Prevost d'Exiles, A. F., l'abbé. History of Manon
"Doctors Warnke and Proescholdt hope to publish with critical apparatus and annotations, the whole of the seventeen plays 'doubtfully attributed to Shakespeare, and never yet collected together. They are do. ing the thing very thoroughly, with good notes, and an almost too bounteous and laborious collection of variants.' Saturday review, Jan. 22.

Voyage to the E. Indies,
the Maldives, the Moluccas and Brazil, tr. by
Raffei, S. Ricerche sopra un Apolline della Villa
"Has some value as a guide-book, but its psychologi. cal interest is still greater. The travellers seem to have had for their chief aim the promotion of a union between the Anglican and Greek Churches. The author had unusual opportunities of observing, and was by no means blind in remarking the characteristic traits of the monastic system of the Dark Ages in that most wonderful historical survival in the world which exists still on Mount Athos that museum of living antiquities, and of still adored relics."

Roux, J., l'abbé. Nouvelles pensées.
"Il lui déplait qu'on attribue une large part du succès de son preniler volume à les sourds tressaillements de révolte qu'on avait cru y sentir. Cependant, tel est son épanouissement d'avoir échangé sa dure chaise de petit curé contre un fauteuil bien capitonné de chanoine, qu'il semble justifier les vieux griefs d'aigreur, de mécon tentement, et de sourde révolte. Un peu trop de mauvaise humeur alors; un peu trop de joie rayonnante aujourd'hui." Maxime Gaucher in Rev. pol. et lit., 9
Rowbotham, J: F: History of music. Vol. 3.
"Completes the elaborate and masterly work. Mr. Rowbotham's style has a charm about it all his own. It is not merely that he writes with complete knowledge and an immense research, but that he follows out the 'ethos' of his subject, Homeric hexameter, or Sopho. clean chorus, or Gregorian chant, besides putting the scene before his reader with a vividness and a felicity of language rarely equalled." - Bookseller, Aug. 5.

"Dr. Gaster has done good service by calling the attention of scholars to an interesting, but long neglected, branch of literature- the numerous works which were, during a considerable period of time, translated from the Greek into Slavic languages, and which have to a marked degree affected, not only the folklore of the Slavs, but also that of the whole of Europe." — W.

Japanese fairy tale series; [tr. by Mrs. James and Mr. Chamberlain].
"Quaint and pretty. Neither English nor Japanese, they have something of both and the combination is charming. Illustrated, printed, and published in Tókiô, they are Japanese to look at; yet when you come to read them you find that what you have in hand is for all the world like an English fairy tale. The material is genuine of course. These are Japanese folk-stories of the purest type, but the translators have Anglicized them in the telling, and they will go without much diffi. culty in harness with Perrault and Grimm."- Sat. rev., Mar. 26.

"Schaunard was one of the characters in Murger's 'Scènes de la vie de Bohême.' His real name was Alexandre Schanne, and he died but a few weeks ago, after a prosperous career as a toy-merchant. His book serves as a concordance to the Vie de Bohême,' and the effect it will produce on the reader will vary. For some the veil of poetry will be stripped away from the lives of Murger's heroes and heroines, leaving only sordidness and misery, while to others the gain will be great in the kind of realism and actuality' which the typical modern reader, as well as modern writer, loves."
