"The index to passages is really admirable, giving an easy key for immediate reference to some 1200 passages, and almost amounting to the importance of a concordance, combined with some of the advantages of a dictionary of quotations. This and the index to characters alone, are really 1 *orth the price of the book to any lover of Shakespeare."— Review Current Literature.

A Short History of German Literature.

By JAMES K. HOSMER,

Professor of English and German Literature, Washington University, St. Louis; Author of the "Color Guard," "Thinking Bayonet," eto.

One Volume, Large 12M0, Pp. 604. Price, $2.25.

The design of the work is to give in compendious form a sketch of the Literature of Germany from the earliest period to the present time. The accounts of books and authors are relieved by graphic historical pictures, and interesting details of visits to places memorable through assocition with great writers. The work is the matured fruit of many years of study. •

"Professor Hosmer is one of our best writers and scholars."—Hon. Geo. Bancroft (the historian).

"I have formed, both from his contributions to ' The Nation' and from his other works that I have seen, a very high opinion of his attainments as a student of literature. * * * My good opinion of his writing, I may say, has been confirmed in my hearing by the most distinguished judges."—E. L. Godkin, Esq., editor of " The Nation/

"Every intelligent reader who begins it will read it directly through, and some readers, perhaps, taking it up early in the day, will sleep none till it is finished. It is one of the best and most charming books we have been privileged to read this many a day."—St. Louis Evening Post.

"Of special and peculiar interest to all German-Americans."—Westticht Post.
