Meredithians owe a debt of gratitude to the publishers for issuing this book in a binding uniform with Mr. Meredith's other works.

William Heinemann. 28. 6d.

The second volume of Mr. Pinero's dramatic works, con. taining, in addition to "The Profligate" itself, an introductory essay by Mr. Malcom C. Salaman, and an excellent reproduction of Mr. T. Mordecai's portrait of the dramatist.

John Pas-Plus. By the Marquis of Lorne. Paper, pp.

237. Is.

A volume of the Railway Automatic Library. The Marquis of Lorne must write something better than this if he wishes to gain any reputation as a novelist.

Herrick's Works. Edited by Alfred W. Pollard. Two

volumes. 12mo, pp. 318, 356. London: Lawrence & Bullen.

Messrs. Lawrence & Bullen have inaugurated their Muses' Library by a new edition of Herrick's poems, “The Hesperides" and "Noble Numbers," under the editorship of Mr. Alfred W. Pollard and with a preface by Mr. Swinburne.

SCIENCE AND MEDICINE. Homilies of Science. By Dr. Paul Carus. 12mo, pp. 327.

Chicago: The Open Court Publishing Co. $1.50.

These brief essays, chiefly upon religious thought and practical ethics, first appeared as editorials in the Open Court, a remarkably strong and original Chicago publication devoted to advanced thought. While these essays are opposed to some of the teachings of dogmatic Christianity, they are full of the spirit of the highest Christian morality, and are not in any true sense antagonistic to religious faith. They are construct ive rather than destructive.

FICTION. Mr. Isaacs: A Tale of Modern India. By F. Marion

Crawford. 12mo, pp. 320. New York: Macmillan & Co. $1

With all Mr. Marion Crawford's new stories appearing so frequently and maintaining so high a standard of merit, his original tale, "Mr. Isaacs," holds the first place in the list. His publishers, the Messrs. Macmillan, have been obliged to issue a new edition of it. Philip; or, The Mollies' Secret: A Tale of the Coal

Regions. By Patrick Justin McMahon. 12mo, pp. 578. Philadelphia: H. L. Kilner & Co. $1.25.

This is a tale of the Pennsylvania coal regions based upon exciting incidents in the Molly Maguire troubles, and written from the moral and religious point of view of the Catholic Church,

Geological Sketches at Home and Abroad. By Archibald

Geikie, LL.D., F.R.S. 12mo, pp. 342. New York:
Macmillan & Co. $1.50.

Dr. Archibald Geikie is director-general of the geological surveys of Great Britain and Ireland, and is a bright and ac. complished writer as well as a distinguished scholar. This volume is a collection of his fugitive essays and writings upon geological topics, and it covers a wide, terrestrial range. It deals with English, Scotch, French, Scandinavian, Swiss, and American geological topics, and is altogether a readable and charming volume.

The Story of the Hills: A Book about Mountains for

General Readers. By Rev. H. N. Hutchinson, B. A.,
F.G.S. 12mo, pp. 370. New York. Macmillan &
Co. $1.50.

Like Dr. Geikie, Rev. H. N. Hutchinson, F.G.S., is also a distinguished British geologist. He dedicates his book to all who love mountains and hills. It deals with “The Mountains as they Are" in Part I. and “How the Mountains were Made" in Part II. It has a number of illustrations, and is a book which could be read by all young people with great profit and interest. Moreover, it is just the book for intelligent travellers who are making a sojourn in the Alps, the Rockies, or any other mountain region.

A North Country Comedy. By M. Betham-Edwards.

12mo, pp. 347. Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Co. $1.25.

A new English novel in Lippincott's copyrighted foreign series. A conventional English society story, with a little more of incident and movement than usual A Strange Elopement. By W. Clark Russell. 12mo, pp.

216. New York: Macmillan & Co. $1.

This is another of Clark Russell's swinging, readable sea tales, the centre of interest being an elopement at sea in an open boat. The Heiress of Greenhurst. By Mrs. Ann S. Stevens.

Paper, 12mo, pp. 430. Philadelphia: T. B. Peterson &

Bros. 25 cents. Tales of Two Countries. By Alexander L. Kielland.

London: Osgood & McIlvaine. 38. 6d.

English readers already owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. William Archer for introducing them to the works of Ibsen and Maeterlinck. That debt is now increased by this volume of short stories by one whom Mr. Archer places on an equal eminence in Norwegian literature with Ibsen and Björnson. Kielland, Mr. Archer's preface tells us, came to the front some twenty years later than either of these writers, but he is already the author of a goodly number of books, both long novels and short stories, which we hope we shall soon have an opportunity of reading. Each of the tales in this volume is a gem, but they are all entirely distinct and breathe a different feeling. All make one think. Kielland is no mere story. teller. He has keen artistic and social sympathies, is realistic without being coarse, and above all is entirely readable and interesting. The Tragic Comedians. By George Meredith. 8vo, pp.

258. London: Ward, Lock & Bowden. 6s.

The tragic love-story of Ferdinand Lassalle and Helene von Donniges serves Mr. Meredith as the subject matter of this novel, which first appeared in book form in 1881. Mr. Mere. dith's chief authority was, in fact, the book written by Helene von Racowitza herself, and he has kept very close to her narrative, his characters being easily recognizable under the ficti. tious names with which he endowed them. This new edition has been carefully revised and corrected by Mr. Meredith, and has also the advantage of a brief introduction by the editor of the Illustrated London News, Mr. Clement Shorter, on Ferdi. nand Lassalle, judicious and carefully witten, but giving too little attention, we think, to Lassalle's political career. An excellent portrait of Mr. Meredith forms a frontispiece to the volune, which also contains portraits of Lassalle and Helene.

Helen Keller: Souvenir of the First Summer Meeting

of the American Association to Promote the Teaching of Speech to the Deaf. Washington: The Volta Bureau.

The case of Helen Keller, who became totally deaf and blind at the age of eighteen months. and who now fluently and writes a beautiful hand, is one of the most interesting and remarkable in the history of modern methods for the instruction of blind deaf mutes. We do our readers a kindness in calling attention to this fascinating and extraord nary little publication.

EDUCATION AND TEXT-BOOKS. Reading and Speaking: Familiar Talks to Young Men

who would Speak Well in Public. By Brainard Gardner Smith, A.M. 12mo, pp. 165. Boston: D. C. Heath & Co. 65 cents.

Professor Brainard G. Smith, of Cornell University-the gentleman whose admirable instruction in the correct and fit writing of ordinary practical English has led to much needless controversy about schools of journalism-is the author of a little book which will be hailed with joy and gladness by young men in four hundred American colleges and universities, and big boys in four thousand high schools and academies. It is a practical, useful, every-day little treatise upon public speaking. This is a book that will sell in spite of everything

La Famille de Germandre. Par George Sand. Edited by

Augusta C. Kimball. 12mo, pp. 118. Boston: Ginn & Co. 65 cents.

Students of French will find Augusta Kimball's edition of
George Sand's “La Famille de Germandre" a well-selected tale,
conveniently printed and prepared.
Manual of Plane Geometry, on the Heuristic Plan. By

G. Irving Hopkins. 12mo, pp. 187. Boston: D. C.
Heath & Co. 75 cents.

The principles of geometry do not change, but there is such a thing as improving the methods of presenting and teaching geometry, and Mr Hopkins' little manual would seem to be better adapted than anything that has yet been published for the presentation of plane geometry to young pupils.

Index to Scribner's Magazine, Volumes I-X. New

York: Charles Scribner's Sons.

Scribner's Magazine has completed ten half-yearly vol. umes, and many of the most noteworthy contributions of liter. ature and knowledge in the last half decade have appeared in the pages of this great periodical. The very complete and perfectly prepared index of these first ten volumes is therefore a library convenience of much value.

The Overland Monthly. Volume XVIII. Second Series,

July-December, 1891. San Francisco: The Overland
Monthly Publishing Co.

The bound volume of the Overland Monthly for the last half of 1891 is especially interesting by reason of the development of illustrations. It is only by taking complete volumes of the Overland and running through the table of contents that one fully appreciates the importance of this magazine as an exponent of Pacific Slope life and affairs.

TRAVEL, GEOGRAPHY, GUIDES, ETC.
About Ceylon and Borneo. By Walter J. Clutterbuck,

F.R.G.S. 12mo, pp. 275. New York: Longmans,
Green & Co. $2.

Mr. Clutterbuck is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. Incidentally his book contains some bits of valuable information about Ceylon and Borneo, but practically it is made up of the most trivial irrelevancies. Nothing could be more painfully flat than Mr. Clutterbuck's anecdotes about fellow-travellers and his constant attempts at witticism,

BOOKS OF REFERENCE. The Century Dictionary: An Encyclopedic Lexicon of

the English Language. Prepared under the direction of William Dwight Whitney, Ph.D., LL.D. Six volumes. Vol. VI., pp. 1046. New York: The Century Company.

The delivery of the sixth and concluding volume of the Century Dictionary, covering a little more than the last seven letters of the alphabet, is a noteworthy event as marking the completion of one of the greatest of modern literary undertakings. The Century Dictionary will be received as the standard for many years to come by very considerably more than half of the English-speaking world. Far from being a disappointment, it is hailed by the intelligent public with delight and enthusiasm. Rand, McNally & Co.'s Indexed Atlas of the World.

Chicago and New York: Rand, McNally & Co.

What the great Century Dictionary is to other and less complete lexicons of English, Rand, McNally & Co.'s new Indexed Atlas of the World will be among other accessible atlases. The page is much larger than that of any other atlas, the maps are all new and embody the latest data, and the indexing features are by far the most complete and perfect ever attempted before. An exhaustive index accompanies every map. The maps of the States show absolutely every existing post-office, a thing probably never attempted before in a world atlas. The statistical tables, based upon the latest censustaking and illustrated with colored diagrams, are also of the highest value. Splendid maps of all the principal cities of the world are another feature of this entrancing publication. The enterprise of a Chicago house in preparing the completest historical and practical atlas ever devised is highly appropriate in this year which completes the fourth century since the voyages of Columbus gave a beginning to the modern science of geography. State Legislation in 1891. A Comparative Summary and

Index issued as a State Library Bulletin by the University of the State of New York at Albany.

This publication classifies, in the most summary way, the legislation of the various States enacted in 1891, just as its predecessor covered the same ground for 1890. This second bulletin is more complete and valuable than the first, which is the highest compliment that could be paid it. Mr. W. B. Shaw, who is a regular contributor upon these subjects to THE REVIEW of REVIEWS, is the compiler of this volume, under the direction of Melvil Dewey, State Librarian. The great value of these

Delagoa Bay: Its Natives and Natural History. By Rose

Monteiro. 8vo, pp. 274. London: George Philip &
Son. 9s.

Very little scientific or geographical information of value can be expected of a book which the author herself acknowl. edges is mainly composed of letters written to home friends to describe her life and work. It is, however, brightly written and interesting. The twenty illustrations are mainly entomo. logical.

The Real Japan: Studies of Contemporary Japanese

Manners, Morals, Administration, and Politics. 8vo, pp. 364. London: T. Fisher Unwin. 7s. 6d.

These Studies" are for the most part based upon a series of letters contributed by the author to the Pall Mall Gazette and other influential journals. Mr. Norman enjoyed unique opportunities for studying the country, and his book may, therefore, be assumed to be, for a time at least, the dernier mot upon the subject. The illustrations are from photographs taken by the author.

H. R.H. the Duke of Clarence and Avondale in Southern

India. By J.D. Rees. 8vo, pp. 219. London: Kegan
Paul, Trench, Trübner & Co.

An authoritative account of the recent visit of the late prince to Southern India. The book also contains a narrative of elephant-catching in Mysore, by Mr.S.P. Sanderson,
