(1) THE author of this interesting volume of illustrations was recently requested by the Ministry of Munitions to record his impressions pictorially and in his own inimitable way of the wonder of the work now going on in the mills iand factories of Britain and of France in order to enable us to understand better the efforts being made to win the war. These drawings are to be exhibited in all our great, cities, and, judging from the quality of the illustrations in the book before us, such an exhibition will attract considerable public attention.
