Spett• ant ortsmen. A Basis of Beeolliections- By Olasaies SAaettom

(Hurst and Brackett.)---Thist voltam et .stetthes .belongs to the old- fashioned school. The author is thoroughly in earnest, mid consequently rather longtwindett; ha likes to dwell an the details of the sport, ,and to make his readers quite at home in the scenee to which he introduces them. The book deals with, the usual subjects—deer-stalking in Scot- land; fishing and otter hunting in Wales; English field sports, and in- cludes besides some Australian experiences. Light in matter and hand- somely printed, it will not tam toe highly either the attention or the eyesight.
