Transactions of the Royal Historical Society. New Series, Vol. XII. London: Longmans, Green & Co. 1898. 8vo. 289 pp.—This volume of Transactions includes, among other papers, the Presidential address of Sir M. E. Grant Duff; Marston Moor (dealing with questions concerning the numbers and order of the opposing forces) by Mr. C. H. Firth ; The • National Study of Naval History' (in which Prof. J. K. Laughton speaks chiefly of colonization and sea power and Mr. Hubert Hall deals with the exigencies of research); and “The Sheriffs' Farm' (an interesting paper concerning the method and the results of calculating the farms of Henry II) by Mr. G. J. Turner.

Memorials : Part II. Personal and Political, 1865-1895. By ROUNDELL PALMER, Earl of Selborne, Lord High Chancellor. Two Vols. London: Macmillan & Co. 1898. 8vo. xii and 496 pp. ; vol. II, vii and 502 pp. (258. net.) The interest of these volumes, as might be expected, is more political than professional; but the chapters devoted to the Alabama arbitration and the Judicature Act, and the series of appreciations of Lord Selborne's powers as an advocate and a judge which appears at the end of the second volume under the head of 'In Memoriant,' may be singled out as of particular interest to lawyers, and more or less professional anecdotes and estimates of persons occur throughout the book. There is a grotesque misprint at p. 482, where Horace, as Englished by Lord Selborne, is made to address Venus as ' Thor (1. thou) if willing, Queen of Grace.'

Opinions of the press. One of the most ambitious, and ought to be, when it is complete, one of the most generally useful legal works which the present century has produced.'— Literature.

“The rapidity and fullness which mark this compilation are remarkable. As the work grows it is seen to be a perfect storehouse of the principles established and illustrated by our case law and that of the United States.'--Law Times.

* By this time this series has become so widely known, and doubtless appreciated, that it becomes unnecessary to do much more than chronicle the appearance of the new volume, 10 state the contents, and to say that its workmanship is quite up to the former level.'—Laiv Journal. * A work of unusual value and interest.

Each leading case or group of cases is preceded by a statement in bold type of the rule which they are quoted as establishing. The work is happy in conception, and this first volume shows that it will be adequately and success. fully carried out.'--Solicitors' Journal.

• The general scheme appears to be excellent, and its execution reflects the greatest credit on everybody concerned. It may, indeed, be said to constitute, for the present, the high-water mark of the science of book-making.–Saturday Review.

‘A Cyclopaedia of law .. most ably executed, learned, accurate, clear, concise ; but perhaps its chief merit is that it impresses on us what the practising English lawyer is too apt to forget that English law really is a body of principles.'— The British Review.
