NEW BOOKS. "EDWARD EDWARDS" (Messrs. Scott, Greenwood and Co., Ludgate Hill, E.C. 2s. 6d. net.).—This is the story of the life and sad death of Edward Edwards, whose great work as a pioneer of that movement which resulted in the establishment of the municipal library system throughout the country, has not been yet appraised at its true value. Time, which so often sets wrongs of this kind right, will no doubt make amends, and to such an effect this book may be one of the principal contributing causes. It treats exhaustively not Ed,wards' Life- about which there is no particular glamour, but of that life's work. THE UNKNOWN GOD" (Messrs. Warne, Bedford- street, Strand, Is. 6d. net).—Twenty years a°-o Sir Henry Thompson, Bart, one of London's and therefore Britain's foremost scientists, as well as a literary man of ability, began the collection of notes to aid him in his search for "The Unknown God." The result of his study is the book under notice. In the first part the author devotes himself to demon- strating that man, throughout his long course of development, has acquired his knowledge of the conditions and influences with which he is sur- rounded solely by his own unaided efforts and that the idea of divine revelation has nothing to sub- stantiate it. This done, Sir Henry Thompson pro- ceeds to inquire into the tendencies, disposition and purpose of that which Herbert Spencer terms the "Infinite and Eternal Energy from which all things proceed." He arrives at the conclusion that the Infinite energy is beneficent, and that it will not for ever remain wholly unknown or unknow- able. Sir Henry finds peace in this, his religion, but it will not appeal to the myriad people who, trusting to revelation, find their inspiration and their enthusiasm for goodness in their belief in and love for a God who first loved them.
