SPECIMEN OF THE ILLUSTRATIONS.

Harper's Young People is more popular in price and less luxurious in get-up, but it contains more matter, and is so admirably edited and written that it can hold its own against all rivals......... The clever and laughable humorous woodcuts are a special feature, and so is the "Post Office," which enables young readers in all parts of the world to exchange confidences with each other.'-MANCHESTER EXAMINER.

Mr. Stevens has a ready pen, he writes brightly, and has kept his eyes open, as was indeed essential during his long ride. His book, with its admirable illustrations, is far more entertaining and informing " than the majority of travellers' tales, and its sketches of the ways and manners of Orientals of many varieties are drawn and coloured with intelligence.'

MORNING Post. "We have read this volume with keen zest and pleasure. It is deeply interesting, and tells us much about countries little known ; much, indeed, that has not been told before. The daring wheeler records his experiences and adventures with such simple, straightforward, and unaffected manliness, that it is not until the reader stops to think, that he perceives the courage displayed, the extent of the undertaking, and the alarming nature of the dangers encountered.'—LAND AND WATER.

*** Part I., “SAN FRANCISCO TO TEHERAN,' can still be obtained, price 16s.,

with over 100 Illustrations, of which the GUARDIAN says: We have found Mr. Stevens' adventures very amusing. But was on his travels through wilder regions that Mr. Stevens encountered the adventures which make his book worth reading. After a variety of strange experiences, some of which are well depicted in the clever illustrations which accompany his book, he reached Teheran, further than which the book does not take us, but we hope some day to have an account of the same.'

'Captain Abney may be cordially congratulated on having succeeded in a by no means easy task...... The portraits, as a rule, are both excellent as likenesses and admirable as photographs.'-ATHENÆUM.

Mr. Cunningham has done well...... in bringing together a series of lives of the great guides of the Alps, written as far as possible each by the amateur in whose company the guide most frequently worked...... The time is propitious foi the appearance of such a work...... The volume in question would be but half noticed if one omitted to mention the remarkably fine series of portraits and other illustrations with which it is embellished.'--ACADEMY.
