Four of the volumes were written in the sixteenth century, the name of the tran-

show that the codex which he transcribed was a very ancient one. The other two
volumes as well as some leaves at the beginning of Vol. I were supplied in a more
modern hand (about 1780), but in style and writing nearly uniform with the older

volumes, so as to make the MS. a complete, handsome and valuable one. 100 AN ARABIC-ENGLISH VOCABULARY of the Colloquial Arabic of Egypt. By Socrates Spiro, royal 8vo. sd.

Cairo, 1895 This is a very valuable work, indispensable to residents and others in Egypt who wish really to learn the language of the country.

* Mr. Spiro modestly calls the book a . vocabulary'; but it may well claim the title of a dictionary, as it contains most of the words which the speaker of Egyptian Arabic is likely to hear.

“ What makes the book so peculiarly valuable are the numerous idioms and slang phrases included in it which will be looked for in vain elsewhere. They are, ņevertheless, of the very essence of the colloquial language, and in dealing with the fellahin, an ignorance of them is a constant source of misunderstanding.

** The usefulness of the book is further increased by the lists of weights and measures, civil and military grades, &c., which are prefixed to it.”-A. H. Sayce.
