The whole charm of the presentment of the volume consists in its handiness, and the tempting clearness and beauty of the type, which almost converts into a pleasure the mere act of following the printer's lines, and leaves the author's mind free to exert its unobstructed force upon the reader."--Examiner.

Lays of the Scottish Cavaliers, and other Poems.

By W. Edmondstoune Aytoun, D.C.L.

Professor of Rhetoric and Belles-Lettres in the University of Edinburgh. Twelfth Edition, price 7s. 6d.

“ Mr Aytoun's Lays are truly beautiful, and are perfect poems of their class, pregnant with fire, with patriotic ardour, with loyal zeal, with exquisite pathos, with noble passion. Who can hear the opening lines descriptive of Edinburgh after the great battle of Flodden, and not feel that the minstrel's soul has caught the genuine inspiration ?"- Morning Post.

The Ballads of Scotland.

Edited by Professor Aytoun. Second Edition. Two Volumes, price 12s.

"No country can boast of a richer collection of Ballads than Scotland, and no Editor for these Ballads could be found more accomplished than Professor Aytoun. He has sent forth two beautiful volumes which range with Percy's Reliques which for completeness and accuracy, leave little to be desired—which must henceforth be considered as the standard edition of the Scottish Ballads, and which we commend as a model to any among ourselves who may think of doing like service to the English Ballads." -The Times.

Firmilian; or, the Student of Badajoz:

A SPASMODIC TRAGEDY. Price 6s.

" Without doubt, whether we regard it as a satire or as a complete drama, Firm lian is one of the most finished poems of the day. Unity is preserved, and the intensity of the spas. modic' energy thrown into the narrative carries the reader through every page; while the graces of poetic fancy, and the touches of deep thought scattered throughout, challenge comparison with selections from most modern poems." - Liverpool Albion.

Edited by Bon Gaultier. Fifth Edition, with numerous Illustrations by Doyle, Leech, and Crowquill. Gilt Edges, price 8s. 6d.

Poems and Ballads of Goethe.
