Europe in the Nineteenth Century,- an Outline History. 
By E. Lipson. (London, A. & C. Black, 1916. Pp. 298.) 

In a volume of three hundred pages the writer gives an "analyti- 
cal rather than narrative" account of the various larger European 
states from the fall of Napoleon to the outbreak of the present war. 
The interest is centered primarily in the internal development of the 
peoples on the continent; and the attention is centered at all times on 
the great problems of the nations. It fills a need in the history world 
in this method of presentation; and it is to be highly recommended to 
advanced classes in the history of the period. J. N. Bowman. 

Historical Records and Studies. By the United States Catholic 
Historical Society. (New York, by the Society, 1917. Pp. 208.) 

Volume X in this series is in large measure a memorial to Charles 
George Heberman, who died at his home in New York City, on August 
24, 1916. He was chosen president of the United States Catholic 
Historical Society in 1898. His devotion to the work prompted his 
unanimous re-election year after year until his death. He is given 
credit for much of the work that has been published by the society. 
In this volume there are several of his studies and many appreciations 
of the man from the pens of others. 

Stone Ornaments Used by Indians in the United States and 
Canada. By Warren K. Moorehead. (Andover, The Andover Press, 
1917. Pp. 448.) 

This is a monumental work, beautifully printed and sumptuously 
illustrated. While it has a general interest wherever Indian life is 
studied the greatest interest in the book will be among those in the 
Mississippi Valley and the Eastern states. 

There are about a dozen references to the Pacific Coast. Two 
of these have a special significance. On page 403 the author says: 
"While it seems to the writer the Pacific Coast was settled first, and
