New Emnotre. — The Earthly Paradise. By William Morris. 4 vols. (Longmans

and Co. 3s. 6d. per vol.)—Mr. T. W. Mackail has prefixed a short introduction, biographical and critical. The book belongs to the "Silver Library," and is very well printed. If one could always have such type to read !—In the series of "The King's Novels" (Alexander Moring, Is. 6d. net) The Hoissr hold of Sir Thomas More, by Anne Manning, with Introduction by Richard Garnett. Dr. Garnett's criticisms on the book are interesting. It is certainly a serious mistake for the author to have suggested that William Roper was ever inclined to the new opinions. For the most part, however, when the book misrepre- sents history it does so because the supposed narrator would have misrepresented it.—In the "King's Classics" (same publisher, is. 6d. net), we have Memoirs of Robert Carey, Earl of Monmouth, Edited by G. H. Powell.—In the "Little Library of French Classics" (A. Treherne and Co., 8d. per vol.), Lettres Choisies de Madame de Sevigne, 2 vols.
