Among the Mongols. By Rev. JAMES GILMOUR, M.A., London Mission, Peking.

Numerous Engravings from Photographs and Native Sketches. Crown 8vo. A graphic, sympathetic account of the tribes who inhabit the great Mongolian

tableland, by the only European who has for any length of time lived among them. Their habits, beliefs, modes of life and thought are depicted in a way that not only interests the reader, but assures him that the scenes are from life. • There is a charm in the quiet way in wbich the modest missionary tells of his life in Tartar tents, of the long rides across the grassy plain, and of the daily life of the nomads among whom he passed so many years.'-Fortnightly Řerier.

• The newness and value of the book consist solely in its Defoe quality, that when you have read it you know, and will never forget, all Mr. Gilmour knows and tells of how Mongols live.'

Australian Pictures, drawn with Pen and Pencil. By Howard WiLLOUGHBY,

• The Melbourne Argus.' With Map and 107 Illustrations from Photo
graphs and Sketches, engraved by E. WHYMPER and others. Luuta

gilt edges; 258. morocco
Mr. Willoughby has succeeded admirably in the task. He has had apple opportunities
observing, and writes like one full of his subject. Where his own direct personaliko wledgo failed,
he has been able to call in the aid of willing literary friends. The result is that these pictures of
the pen are real, vivid, and life-like. One feels that they are writtenrhy a man who helongs to
the scenes and the people. The book, therefore, will be a fitting memorial to tounsts of what
they have seen, and will at the same time be instructive to untravelled people. Ito use wil nog
be confined to England. It should be welcome to Australians of all classes, many of whom
still too ignorant of the beauties of their land.'-Australasian,
