Fjord, Isle, and Tor. By Edward Spender. (Charlton Tucker.)— These

papers are reprints from the London Quarterly Review and other periodicals. They are sketches, which strike us as being in a remarkable degree practical and useful, of travel in Norway, the Scilly Islands, and Cornwall. Each paper is followed by an itinerary, containing the writer's actual experience, showing what he did and how he fared, and how he might have done and fared better. Altogether, a very sensible book, which anyone who meditates a first visit to the countries treated of should provide himself with.
