folios are immaculate, and cannot now be duplicated. He collected the early editions which followed the folios and illustrated them with autographs and portraits. He had also a taste for the early English drama, and for the French, Spanish, and Italian dramatic writers and early chroniclers. The department of early voyages and travels he also took in, and indulged in DeBry, Purchas, and Hakluyt. Besides these acquisitions, he made a scholar's general library. His widow, in order that the library might be kept together and might perpetuate the name of her husband, in 1873 sold the entire collection to the Boston Public Library at a nominal price, on the conditions that it should be kept in a room by itself; that no book should be taken from the library; that a catalogue should be prepared ; and that it should be known as the " Barton Collection." In 1880, a catalogue of the Shakespeare portion of the library was published, as Part I.; and now Part II., called "Miscellaneous," is issued, which includes all of the Collection not Shakespearian in its character. It is a royal octavo volume of 631 pages, and is printed in a typography befitting the subject matter. Mr. James M. Hubbard prepared the part relating to Shakespeare, and Mr. José Francisco Carret has prepared the miscellaneous part. The subjective and cross references are very full. Titles of books, dramas, poems, etc., appear in the alphabetical arrangement, as well as authors, making the work a valuable contribution to bibliography. The work is "Published by the Trustees," and presumably may be bought.

"So Greif makes up his mind that he must break with Hilda. How well she plays the part of true-hearted womanhood in this period of trial, and how Rex's friendship is put to the severest test that can befall an impetuous nature to come unscathed from the ordeal, the reader may, perhaps, prefer to discover. As a story it has many and decisive attractions, and it is marked by that extraordinary command of resources which one has come to expect from Mr. Crawford's later works." Boston Beacon.

WEBSTER'S UNABRIDGED DICTIONARY
THE STANDARD AND THE BEST.
"AN INVALUABLE COMPANION IN EVERY SCHOOL, AND AT EVERY FIRESIDE."
The latest edition has 118,000 Words in its vocabulary, about 3,000 more than any other American Dictionary. It contains 3,000 Illustrations in the body of the work (nearly three times the number found in any other American Dictionary), and these are repeated and classified at the end of the work.
WEBSTER IS STANDARD AUTHORITY
In the GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, and with the U. S. SUPREME COURT. It is recommended by the State Sup'ts of Schools in 36 States, and by the leading College Presidents of the U. S. and Canada. It is the only Dictionary that has been selected in making State Purchases.
CHIEF JUSTICE WAITE, of the U. S. Supreme Court, says: Webster's Unabridged Dictionary is recognized as Standard
HON. GEORGE BANCROFT, the Historian says: Webster is superior to all others as a household Dictionary.
THE NEW YORK TRIBUNE says: It is recognized as the most useful existing "word-book" of the English Language all over the world.
Nearly all the School Books published in this country are avowedly based on Wesbter. Four leading firms state that they publish annually 17,000,000 copies, and to this number may be added the publications of nearly all the other School Book Publishers. It is well within bounds to say that 25,000,000 School Books, based on Webster, are published annually. The children of the country are thus educated by Webster.
