In Two Volumes, Post Octavo,
PERICLES AND ASPASIA,

By Walter SAVAGE LANDOR, Esq. " In his imaginary Conversations,' Mr. Landor established his right to the title of the English Literary Dramatist. For all that is minute and graceful in scholarship;—for all that is precise and noble in sentiment, and all that is descriptive in situation, these letters surpass the Dialogues. Innumerable are the beautiful thoughts and images that enrich these letters; there is not a page without them. Well might Greece be called a honied land, if her sages, statesmen, and maidens, discoursed in such mellifinous strains."--Monthly Review.

CELEBRATED FEMALE SOVEREIGNS,

By Mrs. JAMESON., “We are indebted to 'Mrs. Jameson for two very delightful volumes, equally creditable to herself, and advantageous to her readers."--New Monthly Mag.

The first tale, the Country Vicarage,' ought to be circulated widely throughout every house, village, and town in England. The narrative (for there is no plot) is so simple, the results so natural, the moral so excellent and so exalted."-New Monthly.
