[Published July 26. Some Press Notices. “This pleasant and welcome book presents a singularly attractive picture of a man whose name means much to all Orientalists and to all who knew him. . . . There must be many who will read his life with intense interest. ... The book makes good reading.”The Times.

“A most interesting volume. . . . Cannot fail to please all who are fortunate enough to pick it up when they have an hour or two of leisure.”---Daily Telegraph.

“A worthy biography of a fine spirit. . . . The book is full of fine material, well arranged."-Pall Mall Gazette.

“With the life sympathetically written, the letters judiciously compiled, and two excellent portraits added to the interest, the whole book should be heartily welcomed and enjoyed by the fit reader."-St. James's Gazette.

“The volume is most interesting, and Mr. George Cowell deserves great credit for the ability and good taste which he has displayed."-Aihenæum.

“In these days when few men are so dull or so obscure that their memoirs cannot be supposed by some one to have a claim' upon the reading world, it is always a relief to come across a biography which it was right to publish. This book will be read with pleasure.”Guardian, Early Days at Uppingham under Edward Thring. By an Old Boy. pp. 2 blank, x, 163, 1 blank. Crown 8vo. 35. 6d. net.

[Published July 1. The memories go back over a period of fifty years to quite the early time of the great head master's rule, which rendered the school so famous. They are all drawn from personal recollection, and serve to illustrate forcibly the difference between the conditions of school lise half a century ago and those of the present day.

Some Press Notices. “This interesting book throws much light not only on the early days of the revived school of Uppingham, but on the immense changes that have taken place in education during the last seventy years.”—Guardian.

Early Days at UPPINGHAM UNDER EDWARD THRing-Continued.

"A most interesting book."-Spectator.
“ An interesting little book."-Standard,

“An Old Boy,' gifted with a vivid pen as well as with a faithful memory, puts forth a notable memorial of his schooldays in Early Days at Uppingham under Edward Thring.

. . His opening account of the setting forth from home strikes a delightful note of ingenuous aspiring youth that is not missed throughout the whole pleasing record.”- Westminster Gazette.

A good holiday present for the schoolboy of to-day.”Daily Chronicle. “This is a book for an immense public, its interest being alike for men and schoolmen, boys and schoolboys.”Bookman. History of the United States of America. By HENRY

[Published May 27. A History of the United States of America, designed to fall between the elaborate works in many volumes and the condensed school histories, and aims at presenting, within the compass of a single volume, an accurate narrative of the origin and growth of the country in such à form as to interest the general reader. The work is brought down to as late a period as the Panama rebellion of 1903. It is furnished with a series of illustrative maps, and a useful chronology of all the important events since the discovery of Vinland (New England) by Ericson in 1000 A.D.

Press Notice. “ The best single-volume account of the American people ; trustworthy, comprehensive, and interesting in style." -- Saturday Review.

English Men of Letters. New Series. Maria Edgeworth. By the Hon. Emily LAWLESS. pp. viii (inc. i blank), 219, i blank. Crown 8vo, gilt top. 25. net.

[Published July 6. Some Press Notices. “ It is not so much Maria Edgeworth the author, wit, and moralist, that Miss Lawless has desired to depict, as Maria Edgeworth the woman, “an exceptionally pleasant woman, nay, an exceptionally pleasant Irishwoman.' That she has succeeded no one reading this admirable, lively biography can doubt.”—St. James's Gazette.

Extremely sympathetic and always entertaining ; it shows, too, at every turn a sincere and concentrated effort to be just and critical. These are admirable qualities in a biographer. Worthy of its place in the notable series to which it comes as the latest recruit.”Daily Chronicle.

“Miss Lawless is to be congratulated upon having produced what is very nearly the ideal life of Maria Edgeworth. Within little more than two hundred pages she has included all necessary facts, and has achieved a living presentment of a most estimable and lovable character.”Guardian.

“Miss Lawless has drawn a most acceptable portrait of a delightful woman."-Standard. “A memoir of great interest.”Globe.

“Though some of the recent additions to the ‘English Men of Letters' series may have surpassed Miss Emily Lawless's Maria Edgeworth as efforts of critical appreciation and analysis, we can recall none which has equalled it as a biography. . . . Admirable monograph.”—World.

"The whole book is admirably put together, and Miss Lawless is to be congratulated on this charming monograph."- Queen. Hobbes. By Sir LESLIE STEPHEN. pp. x (inc. 4 blank),

.
244 (inc. i blank). Crown 8vo, gilt top. 25. net.

.

HOBBES-Continued.

Some Press Notices. “ One of the most remarkable additions to the Men of Letters.' ... The admirable judgment and remarkable knowledge of Sir Leslie Stephen have rarely been seen to more advantage than in these pages.”Times.

“This little book makes one realise how much the world of letters has lost by Sir Leslie Stephen's death. . . . There are few indeed who could present so complete an account of Ilobbes's philosophy in so attractive a guise. The criticism is always just and often acute, the exposition is as accurate as any scholar could desire, and yet the most casual reader is interested.”—Spectator.

“A book of exceptional interest and value."- Westminster Gazette.

“The volume is such a mature and valuable piece of work as makes us feel anew the sense of our loss in the death of its author in his intellectual prime.”-Observer.

“Hobbes's defects and inconsistencies receive equally impartial treatment with his genius and merits in this finely balanced appreciation, in which Sir Leslie Stephen has left us a literary legacy of the highest value.”- World.

“ Valuable little work."- Globe.

“One of the happiest examples of Sir Leslie's marvellous success in making biography unfailing in its interest."- Pall Mall Gazette.

Mr. Savage Landor's New Book. The Gems of the East. Sixteen Thousand Miles of

Research Travel among Wild and Tame Tribes of Enchanting Islands. By A. HENRY SAVAGE LANDOR. With numerous Illustrations, Diagrams, Plans, and Map by the Author. In 2 vols. Vol. I. pp. xii, folded map in colours as frontispiece, 328, 19 page plates. Vol. II. pp. xii (inc. i blank) 460 (inc. i blank), 31 page plates, 2 folded tables. Demy Svo.

[Published June 3. Some Press Notices. “Of absorbing interest. . . . A work that tells us very much which is quite new and that is always fresh and independent in observation.”— Pall Mall Gazette.

“From a sociological point of view Mr. Landor's studies are invaluable : his anthropometrical measurements alone, dealing as they do with some forty hitherto practically unknown tribes, are in themselves a very storehouse of information ; and the author's drawings, accurate, painstaking, and careful, have a great and permanent value. .. These two doughty volumes have much that is new, instructive, and interesting. They are fluently written, well illustrated, and afford fuller proof, were such proof needed, that Mr. Landor is one of the most thorough, painstaking, and observant of our younger explorers.”—Academy.

" It is needless to say that Mr. Landor's journeyings were adventurous in the extreme. We must leave him to give his own account to the large number of readers whom these bright, unconventional volumes will enable to share their excitement without their perils.”— St. James's Gazette.

“The book undoubtedly contains a great deal that may be useful in adding to our knowledge of these fascinating islands, and Mr. Landor's researches are the more valuable because he has described many tribes which will vanish or lose their individuality before the wave of Western civilisation." - Daily Chronicle.

“It is almost impossible to give an adequate idea in the space at our disposal of the enormous interest of Mr. A. H. Savage Landor's newest work."-Daily Mail.

“No one interested in works of travel can afford to overlook Mr. Landor's vivacious narrative, and it may be premised that no one will find it lacking. ... The work is full of striking illustrations."-Bookman.

" The book, without doubt, contains a large amount of valuable information.”-Field. “Full of picturesque incident and vivid description.”—T. P.'s Weekly.

“The book may be commended to the hardy race of readers for whom stories of strange lands have a peculiar charm."-- Literary World.

“The book will receive a wide welcome in this country, as well as in the United States, as a lively and picturesque record of travel among wild and tame tribes.'”—County Gentleman.

"Two very entertaining, instructive, and well-illustrated volumes."--Observer.

[Published July 12. Some Press Notices. "A closely studied and extremely valuable contribution to political history. . . . Professor Osgood has brought to his work the most unwearying industry, a fine grasp of essentials, and a lucidity of style the more remarkable because of the great complexity of his theme."Academy.

“Mr. Osgood is to be congratulated on having produced a book characterised at once by research in a comparatively unexplored field, and by learning, thought, and an attractive literary style."-Scotsman.

[Published Aug. 19. Manchu and Muscovite. By B. L. PUTNAM WEALE.

Being letters from Manchuria written during the Autumn of 1903. With an Historical Sketch, entitled “Prologue to the Crisis,” giving a complete account of the Manchurian Frontiers from the earliest days, and the growth and final meeting of the Russian and Chinese Empires in the Amur Regions. With Map and Illustrations. pp. xx (inc. 2 blank), frontisp., 552, 29 page plates, i folded plate, i folded map in colours. 8vo. Ios. net.

[Published June 28. A work of the highest importance to any student of the Far Eastern crisis. The author, who has spent his life among the Chinese, gives a minute and detailed account of a journey through Manchuria with the avowed object of showing the character of the Russian occupation. He shows first that Manchuria is a grain-producing country of the first rank, which in its settled and cultivated parts is thoroughly Chinese, and in such towns as have sprung up along the railway not only is the mass of the population Chinese, but in all departments of life the Chinaman is ousting the Russian. The thesis of the book is to prove, in short, that the supposed Russification of Manchuria is a myth; that the occupation is purely military and lacks all the elements of permanence. This is illustrated by a stringent and very amusing examination of the railway system, the operations of the Russo-Chinese Bank, and the whole conduct of affairs. The author has the gift of observation and of conveying his impressions so that the whole picture of the rapidly built fabrication of Russian civilisation, in contrast with the steady and rooted organism of Chinese agricultural and trading life, stands out vividly. Moreover, he writes with the Japanese war near at hand, and his forecast, dating from last February, of much that has happened and much that yet may happen, together with his summary of Russia's military resources and Japan's chances, makes most curious and interesting reading. But in its essence the book is impeachment of Russia's business methods from the point of view of an Englishman who knows the East and understands business thoroughly.

Sorne Press Notices. "An unusually interesting and suggestive work, which may be cordially recommended to all who wish to enlarge their knowledge of Manchuria.”The Times.
