This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner

*'The book desenres the most careful reading bj all who are In any way In-

concerned in denying these than in showing that the moyement itself Is alto-

caase it marshals in a thoronghly businesslike fashion the evidence both for

"The practical value of Stephen's book is as high as its ability is great. It 
is only when we come to the region of pure ideas that we find him deficient. 
An avowed agnostic, who used and adopted Huxley's convenient barbarism, 
he made no pretence of solving enigmas which he confessed and even pro- 
claimed to be insoluble. But within the limits set by himself, Stephen's 
Science of Ethice is at once convincing and complete. Those who accept his 
premises can hardly avoid his conclusions ; those who do not will find in his 
book abundant food for thought as well as conclusive reason for respecting 
the intrepid honesty of the author."— Quarterly Review,

Bradley, Henry. The making of English. 1904. 4S0.9 B72 

"Beginning with a contrast of German and English, whldi the most imper- 
fect linguist can appreciate, that the reader may liave a standard of compari- 
son, he gires a short sketch of the main features of Old English. From this 
foundation he traces the eyolution of the language both in grammar and yo- 
cabulary, the internal dumges which time and habit induced, and the extern- 
al influence of foreign tongues, till he arrives at the work of the word-mak- 
ers and conscious development. . . . Mr. Bradley thinks that so far as 
grammar is concerned the making of English is a finished process. . . and 
that word-making is the only force at work which will render our English 
a little strange to our grandchildren; the modes by which the language 
adopts new formations is a curious story, and in Mr. Bradley's pages an en- 
thralling one."— The SpeeUOor,

"Specially compiled as a student's text-book, this book offers much assis- 
tance and many suffgestions to the engraver not yet an expert in his art. It 
glTes the implements to be used and the way to use them, the preliminary 
knowledge needed, especially in mathematics. All are so well illustrated, so 
clearly given, that the reader cannot mistake them. The chief topic of the 
book is the engraving of letters : block letters, script, the looped, the fancy, 
the stalwart old English, and, finally the fanciful cipher; until it seems as 
if all knowledge had been g^veu that would change an amateur into 
an expert." — The Crafttman.

Geikie, ^tr Archibald. Scottish reminiscences. 1904. 941.4 G27 

" Not for a long time has Scotland, fertile mother of memories as she is, 
produced so many-colored, fresh, and rich a book of reminiscences as this. 
A lengthened life and a broad range of experience; familiarity with every 
class, and a literary instinct which has kept his descriptions and narratives 
alive and in tone with all situations and conditions,— a tenacious memory 
and most varied sympathies, have all gone to make Sir Archibald Geikie no 
mere teller of good stories, or thin voice out of a past world, but a veritable 
picturer of that world —in great part, now, dead and gone— as it essentially 
lived and moved and had its being."— Nation.

the story of his life, and weigh the judgments of his friends and contem- 
poraries, we are not surprised to find blm in a place only short of the high-

" J. T. tells as In a prefatory note that the author died in 1900, and he hopes 
* that Identification will not be attempted.' There is nothing striking abont 
the quiet, refined Invalid in his country home who is here presented to ns; 
nor about his life or his religious and mental experiences, his work In the 
Tillage, or his thoughts on many subjects. But his polished, easy and cul- 
tured style oertainlj gives the book much charm, which grows on the reader 
as he turns over the pages. A good deal of the book ' draws carefully, 
faithfully, and lovinglj the portraits of some of my friends.' They are given

habit of reading figure largely in the list of items that we should carry 
with us on the Journey of life If we want the journey to be happy to the 
end. The llitt of books * a young woman ought to know * is an invaluable

modified by the influence of kindred European peoples who settled near or 
among the Engish colonists. . . . Outside of the writers of a few special 
works, no historian has thought it worth while to tell us much about the 
way In which the private ownership of land was established and developed 
in New England, how taxes were levied and collected, the objects of colonial 
and local expenditure, the legal regulation of industry and trade, the organi- 
zation, equipment, and employment of the military forces of ; the colonies, or 
the method of governmental dealings with the Indians. Thanks to Pro- 
fessor Osgood's researches, however, we have at last a clear and orderly out- 
line of the governmental and administrative life of the people in these re- 
spects."— 27t« Nation.

wlstfnlness, its tenderness, Its dreaminess. . . . The contributors to the

Clark trail, Identifying every mountain, stream, plain — indeed, every camp-

lectures, 1904, on the Syrlac-speaklng church. 270.1 B91 

•*Mr. Burkltt's new book is very interesting, and deserves careful attention. 
Its style is popular in the better and more select senflc of the term, and at the 
same time it represents conclusions reached by proper scholarly methods. 
The book is interesting on every pai;e of it, but the author is on one point at 
loast amazingly in error, and he is only partly correct on several other 
matters. . . . His account of the second century Gnostic Bardalsm is of 
great interest. The same can be said of the lecture dealing with the Acts 
of Judas Thomas and the famous 'Hymn of the Boul,* of the last named 
composition Mr. Burkitt gives us a fine translation of his own in English 
hexameters. The hymn is really beautiful." — ^^Aenoeum.

Oaird, Edward. The eyolntion of theology in the Greek philo- 
sophers. Gifford lectures, 1900-2. 1904. 2v. 180 C12 

"The Master of Ralliol in these learned and extremely lacid volumes brings 
▼ividly before the reader ' those Ideas of Greek philosophy which have most 
powerfully affected the subsequent development of theological thought.' 
The value of a work that traces in careful detail the evolution of theology 
through the hands of successive Greek thinkers can scarcely be overestimated 
at the present day . . . and Dr. Calrd's work brings home to the student of 
Christian theology the need of pursuing it to its original sources."

"One by one the great civilizations of the past yielded up their treasures, 
and the last century has witnessed the discovery of ancient faiths, so that 
the history of religion is now known to be Inseparably connected with the 
whole history of the human race. To sketch this process as clearly as may

*'Prof . Holtzmann baa apeclally prepared himself for writing The Life of 
Jetus by a series of investigations Into various a^pecta of that life, and by a 
thorough study of collateral subjects such as the state of religion among the 
Jews in the period when Christ lived. He has thus mastered all the sources 
from which information is to be obtained, and carefully weighed the esti- 
mates which have been formed by modern scholars of the value of these 
sources. Prof. Holtzmaun's woric is well written and profoundly interesting. 
It throws much light on the subject of which it treats, and though its 
opinions will naturally be strongly controverted, even those who differ mont 
from him will gain by a perusal of it." —Athenceum.

"The main portion of this volume concerns itself with the rationale of the 
three Christian graces and the four cardinal virtues as adopted by Christi- 
anity from Plato and the Greek philosophers. To these are added chapters 
on prayer, the Sacraments, mysticism, and the supernatural. . . . The studies 
are rooted in deep reading of things and men and the best thoughts of men, 
and the fruit should be plentiful in proportion."— The Times^ London.

"This Tolume is certainly calculated to promote an enlightened nndcrstanding 
of the early Old Testament narratives. The tone is free, reverent, and 
wholesome. The informatloD, which is wide, must be expected to be 
occasionally faulty. A mistake which this book shares with most others of 
its class is the fatal readiness to assume as certain things which are yet 8ub 
Judice. But having said this, we have nothing but praise left for our author's 
lectures. He has a decided talent for the investigation of legend and folk- 
lore. He knows how to appreciate their inner meanings without in any 
instance paying homage slavishly to the outer form they assume. His 
method of illustrating the earlier Bible narratives by the semi-mythlcal 
character of the early history of other nations Is, we are fully persuaded, 
sound enough.'* — Athenaum,

politics was unique, and the chapters which deal with the Civil War and 
Keconstructlon periods, the battle against the Tweed Ring, the Greeley

1884 contain many incidents and details which have never before been

"The dust and heat of the controversies and crises in which Oobbett lived 
and nioyed and had his very being have died away. The historian can ap. 
preach his case and examine his career without prejudice at last. We do 
not reKard him, as did so many of Ills contemporaries, as a mere incendiary 
and revolutionary. It is possible now to see and admit that Cobbett, violent 
and wrong-headed as he often was, unsound in his views, and unfair in his 
estimates, was often on the right path against injustice, corruption, and the 
unfair distribution of power and opportunities. He was always inspired 
by a genuine desire for reform. . . . But Cobbett's biographer must not be 
a hero-worshipper, for he will find that his hero's life was full of discredit- 
able actions. . . Mr. Carlyle, his latest and best biographer, Is clearly aware 
of this.** — Athenceum.

It is the best critique that has yet been written on the subject. Mr. Fifth's

"Devotion like that of Quintin Hogg is philanthropy in its rarest and most 
effective form. Apparently he hardly knew that he was setting a dlfflcnlt 
and unusual example. During his firsf year of city life, when he was him. 
self little more than a boy, he was struck with the misery of the slum 
diUdren and set to work to do what he could for them. The book is an 
excellent record of a life entirely given to good works. It praises, but not 
extravagantly; and it lays no more than proper stress on the sympathy and 
insight, amounting almost to genias, which gave Quintin Hogg his remark- 
able influence alike over the dullest street arab and the keenest student at

military, and colonial. . . . Mr. Boulger has essayed the useful task of

Crockett, S. B. Raiderland: all about grey Oallowaj, its

" This ' grey Galloway ' still an unfrequented province, is the home of the 
author's boyhood. He knows every corner of It : knows its stories, its tra- 
ditions, its characters, its humours, and all his powers of description— occa- 
sionally overdone, it must be admitted — are lavished upon It. ... The real 
Oalloway lives in these pages— the Galloway of ' The Raiders ' and its com- 
panions. The section on Galloway humour is excellent, and the annotated 
diary of an old Galloway laird which constitutes the last chapter is valuable 
as s^iowlng the condition of the farmers and their dependents toward the 
close of the eighteenth century ."— Athencmm.

The author of this bock on •' Great Japan *' was for about ten yo-rg princi-

on Japanese education, industrlul development, the army and navy, com-

the future of Japan, Dr. Dyer believes " that in material, intvllectuai and 
moral Influence Japan will fully Justify her claim to be called the Britain of

" This Is a remarkably interesting b^ok, dealing with a period of history by 
no means well known. It is a little unequal in execution, parts of It being 
quite delightful reading from the historical Imagination and descriptive 
power shown in them, while other part«> appear rather dry and hurried, if 
not sometimes rather confused, 80 that without very exact attention a reader 
is likely to lose his way among political Intrigues and changing movements 
of armies. A ny defects, however, are fully accounted for by the unfortunate 
fact that more than four-flfths of the 'MS. was lost and had to be rewritten. 
. . . And it cannot be denied, — Joachim Murat Ih the hero of Mr. John- 
8ton*d book. When writing of him, upurt from the confuted campaigns lu 
Italy, he rises to a delli^htful and almost poetic Htyle, and his description 
of the last scenes is truly excellent. He feels to the full the pathos of a won- 
derful career."— The Spectator.

Mr. Hanna. Mr. Hanna was thrown on to his head in a carriage accident, 
and as a result of the fall the whole of the knowledge acquired by him since 
the day of his birth disappeared and he was reduced to.the condition of a new 
bom infant, with his mental powers unimpaired. Later, Mr. Hanna awoke 
to his primary personality, completely ignorant of his life since his fall, and 
Anally both lives came up together In memory. . . Truly, one of the most

Moore's life of Lord Edward Tarious unauthorised sketches of him and of his

The present book is mainly written to prove that she was innocent of politi-

WMDt of an established position." —^fAenauiii.

yon from Dieppe, by Beanvals and the Loire, to Toulouse and Carcassonne, 
and thence, by NImes, Aix-en-Provence, and the Blvleras to Pisa, Florence 
and Vallomtfosa. Everywhere they reproduce some characteristic charm 
of scenery or architecture. Mr. Nerinson guides the reader through 
France, Mr. Carmichael takes over the charge of him at the frontier and 
tells him about Italy. Both writers do their work well, and there is some- 
thing in these pages for every one who has any love of the countries des- 
cribed, or who desires to love them more intelligently." — The Spectator,

certainly none among the ploturei of looh and moantaln whloh we should 
wish away. Mr. MoncrielTs description Is worthy of the pictures. He is Jnst 
a little oombatlTe now and then, when he thinks that * Sontlirons ' are pre- 
snming to criticize Scottish things and ways. He is particnlarly indignant at 
the charge of lack of hnmonr, and he ;klndly warns the Saxon against 
attempting to reproduce the Scottish accent."— The SpecttUar*

" Few men can be better equipped than Lord Ronaldshay for the wild 
travel in which he delights. He has stored his memory with the essential 
facts and knows how to make use of them. He has the knack of writing an 
engrossing book of travel. His book is full of incident and Interest, and 
there are lifelike studies of types of the wild races he came across."

HISTORY. 

Akers, 0. E. A history of South America. 1854-1904. 980 A81 

'* Blr. Akers aims at giving to us the story of the South American states and 
introducing to us the personalities of the men who have made politics for 
fifty years. He knows the faults of the Spanish- American, and briefiy indl. 
cates them, preferring to let his wide and impartial treatment of the 
many rerolutions speak for itself. . . . Mr. Akers is to be commended for a 
most readable, impartial, clear-slghted appreciation of political leaders and 
their motlTes, and we do not think South Americans will dissent from

" At the present Juncture a survey of the whole relations of Europe with the

part of his youth in the Chinese Consular Service, Sir Robert Douglas has 
had a better chance than most of getting to know the Oriental side of the 
case. The book is benefited by Mr. Prothero's exhaustive essay on ' The 
revolution in Japan/ here reprinted from the Quarterly Review, and It con. 
tains a full bibliography and five maps. . . . Generally, it may be said 
that Sir Robert Douglas has produced a most valuable text.book on a very

" The importance of this record can hardly be appreciated by those who have 
not made a special study of the Indian Mutiny. Mr. Forrest has made ex. 
ceptional researches, and his book represents more ' sources ' as the Germans 
call them, than that of any previous historian. He has often been over the 
ground himself. Selections from the State Papers have been skilfully used 
by Mr. Forrest who has an eye for the picturesque and effective. . . . 
We have at last a standard history of the mutiny, for such will be the rank 
of this book, unless we are greatly mistaken. It is not the least of Mr. For- 
rest's merits that his book has the poetical touches which so splendid a 
story demands.*'— Athemmm,

account-book. With great care and neatness he pasted upon its pages four 
versions of the New Testament, Latin, Greek, French and English, in 
parallel columns. He took a copy of the New Testament and cut from it 
and threw away as worthless every verse and paragraph that to bis mind 
was ambiguous or controversial, every statement of fact that would not have 
been admitted as evidence in the court of Justice, and all duplications in the 
narrative of the life of Christ. The remaining passages he arranged In 
clironological order, his idea being to present the best account of the lives 
of Christ and His apostles, with all of their teachings that required no inter- 
pretation."

** The Wprking Men's College was a pioneer; it has reached its Jabilee, and 
the occasion has been appropriately celebrated by the issue of this record, 
written by various members of the college. It describes the fonndation 
and work of the institntlon, and gives a personal accoant of the founders 
and others associated with it. The college arose out of the * Christian 
socialist ' movement started by F. D. Maurice, Charles Eingsley and others 
in November, 1864. Maurice, who had been dismissed from King's College, 
was the principal, and he was assisted by Tom Hughes, Dr. Furnivall, 
Vansittart Neale, J. M. Ludlow, B. B. Litchaeld, Professor Westlake, 
Bnskin, Bossetti, and Lowes Dickinson with some others. The work of 
these ardent and gifted spirits was the earliest form of slumming, and pro. 
bably the best it has ever taken."— The Time$t London,

** The aim Professor Bradley has set himself is to interpret the drama of 
each tragedy, and by patient thought to reincarnate each character as 
Shakespeare conceived it; . . . but It is impossible to give any adequate 
idea in these pages of the subtlety shown In Us achievement. From the 
beginning to the end the level of sustained, exact criticism never sinks, and 
at times there is in the interpretation an imagination and a poetry whldi 
make the book in the truest sense a work of creation. His exi>lanations are 
so lucid, so compelling, that, novel though many of them are, we are almost 
Invariably convinced. We have no hesitation in putting the book far above 
any modem Shakespearean criticism that we know, worthy to rank very 
near the immortal work of Lamb and Coleridge."— The Spectator.

it contains a counterblast to a theory of the sonnets which has lately ob-

Mr. Sidney I>e. That the sonnets were not the outcome of deep emotion ; 
that they were written not to a friend, bnt to a patron ; and that that patron 
was probably the £arl of Southampton,— these are the main articles in the 
creed of Mr. Lee and his followers, and a discussion of them occupies a

*' Sidgwick was one of those writers who have a reputation out of all pro- 
portion to the number of their readers. In the whole academic world, of 
wliich he was one of the brightest ornaments, he was far more honored than 
known, and very many were content to take on trust his reputation as the 
ecleverest man in Cambridge.' For this reason we are espccialiy grateful for 
the volume before us. It reveals a personality highly and predominantly 
intellectual, unwearied in detecting fallacies, subtle and ever alert, with the 
power of expressing itself in clear, accurate, and not ungraceful language, 
but a little lacking in imaginative vigour; stronger in criticism than con. 
structlon; both intellectually and emotionally unsympathetic. Many of the 
most prominent of Cambridge characteristics are found in these essays. As 
an expression of the personality of Sidgwick the collection has interest and 
value; as an embodiment of the Cambridge spirit it has enduring signifl- 
canoe for all who care about tracing intellectual tendencies.*'— Athenceum.

special type of descriptive literature, almost with a style of its own. Mr. 
Sharp takes his subject partly by authors, and partly by localities, when, as 
with the Bnglish lakes, or Geneva or the Thames, the literary associa- 
tions crowd too thickly for separate treatment. He ranges through the 
country of Meredith, Stevenson, Dickens, Scott, (George Eliot, Thackeray,

In the system used, a modifled fonn of the Decimal, each class and 
sub-class is represented by a number. These numbers run from 010 
to 999, with decimal subdiyisions. First come general works, in the 
lero numbers; then nine main groups, each including all the numbers 
in a given hundred. For instance, all the 900*8 are History and 
Travd. The following table giyes the nine main groups, and a few 
main classes under eadi. Each class has numerous sub-divisions. 
Full outlines of the classification are posted on the shelves in the 
library. Groups marked with * are shelved upstairs. The shelves 
are open to the public. 

Individual biography is all marked B, and then arranged alphabeti- 
cally by subject; but lives of musicians and artists are put with books 
on music and art. Collective biography is put with subject when pos- 
sible. For instance, a collection of the lives of physicians is put with 
history of medicine.

** The sab-title Is an excellent oharacterixation of the purpose and tlgnl-

important contribution made by the book Is to be found in the careful study 
of the development of the body that produced the Dedaratlon, and of 
the purposes which the document was intended to serve. The inter-relations 
of the growth of the power of Congress In strengthening the Union, the 
democratic movements in the several colonies, and the development of the

brought out with a clearness of outline and Illustrative illumination which

"This is an authorised account of Rodin both as man and sculptor, and has 
rccelTed the imprimatur of the artist himself. K. Hauclair has long been 
regarded as Rodin's literary mouthpiece. We may look upon this work as 
the i^)ology of the master himself for his life's work. Indeed, the best parts 
of it are, we think, those in which Rodin's aesthelio philosophy is given in his 
own words, for the artist occasionally expresses himself in language with 
something of the terse incislTeness of his style as a sculptor."— ^^AeiMntm.

This book is made up of lectures delivered at the Art Institute of Chicago in

like the slightly revised report of extempore talka than like a formal treatise, 
the text tending to become a sort of running commentary on the pictures, 
enlivened by a broad culture and a much wider knowledge of the subject 
than find room for expression, but rather incidental and inconclusive. Yet 
even where the author is inconclusive he is suggestive, which is perhaps bet- 
ter. The lectures must have been valuable to the students for whom they 
were primarily intended, and may be read by others with pleasure and 
profit."

" Mrt. Jan^mAii does not oonoern herself with the past hlatorj of Nonrmy, 
except with a few of Its legends; nor does she allade to the present anset- 
tled state of its politics. Bat the fact of Norwegian unrest makes an Inter- 
esting background to her brilliant series of passing impressions. Mr. Jung, 
man is a charming artist and he has done nothing more attraetire than theae 
portraits of Norwegian girls and children.*'— 5pectolor.

" Mr. Colby's method is primarily personal, uncompromising, whimsical, 
hrllliant. The worst fate ttiat is likely to befall him among reviewers is to 
be dubbed the American Chesterton, and there are worse fates than that. 
There exist indeed not a few points of resemblance between that English- 
man and this American. They are parallel. If not equal, in audacity, saliency, 
wit. Mr. Colby's essajrs, many of them of extreme brevity, have, like Mr. 
Chesterton's, been written mainly for newspapers. They are often brusque 
and sharp in substance and form. There is stuff in these fifty little essays to 
have made half a dozen volumes. The book is more brilliant, more pregnant 
of suggestion, than anything else of the kind which has so far been done by

**MlM Cwl, the Amerioui mrtitt who painted the portrait of the Bmprets 
Dowager which wat exhibited at Bt. LooIb, Ured for nearly a year In the differ- 
ent Imperial palaces of Peking, seeing the empress daily and associating con- 
stantly with the ladles of the court. She was present at all the state and 
religions functions that took place during her residence, and reoelTed many 
marks of the Empress's conHdence and favor. Throughout all history no 
other person from the Western world has been reoelred Into the Intimacy 
of the Imperial palaces. After Miss Carl had lived at court for a few months, 
she concluded that she would never make her experiences public, out of 
respect for Ohlnese prejudices and In order to conform to their Ideas of pro- 
priety. After her return to America, however, the false statements ascribed 
to her daily appearing in the newspapers convinced her that the only proper 
thing to do was to write a full and true relation of her Utt and experiences 
at the palace." — Ceniurp Mdffottine.

** The author has travelled Umbria afoot, ever fleeing from * that army of 
martyrs, who are led about Italy by Baedeker.' Everything modem he 
hates, and lives in the past, with the saints and the great painters who 
etemlaed them. A Boman of the Romans, he denounces the ' barbarism ' 
of the Beformatlon, and the falling olT from the andent faith. To under- 
stand Italy, a man should be neither Roman nor Protestant, but pagan ; but 
since Umbria is the home of mysticism, it is good that a mystic should write 
of it. Of painting, Mr. Hutton is a discerning critic, both accurate and sug- 
gestive. His book will be invaluable to the tourist he so heartily scorns. 
We shall probably wait long for a better book on Umbrian painters and 
Umbrian saints." — Nation.

*' Mr. Chesterton is quite on his own ground In writing about heretics. 
Such subjects as Kipling, Shaw, Whistler, U. O. Wells, the new paganism, 
and the Importance of orthodoxy, possess brilliancy enough in themselves 
to satisfy even this arch-priest of brilliancy in style. His Heretics is a book

Translated from the French by the author. The Abb^ visited the United 
States in 1903, and although his principal interest was naturally with the 
Catholic church, his general impressions, written in a sympathetic and 
vivacious spirit, make good reading. The work has been crowned by the 
French Academy and awarded the Montyon prise.

*' 'fhe Mitbor wm for WTeral je§n connected with the Department of the 
Interior of the Philippine fOTemment, when he made a special Inrestlga- 
tlon of conditions in the islands. Since his return he has contioaed his 
studies and is already known as an authority on the Philippines. His book 
glYes a full description of life among the natlre trlbcMi, and also in the 
Spanish and American colonies."— jDifrrary index. 

little, A. J. The far East. 1905. 951.6 L7S 

"In this admirable work, an authentic account is given of China proper, 
Manchuria, Mongolia, Turkestan and Tibet, Indo-Ohina and Korea, Siam 
and Japan. The author's treatment of Tibet and of Indo-Ghlna is, of neoes- 
slty, somewhat superficial. Of Korea and Ji^ian he has nothing partl- 
cnlarlj new to say, but of both countries a capital geographical survey Is 
given. Of Formosa, he gives an interesting picture.'*— jl^Aeiuvum. 

Lucas, E. V. A wanderer in Holland. Illus. by Herbert Mar- 
shall. 1905. 949.26 L96 

*' The reproductions of the water-colour sketches is more successful than 
is often the case. It was a happy idea to intersperse photographs of some 
of the more famous Dutch pictures. Mr. Lucas neither bores nor dog- 
matises, but his book is full of Information and not a little wise reflection. 
His volume is not merely a guide, but a book to keep and read again with 
enjoyment."— Saturday Review, 

H. B. The siege of the South Pole. 1905. 999 M59 

The most valuable part of the book is the lively and minute description of 
the voyages— some of them very little known — in the century between 
Cook and the Challenger; and that of the Russian Bellingshausen in 1810-21 
is here for the flrst time fully recorded in English. Dr. Mill's flnal chapter 
on * The raising of the siege ' contains plans for future exploration, which, 
if they cannot be adopted in their entirety, may at least provoke discussion. 
The volume contains a bibliographical appendix and a superb South Polar 
map by Mr. J. G. Bartholomew."— jllAeiumMii.

Dion Casslna was a Roman senator and consul, and held other oflloet, also. 
Hia history, which was in 80 books, began with the landing of JSneas In 
Italy, and oontlnned to his own day, from 1064 fi. C. to 229 A. D. Books 36 
to M alone have been presenred complete : the others exist only in abridged 
forms or in fragments. His work is one of the three original sources for 
Boman history in Greek, and is our only authority for part of the history of 
the Kmplre. It has been translated into Italian, French, and German, but 
not before into English. Dion's high position gave him free access to the 
nfitlonal archives, and as an authority on some points his work is of con. 
slderable value, but It is not remarkable for vigor of Judgment or critical 
acumen, although more philosophical than the compilations of the mere 
annalist.

** There are two valid reasons of such importance and steength that either 
of them alone would furnish an ample Justification for a new work on the 
great war in Canada, while both of them together make the appearance of 
such a work quite imperative. One reason Is that all the necessary soaroes 
of original information have only noyr been brought together for the 
very first time, chiefiy through the efTorts of lir. A. G. Doughty, the new 
Archivist of Canada. He has published volumes of original unprinted doou. 
ments which prove that the story of the fall of Quebec never has been, nor 
ever could have been told in full detail before. The best of accepted author- 
ities have erred greatly, both in details and general deductions. . . . The 
second reason is that the whole subject has never yet been described from 
the naval and military point of view combined together."— iVe/aee.

** A man who at the age of thirty-one was Brevet- Lieutenant-Colonel must 
have crowded into a short life a vast amount of work, and have shown re- 
markable qualities as a soldier. Seymour Vandeleur had the good fortune 
not only to see much service, but to see it in many parts of the Empire. The 
record of his life is therefore the record of British Imperial development dur- 
ing the past decade. Colonel Maxse has chocen to elaborate his background, 
and write in full the tale of Uganda, Nigeria, the Soudan, and the Boer War, 
so that Vandeleur's career stands, not by itself, but as part of a great work 
of empire-building in which he, and many like him, bore a hsaxd.**Spectaior.

** Written while the author was a prisoner in Reading gaol, and it contains 
what is probably the most sincere and personal expression of his peculiarly 
artificial and sensitive nature. He records his bitterness towards society on 
his downfall, his abject grief during the first months of prison discipline, 
and then the gradual growth of a repentant spirit, and a courageous resolve 
to go oat into the world and complete his artistic career. As a human doc- 
ument this work possesses unique value and interest, and the besuty of its 
style entitles it to a high place in the literature of the time."

LIST OF NEW BOOKS. 

O, Indicates gift. 



BVSBYMAN'S LIBBABY. 

This is a new series, which reprints in well-edited and convenient 
form those books whose value entitles them to a permanent place in lit- 
erature. It includes books of all kinds, — the drama, history, poetry, 
children's books, fiction, philosophy, religion, and science ; the object 
being to make the best books available in attractive form at a low 
price. Works by foreign authors are given in the best English transla. 
tion. One hundred books are to be published each year, and the issue 
is expected to continue ten years. The Library has bought the first 
100 volumes, and may continue the series. They are shelved together 
opposite the case for new books. As these books are mainly dupli- 
cates, readers who wish may take them out on a special slip, in addi- 
tion to the ordinary number of books allowed, and may keep them four 
weeks without renewal.

A book to make one think on present-dmy conditions. In the introdactlon 
the editor quotei from manj letters receWed from working people, firinf 
frank expression to their opinion of the ohnrch to-day. The editor's own po- 
sition Is suggested in the words : *' We see workmen looking bttk. upon the 
black record of charoh-goers In . social reform, till distrust lies deep In their 
hearts, and out of their months comes omdemnatlon and blttemets. . . • 
Bome of us who despair of the churches breathing new life into the people 
bellere that the people are destined to breathe new life into the churches." 
Then follows a discussion of the problem by eleven representative English- 
men of varying opinions;— labor leaders, and workers in social and religions 
organizations.

" Prof. UOlTding has been hitherto best known in this country by his Psy- 
eholoffPt and his admirably written HUtory of modem pkUoBophf/. In his 
PhUotophy qf religion, now translated, there is a personal note that lifts the 
book above the level of professional treatises on philosophy. The author 
seems, as he says, to be settling his own spiritual account, making ase of 
everything he has learned in the school of life and of Inquiry. His book 
claims the respectful attention of all who are prepared to discuss seriously 
and without prejudice the ultimate questions of human thought. . . There 
Is no mention of Matthew Arnold in the volume; the Danish thinker's phil- 
osophical equipment is infinitely superior to Arnold's; but the book recalls 
the temper of Matthew Arnold's teaching in his most serious and strenuous 
moments. If it may seem to many to minimize unduly the content of relig- 
ious belief, its austere sincerity refreshes like a spring of oool water."

** To bring out more fully the significance of the changed estimate of Jetma, 
it seemed desirable to examine the basis of ecclesiastical Christology In the 
supposed Messianic prophecies of the Old Testamtot, and the real teaehiaga 
concerning the Messiah in later Jewish literature, as well as the character of 
the Christ of dogma. It has been the aim of the author to treat with sympa- 
thy and reverence a conception that has for so many centuries famished 
spiritual nourishment to men, and to point out the historic value, not leas 
real because relative and transitory, of this and kindred ideas destined to 
pass away; but also to set the old and the new over against each other to 
dearly that men may see that there is no possible return to the past, and no

sympathy and charm. He has treated a big subject in a large and masterly

lofty and disinterested imperialism. . . . Mr. Oliver has chosen Hamilton

BVE&YMAN'S LIB&ABY. 

This is a new series, which reprints In well-edited and conrenient 
form those books whose value entitles them to a permanent place in lit- 
erature. It includes books of all kinds, — the drama, history, poetry, 
children's books, fiction, philosophy, religion, and science; the object 
being to make the best books available in attractive form at a low 
price. Works by foreign authors are given in the best English transla- 
tion. One hundred books are to be published each year, and the issue 
is exi)ected to continue ten years. The Library has bought the first 
100 volumes, and may continue the series. They are shelved together 
opposite the case for new books. As these books are mainly dupli- 
cates, readers who wish may take them out on a special slip, in addi- 
tion to the ordinary number of books allowed, and may keep them four 
weeks without renewal.

" The idea of the writer is to present Christ's ministry as reflected in the 
reminiscences of one of his companions. The characters are in part derived 
from the New Testament, and in part suggested by the author's knowledge 
of the characters of the period. Life in Palestine in the time of Christ is 
vividly described, with rare literary skill. . . . This study of the life of 
Christ has some advantages over the most noted works that preceded it. 
Hore Christian than that of Strauss, more readable than that of Neander, 
more earnest and genuinely reverential than that of Renan, and more 
thorough-going than that of the author of Xcce Edmot It will reward careful 
perusal. Its realization of the circumstances of Christ's life is perhaps un- 
equalled, Its conception of Christ's character is sublime, but its logical and

Hind, C. L. The education of an artist. 1906. 760.1 H68 

** Mr. Hind is a popalariser of carrenily accepted art criticism, and as this 
book Is readable and companionable, it wiii doabtless lead to a wider 
acqaaintance with the old masters. The title is misleading,— the book is 
really the story of a trip through Italy of a mythical Mr. Shaw, a Londoner 
whose previous experience has been depressingly workaday and wirhout 
artistic interests and knowledge. With engaging enthusiasm Mr. Shaw re. 
sponds to the picturesque interest of trayel, and to the romantic and artistic 
appeal of Italy. We might even become attached to him, were it not for 
hl4 habit of breaking out after dinner into a rftiumA of the history of art, 
which, however, may be skipped if too familiar. Uufortanately, the book 
gives a highly colored notion of artistic education, describing it as a very 
thrilling experience; whereas, without proportionate study to provoke sa<^ 
insight, even the greatest works can hardly reveal those heart shattering 
splendors so lavishly granted to Mr. Shaw."

RESOURCES OF THE LIBRARY. 

The Library has about 65,000 volames, and adds about 3,000 yearly. 
The books are arranged by subject, and readers over eighteen years of 
age may go directly to the shelves, where tables are provided for those 
who wish to read or study. Labels on the ends of the shelves guide 
in finding subjects, and an outHoe of the classification hangs near the 
Delivery Desk. The assistants are always ready to show the location 
of books, and to look for material on any subject, either in books or 
periodicals. 

The Reference Room, at the right of the front door, contains a good 
working collection of reference books, such as cyclopsedias, diction- 
aries, almanacs and year books, bibliographies, biographical diction- 
aries, indexes, and reference books on special subjects. It is the duty 
of the assistant here to help in looking up answers to questions, ex- 
plain the use of the card catalogue and indexes, suggest reading on 
special topics, and give information about the Library. The reference 
librarian will co-operate with study clubs in looking up the resources 
of the library on any subject, and will welcome suggestions of books 
or pictures for purchase. If programmes of clubs are sent to the 
Library early in the year, it will be possible to make sure that the 
Library has the best books on the subjects to be studied. In the Ref- 
erence Room are indexes to periodicals which make it possible to find 
any article desired in the back numbers of magazines. 

The card catalogue is at the left of the front door. This contains a 
list on cards of all the material in the library, arranged in one alphabet 
like a dictionary, by author, subject, and title, with the call number 
of the book in the upper left corner of the card. To secure books, 
write their call numbers on a slip provided, with the name of the 
cardholder at the top, and present the slip at the Delivery Desk. 
Those who wish may get their own books from the shelves, and ih\» 
is often a help in choosing one*s books. 

Each reader may take out two books, one only being fiction, and for

alar time. If the Library has duplicate copies of a book, a reader may 
renew It more than once, provided another copy Is on the shetves at 
the time of renewal, and thus a book may sometimes be kept several 
months. Some of the new books are placed for a time In cases at the 
left of the desk, fiction being In the first case. Some good older novels 
are also kept In this case. If the book a reader wishes Is ont, he may 
purchase a postal at the desk, fill out the printed form, and when the 
book Is available, this postal will be mailed to him, and the book re- 
served for him for thirty-six hours. 

Residents who live at a distance from the Library will flod cases of 
books in Hayman's drug store, Coolidge's Comer, and in Miss O'Brien's 
store, 807 Boylston Street, near Reservoir Lane. These books are 
frequently changed. If a reader file a request for a special book at 
one of these deposit stations, the book will be sent from the main 
library, as soon as available. In the case of very popular books. It is 
best to buy a reserve postal of the clerk. Books taken from one of 
the stations must be returned there ; but books borrowed at the main 
library may be returned at either place. Juvenile books are not kept 
In the deposit collection at the Coolidge's (^omer station, but will be 
sent there for Individual children by the regular deliveries, If a request 
slip Is left at the station each time a book Is desired. 

Readers are asked to recommend for purchase any books specially 
desired, and these recommendations will be submitted to the Book 
Committee of the Trustees. If the books are approved they will be 
purchased as soon as possible, and notice of their arrival sent to the 
person wishing them. Other suggestions for making the Library more 
useful will be welcomed by the Librarian and Trustees and given due 
consideration. Supported by public taxation and free to all, the 
Library Is the common property of the citizens of Brookilne, and It is 
hoped that they will make full use of its resources. 

PHOTOGRAPHS AND PICTURES. 

The Library has a collection of photographs of famous paintings, 
mounted, and arranged by artist. Anyone who wishes may look these 
over, by applying at the Delivery Desk, and may borrow as many as 



i

may be wanted in addition to ttie regular number of books. It is nsual 
to return these bj the end of the month. 

A collection of pictures on Biblical subjects has been recently begun, 
designed especially for those teaching the Bible. These are arranged 
by subject, so that illustrations of any incident are readily available. 
Many of the pictures are mounted, and large enough to show to a 
whole class, but the collection includes unmounted pictures. If there 
is demand, the Library will purchase small pictures in sufficient num- 
bers so that teachers may distribute them to a class during the lesson. 
Lists of publishers, series, pictures available, etc., may be consulted 
here by those who wish to buy pictures for themselves or their classes. 
Samples of most of the less expensive series, from one-half cent to 
twenty-five ceuts apiece, will be found in the collection. 

The Library is beginning a collection of photographs of architecture, 
which will be loaned lil^e the other pictures. Suggestions as to archi- 
tectural pictures specially desired, either by clubs or individual stu- 
dents, will be welcomed. 

MUSIC. 

A collection of about 1100 volumes of music, which may be bor- 
rowed like books, is shelved in an alcove at the right of the Delivery 
Desk. The collection contains the standard operas, oratorios, songs, 
music for one and two pianos (for two, four and eight hands) and a 
small collection of music for the parlor organ, for violin, and for 
'cello. The piano duets, as well as the music for two pianos, include 
arrangements of many symphonies, overtures, and other orchestral 
works, and the Library owns the chief piano concertos. A second 
copy of many of these concertos with the orchestral accompaniment, 
arranged for a second piano, makes it possible to use them with two 
planus. The collection of songs is particularly good, and includes 
many volumes of the songs of difiierent nations, and some very good 
ones for children. 

PERIODICALS. 

The Library subscribes to about 155 periodicals, including news- 
papers, the current numbers of which are in the Reading Room. 



82 BBOOKUm PUBLIC LDUtART. 

Back nambers, and bound yolnmes may be taken oat like books. The 
bnck numbers of roost of the magazines for the past year are shelved 
near the Delivery Desk, and may be freely consulted by readers. In 
the case of 28 of the most popular magazines, such as Century, Har- 
per's, McClure's, Ladies' Home Journal, etc., duplicate copies, includ- 
ing the latest number, are taken for issue at the Desk. The latest 
number of a magazine may be kept out two days ; other unbound 
magazines, Ave days. 

The magazines in the Library include many on special subjects, 
such as photography, engineering, electricity, teaching, business 
methods, cooking, nursing, sports, missions, charities, manual train- 
ing, art, etc. These are entered under subject as well as title in the 
card catalogue. 

CHILDREN'S BOOKS. 

On the lowest floor of the Library are two children's reading-rooms, 
— one especially for children under twelve years of age, which circu- 
lates books ; the other for reading and study. In the main library up- 
stairs is a juvenile collection for children over twelve years of age; 
and a shelf of books for children is near the Delivery Desk. Care is 
taken in the selection of the books for children, and the effort Is made 
to obtain the most attractive editions. It is suggested that looking 
over the books in the Library may sometimes help parents in choos- 
ing books for purchase for their children. Parents and teachers 
may co-operate with the Library in forming a taste for good reading 
and a respect for books, by asking the children to visit the Library and 
to behave there in an orderly manner, and by encouraging them to 
borrow books and to treat those books with proper care. 

The Library sends a collection of books to any teacher who wishes 
it, either in a public or private school, and these books circulate from 
the school-room. It also lends to schools mounted pictures and 
stereoscopic views of scenes in various countries.

"This work provides another object-lesson of how the results of eminent 
scholarship may be made available to a very large circle of readers. In 
order to attain an end like thix, a considerable degree of self -limitation on 
the part of the author is indeed unavoidable, and Dr. Driver himself ex. 
plains that a commentary on the Hebrew text itself, instead of on the re- 
vised version, would on many points yield a more accurate understanding 
of the pot'TD. But within the limitatlon.s deniandid by the ciroumstanoes 
we can hardly imagine anything better than what is here offered."

in charge of St. George's Church, requesting information as to the manage- 
ment of this great parish, and the important and varied work it acoomp. 
lishes among its 7,000 members of all classes. That the personality of Dr. 
Rainsford has been an enormous factor in what has been accomplished at 
St. George's must be admitted, but nevertheless in essentials what has been 
done there can be done in other parishes wherever zeal, enthusiasm, knowl- 
edge of men, and business sense are fused into one impelling force.'*

From the ancestors of all birds the author passes to the wonders of the 
feathers, the frame-work and the skull. The food of birds and how they 
get it, leads to the most interesting aspects of nutrition. The five senses 
are taken up from a comparative point of view, and the external parts are 
very fully discussed as to the meaning of their forms and functions. One 
of the principal objects is to show the vital relation of birds to other forms 
of life upon the earth. The last two chapters relate to the eggs of birds 
and the life within."

" Lord Aoton was for six years reglas professor of bistory at Cambridge 
University, and it is as a professor tbat be mast chiefly be judged. His ex- 
perience and knowledge of men and aflfairs, no less than his surpassing emdi- 
tion, his immense aocomuiation of classified knowledge, his dignity, kindli- 
ness, humour, sympathy, and humanity, ail these went together to swell bis 
moral and intellectual influence. In the present volume we find Lord 
Acton's inaugural lecture as professor, his scheme for The Cambridge 
modem hUtory^ and nineteen of his lectures, covering in giant strides the 
ages of the Renaissance, the Reformation, the Counter-Reformation, the 
wars of religion, the rise of political parties, the creation of the Prussian 
and the Russian powers, and the American Revolution."

" Mr. Owynn proposes to write the history of Ireland, not in ohronological 
detail, but in certain broad and oharacterlstio episodes. He selects places 
which have been storm centres in the past, and round the Krtj walls or 
green turf mounds he weares his story. . . . The book has another purpose, 
to advocate IntelltKent travel,— travel in the settled parts where history was 
made in the old days. Of the merit of Mr. Gwynn's writing it is super- 
fluous to speak. We can imagine no more instructive and attractive guide

'* The present volume concludes Mr. Paul's Important work, and brings the 
narrative of events from Gladstone's defeat in June, 1886, down to 1892. . . . 
The period covered was one of intense political feeling and action. Twice 
within seven months Gladstone was compelled to offer his resignation. 
The Irish question was constantly under discussion. It was the time of 
Parnell*! campaign, and Parnell's sensational fall. ... In 1891 Parliament 
passed a law e4tablishing a free educational system in the public elemen- 
tary schools of England and Wales. . . . Mr. Paul has the faculty of dis- 
tinguishing the Important from the unimportant in historical matters, and 
we are therefore spared many things which would otherwise cumber the 
volume. . . . We are made to see that the trend of public affairs has been 
continually in the line of rational advance.*' BoUon Tran$eript,

Canon Alnger (1837-1904) was an English clergyman, fot many years reader 
and afterwards master of the Temple church. Ue was distinguished for the 
charm of Ills personality and for his wit. The biography derives its chief 
interest from the letters, especially those to and from Du Maurier, who was

Masson, appendices and notes by Pierre Am^^e Pichot. 1906. 

E.C2475 
This is as the title explains " a record of the extraordinary events in the 
life of a French royalist during the war in La Vendte." The manuscript was 
discovered by Mr. Lane the publisher, and that it is proved authentic is due 
to the painstaking investigations of M. Pichot, one of the most skilful un- 
ravelers of historical problems connected with the Revolution in France. 
Strange to say, this Count de Cartrie, who played a really important part in 
La Vendue, is unmentloned in the narratives of the period. His romantic 
adventures in his Odyssey across France with his son, their hairbreadth 
escapes, his subsequent travels through Germany and Holland, and his life 
in England, are even more fascinating than his military exploits in La 
Vend6e. This is altogether an enjoyable volume.

PBIVILEaES OF RBADEB8. 

All residents of Brookline are entitled to draw books from the 
Library. In general, the building is open from 9.00 to 9.00 on week 
days, and from 2.00 to 9.00 on Sundays. For details, see inside page 
of cover. Children under twelve take books from the Children's 
Room, and children who wish to read or study may use the School 
Reference Room, where there is a good collection of children's books. 
In the main library, the shelves are open to all persons over eighteen 
years of age, and by ^* browsing " among the shelves one can usually 
find the book that suits him, and may happen upon treasures before 
unknown. The assistants will show where the books on each subject 
may be found. Those under eighteen will find on the table by the 
catalogue, lists of the most interesting books for boys and for girls. 

Perhaps some readers do not know that back numbers of the 155 
periodicals in the Reading Room may be taken out for home use. 
Many of these are kept till bound in an alcove near the Delivery Desk, 
where it is easy to look them over. Among them are many less known 
magazines, including numerous English ones, and periodicals on special 
topics, which will be found a pleasant addition to the usual diet of popu- 
lar American magazines. Hanging on the Bulletin Board is a useful 
litUe periodical called, ^' What's in the magazines," which guides one 
to the most interesting features in the numbers for the current 
month. In the case of 28 of the best-known periodicals, the current 
numbers may be obtained at the Delivery Desk. These may be kept two 
days. Many of the magazines taken are bound, and these bound copies 
circulate as books. Any article in the back numbers of magazines 
may be found through the indexes in the Reference Room. 

Pictures and photographs may be taken out in addition to the 
regular number of books. The Library has photographs of paintings, 
architectural views, and pictures illustrating scenes in the Bible. It is 
hoped that the Bible pictures will be useful to Sunday School teachers, 
and they are asked to leave requests at the Delivery Desk for pictures

they wish that are not already in the collection. A list of the pictorea 
in the collection may be consulted on application. If the reqaest is 
made two or three weeks before the pictures are wanted, unmounted 
pictures on special lessons will be purchased in such numbers that 
they may be distributed to all the members of a class. In the School 
Reference Room are mounted pictures and stereoscopic views of 
scenes in various countries. 

Bach cardholder may take two books or magazines at a time, only 
one book being fiction. Books may be kept two weeks and then 
renewed, except in the case of recent fiction or other new books in 
great demand. Rules about fines are printed on the borrower's card. 
To renew a book at the Library, send or mail the borrower's card and 
the number on the back of the book. To renew a book at one of the 
stations, send the borrower's card and the book itself. Books may be 
renewed more than once if there is a duplicate copy on the shelves at 
the time of renewal. Readers who wish to take more than two books 
for purposes of study may do so, if the books are not in general 
demand, by asking for a ^* special slip." These books may be kept as 
long as desired, within reasonable limits. Fiction is not issued on 
such slips. 

In the Reference Room, at the right of the front door, is a good 
collection of books of general information. The assistant here, or in 
fact any assistant, will help in looking up information on any subject, 
or in explaining the use of the card catalogue.

** Abendschein Is one of tlie latest of the long list of painters who have been 
fascinated by the 'Venetian secret' and have spent years in experimenting 
with varnishes and media in the effort to master it. . . The outcome is 
the almost dlsappointlDg but eminently sane conclusion that the old masters 
had no secret except care, leisurelines8, and sunshine. Their vehicle 
was plain linseed oil, their reliance for permanency and brilliancy being 
upon plenty of time for drying between successive paintings and upon pro- 
longed exposure to direct sunlight to bum out the excess of oil." NaUon,

knew that Miss Bird was foremost among women trarellers, but in her 
biography we see her in a less familiar and more attractive light. Her 
leisure, if we may call it so, was deroted to philanthropy and mission work.

BEADING FOB THE BLIND. 

It seems probable that there are in Brookline enough blind or par- 
tially blind people to Justify the Public Library in starting a collection 
of books for them, as has been done in other places. Before doing 
this, however, the Librarian wishes to obtain the names and addresses 
of all people in Brookline whose sight is so imperfect that they are 
anable to read ordinary print, that she may know whether there is 
sufficient demand for sach a collection, and that she may send them 
word if it is started. The names of some blind people have already 
been obtained, and the pablic are asked to help in making a complete 
list. Every citizen is asked to send to the Library the names, and if 
possible the addresses, of any people known to him whose sight is so 
imperfect that they cannot read ordinary books. Names may be sent by 
mall, or given to the assistant at the Delivery Desk. It is hoped that 
all will co-operate in this effort to make the Library useful to those who 
cannot enjoy it at present. It Is not necessary that they should know 
how to read type for the blind, as suitable primers and appliances for 
learning would form part of such a collection, and blind people even 
of advanced age have learned to read with the fingers. 

Several magazines are now published in type for the blind, and if 
there were a sufficient number of readers, the Library would circulate 
some of these, as well as books. It may be of interest to some to 
know that books for the blind may be borrowed free of charge of the 
Free Library of Philadelphia, and of the New York Public Library, 
and that these books are carried through the mails free. Owing to 
the generosity of Mrs. Matilda Ziegler, the Matilda Ziegler Magazine 
will be sent to any blind person for the nominal price of ten cents a 
year. The first number, dated March 5, 1907, contains ninety-six

ILLUSTRATED BOOKS OH FRAKOS. 

The Library has Just bought the publications of the Touring-Club 
of France, a set of 82 volumes, not too large or heavy to hold, of 
unusually beautiful iUustrations of scenery and the architectural 
«* monuments" of France^and her dependencies. These books must 
be seen to be appreciated ; It would be hard to get elsewhere such 
views of rural France, and such pictures of the cathedrals, churches, 
and other historic buildings in her old towns. Three of the 82 
volumes are devoted to Corsica, Algeria, and Tunis. The text (in 
French) is simply concise, descriptive notes on the places and 
buildings illustrated, somewhat in guide-book style. Each volume is 
accompanied by a good map of the departments included, showing the 
highways, and the lesser roads as well, the raibroads and the water- 
ways, and also by a plan of the chief town. These books will be 
placed for a time on a shelf in the Delivery Hall, where they may be 
easily looked over. They are intended for general circulation.

In order to make room for other matter in the Bulletin, the bound 
Tolnmes of general periodicals are not listed, as has been done here- 
tofore. Bound volumes of magazines on special subjects are en- 
tered under the subject, in the Bulletin. The Library subscribes to 
about 155 periodicals, aod binds many of these. Both bound and 
unbound numbers are issued to readers, and the bound numbers may 
be kept two weeks, like any book. On the Bulletin Board hangs 
a little periodical called WTiofa in the magazines,, which is useful in 
finding the most interesting features of the current magazines.

BBLIOIOH AND PHIL080PHT. 

AbboU, B. A. Silanns the Christian. 1906. 225 AIS 

A study of the meaning of the New Testament, and particularly 
of the fourth Gospel, in the form of the autobiography of a young 
Roman, who is introduced as a follower of Bpictetusln the year 
118 A. D. Stoicism fails to satisfy him and he becomes a convert to 
Ohrlstianity, first through reading the epistles of Paul, and later 
the Gospels. The author states that the object of the work Is to 
suggest a conception of Ohrlst, not as prophet, teacher, or philoso- 
pher, but as the Kternal Son of God, Incarnate as the son of Joseph 
and Mary. 

Allen, A. V. G. Freedom In the church. 1907. 283 A42 

The author Is Professor of Ohurch History in the Protestant Bpis- 
copal Theological School at Cambridge. While the book deals pri- 
marily with the question of freedom of opinion in the Bplscopal 
church, it will be of interest to all denominations, for in all the 
same problem appears. The main part of the book is a clear his- 
tory and discufislon of the doctrine of the Virgin Birth. 

Augustiiie, Saint, bishop of Hippo. The city of God ; trans, by 

John Healey. 1903. 3t. 280.8 A92 

"This work, completed about 420. is to be regarded as the last 
great Ohrlstian apologetic against the Pagans. The immediate 
stimulus was the shock of the fall of Home in 410, which raised 
again the old cry ' Ohrlstianity Is the cause of all our ills.* **

A live dlBOUsslon of problems which present themselves to boys 
and fflrls of the high-school age. It Is based upon the author^s long 
experience In teaching ethics, and the author draws freely for Il- 
lustration from the fields of blogi*aphy and literature. It Is pre- 
pared for class use with a series of questions, suggestions for teach- 
ing, and a bibliography, separated from the body of the text. 

Campbell, B. J. The new theology. 1907. 281 C15 

*' The author Is the minister of the Olty Temple. London, where the 
radical tone of his preaching has caused much comment and criti- 
cism recently. This book, written In a few weeks among the hills 
of Wales, whither Dr. Oampbell had retired to formulate his 
teaching. Is a marvel of brilliancy and clearness. It controverts 
nearly every doctrine of the creed as Interpreted fifty years ago; 
and states some of the doctrines In terms which, to say the least, 
can be better understood by the average thinker of to-day.*\

youDg women, in the middle and higher ranks of life; in a 

series of letters, addressed to a youth, a bachelor, a lover, a 

husband, a father, a citizen, or a subject]. From the edition 

of 1829. 1906. 178 C63 

" Such didactic works, from Solomon to Senator Beverldge, are as 
a rule platitudinous and arid. This criticism, however, cannot be 
passed upon Oobbett 's production. The sub-title should be 'Illus- 
trated with Numerous Anecdotes of My Own Exemplary Be- 
havior.^ He Is frankly autobiographic, and he displays his colos- 
sal egotism with a naivete that has few parallels In our literature. 
No one who wishes to understand Oobbett either as a man or a po- 
litical agitator, can neglect this compendium of advice.^* Nation,

For popular reading, and very interesting. The author, who Is a 
physician of experience, cites in great detail the results of modern 
study of the brain, especially in surgery of the living brain. Ac- 
cording to his argument, these results show that certain acquired 
powers, such as reading and speaking, have their source in certain 
convolutions of one hemisphere of the brain; but ttiat, in case of 
accident to it, the other hemisphere may be taught to perform 
these functions, provided the patient is young. From these facts, 
he argues that there is a personality, or mind, distinct from the 
physical brain, and ttiat it uses the brain as an instrument, " edu- 
cating " certain cells to perform certain duties. The bearing of 
this argument on the question of personal immortality is also 
mentioned.

tions of aggregations of capital to aggregations of labor. Mr. 
MacGregor^s methods of procedure are correct; and his oonolosions 
sane. The chief, if not the only, ground for criticism is his disposi- 
tion to take too seriously ' official * material dealing with the Trust

" The author Is a Senator of France, has been Minister of Agrl-

men,— these are the subjects of his early chapters. As a remedy 
for the evils of overcrowding and of commercial and industrial 
plethora in cities, he turns to agriculture. With him the return to 
the land is not a mere idyll, but is dealt with In a practical manner, 
and with the skill of the statesman and economist. And it is, as 
far as imaginable on such a subject, written in a spirit and style 
which give the book actual charm. "

Bvery technical man uses mathematics and would use It still 
more, were he not handicapped by the fact that it Is almost Im- 
possible quickly to refer to the exlstincr mathematical text-books. 
. . . Besides beinir a reference book which covers the entire field 
of practical mathematics, this also embodies many practical prob- 
lems which will not be found in other books on this subject. 
In solving a problem It is often difficult to determine just where 
the trouble lies. One may think It Is In calculus and find that It Is 
in aUrebra or In arithmetic. The Handbook of MalhemcUiet is 
thoroughly crossed-referenced so that when looking up any par- 
ticular solution one will be referred back to all the foregoing steps 
upon which It rests, thus making It possible quickly to trace the 
solution from the result back to the fundamental principles of 
arithmetic.

" About ten years ago. Dr. Le Bon turned his attention to physical 
science, with the result that he entered upon the last course of 
experimental research which is summarized in the following pages. 
This led him to the conclusion . . . that all matter is radio-active 
in the same manner as uranium, radium, and the other so-called 
radio-active metals, and that this radio-activity is but a step in the 
process by which it gradually sinks back Into the ether from which 
it was originally formed. " Tran9laU»r*M pref.

He combines with a rather misty speculative trend of mind prac-

than Is presented In the political history of the Empire State.** 

" A history written on such a plan Is perforce Interesting. If for no 
other reason than because men are more attractive than Institu-

" An Interesting volume ; fascinating would not be too extravagant 
a term to apply to it, at least In parts. It cannot profess to be a 
serious contribution to the history of the French Revolution, has 
neither footnote nor reference, exhibits no knowledge of the re- 
searches of Aulard, Bir6, Sorel, Duruy, Wallon, and hundreds of 
other scholars, who have upset our old ideas on a number of ques- 
tions, and it gives the author^s reading of disputable points (and 
they are countless) dogmatically. . . On the other hand, the events 
of the period, both social and political, are shown forth in a fresh 
and attractive setting; its tragical and pathetic incidents are nar- 
rated with contagious emotion. Indeed, the book, though some- 
what grandiose in style, is just the sort to spur on an indolent 
reader to make the acquaintance of other, and possibly more accu- 
rate, works on the French Revolution. But the inaccuracies"are 
manifold and distressing. . . Indeed, he has all the merits and the 
defects of the romantic, as opposed to the scientific, historian.'^

the wonderful change brought about under this Pope, and a study 
of the four personages who, above all others, fostered or perfected 
the reform movement, namely. Agostlno Ohlgl In the financial de- 
velopment; Raphael and Michaelangelo In the artistic; and Vlt- 
toria dolonna In the religious and moral. In dealing with the lives 
of these illustrious persons, facts or anecdotes already well known 
to the general public have not been repeated, but the author has 
confined himself to particulars either unpublished or little known. 
In developing the subject one principal aim has been kept In 
view:— to Illustrate the few monuments of that period left standing 
In Rome, and mostly concealed under modern superstructures."

schools for them were established. The Introduction states: 
" It is not with matters military or political that these letters deal. 
They record the day to day experiences of the housekeeper, the 
teacher, the superintendent of labor, and the landowner. For this 
reason they form a new contribution to the history of the Port

"The late Edwin Lawrence Godkln was one of the leaders in the 
group of great Journalists which arose In this country in the last 
half of the nineteenth century. By virtue of his remarkable per- 
sonality and his great gifts Mr. Oodkin wielded a powerful 
influence. In 1866 he founded T?^e NcUUm, and in 1882 became the 
editor of the New York Evening Pott, His devotion to the task of 
exposing corruption in politics, and elevating the ideals of the 
American people, won him many friends among the best men and 
women of his time, both here and in Bngland, and forced admira- 
tion from his enemies. His fight against Tammany, waged with 
the greatest vigor in spite of frequent arrests, is one of the maoy 
interesting episodes of the book."

these letters, selected with tact and Judgment, are admirable. 
They are hearty, spontaneous,— without the poses sometimes 
found in literary folk. The best are those that describe personal 
experiences, local customs, or give bits of folk-lore."

the details given by Jaeger. Archer, Gosse, and others, and Ibeen^s 
own published correspondence. For those unfamiliar with the 
subject, it provides a convenient and fairly full narrative. It not 
only gives synopses of all the plays in their order, bat also fur- 
nishes explanations of their motives, intent, and symbolism.**
