Miss Mary E. Lazenby of 603 W. Sharpe St., Statesville, North
Carolina, has sent the Association a mimeographed copy of Notes
on Lazenby Family. There are many members of this family in
Texas who might have some interest in this genealogical study.

The third edition of the late Professor Botsford's Hellenic
History (Macmillan, 1948, maps and illustrations), in a new re-
vision by Professor C. A. Robinson, Jr., presents some amplifica-
tions of those attractive features which caused the revised edition
to be generally recognized as the best modern textbook on Greek
history. The comprehensive and skillfully written textual ma-
terial has not been greatly altered, although some corrections
and enlargements have been made. The increased pagination is
chiefly a result of the inclusion of copious excerpts from the great
Greek historians-a pleasant way of allowing the Greeks to speak
for themselves. The already excellent collection of illustrations
(the more remarkable in this era of pictureless textbooks) has
been supplemented with thirty-five new plates; and the twenty-
five added maps and plans give a desirable attention to the geo-
graphical factor.
