The Imitation of Christ. Fac-simile edition. (Elliot Stock.)—A beautifully printed

and bound edition, in imitation of the original, preserved in the Royal Library at Brussels. Every sheet has been reproduced by photography, and the paper is identical with that of the original Dutch edition. The book is not, of course, legible to the ordinary reader, being in the most cramped of black-letter types, but it will be greatly valued by all who are curious either in typography or bookbinding.
