THE ANALYSIS OF FAME "needlework"; Athene Scyler, "walking, talking." It is an interest- ing commentary on the social conventions that whereas music is set down quite commonly, and at least Ernest Hemingway has had the courage to include drinking., nowhere can I find either gambling or women as a recreation. Often the biographies include fascinating facts. A hint that Epstein may possess an inferiority complex is given by the remark that his work on the British Medical Association, though "attacked by newspapers, religious bodies, etc., was defended by Times" It is pleasant to know that J. D. Rockefeller senior has given away more than $500,000,000 in charity. It is also pleasant that in these days of specialization such a paragon of versatility can exist as Dr. Satis- chandra Bagchi, Principal of the University Law College at Calcutta, who, in addition to numerous legal works, notably on the "Juristic Personality of Hindu Deities," has written books on "The Mathe- matics of Transformation and Quantum Theory "; " Rabelais "; and "Morality in Art/' besides translating French stories into Bengali. It is tempting to browse on. Almost every page has its rewards. The clergyman whose recreations are caricature and philately; the fact that Marie Stopes mentions her marriage to her first husband, but that he does not mention the fact of his marriage to Marie S topes; the omission by H. G. Wells of any mention of the first marriage for which in his autobiography he finds so much space; the fact that neither Sir Charles Sherringlon nor Miss Ethel M. Dell give their ages. . . . But I must refrain. Who's Who is a great work. It is not only so useful as to be all but indispensable; not only, as I have tried to point out, one of the world's most valuable source-books in sociology; but also contains more interesting specimens of what are usually known as "human docu- ments" than any other work in existence. And if you think the price is high, reflect that it works out at less than a farthing per closely printed page—far cheaper than a novel.
