Who's Who, 1897

    Article metrics


    THIS is certainly a most useful book to have on a library table; for it is a hand-book of not only those who inherit distinction, but also of those who are officially prominent, and others whose ability has brought them before the public. Information may also be obtained regarding the Royal Family, Army, Navy, the Government, Universities, Church, &c.—in fact, all societies and institutions with which we are brought into daily contact. There is also a complete list of the Fellows of the Royal Society, and a useful table of pseudonyms. We notice that the short biographies, which form the greater part of the book, include a large number of scientific men. The book is very neatly got up, is bound in a good flexible cover, and is excellently printed.
