    WE have already drawn attention to the first part of this excellent Catalogue, which thoroughly fulfils its promise of being not only an exhaustive list of the valuable objects in the Indian Museum, but a scholarly guide to them as well. The second part is occupied with Buddhist, Jain, Brahminical, and Mohammedan sculptures, and with the collections from Southern India, Persia, and other parts of the East. Appendixes have been added at the end of the book, including two by Prof. Warden and Mr. Growse. The work will be of great value to students of Indian archæology, and more especially to those who are devoting themselves to Buddhistic research. The Indian Museum is naturally a storehouse of antiquities throwing light on the past history of India and its relations with the West, and these have now been brought to the knowledge of scholars in a thoroughly satisfactory way.

    Catalogue and Handbook of the Archæological Collections in the Indian Museum.

    Part II. By John Anderson. (Calcutta.)
