We have mentioned from time to time the excellent series

of "Handy Classical Maps " published by Mr. John Murray. Wo have now from the same publisher, Murray's Classical Atlas, Edited by G. B. Grundy, D.Litt., constructed on the same principles, special attention having been paid to the delineation of the physical contour of the country, and to clearness by a judicious treatment of the names engraved. In the Atlas there are fourteen maps ; some of the plates are divided among various subjects. No. 9, for instance, gives us, besides Egypt, Rome and Latium, and five plans of the city of Rome, in its various stages. The growth of the Roman Empire is presented in two historical maps. A new feature is a selection of battlefields in Greek and Roman history from Troy to Actium.
