Scottish Pewter - Ware and Pewterers, by L. Ingleby Wood (G. A.

Morton, Edinburgh, 15s. net), is a handsome and amply illustrated volume to which justice could be done only by the knowledge of an expert. After an introductory chapter, Mr. Wood proceeds to treat generally of the " Hammermen Incor- porations," and follows this up with special notices of the incor- porations of Edinburgh, of the Canongate, Perth, Dundee, Aber- deen, St. Andrews, Glasgow, and Stirling. These chapters are followed by an account of Scottish church vessels before and after the Reformation, and this again by some miscellaneous notices of tavern measures, tokens, badges, marks, &c.
