GENERAL WORKS Balfour, Henry. Evolution of decorative art. 120. N. Y. 1893. Macmillan $1.25.

е An interesting and suggestive account of very primitive forms of ornament, both prehistoric and among savages of our owu time. Careful reading of this book throws a good deal of light on many problems of fine art.-Sturgis,

p. 48 Benson, William A. S. Elements of handicraft and design. illus. 12° N. Y. 1893, Macmillan $1.60.

е Intended for school workshops, but its directions for simple carpenter work and the making of book-shelves and tables are excellent and are illustrated with 94 drawings. The souvdest principles of design are explained in simple language and well enforced. This part of the book is important, because there is a strong teudency in our times toward mere taking of desigus from old works. This shows how designs are made originally. The final chapter gives good general ideas as to coloring, and a loug bibliography is added. -

The works of this author are in a sense perfunctory ; one does not go to him for stimulating criticism or bold and incisive views. They are generally trustworthy, written by a bard-working man to whom all modern French culture and much of foreign thought were accessible. His Grammaire des arts du dessin and tbis work form one analytic history of art which is well

worth study.-Sturgis, p.3 Chevreul, Michel Eugene. Principles of harmony and contrast of
