BOOK REVIEWS. our knowledge about MARSHALL'S career. Mr. Magruder laid it under heavy contribution in his well known life published in I885 in the Statesmen Series. In the preface he says that "he is also largely indebted to the industry and discriminating research of Mr. Henry Flanders," of whose book " he has freely availed himself for facts and incidents to lend interest to the narrative." And in the preface to the re-issue of Magruder's volume, Mr. Morse adds his meed of praise in more outspoken terms: "Indeed," he says, "there has not been, I think, any substantial addition to the material which existed at the time when the well-known Life of MARSHALL, in Flanders' Lives of the Chief Justices, was written. Of this book Colonel Magruder necessarily made free use, as must all coming writers concerning MARSHALL. Little is known now that was not known then and probably little more will ever be known." Such commendation speaks for itself and amply justifies separate publication. The frontispiece reproduces the celebrated Inman portrait and is excellently and artistically done. The volume is attractive in form and well printed, and cannot fail to please the public. It should also call attention to the venerable Mr. Flanders' Lives of the Chief Justices, a well written, interesting and accurate work, to which a third volume, carrying the "Lives" from TANEY'S appointment to that of the present incumbent would long have been, as it would be now, a welcome addition.
