This is a very useful book, giving information almost indispensable to a well-bred Englishman, yet which comparatively few possess. We can scarcely take up an historical work of any extent, or a newspaper, without reading of Public Officers and appointments, of which we have little or no information. How many are there who could correctly define the following offices ?-Avener, Yeoman Hanger, Yeoman Bedgoer, ete., or even the better known offices of Almoner, Groom of the Stole, etc.

Had such a volume been in the hands of the editor of the "Commerce," a leading French newspaper, be would not, the other day, have made the following ludicrous blunder respecting the Chiltern Hundreds."Lord Stanley, Minister for the Colonies, has accepted the title of Lord Chiltern Hundreds, which is incompatible with that of member of the Elective Chamber, because it is attached to the household of the Queen."

The most elaborate and useful work of the kind ever published. It contains upwards of 30,000 armorial bearings, and incorporates all that have hitherto been given by Guillim, Edmondson, Collins, Nisbet, Berry, Robson, and others; besides many thousand names which have never appeared in any previous work. This volume, in fact, in a small coinpass, but without abridgment, contains more than four ordinary quartos.

This book is interesting to every man in society. The contents not being merely of the day, there is no danger of its becoming obsolete, but like its prototype Edmondson, it must always remain a library book.
