the Olympic approval of the Grand Old Man. In this case it is peculiarly appropriate for has not Mr. Gladstone represented through all his career the very sentiments to which this German authoress pins her arguments? Shall woman be allowed political equality when she has already won her independent recognition as a wage-earner? That is the question. And it is this that Frau Crepaz answers with an hundred and thirty pages of sonorous negative." - Critic, Apr. 8.

Cunliffe, J: W. The influence of Seneca on Eliz

abethan tragedy.

"His account of Seneca is most interesting, and shows deep research. At the same time we cannot without further evidence accept all his theories." Westminster rev., April.

Dana, Mrs. W: S. How to know the wild flowers; a guide to [their] names, haunts, and habits; illust.

"She quotes with excellent choice from the volumes of many of our favorite authors, and by so doing has helped to give to our woodland sights and sounds that charm of literary association which counts for so much, and of which there is as yet in our new world compar atively so little."- Critic, Apr. 22. Dickinson, G. L. Revolution and reaction in modern France. 1892.

"We know of no book by which a person of intelligence, unacquainted with French history, could so easily be made to understand the causes and the gen eral drift of the French Revolution. In spite of its shortness, the book is alive with interest, and in reading it we experience none of that feeling of oppression which belongs to the abstract."— Spectator, Jan. 21. Do the dead return? a record of experiences in spiritualism; by a clergyman of the Church of England.

Druyfus, F. C. L'arbitrage international; avec une préface de F. Passy. 1892.

"Le livre est d'une lecture attrayante, bien nourri de faits, riche en pensées généreuses, en considérations souvent lumineuses, ordinairement sages, présentées avec goût, sans phrases pompeuses.” - Revue de droit int., v. 24.

Everett, C: C. The Gospel of Paul.

"We do not find ourselves able to side with him against Professors Pfleiderer, Reuss, and Weizsäcker, or Matthew Arnold, but only the last of these four writers can be compared with Professor Everett for the felicity with which his view is presented." Literary world, May 6.

Ewbank, J: W. Picturesque views of Edinburgh; prefixed, an Historical sketch, by J. Browne. 1825.

Fields, Mrs. A. A. Whittier; notes of his life and of his friendships.

"Whittier appears very life-like in these pages, which are full of quotations from his letters and conversations, and contain many reminiscenes of his own early life. The charm of the poet's personality is every. where evident, in his opinions of books, of events, or of friends." Critic, Apr. 22.

Fowler, W: W. The city-state of the Greeks and Romans.

"Of the original townships of Greece and Italy Mr. Fowler has written a very lucid and instructive account. The subjects covered are very wide, and the book contains a great deal of precise, careful, and conscientious work." Academy, Mar. 25.

Gordon, Sir A. The Earl of Aberdeen.

"A most adequate vindication of a much under-estimated statesman."- Athenæum, Feb. 25.

Green, J: R: Short history of the English people; ed. by Mrs. J. R. Green and Miss K. Norgate; illust. 2 v.

"There are cuts on nearly every page, and frequent full-page coloured fac-similes from manuscripts. The page representing The fauna of Ireland,' and the 'Cor. onation of a king,' in gold and colours, can hardly be surpassed for combined interest and value to the stu dent."- Sat. rev., July 16.

Horatius Flaccus, Q. Horatian echoes; trans. of the Odes, by J: O. Sargent, with introd. by O. W. Holmes.

Howells, W: D. The world of chance; a novel. "The insistance of the book is upon the extremely large part which apparent luck, and luck only, plays in the literary world. Concerned as it is with a young author, the publisher, and book reviewers, it is full of interest from first to last for literary people." - Literary world, Apr. 8.

James, H: The real thing; and other tales.

"Such stories may keep ordinary people from being artists or writers, but professionals may be indignant with Mr. James for telling their secrets. Yet what higher tribute can be paid imaginative writers than such indignation over a supposed reality." - Literary world, Apr. 8.

Keane, M. The towers and temples of ancient Ireland. 1867.

Keltie, J: S. The partition of Africa.

"A succinct and careful summary of the events of the last few years, preceded by a sketch of the earlier relations of Africa with the more civilized inhabitants of other continents." Sat. rev., Mar. 11.

Lang, A. Homer and the epic.

"In spite of the flings with which Mr. Lang amuses himself he is, we think, scrupulous in the more essential duty of stating his adversaries' objections fairly and fully. The most valuable part of the treatise, that into which Mr. Lang throws all his heart, all his literary acuteness, and all his dialectical skill, is the detailed account of the separate books, defending with few excep tions, the passages which the higher criticism would tear away as the work of anonymous botchers. Here, of course, he falls foul, in a friendly way, of his Homeric collaborator, Mr. Walter Leaf, whose 'Companion to the Iliad,' published last year, contained some of the heresies which Mr. Lang regards as exploded and almost antiquated.". - Sat. rev., Mar. 25. Lethbridge, Sir R. The golden book of India.

"His intention has been to be the Debrett of India rather than the Burke, because there is little attempt to give genealogies. The page of introduction on the modern or British titles of an Oriental form in India will clear up a good many doubts in the minds of those who have been confused by them, and the glossary of ti tles is pleasant reading.” . Athenæum, Mar. 11.

Library atlas of modern geography; with gazetteer, indexes, and illust. descriptive text. Littledale, H. Essays on Lord Tennyson's Idylls of the King.

Lock, W. John Keble; a biography.

"So much has appeared of late years regarding the history of the Tractarian movement that it would have needed singular skill in writing to give much interest to 'John Keble a biography.' As it is, Mr. Lock's book is largely taken up with telling what has been more vividly told elsewhere. The sketch of Keble's admirable work in his parish is the best portion of the volume."Athenæum, Mar. 11.

"He has shown his familiarity with the Cape frontier and the Zulu country in more than one exciting story, and his latest novel, a tale of the Kaffir war does not fall below the others in point of interest. Two or three of the chapters will be hard reading for any one who shrinks from stories of savage cruelty and revenge.". Literary world, Nov. 19.

Murray, D: C. Time's revenges; a novel. Noble, J. A. The sonnet in England; and other essays.

"The Sonnet in England' is, in fact, a review of a book published nearly fourteen years ago, the late Mr. Main's Treasury of English sonnets,' a work which was at the time a useful, although extremely uncritical compendium or storehouse of sonnets. The rest of the volume is occupied by five short essays, the best of which undoubtedly is that on Leigh Hunt, which gives us a higher impression of Mr. Noble's powers than anything else that we have seen."— Sat. rev., Mar. 18.

Norris, W: E: A deplorable affair.

"The principle characters are too shadowy to arouse much interest, and what is told of the heroine does not render her particularly engaging. But the fictitious narrator is enough of a personage to atone for any defects in the tale he tells. He is an old bookseller in a small watering-place, who in the course of his story reveals with a delightfully unconscious humour his own med. dlesome and garrulous nature." - Athenæum, Mar. 18. Owen, M.. A. Old rabbit, the Voodoo, and other

sorcerers; with introd. by C: G. Leland. "Considered as humourous literature Old rabbit' cannot, perhaps, rank with Uncle Remus,' but from the point of view of the folk-lorist it has a far higher value. Uncle Remus' is saturated with the modern plantation nigger; in Miss Owen's book the red Indian medicine man is predominant, and there is also a considerable tincture of the aboriginal witch-doctor." Academy, Apr. 8.

Palgrave, F. T. Amenophis; and other poems, sacred and secular. 1892.


"Mr. Palgrave is not seen at his best in his secular It is in the region of thought that his poems. strength is to be found. He is at home with the prob lems that lie on the borderland of religion and philoso phy, the problems of doubt and faith and hope, of world weariness and world-despair. His hymns have not, indeed, the delicate beauty of Miss Rossetti's religious lyrics; yet there are several that for dignity and simplicity of phrase are far beyond compare with the dog. gerel that mostly fills our hymn-books."- Academy, Jan. 14.

Pater, W. Plato and Platonism.

Mr. Pater has forsaken the pleasant themes which have made his books dear to a host of admirers for a more technical and scholastic subject; but he has not left behind him the charm of style, and the attractive manner of handling his subject. But the change is, in fact, more apparent than real. Mr. Pater, like the shepherd in the idyl, is not particularly in love with

'heights and cold, the splendour of the hills'; and it is the romantic element in Plato which most strongly appeals to him. It is this touch of Philistinism, if Philistinism it may be called to lay stress on what Plato would consider merely accessory and to almost disregard what to him was essential, which is most characteristic of the book, and gives it the stamp of a study in literature rather than of a treatise on philosophy."— Athenæum, Mar. 18.

Raine, J. York. (Historic towns.)

"The pre-Christian history of the city as Raine has given it, is satisfactory. The evidences that have come down to us are so scanty, and there has been so much wild guessing by the older race of antiquaries, that if the author had concluded his labors with the permanent establishment of the northern archbishopric we could not but have been grateful. He is by no means an indiscriminate admirer of the medieval Church. The picture of York in the old days is most effective." Athenæum, Mar. 18.

Robinson, E: F. Early history of coffee houses in England; with some account of the first use

of coffee, and a bibliography.

"Should be read, more especially as the illustrations of tokens, etc., are extremely curious."— Athenæum, Apr. 8.

Robinson, J: R. The princely Chandos; a me

moir of J. Brydges, Paymaster-General to the forces abroad, 1705-11, afterwards Duke of Chandos.

"The duke's career remains as a very typical example of what the life of a very lucky official man might be in the days of Queen Anne. Mr. Brydges went into the office of Paymaster of the Forces Abroad a man of undoubtedly very limited means. Yet when he left office he possessed a fortune of not less than six or seven hundred thousand pounds. His biographer is compelled to acknowledge that all this money can not have been honestly made. The making of the fortune fills the first and shorter division of the book; the second, and longer, is occupied with the spending of it. It is characteristic of the time, that, as he was lavish in spending, nobody thought the worse of him for his peculations." - Sat. rev., Mar. 25.

Rod, F. La vie privée de Michel Tessier. 4e éd. "C'est un roman bien fait, prestement écrit, très attachant, où apparaît une rare dextérité d'analyse morale. Il ne songe pas à excuser son héros. Et, de fait, ce héros est indéfendable. Ce n'est pas à lui que nous nous intéressons, mais à M. Rod, l'habile anatomiste qui opère sous nos yeux et qui dissèque avec un art subtile la vilaine âme égoïste et faible de ce faux honnête homme."— Bibl. univ., mars. Ross-of-Bladensburg, Maj. E. J.

"Mr. Reynolds has fairly surprised us by his demonstration of the amount of actual textual editing that the book stood in need of. Singer had already made one or two manifestly right conjectures, but nothing more had been done. Mr. Arber's neat little volume was what it professed to be, a reprint and not a critical edition. Mr. Reynolds has found a good deal left for him to do, and he has done it skilfully and piously. It is a book to be known by every one who makes any study of the political controversies of the Civil War and Commonwealth period, or of English political philosophy." ."- Sat. rev., Dec. 10.

Seventy years of life in the Victorian era; a travelling record in Australia, New Zealand, and America, etc.; by a physician.

"This would seem to be the physician's first attempt at authorship. We hope that it may not be his last for his present effort is interesting and improving to persons of either sex and of any age. His experiences, whether gained in professional practice in London, or before Sebastopol, or in travelling on the continent of Europe, or round the world through Australia, New Zealand, and the United States, are worth a good deal." -Athenæum, Mar. 11.

Snorri (or Snorro) Sturleson (or Sturluson). The

stories of the Kings of Norway, called The round world, Heimskringla; [trans.] by W: Morris and E. Magnússon. Vol. 1. "The most interesting part of the book describes the contest of Christianity, and the Pagan rites of blood sacrifice and horse-eating. The splendid sea fight of Olaf the Swede and Olaf Tryggvison is nobly told, with Sat. rev., Mar. 11. the victory of Earl Eric." In the vine Somerville, E. E., and Ross, M. country. "From Connemara to the Gironde is the change of scene presented to readers of "Through Connemara in a governess cart,' but there is no change in the spirit of the adventure. The natives and customs of the Médoc are set forth with the diverting skill and pleasing humour that is in the Irish book, and the illustrations of one of the writers are as spirited as of old." -Sat.rev., Mar. 18.

Stanley, H: M.

Stevenson, R. L:

Slavery and the slave trade in

Landmarks in ancient Dover,

"Il est probable qu'il écrivit son traité vers 1380. Il eut dès son apparition une grande vogue; on en fit de nombreuses copies que les chatelaines et les ménagères de ce temps-là avaient entre les mains, puis on Pimprima et réimprima jusque dans les premières années du 17e siècle. Les mets de Taillevent ne sont pas très délicats, mais en revanche ils sont trés épicés. C'est un peu la cuisine romaine au temps de Trimaleion et des empereurs, c'est surtout celle du moyen âge, où l'on use et abuse du garingal, du poivre, du coriandre, et de cent autres ingrédients qui devaient mettre en feu le palais et tout le tempérament.”

Trenholm, W. L. The people's money.

"It first explains what money is and what functions it performs in the social economy, and then goes on to describe the various kinds of money that have at differ. ent times been used in the world, with particular refer. ence to those now in use in the United States. The au thor is a monometallist, but he gives little time to dis. cussion of that subject, though he repeatedly calls at. tention to the necessity of a uniform monetary stand. ard."— Critic, Apr. 8.

Triggs, O. L. Browning and Whitman; a study in democracy.

"In exposing the positive qualities of Whitman and even Browning he is fairly successful; but as to their relative importance he is less satisfactory. The book is, however, in its own way, good, being intelligent and suggestive. If read in the critical spirit it will afford satisfaction and instruction, even where it does not con. vince." Academy, Apr. 15.

Uzanne, O. Bouquinistes et bouquineurs; physiologie des quais de Paris du Pont Royal au Pont Sully.

"An amusing sketch of the out-door book trade of Paris. The illustrations are as slight as the text, but they will preserve to posterity many curious types characteristic of the quays of Paris in this last decade of the 19th century.' "? - Nation, Apr. 6.
