The Power of the Dog (1). By ROWLAND GREY, Author of "In Sunny Switzerland," " By Virtue of His Office," "Chris," etc.


Lindenblumen," SECOND EDItion.

"Rowland Grey, the Author of the Power of the Dog,' has received a very generous welcome from the critics. Her last novel has scored one of the palpable hits of the season."-Daily Mail.

"In her treatment of character the author is essentially right, she never makes a false touch, she always does and s ys the inevitable thing. We congratulate Miss Grey on her story, and we hope she will not be offended when we say that we congratulate her even more upon the title. It is strikingly original, and admirably calculated to lure the reviewer into reading the book out of its turn."-Daily Chronicle.

"Well and soberly written; we have read this interesting story throughout with pleasure. The style throughout is excellent, and the setting of the story exceedingly skilful and refined.”—Public Opinion.

"Admirably written. 'The Power of the Dog' must be pronounced a book of charm and of interest."-Speaker.

Beauties of the Last Century," etc., with finely engraved portrait of the

"Maurus Jókai is an attractive writer. 'Black Diamonds' is an interesting story with a charming heroine, and a hero, Ivan Behrend, worthy of her. There are graphic descriptions of aristocratic and commercial life in Hungary. It is maintained throughout at a high level of merit."--Times.

NEW 6/ NOVELS-continued.

"This is the cleverest of the great Hungarian novelist's works that have as yet been translated into English. It abounds in powerful and graphic description."-New Age.

"Maurus Jókai rightly deserves to be ranked among the foremost living authors. Jókai, prolific writer as he is, has pe ned fewer finer pages than those in which he sketches the character of Evila and Ivan, and Iso of the Abbé Samuel; while for lovers of thrilling excitement there are not wanting a score of scenes such as Jókai revels in describing."- Life.

"The book is a melodrama, but it is a melodrama of genius, abounding in colour, in movement, possessing scenes where the sentiment of terror and grandeur is conveyed to the imagination, and remains in the memory."-Daily News.

"It is in a remarkable degree picturesque, and has descriptions of certain phases of Hungarian life not to be met wi h el ewhere. The translator appears to have done justice to a work dramatic in inspiration to the close."-Morning Post.

"Black Diamonds' is considered by many to be the Hungarian novelist's best work."—Publishers' Circular.

"Few living novelists rival Jókai in popularity. In some countries his reputation is almost as wide-sprea as in his native Hungary, whilst his works are now known in every quarter of the globe. 'Black Diamones' is one of Jókai's most popular romances, and in many respects, deserves its popularity."-Athenæum.

Housebreaker," 'Pegg's Perversity," "Gold for Dross," "A Line of Her

"The characters are all sketched with a free hand. the book altogether well written, and of a pleasantly readable and interesting nature."-Birmingham Daily Gazette.


'Judy' has a guilelessness that attracts us, and she has to contend against odds that we feel are too heavy for her. It is a very racy story of military life."--Literary World. "We think this is Mrs. Conney's best book."-Glasgow Record.

Jean's Vagaries," "The Bride's Pass," Lady Bell," "What She came

"A pleasant story of fashionable life in Edinburgh at the end of the last century. The glimpses of Edinburgh society-while the Northern Athens was still the seat of fashion--of wild Kitty Queensberry, of Mrs. Cockburn, the Madame de Sévigné, of Canongate, and of Mrs. Jacky Murray, sister of the great Lord Mansfield, who ruled the routs at the old Assembly Rooms with a despotic sway, are lifelike and clever. Lady Jean's Son' is from first to last a delightful story.”—Pall Mall Gazette.

ADAMS, Author of "Bonnie Kate," "Louis Draycott," "The Peyton

Tragedy and comedy are effectively blended in a romance written throughout with grace and vivacity."-Daily News.

"Mrs. Adams has given us in this book a thoroughly healthy, and at the same time a thoroughly interesting story It is admirably told, and it is of distinct literary merit."-New Age.

"Mrs. Leith Adams writes with so womanly and sympathetic a pen that it is always a pleasure to read her stories. With considerable ingenuity and force Mrs Leith Adams draws many a striking picture of Irish life. A novel which will fully maintain the excellent reputation of its clever author."Court Journal.

of "The House on the Marsh,"
"A Perfect Fool," etc.


"This is not a book upon which to while away a stray half-hour, the reader should be warned in time, the book will caprivate him, he must read on and wonder what next, and what next; the test of it is that all the way through while conjecture is busy, the interest is exaited and sustained. Te plot is original, the story well designed and artistically constructed. It is a strong book."-Western Daily Mercury.
