REV. ROBERT PHILIP'S EXPERIMENTAL GUIDES,
HUGH MILLER'S WORKS.
NEW CHEAP RE-ISSUE.
IN announcing a NEW CHEAP EDITION of the WORKS OF HUGH MILLER,
the Publisher does not consider it necessary to add anything by way of commendation. The fame of Hugh Miller is securely established throughout the world, and his works, by universal consent, take rank among the highest in English Literature.
To the higher and more cultivated classes of society, he appeals by the purity and elegance of his style, as well as by his remarkable powers of description, and his profound knowledge of the marvels of nature. To the humbler classes and the working man, the story of his life—himself originally a working man in the strictest sense of the word, pushing his way upward to the distinguished position which he attained-must possess a peculiar charm, and to them his writings cannot fail to prove of special value.
At the present time, the works of Hugh Miller, one of the most gifted of our self-taught and self-made men, are peculiarly suited to exercise a most powerful influence in promoting the great cause of the progress of Education; and this new Edition, while elegant enough to command a place in the libraries of the rich, is cheap enough to be within the reach of the student and the working man. Although many of his books have already attained an immense sale notwithstanding their high price, the Publisher feels assured that they only require to be offered to the general public at a moderate rate to ensure for them a very widely increased circulation.
OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.
'This attempt to bring the works of so distinguished an author within the reach of all classes cannot fail to be universally appreciated.'-Morning Star.
'Hugh Miller's writings have long passed the period of criticism, and taken rank among standard works. From the times of the British Essayists and Oliver Goldsmith, no literary man has shown a greater mastery of the English language than the author of The Old Red Sandstone. The size of the page and the letterpress are suitable for the library, while the price is a third less than the original edition.'-Daily Review.
'The moderate price at which the series is now offered, however, will enable thousands of readers to acquire for themselves those volumes which they have hitherto only found accessible by means of the circulating library. From the pure, manly, and instructive character of his writings-whether social, moral, or scientific-and from the fascinating attractions of his style, we do not know any works better deserving of a vast circulation than those of Hugh Miller. The edition is clearly printed, and altogether well got up.'-Glasgow Herald.
'This cheap re-issue by Mr. Nimmo will enable tens of thousands who have yet only heard of Hugh Miller soon to learn to appreciate and admire him.'—Bell's Messenger.
'This cheap edition of Hugh Miller's works deserves, and will doubtless secure, a very extended public support, No one knew better than Hugh Miller how to combine amusement with instruction; and all his works exhibit this most important combination.'-Public Opinion.
"The works of Hugh Miller cannot be too widely known or studied; and the publisher deserves our thanks for his cheap re-issue of them.'-The Standard.
'A new cheap issue of Hugh Miller's admirable works will be hailed with pleasure by all who desire to possess a really valuable collection of books.'-The Observer.
