CRITICAL NOTICES.

[ocr errors]

"A splendid work, full of noble eloquence; of vivid portraiture: of accurate learning; a work which no student of history can afford to neglect, and no reader will be withoui, who has taste enough to enjoy a good book.”- London Daily News.

“A work which will live and be popular with the masses for many years."-New York Herald,

"It is minute, laborious, and exact; it is also vivid, earvest, and singularly eloquent and interesting, and it has commanded the consideration of all scholars."-Philadelphia Daily Age.

“The value of Froude's great work, and the pleasing character of the author's style, its grace, its life, its simple strength, its lucidity, and its picturesqueness, that make his learned pages as entertaining as those of a novel-are well known to the reading public, and need not be enlarged upon here."--Newark Daily Advertiser.

"No one with any pretensions as a student of history, or of ancient literature, can afford to let this history pass unread."- New York Evening Mail.

"One of those rare books that no intelligent man or woman who wishes to keep up with the literary progress of the age can afford to neglect

, and it is just for this reason that the public owe a debt of gratitude to the publishers, for placing it in everybody's reach."--New York Evening Post.

“The history throws new light on the reigns of the Tudor monarchs; and is deeply interesting for the vivacity of its style, and the niinuteness of its details.” -- Cincinnati Gazette.

“The history is one which will be valued more and more as time goes on.”—Hartford Daily Times. "Of the merits of this work, the fascinating style of the narrative, and the extensive research of the author, we have already spoken."- New York Evangelist.

"Since Macaulay, no man has written English History so attractively as Froude."--Philadelphia Presbyterian.

“No intelligent person needs to be told that a set of this history is essential to the shelves of any library, public or private, making ihe slightest pretensions to tolerable

completeness."— Boston Congregationalist. "A masterly narrative, fascinating as a romance, but giving proof of immense labor of investigation." -New York Examiner and Chronick.

“The work is most valuable. Al libraries of any pretension whatever will contain it. The popular edition, just com. pleted, contains all the matter of the larger library siyle, and is by its remarkable cheapness just the thing for a wide and general ownership by the reading community."-S. S. Times.

. The publishers have made a direct contribution to the wealth of American thought by the republication of a work which made its author a prince among English historians. "-Northwestern Christian Advocate.

Mr. Froude has prosecuted his work with great industry, availing himself faithfully of all the materials within his reach, and using them, in the main, with judgment and discrimination. He possesses, moreover, the faculty of making his description attractive. His pages have a glow and vivacity which fasten the reader's attention upon them, and reward this attention by the pleasure which they impart."-Chicago Interior.

" Whatever opinion may be entertained of the impartiality of the author, every reader must be charmed with the beauty of his style and his telling descriptions of the exciting events recorded in his pages.

"Scottish American Journal. "The author has displayed great research, and the power of putting new life into the musty records he has unearthedof weaving the whole tangled skein into a vivacious and attractive narrative." - Portland Transcript.

"The paper is good and the type clear, and the public may well be congratulated on having so important a work brought within the reach of a large proportion of appreciative readers."--Congregational Quarterly.

ANOTHER GREAT HISTORICAL WORK,

.

Che History of Grrrrr,

By Prof. Dr. ERNST CURTIUS. TRANSLATED BY ADOLPHUS WILLIAM WARD, M.A., FELLOW OF St. Peter's COLLEGE,

CAMBRIDGE, PROFESSOR OF HISTORY IN OWEN'S COLLEGE, MANCHESTER. To be completed in five volumes crown 8vo., at $2.50 per volume. PRINTED UPON TINTED PAPER, UNIFORM WITH MOMMSEN'S HISTORY OF ROME AND

THE LIBRARY EDITION OF FROUDE'S HISTORY OF ENGLAND.

Volume I. will be published February 25. Curtius's History of Greece is similar in plan and purpose to Mommsen's History of Rome, with which it deserves to rank in every respect as one of the great masterpieces of historical literature. Avoiding the minute details which overburden other similar works, it groups together in a very pic. turesque manner all the important events in the history of this kingdom, which has exercised such a wonderful influence upon the world's civilization. The narrative of Prof. Curtius's work is flowing and animated, and the generalizations, although bold, are philosophical and sound.

CRITICAL NOTICES. " Professor Curtius's eminent scholarship is a sufficient guarantee for the trustworthiness of his history, while the skill with which he groups his facts and his effective mode of narrating them, combine to render it no less readable than sound. Professor Curtius everywhere maintains the true dignity and impartiality of history, and it is evident his sympathies are on the side of justice, humanity, and progress.”- Atheneum.

“We cannot express our opinion of Dr. Curtius's book better than by saying that it may be fitly ranked with Theodor Mommsen's great work."--Spectator.

Will also be published February 25,
THE THIRD AND CONCLUDING VOLUME OF

Chips from a German Workshop.

Vol. III.-ESSAYS ON LITERATURE, BIOGRAPHY, AND ANTIQUITIES.

By F. MAX MULLER, M.A., &c.,

FOREIGN MEMBER OF THE FRENCH INSTITUTE. Uniform with Volumes I. and II., and with Lectures on the Science of Language. Price of " Chips

from a German Workshop,per volume, in cloth, $2.50.

CRITICAL NOTICES. "The sixteen papers now put forward by this accomplished scholar, under the modest title of Chips, are as various as they are instructive and entertaining."- Notes and Queries (London).

"A more delightful volume has not been published for a very long time. Bearing marks on almost every page of the profoundest scholarship, it is full of thought, fresh, vigorous, and elevating;

and all the more instructive that it is not the thought either of a purely German or purely English thinker, but of one who unites in himself, in a very unusual degree, the best mental qualities and tendencies of both nations."--Globe (London).

Mr. Max Müller shows in this volume, as in many of his former works, that he can treat the abstrusest topics in such A style as to attract the general reader.. Luther, is one of the grandest passages in the whole book, significant of the spirit in which the author looks back upon the events of his country's history and of the power with which he can reproduce them."-Atheneum (London).

Mr. Müller always writes gracefully and effectively, and the thoughts to which he gives utterance are generally profound and pertinent to whatever subject he has in hand. Even the reader who differs from him cannot but enjoy what he reads and profit by it."-Examiner' (London). The above works sent to any address, post-paid, upon receipt of price by the publishers,
