Constable's Hand - Atlas of India. Under the direction of J'. G.

Bartholomew, F.R.G.S. (Archibald Constable.)—This handsome volume—so different in shape and get-up from the clumsy atlases of a former period—ought to be found very useful by all who take an interest in India for political, commercial, or scientific reasons. It consists of sixty maps and plans, in which are represented the leading districts of India, its cities, its geo- logical features, its animal, vegetable, and mineral products, its railways, telegraphs, and navigable canals, and even its Christian mission-stations. This handbook of India—for it is nothing less—is rounded off by an admirable general index, and by tables analysing and adding to the information given in the census returns for 1891.
