Dod's Peerage, Baronetage, and Knightage (Whittaker and Co., 10s. 6d.)

is a comprehensive and convenient list, with particulars, of services and personal careers of all titled persons in the United Kingdom. The names are arranged in alphabetical order, irre- spective of the difference of class. Recent occurrences are re- corded up to the latest possible date.—The Catholic Directory (Burns and Oates, ls. 6d, net) gives in Part I. an Ecclesiastical Calendar, the information commonly found in an almanac, with an account of educational and other matters on which legislation has taken place ; and in Part II. the Hierarchy, the Sees and other ecclesiastical divisions, lists of Peers and Baronets of the Roman Catholic faith, and finally what may be described as a clergy list, territorial and personal.—The Schoolmasters' Year- book and Directory (Swan Sonnenschein and Co., 6s. net) contains a record of the legislation of the past year, and of events in the history of education, a list of schools, and a directory of school- masters.
