A translation of a translation; in fact, M. Schwabe's French version in an English drers. An English translation of the Talmud, or of the two Talınudim, should be adapted for students to whom the original is inaccessible, and who are unacquainted with the Ara. maan dialects and Rabbinical literature, and for readers of this class a rendering of the Genara should be ac. companied by fuil and exhaustive comment, illustrative, and explanatory; ... the translator must act the part of the guide and cicerone. He must lead the novice through the involved maze of Talınudic argument; he must ex. pound the allegories and explain the allusions, indicate the references, and clear up the thousand-and-one diffi. culties. There is nothing of all this in M. Schwabe's rendering; the needful students's apparatus is altogether wanting. We regret to speak disparagingly of this the first attempt ever made to English any portion of the Talmud, the more so as a good translation of the Yeru. whalmi would prove of no little value to all interested in the history and antiquities of the Jews." — Spectator,

vif•36345 ** The tales all deal with the mere brute passions of man; but while not adapted for juvenile perusal, are never coarse, and difficult moral problems are handled with a vigour and a tine perception that are beyond praise. The point of view, of course, is absolutely Italian; but this renders the book only the more interesting, because it faithfully reflects the mental and moral attitude of a nation whose character English people are apt to study far too little, an omission that often lands them in serions errors.

VE-D222 Debidour, A. L'impératrice Théodora. 50.134

“Rehabilitation historique d'une femme universellement décriée.” Préface.

“Il résulte de la critique à laquelle M. Debidour sou. met ces allégations qui, sous l'intiuence du libelle intitulé • Anecdota,' à quel a été attaché le nom de Procope, on a singulièrement calomnié la femme dans l'impératrice, et qu'un ouvrage de Procope, absolument incontestable, celui-là, fait l'éloge de Théodora. Quelques personnes penseront peut-être que le professeur de Nancy a poussé un peu loin la réhabilitation de l'impériale aventurière; mais il est certain que, sur bien des points, il a rétabli la réalité des faits et défendu avec succès la vérité contre les licences historiques qu'a prises le théâtre." — A.

7NE:5D7 Its chief object is to assist the student of medireval English history to obtain a distinct idea of the great no. bles who formed the ruling class in early days. While family history has not been neglected, special attention has been given to the offices held by peers, and to the personal characteristics of each individual. In order to keep the work within limits, barons, in the common acceptation of the word, have been excluded; but some description is given of every duke, marquis, earl, and viscount from the Conquest to the present time.”
