BOOKS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE.


BY G. A. HENTY.


St. Bartholomew's Eve: A Tale of the Huguenot Wars. By G. A. HENTY.
With 12 page Illustrations by H. J. DRAPER, and a Map. Crown 8vo,
cloth elegant, olivine edges, 6_s._

    The title of this story takes you at once to its subject. The
    hero, Philip Fletcher, is a right true English lad, but he has a
    French connection on the mother's side. This kinship induces him
    to cross the Channel in order to take a share in that splendid
    struggle for freedom known as the Huguenot wars. Naturally he
    sides with the Protestants, distinguishes himself in various
    battles, and receives rapid promotion for the zeal and daring with
    which he carries out several secret missions. At length, however,
    he is entrapped in Paris, with other prominent Huguenots, on that
    terrible St. Bartholomew's Eve, when the tocsin gave the signal
    at midnight for the massacre to begin. It is an enthralling
    narrative, and the chapter which deals with the escape of the hero
    out of that monstrous city is one of the most thrilling in a story
    which is full of interest.

Through the Sikh War: A Tale of the Conquest of the Punjaub. By G. A.
HENTY. With 12 page Illustrations by HAL HURST, and a Map. Crown 8vo,
cloth elegant, olivine edges, 6_s._

    This story gives a vivid picture of the pluck and obstinacy with
    which the British maintained their ascendency in India. Percy
    Groves, a spirited English lad, leaves school to join his uncle in
    the Punjaub, where he is governor of a district under the native
    Sikh prince, Runjeet Singh. The natives are in a state of revolt,
    and Percy takes an active part in all the troubles which precede
    the Sikh war. His uncle's fortress is beleaguered, and he assists
    in repelling the attack. Then when the authorities at Lahore
    proclaim war Percy joins the British force as a volunteer, and
    takes a distinguished share in the famous battles of Moodkee,
    Sobraon, and Chillianwalla. Apart from its high interest as a
    record of personal daring, this story shows in dashing style how
    Englishmen have made an Empire.

--_Spectator._


Beric the Briton: A Story of the Roman Invasion. By G. A. HENTY. With
12 page Illustrations by W. PARKINSON. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant,
olivine edges, 6_s._

    "Beric the Briton is the boy's book of the year."--_Observer._

    "We are not aware that any one has given us quite so vigorous a
    picture of Britain in the days of the Roman conquest. Mr. Henty
    has done his utmost to make an impressive picture of the haughty
    Roman character, with its indomitable courage, sternness, and
    discipline. _Beric_ is good all through."--_Spectator._

By G. A. HENTY. With 12 page Illustrations by W. S. STACEY, and a Map.
Crown 8vo, cloth elegant, Olivine edges, 6_s._

    "There are adventures of all kinds for the hero and his friends,
    whose pluck and ingenuity in extricating themselves from awkward
    fixes are always equal to the occasion. It is an excellent story,
    and if the proportion of history is smaller than usual, the whole
    result leaves nothing to be desired."--_Journal of
    Education._

Redskin and Cow-boy: A Tale of the Western Plains. By G. A. HENTY.
With 12 page Illustrations by ALFRED PEARSE. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant,
olivine edges, 6_s._

    "It has a good plot; it abounds in action; the scenes are equally
    spirited and realistic, and we can only say we have read it with
    much pleasure from first to last. The pictures of life on a cattle
    ranche are most graphically painted, as are the manners of the
    reckless but jovial cow-boys."--_Times._

The Dash for Khartoum: A Tale of the Nile Expedition. By G. A. HENTY.
With 10 page Illustrations by J. SCHÖNBERG and J. NASH, and 4 Plans.
Crown 8vo, cloth elegant, olivine edges, 6_s._

    "The Dash for Khartoum is your ideal boys' book."--_Tablet._

    "It is literally true that the narrative never flags a moment; for
    the incidents which fall to be recorded after the dash for
    Khartoum has been made and failed are quite as interesting as
    those which precede it."--_Academy._

By England's Aid: The Freeing of the Netherlands (1585-1604). By G. A.
HENTY. With 10 page Illustrations by ALFRED PEARSE, and 4 Maps. Crown
8vo, cloth elegant, olivine edges, 6_s._

    "Boys know and love Mr. Henty's books of adventure, and will
    welcome his tale of the Freeing of the Netherlands."--_Athenæum._

    "The story is told with great animation, and the historical
    material is most effectively combined with a most excellent
    plot."--_Saturday Review._

By Right Of Conquest: Or, With Cortez in Mexico. By G. A. HENTY. With
10 page Illustrations by W. S. STACEY, and 2 Maps. Crown 8vo, cloth
elegant, olivine edges, 6_s._

    "Mr. Henty's skill has never been more convincingly displayed than
    in this admirable and ingenious story."--_Saturday Review._

    "_By Right of Conquest_ is the nearest approach to a
    perfectly successful historical tale that Mr. Henty has yet
    published."--_Academy._

living."--_The Times._


With Lee in Virginia: A Story of the American Civil War. By G. A.
HENTY. With 10 page Illustrations by GORDON BROWNE, and 6 Maps. Crown
8vo, cloth elegant, olivine edges, 6_s._

    "The story is a capital one and full of variety, and presents us
    with many picturesque scenes of Southern life. Young Wingfield,
    who is conscientious, spirited, and 'hard as nails,' would have
    been a man after the very heart of Stonewall
    Jackson."--_Times._

By Pike and Dyke: A Tale of the Rise of the Dutch Republic. By G. A.
HENTY. With 10 page Illustrations by MAYNARD BROWN, and 4 Maps. Crown
8vo, cloth elegant, olivine edges, 6_s._

    "The mission of Ned to deliver letters from William the Silent to
    his adherents at Brussels, the fight of the _Good Venture_
    with the Spanish man-of-war, the battle on the ice at Amsterdam,
    the siege of Haarlem, are all told with a vividness and skill,
    which are worthy of Mr. Henty at his best."--_Academy._

With Clive in India: Or, The Beginnings of an Empire. By G. A. HENTY.
With 12 page Illustrations by GORDON BROWNE. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant,
olivine edges, 6_s._

    "Among writers of stories of adventure for boys Mr. Henty stands
    in the very first rank. Those who know something about India will
    be the most ready to thank Mr. Henty for giving them this
    instructive volume to place in the hands of their
    children."--_Academy._

The Lion of St. Mark: A Tale of Venice in the Fourteenth Century. By
G. A. HENTY. With 10 page Illustrations by GORDON BROWNE. Crown 8vo,
cloth elegant, olivine edges, 6_s._

    "Every boy should read _The Lion of St. Mark._ Mr. Henty has
    never produced any story more delightful, more wholesome, or more
    vivacious. From first to last it will be read with keen
    enjoyment."--_The Saturday Review._

Under Drake's Flag: A Tale of the Spanish Main. By G. A. HENTY.
Illustrated by 12 page Pictures by GORDON BROWNE. Crown 8vo, cloth
elegant, olivine edges, 6_s._

    "There is not a dull chapter, nor, indeed, a dull page in the
    book; but the author has so carefully worked up his subject that
    the exciting deeds of his heroes are never incongruous or
    absurd."--_Observer._

Bonnie Prince Charlie: A Tale of Fontenoy and Culloden. By G. A.
HENTY. With 12 page Illustrations by GORDON BROWNE. Crown 8vo, cloth
elegant, olivine edges, 6_s._

    "Ronald, the hero, is very like the hero of _Quentin Durward._ The
    lad's journey across France with his faithful attendant Malcolm,
    and his hairbreadth escapes from the machinations of his father's
    enemies, make up as good a narrative of the kind as we have ever
    read. For freshness of treatment and variety of incident, Mr.
    Henty has here surpassed himself."--_Spectator._

10 page Illustrations by S. J. SOLOMON, and a Coloured Map. Crown 8vo,
cloth elegant, olivine edges, 6_s._

    "Mr. Henty's graphic prose pictures of the hopeless Jewish
    resistance to Roman sway adds another leaf to his record of the
    famous wars of the world. The book is one of Mr. Henty's cleverest
    efforts."--_Graphic._

True to the Old Flag: A Tale of the American War of Independence. By
G. A. HENTY. With 12 page Illustrations by GORDON BROWNE. Crown 8vo,
cloth elegant, olivine edges, 6_s._

    "Does justice to the pluck and determination of the British
    soldiers. The son of an American loyalist, who remains true to our
    flag, falls among the hostile redskins in that very Huron country
    which has been endeared to us by the exploits of Hawkeye and
    Chingachgook."--_The Times._

The Lion Of the North: A Tale of Gustavus Adolphus and the Wars of
Religion. By G. A. HENTY. With 12 page Pictures by J. SCHÖNBERG. Crown
8vo, cloth elegant, olivine edges, 6_s._

    "A praiseworthy attempt to interest British youth in the great
    deeds of the Scotch Brigade in the wars of Gustavus Adolphus.
    Mackay, Hepburn, and Munro live again in Mr. Henty's pages, as
    those deserve to live whose disciplined bands formed really the
    germ of the modern British army."--_Athenæum._

The Young Carthaginian: a Story of the Times of Hannibal. By G. A.
HENTY. With 12 page Illustrations by C. J. STANILAND, R.I. Crown 8vo,
cloth elegant, olivine edges, 6_s._

    "The effect of an interesting story, well constructed and vividly
    told, is enhanced by the picturesque quality of the scenic
    background. From first to last nothing stays the interest of the
    narrative. It bears us along as on a stream, whose current varies
    in direction, but never loses its force."--_Saturday Review._

With Wolfe in Canada: Or, The Winning of a Continent. By G. A. HENTY.
With 12 page Illustrations by GORDON BROWNE. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant,
olivine edges, 6_s._

    "A model of what a boys' story-book should be. Mr. Henty has a
    great power of infusing into the dead facts of history new life,
    and as no pains are spared by him to ensure accuracy in historic
    details, his books supply useful aids to study as well as
    amusement."--_School Guardian._

In Freedom's Cause: A Story of Wallace and Bruce. By G. A. HENTY. With
12 page Illustrations by GORDON BROWNE. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant,
olivine edges, 6_s._

    "Mr. Henty has broken new ground as an historical novelist. His
    tale of the days of Wallace and Bruce is full of stirring action,
    and will commend itself to boys."--_Athenæum._

Through the Fray: A Story of the Luddite Riots. By G. A. HENTY. With
12 page Illustrations by H. M. PAGET. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant,
olivine edges, 6_s._

    "Mr. Henty inspires a love and admiration for straightforwardness,
    truth, and courage. This is one of the best of the many good books
    Mr. Henty has produced, and deserves to be classed with his
    _Facing Death_."--_Standard._

Captain Bayley's Heir: A Tale of the Gold Fields of California. By G.
A. HENTY. With 12 page Illustrations by H. M. PAGET. Crown 8vo, cloth
elegant, olivine edges, 6_s._

    "A Westminster boy who makes his way in the world by hard work,
    good temper, and unfailing courage. The descriptions given of life
    are just what a healthy intelligent lad should delight
    in."--_St. James's Gazette._

A Jacobite Exile: Being the Adventures of a Young Englishman in the
Service of Charles XII. of Sweden. By G. A. HENTY. With 8 page
Illustrations by PAUL HARDY, and a Map. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant,
olivine edges, 5_s._

    In this story Sir Marmaduke Carstairs, who is a Jacobite, is
    denounced as a plotter against the life of King William, and
    although innocent of the charge, he has to flee from England. His
    son Charlie, who goes with him to Sweden, is the hero of the tale.
    This youth joins the foreign legion under Charles XII. of Sweden,
    and takes a distinguished part in several famous campaigns against
    the Russians and the Poles. Besides his stirring career as a
    soldier, the narrative is full of the hero's personal adventures
    in Poland, Sweden, Russia, and England. The narrative swings along
    at a breathless pace, and holds the reader entranced to the end.

Condemned as a Nihilist: A Story of Escape from Siberia. By G. A.
HENTY. With 8 page Illustrations by WALTER PAGET. Crown 8vo, cloth
elegant, olivine edges, 5_s._

    "The best of this year's Henty. His narrative is more interesting
    than many of the tales with which the public is familiar, of
    escape from Siberia. Despite their superior claim to authenticity
    these tales are without doubt no less fictitious than Mr. Henty's,
    and he beats them hollow in the matter of sensations. The escape
    of the hero and his faithful Tartar from the Samoyedes is quite
    the high-water mark of this author's achievement."--_National
    Observer._

Orange and Green: A Tale of the Boyne and Limerick. By G. A. HENTY.
With 8 full-page Illustrations by GORDON BROWNE. Crown 8vo, cloth
elegant, olivine edges, 5_s._

    "An extremely spirited story, based on the struggle in Ireland,
    rendered memorable by the defence of 'Derry and the siege of
    Limerick."--_Sat. Review._

    "The narrative is free from the vice of prejudice, and ripples
    with life as vivacious as if what is being described were really
    passing before the eye.... Should be in the hands of every young
    student of Irish history."--_Belfast News._

One Of the 28th: A Tale of Waterloo. By G. A. HENTY. With 8 page
Illustrations by W. H. OVEREND, and 2 Maps. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant,
olivine edges, 5_s._

    "Written with Homeric vigour and heroic inspiration. It is
    graphic, picturesque, and dramatically effective ... shows us Mr.
    Henty at his best and brightest. The adventures will hold a boy of
    a winter's night enthralled as he rushes through them with
    breathless interest 'from cover to cover.'"--_Observer._

The Cat Of Bubastes: A Story of Ancient Egypt. By G. A. HENTY. With 8
page Illustrations by J. R. WEGUELIN. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant,
olivine edges, 5_s._

    "The story, from the critical moment of the killing of the sacred
    cat to the perilous exodus into Asia with which it closes, is very
    skilfully constructed and full of exciting adventures. It is
    admirably illustrated."--_Saturday Review._

Maori and Settler: A Story of the New Zealand War. By G. A. HENTY.

    interesting conversation, and of vivid pictures of colonial
    life."--_Schoolmaster._

St. George for England: A Tale of Cressy and Poitiers. By G. A. HENTY.
With 8 full-page Illustrations by GORDON BROWNE. Crown 8vo, cloth
elegant, olivine edges, 5_s._

    "Mr. Henty's historical novels for boys bid fair to supplement, on
    their behalf, the historical labours of Sir Walter Scott in the
    land of fiction."--_Standard._

    "A story of very great interest for boys. In his own forcible
    style the author has endeavoured to show that determination and
    enthusiasm can accomplish marvellous results; and that courage is
    generally accompanied by magnanimity and gentleness."--_Pall
    Mall Gazette._

The Bravest of the Brave: With Peterborough in Spain. By G. A. HENTY.
With 8 full-page Pictures by H. M. PAGET. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant,
olivine edges, 5_s._

    "Mr. Henty never loses sight of the moral purpose of his work--to
    enforce the doctrine of courage and truth, mercy and loving
    kindness, as indispensable to the making of an English gentleman.
    British lads will read _The Bravest of the Brave_ with
    pleasure and profit; of that we are quite sure."--_Daily
    Telegraph._

For Name and Fame: Or, Through Afghan Passes. By G. A. HENTY. With 8
full-page Illustrations by GORDON BROWNE. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant,
olivine edges, 5_s._

    "The best feature of the book, apart from its scenes of adventure,
    is its honest effort to do justice to the patriotism of the Afghan
    people."--_Daily News._

    "Not only a rousing story, replete with all the varied forms of
    excitement of a campaign, but, what is still more useful, an
    account of a territory and its inhabitants which must for a long
    time possess a supreme interest for Englishmen, as being the key
    to our Indian Empire."--_Glasgow Herald._

Held Fast for England: A Tale of the Siege of Gibraltar. By G. A.
HENTY. With 8 page Illustrations by GORDON BROWNE. Crown 8vo, cloth
elegant, olivine edges, 5_s._

    "Among them we would place first in interest and wholesome
    educational value the story of the siege of Gibraltar.... There is
    no cessation of exciting incident throughout the
    story."--_Athenæum._

In the Reign of Terror: The Adventures of a Westminster Boy. By G. A.
HENTY. With 8 full-page Illustrations by J. SCHÖNBERG. Crown 8vo,
cloth elegant, olivine edges, 5_s._

    "Harry Sandwith, the Westminster boy, may fairly be said to beat
    Mr. Henty's record. His adventures will delight boys by the
    audacity and peril they depict. The story is one of Mr. Henty's
    best."--_Saturday Review._

By Sheer Pluck: A Tale of the Ashanti War. By G. A. HENTY. With 8
full-page Pictures by Gordon Browne. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant, olivine

With 8 page Illustrations by C. J. STANILAND, R.I. Crown 8vo, cloth
elegant, olivine edges, 5_s._

    "A story that may justly be styled remarkable. Boys, in reading
    it, will be surprised to find how Alfred persevered, through years
    of bloodshed and times of peace, to rescue his people from the
    thraldom of the Danes. We hope the book will soon be widely known
    in all our schools."--_Schoolmaster._

A Final Reckoning: A Tale of Bush Life in Australia. By G. A. HENTY.
With 8 page Illustrations by W. B. WOLLEN. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant,
olivine edges, 5_s._

    "All boys will read this story with eager and unflagging interest.
    The episodes are in Mr. Henty's very best vein--graphic, exciting,
    realistic; and, as in all Mr. Henty's books, the tendency is to
    the formation of an honourable, manly, and even heroic
    character."--_Birmingham Post._

Facing Death: Or, The Hero of the Vaughan Pit. A Tale of the Coal
Mines. By G. A. HENTY. With 8 page Pictures by GORDON BROWNE. Crown
8vo, cloth elegant, olivine edges, 5_s._

    worth his salt, this is the book we would
    recommend."--_Standard._

    "One of Mr. MacDonald's wonderful and charming
    stories."--_Athenæum._

    "One of the very best books for boys that has been written. It is
    full of material peculiarly well adapted for the young, containing
    in a marked degree, the elements of all that is necessary to make
    up a perfect boys' book."--_Teachers' Aid._

At the Back of the North Wind. By GEORGE MAC DONALD. With 75
Illustrations by ARTHUR HUGHES. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant, olivine
edges, 5_s._

    "In _At the Back of the North Wind_ we stand with one foot in
    fairyland and one on common earth. The story is thoroughly
    original, full of fancy and pathos, and underlaid with earnest but
    not too obtrusive teaching."--_The Times._

Ranald Bannerman's Boyhood. By GEORGE MACDONALD. With 36 Illustrations
by ARTHUR HUGHES. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant, olivine edges, 5_s._

    "The sympathy with boy-nature in _Ranald Bannerman's Boyhood_
    is perfect. It is a beautiful picture of childhood, teaching by
    its impressions and suggestions all noble things."--_British
    Quarterly Review._

The Princess and the Goblin. By GEORGE MACDONALD. With 32 Illustrations.
Crown 8vo, cloth extra, 3_s._ 6_d._

    "Little of what is written for children has the lightness of touch
    and play of fancy which are characteristic of George MacDonald's
    fairy tales. Mr. Arthur Hughes's illustrations are all that
    illustrations should be."--_Manchester Guardian._

The Princess and Curdie. By GEORGE MACDONALD. With 8 page Illustrations.
Crown 8vo, cloth extra, 3_s._ 6_d._

    Upgrown people would do wisely occasionally to lay aside their
    newspapers and magazines to spend an hour with Curdie and the
    Princess."--_Sheffield Independent._

The Clever Miss Follett. By J. K. H. DENNY. With 12 page Illustrations
by GERTRUDE D. HAMMOND. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant, olivine edges, 6_s._

    This is the story of a great fortune, and its attendant train of
    misfortunes. The Folletts are a middle-class family who suddenly
    find themselves in the possession of immense wealth, and the
    interest is obtained by showing what effect this change has upon
    their various characters. With fine subtlety the author depicts
    the schemes, duplicities, worries, and disappointments which
    follow the Folletts in their efforts to scramble into society and
    make aristocratic marriages. Then, in the midst of their plans,
    the wealth is taken from them, and the friendships which they have
    made are shown in their true character. Altogether it is a bright,
    clever, entertaining tale, with a rare distinction in its minute
    portrayal of diverse character.

By ROBERT LEIGHTON. With 8 page Illustrations by FRANK BRANGWYN. Crown
8vo, cloth elegant, olivine edges, 5_s._

    In this story the interest is mainly secured by a description of
    life on the wild North Sea,--the hero being a parson's son who is
    apprenticed on board a Lowestoft fishing lugger. The lad has to
    suffer many buffets from his shipmates, while the storms and
    dangers which he braved on board the "North Star" are set forth
    with minute knowledge and intense power. The wreck of "The Golden
    Fleece" forms the climax to a thrilling series of desperate
    mischances. From this point the narrative deals with a mysterious
    highway robbery and murder; the trial of the accused fisherman;
    his escape, and the mad chase after the criminal out upon the high
    seas. Altogether, this is a wholesome tale with plenty of
    sea-water in it, and a fine run of breezy adventure.

    those rough days, reminding one not seldom of Sir Walter Scott's

    This is a story of the Cornish coast at a time when the press-gang
    brought terror into all its seaports, and smuggling was an
    everyday practice. The heroine of the tale is sister to a young
    fellow who gets into trouble in landing a contraband cargo, and
    shooting the officer in charge of the press-gang. In this
    extremity she stands by her brother bravely, and by means of her
    daring scheme he manages to escape. There is abundance of stirring

Westward With Columbus. By GORDON STABLES, M.D., C.M. With 8 page
Illustrations by ALFRED PEARSE. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant, olivine
edges, 5_s._

    The hero of this story is Columbus himself; and a very
    picturesque, noble, and enchanting hero he makes. His career is
    traced from boyhood onwards, but the narrative deals chiefly with
    the great naval venture which Columbus conducted across the
    Atlantic, and which resulted in the discovery of the American
    continent. There were many dangers which threatened to wreck this
    momentous enterprise, but these were all overcome by this
    indomitable man, and his efforts were at last crowned with
    success. It is a splendid story, possessing all the value of
    truth, with all the charm of the most daring romance.

    "One of the best of a prolific writer's books for boys, being full
    of practical instructions as to keeping pets, from white mice
    upwards, and inculcates in a way which a little recalls Miss
    Edgeworth's 'Frank' the virtue of self-reliance, though the local
    colouring of the home of the Aberdeenshire boy is a good deal more
    picturesque."--_Athenæum._

A Fair Claimant: Being a Story for Girls. By FRANCES ARMSTRONG. With 8
page Illustrations by GERTRUDE D. HAMMOND. Crown 8vo, cloth elegant,
olivine edges, 5_s._

    The heroine of this story is found, when a child, in the attic of
    a lodging-house in Chelsea. Her mother has unaccountably
    disappeared, and her parentage remains a mystery. She is adopted
    by a wealthy lady, and resides abroad until the death of her
    benefactress. Thereafter, Olive Bethune comes to England as a
    governess, and it is then that she begins to learn her own strange
    history. It is a tale of surprising vicissitude, which is slowly
    unravelled with happy skill, but in the end all the wrongs are
    pleasantly righted. The interest of this narrative never for a
    moment flags, because the character of the heroine is as
    fascinating as the mystery of her birth.

The White Conquerors of Mexico: A Tale of Toltec and Aztec. By KIRK
MUNROE. With 8 page Illustrations by W. S. STACEY. Crown 8vo, cloth
elegant, olivine edges, 5_s._

    This story deals with the Conquest of Mexico by Cortes and his
    Spaniards. They are the daring white conquerors who pushed their
    way through countless difficulties into the great Aztec kingdom,
    and established their power in the wondrous city where Montezuma
    reigned in barbaric splendour. This episode is one of the most
    romantic in all history, and the author of this narrative has made
    it newly entrancing by the many cunning effects which he has added
    with consummate dexterity. It were simply vain to single out any
    particular adventure in a narrative which teems with happenings of
    the weirdest kind.

With the Sea Kings: A Story of the Days of Lord Nelson. By F. H.
WINDER. With 6 page Illustrations by W. S. STACEY. Crown 8vo, cloth
elegant, 4_s._

    Philip Trevellon was an English lad who thought to become a Lord
    High Admiral like his hero, Horatio Nelson. By way of achieving
    this purpose he ran away from home and joined a privateer. After
    taking part in the capture of a French frigate, he was captured by
    Corsairs and sold into slavery. He escaped, and his subsequent
    bravery in a sea fight brought him an interview with Lord Nelson,
    and promotion. Having been appointed to the _Victory_ he took
    part in the battle of Trafalgar. This is a real saltwater story,
    set forth in a hearty, handsome, old-fashioned style.

8vo, cloth elegant, 4_s._

    The earlier part of this story deals with the merry escapades of
    Prince Hal and his favourite, Sir John Oldcastle. Then the
    narrative deepens in its interest when the Prince ascends the
    throne as Henry V., while his old comrade becomes a Lollard and a
    champion of the new faith. As such, Sir John Oldcastle endures
    many hardships, and escapes from the Tower, but finally he is
    captured by treachery and burnt at the stake. This historical tale
    is full of the most interesting episodes, while at the same time
    its tone is pure and ennobling.
