THE AMERICAN ANTHROPOLOGst includes, but is not confined to, the Transactions of the Anthropological Society of Washington, and aims to be a medium of communication between students in all branches of anthropologic science. Its editors earnestly invite the coöperation, both as subscribers and contributors, of all who are interested in Anthropology. The contributors alone, not the Editors, or the Society, are responsible for the views they express.
THE AMERICAN ANTHROPOLOGIST appears the first day of each month. It is sent gratuitously to Life, Active, and Honorary Members of the Anthropological Society; to persons who are not members of the Society the subscription price is $2.00 per annum.
All communications to the journal and all correspondence should be addressed to Dr Frank BAKER, 1804 Columbia Road, Washington, D. C.

Edited by J. ROMILLY ALLEN, F. S. A. Scot. Published Quarterly. Annual Subscription, Post Free, $2.50.
THE FIRST VOLUME of the New Series of the amalgamated RELIQUARY AND ILLUSTRATED ARCHÆOLOGIST is now complete, and from its contents it will be possible for contemplating subscribers or contributors to judge of the general scope and aiins of this quarterly inagazine. The publishers and editor have clideavored to preserve the best traditions or the RELIQUARY, as founded by the late Mr. Llewellynn Jewitt, and at the same time to extend its usefulness by taking advantage to the utmost of the new photographic processes of reproduction for purposes of illustration.
The objects held in view are of a sixfold nature: (1) To preserve a permanent illustrated record of the progress of archäology at home and abroad ; (2) to popularize the study of antiquities; (3) to stimulate inquiry into the past history of human culture, on the lines indicated by the comparatively modern theory of evolution ; (4) to promote the organization of archæological research ; (5) to form a strong public opinion against the mutilation and destruction of ancient monuments; and 6) to insist on our museums being made use of for educational purposes.
We are firm believers in the value of well-chosen illustrations for the purpose of supple. menting, and explaining more fully, the descriptions given in the letterpress. By means of the new photographic processes of reproduction, it is now possible to bring the actual objects before the reader in a way which was never previously attainable, and it need hardly be said that the quality of the blocks and their printing will be kept up to the highest standard of excellence. Whenever necessary, trained draughtsmen will be specially employed to make representations of objects, which will be completely shown in all their parts by means of general views, measured drawings, elevations, sections, and plans.
The subjects which come within the scope of the RELIQUARY are as follows:
Archæology-ai Prehistoric, (b) Romano-British, (c) Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, and Scandi. navian. (d Mediæval, (e) Foreign. Ecclesiastical, Military, and Domestic Architecture of the Middle Ages.
