SHORT HISTORY OF FRANCE, FOR YOUNG PEOPLE, By Miss E.S. KIRKLAND, author of |Six Little Cooks,| |Dora's Housekeeping,| etc.

12MO., EXTRA, CLOTH, BLACK AND GILT, [USD]1.25.

|The narrative is not dry on a single page, and the little history may be commended as the best of its kind that has yet appeared,|

-- Bulletin, Philadelphia.

|A book both instructive and entertaining. It is not a dry compendium of dates and facts, but a charmingly written history.|

-- Christian Union, New York.

|After a careful examination of its contents, we are able to conscientiously give it our heartiest commendation. We know no elementary history of France that can at all be compared with it.|

-- Living Church.

|A spirited and entertaining sketch of the French people and nation, -- one that will seize and hold the attention of all bright boys and girls who have a chance to read it.|

-- Sunday Afternoon, Springfield (Mass.).

|We find its descriptions universally good, that it is admirably simple and direct in style, without waste of words or timidity of opinion. The book represents a great deal of patient labor and conscientious study.|

-- Courant, Hartford (Conn.).

|Miss Kirkland has composed her 'Short History of France' in the way in which a history for young people ought to be written; that is, she has aimed to present a consecutive and agreeable story, from which the reader can not only learn the names of kings and the succession of events, but can also receive a vivid and permanent impression as to the characters, modes of life, and the spirit of different people.|

-- The Nation, New York.

FAMILIAR TALKS ON ENGLISH LITERATURE. A Manual embracing the Great Epochs of English Literature, from the English conquest of Britain, 449, to the death of Walter Scott, 1832. By ABBY SAGE RICHARDSON. Fourth edition, revised. Price [USD]1.50.

THE BOSTON TRANSCRIPT SAYS:

|The work shows thorough study and excellent judgment, and we can warmly recommend it to schools and private classes for reading as an admirable text-book.|

THE NEW YORK EVENING MAIL SAYS:

|What the author proposed to do was to convey to her readers a clear idea of the variety, extent, and richness of English literature.... She has done just what she intended to do, and done it well.|

THE NEW YORK NATION SAYS:

|It is refreshing to find a book designed for young readers which seeks to give only what will accomplish the real aim of the study: namely, to excite an interest in English literature, cultivate a taste for what is best in it, and thus lay a foundation on which they can build after reading.|

PROF. MOSES COIT TYLER SAYS:

|I have had real satisfaction in looking over the book. There are some opinions with which I do not agree; but the main thing about the book is a good thing; namely its hearty, wholesome love of English literature, and the honest, unpretending, but genial and conversational, manner in which that love is uttered. It is a charming book to read, and it will breed in its readers the appetite to read English literature for themselves.|
