We must be content with mentioning the publication of a

handsome volume which many doubtless will be glad to possess, —Of God and His Creatures, an Annotated Translation (with some Abridgment) of the "Summa Contra Gentiles" of St. Thomas Aquinas, by Joseph Rickaby, S.J. (G. Bell and Sons and Burns and Oates, 21s. net). It is needless to say that Father Rickaby's notes add greatly to the value of the reprint, or, to put it in a way which he will probably prefer, to its adaptation to the needs of the reader.
