Book notices. Semi-Centennial catalogue, with brief Biographical sketches of the students of the University of Virginia. We are indebted to the publisher, Captain Joseph Van Holt Nash, late of Petersburg, Virginia, now of Atlanta, Georgia, for a copy of this valuable work. It was compiled by Professor Schele De Vere, with whom it was a labor of love to give to the work his untiring energy, tine literary taste and enthusiastic devotion to everything pertaining to our grand old University. He gracefully acknowledges his indebtedness to Captain Nash for valuable services in completing the catalogue. Professor Schele gives a vivid and deeply interesting sketch of the origin and early history of the University, and especially of Mr. Jefferson's connection with it. Then follows a list of the Rectors, members of the Board of Visitors, officers of the Board and of the Faculty, and names of the Professors and Assistant Professors from the foundation of the University down to 1878.
