Practical General Continental Guide. By an Englishman Abroad. (Simpkin and

Marshall.)— This is an excellent five-shillings' worth. The editor is thoroughly practical, condescends to very small minutiss, is, as far as we have observed, correct in his information, has a good collection of second as well as first-class inns, and his book will enable a traveller who is not particularly anxious about the details of art and history to see what is to be seen on the Continent generally in the shortest period and at the least expense.
