Official letters, 1710-22; with introd., etc., by R. A. Brock. 1882. 96T+8v8 Steel, F. A., and Temple, R: C. Wide-awake stories; coll. of tales told by little children in the Panjab and Kashmir.
"A charming volume of stories admirably fitted for the entertainment of children, and at the same time con. taining much valuable information for students. Its contents naturally resemble those of the collections previously made by Miss Frere, Miss Stokes, the Rev. Lal Behari Day, and Mr. Damant; but its authors justly claim for it the merit of special genuineness, inasmuch as 'it has been mostly procured at first-hand from the lips of purely village children, who have never been inside a school,' and whose complete freedom from any European influence is beyond all question.'" — Academy, Feb. 14.

"Is there true international law?" Professor Law. rence asks in his first essay, and he argues that there is; half of Mr. Stephen's little work is devoted to showing that there is no such thing, and the other half to an illustrative explanation of what the rules really are which G. P. Macdonell in the look like international law." Academy, Feb. 7.
Stepniak, pseud. Russia under the tzars;
dered into English by W: Westall. AB ST4 "A book about Russia, by a Russian who has been in the thick of the Revolutionary movement, who has edited a clandestine journal, and while objecting to the name frankly avows himself a Nihilist. It may be defined as being at once a history, a description, and an apology, a history of the rise of the Russian despotism, a description of the Russian revolutionary movement, and a Nihilist's apologia pro vitâ suâ.' For all who would form an adequate idea of the present condition of Russia, gauge its capacity for war, or attempt to forecast its future, 'Stepniak's' book is indispensable." Spectator, Apr. 23.

Captain Telfer is a good biographer. He is lucid and conscientious; he never proses; and his book is provided with an excellent index.". St. James's budget, Mar. 28. Thatcher, Capt. M. P.

Bent, J. T. The Cyclades; or, Life among the insular Greeks. AQC99-B4 "A better book in its way we have not read for long. Mr. Bent has had the luck and skill to discover a mine of various interests in the Isles of Greece, and he has worked the vein with admirable thoroughness. Every page is rich in living popular antiquities, he discourses in notes of the cold remains of the past - statues, coins, vases, buildings, inscriptions, the great Naxian unfinished statue, still lying half created, half imbedded in marble, in the quarry. This work is thirtyfour feet long, and was to represent a bearded Apollo. In Lesbos fire is still carried from place to place in the narthex of Prometheus. The simple mythical invention holds its own in the age of Bryant and May. The archaic lion of Keos, nine yards long, is not less interesting than the unfinished Naxian Apollo; so ancient is the lion that it seems to have given rise to a myth. These are but specimen bricks from the house, examples of the great and lively interest of 'The Cyclades,' a work equally desirable for the archæologist, the historian, the geographer, the student of folk-lore, and the curious traveller."

The scene is in the dales of Cumberland, where a number of original people are got together and some very horrible events occur. ... The story has an attraction which it is not easy to describe. The occasional views of society in that roystering emancipated time among the northern towns, and the whole air of cold, wild, mountain weather in the Cumbrian vales are indicated with very unusual skill and success. The novel is full of human nature."- Pall Mall budget, May 1.

A wild, weird, strange romance, it overflows with curious touches of naturalis. tic description, and luminous glimpses of what may yet be when civilisation bas sunk forever into a wide sea of renewed barbarism.

The book is pervaded not only by a ghastly picturesque ness, but also by a burning conviction that what is written down is essentially true, and the impressiveness of this combination is not lost by sifting through two languages. From a literary standpoint there is occa sionally too much of the preacher, but no artistic defect greatly weakens the impression of originality and searching power." — Critic, May 9.
