"In these volumes Mr. Phillips has contributed what may be called a new chapter to the history of our great Civil War. Having fearlessly entered the boundless waste of the King's Pamphlets in the British Museum and of the State Papers at the Record Office,' he has given us in his first volume a sketch of the part which Wales and the Marches played in that great struggle, and in his second the proofs on which his sketch is based, in the shape of extracts from those pamphlets and records. It will suffice to give some notion of the toil which such a work exacts when we add that in the course of his inquiries Mr. Phillips has carefully overhauled ' every pamphlet and newspaper of the period, amounting to many thousands, as well as all the memoirs and collections bearing on the period, together with the vast collection of documents at the Record Office, which are still unindexed. Let us now consider the result of the labours of our author, as represented in these volumes."
This it proceeds to do in a review occupying two columns and a half, and
