A School Text - Book of Geography. By Lionel W. Lyell. (A.

and C. Black. 3s. 6d.)—This is likely to be a most useful book, the work of an expert in teaching, and filled with facts of con- venient importance. It is furnished with instructive diagrams,— for maps the student is very properly referred to the atlas, which exhibits direction of wind, rainfall, mountain elevations, and other physical conditions. The teacher will remember that it is a text book ; the illustrative matter he will largely supply out of his own resources.—We have received from Mr. E. Stanford, pub- lishing for the War Office, two Provisional Skeleton Maps of Southern Nigeria (6d. each).
