BOOKS RECEIVED. MESSRS. CASSELL'S POPULAR WAR HISTORY. Messrs. Cassell and Co., Ltd., the well- jaiown London publishers, have just issued Part I. of the popular history of the Boer War, the next instalment of which will be ready on November 5th, and which will be completed in 30 parts (price 6d. each). The tirst issue of the book, which is revised throughout, and will certainly be the most up-to-date work issued ,is satisfactory in every respect. The narrative is written with force,, accuracy and detail; the illustrations are finely drawn and excellently reproduced; and the production of the part, in printing and paper, leaves nothing to be desired. It deals with the actions at Dundee and Eland's Laagte.the eaily lighting around Mafeking. and gives a succinct summary of the political events preceding hostilities. A great mass of infor- mation has become available since the early edition, and many of the war's dark points have been cleared up. The history promises t ) take a place amongst the most popular yet written, and readers wishing to acquire a thoroughly good and well illustrated work on the war cannot do better than purchase the instalments. A magnificent portrait of Lord Kitchener is presented gratis with the work. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY LOCAL PUB- LICATION.
