FRANCIS PARKMAN'S WRITINGS.

Every library should include a set of the Works of America's most eminent historian, FRANCIS PARKMAN. No historical writer now living has achieved such renown as Mr. Parkman, or received such unqualified and universal praise, and to read his writings is to have such tributes as the following confirmed:

[merged small][ocr errors][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][ocr errors]

"The time is not far distant when it (La Salle and the Discovery of the Great West') must take its place among the few American classics."-Chicago Tribune.

"One of the most brilliant and fascinating books (The Conspiracy of Pontiac') that has ever been written by any historian since the days of Herodotus."Prof. John Fiske, in Harper's Magazine.

No poet--not even Homer himself—ever had a more romantic theme, or one fuller of strangely stirring action, than that which Mr. Francis Parkman years ago selected as the subject of his life-work. If we value romance, it is here in greater abundance than in any work of imagination; if we seek for stories of adventure and deeds of daring, we have them here on an heroic scale; if we indulge the modern taste for the analysis of character and motive, this true story furnishes richer materials for such study than any novelist can possibly command." New York Evening Post.

THE POPULAR EDITION OF PARKMAN.

Ten vols., 12mo, cloth, $15.00; half calf, $30.00.

This new edition of Francis Parkman's fascinating Histories, printed from the same large type as the octavo edition, has proved very successful, several large editions having been sold. With the exception of "Montcalm and Wolfe," Mr. Parkman's new work, the Popular Edition can be supplied only in sets, volumes of the octavo edition alone being furnished separately.

BARTLETT'S FAMILIAR QUOTATIONS.

Familiar Quotations: being an Attempt to trace to their Sources Passages and Phrases in Common Use. By JOHN BARTLETT. Eighth Edition, revised and greatly enlarged. 12mo, 919 pages, cloth, $3.00.

Also in numerous styles of fine binding.

Everyone in search of the author of a quoted phrase or passage refers to this work. Its great success brought many imitators into the field, but it has remained, notwithstanding, the authority. Universally commended and always satisfactory, it has reached a sale of nearly 100,000 copies.

BARTLETT'S SHAKESPEARE PHRASE BOOK.

Giving a Ready Reference to Any Passage in Shakespeare. (Uniform with above.) 12mo, cloth, $3.00. The volume contains 1,038 pages (including 82 pages of comparative readings), the average number of phrases on a page is 57 and the total number of references is over 50,000. It is less expensive and less bulky than Mary Cowden Clarke's Concordance, its type is larger and more legible, and it affords as ready a reference to Shakespeare as that work.

"Under her magic pen, the ruins hum with busy life, blossom with color, and echo with chant or dirge. The latest revelations of the spade, and the identifications, readings, and interpretations of scholars, are set before us in abundance. The secrets of chronology, and the reasons why the Egyptians were so different from us as well as from the Greeks and Hebrews, are set forth in a few words, as only the facile expert can set them forth. In addition to the notes, which will be 'nuts to the scholar and reader seeking solid information, there is the narrative, lively, piquant, full of fun, and eminently readable."-The Critic. By the same author, and uniform with the above:

UNTRODDEN PEAKS AND UNFREQUENTED VAlleys.

A Midsummer Ramble in the Dolomites. Revised Edition, with illustrations and maps. 8vo, cloth, $2.50. "It is quite a treat to fall in with this bright, breezy record, in every line of which we seem to hear the ring of that cheery laughter wherewith its author greets every new mishap of the road, meeting scanty food, hard quarters, noise, dirt, rain, bad roads, the buffeting of mountain storms, and the stupidity of mountain peasants, not as a direct personal injury, to be avenged by persistent ill-humor, but as a kind of rough practical joke, rather exhilerating than otherwise."-New York Times.

'Here is a little work I beg you to read. It is written-I would have you note-by a married man, much in love with his wife, very happy in his home; an observer who, spending his life among artists, amused himself by sketching one or two such households as I spoke of just now. From the first to the last line of this book all is true."-From the Prologue.
