"It is a microcosm, an epitome of the Great Britain, mother of
nations from which it has sprung; and when in coming centuries the
dominion of Canada shall stretch from the Atlantic to the Pacific, the
historian of that coming time will turn with interest to Toronto of
Old,' and acknowledge with gratitude the loving enthusiasm with which
its author has chronicled the minute incidents of its infancy and
youth."-Prof. Daniel Wilson, in the Canadian Monthly.

"OLD LONDON-Messrs. Adams & Francis, of 59, Fleetstreet, have just published, under the title of Civitas Londinum, Ralph Agas,' a very curious and interesting survey of the cities of London and Westminster, the Borough of Southwark, and parts adjacent, which is attributed to Ralph Agas, and of which only two original copies are now known to exist. It is a survey of London, &c., in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, and has, by permission of the Corporation, been reproduced in fac-simile, by Edward J. Francis, from the copy preserved in the Library at Guildhall. The size of the map is 6 feet by 2 ft. 4 in. Mr. Overall, Librarian to the Corporation, has written, to accompany the map, a biographical account of Ralph Agas, and a critical and historical examination of the work, and of the several 'so-called' reproductions of it by Vertue and others."

reign of Queen Elizabeth which is now in the Guildhall Li-

of the metropolis has changed, but, except where streets have
been demolished for the sake of improvements, the ground-
plan of the city, properly so-called, remains almost the same,

curious, too, to note in how few instances the names have been
changed. The original is almost the oldest map of London
that is known, and it must have been at that time a great spe-
culation and enterprise for Ralph Agas, its maker. Regarding
this man, Mr. W. H. Overall, Librarian to the Corporation, has
written, as a preface to this publication, such a biography as
the materials at command enabled him to prepare. He has
also entered upon a critical comparison of this map with others
of various dates, with a view to show that this is a trustworthy
picture of London at the time it was published. This cleverly
xecuted reproduction has more than a mere antiquarian in-
terest. It shows us what was the condition, in many interesting
particulars, of the metropolis at one of the most renowned
periods of its history, and it affords to all citizens the means
of making investigations and researches that will be both pro-
fitable and entertaining. We heartily welcome such a useful
work."
