This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1900 edition. Excerpt: the painter in his plein-air studies, more especially of the figure, are wellnigh insurmountable. To aid in a measure the solution of some of the many difficult problems, the Lensart Series of photographs has been produced. How admirable, and how useful to the painter the series should become, can only be realised by a care ful study of the many excel lent items. Those entitled A Sea Frolic, Sea Wrack, and A Dryad, in addition to those we are privileged to reproduce, are not only masterpieces of the art of figure posing and drapery arrangement, but are full of useful suggestion in the matter of direct and secondary lighting. We sincerely trust that those responsible for the photographs which have appeared will be encouraged to continue their work, for the more we see of it the more we realise what legitimate value to the painter the camera may become. The Lensart photographs, we understand, may be obtained from Messrs. E. Day & Sons, of Bournemouth. We have received from Mr. W. H. Broome (London) some sheets of new music, the cover designs of which call for a word of praise. We are glad to see evidences of improvement in this direction, but there is still room for further advancement. The editors of Who's Who, igoo, and the Englishwoman's Year-Book, ipoo, published by Messrs. A. & C. Black, London, are to be congratulated upon the increasing importance and value of their publications. The extent of the information contained in them is remarkable, and renders them indispensable adjuncts to the library table.
