Book Reviews and Notices
certain, is probably defensible; but, whenever it is possible, copies
should be distinguished from manuscript originals. For example,
it should be stated that a note containing the word "improperly,"
to which the author attaches a good deal of importance, is a copy.
It seems less justifiable to cite articles from which considerable
assistance was drawn without giving the names of the writers.
And unexplained references to "a well known historian," "the
author of this passage," etc., are at the present day inexcusable.
However, these are faults of taste. The book as a whole stands
for itself, and on most points it probably says the final word. It
is fittingly dedicated to the memory of Professor Garrison.
