and EMERSON. Profusely illustrated with original drawings by FENN, HENNESSY, EYTINGE, MCENTEE, MARTIN, HOMER, FREDERICKS, GRISWOLD, and HARLEY,-engraved by MR. ANTHONY. 8vo. Uniform in size and style with " Snow-Bound” and “ Ballads of New England." Price, in cloth, handsomely stamped and gilt, $s; antique morocco..

$900 In this volume literary excellence, artistic genius, and the printer's most careful skill, are happily combined to produce i superbly beautiful Holiday Book.

PUSSY WILLOW. By HARRIET BEECHER STOWE. Copiously illustrated. One vol. small 4td. Uniform with “Queer Little People.".... $1.50

Mrs. Stowe is as selicitous and winning when she writes for young people as when writing “Uncle Tom's Cabin 'or "Oldtown Folks" for their elders. As a critic said of “ Queer Little People," “ These stories are among the very best of their kind, combining most happily entertainment and instruction."

VERSES By H. H. One vol. 16mo....

This volume includes, in addition to pieces never before printed, many of those poems which have appeared in various periodicals over the signature H. H., and which have won general admiration by their fine fancy, largeness of thought, and poetic grace of expression.

GOETHE'S FAUST. Translated into English verse by BAYARD TAYLOR. Uniform with LONGFELLOW's Dante and BRYANT'S Homer. One

vol. imperial octavo, $5.00 ; half calf, $10.00. The second part, completing the work, will be issued in the Spring of 1871.j

The great favor accorded by competent judges to the extracts already given from this translation warrants the belief that it will be the standard English version of Goethe's Masterpiece, and will rank with Longfellow's Dante and Bryant's Homer

. Mr. Taylor's familiar acquaintance with German literature and life, the great care and labor he has bestowed on this work, and his acknowledged poetic genius, give ample assurance that his translation of Faust will be not only an adequate rendering of the great German poem, but a most important addition to our literature.
