SONGS OF TWO WORLDS.

By a New Writer.

* There is genuine beauty in his work-bright pure thoughts and tender fancies." -Scotsman.

XII.
THE INN OF STRANGE MEETINGS,
AND OTHER POEMS. By MORTIMER COLLINS.

Crown 8vo, 55: Mr. Collins has an undercurrent of chivalry and romance beneath the trifling vein of good humoured banter which is the special characteristic of his verse.

The 'Inn of Strange Meetings' is a sprightly piece.”—Athenæum.

“Mr. Mortimer Collins's new volume will please thousands of old friends, and win him hundreds of new.

The poem which gives its name to the book is vigorous and graceful withal ; has many pretty conceits, and possesses a healthy tone. -Standard.

XIII.
ASPROMONTE, AND OTHER POEMS.

Second Edition, cloth, 4s. 6d. “ The volume is anonymous; but there is no reason for the author to be ashamed of it.

“The verse is fluent and free.”—Spectator.

“We mention the book for its uncommon lyrical power and deep poetic feeling.”Literary Churchman.

The poems are nearly all worthy of preservation,”-Nonconformist.
