"Mr. Bury's main object is to show that the Roman Empire was the political and spiritual bulwark of European civilization. It guarded Europe from Oriental invasions; it kept alive the traditions of Greek and Roman culture; it maintained European commerce; and it upheld an idea of order which was a permanent background in a theatre of changes and commotious. ... The tendency of the whole work is to resemble a series of essays dealing with a large subject under various He heads. Mr. Bury is more occupied with getting hold of his material than with its arrangement.

"In 1870 and 1871, appeared his first writings, and it was then that he began his famous private collection of antiquities, and secured for the Louvre the greater part of its series of the newly discovered Tanagra terra-cottas. His continual purchases and dealings with matters of practical archæology gave him a rare knowledge of works of art, in judging which he combined the knowledge of the archæologist with the taste of the born artist and the carefulness of the practical worker.
Reminiscences of a boyhood in the early part of
"A dweller, apparently, in Sleepy Hollow, he has let the world run on almost out of his sight, and has, it must almost seem, fallen back on the tales of his youth. ... He is at some pains to hide his identity; and the facts that his Christian name is Lancelot, that he was born early in the century in the north of Ireland, of a genuine Irish stock, adopted by an aunt, and educated in Edinburgh constitute practically all the information concerning himself he vouchsafes. A reader in a happy frame of mind may ramble on to the end amused at trivialities, suspicious of assertions, interested in his own despite. If we could accept as true all that is put before us, the borders of the partly known world would be infinitely enlarged, and societies for psychical research would have their hands full."-Sat. rev., Nov. 16.

There are of course sev. eral pieces that will not add to Lord Tennyson's poetic fame. But we doubt if ever a volume were published before by an octogenarian poet containing at least half a dozen perfect poems which betray no trace of the cooling of the poet's genius, and which would have been amongst the favorites of his most enthusiastic admirers, had they been published thirty years earlier." - Spectu.or Dec. 21.

"The history of the great commercial league of the Middle Ages was well worth writing. We cannot, however, say that we regard the present attempt towards supplying the want as altogether satisfactory.
