Extract From Preface.—' This is from first to last a school book. No other aim has been in view in its preparation than that of making the best possible teaching book of American history. Thongh the illustrations are by some of the best artists and engravers of the time, and though they are far more abundant than is usual in books of this kind, there has been no thought of making this a mere picture book. The illustrations are part and parcel of the teaching apparatus: their primary use, like that of the maps and diagrams, is to make the history visible.'

FREDERICK THE NOBLE. By Sir Mobell Mackenzie, K.C.B., &c, &c. Crown 8vo. limp cloth, with Facsimiles of the late Emperor's Handwriting, and many Woodcuts, 250 pages, 2s. 6d.

It was felt by those who have the greatest cause to be satisfied with the services which Sir Morell rendered to the late Emperor Frederick III., that it was necessary for him to vindicate his professional reputation from the slurs cast upon it by certain German physicians, and they therefore left him free to publish' an independent report, should he think fit to do so. Accordingly he has for some weeks been incessantly occupied in preparing this work for the Press, and it will shortly be issued simultaneously in German and English. The work will contain facsimiles of the late Emperor's handwriting, and other sketclies, and will form not merely a personal defence of Sir Morell against the personal attacks made upon him, but it will contain an historical account of his long-continued daily intercourse with the Emperor.

As a very large demand for this Work is sure to arise, the Trade are requested to send their orders early, and also applications for Prospectuses.

Extract From Preface.—' The "Recollections," whether critical or personal, have chiefly reference to past actors. Sometimes, however, living performers have been commented on either when comparison between themselves and their predecessors seemed desirable, or when they have so long retired from the stage that their career is become part of its history, or where they have been particularly associated with some remarkable event—such, for instance, as Phelps's management of Sadler's Wells. Many names of contemporary actors are, however, omitted, which would have high claims to notice had the writer's main object been to treat of the existing Stage.'
