Churchwardens' Accounts. By J. Charles Cox, LL.D., F.S. A. (Methuen

and Co. 7s. 6d. net.)—We are glad to notice this valuable addition to the series known as " The Antiquary's Books." It is a study of church accounts, as distinguished from parish registers, from the fourteenth century to the close of the seventeenth century. The great mass of informa- tion at Dr. Cox's disposal (he refers to over four hundred wardens' accounts in these pages) has been admirably sifted and arranged, and the result is a most interesting monograph.
