F ONTANA ROOKS publish an anthology of the "Writings of Baron

Friedrich von Hugel compiled by Mr. Chambers who writes a short introduction. Only recently there appeared an anthology of his spiritual counsels — evidence of the growing interest in the baron's work. It is significant that in each case the editor is not a Catholic.

The present anthology falls into three sections—personal, philosophical and religious— and gives only quite short extracts. The introduction gives an admirable character sketch of the baron, but is less happy in the analysis of his thought and gives a slight impression that his membership or the Catholic Church was tnnier6 Itti.

And one need not be a devotee of Chesterton's to regret some passing rather

natured shafts directed against him. They are too incidental to be justified.
