A Flower Anthology. Selected and illustrated. by Alfred Rawlings. (Philip

Lee Warner. 5s. net.)-Twelve flowers have been chosen, and for each various passages in prose and verse have been gathered. The choice of these is all that can be desired ; there is not one which we are not glad to see again. As to the arrangement we do not feel so certain. There is something like a chronological order, but the anemone should not come before the aconite and the snowdrop. As to the pictures, we should like to have seen more flower and less landscape. But it is a very pretty little book.
