War Pictures front Clarendon. Edited and arranged by R. J.

Mackenzie, M.A. (Clarendon Press. 2e. 6d. net.)—Mr. Mackenzie has done well to select these extracte, which make a connected series of incidents of the Civil War. Clarendon as a whole does not come into the hands of the general reader ; Mr. Mackenzie has contrived his selection so that those who wish to get the "History of the Rebellion" at first hand can read in the same volume of Chalgrove Field and the battle of Worcester, and gain some con- ception of the historian's masterly style and breadth of concep- tion.
