GILL, Assistant Examiner in Chemistry at the University of London, late Teacher of Chemistry in University College School, 100 Illustrations. Small 8vo. 4s. 6d.

Nature.

A Synoptical History of England,
combining the advantages of the Narrative and Tabular Form; with a Comparative View of Contemporaneous Sovereigns and Events in General History, from the Earliest Records to the Present Time. Oblong 8vo.
"It is scarcely praise to say of a book that it is an excellent cram' book; but, as examinations are a necessary evil, and cramming must be done, and may even be of some real use if it is done judiciously, it is as well to have efficient instruments. The plan of this book is to put in three columns 'principal events, observations' (which, we may say, are exceedingly good, both tersely written and judicious), and contemporary events.' Thus
a glance will give the reader an excellent idea of any period, England being taken, for the time being, as the centre. The book is likely to be so useful that we should be glad to see the author extend his plan to the histories of other countries."-Spectator.
