Andrews, W:

Yorkshire in olden times. Anthologia Græca. Select epigrams; ed., with rev. text, introd., tr., and notes, by J. W. Mackail.

"Mr. Mackail's selection numbers about five hundred. We may frankly say - and this, indeed, is about the only fault that we have to find with his work that this number might have been diminished without material loss, and with a certain advantage. He is sparing with his notes, especially where the criticism of the text is concerned, but not, we think, deficient; and, indeed, a faithful translation, such as he gives for he contrives to combine fidelity and grace in a rare degree is in itself a commentary. There is a biographical index, arranging the writers under five periods, and an introduction which contains some subtle and eloquently expressed criticism." — Spectator, Nov. 22.


Balsillie, D: The lesson of the Revolution.

These lessons of the Revolution are really innumerable, and we cannot discover anything very striking in what Mr. Basillie says, or in his manner of saying it."— Sat. rev., Nov. 22. Bandelier, A. F. A. The delight makers. Barrett, F. A smuggler's secret; a novel. Booth, W: In darkest England, and the way out.

"On the whole, this volume, in spite of its sensational title, and although it is marred by a foolish picture, will do good. It will be largely read, freely criticized, and will bring sufficient money to the Salvationist coffers to enable the Herbert Mills scheme of home colonization to be fairly tried. If this proves a success, as we think probable, it will suggest to boards of guardians the possibility of taking the city workhouses into the country, and of setting the paupers to work upon the land of all plans for dealing with helpless misery the best, if conducted under intelligent management and adequate supervision." - Athenæum, Nov. 1.

Brown, H. F. The Venetian printing press; an historical study; with facsimilies of early printing.

"A work of great merit and original research. The book is really a history of the Press laws of Venice, and their application to books and book sellers. Copy. right, Censorship, the Index, the Inquisition, and the Booksellers' Guild occupy three-fourths of the text,and nearly the whole of the appendix of documents, which extends over more than half the volume. These subjects are treated with a fullness and an accuracy which we should in vain look for elsewhere; and the authority for every statement, where not printed in extenso 'in the appendix, is carefully cited. The documents printed are of supreme interest and importance, not only for the history of literature, but of the great struggle between Venice and the Church, in which Paul Sarpi so vigorously, though unsuccessfully, maintained the

cause of the Republic, and at the same time that of the freedom of the Press and the freedom of thought. The most valuable and interesting part of the work is that which relates to the Index, the Censorship, and above all to the Inquisition."- Spectator, Jan. 10. Cloudesley, H.

Cooper, T: S. My life. 2 v.

"Mr. Cooper leaves the impression on the reader that he is sincere, industrious, and pious, and if he is a little unctuous and egotistical, he cherishes a genuine love for nature, although he takes narrow views of what is nature. It is due to him to say, too, that even when his taste is bad it is free from malevolence. Now and again he cruelly bores the reader. It must be admitted that his platitudes occasionally introduce good stories of famous men whom he met."

Crawfurd, O. Round the calendar in Portugal;


"Mr. Oswald Crawfurd is par excellence' 'the man who knows' about Portugal, and who has told us all we know of the country in which he has lived for twenty years. Many sides of the subject have been made attractive in his former works by his graphic, lucid, and elegant style; but the aspect of Portuguese life revealed by the present volume has a charm which surpasses them all. There are pages of this book which are not to be read without emotion, not only for their sheer beauty, but because of the longing they inspire to see some such lives of the poor, with the grace of music and dancing (the proud and pure dancing of these people), of simple enjoyment and laughter, of light-hearted content in them."- Academy, Dec. 13.

upon to depict the darkest scenes of human tragedy. And the 'genre' painter, it must be owned, comes admirably out of the ordeal. The artist that is in Mr. Dob son shows himself quite equal to this new task. There are few chapters in Carlyle's 'French Revolution' more striking, more full of movement, and of a vivid if lurid, light, and at the same time more excellently or dered in the midst of seeming disorder, than the chapter on Charlotte de Corday. Even so, however, Mr. Dobson may fairly be said to hold his own. His account may be read after the other, and still with pleasure."- Academy, Jan. 10.

Döllinger, J: J. I. von. Studies in European history; being academical addresses; tr. by M. Warre.

"Dr. von Döllinger has in an especial degree one of the great qualifications for an historian-that, namely, of conceiving of history as a living organism, as vigorously alive at the present day as ever, and whose future developments can only be conjectured by earnest study of the past. The English translation is, we think, very well done, the sense being clearly given, and German idioms judiciously avoided.". Saturday rev., Nov. 22. Drawing-room conjuring; tr., and ed., with notes, by L: Hoffmann. 1887.

Earle, Rev. J: English prose; its elements, history, and usage.

"Many of his detached criticisms are decidedly val uable, and his theory of the paragraph, if not exactly original, is useful for this generation, though as a matter of fact you will never make good paragraphs without good sentences. His extracts, which cover a great range, are also useful. First, Mr. Earle has written a really interesting book, and has shown more particularly how you can get valuable samples of illustrative English from the current periodicals of the day; secondly, he he has shown that a philologer need not be merely a pedant or an antiquary."- Saturday rev., Dec. 20.

"Mr. Fitzgerald's pace is seldom under four miles an hour; sometimes he positively runs, and as he barely indicates his way, even the experienced Londoner will have some difficulty in following him. The manner in which he hops in and out of the Temple and Gray's Inn is peculiarly irritating. His artists seem to have been thrown off the scent more than once, for there are sev eral illustrations to which no reference is to be found in the text." Athenæum, Dec. 6.

Gladstone, W: E. The impregnable rock of Holy Scripture; rev. and enl. from the Sunday School times.

"The book as a series of essays must be pronounced a failure but it will be read with pleasure by such as need only to be edified. A tone of deep and genuine religious conviction pervades the volume, and the style, which is always clear and direct, has a certain largeness and loftiness which may well be the outcome of the author's long habit of contact with great affairs." — Athenæum, Dec. 27.

Handbook of folk-lore.


"It is valuable to those who collect from oral traditions, and those who read rare witchcraft tales, works on magic, travels, lives of saints, and other printed manuscript sources. Probably no publication of the Folk-lore Society is so likely as this neat little volume to spread the knowledge of its processes and resuits."- Saturday rev., Nov. 22.

"The pages are full of striking pictures of Paris during these moving times; vivid sketches of the overflow markets, tumultuous streets. Occasional glimpses we have of Zola, Victor Hugo, Arsène Houssaye, and Flaubert. Interesting as these literary recollections are, far more remarkable are the exceedingly vivid pictures of life under the commune and during the Siege pictures that in all pictorial elements are marvellously strong, admirable in colour and life, and not less admirable at times by reason of the dramatic spirit that inspires them."- Sat. rev., Nov. 1. Goss, W. L. Recollections of a private; a story of the Army of the Potomac. Graham, H: D. The birds of Iona and Mull, 1852-70; with memoir, ed. by J. A. H.Brown.

"If Captain Marryat, instead of devoting his time after leaving the service to writing novels, and to learning the ways of Thames lightermen like Jacob Faithful from his house at Hammersmith, had wandered off to a desolate island and turned wild-fowler and ornithologist, he might well have written such a book as that which the literary executors of the late H. D. Graham have issued, under its sober title. Graham withdrew from the service to sail and shoot in the Wild West of Scotland. But he never lost his sailor habits, and parts of his story - for the book is a medley of 'fine confused reading,' partly autobiographic, partly sport and natural history-read like the opening chapters of a tale by the great sea novelist. The book

is profusely illustrated, and though abounding in bad drawing, the pictures are most life-like and humorous." Spectator, Dec. 13.
