HAZELL'S ANNUAL FOR 1889:

A CYCLOPEDIC RECORD OF MEN AND TOPICS

OF THE DAY.

REVISED TO DECEMBER 1888.

FOURTH YEAR OF ISSUE.

Crown 8vo. cloth, 640 pages, price 3s. 6d.

THE growing difficulty in the present day, of keeping abreast with the numerous questions—political, social, religious, literary, and scientific—which daily and hourly present themselves to the notice of every intelligent man, renders a work of the nature of 1 Hazell's Annual' of supreme importance, and makes it the indispensable and invaluable companion of the hurried reader to whom the pressure of daily life prevents an exhaustive study and examination of the subjects which continually attract the notice, and form the basis of conversation in every class of society.

'Hazell's Annual' treats of every subject of the hour, and contains upwards of 3,500 concise and explanatory articles on every topic of current political, social, and general interest referred to by the press and in daily conversation.

Eminent specialists are engaged to write upon the various subjects which come within their purview. All subjects are brought up to date, while a considerable part of the work is entirely new, thus making the 'ANNUAL' a YEARLY record Of Men and Things. The information is obtained from the highest and most responsible sources, and no efforts have been spared to make the work thoroughly reliable in all respects.

The low price places it within the reach of all. It remains only to add that the same diligence which the Proprietors have exercised in former editions to sustain its high reputation will be carefully maintained, and it is confidently hoped that the popularity of the Annual will be yet further increased by the present issue.

A four-page Prospectus, containing specimen page, numerous press opinions, and other information, may be obtained for distribution on application to the Publishers.
