It was wnilen by a lady, who, from her writings, is considered one of the most talented women that Japan has ever produced.

Author of “Rocks Ahead,” “The Creed of Christendom.” "Mr. Greg's popularity as a writer was due chiefly, no doubt, to that singular union of unsparing trenchancy of logic with delicacy and almost tenderness, in the delineation of religious feeling, which presents one of the rarest combinations in our modern literature." - The Spectator.

By A. FEATHERMAN. This work forms the Fifth Volume of the “Social History of the Races of Mankind," of which a detailed Notice will be found on page 30 of the second volume of the Record. Each volume will be entirely independent of all the others, and perfect and complete in itself. The Aramaeans has been selected as the first volume for publication ; for, as the Semitic nations and tribes, whose social history it describes, have already attained a high degree of civilization, the work will present a high interest, not only to scientific men, but to the general reader ; while it furnishes valuable information as regards the Semitic question which has recently been raised in Hungary and Germany. It cannot fail to be of great value to the Anthropologist, the Ethnologist, the Geographer, the Social Philosopher, at the same time presenting an infinite number of curious facts to the general reader.
ABSTRACT OF FOUR LECTURES ON
DELIVERED AT UNIVERSITY COLLEGE, LONDON.
By SAMUEL BEAL, Professor of Chinese, University College, London. The author thought it would be interesting to recount the names and the labours of those Indian, or at any rate Foreign, Buddhist Priests who, during 600 years and more after the beginning of the Christian Era, continued to arrive in China with books and manuscripts, which they subsequently translated, or assisted to translate, into the language of that country. It is surely an interesting study to inquire how these foreign priests succeeded in converting China to Buddhism. A new literature was produced--a literature specially Indian, and therefore Aryan ; the Chinese were infused with new thoughts and ideas about religion ; a rude blow was dealt to their national exclusiveness, another tun was given to their studies, and fresh combinations of men and women formed into religious societies; the country was covered with temples and pagodas; and thousands, stirred by this new impulse, sought to find out in the solitude of the hermit's cell the secret of the unrest that seized them.

PRÆNOMINA; OR, THE ETYMOLOGY OF THE PRINCIPAL CHRISTIAN NAMES OF GREAT BRITAIN & IRELAND.
By R. STEPHEN CHARNOCK, Ph.D., F.S.A. The object of the present work is to give the Etymology of the Principal Christian Names, either in every-day use, or lingering in the literature of Great Britain and Ireland. The names derived probably amount to fifteen hundred. Of these the major parts are, without doubt, from the Gothic-Teutonic languages, which include the Anglo-Saxon, Dutch, Gothic; and the High and Low German, Ancient and Modern. The next in number are of Oriental ongin, viz. from the Hebrew, Chaldee, Syriac, Arabic, and Persian. Other names are derived from the Greek, Latin, Italian, Anglo-Norman, and Slavonic; and many more from the Celtic languages--that is to say, from the Gothic, Irish, Welsh, and Cornish.

By the Rev. E. SELL, Fellow of the University of Madras. " The faith described by Mr. Sell is that form most prevalent in India, but it is practically the same in Egypt and Turkey. The Faith of Islam is modern Mohammadanism-about as like the faith of Mohammad himself as the religion de Knox or Laud, of the Church Association or the Church Union, are like the Christianity of the Gospels; but, nevertheles, modern Mohammadanism is what we need most to understand thoroughly at present."- Academy.
“ His book is no compilation from other European authors. He draws almost entirely from Mahommedan authorities, and gives us the result of his own observations as to the action upon men and society of the great religion which he has si himself to study. Moreover, he has executed his task in a manner which merits upon the whole very great praise. . . . . His book is the work of an honest witness, and much may be learned from it.”- St. James's Gazette.

By R. N. CUST. "If we were asked what book we should recommend to be put into the hands of a young Indian civilian, we should bare no hesitation in answering, “This.' The wonders of the country and the pathos of the Anglo-Indian exile are depicted in a series of short essays which he who runs may read."-Academy.
“The chapters on Sir John Lawrence, Caste, and Indian women are sensible, unaffected, and instructive. Perhaps the best is that on the Great Indian Nation, written in 1881."-Liverpool Albion.
"Mr. Cust has a warm attachment to the people, and a high opinion of their good qualities, and he thinks that no man can properly discharge his great responsibilities unless he has a real sympathy for the subject race, and knows how to gain their confidence."-Scotsman.
"Mr. Cust, who is one of the few men who know Indian life so familiarly that he may be trusted to discriminate between the accidents and the essentials, has hit upon a capital idea on which effectively to string his experiences, and at the same time limit himself judiciously. ..... Nothing could be happier in idea ; scarcely could the execution have been more effective." — Scotsman.

By KARL HILLEBRAN D.
Translated from the Third German Edition. "Herr Hillebrand's views are clear, incisive, and dogmatic. They are worthy of attention as being the opinions of one who knows France well, and who, for a German, has remarkable sympathy with the French. His book is full of excellent emarks on political science, and shows a broad knowledge of European political life.'-Academy.
"On the whole, this book presents one of the most thoughtful and fair-minded studies of French national life, character, nd predominating conditions of the present day that has yet been written."-Scotsman.
"The work merits close attention and careful reading; it is full of interest, and the translation, which is from the third terman edition, has been accomplished with great care and excellent taste."-Sunday Times.
"Its judgments are so nicely balanced that, while one wonders at such miraculous impartiality of criticism, the feeling is of devoid of regret that a little more pungency was not infused into the text. Of course this ought not to be the case ; inglish readers should be delighted to find a German who can write about France without the slightest trace of the conqueror's one." – Globe.

By E. H. PALMER, M.A.;
Service Commission. The object of this Series is to provide the learner with a concise but practical introduction to the various languages, nd at the same time to furnish students of comparative philology with a clear and comprehensive view of their structure. The attempt to adapt the somewhat cumbrous grammatical system of the Greek and Latin to every other tongue das introduced a great deal of unnecessary difficulty into the study of languages. Instead of analyzing existing locutions and endeavouring to discover the principles which regulate them, writers of grammars have for the most part constructed a frame work of rules on the old lines, and tried to make the language of which they were treating fit into it. Where this proves impossible the difficulty is met by lists of exceptions and irregular forms, thus burdening the pupil's mind with a mass of details of which he can make no practical use.
In these grammars the subject is viewed from a different standpoint : the structure of each language is carefully examined, and the principles which underlie it are carefully explained ; while apparent discrepancies and so-called Irregularities are shown to be only natural euphonic and other changes. All technical terms are excluded unless their meaning and application is self-evident; no arbitrary rules are admitted ; the old classification into declensions, conjugations, etc., and even the usual paradigms and tables, are omitted. Thus reduced to the simplest principles, the Accidence and Syntax can be thoroughly comprehended by the student on one perusal, and a few hours' diligent study will enable him to analyze any sentence in the language.
The first volume comprises Hindūstānī, Persian, and Arabic, the latter, though not belonging to the same family as the other two, being included because of the numerous words and locutions which these borrow from it. This will e followed by Grammars of the Teutonic, Romanic, Keltic and Slavonic languages and dialects,--likewise of Grammars
the most important vernaculars of Modern India. The Keltic section will contain Welsh, Gaelic, Irish, and Breton ; me Slavonic section will comprise Russian, Polish, Bohemian, Bulgarian ; and the Scandinavian section Icelandic,
amsh, Swedish, and Norwegian. Grammars of the following languages are in preparation : Albanian, Anglo-Saxon, Assyrian, Bengali, Burmese, Chinese, Cinghalese, Danish, Finnic, Greek (Modern), Hebrew, Icelandic, Japanese, Magyar, Malay, Pali, Sanskrit, Serbian, Siamese, Tibetan, Turkish. The Editor and Publishers, by the selection of
e most competent scholars for the work, and by the greatest care in the production, hope to render this series of the utmost practical utility both to linguistic students and comparative philologists.

Late Moravian Missionary at Kyèlang, British Lahoul. Prepared and Published at the Charge of the Secretary of State for India in Council. “Mr. H. A. Jäschke, of Herrnhuth, has finished the Tibetan-English Dictionary on which he has been engaged, as behalf of the India Office, for the past eight years. He was one of the party who founded the Moravian mission at Kyelang, in the Northern extremity of British Lahaul, in 1853. This mission still exists; and an interesting account on may be found in the late Andrew Wilson's ‘Abode of Snow. Mr. Jäschke himself returned to Europe in 1868. He bus before issued several works on Tibetan, notably a grammar and a romanised dictionary, which were auto-lithographed at the mission station of Kyelang. The full title of his new work is ‘A Tibetan-English Dictionary, with special reference to the Prevailing Dialects. To which is added an English Tibetan-Vocabulary.' We hope to give shortly an adequate notice of this important contribution to Oriental philology.”—The Academy.

By FREDERIC W. MADDEN, M.R.S.L.
With 279 Woodcuts and a Plate of Alphabets. This work may be virtually considered a Second Edition of the Author's “ History of the Jewish Coinage and Money D the Old and New Testaments,” embracing, as it does, nearly all the original matter contained in that volume, as well is the additional information printed in its “Supplement." It is further enriched by the Critical Corrections gained from all papers on the subject that he has been able to obtain, so that the “History of the Coins of the Jews," from the earliest imes to the destruction of Jerusalem and the building of Ælia Capitolina by order of the Emperor Hadrian, is brought ip to the knowledge of the present day.
Since the publication of the Author's original work, the late M. de Saulcy has described and illustrated the interesting Coins of the towns of Palestine in a handsome book, entitled “Numismatique de la Terre Sainte.” It was therefore unnecessary to include all these in the present volume, but it has been thought advisable to retain the “Imperial Colonial Coins of Ælia Capitolina," originally produced in the first edition, these having a more intimate relation with the “Coins ol the Jews" than those of any of the other towns.
Great attention has been paid to the Chronology of all periods, and an Historical Commentary has, where needful, been prefixed and interwoven with the purely Numismatic portion of the work.
