_ON BOOKS AND BOOK-BUYERS._

By JOHN RUSKIN, LL.D.

“_I say we have despised literature; what do we, as a nation, care about
books? How much do you think we spend altogether on our libraries,
public or private, as compared with what we spend on our horses? If a
man spends lavishly on his library, you call him mad--a bibliomaniac.
But you never call one a horse-maniac, though men ruin themselves every
day by their horses, and you do not hear of people ruining themselves by
their books. Or, to go lower still, how much do you think the contents
of the book-shelves of the United Kingdom, public and private, would
fetch, as compared with the contents of its wine-cellars? What position
would its expenditure on literature take as compared with its
expenditure on luxurious eating? We talk of food for the mind, as of
food for the body: now, a good book contains such food inexhaustible: it
is provision for life, and for the best part of us; yet how long most
people would look at the best book before they would give the price of a
large turbot for it! Though there have been men who have pinched their
stomachs and bared their backs to buy a book, whose libraries were
cheaper to them, I think, in the end, than most men’s dinners are. We
are few of us put to such a trial, and more the pity; for, indeed, a
precious thing is all the more precious to us if it has been won by work
or economy; and if public libraries were half as costly as public
dinners, or books cost the tenth part of what bracelets do, even foolish
men and women might sometimes suspect there was good in reading as well
as in munching and sparkling; whereas the very cheapness of literature
is making even wiser people forget that if a book is worth reading it is
worth buying._”--SESAME AND LILIES; OR, KING’S TREASURES.

their false hair, high heels, tight corsets, and ever so much else of
the same sort._”--NONCONFORMIST.

“_Our Bank of Elegance notes are not in high credit. But our Bank of
Arts notes ought to be, when the bank is_ HENRY BLACKBURN’S & CO., _and
the notes are his Grosvenor Gallery Notes, and his Academy Notes for
1878. Never were more unmistakable cases of “value received,” than
theirs who purchase these two wonderful shillingsworths--the best aids
to memory, for the collections they relate to, that have ever been
produced. The Illustrations, excellent records of the pictures, in many
cases from sketches by the painters, are full of spirit, and, for their
scale, wonderfully effective; the remarks terse, and to the point. After
Punch’s Own Guide to the Academy, and the Grosvenor, the best, he has no
hesitation in saying, are Mr. Blackburn’s._”--PUNCH, June 7, 1878.

_Belgravia Magazine._

_That the purpose with which “BELGRAVIA” was originated has been
fulfilled, is shown by the popularity that has attended it since its
first appearance. Aiming, as may be inferred from its name, at supplying
the most refined and cultivated section of London society with
intellectual pabulum suited to its requirements, it sprang at once into
public favour, and has since remained one of the most extensively read
and widely circulated of periodicals. In passing into new hands it has
experienced no structural change or modification. Increased energy and
increased capital have been employed in elevating it to the highest
standard of excellence, but all the features that had won public
appreciation have been retained, and the Magazine still seeks its
principal support in the homes of Belgravia. As the means through which
the writer most readily reaches the heart of the general public, and in
consequence as the most important of aids in the establishment of morals
and the formation of character, fiction still remains a principal
feature in the Magazine. Two Serial Stories accordingly run through its
pages; supplemented by short Stories, Novelettes, and narrative or
dramatic Sketches: whilst Essays, Social, Biographical, and Humorous;
Scientific Discoveries brought to the level of popular comprehension,
and treated with a light touch; Poetry, of the highest character; and
records of Adventure and Travel, form the remaining portion of the
contents. Especial care is now bestowed upon the illustrations, of which
no fewer than four appear in each number. Beyond the design of
illustrating the article they accompany, these aim at maintaining a
position as works of art, both as regards drawing and engraving. In
short, whatever claims the Magazine before possessed to favour have now
been enhanced, and the Publishers can but leave the result to a public
that has seldom failed to appreciate all earnest, persistent, and
well-directed efforts for its amusement and benefit._

⁂ _The THIRTY-FIFTH Volume of BELGRAVIA, elegantly bound in crimson
cloth, full gilt side and back, gilt edges, price_ 7_s._ 6_d._, _is now
ready.--Handsome Cases for binding the volume can be had at 2s. each._

    Portrait of the Author, and 50 Illustrations.

“_Not many months before my friend’s death, he had sent me two sketches
of a young American writer (Bret Harte), far away in California (‘The
Outcasts of Poker Flat,’ and another), in which he had found such subtle
strokes of character as he had not anywhere else in late years
discovered; the manner resembling himself, but the matter fresh to a
degree that had surprised him; the painting in all respects masterly,
and the wild rude thing painted a quite wonderful reality. I have rarely
known him more honestly moved._”--FORSTER’S LIFE OF DICKENS.

as a composition, it deserves to be classed among the best specimens of
English prose which our age has produced.... The style is agreeable,
clear, and manly, and when it rises into eloquence, rises without effort

work.... In many cases well-executed plans of actions are
given._”--MORNING POST.

    By JOHN E. CUSSANS. Illustrated with full-page Plates on Copper
    and Stone, and a profusion of small Woodcuts.

“_Mr. Cussans has, from sources not accessible to Clutterbuck, made most
valuable additions to the manorial history of the county from the
earliest period downwards, cleared up many doubtful points, and given
original details concerning various subjects untouched or imperfectly

volumes worthy of ranking in the highest class of County
Histories._”--ACADEMY.

“_The illustrations of this volume ... are of quite sterling and
admirable art, of a class precisely parallel in elevation to the
character of the tales which they illustrate; and the original etchings,
as I have before said in the Appendix to my ‘Elements of Drawing,’ were
unrivalled in masterfulness of touch since Rembrandt (in some qualities
of delineation, unrivalled even by him).... To make somewhat enlarged
copies of them, looking at them through a magnifying glass, and never
putting two lines where Cruikshank has put only one, would be an
exercise in decision and severe drawing which would leave afterwards
little to be learnt in schools._”--_Extract from Introduction by_ JOHN

One Shilling Monthly, Illustrated by ARTHUR HOPKINS.

_The Gentleman’s Magazine._

    Edited by SYLVANUS URBAN, Gentleman.

_In seeking to restore the “GENTLEMAN’S MAGAZINE” to the position it
formerly held, the Publishers do not lose sight of the changed
conditions under which it now appears. While maintaining an historical
continuity which dates back to the reign of George the Second, there
will be no attempt to burden the present with the weight of a distant
past, or to adhere slavishly to traditions the application of which is
unsuited to the altered conditions of society at the present time. It is
sought to render the Magazine to the gentleman of to-day what in earlier
times it proved to the gentleman of a past generation. New features will
be introduced to take the place of those which disappear; in the most
important respects, however, the connecting links between the present
and the past will be closest. Biography and History, which have always
formed a conspicuous portion of the contents, will retain the prominence
assigned them, and will be treated with the added breadth that springs
from increased familiarity with authorities and more exact appreciation
of the province of the Biographer and the Historian. Science, which
confers upon the age special eminence, will have its latest conclusions
and forecasts presented in a manner which shall bring them within the
grasp of the general reader. The philosophical aspect of Politics, the
matters which affect Imperial interests, will be separated from the
rivalries of party, and will receive a due share of attention.
Archæology (under which comprehensive head may be included Genealogy,
Topography, and other similar matters), Natural History, Sport and
Adventure, Poetry, Belles Lettres, Art in all its manifestations, will
constitute a portion of the contents; and Essays upon social subjects
will, as heretofore, be interspersed. Under the head of Table Talk
matters of current interest will be discussed, and facts of historic
value will be preserved. A Work of Fiction by some novelist of highest
position will run through the pages of the Magazine, and will be
illustrated by artists of known excellence. With a full sense of what is
involved in their promise, and with a firm resolution to abide by their
pledges, the Publishers undertake to spare no exertion that is necessary
to secure the highest class of contributions, to place the Magazine in
the first rank of serials, and to fit it to take its place on the table
and on the shelves of all classes of cultivated Englishmen._

consult it.... Far from being the impassioned utterance of an advocate,
it is, on the contrary, a calm authoritative statement of facts, and the
expression of the views of the workmen and their leaders.... The book is
a storehouse of facts, some of them extremely well arranged.... His book
is of profound interest. We have no hesitation in giving it our hearty
praise._”--ECHO.

    and Edited by HENRY S. LEIGH.

“_This thoroughly congenial piece of work ... Mr. Leigh’s claim to

judgment; he has restored many stolen or strayed bons-mots to their
rightful owners; and he has exercised his editorial functions delicately

_Kavanaghs’ Pearl Fountain_,

    And other Fairy Stories. By BRIDGET and JULIA KAVANAGH. With
    Thirty Illustrations by J. MOYR SMITH.

“_Genuine new fairy stories of the old type, some of them as delightful
as the best of Grimm’s ‘German Popular Stories.’... For the most part,
the stories are downright, thorough-going fairy stories of the most
admirable kind.... Mr. Moyr Smith’s illustrations, too, are admirable.
Look at that white rabbit. Anyone would see at the first glance that he
is a rabbit with a mind, and a very uncommon mind too--that he is a
fairy rabbit, and that he is posing as chief adviser to some
one--without reading even a word of the story. Again, notice the
fairy-like effect of the little picture of the fairy-bird
‘Don’t-forget-me,’ flying away back into fairy-land. A more perfectly
dream-like impression of fairy-land has hardly been given in any
illustration of fairy tales within our knowledge._”--SPECTATOR.

“_After wading through numberless volumes of icy fiction, concocted

modern work in which states of thought are so freely developed, except
the ‘Torquato Tasso’ of Goethe. The play is a work of art in the same
sense that a play of Sophocles is a work of art; it is one simple idea
in a state of gradual development.... ‘The Favourite of Fortune’ is one
of the most important additions to the stock of English prose comedy
that has been made during the present century._”--TIMES.

_The New Republic_;

    or, Culture, Faith, and Philosophy in an English Country House.
    By W. H. MALLOCK.

“_The great charm of the book lies in the clever and artistic way the
dialogue is managed, and the diverse and various expedients by which,
whilst the love of thought on every page is kept at a high pitch, it
never loses its realistic aspect.... It is giving high praise to a work
of this sort to say that it absolutely needs to be taken as a whole, and
that disjointed extracts here and there would entirely fail to convey
any idea of the artistic unity, the careful and conscientious sequence
of what is evidently the brilliant outcome of much patient thought and
study.... Enough has now been said to recommend these volumes to any
reader who desires something above the usual novel, something which will
open up lanes of thought in his own mind, and insensibly introduce a
higher standard into his daily life.... Here is novelty indeed, as well
as originality, and to anyone who can appreciate or understand ‘The New
Republic’ it cannot fail to be a rare treat._”--OBSERVER.

    from the Memoirs of Lord Byron. Chiefly from the Author’s MSS.,
    and all hitherto Inedited and Uncollected. Edited, with Notes,
    by RICHARD HERNE SHEPHERD.

“_Hitherto Thomas Moore has been mostly regarded as one of the lighter
writers merely--a sentimental poet_ par excellence, _in whom the
‘rapture of love and of wine’ determined him strictly to certain modes
of sympathy and of utterance, and these to a large extent of a slightly
artificial character. This volume will serve to show him in other, and
certainly as attractive, aspects, while, at the same time, enabling us
to a considerable extent to see how faithfully he developed himself on
the poetical or fanciful side.... This is a book which claims, as it
ought to obtain, various classes of readers, and we trust that the very
mixed elements of interest in it may not conflict with its obtaining
them. For the lightest reader there is much to enjoy; for the most
thoughtful something to ponder over; and the thanks of both are due to
editor and publisher alike_.”--NONCONFORMIST.

“_Mr. Trollope has a true artist’s idea of tone, of colour, of harmony:
his pictures are one, and seldom out of drawing; he never strains after
effect, is fidelity itself in expressing English life, is never guilty
of caricature._”--FORTNIGHTLY REVIEW.


_Diamond Cut Diamond._        By T. A. TROLLOPE.

“_Full of life, of interest, of close observation, and sympathy.... When

_The Lion in the Path._       By JOHN SAUNDERS.

“_A carefully written and beautiful story--a story of goodness and
truth, which is yet as interesting as though it dealt with the opposite
qualities.... The author of this really clever story has been at great
pains to work out all its details with elaborate conscientiousness, and
the result is a very vivid picture of the ways of life and habits of
thought of a hundred and fifty years ago.... Certainly a very
interesting book._”--TIMES.

_NEW NOVEL BY JUSTIN McCARTHY._

_Miss Misanthrope_.

    By JUSTIN MCCARTHY, Author of “Dear Lady Disdain,” &c. With 12
    Illustrations by ARTHUR HOPKINS.

“_In ‘Miss Misanthrope’ Mr. McCarthy has added a new and delightful
portrait to his gallery of Englishwomen.... It is a novel which may be
sipped like choice wine; it is one to linger over and ponder; to be
enjoyed like fine, sweet air, or good company, for it is pervaded by a
perfume of honesty and humour, of high feeling, of kindly penetrating
humour, of good sense, and wide knowledge of the world, of a mind richly
cultivated and amply stored. There is scarcely a page in these volumes
in which we do not find some fine remark or felicitous reflection of
piercing, yet gentle and indulgent irony._”--DAILY NEWS.

original author seems to be rather ashamed of the technical aspect of
his profession, and is commendably reticent as to its details, but
because it contains a lucid account of the most notable causes célèbres
from the time of Louis XIV. to a period within the memory of persons
still living.... Can scarcely fail to be extremely
entertaining._”--DAILY TELEGRAPH.

“_To Messrs. Chatto and Windus belongs the merit of having done more to
facilitate the critical study of the text of our great dramatist than
all the Shakespeare clubs and societies put together. A complete
facsimile of the celebrated First Folio edition of 1623 for
half-a-guinea is at once a miracle of cheapness and enterprise. Being in
a reduced form, the type is necessarily rather diminutive, but it is as
distinct as in a genuine copy of the original, and will be found to be
as useful and far more handy to the student than the
latter._”--ATHENÆUM.

_Swift’s Choice Works_,

    in Prose and Verse. With Memoir, Portrait, and Facsimiles of the
    Maps in the Original Edition of “Gulliver’s Travels.”

“_The ‘Tale of a Tub’ is, in my apprehension, the masterpiece of Swift;
certainly Rabelais has nothing superior, even in invention, nor anything
so condensed, so pointed, so full of real meaning, of biting satire, of
felicitous analogy. The ‘Battle of the Books’ is such an improvement on
the similar combat in the Lutrin, that we can hardly own it as an
imitation._”--HALLAM.

“_If he had never written either the ‘Tale of a Tub’ or ‘Gulliver’s
Travels,’ his name merely as a poet would have come down to us, and have
gone down to posterity, with well-earned honours._”--HAZLITT.

_Thackerayana_:

    Notes and Anecdotes: Illustrated by a profusion of Sketches by
    WILLIAM MAKEPEACE THACKERAY, depicting Humorous Incidents in his
    School-life, and Favourite Characters in the books of his
    everyday reading. With Hundreds of Wood Engravings and Five
    Coloured Plates, from Mr. Thackeray’s Original Drawings.

“_It would have been a real loss to bibliographical literature had
copyright difficulties deprived the general public of this very amusing
collection. One of Thackeray’s habits, from his schoolboy days, was to
ornament the margins and blank pages of the books he had in use with
caricature illustrations of their contents. This gave special value to
the sale of his library, and is almost cause for regret that it could
not have been preserved in its integrity. Thackeray’s place in
literature is eminent enough to have made this an interest to future
generations. The anonymous editor has done the best that he could to
compensate for the lack of this. It is an admirable addendum, not only
to his collected works, but also to any memoir of him that has been, or
that is likely to be, written._”--BRITISH QUARTERLY REVIEW.

_Cyril Tourneur’s Collected Works_,

    Plays and Poems. Edited, with Critical Introduction and Notes,
    by J. CHURTON COLLINS.

“_Tourneur’s plays are an essential part of the literary history of his
period. For this reason chiefly they deserve Mr. Collins’s careful
editing. His notes are brief and to the point; his illustrations, drawn
from a store of curious and recondite learning, are apt and pregnant....
The book, which is prettily printed, is one which the student of
Elizabethan literature cannot dispense with._”--SATURDAY REVIEW.

_Thoreau: His Life and Aims._

    A Study. By H. A. PAGE, Author of “The Life of Thomas De
    Quincey,” &c.

“_Mr. Page has done a good deed in making the ‘Poet Naturalist’ known to
English readers. Thoreau’s story is one of the most attractive stories
of our time, and we have to thank Mr. Page for reproducing it for us.
The ‘New England Hermit’ ought, one would think, to be almost as great a
favourite with English boys of this generation as ‘Robinson Crusoe.’ Mr.
Page’s study has, besides other merits, that of brevity, so rare in
these days; and we rose from the book with a strong desire for more, a
feeling that we had only had half a meal._”--SPECTATOR.
