London of To - Day. By Charles Eyre Pascoe. (Simpkin, Marshall, and

Co.)—This is the ninth annual edition, and has, we are told, been" revised and in large part rewritten." The preface is certainly new, and as certainly entertaining. The book, it will be understood, is primarily intended for the American reader, though the English also may read it with profit,—the Londoner especially, who naturally knows less about his native or adopted city than any one else. This is a most readable, besides being a most useful, book, and is admirably illustrated.
