la ?' MB JANE'S 8UJIMARY. Mr F. T. Jane, in addition to his well earned reputation as the. inven- tion of the ' Naval War Game,' a naval correspondent, and a novelist, ia a close student of all subjects ? connected with the navies of the world, and the following criticism of . his work on the ' Fighting Ships of i 1907' in the ' Wietminster Ga- I zette' will appeal to many. I To all, indeed, who are interested in the British Navy the subject, re marks that paper, is one of perennial fascination : — If any are not interested in the Navy, its perusal should soon charm them to conversion. For, indued, it is a masterly compilation. Never have statistics so elaborated, and so numerous, been so diligently com piled nor so lucidly set out. Every fighting' ship in the world Is— as heralds would say — both blazoned and displayed to the minutest detail. It is impossible that every detail should do correct— but it ia obvious that Mr -Jane has taken every pre -caution to make them so when pos s...
