and now brought up to date by Mr. Homer Morris; and an abridgment of the “Madame Thérèse of Erckmann-Chatrian," edited by Mr. C. Fontaine.

“ Abraham Lincoln: His Book,” just published by Messrs. McClure, Phillips & Co., is a facsimile reproduction of a small leather-covered memorandum book owned by Lincoln during the campaign of 1858. It reproduces both the newspaper clippings and the autograph notes which the owner put into it, and constitutes a curious and interesting souvenir of the great President.

“Who's Who” for 1901 appears with commendable promptitude, and is supplied in this country by the Macmillan Co. It is indispensable as a book of ref. erence concerning living Englishmen, and a sprinkling of American names gives it some degree of special usefulness on our side of the Atlantic. But this feature does not make our own“ Who's Who in America " any the less indispensable.

With close attention to the words and rhythms of the original, and an almost exact reproduction of the rhymes, Mr. J. M. Morrison has translated « The Poems of Leopardi,” into acceptable English. Only three of the thirty-four “Canti” are omitted from this version, which is to be commended for its faithfulness to the text, and for the not infrequent felicities of its diction. Messrs. Gay & Bird, London, are the publishers.

The second volume of Mr. Samuel Albert Link's “ Pioneers of Southern Literature," published by Messrs. Barbee & Smith, Nashville, deals with various war poets, humorists, and political writers, and with one great singer. The chapter on Poe will naturally attract the most attention, but the other chapters are the more valuable for students of our literature, merely because they present much information not easily accessible elsewhere.

NOTES. “ A Shorter Course in Munson Phonography," by Mr. James E. Munson, is a recent publication of Messrs. G. P. Putnam's Sons.

"An Elementary Grammar of the Spanish Language and “ An Elementary Spanish Reader,” both the work of Mr. L. A. Loiseaux, have just been published by Messrs. Silver, Burdett & Co.

Messrs. D. C. Heath & Co. publish “ A School Grammar of the English Language,” by Professor Edward A. Allen. It is an excellent book, prepared by a man who is both a sound scholar and an experienced teacher.

Herr Heyse's “ Das Mädchen von Treppi” (Heath), edited by Professor Edward S. Joynes, and Herr Heinrich Seidel's “Wintermärchen” (Holt), edited by Dr. Corinth Le Duc Crook, are German texts recently published.

Volume IV. of “The Letters of Cicero," in Mr. Evelyn S. Shuckburgh's translation, has just been publisbed by the Messrs. Macmillan as a number in the * Bohn Libraries," for which they are the agents in America.

The Macmillan Co. publish “Miscellanies,” by Edward FitzGerald, as a “Golden Treasury volume. Most of the matter has been reprinted before, but there are a few additions, and we are glad to have “ Euphranor" and the other things in this convenient form.

The Carnegie Library of Pittsburg send us a “Graded and Annotated Catalogue of Books in the Carnegie Library of Pittsburg for the use of the City Schools.” It is a most helpful publication, and other large city libraries would do well to imitate the example thus set for them.

The Oxford edition of “ La Divina Commedia,” published by Mr. Enrico Frowde, contains no word of English. It gives us Dr. Moore's text and Mr. Paget Toynbee's index of proper names, all in a beautifullyprinted and tastefully-bound volume at a moderate price.

The Macmillan Co. publish new editions of “The Prairie ” and “The Pathfinder,” in volumes having a semi-holiday appearance, with illustrations by Mr. Charles E. Brock. We are not informed as to whether these two books are the advance guard of a complete Cooper, or merely sporadic issues.

That old-time favorite, Sir George Webbe Dasent's translation of “ The Story of Burnt Njal,” has been reproduced by Messrs. E. P. Dutton & Co. in an attracive edition, which, we regret to say, omits the maps and plans, the appendices and index, and has even cut down the preface to much less than its original dimensions.

“Cinq Scenes de le Comédie Humaine” (Heath), edited by Dr. B. W. Wells; Lamartine's “Graziella” (Heath), edited by Professor F.M. Warren; Corneille's * Nicomede” (Macmillan), edited by Professor James A. Harrison; and M. André Theuriet's “La SainteCatherine” (Jenkins), unedited, are the latest French texts for school use received by us.

The American Book Co. publish “ The Elements of Latin,” by President W. R. Harper and Mr. Isaac B. Burgess. The same publishers send us other textbooks, as follows: “Outlines of Roman History," by Dr. William C. Morey; a revised edition of the “ Mannal of the Constitution of the United States," prepared a quarter of a century ago by Israel Ward Andrews,
