Two volumes may be mentioned together, as written by experts,

and rather, therefore, to be commended to the notice of students than to be criticised. These are The Shu-King ; or, The Chinese Historical Classic, Translated from the Original Text by Walter Gorn Old (Theosophical Publishing Society) ; and The Teachings of Zoroaster, and Philosophy of the Parsi Religion, by S. A. Kapadia (John Murray, 2s. net).
