Bradshaw's Railway Manual and Shareholder's Guide and Directory. (Blacklock and

Co. 12s.) —It will be sufficient to quote by way of notice of this work, now in its fifty-seventh year, the description of its contents given on the title-page. It contains "the history and financial position of every railway controlled by British capital at home and abroad, also of the principal canal and rolling stock companies, with statistics, powers, and other data ; accompanied by a directory of administrative and executive staffs, and other information of use to investors in railway companies." There are also maps of the British Isles, the Continent of Europe, India, &c. We may add that information is also given as to railways—as, e.g., of the United States—that are commonly brought before the British investor.
