The Laws relating to Quarantine of Her Majesty's Dominions Abroad and at Home, and of the Principal Foreign States. By Sir SHERSTON Baker, Bart., Barrister-at-Law. C. Kegan Paul and Co. 1879.

Fortunately for the well-being of Western Europe, the dangers apprehended from the plague which broke out at Astrakhan in the early part of the year, have, to all appearance, subsided. None the less, however, is Sir Sherston Baker's new contribution to legal literature one of great practical utility.

Sir Sherston has, we think, by his present publication shown good cause why efforts should be made to bring about International Conventions on the very serious questions connected with Quarantine.

IX., p. 480), shows the necessity of some controlling international authority which would be likely to put a stop to such vagaries. We are glad to find in Sir Sherston's pages a résumé of the proceedings of the International Sanitary Conference, held at Vienna in 1874; but why did he not give us also the results of the Paris Conference of last year? It was held at the Trocadéro, under the auspices of the Official
