The “ History of American Literature," now 'offered to the public, is the first attemp made to give a systematic and critical account of the literary development of the American p It is not a mere cyclopædia of literature, or a series of detached biographical sketches a panied by extracts; but an analytic and sustained narrative of our literary history fro earliest English settlement in America down to the present time. The work is the res original and independent studies prosecuted by the author for the past ten years, and give altogether new analysis of American literary forces and results during nearly three cent The present volumesma complete work in themselves cover the whole field of our history di the colonial time.

"A work of great and permanent importance."--N. Y. Evening Post. " Its appearance will be hailed with pleasure by every reading man and woman.-N. V. Commercial Advertiser

"It would be easy to go a great way in eulogistic admiration of the work and the manner of its accomplishment is not only the only literary event of this decade, but altogether the most important attempt made to comprehend literary achievement."-Hartford Courant.

"This work ought to make a new departure in studious labor in this country. It is valuable as an example as we a product. From a literary point of view, it is one of the most valuable publications of the century, becau: measures and assigns a place to all the good literary work that has been accomplished in this country during the pe described.” - Boston Post.

"Written by a thoroughly competent scholar, who has examined the entire mass of American writings during, colonial era, and has made fitting mention of every one having appreciable literary merit, giving such portions of ih writings as may form a terse anthology of our early literature. of critical thought, and as entertaining as a story." --Episcopal Register.

In its historic completeness, in its studious mastery of the subject, in its dilige devotion to details, in its justness of judgment, in its flavor of illustration and extract, and its stately and finished sty it may confidently be expected to fulål our ideal of such a history, and that a place hitherto vacant will be occupied by beyond the danger of dispossession for many years to come."-Literary World.

MARY WOLLSTONECRAFT'S LETTERS TO GILBERT IMLAY. With a Prefatory

Memoir by C. KEGAN PAUL, author of the "Life of Godwin," and two Etchings after OPJE. Square 12mo. Price, $2.

These letters by Mrs. Shelley's mother, the author of “ A Vindication of the Rights of Woman," which are addressed to the man with whom she lived before she became Mrs. Godwin, and who afterward deserted her, were recently found among the papers of the Shelley family. They will have a new interest in this country from the fact that Imlay was an American.

II. CANTERBURY CHIMES; or, Chaucer Tales Retold for Children. By FRANCIS STORR

and Hawes TURNER. With illustrations from the Ellesmere MS. 16mo. Price, $1.50.

A most successful attempt to introduce Chaucer into the nursery. A story like “The Cock and the Fox,” we can testify from actual trial, will fascinate an ear not more than four years old, on which “Jack, the Giant Killer,” had begun to pall.

III. THE DRAMATIC LIST. A Record of the Principal Performances of Living Actors and Actresses of

the British Stage. With Criticisms from contemporary journals. Compiled and Edited by CHARLES EYRE Pascoe Crown 8vo. Price, $5,

This important work contains Biographical Sketches of all the more prominent living Actors and Actresses of the British Stage : James Anderson, Miss Bateman, Dion Boucicault, H. F. Byron, W. H. Chippendale, Helen Faucit, Mrs. Charles Kean, Adelaide Kemble, Fanny Kemble, Charles Mathews, J. L. Toole, Benjamin Webster, and numerous others.
