Follies of the Year. By John Leech. With some notes

by Shirley Brooks. (Bradbury, Evans, and Co.)—It is enough to announce that this volume contains the series of illustrations to Punch's Pocket-Book from 1844 to 1864, and that Mr. Shirley Brooks has contributed some amusing gossip concerning the events of each year. The work is, as he says, quite out of the jurisdiction of criticism.
