Metalwork and Enameling. By Herbert Maryon. (Chapman and Hall. 7s.

6d. net.)—This is called a practical treatise, and it appears to be so. The author writes clearly and in considerable detail. How far a craft can be learnt from a book is difficult to decide, but undoubtedly this work would be a great addition to practical study. At the end of the volume are reproductions of masterpieces of the art of the worker in precious metals, of the kind not to be found in the windows of Bond Street.
