PRESS OPINIONS. 'Commander Robinson, whose able work, "The British Flect," was reviewed in these columns in November, 1894, has now undertaken the editing of a series or handbooks, cach of which will deal with one particular subject connected with that great creation, the Royal Navy. Our national literature has certainly lacked much in this respect. Such hooks as have heretofore been produced have almost invariably been of a character tou scientific and echnical to be of much use to the general public. The series now being issued is intended la obviate this defect, and when completed will form a description, both bistorical and actual, of the Royal Navy, which will not only be of use to the pressional student, but also be of interest to all who are concerned in the maintenance and efficiency of the Navy.'-Broad Arrow.

'The series of paval handbooks edited by Commander Rubinson has made a mose hopeful beginning, and may be counted upon to supply the growing popular demand for infornatior n regard to the Navy, on which the national existence depends.'-- Times.

Messrs. Bell's series of "Royal Navy Handbooks" promises to be a very successfu etilerprise. They are practical and definitely informative, and, though meant for the use o persons closely acquainted with their subjects, they are not so discouragingly technical as le be useless to the lay seeker after knowledge,'-Bookman.

'The volumes are handy in size, moderate in price, well illustrated, and written in a scholarly spirit, The history of cathedral and city is intelligently set forth and accompanied by a descriptive survey of the building in all its detail. The illustrations are copious and well selected, and the series bids fair to become an indispensable companion to the cathedral tourist in England. -Times.

'We have so frequently in these columns urged the want of cheap, well-illustrated and well-written

band books to our cathedrals, to take the place of the out-of-date publications of local booksellers, that we are glad to hear that they have been taken in hand by Messrs. George Bell & Sons.'-St. James's Gasette.
