Unfortunately for Mr. Dalton, Ed. ward Cecil was never the centre of anything. He was a good, honest soldier of considerable military abilities, and undoubted courage.

He showed skill and bra. very in a subordinate post in the Dutch war. The consequence is that much even of the biographical part of the book is dreary reading. Details of campaigns in the Netherlands at the end of the 16th century bang very loosely on Cecil, and are out of place anywhere except in a history of the Netherlands or in a biography of Maurice, whose skill they illustrate. Uuluckily Mr. Dalton has attempted not merely to write the life, but also, the times of Sir Edward Cecil. Whether he might be a historian if he gave time enough to acquire the nec. essary knowledge, it would be difficult to affirm or deny. That his kuowledge is inadequate is beyond question.
