SIR EDWARD'S WIFE.
One vol., crown 8vo. [Just out.
By F. E. BUNNETT.
One vol., crown 8vo. “Linked at Last' contains so much of pretty description, natural incident, and delicate portraiture, that the reader who once takes it up will not be inclined to relinquish it without concluding the volume.”Morning Post.
“A very charming story.”—John Bull.
By J. MASTERMAN. Two vols., crown 8vo. Second Edition. “A thoroughly wholesome and fairly interesting tale. So natural are the characters, that the book possesses that air of probability which is an important element in a good novel, and calls out sympathies which a more pretentious, more romantic, and consequently more improbable tale, would fail to awaken.
We can honestly recommend our readers to order ‘Half a Dozen Daughters' from the Circulating Library, and can also say of it, that which can but rarely be said of the novels of the day, that it is a work which the most careful mother may confidently place in the hands of her own daughters.”— Athenæum.
“One of those pretty, healthy, natural books which remind one of a breezy day in the country
a charming little story, besides having the recommendation of being short and compactly put together.” Saturday Review,
Three vols., crown 8vo. [Just out. 65, Cornhill, London.

CRUEL AS THE GRAVE.
Three vols., crown 8vo. Jealousy is cruel as the Grave." “The Wise Man's motto is prefixed to an interesting, though somewhat tragic story, by the Countess von Bothmer.
Her German prince, with his chivalrous affection, his disinterested patriotism, and his soldierlike sense of duty, is no unworthy type of a national character which has lately given the world many instances of old-fashioned heroism."-Atheneum.
“This graceful story-tender and gay, with the sweetest tenderness and the brightest gaiety, -whether pathetic or satirical, is always natural and never dull.
The perusal of Cruel as the Grave' will amply repay its readers.”—Morning Post.
VI. HER TITLE OF HONOUR. By HOLME LEE. One vol., crown 8vo. (Second Edition.) “ It is unnecessary to recommend tales of Holme Lee's, for they are well known, and all more or less liked. But this book far exceeds even our favourites, Sylvan Holt's Daughter, Kathie Brande, and Thorney Hall, because with the interest of a pathetic story is united the value of a definite and high purpose.”– Spectator.
Two vols., crown 8vo. [Immediately.
