A Dictionary of Battles, by T. B. Harbottle (Swan Sonnenschein

and Co., 7s. 6d.), contains the record, with place, names of com- manders, numbers, and date, of some fifteen or sixteen hundred battles, from the earliest times down to the present. Colonel Harbottle, who was a diligent worker in this kind of work, did not live to correct the proofs. Trasumenus is omitted ; Camelodunum should be Camalodunum.
