     PEACOCK. 6_s._

historical tales."--_Saturday Review._

     Fire. By G. A. HENTY. With 12 page Illustrations by
     J. FINNEMORE. 6_s._

"No boy needs to have any story of Henty's recommended to him, and
parents who do not know and buy him for their boys should be ashamed
of themselves. Those to whom he is yet unknown could not make a better
beginning than with _When London Burned_."--_British Weekly._


"Among writers of stories of adventure for boys Mr. Henty stands in the
very first rank."--_Academy._

"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

     G. A. HENTY. Illustrated with 12 page Pictures by
     GORDON BROWNE. 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._

endeared to us by the exploits of Hawkeye and Chingachgook."--_The

"Mr. Henty undoubtedly possesses the secret of writing eminently
successful historical tales; and those older than the lads whom
the author addresses in his preface may read the story with

     =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. 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,

whose disciplined bands formed really the germ of the modern British

     G. A. HENTY. With 12 page Illustrations by C. J.
     STANILAND, R.I. 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._

     =Redskin and Cow-boy:= A Tale of the Western Plains. By G. A.
     HENTY. Illustrated by ALFRED PEARSE. 6_s._

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 ranch are
most graphically painted, as are the manners of the reckless but jovial

     =With Clive in India:= or, The Beginnings of an Empire. By G.
     A. HENTY. Illustrated by GORDON BROWNE. 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._

     =In Greek Waters:= A Story of the Grecian War of Independence
     (1821-1827). By G. A. HENTY. With 12 page Illustrations
     by W. S. STACEY, and a Map. 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._

     =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. 6_s._

incidents which fall to be recorded after the dash for Khartoum has
been made and failed are quite as interesting as those which precede

Mr. Henty has produced, and deserves to be classed with his _Facing

     By G. A. HENTY. Illustrated by H. M. PAGET. 6_s._

     =St. Bartholomew's Eve:= A Tale of the Huguenot Wars. By G. A.
     HENTY. Illustrated by H. J. DRAPER. 6_s._

"What would boys do without Mr. Henty? Ever fresh and vigorous, his
books have at once the solidity of history and the charm of romance.
_St. Bartholomew's Eve_ is in his best style, and the interest never
flags. The book is all that could possibly be wished from a boy's point
of view."--_Journal of Education._

     =In Freedom's Cause:= A Story of Wallace and Bruce. By G. A.
     HENTY. Illustrated by GORDON BROWNE. 6_s._

     =Beric the Briton:= A Story of the Roman Invasion. By G. A.
     HENTY. Illustrated by W. PARKINSON. 6_s._

"We are not aware that anyone 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 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. 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._

[Illustration: _Reduced Illustration from "At Agincourt"._]

     =Wulf the Saxon:= A Story of the Norman Conquest. By G. A.
     HENTY. Illustrated by RALPH PEACOCK. 6_s._

"_Wulf the Saxon_ is second to none of Mr. Henty's historical tales,
and we may safely say that a boy may learn from it more genuine
history than he will from many a tedious tome. The points of the Saxon
character are hit off very happily, and the life of the period is ably
reconstructed."--_The Spectator._

     HURST, and a Map. 6_s._

"The picture of the Punjaub during its last few years of independence,
the description of the battles on the Sutlej, and the portraiture
generally of native character, seem admirably true.... On the whole,
we have never read a more vivid and faithful narrative of military
adventure in India."--_The Academy._

stories."--_Daily Chronicle._

     BROWNE, and 6 Maps. 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

after the very heart of Stonewall Jackson."--_Times._

     =Under Drake's Flag:= A Tale of the Spanish Main. By G. A.
     HENTY. Illustrated by GORDON BROWNE. 6_s._

the author has so carefully worked up his subject that the exciting
deeds of his heroes are never incongruous or absurd."--_Observer._

     OVEREND, and a Map. 5_s._

altogether a fine character such as boys will delight in, whilst the
story of the campaign is very graphically told.... Will, we think,
prove one of the most popular boys' books this season."--_St. James's

     =In the Heart of the Rockies:= A Story of Adventure in Colorado.

     With 8 page Illustrations by W. H. OVEREND, and 2 Maps.

"Written with Homeric vigour and heroic inspiration. It is graphic,

enthralled as he rushes through them with breathless interest 'from
cover to cover'."--_Observer._

     Coal Mines. By G. A. HENTY. With 8 page Pictures by

     A. HENTY. Illustrated by GORDON BROWNE. 5_s._

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. Illustrated by GORDON BROWNE. 5_s._

"Not only a rousing story, replete with all the varied forms of

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._

_In crown 8vo, cloth elegant._

     =Condemned as a Nihilist:= A Story of Escape from Siberia. By
     G. A. HENTY. Illustrated by WALTER PAGET. 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."--_National Observer._

     =Orange and Green:= A Tale of the Boyne and Limerick. By G. A.
     HENTY. Illustrated by GORDON BROWNE. 5_s._

"The narrative is free from the vice of prejudice, and ripples with

     G. A. HENTY. Illustrated by J. SCHÖNBERG. 5_s._

gentleman."--_Christian Leader._

     A. HENTY. With 8 page Illustrations by C. J. STANILAND,
     R.I. 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

     A. HENTY. Illustrated by W. B. WOLLEN. 5_s._

"All boys will read this story with eager and unflagging interest.

to the formation of an honourable, manly, and even heroic
character."--_Birmingham Post._

facts quicken the imagination. No boy can read this book without

their chapter of adventures is so brisk and entertaining we could have
wished it longer than it is."--_Saturday Review._

     =Through Swamp and Glade:= A Tale of the Seminole War. By KIRK
     MUNROE. Illustrated by VICTOR PERARD. 5_s._

"The hero of _Through Swamp and Glade_ will find many ardent champions,
and the name of Coachoochie become as familiar in the schoolboy's ear
as that of the headmaster."--_St. James's Gazette._

     =At War With Pontiac:= or, The Totem of the Bear. By KIRK
     MUNROE. Illustrated by J. FINNEMORE. 5_s._

"Is in the best manner of Cooper. There is a character who is the
parallel of Hawkeye, as the Chingachgooks and Uncas have likewise their
counterparts."--_The Times._

     =The White Conquerors of Mexico:= A Tale of Toltec and Aztec. By
     KIRK MUNROE. Illustrated by W. S. STACEY. 5_s._

and market-places of the magnificent capital of Montezuma."--_The

work."--_Review of Reviews._

     =The Heiress of Courtleroy.= By ANNE BEALE. With 8 page
     Illustrations by T. C. H. CASTLE. 5_s._

     DOUDNEY. Illustrated by G. G. KILBURNE. 4_s._

resource, and teaches a boy to keep his eyes open."--_Saturday Review._

     =Bunyip Land:= The Story of a Wild Journey in New Guinea. By G.
