"A medley of typical stories 'which are partly reminisences and partly traditions, rescued from the borderland of history and private biography. But the reader of these pleasant pages will not ransack them for historical materials. He will find them crammed with details of familiar, convivial, military, or diplomatic life, with incident and anecdote accumulating through a varied and eventful career, and will obtain no more than the kaleidoscopic view of men and things which the author undertakes to provide."- Athenæum, Mar. 15.

Le travail de M. Marx montre en même temps la richesse si peu exploitée de l'antiquité grecque au point de vue de ces recherches, d'ordre assez divers, que l'on réunit aujourd'hui sous le nom de folk-lore." H. Gaidoz in Rev. critique, 16-23 sept.

Mellick, A. D., Jr. The story of an old farm; or, Life in New Jersey in the 18th century; with a genealogical appendix.

"This was begun simply as a genealogical compilation, and developed into one of the most interesting and readable books in New Jersey history ever published.

In following Johannes Moelich from Bendorf-on-the Rhine to his farm up in Bedminster township, Somerset county, and thence tracing his descendants through the Revolutionary War and down to the present day, the author discovered many scattered treasures. One chapter that is especially noteworthy is that in which Mr. Mellick treats of the Hessians."

"In his new book Mr. Lane Poole has seen a capital theme for a boys' book and has worked it to successful issues. Piracy has always been an attractive and exciting subject; and Moorish piracy with its thrilling adven tures, its long rakish-looking vessels, its many colored crews and Christian slaves, has moved Christendom from the times of Barbarossa and Lepanto to the times when American tars, and American diplomacy put an end to it forever in the War with Tripoli."

He has wisely restricted himself to those anecdotes which deal with English literature and English writers, and he has arranged his material much better than Ma lone. He has prefixed to his book an excellent introduction, and he has added a chronological table, brief biographies of the persons mentioned, and a number of useful notes.

Weyman, S. J. The house of the wolf. (In Cornhill mag., 1888-89.)

"A brilliant affair; the ideal historical romance; in fact a type of literature but too rare. St. Bartholo mew's eve is the moment chosen, and is described with uncommon skill and energy. The general presentation of the old place in the country and its people is also excellent. Some of the situations are dramatic and moving, and the play of action and incident is spirited, quick, and clear. In a word, the rendering of epoch, speech, and locality is first rate. The style is marked by finish and lightness."- Athenæum, May 10.

But there is no doubt that he occupies a position far removed from that of the average story-teller.

their relationships and distinctions, and to find a gen-

tempted as Von Sybel attempts it in this volume.
It is certainly an attempt most interesting, and accord-
ing to a method which should in future find many able
representatives, in which far more depends on the talent
of the author than in usual histories.
The illustra-



tions, numerous and of good size, are with few excep. tions executed according to the latest method of mechanically reproducing photographs. This is the first history of ancient art which makes use to any extent of a photographic process for illustration. The result is strikingly interesting.

So far as the Franks are concerned, it may be said, after considering both sides of the question so ably dis cussed, that in all that relates to the administration of justice and to the character of the laws we find a very strong Germanic element among the Franks of the Merovingian age.
