A Catalogue of the Antiquities and Works of Art Exhibited at Iron- mongers' Hall, London, in May, 1861. Part L Compiled by a Com- mittee of the London and Middlesex Archaeological Society. With numerous illustration& London. 1863. A most sumptuous publica- tion, and admirably executed, but it is not easy to see the object of printing in such a form the catalogue of a merely temporary exhibi- tion, many of the objects in which appear, moreover, to have been of

very little archaeological value, as bronze figures of Frederick the Great and of Napoleon Buonaparte.
