WORKS or REFERENCE.—The New Hazen Annual for 1921, edited by

T. A. Ingram (H. Frowde, and Hodder and Stoughton, 7s. 6d. net), appears in its thirty-sixth issue and deserves a word of hearty commendation. It has been thoroughly revised and is well printed.—A List of English Clubs, 1921, by E. C. Austen-Leigh (Spottiswoode, Ballantyne, 7s. 6d.), has reached its thirty-ninth year, and gives particulars of 3,850 clubs. Recent increases of London subscriptions have been noted, but we find no reference to the flourishing clubs in Mesopotamia, at Basra and Baghdad and elsewhere, though two clubs at Mohammerah are mentioned. The Russian clubs surely ought to be omitted ; they were destroyed long since, and the members

are probably all dead or in prison. The Catholic Directory, 1921 (Burns, Oates, and Washbourne, 3s. 6d. net), is the eighty- fourth annual edition of this official Roman Catholic publication, which is admirably edited and astonishingly cheap.
