BOOK NOTICE.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Familiar Quotations. Seventh Edition. By JOHN BARTLETT. Little, Brown, & Co. For sale at University Bookstore.

THIS book has been so popular in the past that comment on its general usefulness would be superfluous. It is only necessary to say that its usefulness is much increased in this new edition. The book now seems to be so complete as to meet every requirement in its way. Many a dispute has been settled and many an author studied heretofore, with its aid. The present edition will therefore meet with a welcome reception, having been much enlarged by additions from many authors before unrepresented as well as from those well known in connection with former editions. As many as three hundred lines have been added to the quotations from Shakespeare alone. On the other hand, no maxims of even the best writers have been added which seemed to the author to be unfamiliar to the general class of readers, although they might be of undoubted excellence. The index also, without which such a book would be like a library without a catalogue, has been enlarged and revised. Like the Encyclopaedia Britannica, as soon as a new edition of this book is published, the old edition must be replaced, if one wishes to keep up with the times.
