"THE CATHEDRAL TOWNS OF ENGLAND, IRELAND AND SCOTLAND. By Thomas W. Silloway and Lee L. Powers. Boston: A. Williams & Co." This book is a pleasant account of a journey through England, Ireland and Scotland, which has grown out of a series of articles published in one of the Boston papers. The introductory notice sufficiently explains the plan of the book: "Instead of simply recording personal observations, the labor was extended by the incorporation of historic and biographical facts, the authors hoping that, while their work would be valuable and interesting as a compend to those familiar with the facts, it would also be entertaining and instructive to that large class, in all communities, who are without the means of obtaining such information." The book supplies the place of a guide book, at the same time avoiding its dryness of detail. The typographical work has been done by the University Press, a sufficient guarantee of its excellence.
