King Renes Honeymoon Cabinet. By J. P. Seddon. (Botsford. 5s.)—Mr.

Seddon tells us how in 1861 he designed a cabinet to keep his architectural drawings in, and how the panels were painted by Madox Brown, Rossetti, and Burne-Jones, while William Morris invented decorative devices to bring the whole into harmony. Certainly such a collaboration makes this piece of furniture an interesting record of a remarkable period of English art. In the little book under notice there are reproductions of the panels as well as of the whole thing.
