2 vols. pp. 880. price 11. Longman and Co. Cadell and Davies. · ISIO. HUET is the well-known name of an enormouis magazine 11, of learning, that existed in: France during the greater part of the seventeenth, and the early part of the eighteenth centuries; a magazine to, which it should appear, from these memoirs, that the greatest scholars of Europe were proud to be able to make any addition; and to which none of them, great or small, thought it humiliating to have recourse for supplies. How it was possible for such a mass of literature to be stored within the capacity of one human being, by what method of study and distribution of time. so much could be taken in, and by whal contrivance for preventing or stopping the leaks of memory and the thefts of age it could be retained there, is not satisfactorily explained in these memoirs. It would have been very gratifying to be admitted completely into the sanctuary of bis library; to be told whether he made it a retreat inviolable during particular portions of time to all intrusion and interruption, whether he adopted any peculiar methods of study; whether it was necessary for him to read books'several times in order to have their contents at com. mand ;'whether he tried the various artificial aids to memory, and which of them he preferred, or whether he invented any new one; what sort of common-place books, or indexes, he found most, serviceable ; what were his principal difficulties in composition, and how they were overcome to be inforin. ed, in short, of whatever was auxiliary to extraordinary apti. tude and industry, in making and employing such prodigious acquisitions. The more fact, however, that these acquisitions were made and put to use, in an assigned order of time, VOL, YI.
