Harvard Historical Studies.
The new volume soon to be published in the "Harvard Historical Studies" series is by Dr. G. T. Lapsley '93, instructor in history, and is entitled "The County Palatine of Durham." This volume is noteworthy as being the first in the series which deals directly with English Constitutional History, the greater part of it having been prepared in England from original manuscript.
