Ana ly sis of the History of Germany. By Dawson W. Turner,

D.O.T.,- (Longmans.)—This little volume is constructed on:. a principle- which

has been already employed -by the author in various historical works.

The novelty-in it oonsists in giving with eachleading person -or *vent a quotation from some recognized authority that shall present graphically

to the mind his or its character. Thus to a certain extent is combined with the conciseness of au analysis, the-interest of a regular history. In the appendix are given at greater length extracts from writers of eminence on the most conspicuous persons and incidents of the 'history. The little work seems to have been very carefully prepared, alad bo very useful as a text-book or book of reference.
