“A work full of curious and instructive information, which is likely to become a serviceable manual in the hands of Municipal Reformers."-Daily News.
“Mr. Vine's arrangements of tabular matter forcibly show the contrast between past and present Municipal life, and his book is a clear and valuable demonstration that, in the words of Mr. Gladstone, 'our Municipalities produce qualities which are the best safeguards of England's greatness.'”—Daily Telegraph.
“An enormous amount of industry must have been bestowed upon this compilation that will be invaluable for reference and comparison.”—Daily Chronicle.
“A perfect repertory of information on everything that is analogous to the subject Mr. Vine has set himself to consider, and an indispensable volume.”—Morning Advertiser.
" Full of important information to all interested in Municipal Government.”—Echo.
"Equally admirable as a book of reference and as an historical survey.”—Manchester Examiner.
“ We know of none so thoroughly instructive as this work.”—Stamford Mercury.
"Novel, practical and reliable. Mr. Vine's account of our English Municipalities, and his tables illustrating their growth and development, make a most interesting volume, either for casual reading or permanent reference. To the politician the work will be one of immense value."-York Herald,
