The Remick Memento. With an Introduction by Robert Robinson. (Field

and Tuer.)—This volume is constructed on the same plan as other " Mementoes " which have been noticed in these columns. Mr. Robinson's " Introduction " is too brief; but he has, it seems, a work on Bewick in hand. The wood-blocks were sold in a lot to Messrs. Robert Ward and Sons, of Newcastle, for 22,350. Then we have the catalogue of the "supplementary sale," and that of tlie sale of miscellaneous effects, the price fetched and the name of the pur- chaser being given. The largest sum recorded in the sale was given for lot 183, " Bewick (T.) History of British Birds,' interleaved, 2 vols. 8vo, boards, uncut." With this was bound up an explanation written by Bewick in pencil, and traced over in ink by his eldest daughter, of a large number of the tail-pieces. This fetched £105.
