By Thomas

“It is simply a series of village sketches of character, manners, and scenery, but the book is full of a quiet sustained humour, genuine pathos, simple unaffected poetry, and displays not only fine imaginative power, but a hearty sympathy with nature in all her aspects, and with the simple tastes and pleasures of rustic life. A more delightful book we cannot imagine."- Manchester Advertiser.

Tara: A Mahratta Tale. By Captain Meadows Taylor.

3 vols., Post Octavo, £1, lls. 6d. A picture of Indian life which it is impossible not to admire. We save no hesitation in saying, that a more perfect knowledge of India is to be acquired from an attentive perusal and study of this work, than could be gleaned from a whole library.”—Press.

Novels. In Volumes of a convenient and handsome form. Printed from a large and readable type. Forty-three Vols. Foolscap Octavo, 5s. each.

“It is of the handiest of sizes; the paper is good; and the type, which seems to be new, is very clear and beautiful. There are no pictures. 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."- Eraminer.

“Nothing could be better as to size, type, paper, and general getting-up."— Athenaun.

"Genis of thought set upon some of the most important subjects that can engage the atten. tion of men. Except in one or two instances, they are so short that they will not tax the application of even lazy readers, yet there is not one of them that does not contain a lesson worthy of an abiding place on the handiest shelf of memory."-Daily News.

TRAVELS

Journal of the Discovery of the Source of the Nile. By

J. H. SPEKE, Captain H.M. Indian Army. Octavo, price 21s. With a Map of Eastern Equatorial Africa by CAPTAIN SPEKE; numerous Illustrations, chiefly from Drawings by CAPTAIN GRANT; and Portraits, engraved on Steel, of CAPTAINS

SPEKE and GRANT. “The volume which Captain Speke has presented to the world possesses more than a geographical interest It is a monument of perseverance, courage, and temper displayed under difficulties which have perhaps never been equalled."Timex.

“Captain Speke has not written a noble book so much as he has done a noble deed. The volume which records his vast achievement is but the minor fact-the history of his discovery, not the discovery itself: yet even as a literary performance it is worthy of very high praise. It is wholly free from the traces of book manufacture.

It is, however, a great story that is thus plainly told ; a story of which nearly all the interest lies in the strange facts related, and, more than all, in the crowning fact that it irees us in a large degree from a geographical puzzle which had excited the curiosity of mankind-of the most illustrious emperors and cominunities --from very early times."- Athenauin.

Narrative of the Earl of Elgin's Mission to China and

Japan. By LAUNENCE OLIPHANT, Private Secretary to Lord Elgin. Illustrated with numerous Engravings in Chromo-Lithography, Maps, and Engravings on Wood, from Original Drawings and Photographs. Second Edition. In Two

Volumes Octavo, 21s. “The volumes in which Mr Oliphant has related these transactions will be read with the strongest interest now, and deserve to retain a permanent place in the literary and historical annals of our time."-Edinburgh Review.

Russian Shores of the Black Sea in the Autumn of 1852,

with a Voyage down the Volga and a Tour through the Country of the Don Cossacks. By LAURENCE OLIPHANT, Esq. Octavo, with Map and other Illustrations. Fourth Edition, 14s.

Minnesota and the Far West. By Laurence Oliphant.

Octavo, Illustrated with Engravings, 12s. 6d. " It affords us increased knowledge of the extraordinary resources which await the emigrant at the head of the Great American Waters, and is a lively forecast of the prosperity of the States just emerging into existence in the Heart of the Wilderness, Mr Oliphant hus foreseen great future events with a clear eye."-The Timcs.

The Transcaucasian Campaign of the Turkish Army under

Omer Pasha: A Personal Narrative. By LAURENCE OLIPHANT, Esq. With Map and Illustrations. Post Octavo, l0s. 6d.

Egypt, the Soudan, and Central Africa: With Explorations

By LIEUT.-COL. FREMANTLE. With Portraits of PRESIDENT Davis, GENERALS

POLK, LEE, LONGSTREET, BEAUREGARD, AND JOHNSTON. Crown Octavo, 78. 6d. “ The whole of the book is as well worth reading as that published extract. It conveys a very fair idea of what manner of men they are who are now fighting in the South for their indepen. dence; and being written in a very unpretending style, it is both an agreeable and valuable glimpse of the interior of the Confederacy."-Spectator.
