Tennyson.' Of the contents of the volume, we need only say that it comprises most of the favorite pieces to which every reader first turns in any selection from Tennyson; and the paper, press work, and binding are unexceptionable. But the chief attraction is in the engravings, thirty-two in number, which are not only beautiful as pictures, but are real illustrations of the author's meaning. Many, perhaps most, of them, we are glad to say, are by American artists and engravers; while those to which English names are attached have been selected with excellent judgment. Where all the illustrations are so meritorious, it might be difficult to select any for special praise; but we have been particularly struck by those from the pencil of Hennessy, and by a little sea-view by Kensett. In no respect is this book inferior to the best illustrated editions of the poets which have appeared in former years; and the illustrations, we think, are better than we have seen in any similar volume.

HISTORY AND POLITICS.
Life of Michael Angelo, by Hermann Grimm. Translated by Fanny Elizabeth Bunnètt. Boston: Little, Brown, & Co. 2 vols. 8vo. pp. 558, 519. (A brilliant and enthusiastic sketch of the period and the group of celebrated men famous as the age of Michael Angelo. It is somewhat overcrowded with incident, though generally picturesque and clear; and the translation, while mostly easy and idiomatic, sometimes leaves the author's sense obscure, betraying here and there an ignorance of detail in the translator, which careful editing should remove. It is one of the most beautiful works of the American press, and deserves a more full review, which we hope to give in January.)
* Gems from Tennyson. With Illustrations by W. J. Hennessy, J. F. Kensett, S. Eyhinge, jr., F. O. C. Darley, &c., &c. Boston: Ticknor & Fields. 1865. 4to.
Thoughts on the Future Civil Policy of America. By John William Draper. New York: Harper & Brothers. 8vo. pp. 325. (We are disappointed of the review we hoped to receive of this very valuable and striking book. As a picturesque exhibition of the physical condition of American life, the facts of climate, and of physical as connected with political geography, together with the parallels furnished by other times and lands, it stands alone. In some of its most brilliant passages, such as that on what we owe to Asia (p. 72), and on the career of the Saracens in Europe (pp. 179-198), it forms both a parallel and a sequel to Professor Draper's History of the Intellectual Development of Europe. With its many merits, we think, however, that its value as a discussion of political philosophy is injured by the form and style of Lectures which it adopts.)
