Burke's Peerage, Baronetage, and Knightage. (Harrison and Sons. 42s.)—Within its
liberal boundaries of 2,288 pages of the largest octavo size, and closely printed, Burke is able to include a vast amount of matter. It is a history as well as a book of social precedence. Ancestors, direct or collateral, of noble families and distinguished persons in general are named, while "every titled and decorated individual, and every person in remainder, how-
ever remotely, to hereditary honours, is given his place with his belongings," the "belongings" comprehending in many cases those who are not in any succession. The " Key " is, in particular, a very remarkable compilation, with its thousands of names, each marked with its proper precedence. The informa- tion seems to have been brought up to the latest possible date.
