William Morris. By J. W. Mackail. Ecce
Mundus; Industrial Ideals; and TheBook Beautiful.
By T. L. Cobden-Sanderson. (7 The Terrace,
Hammersmith: Hammersmith Publishing Com-
pany.) Price 2s. 6d. each net.—Mr. Mackail's
short account of the life and aspiration of William
Morris is clear and concise, and the author does
not make the all too common mistake of over-
stating the claims of the subject upon our admira-
tion. Mr. Cobden-Sanderson's socialistic ideals
are Utopian ; but his views on the ideal book, as
far as they go, are aesthetically sound.

Anyoranses : Poesies Intimes. Per Alexandre
de Riquer. (Barcelona : A Verdaguer). This
little volume of Spanish verse is presented to the
public in exquisite manner. The paper cover in
dull green and orange is very delightful, while each
page has on it a simple but delicate floral decora-
tion. The shape of the page is tall and narrow,
the paper of excellent quality, and the letterpress
very clear. Our own poets who pride themselves
on the appearance of their books will be envious if
they meet with this original and dainty little volume.

The Book of God's Kingdom. (146, Queen
Victoria Street.) 1902.—This little book consists
of a popular illustrated report of the British and
Foreign Bible Society for the year 1901-2. Its
subject-matter is outside the scope of The Studio,
but it contains some excellent reproductions of
photographs of Eastern life and scenery, and it is
well printed and neatly bound.

We have been asked to state that the book and
the illustrations of Timothy Cole's "Old English
Masters," reviewed in the December number of
The Studio, are the copyright of the Century
Company of New York.
