OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. It is never dull, and leaves behind when finished a desire for more. The illustrations of all kinds are admirable, for they are really illustrative...... The result is a book done as books should be, and Mr. James owed no apology to the public for the time occupied in performing the work so well.'--SPECTATOR.

“Mr. James's book is written in a lucid, graphic style...... It will prove interesting, however, not only to the African student, but to that shallow, restless book-skimmer the "general reader.” The public owe Mr. James and his companions a distinct debt of gratitude.' SATURDAY REVIEW.

A valuable addition to the work of scientific research and to the library of African travel.' --SCOTSMAN. . May fairly lay claim to a place among the most remarkable explorations of modern times.'--MANCHESTER COURIER

E MIN PASHA. The only authentic information concerning the Life and Work of the man whom Stanley has gone to deliter is contained in the

Volume of Letters and Journals entitled
EMIN PASHA IN CENTRAL AFRICA: Letters and Journals. Collected and

Annotated by Dr. SCHWEINFURTH, Dr. RATZEL, Dr. G. HARTLAUB, and Dr. FELKIN.
Translated from the German by Mrs. FELKIN. With Life and Introduction, specially
written for the English Edition, by Dr. FELKIN. 1 vol. demy 8vo. cloth, price 168.
Illustrated with 2 Portraits and a large Scale Map showing Emin Pasha's Explorations,

compiled by E. G. RAVENSTEIN, F.R.G.S.

This volume is a record of the highest type of exploring work. There is nothing trivial in the whole volume, and although it contains few incidents of adventure, every page abounds with interest. The book should take rank with Schweinfurth's “ Heart of Africa.” It will show how great a man, in many ways, we have in Emin Pasha.'--TIMES.

*The words and deeds of such a man must naturally interest a large section of the public. We therefore welcome this collection of his " Letters and Journals," and trust it will be as widely read as it deserves to be.'-ATHESÆUM.

HARPER'S MAGAZINE PROSPECTUS FOR 1889.

The purpose, character, and uniform excellence of the MAGAZINE are so well known that its publishers need only to point to its last year's record as an example of its accomplishment, and to make their usual promise—always kept hitherto—that the record for next year shall surpass it. The scope and character of the works in preparation, and the class of writers and artists engaged in these undertakings, fully justifies the promise. The publishers will, therefore, confine their announcements for 1889 to a few prominent features.

A new novel by CONSTANCE FENIMORE WOOLson, Author of ‘Anne'and East Angels,' will begin in the January Number. CHARLES DUDLEY WARNER will contribute a characteristic serial, which, beginning in the April Number, will run through the year. 'COMMODUS,' a play, by Gen. LEW WALLACE, the Author of • Ben-Hur,' will be published in the January Number, with illustrations by J. R. WEGUELIN.

The January Number will contain an illustrated article on MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY IN IRELAND, by JOHN GEORGE MACCARTHY,

The great art feature of the year will be the illustration of Shakespeare's Comedies by EDWIN A. ABBEY, the accompanying text to be furnished by ANDREW LANG.

The distinctively American quality of HARPER'S MAGAZINE, both as to matter and mannera quality which has secured for it the readiest welocme in Europe -- will continue to be its principal and characteristic attraction. The 'Studies of the Great West,' and the illustrated articles on Western cities, the Great American Desert, Western journalism, &c., which have already appeared, have not exhausted the programme announced at the beginning of the year. The series of articles on INDIVIDUAL WESTERN STATES is in preparation. It has been unavoidably delayed because of the very magnitude of the undertaking, The February Number will contain a thorough and exceedingly interesting paper on DAKOTA, by Mr. P. F. MCCLURE, illustrated. CHARLES DUDLEY WARNER will contribute two interesting papers on the DOMINION OF CANADA, and LAFCADIO HEARN some characteristic West Indian Sketches.

"NORWEGIAN STUDIES '—three papers by BJÖRNSTJERNE BJÖRNSON, illustrated by T. DE THULSTRUP and H. W. RANGER—will appear in early Numbers. These will be followed by an important series of papers on Russia, of a social rather than of a political character, illustrated by T. DE THULSTRUP. The series will consist of two papers by the Vicomte EUGENE MELCHIOR DE VOGÜÉ--recently elected Member of the French Academy-on SOCIAL AND COURT LIFE IN RUSSIA; an article on the RUSSIAN ARMY by a Russian general: papers on the NIJNINOVGOROD FAIR, MOSCOW, RUSSIAN ART, &C Among other Eastern papers of special interest will be articles from eminent artists, illustrated from their own drawings : TANGIERS AND MOROCCO,' by BENJAMIN CONSTANT; 'STREET SCENES IN INDIA,' by EDWIN LORD WEEKS; and ‘A FIG HARVEST IN SMYRNA,' by TRISTRAM ELLIS.

Important papers on John Ruskin will be contributed-a personal sketch by ANNE THACKERAY RITCHIE (illustrated), and more critical articles by Dr. CHARLES WALDSTEIN. An early Number will contain a description of ABBOTSFORD, from the pen of Sir WALTER SCOTT (never before published), with picturesque illustrations.

The Editorial Departments-—Editor's Easy Chair,' by GEORGE WILLIAM CURTIS, · Editor's Study,' by WILLIAM DEAN HOWELLS, and the Editor's Drawer,' conducted by CHARLES DUDLEY WARNER—will continue to be, as heretofore, the most interesting portion of the MAGAZINEalways fresh, timely, and entertaining.
