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, deticient; 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 in. dex, 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.

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 coloniza. tion 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." -- Athenwum, Nov. 1. Boutell, L: H: Alexander Hamilton; the con

part.” – Preface. 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 Presslaws 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 sub. jects 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 be. tween 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

“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." Crandall, C: H: Representative sonnets by Amer

Many sides of the subject have been made atiractive in his former works by his graphic, lu. cid, and elegant style; but the aspect of Portuguese life revealed by the present volume has a charm which sur. passes 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. Davenport, R. Works; ed. by A. H. Bullen.
(Old Eng. plays.) “Of Davenport himself, nothing is known; but he ranks with quite the best of the latest division of so. called Elizabethan dramatists. The work is worthy

" Mr. De Leon's frankly stated views on the advan. tages of slavery are fair warning to the reader that he must look for strong prejudices throughout: but if these prejudices and the hearty self-praise that adds point to them are duly allowed for, the volumes will be found instructive as well as entertaining."- Athenæum,

" There are a few contemporary writers of whom one always thinks as belonging to the past rather than to the present, and such a writer is Mr. Austin Dobson. There is in all that he does a certain measure and re. straint, a dainty accuracy and precision, a kind of ele. gant simplicity and unaffectedness, and such character. istics are rather those of the classic periods of litera. ture than of our own days of storm and stress. ... Mr. Dobsou here is like an exquisite 'genre' painter called.
upon to depict the darkest scenes of human tragedy. And the 'genre' painter, it must be owned, comes admi. rably 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.

tory; 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 de. velopments 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,

tory, 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.” – Saturduy rev., Dec. 20. Edersheim, A. The Bible history. 4 v. Ellis, A. J. English dialects, their sounds and

“ 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

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 editied. A tone of deep and genuine religious conviction pervades the volume, and the style, which is always clear and direct, has a certain large. ness and loftiness which may well be the outcome of the author's long habit of contact with great affairs.”

Occasional glimpses we have of Zola, Victor Hugo, Arsène Houssaye, and Flaubert. Interesting as these literary recol. lections 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 mar. vellously strong, admirable in colour and life, and not less admirable at times by reason of the dramatic spirit
that inspires them.” – Sat. rer., Nov. 1. Goss, W. L. Recollections of a private; a story

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 noreliist. The book is profusely illustrated, and though abounding in bad drawing, the pictures are most life.like and bumorous.”
Spectator, Dec. 13. Gunter, A. C. Miss Nobody of Nowhere; a
novel. " A confused jumble of wild and extravagant inci. dent through which painful progress is made, lightened towards the close by frequent skipping, as it becomes evident nothing can be gained by conscientious attention. Some people might bay the style was vulgar.” – Sat.
