Forming the Sixth and Seventh Parts of THE TRAVELLER'S LIBRARY.

"Admirable essays by Macaulay, M'Culloch, and other first-class writers, reproduced in a form that renders them accessible to everybody." GARDENERS' CHRONICLE. "Railway literature-or, more generally and correctly speaking, travelling literature-for the wider term takes in steamers, coaches, and all other modes of locomotionhas hitherto been for the most part confined to the two classes of periodicals and cheap editions of standard novels. But there is no good reason why the traveller, comfortably seated in railway carriage or in steam-boat saloon or deck, should limit himself exclusively to reading of a passing or ephemeral character. This seems to have been the idea which originated the Traveller's Library. The publishers offer the travelling reader something of a higher quality than the light literature which others have hitherto supposed best suited for him; and by combining cheapness and handiness of form with superiority of matter, they seem likely to succeed in adding a valuable and popular department to the library for road, rail, river, and sea. Not but that people staying at home may also be glad to

avail themselves, for reading at fireside or window-corner, of the elegant and excellent series of essays, &c. which we are promised, and here have earnest of, in the Traveller's Library. The collection could not have begun better than with Mr. Macaulay's brilliant historical and biographical paper on Warren Hastings. It is followed up by another of his valuable contributions to the Edinburgh Review, the scarcely less interesting biographical essay on the career of Lord Clive; and others from the same vivid and powerful pen are announced. But variety of authorship as well as of subject is provided; and in the account of London, enlarged, and the errors that are caused by the passing of time amended, from Mr. M'Culloch's Geographical Dictionary, we have a specimen of works of another kind and class which will not less fitly find a place in the series. With the great resources and experience which the publishers possess, and the excellent mode in which they have begun this new enterprise, there is little risk in predicting its popularity and success."

Late Professor of Geography in the College of Civil Engineers.


Forming the Seventh Work of a New School Series, edited by Rev. G. R. GLEIG, M.A.,

Inspector-General of Military Schools.

"This is one of the best numbers of this excellent |lected all the main facts of the historical part of the Old School Series, containing a brief survey of the geography of the world, sufficiently copious in its details to render it interesting, and comprehending all the leading facts connected with the different countries, especially those most interesting to the English pupil." JOHN BULL.

GLEIG'S SCHOOL SERIES.-"The object of this School Series is to combine the impartation of useful knowledge with the ordinary purposes of reading exercises.... In the selection of his materials, the treatment of the different topics, and the style of expression, Mr. Gleig has shewn great judgment. He has extracted all the marrow of our history, and presented it to the reader in an intelligible shape, unencumbered with dates or details that are not absolutely essential. In the Sacred History the editor has col

and New Testament. The account of the interval between the close of the Old and the beginning of the New is sup plied from authentic sources. Great care has been taken to exclude whatever would be likely to give offence to the adherents of any religious body. The story is told with clearness and force.... The third book gives a succinct and accurate account of the history of India from its commencement down to the present time. Short though it be, it contains sufficient information for ordinary purposes, and more than many people possess. The space which it occupies is well employed. There is no waste of words, though there are enough of them to ensure perspicuity."
