I suppose, Mr. Demetrius C. Boulger's “The Life of Gordon " (Unwin; two vols., 21s.). Mr. Boulger makes special claim to providing much new material, and he certainly reopens many old questions--that crucial one, for instance, of where lies the responsibility for Gordon's death. Dr. Archibald Forbes's “ Camps, Quarters, and Casual Places ” (Macmillan, 7s, 6d.) is just such another collection of the veteran war-correspondent's reminiscences of great events and great men as that I sent you a year or so ago with such hearty commendation. That trick of picturesque description, of writing so as to interest, learnt by Dr. Forbes on many a battle-ground, he has not forgotten, and the present volume holds the excitement of a score of ordinary novels; and, of course, its historical value is by no means slight. A trained observer and a ready thinker, what Dr. Forbes saw he remembered, and the evidence of an eye-witness of such scenes as those that stand out as the turning points of the Franco-German war are often worth far more than the considered facts of the arm-chair historian. Mr. Stanley Roamer's “ Cardinal Manning as presented in his Own Letters and Notes” (Stock, 5s.) is an endeavour to belittle the great Cardinal by use of the material thrust before the public by Mr. Purcell's indiscretion. And then there is “ The Lives of the Brethren of the Order of Preachers, 1206–1259(Mawson, Newcastle-onTyne), done into English from the original thirteenth century manuscripts by Father John Placid Conway, which I send you more as a naïve literary and religious curiosity than anything else. These old legends and narratives of the miracles of St. Dominic and his first followers are interesting and entertaining to a very high degree.

Not perhaps to you personally, but to many readers who take special interest in literary matters, Mr. Clement K. Shorter's “Charlotte Brontë and her Circle” (Hodder, 7s. 6d.) will be the most welcome book of the month In the first place it clears up once and for all the controversy which has gathered round the story of the marriage of the authoress of “ Jane Eyre," and puts an end to much of that "gossip about Harriet” so distasteful to all those to whom the name and fame of Charlotte Brontë are dear. And then it reveals clearly and finally the personality of this most gifted of three gifted sisters. Mr. Shorter has done his work with admirable discretion, and fortune has enabled him to offer to the admirers of Charlotte Brontë a very large number of new letters, almost all of which are of the very first importance. The interest of Mr. Charles Whibley's “ A Book of Scoundrels” (Heinemaun, 7s.6d.) is literary too, in spite of the fact that it deals entirely with the lives and achievements of certain more or less famous housebreakers and highwaymen of the past. “There are other manifestations of greatness than to relieve suffering or to wreck an empire," says Mr. Whibley in his introduction, and forthwith falls to chronicling, in precious language, curiously suited to the subject, the exploits of sach perverted "great men” as Jonathan Wild and Jack Shepherd, Cartouche and Deacon Brodie, “ Gentleman Harry” and Charles Peace. The book is something of a literary curiosity.

Of political books Mr. G. W. Steevens's “ Naval Policy, with Some Accounts of the Warships of the Principal Powers” (Methuen, 6s.) is both the most valuable and the most important. Mr. Steevens is no mere bookmaker; he writes with authority: in the first place, he is the fellow of an Oxford college; he was, to use an Irishism, one of Mr. Cust's right hands on the Pall Jall, and he is now in America as the special correspondent of

the Daily Mail. But his book is not pretentious: he makes no claim to the presentation of new facts, but merely to the collation and arrangement of those which have always been accessible to the public. His final chapter, “ Are we ready for war?” is, of course, the real text of his discourse. "We are most unready," he answers. “We have not the ships; we have not the men; we have not the guns"; and he adduces his reasons for his conviction, and indicates the course by which, in his opinion, our naval salvation is to be secured. A more or less valuable work, but one suffering from the inevitable defects which follow on its being made up of the work of many different men, is “ The Civilisation of Our Day: a Series of Original Essays on Some of its More Important Phases at the Close of the Nineteenth Century” (Low, 16s. net.), edited by Mr. James Samuelson. Divided into four sections“ The Utilization of Natural Products," “Social and Economic Progress," “ Educational Progress,” and “ Intellectual and Religious Progress"-it is the work entirely of “experts," including Sir Hugh Gilzean-Reid, who writes on “The Press," Dr. Richard Garnett on “ Free Libraries and Museums," and Professor Max Müller on “ The Dawn of Reason in Religion.” Mrs. Mona Caird's “Beyond the Pale: an Appeal on Behalf of the Victims of Vivisection” (W. Reeves, 6d.) is almost a pamphlet.

In art, Mr. Ford M. Hueffer's “ Ford Madox Brown: & Record of His Life and Work” (Longmans, 42s.) comes at a time when all the world is going to see the Arts and Crafts Exhibition, and paying particular attention to the room almost entirely devoted to Madox Brown's pictures and cartoons. It is a very fine volume, beautifully illustrated both with process pictures and photogravure plates, and it is, of course, of historical interest in adding still more to our knowledge of the foundation and early progress of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Such a book is worthy of its subject, and both combine to make it well worth the apparently somewhat high price asked for it. But, of course, the reproductions of Madox Brown's best known paintings could not be executed on such a scale and with such excellence, in a cheaper volume. “A Text-Book of the History of Sculpture” (Longmans, 6s.) is the joint work of Dr. Allan Marquand and Dr. Arthur L. Frotheringham, Jr., perhaps the greatest authorities on their subject. A book like this would be of little use without illustrations, and here they are both numerous and excellent, really illustrating the authors' argument.

The peculiar interest of the translation from the German of Dr. William Hirsch's “ Genius and Degeneration” (Heinemann, 17s. net) lies in the fact that the author has gone over practically the same ground as Dr. Nordau in “Degeneration," and comes to an almost diametrically opposite conclusion. Rather more scientific in his method of treatment than the alarmist author of “ Conventional Lies of Our Civilisation, it is encouraging to find Dr. Hirsch, after going thoroughly into the questions of art and insanity, and the psychology of genius, declaring that in bis opinion “mankind is not in a black plague of degeneration.'”. One of the Bodley Head series, the Arcady Library, has just had a notable addition in the shape of Mr. John Buchan's “ Scholar Gipsies” (Lane, 5s. net.), a book very much after the heart of the lover of literature, such a collection of essays, in fact, as one may put side by side with the productions of Robert Louis Stevenson in the same genie. “The baggage of a vagrant in life and letters," Mr. Buchan calls his voluine,-"a few pictures

Mr. Thomson places man to an appreciation of the American's outlook on his fantastic court in Brittany-a rare place for strange letters, and to the difference that in this respect happenings, as other writers, Mr. R. W. Chambers among lies between the States and England. « Vignettes : the number, could testify. Mr. H.

Another very handsome new edition is that American novelist, Mr. Henry James, has given us in of Boswell's “Life of Johnson” (Constable, 12s. net), “ The Other House” (Heinemann, 2 vols. 10s. net) one edited in six small volumes, beautifully printed and of his longest and at the same time most successful neatly bound, by Mr. Augustine Birrell, who, in his notes studies in psychological narrative. “Simplicity” (Lane, and introduction, says everything that the ordinary 2s, net), by Mr. A. T. G. Price, is a curious little story, reader will find it useful to know. It is a reprint very more or less with the same motive as “The Heavenly much after the book-lover's heart, and will long remain Twins.” It forms the latest volume of Pierrot's Library. the best both for the general reader and the scholar. Mr. You remember “ Tales of Mean Streets ?” The author Birrell, too, is the editor of the new and popular edition, of that volume, Mr. Arthur Morrison, has just issued a in two volumes, of " The Poetical Works of Robert long story, “A Child of the Jago" (Methuen, 6s.), dealBrowning," of which the first volume (Smith and Elder, ing with an even lower stratum than he discovered before 7s. 6d.) has just appeared.

One can only hope that the whole place is a figure of Dumas's “The Count of Monte Cristo” (Warne, of Mr. Morrison's imagination; but he has presented his 25.), and the Victoria edition of “ The Works of Shake- story with such skill and art that the reader has no epeare” (Warne, 2s.6d.)—both volumes of surprising choice but to be convinced. “ Maggie: a Child of the excellence and cheapness.

His rivals have shown a less scrupulous regard The publication of Mr. John Davidson's "New Ballads for their art, and book has succeeded book with the (Lane, 4s. 6d. net) has been the poetical event of the seasons' regularity. “The Heart of Princess Osra” month. One poem, "A New Ballad of Tannhäuser," is

an attempt at “laying the ghost of an unwholesome idea that still haunts the world—the idea of the inherent impurity of nature," by sending Tannhäuser back from Rome, with the assent of the Deity, to the mountain of the Queen of Love:

**No; here,' she said, we stay, until

The Golden Age shall come again.'” This is hardly an emendation that will find favour with “ the general," but still there is nothing in the volume likely to shock his readers as did “A Ballad of a Nun.” The finest poem is “A Woman and Her Son," which, whether the author agree or not, can be taken, I think, as putting, as clearly as the limits of its form will permit, Mr. Davidson's own sturdy pessimistic outlook That his outlook is pessimistic almost every page bears witness-unwillingly pessimistic, perhaps, for Mr. Davidson writes as a man who has had the futility, what he calls “ this farce of fate,” irresistibly borne in upon him. But his conviction leaves him no less vigorous and convinced of the duty of humanity. In other words, Mr. Davidson is both poet and thinker; each quality fits the other as a glove; we have in him a poet who is in touch with the age, however much, and sadly, his

belief may have been shaken. Miss Winifred Lucas's “ Units” (Lane, 3s. 6d. net), dedicated to Mrs. Meynell, shows plentiful signs of that poet's influence. It is a beautiful little volume, not so much musical as thoughtful--almost too packed with thought to be easy to read. Miss Lucas is hardly likely to be allowed to remain in that deep obscurity which is the fate of most minor poets. “ English Epithalamies ” (Lane, 3s. 6d. net) is the first volume of the new series of Bodley Head Anthologies. It is a delightful collection of nuptial songs from all our literature.

And finally, two or three miscellaneous books. Mr. Stanley de Brath's “ The Foundations of Success: a Plea for Rational Education” (Philip, 2s. 6d.), is addressed particularly to those who are dissatisfied with the present system. Mr. E. A. Brayley Hodgetts's “Round about Armenia : the Record of a Journey across the Balkans, through Turkey, the Caucasus, and Persia in 1895” (Low, 6s.), is the work of a man thoroughly at one with the Armenian committees. The volume contains a good map of Armenia and the surrounding country. “Premature Burial and How it May be Prevented” (Sonnenschein, 55.), by Mr. William Tebb and Col. E. Perry Vollum, M.D., describes itself sufficiently.
