Bran tome (c. 1 540-1614) was a French soldier and courtier. 

'*The great merit of Brantome lies in the extraordinary vividness of his powers of 
literary presentment ... His irregular, brightly coloured, and easily flowing manner, 
represents, as hardly any age has ever been represented, the characteristics of the great 
society of his time... [His] unquestioning acceptance of, and belief in, the moral stand- 
ards of his own society, give a genuineness and a freshness to his work which are very 
rare in literature. Few writers, again, have had the knack of hitting off character, 
superficially it is true, yet with sufficient distinction, which Brantome has.*' Saints- 
bury's Short history of French literature.

Reminiscences of some of the earlier members of a famous literary society of Cam- 
bridge Universit3^ humorously dubbed the "Apostles" because its memb^i^ip was 
limited to 12. It was in its prime between 1824 and 1840, and hat numbered among its 
members some of the most distinguished Englishmen of the century. Henry Sidgwick 
was a prominent "Apostle" and in the recently published memoir of his life (93 85682) 
there are many interesting. allusions to the society.

the standards of sincerity, and of the relative value of the deliberate self -study and the 
unconscious self •revelation."

magnificent passions. . .The quality of the collection was more remarkable than its 
number: for it was not made at haphazard, but selected by design, under the eye of 
one by whom all that was eminent in English story was thoroughly known and ap- 
preciated, and comprised what he considered the ilite of the nation during the most 
stirring years of all its annals, from the Armada to the Restoration." Edinburgh re-

Fergusson; Willie Laidlaw; Tom Purdie. — Scott's relation to other poets: Campbell; 
Crabbe; Moore; Lord Byron; Wordsworth and Southey. 

Its charm for the most part is that it brings us into familiar friendship with a host 
of old Scottish ladies, Edinburgh advocates, antiquarian lairds, and great folk whom we 
had learned to know a little in Lockhart and other writers of memoirs. Some of the 
material is from printed sources, but a great deal of it Miss Maccunn has drawn from 
stores of unpublished correspondence. Beyond its burden of entertainment the chief 
merit of the book is the light it throws on the genesis of Scott's poems and novels. Con- 
densed from Nation, 1910.

The Medici. 2v. 1909. Dutton. 

"Authorities consulted," v.i, p. 15-17. 

This work saps the foundations of many a time-honored misconception built upon 
stories that cannot bear critical examination. The author places before us the results 
of the most recent research, impartially sifting the evidence as he goes; it is we who 
draw the inevitable conclusions. In the course of his survey he conscientiously ex- 
amines the life of each member of the Medid family whose name has come down to 
posterity. The work accordingly comprises more than a hundred biographical sketches 
of members of the house of Medici, beginning with its founder Giovanni di Bicci, and 
ending with the electress Anna Maria Ludovica; while the connected subjects upon 
which it throws light are of the most varied character. Condensed from Athentrum, igoQ.

"Might be called the autobiography of a soul — a record of the development of the

Mr Greenslet has brought to his work delicacy and reticence, together with a sldlT 
in words that reproduces something of the charm of one who made refinement the end 
of all his labor. He tells just enough of the child's surroundings at Portsmouth, of the 
clerk and youthful editor in New York; he follows the man sympathetically through his 
Boston years of prosperous toil and golden ease, to the honored close. It is a happy life 
gracefully told. Condensed from Nation, 1908,

upon politics, human nature and criticism. . .On the whole, his accounts of distinguished 
men, though coloured by his prejudices, are sensible as far as thej go. The book is 
amusingly characteristic of his even temper, calm conviction of his own merits, and con-

Allingham was an Irish poet. The interest of his diary depends little on his own 
literary achievements and much on the fame of his friends, the chief of whom were 
Tennyson and Carlyle. Rossetti and Browning are often mentioned and a host of lesser 
literary names. Allingham knew how to draw the best from his friends in eonversatiim

making her researches. The story of her life is tragic, for her brilliant though unsound 
mind finally gave way under the strain of her delusion, but her biography has interest 
and value, if only for the glimpse it gives of her friends, Hawthorne, Carlyle and Emer- 
son. The former was from first to last her faithful and devoted friend, and all three

Blackie (1809-95) was a Scottish philologist, for 30 years professor of Greek in the 
University of Edinburgh. The letters to his parents cover about two years and a half, 
while he was a student in Germany and Italy. The youthful letters are followed by 
others written ten years later to Miss Wyld, whom he afterward married. The rest of 
the correspondence, and the largest part, covers Blackie's married life, 1843-95. The 
letters are various in theme but uniform in their tone of steadily sustained cheerful- 
ness. They contain references to nearly all the distinguished men of his time.

Brooks (i8i5'>74) was from an early age a voluminous contributor to the press, be- 
ndes writinii a number of novels. In 1870 he assumed the editorship of "Punch." He 
was a great talker of the old sort; a tremendous writer, turning out jokes, poems, parlia- 
mentary reports, any kind of "copy," with incredible ease — a bom journalist. His let- 
ters are of the kind that must have filled the recipient with joy, but that somehow in 
eold print, half a century later, sound forced and schoolboyish. Condensgd from Nation,

Readable volume of appreciation, written from the point of view of the negro. 
Disappointing in that it betrays little original research and contains many inaccuracies, 
partly because the author has relied on his predecessors in the field. The last chapter 
is a notable discussion of the race question as it stands to^y in the light of John 
Brown's sacrifice.

Author has traced Brown's life from day to day throughout the entire active period of 
his career, has gone minutely over the ground on which he operated, and tested every 
printed or verbal statement with tiie rigid thoroughness of a laboratory investigator. 
We have here a book, and the only book, in which the unquestioned facts of John 
Brown's career are completely exhibited. If the author's conclusions differ from the 
conclusions of others, he cannot be charged with either withholding or distorting the 
evidence upon which they are based. Condensed from Nation, 1910.

lecturer in history and political science at Cambridge since 1876. He has found his 
supreme interest in the education of statesmen, and he lo<^s upon Mr Gerkld Balfour

chiefly occupied with the personal affairs of the writers. The volume is of much inter*

"The late Professor Hall Griffin was an enthusiastic student of Browning, and had 
collected a large amount of biographical and illustrative material. Among other things, 
he discovered the diary of Alfred Domett; he visited and identified all Browning's 
homes, early and late; and his friendship with the Browning family and with some of 
Browning's closest friends gave him access to many unpublished sources of informatioa 
...Book is more than a thesaurus of facts. It is admirably written, and full of good 
sense and good judgment. It does not attempt to provide any elaborate critical ap? 
paratus, but such criticism as is given seems to us exceptionally balanced and sane. The 
book is primarily a biography, and in the second place a history of literary influences

''These memoirs contain the contemporary impressions of the wife of a Prussian

▼iew and contacts which well fitted her to be a diplomat's wife. Add to those charms 
a quick and receptive intellect, and simplicity of character proof against the artificiality 
of courts and social conventions, and you have an unusual personality. Madame de 
Bunsen was at Turin from 1858 to 1863, during the years when the Piedmontese capital

Sir William Butler; an autobiography. 191 1. Constable. 

Sir William Butler (1838-1910) was an Irish soldier who served under Lord Wolte> 
ley in Canada, in Ashanti, in Egypt and in South Africa. The most interesting part of 
the book is perhaps to be found in the last three chapters which relate to the South 
African war. Disapproving of the British management of the situation, just before the 
outbreak of hostilities he resigned his command and returned to England. The auto- 
l>iography ends at this point but there is a brief supplementary chapter by his daughter. 
The book makes agreeable reading, both from the vigor of the narrative and from tiie 
frankness of the views expressed.

1909. Unwin. 

By a friend and fellow-countryman of Carlyle. First published in 1881. 

Masterly little biography; a picture deftly painted and pleasant, yet far above the 
mere art of the portrait-painter; appreciative to the verge of hero-worship, but stopping 
short at that point where hero-worship becomes idolatry: — a bit of work, indeed, which 
it would be hard to surpass for sympathy, delicacy, liberality of view, and wealth of 
friendly insight Read, as it should be read, after the "Reminiscences," it purifies the 
memory of certain ignoble moods. Condensed from Contemporary review, i88r.

Memoirs, with a preface by A. Herzen; tr. from the French. 1859. 

"As this work was not published until the outbreak of the Crimean War, the ques- 
tion of its genuineness was everywhere raised. From internal evidence it is now gener- 
ally accepted as authentic; though it was long ia the hands of Catlierine's imperial 
successors, and the proof that it was not tampered with is not quite complete. The 
volume has to do almost exclusively with Catherine's early years. But it is a most 
extraordinary uncovering of Russian court life. The imbecility of Peter the Third, the 
dissimulation and ambition of his wife, the mixture of barbarism and brutality that 
everywhere prevailed, arc nowhere else more graphically portrayed." Adams's Manual 
of historical literature.

maintain that his hero committed no faults, but he strongly holds that he was far more

nothing more than an entrance into the broader fields of social and political history, 
where it was permitted him to disport himself at will . . . He seemed, moreover, constatu*

far transcended partisan accomplishment, have made their impress upon the American 
people and the world ... Sympadietic speakers and writers have told much, also, of his

goes entirely unmentioned: but the book is not a biography. . .Mr. Parker's. . .are not the 
only recollections the book contains. Others of Cleveland's friends have contributed to 
his store, and perhaps the most valuable of all are certain of Cleveland's own, given 
from time to time in conversation, dealing with some of the most interesting episodes 
of his career and with the best-known of his contemporaries. And yet, although 
thoroughly reminiscential, the book is not light and gossipy, or of a newspaper or maga*

He emigrated to America in 1792 and began the publication of "Porcupine's gazette," 
which upheld the Federal side in politics. Twice prosecuted for libel, he returned to 
England and started his famous "Weekly political register," which, from being a Tory 
organ, gradually changed its politics and became the determined opponent of the govern-

Davidson (i 840-1 900) was a Scottish philosopher who lived much of his life in 
America. He conducted for many years in the Adirondacks a summer school for cul* 
tore sciences, and from 1898, a class of Russian Jews in New York city. The book 
contains, beside the sketch of his life, reminiscences by William James and others, a 
number of documents relating to his sociological projects in London and New York and 
some letters about his philosophical studies.

Intimate passages are rare, and as a rule the letters move in the peculiar field of 
generalization that makes most of the correspondences of his age neither quite literature 
nor quite familiar self- revelation. The letters that passed from man to man in those dayi 
were written not so much to acquaint the recipient with the details of the sender's life, 
as to foster the ideal of friendship, and it is with this understanding that we must ap* 
proach Donne's letters. Mr Merrill's explanatory and historical notes show judgment

biography of a mind, and it was these daily entries that he drew upon for the raw

Fessenden (1806-69) was one of the leaders of the Republican party through the 
antislavery struggle, the Civil war and reconstruction. The records of these events are 
found only in part in these volumes, but what is lacking in the way of history is more 
than made good by private letters and memoranda of the senator, giving us hit inmost 
thoughts at critical periods and portraying his personality as no other hand could do. 
The arrangement of the matter is defective, but the matter itself is of the first class.

"Fr^nilly... while not a conspicuous figure in the history of the Revolution, was 
acquainted with those who were. He was a typical product of the privileged class of the 
old regime, a young man-about-town with no other purpose in life than to shine in 
society. His 'Recollections,' which were begun only in 1837, *^ow a remarkably keen 
memory, particularly for small but picturesque details, but they are so deeply dyed in 
aristocratic prejudice that he would be a bold historian who would be willing to rest 
content with such a source for any incident which it recounts." Nation, 1909.

Franklin, Fabian. Life of Daniel Coit Gilman. 1910. Dodd. 

Mr Gilman (1831-1908) scored more, and more variona, successes than any other 
man who ever dealt with education in America. Others may have equaled him in the 
quali^ of their service, but none conducted so many important enterprises so sue* 
cessfuUy. Deeply associated with the organization of the Sheffield Scientific School 
at New Haven, with the upbuUdlng of the University of California, the foundation of 
Johns Hopkins University, and of its Medical School, he found energy at seventy to 
inaugurate the work of the Carnegie Institution, and in the last year of his life he 
practically gave shape to the Russell Sage Foundation for sociological and charitable 
investigation. In treating such a career, the biographer had no choice but to merge 
the hero in his causes. This Dr Franklin, a former Johns Hopkins colleague, has 
done, adding as a sort of supplement a selection from his intimate correspondence, and 
a brief sketch of his family life by Mrs Gilman. Dr Franklin has set forth with admi- 
rable orderliness and lucidity the chief activities of a wied and complicated life.

The author of this fascinating book of reminiscence was bom in England in 1848. 
The next year his father emigrated to America and settled in the Illinois country. There 
^e sensitive and keenly observant boy grew to manhood. The thread of incident run-

but the last chapters have slight connection with what has gone before. Three chapters 
are given to Fremont and his experiences, and there is an admirable description of the 
Lincoln-Douglas debate, and of the dty of St. Louis about i860. It is a matter of regret

"To those who still practice the moribund art of hobnobbing with books, of being 
intimate with them and running in on them for informal converse, the volume offers 
endless possibilities of intellectual stimulus and pleasant intercourse. Nine-tenths of the 
coUection are letters to Basil Hall Chamberlain, the noted and devoted student of Japan 
and guide, philosopher and familiar mental crony of Heam's Japanese years. In these 
letters Heam has almost literally poured out his mind to his friend. The comments of a 
keen critic of literature and of life, the subtle characterizations of an intuitively 
sympathetic observer, the whimsies of a child-like and sensitive imagination, and the 
joyous discoveries and puzzled bewilderments of a delver into alien mysteries, all tumble 
over one another in the fine disarray of an untrammeled spontaneity and with the un- 
sought perfection of trained faculties at play." Life, 1911.

Dr Gould approaches the subject from a novel point of view. He is an eye special- 
ist, well known for a series of studies in which he has derived the eccentricities of 
various geniuses from faulty vision. In this respect Hearn, with his one eye intensely 
myopic, offered a tempting field which the oculist could not avoid. In the actual details 
of Hearn's life, Dr Gould presents not much that is new. The most valuable parts of 
the book are those in which Heam's literary activities are traced. Besides a long and 
complete analysis of all his published works, with extracts from the reviews of the time, 
there is also a full bibliography, which includes even the manuscripts left by Hearn.

and no explanatory notes are supplied in the English version. In spite of defects, how-

Sympathetic narrative of Jacqueline's stormy, melodramatic career. In spite of the

which Burgundian power was built up in the Netherlands. Many illustrations.

Domestic life of Thomas Jefferson; comp. from family letters and

"When the great collection of Jefferson's manuscripts was sold to the United States 
goremment, there was reserved a mass of papers which were deemed to be of such a 
private nature as to possess no value in the national archives, and to belong more proper- 
ly to the family. These eventually came into the possession of Jefferson's great-grand* 
daughter, and they form the rauon d'itre of this book. It possesses the merits and de- 
merits which might be expected, the documents being of positive value, and the family 
recollections and traditions of distinct interest; but the book is faulty in method, being 
both ill-proportioned and disjointed. It is, therefore, far more valuable to the maker 
than to the reader of history." L^rned's Literature of American history.

While nowhere calling in question the sincerity of his heroine, M. France belittlea 
the part she played in the public events of 1429-30. He attempts to explain away all 
the spiritual side of her history and represents the Maid as an heroic but weak creature, 
a visionary, whose illusions physical science can account for. He attempts to clear away 
the mystery that surrounds her life by advancing the theory that she acted under the 
advice of some unknown person.

Lord Kelvin (i8a4*i907), one of the very few men raised to the British peerage 
for purely scientific achievements, was professor of natural philosophy at Glasgow 
University from 1846 to 1899. The direct successor of Newton, he launched into the 
world the principle of conservation of energy, on which the whole fabric of modem 
physics was based. The world knows him best as the man who has shown how prac- 
tically to measure electric and magnetic quantities, and has made it possible to link 
together distant continents by the electric telegraph. 

"Full and authoritative account of his life and work. This biography was begun 
during the life of Lord Kelvin, and, in fact, had his cooperation; after his death, the 
original sketch was greatly extended by the materials furnished from his letters, diaries, 
and other documents put at the biographer's disposal. In addition to the abundant 
record thus available. Professor Thompson had the high privilege of being a personal 
friend of the great physicist. The result is a book which will appeal strongly not 
only to men of science, who have been eagerly awaiting it, but also to all those who 
have an interest in the thought of the nineteenth century." Nation, igio.

Cortissoz, Royal. John La Farge; a memoir and a study. 191 1. 

It should be said in praise and definition of Mr Cortissoz's adroit and sympathetic 
study that no opinion and no phrase in it would disappoint La Farge himself. It gives 
admirably the subtle and vivid thinker, the fastidious talker, the delightful man of the 
world, who was perhaps the greatest social figure in America of our time. Neither a 
record nor a criticism, but a character study. Aim is to make us hear aiid see the man; 
a knowledge of his works is presupposed and the delightful effect of the book depends 
precisely upon this limiution of the field. Condensed from Nation, 1911.

Certain aspects of Liszt's life and art are studied without strict adherence to chrono-

exhaustive biography, is admirable and the book gives a vivid impression of this many- 
sided musical genius, his career and the adulation which he reeved. There are ia6 
pages of extracts from the writings of men and women who have known Liszt, analyses 
of some of his most important compontions and numerous illustrations.

his commission to be brigadier-general was signed on the day that he was killed at the 
battle of Cedar Creek. To a singular degree everyone who came in contact with Lowell 
seems to have felt the fineness of his spirit. Mr Emerson prefaces the letters, many of

found in them. . .The notes are few and far between. . .the meagre fragments of personal 
narrative which occasionally head the chapters read like quotations from an indifferent 
article in a biographical dictionary . . . On the other hand, those who know Lyell's books

An excellent book, worthy to be read by every lover of good English. Mr Hutton 
hsa set himself to write fact as fiction, endeavoring to give an impression of the first 
part of the 15th century without using a single incident which is not authenticated. His 
sibject is that strangest and yet most typical of Italian despots; and his mouthpiece is 
a certain Pietro Sanseverino, a wholly imaginary person, but one, nevertheless, who tells 
the story of his patron's life as seriously as Monsieur Yriarte himself has done, and 
certainly with greater accuracy. Condensed from Nation, 1906,

Sir Horace Mann (1701-86) was for 46 years British envoy at Florence. During 
this time he kept up a steady correspondence with his friend Horace Walpole. 

"Lord Dover describes the letters on Mann's side as Sroluminous, but partieularly 
devoid of interest, as they are written in a dry, heavy style, and consist almost entirely 
of trifling details of forgotten Florentine history*. . .Their contents are summarised in 
two volumes published by Dr. Doran... They abound in accounts of serenades, fites, 
masquerades, court ceremonial and Italian eccentricities." Dictionary of national biog- 

Mansfield, Richard. ga M343W 

Wilstach, Paul. Richard Mansfield, the man and the actor. 1908. 


"Bibliography," p.485-490. 

Mr Wilstach was associated with Mr Mansfield (i 857-1907) for many years, was 
devoted to his interests and writes of him with an unwavering and self-evident partiality. 
Though packed with detail and somewhat disorderly in arrangement, the book succeeds 
in revealing his powerful personality and versatile genius, and affords glimpses, through 
the letters to Mrs Mansfield and his son, of a tender human side which was little known 
to the world.

from his letters. 2v. 1910. Moffat. 

"Worthy memorial of a brilliant actor by his trusted friend and critic Volume 1 
is devoted to the life, practically commencing with Mansfield's initial New York succecs 
in 1883; volume 2 takes up his important roles in order. The book is autboritatiYe in 
its statements of fact, sympathetic and just in its estimate of Mansfield's complex char- 
acter and the nature and scope of his genius, and contains examples of felicitous dt- 
scription and penetrating analysis that rank it with Mr Winter's best critical work. The 
appendix contains a forty-three page chronology and a note on 'The gentle art of 
plagiarism,' referring to Paul Wilstach, whose interesting life of Mansfield, thougli 
fuller on the biographical side, will be critically superseded by this authorized biography. 
The illustrations consist mostly of portraits of Mansfield in his various character*.'*

"Some notes on the private life of John Stuart Mill," by Mary Taylor, v.i, p.39-46. 

The interest of this correspondence, which covers the period from 1829 to 1873, 
ia tfireefold. The letters tell much about Mill's own character which his autobiography 
does not reveal, they throw light on tome of the leading literary figures of hit time, 
including Carlyle, Sterling and Bulwer, and they give a clear and direct impression of 
the public questions of that day in England.

Sanderson Miller was an English country gentleman with a reputation as an amateur 
ardiitect and a capacity for friendship of which these letters are a faithful record. 
They seldom deal with public affairs but are largely occupied with architectural matters, 
in regard to which Miller's friends often appealed to him for advice. Prominent among 
die letters are those of Deane Swift, cousin and biographer of the great dean. Miller's 
replies hare not been preserved and we thus get a curiously reflected portrait of the 
n as he appears in the minds of hb friends.

. . . From the egotism which is the distinguishing mark of most theatrical autobiographies 
it is almost entirely free... But few of her admirers, perhaps, realize the trials and ob*

The author was the singing teacher of Moltke's nephew and a frequent visitor in the 
Moltke household. 

'*These recollections of one of last century's greatest personalities are set down 
with a certain natveti, which however nowise detracts from their interest; and while 
they are very modestly put forward and do not for a moment claim to be a 'great book,' 
there is yet something Boswellian in their author's adoring attitude to Moltke." Outlook

"There is a touch of the Paston letters about the innumerable quaint details of

"Passages selected from letters, state papers and conversations, and arranged chron- 
ologically under the dates to which they refer, not under the dates of utterance. They 
form an interesting but incomplete and disconnected autobiography, but not a 'diary* as 
the sub-title states. Its value is lessened by the editor's failure to mention sources and 
to tell what versions have gone to make up composite entries, and the absence of context 
renders many passages vague. A work of little or no historical value, but of decided 
interest as a psychological study." A. L. A. booklist, tgii. 

Napoleon I, emperor of the French. rga Niagna 

Napoleon's letters to Josephine, 1 796-1812; for the first time col- 
lected and translated, with notes social, historical and chronological, 
from contemporary sources by H. F. Hall. 1901. Dent. 

These letters are neither new nor of much importance. The framework of the 
book is an elaborate diary of Napoleonic and European history from 1796 to 181 4, in 
which the correspondence is inserted in batches. Between February 1797 and May 1800, 
no letters are available, and another complete vacuum reaches from August 181 1 to the 
date of Josephine's death in 181 4. The collection may be accepted as generally authentic. 
The topics of the letters are always the weather, health, clothes, presents, debts, grumb- 
lings, and other intimate personal details, the whole written in an unaffected good- 
natured style. The exhaustive notes are a delightful omnium gatherum of Napoleonic 
lore, but are often foreign to the context. Condensed from Spectator, 1902.

Palmer, George Herbert Life of Alice Freeman Palmer. 1908. 

The work of Alice Freeman Palmer (1855-1902) was of historical importance in 
the develoimient of education in America. Becoming president of Wellesley College 
at the age of a6, she shaped its policies in the direction they have since followed. She 
was a member of the Massachusetts State Board of Education and for three years dean 
of the Woman's Department of the University of Chicago. All these interests are 
fully treated in this biography, vrritten by her husband, but they are subordinated to 
the intimate and penetrating study of Mrs Palmer as a woman.

Under the sympathetic hands of his biographer, whose tone is that of a fervent Re- 
publican, the story of Mr Piatt's career in the Senate from 1879 to 1905 has become 
almost a history of national legislation for that period. Senator Piatt was one of the 
last of our patriarchal statesmen, representing a kind of ancient severity and virtue, men 
of deeds not of words. For a score of years he spent himself devotedly upon matters of 
high public concern in which little individual glory was to be won. It was he who put 
the Patent office upon an independent basis. Of the cause of international copyright 
he made himself the champion and for years he served on the Indian committee. Con-

in its day the most sincere, most faithful and most Gothic work that had been executed 
in England since the 15th century. His father, Augustus Charles Pugin (i76a-i83a)

Reagan (181 8-1 905) was a self-made man who rose to high rank under the ancitm

Q>nfederacy at Montgomery, the Civil war as viewed by an active and efficient cabinaC 
officer in Richmond, and the problems of reconstruction. The most interesting portion

. . .are not the most vivid, though they contain a very interesting picture of the author's 
birthplace, the little dead town of Tr^guier. . .It is when he comes to dip into his own 
spiritual history that M. Renan shows himself a masterly narrator . . . The chapters on 
the two seminaries in which he spent the first years of his residence in Paris, Saint

vord in the humblest homes of his native Steirmark, but whose works are read through-

development of his hero not only in his books, but among the people of his native

"Qnite u much a picture of Mr. Chesterton as a study of Mr. Shaw. The two- 
edfcd quality of critictsm has never made a more striking or amusing display of itself 
than in this analysis of the supposedly. . .Shavian. . .characteristics. . . As to the plan and 
scope of the book, it begins with a characteristic assertion: 'Most people either say that 
they agree with Bernard Shaw or that they do not understand him. I am the only 
person who understands him, and I do not agree with him.' Then follow. . .chapters on 
Mr. Shaw as an Irishman, as a Puritan, and as a Progressive; but the greater part of 
the book is devoted to "The Critic,' The Dramatist,' and 'The Philosopher.' Hence it is, 
as was natural, more a study of the writer than of the man." Dial, 1909.

ment of value. It brings together as many of the facts about Mr Shawns life, character 
and opinions as he wishes to be generally known. There is no other authority (191 x) 
for the interesting period of his childhood in Dublin, when the love of music seems to 
have been his first interest, nor has so much been told before of his early literary work 
in London, of the genesis of the Fabian Society and of his journalistic career. Contains

from which to write the poet's biography. The result was a surprise and a disappoint- 
ment Hogg took unwarrantable liberties with his materials, and Shelley's representa- 
tives, fearing that the prosecution of the work would result in stereotyping a caricature, 
withdrew the documents on which Hogg had depended for continuing it. 

"Hogg's offences as a biographer are grave... Yet how much leas we should hare 
known of the youthftd Shelley if Hogg had not written ... The book is indispensable for 
one who would know Shelley; and yet for one who would know Shelley fully and ari^t 
it is wholly insufficient. It is a fragment not only in the sense that it tells no more 
than a portion of the story; it is fragmentary also in its presentation of Shelley'i char* 
acter." Edward Dowden, in introduction.

place. These memoirs have only once been reprinted and have been for many years out 
of print Mr Brett- Smith's introduction gives an account of Peacock's association with 
Shelley. Peacock's record contains many particulars that are not to be found in other 
accounts of Shelley, but in his desire for impartiality he sometimes appears to fail in 
sympathy. As a clear and circumstantial chronicle of the chief erenta in the poet's life 
it is especially valuable. Condensed from Outlook (London), 1910.

of treatment has as yet been applied, in any substantial form, to the career of SheUey

history. It is the source of the classical story of Sidney's death; it is the best likeness 
of the young "president of learning and chivalry" which has been left us by a con-

"It was of course inevitable that a large part of these two solid volumes should be 
devoted to matters exclusively concerning the Roman Church and, in a Icia degree, 
Anglican controversialists. The Cardinal was... a power in the public as well as the 
religious life of England. He was pre-eminently representative of the English Roman 
Catholics, and stood far apart, in politics as in churchmanship, from the Irish hierardiy. 
The materials for the present work consist mainly of the Cardinal's private papers and 
public utterances, supplemented by the personal recollections of Father Considine, S. J., 
his Spiritual Director." Outlook (London), 1910.

My life; authorized translation from the German. 2v. 191 1. Dodd. 

This autobiography was privately printed in 1871 and the half dozen copies given 
to intsmate friends, republication for the world at large being deferred till years after 
Wagner's death. "Mein leben" closes with the year 1864, but, thou^^ a torso, it takes its 
place at once among the world's great autobiographies. It is very full in regard to 
Wagner's childhood and youth and much of it is devoted to a narrative of the ill luck 
which pursued him* through the greater part of his career, because of his unfortunate 
determination to be a composer. The author tells a plain tale sparing himself no more 
than others when occasion for censure arrives. He gives glimpses into the workshop of 
bis genius and throws a flood of light on the musical conditions of his time in most 
European countries; and finally, what many readers will relish mMt, there are many 
eommenta on great musicians who befriended or opposed him — Liszt, Schumann, 
Mendelssohn, Beriioz, Meyerbeer, Bulow, Saint-Saens and a host of others. Condensed 
from Nation, 1911.

Neumann, Angelo. Erinnerungen an Richard Wagner. 1907. 

The most important biographic contribution to musical literature since the beginning 
of the century, with the exception of Wagner's Letters to Frau Wesendonck. It con- 
tains a large number of the master's letters which have never before been printed, and 
it gives so many interesting glimpses of life behind the scenes — ^both literally and figura- 
tively — that in a short time it has reached its fourth edition. Neumann began his career 
as a baritone, 50 years ago. He became a Wagner enthusiast during the Vienna con- 
certs in 1862 and in 1876 he became joint manager, with August Forster, of the Leipzig 
Stadttheater, and from that time on he played a role in the life of Wagner, the im- 
portance of which has heretofore been known to few. The Leipzig performances were 
a brilliant success, and so were those Neumann gave at the Victoria Theatre in Berlin. 
Neumann afterward gained Wagner's consent for his project of a traveling Wagner 
tfMatre. The adventures which befell them in Paris, London, and the other European 
cities down to Italy take up the remaining pages of Neumann's reminiscences. CoU"

Sir Henry Wotton (i 568-1 639) is familiar to lovers of English literature through

Izaak Walton, prefixed to his collection of Wotton's works. Wotton passed the active 
years of his life in high diplomatic office and ended his days as provost of Eton. Mr 
Smith has changed his vague image into a vivid portrait. He has come only a little 
short of producing a literary masterpiece. He devotes two hundred and twenty-fire 
pages to a compactly detailed biography of Wotton. This is followed by Wotton's let- 
ters, more than half of which are here printed for the first time. Condensed from
