    THOUGH this is the first volume of Palgrave's standard work, it is the second of the new edition to appear, and students of economics will have reason to be grateful to the publishers for furnishing them with so excellent a reprint of an extremely useful book. The plan of vol. 1 is precisely the same as that of vol. 2, which was reviewed in NATURE of February 16, 1924, p. 233. Only a few changes of any moment have been made in the new edition. The editor has added in an appendix a good deal of new matter. In the present volume the new matter takes up ninety pages, and dealing as it does with such subjects as banking, censuses, the conversion of the national debt, recent budgets, canals, libraries on economics, and the development of economic teaching in recent years in Great Britain, it serves a very useful purpose in bringing up to date some of the more important topics in the body of the book.
