DAY & SON'S PROSPECTUS
MRS. J. B. SPEID'S work entitled Our Last Years in India; the translation of the concluding volume of M. Thiers' History of the Consulate and the Empire, produced with creditable promptness by Messrs. Willis & Sotheran; the Hon. James Williams's Vindication of the Southern States of America; and a neat volume of original biographies of German Ministers and Philanthropists of Modern Times, published by Messrs. Strahan & Co., appear to be the books of most importance-or perhaps we should say of most importance to general readers in our present list. Mrs. Speid's work is both narrative and discursive-the substance being an account of the author's life in India for several years. M. Thiers' history is too well known by the controversies which its statements concerning Waterloo-that tender point in all French narratives of Napoleon's career-have caused in our public journals, and by the extracts which have already been published, to require any further introduction to our readers. This forms the twentieth volume, and concludes the work, extending from June 1815 to the death of the great hero of this terrible story of gigantic wars, a 1821.
Mr. Williams's work entitled The South Vindicated is a solid volume of letters on the subject of the differences of the Southern States with the North, originally published during the canvass for the Presidency in 1860. It has an introduction by Mr. J. Baker Hopkins. Though wanting
in the eloquence and spirit which distinguish Mr. Spence's remarkable volume, the present work will have for enquirers into the causes of the American Civil War a peculiar interest, as having been written on the brink of the outbreak, and therefore indicating the feelings and opinions of the Southern party before the war completed their estrangement from their Northern brethren. If our book list is again somewhat meagre, we may at least indulge in the reflection with which the cheerful-minded console themselves for a windy day in March or a snowy Christmas-it smeagreness is "seasonable." Meanwhile, our readers may observe from our numerous announcements below that refreshing tokens of the coming publishing campaign are beginning to show themselves. The following is our usual classification of such publications in our list, besides those above mentioned, as are also deserving of notice:
In LITERATURE, SCIENCE, AND ART we have Mr. Marsh's work on the Origin and History of the English Language, and of the Early Literature it Embodies, to which we drew attention in last number. In the Langue Basque et Langues Finnoises, 4to., published by Messrs. Williams & Norgate, we have an important contribution to philological science by Prince Lucien Bonaparte; Our Feathered Families, by Mr. H. G. Adams, is a volume of popular scientific information, which, though complete in itself, will form one of three volumes intended to appear on the subject of English birds; we have also to record under this head A Manual of Geography, being a description of the natural features, productions, climate, &c., of the earth, by Francis Morton; Palæontologia Indica, or Figures and Descriptions of the Organic Remains procured during the Progress of the Geological Survey of India, 4to., with 25 plates; and Mr. G. H. Townsend's solid Manual of Dates, a dictionary of reference to important events.
In HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, a volume of interesting additions to the Marquis of Kildare's work on the Earls of Kildare and their Ancestors has appeared; we find also a Life of the Rev. ¦ John Milner, (Roman Catholic) Bishop of Castabala, by F. C. Husenbeth; Hampshire in 1086, an Extension of the Latin Text and an English Translation of the Domesday Book for Hampshire, 4to.; a Historical Sketch of the Parish of Davington, Kent, 4to.; and a History of the Kings of Ancient Britain, from Brutus to Cadwallader, abridged from the Collectanea Cambrica. In GEOGRAPHY AND TRAVEL We find nothing but Mrs. Speid's work entitled Our Last Years in India, above alluded to; but in THEOLOGY we have a Second Volume of Dr. Samuel Davidson's Introduction to the Old Testament, comprising the Historical and Poetical Books, Prophecy, &c.; Hymns and Verses on Sacred Subjects, by J. Ryland, D.D., the greater part now published for the first time, with a biographical sketch; The Churchman and the Freethinker, or a Friendly Address to the Orthodox, by the Rev. T. Shore; a volume of Sermons on Christian Doctrine, preached in Canterbury Cathedral, by Henry Alford; Two Lectures on Buddhism, its Origin, History, and Doctrines, by J. De Alexis; Pictorial Bible and Church History, Stories from the Earliest down to the Present Times, by the Rev. H. Formby; and a Third Volume of the Works of John Howe.
In FICTION we have John and I, a Novel, 3 vols.; a story of English Domestic Life, by Georgiana M. Craik, entitled Winifred's Wooing, in 1 vol.; Family Troubles, by Charlotte Hardcastle, 2 vols.; A Maiden of our Own Day, a religious story, in 1 vol. ; and Mick Tracy, the Irish Scripture-reader, or the Martyred Convert and the Priest.
Among EDUCATIONAL works we find The Eton College Modern Atlas, consisting of twenty-four Maps, with an Index of above 32,000 names, compiled for the use of Eton College; An Epitome of Universal History, in Verse, designed for the Young; A Poetical Reading Book, selected for the use of Junior Classes, by W. M'Gavin; A Manual of School Drill, compiled for the Committee of the Home and Colonial School Society; and a Dictionary of Every-day Difficulties in Reading, Writing, and Speaking the English Language, by Edward Shelton.
Among the NEW EDITIONS we may note a 2d of Mulcahy's Principles of Modern Geometry, revised; and of Concionalia, or Outlines of Sermons for Parochial Use throughout the Year, by the Rev. Henry Thompson; and a 3d of Vols. 1 and 2 of Mr. Froude's History of England from the Fall of Wolsey to the Death of Elizabeth.
Mr. MURRAY's new list of forthcoming works includes a work on the Geological Evidences of the Antiquity of Man, by Sir Charles Lyell, with illustrations; The Life and Letters of General Sir William Napier, K.C.B., edited by H. A. Bruce, M.P., portraits, 2 vols.; Narrative of the Rise and Progress of the Taeping Rebellion in China, from Personal Observations and Information collected on the Spot, by Com. Lindesay Brine, R.N., with maps and plans; Travels in the Andes of Peru and India while Superintending the Collection of Cinchona Plants, and the Introduction of Bark into India, by Clements R.

Stanley, D.D., plans, 8vo.; Recollections of Tartar Steppes and their Inhabitants, by Mrs. Atkinson, illustrations; History of the Modern Styles of Architecture, by James Fergusson, illustrations; and numerous other works.
Messrs. MACMILLAN have in the press A History of Federal Government, by E. A. Freeman. The recent events in America will give a peculiar interest to this subject. We understand, however, that Mr. Freeman's work, which has been long in hand, deals with the question in a large historic manner, and begins with the Federations of Ancient Greece. Dr. Daniel Wilson's work, Pre-Historic Man, is just ready; it contains numerous woodcuts illustrating the arts of America and other countries in the pre-historic condition. Messrs. Macmillan & Co. also announce The Two Catherines, a Novel, in 2 vols. ; A Painter's Camp in the Highlands, by P. G. Hamerton; and other works.
Messrs. EDMONSTON & DOUGLAS announce that Christopher North, a Memoir of the late Professor Wilson, already announced as compiled from family papers and other sources, by his daughter, Mrs. Gordon, will be published early in the present month. They will also publish in November, in 2 vols. 8vo. with maps, Scotland under her Early Kings, a History of the Kingdom to the Close of the Thirteenth Century, by E. William Robertson; Time's Treasure, or Devout Thoughts for Every Day in the Year, expressed in verse; and in 1 vol. 8vo. The Roman Poets of the Republic, by W. Y. Sellar, M.A.
Messrs. WERTHEIM, MACINTOSH, & HUNT will publish to-morrow, in 1 vol. 8vo., Wanderings among the Falashas in Abyssinia, together with a description of the country and its various inhabitants, illustrated by a map, and twenty engravings of scenes and persons, taken on the spot, by the Rev. Henry A. Stern.
Our readers will find in our advertising columns this day a complete prospectus, with list of subjects, subscribers' names, &c., of Mr. J. B. Waring's great work, entitled The Masterpieces of Industrial Art and Sculpture at the International Exhibition, 1862, to which we have already drawn attention. Messrs. Day & Son remind the trade that with the closing day of the International Exhibition of 1862 the list of subscribers will be closed, and that not one copy in excess of the list will be printed for any purpose whatever. Should the limit of 2,000 be reached before the close, further orders will be at once refused.
Messrs. Low, SON, & Co.'s new list of forthcoming works comprises Eyes and Ears, by Henry Ward Beecher, D.D., Author of Life Thoughts, &c.; a new edition of The Elements of International Law, by Henry Wheaton; Myself and My Relatives, 1 vol., with Frontispiece on steel from a drawing by John E. Millais; and other works.
The Garden Oracle, or Economic Year Book, edited by Shirley Hibberd, is announced by the Messrs. GROOMBRIDGE for publication early in October.
Messrs. SUTTABY & Co.'s and Messrs. PEACOCK & Co.'s copious new lists of Ladies' and Gentlemen's Pocket Books, Almanacks, Diaries &c., will be found in our advertising columns; as also Messrs. T. J. & J. SMITH'S, and Messrs. WILLIAM BROWN & Co.'s list of Diaries.
Messrs. TALLANT & Co.'s New Literary Year Book and Diary is now ready. The Diary will suffice for any year, or will last for two years or more if desired.
Messrs. HATCHARD & Co. have just ready a new work by the Author of Peep of Day, entitled Lines Left Out, with illustrations.
Messrs. HAMILTON, ADAMS, & Co. publish this day Christian Verses for the Children, by the compilers of Christian Lyrics.
Messrs. CASSELL, PETTER, & GALPIN will shortly publish, in weekly numbers, price one penny, A Book of Family Prayers, to be completed in one yearly volume.
Messrs. RIVINGTON have been appointed sole agents for the Cambridge University Press, and announce that they are prepared to supply all the editions of the Bible, Common Prayer Book, Church Services, &c., in sheets and in the usual bindings.
An Essay on the True Theory of International Copyright, by Mr. J. Alfred Novello, the wellknown musical publisher, to which a weekly literary contemporary gives prominent space in its columns, developes a new doctrine on the subject. Mr. Novello thinks our present system of international copyright unjust and complicated in many respects; and he states that he has given the subject careful study during many years of publishing experience. The result of his reflections is the conviction that copyright should be conferred on those only who print and publish their works within the realm, instead of the present system, which confers copyright on authors, "not because they have so benefited society, but upon those who are accidentally born in countries with which we have international arrangements." Accordingly Mr. Novello proposes "that English law should offer such a simple and ample right as should make it the interest of every author to find a publisher in Britain, wherever else in the world he may print and publish his book." A little consideration will, we are convinced, bring our readers to the conclusion that Mr. Novello's principle has no real ground in equity or justice, and that the change he proposes would be prejudicial to the interests both of authors and publishers. At first sight, it is quite true that it would appear to be profitable to English publishers to compel the foreign author to reprint and publish his book here, instead of importing copies ready printed; but it must be remembered that such a system would be reciprocal, and that English authors and publishers would, in their turn, be compelled to reprint and publish abroad. There can be no possible gain either to book-buyers or book-producer, in compelling two printings and publishings where one would suffice. Suppose a Copyright Treaty to exist between England and America, for instance: is it not certain, in that case, that the publishers of a great
Cyclopædia or Dictionary in England or the United States would be enabled to expend a greater sum in producing a really valuable work, from the fact that they would have two great markets in which to dispose of copies ? Mr. Novello's plan would divide this patronage, so that neither party would get it. It is possible, indeed, to conceive that the scheme would in some cases prevent the publication of an expensive work altogether, while the distinction between books printed and books not printed within the country would establish a protectionism of the worst kind; for whereas a protective law, however prejudicial to the interests of the public in general, is usually profitable to the producer, Mr. Novello's protectionism would be mischievous to all parties. The United States have at the present moment, unfortunately, in their differential duty upon copies of English publications which are reproduced in America, a principle in operation essentially the same as that of Mr. Novello; but the friends of international copyright hope to see this system abolished, or at least modified, when the civil war shall have terminated, and left time for reflection: they certainly do not wish to see it sanctioned and perpetuated by the adoption of the same principle in Europe. Mr. Novello is, we suspect, quite right in his conjecture that English authors will "entertain with reluctance" his proposed reform.
The fact of a missing portion of the Liber Custumarum, or Book of Customs of the City of London, having been discovered in the Cottonian collection in the British Museum, which we observe mentioned in the newspapers as a recent discovery, was, we believe, announced by Mr. Riley, the translator and annotator of that curious work, several years ago. The original manuscript book, on vellum illuminated, is in the possession of the Corporation of London. How the missing portion came to the British Museum is fully explained by entries in the Corporation books. It appears clearly that Sir Robert Cotton, the old antiquary of the time of James I. and Charles I., whose collection is now in the British Museum, borrowed the volume for purposes of antiquarian research; but, with that acquisitiveness which is not uncommon among men of his class, showed considerable reluctance to part with the volume when called upon by the City to restore it to its owners. That a portion remained in his possession, and that this por tion is in the British Museum, is now certain. Mr. Norris, M.P., is, we understand, to bring the matter forward in the House of Commons-we presume on behalf of the City. Whether the doctrine of Nullum Tempus which the Crown lawyers lay down is applicable to Corporation rights, we do not pretend to say; but it is at least certain that the manuscript now in the British Museum has been parted from its context for more than two centuries, and has been in the possession of the British Museum half that time. Of course, the public interests only require that the two portions should be together, and the book be accessible to scholars. Either the City or the Museum must give way, and it may therefore become a question whether the whole volume should not be brought under the custody of Mr. Panizzi, instead of being buried in the inaccessible recesses of Guildhall.
The story of Mick Tracy, the Irish Scripture-reader, just published by The Book Society, a copy of which is now before us, introduces its readers to some scenes which are somewhat out of the ordinary track of the well-known type of novel of Irish life. The story, though one of adventure and incident, is, we are assured by the author, not one of fiction, but of fact. It is illustrated with a large number of well-executed woodcuts.
It is rumoured that Mr. Wilkie Collins's story of No Name, just drawing to a conclusion in All the Year Round, will be followed by a story by Mr. Charles Reade, in the same journal. Mr. Thomas Adolphus Trollope (brother of Mr. Anthony Trollope) has just ready for publication a new work entitled A Lenten Journey in Umbria and the Marches of Ancona.
Messrs. Longman & Co.'s Annual Trade Sale will take place at the Albion Tavern, Aldersgate Street, on Tuesday next.
It is said that the new work in the press, by Bishop Colenso, entitled The Pentateuch and Book of Joshua Critically Examined, and about to be published by Messrs. Longman & Co., is likely to cause some excitement, by reason of the boldness with which it handles theological topics.
