FROM AUTHOR'S PREFACE.

“ If any professional or political faith is expected, as a pledge of the spirit in which this history is written, it is this: I hail the development of popular power as an essential condition of the social advancement of nations; I am an ardent admirer of political liberty—of rational and enlightened liberty, and I condemn any violation of its principles, whether by a despotic king or by an ill-ordered republic."

A SHORT HISTORY OF GERMAN LITERATURE.

By PROF. JAMES K. HOSMER,

Author of the “Color Guard," etc. One Volume, large 12mo, pp. 604. Price, $2.25. "Prof. Hosmer has done more than sketch the Literature of a remarkable nation-he has attempted, as Taine did in his English Literature,' a short history of the nation itself. It is done with learning, diligence, good temper, and good judgment. Prof. HOSMER writes in an easy, well-informed style. He describes with force and point. The biok will be as. good introduction to German Literature for those who have read little, a guide to those who wish to read more, and a refresher of the memory to such as are already familiar with the books and authors of whom he treats—as well as with the national character which he displays historically.”—Spring field Republican.

"We like the book wonderfully, and we assure our readers that we believe they will like it better than can be indicated by the terms in which we here speak of it—terms so excessive indeed that the book must be read to vindicate us for using them." — St. Louis Evening Post.
