We have received a new edition, "abridged," of Life and

Letters of Brooke Foss IVestcott, Sometime Bishop of Durham, by his Son, Arthur Westcott (Macmillan and Co., Ss. 6d. net). We feel for Mr. Westcott's difficulty in omitting where all was so full of value and interest. The advantage of a more accessible book must be considered to outweigh the loss.
