Joscelyn's Pictures. By the Hon. Mrs. Alan Brodrick. (Warren ind

Son, Winchester.)—We are glad to see a second edition of this very pleasing little volume, all the more so because, by some accident, the first issue escaped attention. "Joscelyn" is a young woman, hopelessly crippled by an accident, who occupies her enforced leisure by picturing to herself, from hints of what she can externally see from her windows, scenes of Nature, varying as the months advance. These pictures, and the thoughts which they suggest, she illustrates from life and applies to life. It is a book which, if carefully and sympathetically read, cannot fail to enrich heart and mind.
