A New Edition. With Illustrations by Stantield, Weir, Skelton, Walker, &c, Engraved by Whymper. Crown 8vo, 6s.

"Everybody who has foiled to read 'Tom Cringle's Los' should do so at once. The 'Quarterly Review' went so far as to say that the papers composing it, when it first appeared in ' Blackwood.' were the most brilliant series of the time, and that time one unrivalled for the number of famous magazinists existing in it. Coleridge says, in his 'Table Talk,' that the ' Log' is most excellent; and these verdicts have been ratified by generations of men and boys, and by the manifestation of Continental approval which is shown by repeated translations. The engravings illustrating tho present issue are excellent."-. Standard.
