Famous British Regiments. By Major Arthur Griffiths. (T. Fisher 1Tnwin.

2s. 6d.)—This book is not exactly what the reader might be led to expect by the title. Its scope is, indeed. somewhat wider, for it gives an account of the great divisions of our Army, but it is not the less interesting for that. The first seven chapters are given to the "Artillery," "Life Guards and Horse Guards," "Lancers and Hussars" (where are the Dragoons ?), Guards, Rifles, Fusiliers, Highlanders, some Line regiments. We miss the Engineers. The book is somewhat slight, written, we imagine, in haste, to meet a present demand, but will doubtless be welcomed by many readers.
