Reviews 
larger. Neither is there any need to use super-calendered paper for letter- 
press (the plates all being inserted and super-calendered paper being 
objectionable for its unpleasant smoothness and sheen). Letterpress should 
be printed on paper with at least a slight " tooth." The title-page has the 
over-crowded and confused appearance usual in sale catalogues, and While 
not, in itself, a thing of beauty, has the flavour of many and far-reaching 
associations ; and that perhaps makes it peculiarly fitting for a Browning 
catalogue. 
THE CONSTRUCTIVE QUARTERLY : A IOURNAL OF THE 
FAITH, WORK, AND THOUGHTS OF CHRISTENDOM. Henry 
Frowde, Oxford University Press. 
Three shillings net will buy a copy of this new journal. Typographically, 
it doesn't appear ambitious: it is printed in a modern type, and the best 
that can be said for it is that it is clean ; but this virtue, such as it is, runs 
to the vice of greyness in some sheets. The headings of the articles are in a 
heavy old style type : what need there is to mix old style headings and 
modern text, we fail to see ; for there is an abundant range of types that 
harmonise with moderns. 
BACON'S LARGE SCALE ATLAS OF LONDON AND SUBURBS 
(revised edition). With an alphabetical index of over 20,000 names. New,

twenty-five shillings. Bound as an Atlas, II by I4 inches, thirty shillings. 
G.W. Bacon 8: C0., Limited, 127 Strand, London. 
This excellent work is published in two forms-bound in one volume 
or with the maps in loose unfolded sheets. An enumeration of its contents 
will give an idea of its usefulness. There are over thirty 4.-inch scale maps, 
covering a huge rectangular area from beyond the Alexandra Palace on 
the north to Purley on the south ; from Hounslow in the west to beyond 
Barking eastwards. Four-inch scale maps enable a very full number of 
street names to be given without confusion or indistinctness. There is a 
nine-inch scale map of central London, and an index map to the four-inch 
scale maps. A series of special maps show the Port of London ; the Postal 
Districts; Police Divisions; Steam Railways; Water Supply; Electric 
Supply; Gas Supply; Underground Railway System ; County Courts ; 
Omnibus and Tram Routes; Police Courts; Petty Sessions; Parlia- 
mentary Divisions ; Parliamentary and Metropolitan Boroughs ; Boroughs,
