KEMBLE'S (FRANCES ANN) RECORDS OF A GIRLHOOD. Large 12mo. With Portrait. $2.50.

"The book is so charming, so entertaining, so stamped with the impress of a strong, remarkable, various nature, that we feel almost tormented in being treated to a view only of the youthful phases of character. Like most of the novels that we read, or don't read, this volume is the history of a young lady's entrance into life. Mrs. Kemble's young lady is a very brilliant and charming one, and our only complaint is that we part company with her too soon.... What we have here, however, is excellent reading.... She is naturally a writer; she has a style of her own which is full of those felicities of expression that indicate the literary sense."—Nation.

THE AMATEUR SERIES. 12mo, blue cloth.

English Actors from Shakespeare to Macready. By HENRY BARTON BAKER. Two vols. $3.50

"Mr. Baker's business is with the adventures and the art of our principal players; and he rarely, if ever, departs from his well-considered plan to discuss the literature of the theatre. His anecdotes have all an authentic look, and their genuineness is, for the most part, not to be doubted. The book is extremely rich in good stories, which are invariably well told."—Pall Mall Gazette.

Moscheles' (Ignatz) Recent Music and Musicians, as described in his Diaries and Correspondence. Selected by his wife, and adapted from the original German, by A.D. COLERIDGE, $2.00.

"Full of pleasant gossip. The diary and letters between them contain notices and criticisms on almost every musical celebrity of the last half century."—Pall Mall Gazette.

Chorley's (H.F.) Recent Art and Society, as described in his Autobiography and Memoirs. Compiled from the Edition of Henry G. Hewlett, by C.H. Jones. $2.00.

Wagner's (R.) Art Life and Theories. Selected from his Writings, and translated by EDWARD L. BURLINGAME. With a preface, a catalogue of Wagner's published works, and drawings of the Bayreuth Opera House. $2.00.

"Mr. Burlingame has performed a most useful task with great tact and taste. The difficulty of rendering Wagner into intelligible English is almost insuperable, but he has overcome it, and has given us a book which will not only be interesting to all lovers of music, but entertaining, at least in some of its chapters, to the general reader."—N.Y. Tribune.

Thornbury's (Walter) Life of J.M.W. Turner, R.A. Founded on Letters and Papers furnished by his friends and fellow-academicians. With illustrations, fac-similed in colors, from Turner's original drawings. $2.75.

"The author has told fully and fearlessly the story of Turner's life as far as he could learn it, and has filled his pages with anecdotes which illustrate the painter's character and habits, and his book is, therefore, one of great interest."—N.Y. Evening Post.

Lewes (George Henry) on Actors and the Art of Acting. $1.50.

"It is valuable, first, as the record of the impressions produced upon a mind of singular sensibility by many actors of renown, and lastly, indeed chiefly, because it formulates and reiterates sound opinions upon the little-understood principles of the art of acting.... Perhaps the best work in English on the actor's art."—Nation.

Berlioz' Autobiography and Musical Grotesques. $2.00



"Lord Albemarle has done wisely to publish his Recollections, for there are few men who have had the opportunities of seeing so much of life and character as he has, and still fewer who at an advanced age could write an Autobiography in which we have opinions without twaddle, gossip without malice, and stories not marred in the telling."—London Academy.


"An extremely agreeable volume.... He writes so as to adorn everything which he touches,"—London Athenaeum.

"He has something new to tell of every one of his subjects. His book is a choice olio of fine fruits."—London Saturday Review.


SINGLE FAMOUS POEMS. Collected and Edited by ROSSITER JOHNSON. Square 12mo, gilt. $2.00.

A pretty volume fit for presentation, made up of celebrated English poems that have hitherto been printed only in periodicals and other fugitive places, or are in only such works as are not generally at hand.

The lover of poetry who is trying to find some English poem that he can get no trace of except from vague memory, would be quite apt to meet it in this volume.

PLAY-DAY POEMS. Collected and Edited by ROSSITER JOHNSON. 16mo. (Leisure Hour Series.) $1.00.

This volume contains the best of the humorous poetry published since Parton's collection in 1856, and also many of the old favorites.

"Singularly free from anything to offend the taste, or to injure the health by unsuccessful attempts to produce a laugh. You are not obliged to throw away a multitude of worthless, or mediocre specimens, before you light upon a poem which you can truly enjoy."—N.Y. Tribune.

"The most complete and judicious collection of humorous poetry ever seen in this country."—Chicago Journal.

"The collection is a capital one, and will be of peculiar value to professional and amateur readers."—Boston Transcript.

SAINTE-BEUVE'S (C.A.) ENGLISH PORTRAITS. Selected and Translated from the "Causeries du Lundi." With an Introductory Chapter on Sainte-Beuve's Life and Writings. 12mo. $2.00.

CONTENTS:—Sainte-Beuve's Life—His Writings—General Comments—Mary Queen of Scots—Lord Chesterfield—Benjamin Franklin—Edward Gibbon—William Cowper—English Literature by H. Taine—Pope as a Poet.

"Probably no one who in our days has written criticism had a surer power to perceive and discover what is true and beautiful. He makes us admire more the authors we admired before, and gives new reasons for our admiration. It is a charming volume, and one that may be made a companion, in the confident assurance that the better we know it the better we shall enjoy it."—Boston Advertiser.


WALLACE'S (D. MACKENZIE) RUSSIA. With two maps. 8vo. $4.00.

"One of the stoutest and most honest pieces of work produced in our time, and the man who has produced it ... even if he never does anything more, will not have lived in vain."—Fortnightly Review.

"Excellent and interesting ... worthy of the highest praise ... not a piece of clever book-making, but the result of a large amount of serious study and thorough research.... We commend his book as a very valuable account of a very interesting people."—Nation

"The book is excellent from first to last, whether we regard its livelier or its more serious portions."—London Athenaeum.

BAKER'S (JAMES) TURKEY. 8vo, with two maps. $4.00

"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 life of the people who form its subject, which constitutes the best possible explanation of history and of current events.... Invaluable to the student, profound or superficial, of Turkish affairs."—N.Y. Evening Post.

BRASSEY'S (MRS.) AROUND THE WORLD IN THE YACHT "SUNBEAM." Our Home on the Ocean for Eleven Months. With Chart and Illustrations. 8vo.

The history of this leisurely and luxurious cruise of the Brassey family and a few friends, in their own yacht, is given in such easy and familiar style as to make the reader feel almost one of the party.

"We close her book with a wish that, as Alexander sighed for other worlds to conquer, so there were other worlds for the 'Sunbeam' to circumnavigate."—Literary World.

"It is altogether unlike all other books of travel.... We can but faintly indicate what the reader may look for in this unrivalled book."—London Spectator.

CREASY'S (SIR EDWARD S.) HISTORY OF THE OTTOMAN TURKS. From the Beginning of their Empire to the Present Time. Large 12mo. $2.50.

"It presents a vivid and well-connected account of the six centuries of Turkish growth, conquest, and decline, interwoven with summary views of institutions, national characteristics, and causes of success and failure. It embodies also the results of the studies of a large number of earlier and later writers, and throughout evinces research, independence of judgment, and candor."—Nation.

GROHMAN'S (W.A. BAILLIE) GADDINGS WITH A PRIMITIVE PEOPLE. Being a Series of Sketches of Tyrolese Life and Customs, 16mo. (Leisure Hour Series.) $1.00.

"He has a bright, easy style, and, indeed, most of his adventures are so extraordinary as almost to verge on the brink of the incredible. We can recommend the book as singularly readable from the first chapter to the last."—Saturday Review.
