"We strongly recommend this 'Story of the Campaign' to all who would
gain a just comprehension of this tremendous struggle. Of this we are
perfectly sure, it is a book unlikely to be ever superseded. Its truth
is of that simple and startling character which is sure of an immortal
existence; nor is it paying the gallant author too high a complement to
class this masterpiece of military history with the most precious of
those classic records which have been bequeathed to us by the great
writers of antiquity who took part in the wars they have
described."--_The Press._

    Impressions of a "Flâneur." Second Edition. In 8vo, price 9s.

"There has not been published for many a day a more remarkable book on
France than this, which professes to be the impressions of a Flaneur....
It has all the liveliness and sparkle of a work written only for
amusement; it has all the solidity and weight of a State paper; and we
expect for it not a little political influence as a fair, full, and
masterly statement of the Imperial policy--the first and only good
account that has been given to Europe of the Napoleonic system now in
force."--_Times._

    Magazine.' Crown 8vo, 6s.

    With Comparative Views of the Laws of France, England, and Scotland.
    By LORD MACKENZIE, one of the Judges of the Court of Session in
    Scotland. 8vo, 12s. Second Edition.

"We know not in the English language where else to look for a history of
the Roman law so clear, and, at the same time, so short.... More
improving reading, both for the general student and for the lawyer, we
cannot well imagine; and there are few, even among learned professional
men, who will not gather some novel information from Lord Mackenzie's
simple pages."--_London Review._

    And English Princesses connected with the Regal Succession of Great
    Britain. By AGNES STRICKLAND. With Portraits and Historical
    Vignettes. Post 8vo, £4, 4s.

"Every step in Scotland is historical: the shades of the dead arise on
every side; the very rocks breathe. Miss Strickland's talents as a
writer, and turn of mind as an individual, in a peculiar manner fit her
for painting a historical gallery of the most illustrious or dignified
female characters in that land of chivalry and song."--_Blackwood's
Magazine._

    including Communications from the Rev. R. H. BARHAM, Author of the
    'Ingoldsby Legends.' In 8vo, with Engravings, 16s.

"'The Boscobel Tracts' is a very curious book, and about as good an
example of single subject historical collections as may be found.
Originally undertaken, or at least completed, at the suggestion of the
late Bishop Copplestone, in 1827, it was carried out with a degree of
judgment and taste not always found in works of a similar
character."--_Spectator._

    DUNDEE--WILLIAM PENN. By John Paget, Esq., Barrister-at-Law. In
    Crown 8vo, 6s.

"We certainly never saw a more damaging exposure, and it is something
worth notice that much of it appeared in 'Blackwood's Magazine' during
the lifetime of Lord Macaulay, but he never attempted to make any reply.
The charges are so direct, and urged in such unmistakable language, that
no writer who valued his character for either accuracy of fact or
fairness in comment would let them remain unanswered if he had any
reason to give."--_Gentleman's Magazine._


 _AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF THE REV. DR CARLYLE_,
    Minister of Inveresk. Containing Memorials of the Men and Events of
    his Time. Edited by JOHN HILL BURTON. In 8vo. Third Edition, with
    Portrait, 14s.

"This book contains by far the most vivid picture of Scottish life and
manners that has been given to the public since the days of Sir Walter
Scott. In bestowing upon it this high praise, we make no exception, not
even in favour of Lord Cockburn's 'Memorials'--the book which resembles
it most, and which ranks next to it in interest."--_Edinburgh Review._

"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."--_Examiner._

"Nothing could be better as to size, type, paper, and general
get-up."--_Athenæum._

 _TOM CRINGLE'S LOG._
    A New Edition. With Illustrations by STANFIELD, WEIR, SKELTON,
    WALKER, &c., Engraved by WHYMPER. Crown 8vo, 6s.

"Everybody who has failed to read 'Tom Cringle's Log' 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 the present issue are excellent."--_Standard._

 _CHRONICLES OF CARLINGFORD: SALEM CHAPEL._
    Second Edition. Complete in 1 vol., price 5s.

"This story, so fresh, so powerfully written, and so tragic, stands out
from among its fellows like a piece of newly-coined gold in a handful of
dim commonplace shillings. Tales of pastoral experience and scenes from
clerical life we have had in plenty, but the sacred things of the
conventicle, the relative position of pastor and flock in a
Nonconforming 'connection,' were but guessed at by the world outside,
and terrible is the revelation."--_Westminster Review._


 _CHRONICLES OF CARLINGFORD: THE RECTOR, AND THE DOCTOR'S FAMILY._
    Post 8vo, price 4s. _THE PERPETUAL CURATE._ Complete in one vol.

    By JOHN HILL BURTON. New Edition. In Crown 8vo, 7s. 6d.

"A book pleasant to look at and pleasant to read--pleasant from its rich
store of anecdote, its geniality, and its humour, even to persons who
care little for the subjects of which it treats, but beyond measure
delightful to those who are in any degree members of the above-mentioned
fraternity."--_Saturday Review._

"We have not been more amused for a long time: and every reader who
takes interest in typography and its consequences will say the same, if
he will begin to read; beginning, he will finish, and be sorry when it
is over."--_Athenæum._

"Mr Burton has now given us a pleasant book, full of quaint anecdote,
and of a lively bookish talk. There is a quiet humour in it which is
very taking, and there is a curious knowledge of books which is really
very sound."--_Examiner._

    Rhetoric and English Literature in the University of Edinburgh.
    Eighteenth Edition. Fcap. 8vo, 7s. 6d.

"Professor Aytoun's 'Lays of the Scottish Cavaliers'--a volume of verse
which shows that Scotland has yet a poet. Full of the true fire, it now
stirs and swells like a trumpet-note--now sinks in cadences sad and wild
as the wail of a Highland dirge."--_Quarterly Review._


 _BOTHWELL: A POEM._
    By W. EDMONDSTOUNE AYTOUN, D.C.L. Third Edition. Fcap. 8vo, 7s. 6d.

Professor Aytoun. He has sent forth two beautiful volumes which range
with 'Percy's Reliques'--which, for completeness and accuracy, leave
little to be desired--which must henceforth be considered as the
standard edition of the Scottish Ballads, and which we commend as a
model to any among ourselves who may think of doing like service to the
English Ballads."--_Times._

    STANHOPE WORSLEY, M.A., Scholar of Corpus Christi College. 2 vols.
    Crown 8vo, 18s.

"Mr Worsley,--applying the Spenserian stanza, that beautiful romantic
measure, to the most romantic poem of the ancient world--making the
stanza yield him, too (what it never yielded to Byron), its treasures of
fluidity and sweet ease--above all, bringing to his task a truly
poetical sense and skill,--has produced a version of the 'Odyssey' much
the most pleasing of those hitherto produced, and which is delightful to
read."--_Professor Arnold on Translating Homer._

compared to it. In the present instance the artistic talents of Messrs
FOSTER, CLAYTON, TENNIEL, EVANS, DALZIEL, GREEN, and WOODS, have been
employed in giving expression to the sublimity of the language, by
equally exquisite illustrations, all of which are of the highest
class."--_Bell's Messenger._

manual that we are aware of have the facts and phenomena of biology been
presented in at once so systematic and succinct a form, the successive

traced so vividly from the earliest organisms deep-buried in its

surface."--_Literary Gazette._

in the Royal Atlas, than which it is impossible to conceive anything
more perfect."--_Monday Herald._

    'Religion in Common Life,' preached in Crathie Church, Oct. 1855,
    before Her Majesty the Queen and the late Prince Consort.

"They are noble sermons; and we are not sure but that, with the
cultivated reader, they will gain rather than lose by being read, not
heard. There is a thoughtfulness and depth about them which can hardly
be appreciated, unless when they are studied at leisure; and there are
so many sentences so felicitously expressed that we should grudge being
hurried away from them by a rapid speaker, without being allowed to
enjoy them a second time."--_Fraser's Magazine._

    Political Economy, St Andrews. Second Edition. Crown 8vo, 10s. 6d.

"We have no doubt, however, that the subtlety and depth of metaphysical
genius which his work betrays, its rare display of rigorous and
consistent reasonings, and the inimitable precision and beauty of its
style on almost every page, must secure for it a distinguished place in
the history of philosophical discussion."--_Tulloch's Burnett Prize
Treatise._

"The subjects treated of, and the style--always chaste and beautiful,

written.... It deals with many of those higher forms of speculation

his wisdom, nor the general playfulness of his O'Dowderies allow us to
forget the ample evidence that underneath them lurks one of the most
earnest and observant spirits of the present time."--_Daily Review._

"In truth one of the most delightful volumes of personal reminiscence it
has ever been our fortune to peruse."--_Globe._

    BURTON. To be completed in 6 vols. demy 8vo. Vols. I. to IV., price
    56s.

"The best account that has yet been written of the national life and
being of Scotland."--_Times._

"One of the completest histories that we ever saw of any
country."--_Saturday Review._

"Not only the most complete and trustworthy history of Scotland yet
written, but it will merit a high place among the historical works of
our age."--_Daily News._

"A great contribution to historical literature."--_Scotsman._

"We do not remember to have read so reticent, so calm and dispassionate
a history."--_Blackwood's Magazine._

"Une grande et belle histoire."--_Revue des Deux Mondes._

"This admirable book."--_Morning Herald._


 =COUNT MONTALEMBERT'S HISTORY OF THE MONKS=
    OF THE WEST. 5 vols. 8vo, £2, 12s. 6d. The volumes just published
    (III. to V.), contain the History of the Conversion of England by
    the Monks, and may be had as a complete book, price 31s. 6d.

"On the whole, the intellectual interest of the Count's 'Monks of the
West' rests mainly on this, that it is the work of a brilliant and
accomplished layman and man of the world, dealing with a class of
characters who have generally been left to the arid professional
handling of ecclesiastical writers. Montalembert sees their life as a
whole, and a human whole; and, with all his zeal as an amateur
hagiographer, he cannot but view them with some of the independence of a
mind trained to letters and politics."--_Pall Mall Gazette._


 =THE HANDY ROYAL ATLAS.=
    By ALEX. KEITH JOHNSTON, LL.D. &c., Author of the 'Royal Atlas,' the
    'Physical Atlas,' &c. 45 Maps, clearly printed and carefully

    half-bound morocco.

"Is probably the best work of the kind now published."--_Times._

"Not only are the present territorial adjustments duly registered in all
these maps, but the latest discoveries in Central Asia, in Africa, and
America have been delineated with laborious fidelity. Indeed the ample
illustration of recent discovery, and of the great groups of
dependencies on the British Crown, renders Dr Johnston's the best of all
Atlases for English use."--_Pall Mall Gazette._

"He has given us in a portable form geography posted to the last
discovery and the last Revolution."--_Saturday Review._

"This is Mr Keith Johnston's admirable Royal Atlas diminished in bulk
and scale so as to be perhaps, fairly entitled to the name of 'handy,'
but still not so much diminished but what it constitutes an accurate and
useful general Atlas for ordinary households."--_Spectator._

"The 'Handy Atlas' is thoroughly deserving of its name. Not only does it
contain the latest information, but its size and arrangement render it
perfect as a book of reference."--_Standard._


 =THE HANDY HORSE-BOOK=;
    OR, PRACTICAL INSTRUCTIONS IN RIDING, DRIVING, AND THE GENERAL CARE
    AND MANAGEMENT OF HORSES. By a CAVALRY OFFICER. A New Edition, with

what he has learned practically."--_Sporting Gazette._

 =HANDY BOOK OF METEOROLOGY.=
    By ALEXANDER BUCHAN, Secretary of the Scottish Meteorological

more and later information than exists in any volume with which we are
acquainted."--_Symon's Meteorological Magazine._


 =GEOLOGY FOR GENERAL READERS.=
    A SERIES OF POPULAR SKETCHES IN GEOLOGY AND PALÆONTOLOGY. By DAVID
    PAGE, LL.D. F.R.S.E. F.G.S. Second Edition, containing several New
    Chapters. Price 6s.

"Few of our handbooks of popular science can be said to have greater or
more decisive merit than those of Mr Page on Geology and Palæontology.
They are clear and vigorous in style, they never oppress the reader with
a pedantic display of learning, nor overwhelm him with a pompous and
superfluous terminology; and they have the happy art of taking him
straightway to the face of nature herself, instead of leading him by the
tortuous and bewildering paths of technical system and artificial
classification."--_Saturday Review._

"This is one of the best of Mr Page's many good books. It is written in
a flowing popular style. Without illustration or any extraneous aid, the
narrative must prove attractive to any intelligent reader."--_Geological
Magazine._

    With Portrait. Post 8vo, 12s.

after much that has been done of late years in a similar line. Good
taste, right feeling, and a generous but seldom excessive appreciation
of the subject, mark the work."--_Manchester Guardian._

    Edited by SIR ALEX. GRANT and PROFESSOR LUSHINGTON. 2 vols. post

"These lectures, in so far as they treat of Greek philosophy down to
Plato, have been carefully elaborated, and are of much value--of higher
value, indeed, than any writings on the same subject in the English
language; and in point of clearness, depth, and resolute search after
truth, and tenacious hold of it when found, we doubt if they are
surpassed in any language.... For our part, we do not know any
philosophical writings so fascinating to a young student of philosophy
as these early pages."--_Scotsman._

Doctrine Publishing Corporation provides digitized public domain materials.
Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians.
This effort is time consuming and expensive, so in order to keep providing
this resource, we have taken steps to prevent abuse by commercial parties,
including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Doctrine Publishing
Corporation's ISYS search for use by individuals, and we request that you
use these files for personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort
to Doctrine Publishing's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a
large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the use of
public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Keep it legal -  Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for
ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just because
we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States,
that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we
can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of any specific book is
allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Doctrine Publishing
ISYS search  means it can be used in any manner anywhere in the world.
Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.
