Although Mr. Wrarall treats more especially of the Armies of France, Austria, England, Russia, and Prussia, he has not omitted those of Sardinia, Turkey, and Anglo-India.

“We congratulate Dr. Forbes Watson on having produced so useful and so practical a work, and on having diffused knowledge upon all material points connected with the clothing of the people of India, which heretofore had been unattainable. His book is written in a clear and thoroughly intelligible style throughout; it is handsomely got up, and embellished by numerous coloured photographs, from which the various styles of costume and portion of clothing, male and female, will be more readily understood than from mere description. The colours, too, of the various fabrics are given from the articles themselves, and we would in particular invite attention to the plates at page 118, all or most being figures of respectable Mohammedans in Upper India in rich dresses, as conveying excellent impressions of colour and effect in native Indian costume.”—Times.
