SECTION I--HISTORY, BIOGRAPHY, and TRAVELS
==========================================



Baker (Sir Samuel W.).
----------------------


THE NILE TRIBUTARIES OF ABYSSINIA, and the Sword-Hunters of the Hamran
Arabs. By _Sir Samuel W. Baker_, M.A., F.R.C.S. With Portraits, Maps, and
Illustrations. Third Edition, 8vo. 21_s_.

_Sir Samuel Baker here describes twelve months' exploration, during which
he examined the rivers that are tributary to the Nile from Abyssinia,
including the Atbara, Settite, Royan, Salaam, Angrab, Rahad, Dinder, and
the Blue Nile. The interest attached to these portions of Africa differs
entirely from that of the White Nile regions, as the whole of Upper Egypt
and Abyssinia is capable of development, and is inhabited by races having
some degree of civilization; while Central Africa is peopled by a race of
savages, whose future is more problematical_.

THE ALBERT N'YANZA Great Basin of the Nile, and Exploration of the Nile
Sources. New and cheaper Edition, with Portraits, Maps, and Illustrations.
Two vols. crown 8vo. 16_s_.

"_Bruce won the source of the Blue Nile; Speke and Grant won the Victoria
source of the great White Nile; and I have been permitted to succeed in
completing the Nile Sources by the discovery of the great reservoir of the
equatorial waters, the Albert N'yanza, from which the river issues as the
entire White Nile_."--_Preface_.

CAST UP BY THE SEA; or, The Adventures of _Ned Grey_. By _Sir Samuel W.
Baker_, M.A., F.R.G.S. Second Edition. Crown 8vo. cloth gilt, 7_s_. 6_d_.

"_A story of adventure by sea and land in the good old style. It appears
to us to be the best book of the kind since 'Masterman Ready,' and it runs
that established favourite very close._"--_Pall Mall Gazette_.

"_No book written for boys has for a long time created so much interest,
or been so successful. Every parent ought to provide his boy with a
copy._"--_Daily Telegraph_.



R. Dudley, M.A.
---------------


THE TAXATION OF THE UNITED KINGDOM. By _R. Dudley Baxter_, M.A. 8vo.
cloth, 4_s_. 6_d_.

_The First Part of this work, originally read before the Statistical
Society of London, deals with the Amount of Taxation; the Second Part,
which now constitutes the main portion of the work, is almost entirely
new, and embraces the important questions of Rating, of the relative
Taxation of Land, Personalty, and Industry, and of the direct effect of
Taxes upon Prices. The author trusts that the body of facts here collected
may be of permanent value as a record of the past progress and present
condition of the population of the United Kingdom, independently of the
transitory circumstances of its present Taxation._

NATIONAL INCOME. With Coloured Diagrams. 8vo. 3_s_. 6_d_.

_Part I._--_Classification of the Population, Upper, Middle, and Labour
Classes_. II.--_Income of the United Kingdom_.

"_A painstaking and certainly most interesting inquiry._"--_Pall Mall
Gazette_.

Bright (John, M.P.)
-------------------


SPEECHES ON QUESTIONS OF PUBLIC POLICY. By _John Bright_, M.P. Edited by
Professor _Thorold Rogers_. Two Vols. 8vo. 25_s_. Second Edition, with
Portrait.

"_I have divided the Speeches contained in these volumes into groups. The
materials for selection are so abundant, that I have been constrained to
omit many a speech which is worthy of careful perusal. I have naturally
given prominence to those subjects with which Mr. Bright has been
especially identified, as, for example, India, America, Ireland, and
Parliamentary Reform. But nearly every topic of great public interest on
which Mr. Bright has spoken is represented in these volumes._"--_Editor's
Preface._

AUTHOR'S POPULAR EDITION. Extra fcap. 8vo. cloth. Second Edition. 3_s_.
6_d_.



Bryce
-----


THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE. By _James Bryce_, B.C.L., Fellow of Oriel College,

CAMBRIDGE CHARACTERISTICS. _See_ _Mullinger_.

of the Preston Gaol. With Selections from his Reports and Correspondence,
and a Sketch of Prison Discipline in England. By his Son, the Rev. _W.L.
Clay_, M.A. 8vo. 15_s_.

_"Few books have appeared of late years better entitled to an attentive
perusal.... It presents a complete narrative of all that has been done and
attempted by various philanthropists for the amelioration of the condition
and the improvement of the morals of the criminal classes in the British
dominions."_--_London Review_.



Cooper
------


ATHENÆ CANTABRIGIENSES. By _Charles Henry Cooper_, F.S.A., and _Thompson
Cooper_, F.S.A. Vol. I. 8vo., 1500-85, 18_s_. Vol. II., 1586-1609, 18_s_.

_This elaborate work, which is dedicated by permission to Lord Macaulay,
contains lives of the eminent men sent forth by Cambridge, after the
fashion of Anthony à Wood, in his famous "Athenæ Oxonienses."_



Dilke
-----


GREATER BRITAIN. A Record of Travel in English-speaking Countries during
1866-7. (America, Australia, India.) By Sir _Charles Wentworth Dilke_,
M.P. Cheap Edition. Crown 8vo. 6_s_.

_"Mr. Dilke has written a book which is probably as well worth reading as
any book of the same aims and character that ever was written. Its merits
are that it is written in a lively and agreeable style, that it implies a
great deal of physical pluck, that no page of it fails to show an acute
and highly intelligent observer, that it stimulates the imagination as
well as the judgment of the reader, and that it is on perhaps the most
interesting subject that can attract an Englishman who cares about his
country."_--_SATURDAY REVIEW_.

EARLY EGYPTIAN HISTORY FOR THE YOUNG. _See_ "_Juvenile Section_."



Forbes
------


LIFE OF PROFESSOR EDWARD FORBES, F.R.S. By _George Wilson_, M.D.,
F.R.S.E., and _Archibald Geikie_, F.R.S. 8vo. with Portrait, 14_s_.

_"From the first page to the last the book claims careful reading, as
being a full but not overcrowded rehearsal of a most instructive life, and
the true picture of a mind that was rare in strength and
beauty."_--_EXAMINER_.



Freeman
-------


HISTORY OF FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, from the Foundation of the Achaian League
to the Disruption of the United States. By _Edward A. Freeman_, M.A. Vol.
I. General Introduction. History of the Greek Federations. 8vo. 21_s_.

_"The task Mr. Freeman has undertaken is one of great magnitude and
importance. It is also a task of an almost entirely novel character. No
other work professing to give the history of a political principle occurs
to us, except the slight contributions to the history of representative
government that is contained in a course of M. Guizof's lectures.... The
history of the development of a principle is at least as important as the
history of a dynasty, or of a race."_--_Saturday Review_.



French (George Russell)
-----------------------


SHAKSPEAREANA GENEALOGICA. 8vo. cloth extra, 15_s_. Uniform with the
"Cambridge Shakespeare."

_Part I.--Identification of the_ dramatis personæ _in the historical
plays, from King John to King Henry VIII.; Notes on Characters in Macbeth
and Hamlet; Persons and Places belonging to Warwickshire alluded to. Part
II.--The Shakspeare and Arden families and their connexions, with Tables
of descent. The present is the first attempt to give a detailed
description, in consecutive order, of each of the_ dramatis personæ _in
Shakspeare's immortal chronicle-histories, and some of the characters have
been, it is believed, herein identified for the first time. A clue is
furnished which, followed up with ordinary diligence, may enable any one,
with a taste for the pursuit, to trace a distinguished Shakspearean worthy
to his lineal representative in the present day._



Gladstone (Right. Hon. W.E., M.P.)
----------------------------------


JUVENTUS MUNDI. The Gods and Men of the Heroic Age. Crown 8vo. cloth
extra. With Map. 10_s_. 6_d_.

_This new work of Mr. Gladstone deals especially with the historic element
in Homer, expounding that element, and furnishing by its aid a full
account of the Homeric men and the Homeric religion. It starts, after the
introductory chapter, with a discussion of the several races then existing
in Hellas, including the influence of the Phoenicians and Egyptians. It
contains chapters on the Olympian system, with its several deities; on the
Ethics and the Polity of the Heroic age; on the geography of Homer; on the
characters of the Poems; presenting, in fine, a view of primitive life and
primitive society as found in the poems of Homer._

"GLOBE" ATLAS OF EUROPE. Uniform in size with Macmillan's Globe Series,
containing 45 Coloured Maps, on a uniform scale and projection; with Plans
of London and Paris, and a copious Index. Strongly bound in half-morocco,
with flexible back, 9_s_.

_This Atlas includes all the countries of Europe in a series of 48 Maps,
drawn on the same scale, with an Alphabetical Index to the situation of
more than ten thousand places, and the relation of the various maps and
countries to each other is defined in a general Key-map. All the maps
being on a uniform scale facilitates the comparison of extent and
distance, and conveys a just impression of the relative magnitude of
different countries. The size suffices to show the provincial divisions,
the railways and main roads, the principal rivers and mountain ranges.
"This atlas," writes the_ British Quarterly_, "will be an invaluable boon
for the school, the desk, or the traveller's portmanteau."_



Guizot--(Author of "_John Halifax, Gentleman_.")
------------------------------------------------


--M. DE BARANTE, A Memoir, Biographical and Autobiographical. By _M.
Guizot_. Translated by the Author of "_John Halifax, Gentleman_." Crown
8vo. 6_s_. 6_d_.

_"The highest purposes of both history and biography are answered by a
memoir so lifelike, so faithful, and so philosophical."_--_British
Quarterly Review_.

HISTORICAL SELECTIONS. Readings from the best Authorities on English and
European History. Selected and arranged by _E.M. Sewell_ and _C.M. Yonge_.
Crown 8vo. 6_s_.

_When young children have acquired the outlines of history from
abridgements and catechisms, and it becomes desirable to give a more
enlarged view of the subject, in order to render it really useful and
interesting, a difficulty often arises as to the choice of books. Two
courses are open, either to take a general and consequently dry history of
facts, such as Russell's Modern Europe, or to choose some work treating of
a particular period or subject, such as the works of Macaulay and Froude.
The former course usually renders history uninteresting; the latter is
unsatisfactory, because it is not sufficiently comprehensive. To remedy
this difficulty, selections, continuous and chronological, have in the
present volume been taken from the larger works of Freeman, Milman,
Palgrave, and others, which may serve as distinct landmarks of historical
reading. "We know of scarcely anything," says the_ Guardian, _of this
volume, "which is so likely to raise to a higher level the average
standard of English education."_



Hole
----


A GENEALOGICAL STEMMA OF THE KINGS OF ENGLAND AND FRANCE. By the Rev. _C.
Hole_, M.A., Trinity College, Cambridge. On Sheet, 1_s_.

_The different families are printed in distinguishing colours, thus
facilitating reference._

A BRIEF BIOGRAPHICAL DICTIONARY. Compiled and Arranged by the Rev.
_Charles Hole_, M.A. Second Edition. 18mo. neatly and strongly bound in
cloth, 4_s_. 6_d_.

_One of the most comprehensive and accurate Biographical Dictionaries in
the world, containing more than 18,000 persons of all countries, with
dates of birth and death, and what they were distinguished for. Extreme
care has been bestowed on the verification of the dates; and thus numerous
errors, current in previous works, have been corrected. Its size adapts it
for the desk, portmanteau, or pocket._

_"An invaluable addition to our manuals of reference, and, from its
moderate price, cannot fail to become as popular as it is
useful."_--_Times_.



Hozier
------


THE SEVEN WEEKS' WAR; its Antecedents and its Incidents. By _H.M. Hozier_.
With Maps and Plans. Two vols. 8vo. 28_s_.

_This work is based upon letters reprinted by permission from_ "The
Times." _For the most part it is a product of a personal eye-witness of
some of the most interesting incidents of a war which, for rapidity and
decisive results, may claim an almost unrivalled position in history._



Irving
------


THE ANNALS OF OUR TIME. A Diurnal of Events, Social and Political, which
have happened in or had relation to the Kingdom of Great Britain, from the
Accession of Queen Victoria to the Opening of the present Parliament. By
_Joseph Irving_. 8vo. half-bound. 18_s_.

_"We have before us a trusty and ready guide to the events of the past
thirty years, available equally for the statesman, the politician, the
public writer, and the general reader. If Mr. Irving's object has been to
bring before the reader all the most noteworthy occurrences which have
happened since the beginning of Her Majesty's reign, he may justly claim
the credit of having done so most briefly, succinctly, and simply, and in
such a manner, too, as to furnish him with the details necessary in each
case to comprehend the event of which he is in search in an intelligent
manner. Reflection will serve to show the great value of such a work as
this to the journalist and statesman, and indeed to every one who feels an
interest in the progress of the age; and we may add that its value is
considerably increased by the addition of that most important of all
appendices, an accurate and instructive index_."--_Times_.



Kingsley (Canon)
----------------


ON THE ANCIEN REGIME as it Existed on the Continent before the _French
Revolution_. Three Lectures delivered at the Royal Institution. By the
Rev. _C. Kingsley_, M.A., formerly Professor of Modern History in the
University of Cambridge. Crown 8vo. 6_s_.

_These three lectures discuss severally_ (1) _Caste_, (2)
_Centralization_, (3) _The Explosive Forces by which the Revolution was
superinduced. The Preface deals at some length with certain political
questions of the present day_.

THE ROMAN AND THE TEUTON. A Series of Lectures delivered before the
University of Cambridge. By Rev. _C. Kingsley_, M.A. 8vo. 12_s_.

_Contents_:--_Inaugural Lecture; The Forest Children; The Dying Empire;
The Human Deluge; The Gothic Civilizer; Dietrich's End; The Nemesis of the
Goths; Paulus Diaconus; The Clergy and the Heathen; The Monk a Civilizer;
The Lombard Laws; The Popes and the Lombards; The Strategy of Providence._



Latham
------


BLACK AND WHITE: a Journal of a Three Months' Tour in the United States.
By _Henry Latham_, M.A., Barrister-at-Law. 8vo. 10_s_. 6_d_.

"_The spirit in which Mr. Latham has written about our brethren in America
is commendable in high degree._"--_Athenæum_.



Law
---


THE ALPS OF HANNIBAL. By _William John Law_, M.A., formerly Student of
Christ Church, Oxford. Two vols. 8vo. 21_s_.

"_No one can read the work and not acquire a conviction that, in addition
to a thorough grasp of a particular topic, its writer has at command a
large store of reading and thought upon many cognate points of ancient
history and geography._"--_Quarterly Review_.



Liverpool
---------


THE LIFE AND ADMINISTRATION OF ROBERT BANKS, SECOND EARL OF LIVERPOOL,
K.G. Compiled from Original Family Documents by _Charles Duke Yonge_,
Regius Professor of History and English Literature in Queen's College,
Belfast; and Author of "The History of the British Navy," "The History of
France under the Bourbons," etc. Three vols. 8vo. 42_s_.

_Since the time of Lord Burleigh no one, except the second Pitt, ever
enjoyed so long a tenure of power; with the same exception, no one ever
held office at so critical a time.... Lord Liverpool is the very last
minister who has been able fully to carry out his own political views; who
has been so strong that in matters of general policy the Opposition could
extort no concessions from him which were not sanctioned by his own
deliberate judgment. The present work is founded almost entirely on the
correspondence left behind him by Lord Liverpool, and now in the
possession of Colonel and Lady Catherine Harcourt._

"_Full of information and instruction._"--_Fortnightly Review_.



Maclear
-------


_See Section_, "_Ecclesiastical History_."



Macmillan (Rev. Hugh)

Plants. By the Rev. _Hugh Macmillan_, Author of "Bible Teachings in
Nature," etc. Crown 8vo. cloth. 6_s_.

"_Botanical knowledge is blended with a love of nature, a pious
enthusiasm, and a rich felicity of diction not to be met with in any works
of kindred character, if we except those of Hugh Miller._"--_Daily
Telegraph_.

FOOT-NOTES FROM THE PAGE OF NATURE. With numerous Illustrations. Fcap.
8vo. 5_s_.

"_Those who have derived pleasure and profit from the study of flowers and
ferns_--_subjects, it is pleasing to find, now everywhere popular_--_by
descending lower into the arcana of the vegetable kingdom, will find a
still more interesting and delightful field of research in the objects
brought under review in the following pages_."--_Preface_.



Martin
------

Publication.) A Statistical, Mercantile, and Historical Account of the
Civilized World for the Year 1868. Forming a Manual for Politicians and
Merchants. Published annually. Crown 8vo. 10s, 6_d_.

"_Everybody who knows this work is aware that it is a book that is
indispensable to writers, financiers, politicians, statesmen, and all who
are directly or indirectly interested in the political, social,
industrial, commercial, and financial condition of their fellow-creatures
at home and abroad. Mr. Martin deserves warm commendation for the care he
takes in making 'The Statesman's Year Book' complete and correct."_--
_Standard_.

Masson (Professor)
------------------


ESSAYS, BIOGRAPHICAL AND CRITICAL. _See Section headed_ "_Poetry And

LIFE OF JOHN MILTON. Narrated in connexion with the Political,
Ecclesiastical, and Literary History of his Time. By _David Masson_, M.A.,
LL.D., Professor of Rhetoric at Edinburgh. Vol. I. with Portraits. 8vo.
18_s_. Vol. II. in the Press.

_It is intended to exhibit Milton's life in its connexions with all the
more notable phenomena of the period of British history in which it was
cast--its state politics, its ecclesiastical variations, its literature
and speculative thought. Commencing in 1608, the Life of Milton proceeds
through the last sixteen years of the reign of James I., includes the
whole of the reign of Charles I. and the subsequent years of the
Commonwealth and the Protectorate, and then, passing the Restoration,
extends itself to 1674, or through fourteen years of the new state of
things under Charles II. The first volume deals with the life of Milton as
extending from 1608 to 1640, which was the period of his education and of
his minor poems._



Morison
-------


THE LIFE AND TIMES OF SAINT BERNARD, Abbot of Clairvaux. By _James Cotter
Morison_, M.A. New Edition, revised. Crown 8vo. 7_s_. 6_d_.

"_One of the best contributions in our literature towards a vivid,
intelligent, and worthy knowledge of European interests and thoughts and
feelings during the twelfth century. A delightful and instructive volume,
and one of the best products of the modern historic spirit_."--_Pall Mall
Gazette_.



Morley (John)
-------------


EDMUND BURKE, a Historical Study. By _John Morley_, B.A. Oxon. Crown 8vo.
7_s_. 6_d_.

"_The style is terse and incisive, and brilliant with epigram and point.
It contains pithy aphoristic sentences which Burke himself would not have
disowned. But these are not its best features: its sustained power of
reasoning, its wide sweep of observation and reflection, its elevated
ethical and social tone, stamp it as a work of high excellence, and as
such we cordially recommend it to our readers._"--_Saturday Review_.



Mullinger
---------


CAMBRIDGE CHARACTERISTICS IN THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY. By _J.B. Mullinger_,
B.A. Crown 8vo. 4_s_. 6_d_.

"_It is a very entertaining and readable book._"--_Saturday Review_.

N.I. Fourth and cheaper Edition. With Maps, Plans, and Portrait of Author,
engraved on steel by Jeens. Crown 8vo. 7_s_. 6_d_.

"_Considering the extent of our previous ignorance, the amount of his
achievements, and the importance of his contributions to our knowledge, we
cannot say less of him than was once said of a far greater discoverer. Mr.
Palgrave has indeed given a new world to Europe._"--_Pall Mall Gazette_.



Parkes (Henry)
--------------


AUSTRALIAN VIEWS OF ENGLAND. By _Henry Parkes_. Crown 8vo. cloth. 3_s_.
6_d_.

"_The following letters were written during a residence in England, in the
years 1861 and 1862, and were published in the_ Sydney Morning Herald _on
the arrival of the monthly mails.... On re-perusal, these letters appear
to contain views of English life and impressions of English notabilities
which, as the views and impressions of an Englishman on his return to his
native country after an absence of twenty years, may not be without
interest to the English reader. The writer had opportunities of mixing
with different classes of the British people, and of hearing opinions on
passing events from opposite standpoints of observation._"--_Author's
Preface_.



Ralegh
------


THE LIFE OF SIR WALTER RALEGH, based upon Contemporary Documents. By
_Edward Edwards_. Together with Ralegh's Letters, now first collected.
With Portrait. Two vols. 8vo. 32_s_.

"_Mr. Edwards has certainly written the Life of Ralegh from fuller
information than any previous biographer. He is intelligent, industrious,
sympathetic: and the world has in his two volumes larger means afforded it
of knowing Ralegh than it ever possessed before. The new letters and the
newly-edited old letters are in themselves a boon._"--_Pall Mall Gazette_.



Robinson (Crabb)
----------------


DIARY, REMINISCENCES, AND CORRESPONDENCE OF CRABB ROBINSON. Selected and
Edited by Dr. _Sadler_. With Portrait. Three vols. 8vo. cloth. 36_s_.

_Mr. Crabb Robinson's Diary extends over the greater part of
three-quarters of a century. It contains personal reminiscences of some
of the most distinguished characters of that period, including Goethe,
Wieland, De Quincey, Wordsworth (with whom Mr. Crabb Robinson was on
terms of great intimacy), Madame de Staël, Lafayette, Coleridge, Lamb,
Milman, &c. &c.: and includes a vast variety of subjects, political,
literary, ecclesiastical, and miscellaneous._

8_s_. 6_d_.

_A sort of impression rests on most minds that French literature begins
with the "siecle de Louis Quatorze;" any previous literature being for the
most part unknown or ignored. Few know anything of the enormous literary
activity that began in the thirteenth century, was carried on by Rulebeuf,
Marie de France, Gaston de Foix, Thibault de Champagne, and Lorris; was
fostered by Charles of Orleans, by Margaret of Valois, by Francis the
First; that gave a crowd of versifiers to France, enriched, strengthened,
developed, and fixed the French language, and prepared the way for
Corneille and for Racine. The present work aims to afford information and
direction touching the early efforts of France in poetical literature._

very best, if not to all of the early French poets_."--_Athenæum_.

University of Oxford:--

THE RETURN OF THE GUARDS, AND OTHER POEMS. Fcap. 8vo. 7_s_.

"_Good wine needs no bush, nor good verse a preface; and Sir Francis

"_ The following year was memorable for the commencement of the 'Guesses
at Truth.' He and his Oxford brother, living as they did in constant and
free interchange of thought on questions of philosophy and literature and

of unconscious nature_."--_Westminster Review_.

Second Edition. Fcap. 8vo. 5_s_.

"_She handles her little marvel with that rare poetic discrimination which
neither exhausts it of its simple wonders by pushing symbolism too far,

to the mature than to children, though it would be delightful to
all_."--_Spectator_.

Rossetti_. Fcap. 8vo. 6_s_.

current of their sympathies checked, by coming upon that which, however
beautiful as poetry, out of higher respects they must reject and
condemn_--_in which, too, they shall not fear that snares are being laid
for them, to entangle them unawares in admiration for ought which is
inconsistent with their faith and fealty to their own spiritual
mother_."--_Preface_.

the Poet Laureate. Fcap. 8vo. 4_s_. 6_d_.

"_The Sonnets are dedicated to Mr. Tennyson by his brother, and have,
independently of their merits, an interest of association. They both love
to write in simple expressive Saxon; both love to touch their imagery in
epithets rather than in formal similes; both have a delicate perception of
rythmical movement, and thus Mr. Turner has occasional lines which, for
phrase and music, might be ascribed to his brother.... He knows the haunts
of the wild rose, the shady nooks where light quivers through the leaves,
the ruralities, in short, of the land of imagination_"--_Atheneum_.

SMALL TABLEAUX. Fcap. 8vo. 4_s. 6d_.

"_These brief poems have not only a peculiar kind of interest for the
student of English poetry, but are intrinsically delightful, and will
reward a careful and frequent perusal. Full of naiveté, piety, love, and
knowledge of natural objects, and each expressing a single and generally a
simple subject by means of minute and original pictorial touches, these
sonnets have a place of their own_."--_Pall Mall Gazette_.



Vittoria Colonna
----------------


LIFE AND POEMS. By Mrs. _Henry Roscoe_. Crown 8vo. 9_s_.

_The life of Vittoria Colonna, the celebrated Marchesa di Pescara, has
received but cursory notice from any English writer, though in every
history of Italy her name is mentioned with great honour among the poets
of the sixteenth century. "In three hundred and fifty years," says her
biographer Visconti, "there has been no other Italian lady who can be
compared to her."_

"_It is written with good taste, with quick and intelligent sympathy,
occasionally with a real freshness and charm of style_"--_Pall Mall
Gazette_.

"_Mrs. Webster has shown us that she is able to draw admirably from the
life; that she can observe with subtlety, and render her observations with
delicacy; that she can impersonate complex conceptions, and venture into
which few living writers can follow her_."--_Guardian_.



Woolner
-------


MY BEAUTIFUL LADY. By THOMAS WOOLNER. With a Vignette by _Arthur Hughes_.
_Third Edition_. Fcap. 8vo. 5_s_.

"_It is clearly the product of no idle hour, but a highly-conceived and
faithfully-executed task, self-imposed, and prompted by that inward
yearning to utter great thoughts, and a wealth of passionate feeling which
is poetic genius. No man can read this poem without being struck by the
fitness and finish of the workmanship, so to speak, as well as by the
chastened and unpretending loftiness of thought which pervades the
whole_." _Globe_.

Vignette and Frontispiece. 18mo. Extra cloth gilt, 2_s. 6d_. _Cheaper
