Proceedings of the Classical Association, 1905. (John Murray. 2s. 6d.

net.)—The progress of this Association seems satisfactory. It now numbers more than a thousand members, and its annual meeting (the second), held in London in January last, was distinctly successful. Several excellent papers were read, one of a specially brilliant kind by Mr. T. E. Page. Mr. Page proposes, so to speak, to lighten the classical ship. How can we bring about the same result as was accomplished when all the day was given to classics, now when they have to be content with half, or less ? "Attention is to be concentrated," thinks Mr. Page, "on what is essential."
