left without the slightest misgivings as to the accuracy of his aim. Mr. Collins falls into the common error of judging the statesmen of a revolutionary epoch as if they were the statesmen of an or. derly and settled epoch. Where all were intriguers, Bolingbroke was an intriguer; where all but a few de voted partisans were ready for either Stuart or Guelph as the dice should happen to fall, Bolinbroke was ready with the rest; where the great majority looked upon the 'Act of settlement' as only one act in an unfinished political drama, and still liable to reversal, Bolingbroke also regarded it in that light. To Bolingbroke's literary merits Mr. Collins does full justice. His essay is meant for a popular account of Voltaire's sojourn in England, and as such it is copious and graphic."

There are also travels in Nor way, and frequent visits to cathedral towns, and other spots of interest in England. But the letters which record these expeditions do not abound in vivid imagery. Their value is of a different, perhaps a higher order. They illustrate by many a little trait, the sober simplicity of character and singlemindedness of the writer.
