THE GREAT SENSATIONAL NOVEL OF
PARIS UNDER THE SECOND EMPIRE.
BY EMILE ZOLA.
“Helene; or, Une Page D'Amour." TRANSLATED FROM THE FRENCH BY JOHN STIRLING.
*nifor '* with all of * Zola's" and all of “Greville's" Books. “L'Assommoir" is one of the greatest novels ever printed, having already attained a sale in France of over One Hundred Thousand Copies, and it will no doubt attain as large a sale in this conntry. It will be found to be one of the most extraordinary works ever written, full of nature and of art, dramatic, narrative, and pictorial. In this translation, which has been toned down with great literary ability, combined with tact, delicacy and refinement, so that it could be placed in the hands of any Lady, and of the entire American Reading Public, vice is never made attractive, but as a picture of Paris life, springing from Intemperance, “L'Assomptoir" is without a rival, and it will do infinitely more good to the cause of Temperance and Total Abstinence, than all therfugjati

HENRY GREVILLE'S GREAT RUSSIAN NOVEL.
D. O U R N O F.
BY HENRY GREVILLE. AUTHOR OF " MARKOFF." * BONNE-MARIE," "DOSIA," "SAVELI'S EXPIATION,
" " PRETTI LITTLE COUNTESS ZINA," "MARRYING OIT A DAUGHTER," SONIA," "* PHILOMENE'S MARRIAGES, * A FEIEND,
GABRIELLE; OR, THE HOUSE OF MAUREZE."
* Dournof" was written in Russia during Madame Greville's residence in St. Petersburg, and is a graphic story of Russian life, containing careful studies of Russian character, which are most admirable. The story bears some resemblance to "Dosia," and to “ Pretty Little Countess Zin,” but is more interesting, all the characters being master-pieces of character drawing, while there is an ease and naturalness about each of the characters that makes the volume very entertaining and very enjoyable. One gets a good deal of valuable history, and of interesting facts pertaining to the people of Russia, from snch stories as "Dournof," every page of which shows the hand of a powerful and experienced author. "Henry Greville, indeed, is a charming and exquisite writer. Miss Marie Stewart, the translator, has done her work well, and in the most thorough manner, in the English version she has made of this powerful and most attractive story, Dournof."
Price 50 Cents in Paper Cover, or $1.00 in Morocco Cloth, Gilt and Black.

II. Thomas Carlyle ; His Life-his Books -his Theories. By ALFRED H. Guernsey. Paper cover, price, 30 cents; cloth, 60 cents. “One of the most enjoyable little books that we have lately happened to hit upon.
So entertaining that many readers will read through the two hundred prettily printed pages before they will be disposed to lay the book down. It is a very sympathetic and appreciative, a very just and careful study of Carlyle, as a man, a talker, and a writer, in brief as a social and literary force."—Boston Journal.
“A very charming piece of reading. It is very pleasantly written, and it contains just enongh to show the connection between and origin of fairy stories." -- New York World.
" It is a bright book in every way, and so charmingly constructed as to excite the attention of the student, as well as that of the mere superficial reader." —New York Express.
IV. “The Multitudinous Seas.” With Illustrations. By S. G. W. BENJAMIN. Paper, price, 25 cents.
“The Multitudinous Seas" is an eminently picturesque description of the ocean, with all its atmospheric phenomena, its aspects under calms and in storms, its strange currents and ever-changing surface, making a story as dramatic and stirring as a romance. ;
V. The Disturbing Element.
“It is a very bright and readable account of the doings of the Blue-bell Society of young ladies for mutual improve. ment; very delightful and original young ladies they are, and bent upon doing something for their minds, and getting them
to pass the Edinburgh examinations. How the scheme succeeded, the reader will learn, and be much amused in the process; perhaps the plan might have come to something but for the ‘Disturbing Element,' which it is impossible to legislate or frighten out of society.”-Hartford Courant.
VI. A Thorough Bohemienne.
"This is a clever story from the French, with all the spirit, the rapidity and clearness of narration, the firmness and precision of touch in character-drawing, the ease of manner and sense of mastery of materials and style, that make a really good French novel so fascinating."-Worcester Spy.

The New York Evening Post says: “If there were not a word of truth in it . . . it would deserve the widest possible popularity. The book has as much interest as any novel of adventure. : To this it adds all the charm of a veracious record of travel which it is, and travel through a strange land and among strange people. The story is told with admirable directness and force."
The London Academy says : “An amusing book, and for those who have never read any account of that strange country, Wanderings in Patagonia will be interesting from the first page to the last."
