The growing number of students of Russian may be glad

to know of a new Grammar of the Russian Language compiled by a competent scholar, Mr. Leonard Magnus (John Murray, 5s. net), and of a Practical Pocket Dictionary of the Russian and English and English and Russian Languages, by J. H. Wisdom and M. Murray (A. Melrose, ad.). And for exercises in translation they may find useful Humorous Stories, by A. P. Chokhoff, edited by D. Bondar (Effingham Wilson, 2s. net). This is a small selection of stories each followed by a vocabulary.
