This will be an agreeable surprise to all. The manuscript of above, after the author's decease, was held by his daughter, Mrs. M. A. Wade, and the publisher congratulates himself on having secured Col. Thompson's last and what has already been pronounced his best book.

Besides the story which gives the title ("John's Alive; or, The Bride of a Ghost"), the book contains Recollections of the Florida Campaign against the Seminole Indians, in which he participated. Here his humor shows to good advantage the funny fellows, Patrick Fagan and Phelim O'Brien, often making the reader laugh outright, even when his sympathies are with the soldiers in their hardships.

The book will undoubtedly have a large sale, and, as the first edition is already more than half sold, the trade is requested to send in orders as early as possible.

Paper, 75 cents; Cloth, $1.25.

By SIDNEY LANIER, author of "The Science of English Verse," The Boys' Froissart," etc. I vol. crown 8vo, $2.

[ocr errors]

Mr. Lanier inquires, "What is that special relation of the novel to modern man, by virtue of which it has become a paramount literary form?" In answering the query, he traces the growth of human personality from schylus, through Plato, Socrates, the contemporary Greek mind, through the Renaissance, Shakspere, Richardson, and Fielding, down to Dickens and to George Eliot, in whom the numerous threads are gathered into one. The portion of the work directly concerned with the modern novel is very largely devoted to a critical, yet loving, study of the last-named author and her works, accompanied by copious extracts. The book is in all respects fresh and enjoyable, and discusses the latest problems of literature as presented in the writings of Zola and Whitman, and other topics of present interest, that have a bearing upon the more general subject.



With Special Relation to the Usages of the Pulpit. By Prof. AUSTIN PHELPS, D.D., author of "The Theory of Preaching,' Men and Books," etc. I vol. 12mo, $2.



Although Professor Phelps' books were all originally composed with a view to a clerical audience, they are too large in their scope to be confined to any one class of readers. "English Style" is especially broad and comprehensive, and it is particularly fascinating from its stories of happy illustrations, and its frequent discussions of matters that every one is interested in, but which few are competent to decide for themselves; such as the comparative value and distinguishing excellences of the great dictionaries, the use of certain words and idioms, and a thousand kindred topics. By far the greater part of the volume relates to English style in its widest acceptation, and the entire work is the most systematic treatise upon the subject ever made by an American writer.



I vol. 12mo, $1.50.

Mr. Wilkinson's volume of collected poems is characterized by variety in form and in tone. The domestic affections, friendship, the relation of teacher and pupil, descriptions of nature, patriotism, narrative, and religion, form some of the classes under which the poems included might appropriately be distributed. Several of the poems included have found their way into different popular poetical anthologies.

CHARLES SCRIBNER'S SONS publish to-day Sidney Lanier's lectures on "The English Novel, and the Principle of its Development." The author in determining the special relation of the novel to modern man, by virtue of which it has become a paramount literary form, traces the growth of human personality from Eschylus,. through Plato, Socrates, to contemporary Greek: 532 mind, through the Renaissance, Shakespeare, 529 Richardson, and Fielding down to Dickens and 534 George Eliot in whom the numerous threads are 526 gathered into one. The portion of the work di534 rectly concerned with the modern novel is very 534 largely devoted to a critical, yet loving study of 535 George Eliot and her works, accompanied by 530 copious extracts. The book is in all respects fresh and enjoyable and cannot fail of a warm welcome. They also publish an interesting, not to say valuable work in Professor Austin Phelps' English Style in Public Discourse, with Special Relation to the Usages of the Pulpit ;" also a vol-、 ume of the poems of William Cleaver Wilkinson. G. P. PUTNAM'S SONS have just published Isabella L. Bird's (Mrs. Bishop) new book of travels entitled "The Golden Chersonese and the Way Thither." This volume forms the last 536 instalment of Mrs. Bishop's travels in the Far East in 1879, and treats only of the western 514 portion of Malacca, "for the very sufficient reason, as the author states in her preface, "that the interior is unexplored by Europeans, half of it being actually so little known that the latest map gives only the position of its under British rule. The volume is quite as incoast line," notwithstanding that it is practically teresting as her previous ones, and is also fully illustrated. They have also just ready "King. series, by William Sime; a curious speculation Capital,' a new novel in the Trans-Atlantic
