The Examiner. ‘Of all the handsome reprints of the works of “nature's own” bard, this “Edina” edition of the Poems and Songs of Burns is perhaps the handsomest yet produced. Beautifully printed, and profusely illustrated by some of the most distinguished of the Scotch academicians, it forms a shrine worthy of the genius of the “poet of the land of the mountain and the flood.” It is, as might be expected, Scottish in every respect,--printer, publisher, and illustrators; and as also we think it should ; for with whom could it be so much a labour of love to produce a first-rate edition as with one of Burns's own countrymen? and who should be better able to illustrate the “brown heath and shaggy wood” of Scotia's scenery than her own sons?'

POPULAR WORKS

BY ASCOTT R. HOPE.
Second and cheaper Edition, crown 8vo, cloth extra, 35. 6d.,
A BOOK ABOUT DOMINIES:
BEING THE REFLECTIONS AND RECOLLECTIONS OF A

MEMBER OF THE PROFESSION. This is a manly, carnest book. The author describes in a series of essays the life and work of a schoolmaster; and as he has lived that life and done that work from deliberate choice, his story is worth hearing.'—The Spectator.

'A Book about Dominies is an extremely clever and amusing series of sketches by one who describes himself as of the profession, ... In a modest preface he expresses a belief that such a book may be made as amusing as many novels in Mr. Mudie's Library. The Book about Dominies is a hundred times more amusing and interesting than nine out of ten of such novels.' - Morning Star.

Third Edition, crown 8vo, cloth extra, price 35. 6d.,
A BOOK ABOUT BOYS.

BY ASCOTT R. HOPE,

Author of 'A Book about Dominies,' etc. *This volume is full of knowledge, both useful and entertaining, in the truest sense of the words, and it is impossible to put it down without a feeling of personal kindliness towards the author. If our readers think we have praised too much and criticised too little, we can only say, there is something about the book which disarms one's critical faculty, and appeals to them to judge for themselves. We should like to see it in the hands of every parent and schoolmaster in England.' -Saturday Review.

*This is really a delightful work, and one which we hope will find its way into the hands of every parent and every boy in the kingdom.'-- The Globe.

We should like to see this book, together with a new one which we are promised, and which will be sure to be worth reading, not only in the hands of every teacher, but on the shelves of every school library.'

THE PEOPLE'S EDITION OF

TYTLER'S HISTORY OF SCOTLAND.

[ocr errors]

The most brilliant age of Scotland is fortunate in having found a historian whose sound judgment is accompanied by a graceful liveliness of imagination. We venture to predict that this book will soon become, and long remain, the standard History of Scotland.'-Quarterly Review.

*The want of a complete History of Scotland has been long felt; and from the specimen which the volume before us gives of the author's talents and capacity for the task he has undertaken, it may be reasonably inferred that the deficiency will be very ably supplied. The descriptions of the battles are concise, but full of spirit. The events are themselves of the most romantic kind, and are detailed in a very picturesque and forcible style.'-T'imes.

EDITED ALEXANDER LEIGHTON,

One of the Original Editors and Contributors.
In announcing the completion of the Copyright Edition of the BORDER TALES,
the Publisher does not consider it necessary to say anything in recommendation
of a work which has stood the test of a general competition, and which has in.
creased in public favour with its years. Equally suited to all classes of readers,
it has been received with delight in the school-room, the drawing-room, the par-
lour, and the village reading-room. Many of the Tales have been publicly read.
The high tone of its morality renders it an admirable small library for young
members of the family.

The new Copyright Edition will contain four additional Volumes, now first
published, which will complete the work. It will be issued in Twenty-four
Monthly Volumes, price is. each, sewed in elegant wrapper, commencing March
ist, 1869. But at the same time the entire work will be kept on sale, so that all
who desire to possess it-either complete, or any separate volume thereof-can
be supplied at once. Each volume is te in itself, forming an independent
collection of stories. The work may also be had in Twelve Double Volumes,
handsomely bound in cloth, price 35. each, or in Roxburgh, gilt top, for libraries,
etc., 4s. 6d. each.

Those who already possess the first twenty Volumes are recommended to complete their sets by purchasing the four New Volumes, the last of which will contain a Steel Portrait of the Editor and principal contributor, Alexander Leighton, with a copious Glossary.
