Among the new editions which have insinuated themselves into our

pile of new books since our last clearance, we may mention the sixth edition of The History of the Microscope, by Jabez Hogg (Routledge), a sixpenny issue of Sterne's Sentimental Journey (Routledge); a second edition of The Cloud and the Beam, a Christmas Story, by Alfred Gardner (Bomrose); and the eighth edition of Cavendish on Whist (De is Rue).
