THE LAMPOON'S BOOK OF SKETCHES.
The present board of editors of the Lampoon have gathered together in a volume of sketches a collection of memorials of the wit and wisdom of the editors of the first series of Harvard's great illustrated paper. The selections made afford to the student of today an admirable idea of the spirit of college humor of a few years ago, and are in effect a resume of the inner history of student life at Harvard for many years. That is the excellence of Lampy's work and the secret of his popularity. He lives among us all and knows and mercilessly satirizes all our local interests and our petty foibles. He is a continual force for sincerity and frankness, and, unlike other reformers and prophets, is not without honor therefor in his own country. The present collection cannot but be highly successful and popular. There is too much in it that appeals directly to the student of today.
