• 1968 sees the 100th edition of Whitaker (Whitaker's Almanack 27s. 6d.). Besides the customary mass of indispensable information that has grown up over the years (Whitaker 1 was only 363 pages). There is a useful new section called "Topics of the Day" which this year includes such subjects as decimal coinage, the Channel Tunnel and North Sea gas.

• The lines that tie us to ancient Greece still run clearly enough andto anyone who wants to know what that civilisation meant Classical Greece by Kark Schefold (Methuen 63s.) will provide a beautifully illustrated guide and mentor. There are 49 colour plates, 77 other illustrations and 234 pages of text. • Tourists will be heading for Spain this summer like wasps heading for the picnics. So what could be a better appetite whetter than Castles from the Heart of Spain by Alberto A. Weissmullcr (Barrie and Rockliff 70s.). It might be thought an expensive enough cocktail, but there are more than 200 photographs, some of them superb as well as solid descriptive text.

• Lord Elton's Simon Peter (World's Work 7s, 6d.). originally published a couple of years ago, is now with us as an attractive paperback. On its first appearance it was commended by the Church Times for "its quality of seeing things in depth." an attribute which includes a studious avoidance of any interFaith controversy arising from the life of Simon called Peter.

• Go To Heaven by Fulton J. Sheen (World's Work 7s. 6d.) is a collection of essays already in hardback now in paper. It has all the penetrating simplicity that one associates with the name of Bishop Sheen.

• A second edition of Bernhard W. Anderson's The Living World of the Old Testament has been issued by Longmans, Green at 45s. First published in 1958, the book has now been extensively revised in the fight of recent research. Discussions between experts of different faiths have resulted in numerous alterations.

• The first cheap edition of E. L. Mascali's The Seclusion of Christianity, which analysed critically "Honest to God" by the Bishop of Woolwich and Paul van Buren's ."The Secular Meaning of the Gospel" is now available as a Darton, Longman and Todd Libra Book at 9s. 6d.
