TOPICS IN LEADING PERIODICALS.
« First Studies of Plant Life,” by Professor George F. Atkinson, is a nature-book for children, published by Messrs. Ginn & Co.
Tennyson's “Idylls of the King,” edited by Dr. William T. Vlymen, is the latest addition to the “ Pocket Classics" of the Macmillan Co.
Mr. John Lane's “ Flowers of Parnassus" series of booklets now includes an Omar, in Fitz Gerald's paraphrase, with illustrations by Mr. Herbert Cole.
Mr. R. H. Russell publishes a selection of the “ Racing Rhymes and Other Verses” of Adam Lindsay Gordon, selected and arranged by Mr. T. O. Guen. Berkeley's “ Principles of Human Knowledge ” is
” added by the Open Court Publishing Co. to their “Religion of Science Library,” which now appears in an attractive new cover.
Messrs. A. J. Holman & Co., Philadelphia, send us a "Self-Pronouncing Bible Dictionary” for the vestpocket. It is indexed, printed on thin paper, and provided with covers of flexible leather.
“ A Text-Book of Psychology for Secondary Schools," by Dr. Daniel Putnam, and “How to Teach Reading and Composition," by Dr. J. J. Burns, are the latest educational publications of the American Book Co.
“Qualitative Chemical Analysis, Organic and Inorganic,” by Dr. F. Mollwo Perkin, is published by Messrs. Longmans, Green, & Co. The same publishers also send us a book of “ Exercises in Natural Philosophy," by Professor Magnus Maclean.
The latest addition to the “ Temple Classics " series (Macmillan) is a reprint of White's "Selborne," supplied with notes, marginalia, index, etc., by Mr. Charles Weekes. A dainty photogravure frontispiece and a number of Bewick's wood-cuts illustrate the volume.
“ The Earliest Lives of Dante,” being translations from Boccaccio and Arctino, made by Mr. James Robinson Smith, is one of the “Yale Studies in English,” and is published by Messrs. Henry Holt & Co. While not exactly a study in English literature, the publication is a desirable one, and we are not disposed to quarrel over its proper designation.
Mr. Maurice Hewlett's “ Earthwork out of Tuscany' now appears in a revised edition (the third) as a volume of the familiar “Eversley" series, issued by the Macmillan Co. The book is altogether worthy of inclusion in the ranks of “that good company which wears the crimson of Eversley,” and we are glad to have at last an American edition in such fitting form.
The Third Book of the series of geographies prepared for the Macmillan Co. by Messrs. Ralph S. Tarr and Frank M. McMurry, has for its special title, “ Europe and Other Continents, with Review of North America." Like its predecessors, this volume is richly and attractively illustrated. With such books as these available for teachers, the cumbersome old-time geography ought soon to become a memory of the educational past.
First published in 1896 as a volume of the “ Ex Libris Series,” Mr. Walter Crane's work on “The Decorative Illustration of Books" has come to occupy a place of authority in its own field; the wealth of illustrative examples, no less than the bistorical and critical value of the text, making it an indispensable handbook for the student or book-lover. A new and cheaper edition of the work, with some slight revisions in the text, is issued in attractive form by the Macmillan Co.
