.A. third volume in a really great undertaking, In English

Homes, has been received from the publishers (Country Life). The price is £2 25. net The volume is equal to its predecessors;, more we ;need not say. There is no country which can match England for the varied beauty and dignity of its great houses. Wealth, the national taste for rural as opposed to city-life, andthe long-periods of political repose have worked together to bring about the result. When we seeit forcibly set forth in this way, scenes of grandeur and beauty, adequately presented in these highly artistic repro- ductions, we cannotfail to be deeply impressed.—With this-we may mention Warlei Garden in Spring and Summer, by Miss ,Willneett (Bernard Quaritch, 21s. net).
