by Reuben Gold Thwaites, Secretary of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, is a pleasant account of a trip made by the author and his wife in the south of England — from Canterbury to Dartmoor Forest, and back to London by way of Bath, Oxford and the Thames Valley. The book is refreshingly free from mere guide-book details and descriptions, while it is replete with information about rural and village life and character. The reports of " interviews " with the country folk are particularly interesting and amusing. The six full-page illustrations, from photographs taken at Canterbury, Battle Abbey, Shanklin, Wells and Bath, are also out of the common course, and are beautifully executed ($1.5o. A. C.
