The results of the late archaeological research and of recent critical examinations into historical authorities and monuments of art, are here given with sufficient thoroughness. The whole book, indeed, is composed in the light of the most modern knowl edge and opinion, and is quite free from the legendary story-telling tone."-Nation.

PUBLISHED BY HENRY HOLT & CO.

ESCOTT'S (T. H. S.) ENGLAND. Her People, Polity, and Pursuits. 8vo. $4.00.

"A large and ustive treatise on England. . A most useful work. A massive achievement, and one which is likely to do excellent service.”—Satur day Review,

"It is a work of real value and usefulness on England as a people and a nation, and gives information about that country which it is impossible to find elsewhere in so convenient and interesting form."-N. Y. Tribune.

"One of those sterling though unpretentious books whose value is permanent. Rests on a philosophy so sound, and moves within information so accurate, that many generations to come will have to learn from him how England lived and felt and acted in 1880. To Americans it is nothing less than a revelation. The most perfect and satisfactory study in practical sociology now in existence."-Boston Advertiser.

"His work, like Mr. Wallace's, is in many parts a revelation, as it has had no predecessor, which was so founded upon personal observation, and at the same time so full of that sort of detailed information about the habits, the customs, the character, and the lite of the people who form its subject, which constitute its best possible explanation of history and of current events. Invaluable to the student, profound or superficial, of Turkish affairs."--N. Y. Evening Post.
