An Atlas of Textual Criticism. By Edward Ardron Hutton. (Cambridge

University Press. 5s. net.)—It would not be right to pass over this very laborious work without notice. It is to quote the sub-title, "An attempt to show the mutual relationship of the authorities for the text of the New Testament up to about A.D. 1000." The great families of texts, Western, Alexandrian, and Syriac, are described and appreciated, and there are elaborate tables showing in map fashion the varieties of reading. But it is impossible to give our readers any adequate idea of what the book really is.
