The “HOME AND COLONIAL LIBRARY" having been sustained during a period of Six years with unabated success, Mr. Murray, anxious to guard against the objection of overloading the subscribers with too large and cumbrous a series of books of one size, decided on concluding the work with its thirty-seventh volume. He is thus enabled to offer to the public a compact and portable work, the bulk of which does not exceed the compass of a single shell, or of one trunk, suited for all classes and all climates-of which the interest, value, and popularity is not likely to be impaired by lapse of time.

At the same time, the large circulation of the “Home and Colonial Library," and the continued demand for back numbers, convince him that there is an unabated desire on the part of the public for reading, at once cheap, popular, and instructive; he is therefore preparing speedily to put forth a New Library, which, though equally portable, shall be even more elegant in typography than the last, and shall surpass, or at least maintain, its literary value and general attraction.

Uniform with the above Series. HUMBOLDT'S COSMOS. (Sabine's authorised Edition.) 3 vols. post 8vo. HUMBOLDT'S ASPECTS OF NATURE. (Sabine's authorised Edition.) 2 vols, post 8vo.

BRADBURY AND EVANS, PRINTERS, WHITEFRIARS.
