DODD, MEAD & CO.'S NEW PUBLICATIONS.
The Diary of Philip Hone.
Life of John Davis, the Navigator.
By CLEMENTS R. MARKHAM, C.B., F.R.S. 12mo, cloth, with Maps and Illustrations, $1.25. Being the initial volume in the series of Great Explorers and Explorations. Other volumes will follow rapidly.
Edited by BAYARD TUCKERMAN. In 2 vols., large 8vo, $7.50. Philip Hone, a member of an old Knickerbocker family, was one of the few men of his time in America who had the leisure to keep a diary and the varied experience to make such a record valuable to posterity. He held the office of Mayor of New York, and for many years was high in the counsels of the Whig party, and was closely identified with the leading interests of the city. His diary extends from 1828 to 1845. The political life of these years is commented upon by one who was familiar with its inner workings. Daniel Webster, Martin Van Buren, with a score of their prominent contemporaries, are familiarly described and conversations with them recorded. A graphic description is given of the famous Tippecanoe election, in which Hone took an active part on the side of Harrison.
But probably the portion of the diary which will be most eagerly read is that relating to the social life of New York.
The Knickerbocker of to-day will learn what company was present at his father's wedding, where his grandfather most frequently dined, and what people thought about him. The student of the history of New York will find Hone's diary a mine of information; the gossips of to-day will pause to enjoy the forgotten small-talk of their grandmothers.
