I. GARTH. A Novel. By JULIAN HAWTHORNE, author of “Bressant," etc. I vol., 8vo. Paper
covers, $1.00; cloth, $1.50. “Garth'is Mr. Julian Hawthorne's most elaborate and pretentious book. It is on many accounts also his best book, though it contains nothing so good as the character of the hero in ‘Bressant.' At least his genius is unmistakable."-New York World.
II. AFTER MANY DAYS. A Novel. By CHRISTIAN Reid, author of “Morton House,”
“ Valerie Aylmer," etc. I vol., 8vo. Paper covers, $1.00. "After Many Days" is marked by those characteristics that have made the name of Christian Reid distinguished-flowing style, charm and contrast of character, dramatic situations, and effective development of plot. The scene is laid partly in the South and partly in England, while its narrative exhibits notable variety of incident and strength of interest.

1,75 III. TWO LILIES. A Novel. By Julia Kavanagh, author of “ Nathalie,” “ Beatrice,” etc.
I vol., 12mo. Paper covers, 50 cents; cloth, $1.25. “Miss Kavanagh's well-written story introduces us at the outset to the picturesque street-architecture of an ancient Norman town. In such a scene, Edward Graham, the architect, is naturally entranced. But beauties of a more alluring type soon present themselves. The rival Lilies are admirably contrasted. Miss Scot, who is a blonde, cold by the necessities of her position as the eldest of a tribe of daughters, with a mother of the purposeless Mrs. Nickleby kind, alive to worldly, advantages, and not inclined to sacrifice what seems her duty to imperious passion, wins his allegiance. But the other Lily, a dark, somewhat spoiled child of a somewhat magnificent widowed father, has meanwhile learned to love him with the affection of girlhood.
There is a good deal of skill in the manner in which the reader's interest is fixed to what appears to be a final failure of all hope that matters will be solved successfully, and the happy issue is so much desired that it does not strike one as unnatural. There are some strong minor characters." -London Athenaum.
By the author of “Aunt Margaret's Trouble.” BLACK SPIRITS AND WHITE. By FRANCES ELEANOR TROLLOPE, author of
“A Charming Fellow,” etc. 8vo. 75 cents. “This clever, pleasant, and eminently readable novel."-Truth.
"A bright, clever, and most readable novel. In the delineation of character Mrs. Trollope excels. Sir Cosmo Lowry and his wife are excellent, and Mary Lowry is charmingly drawn."-World. "May be recommended as decidedly readable.”—Saturday Review.
V. JOAN. A Novel. By RHODA BROUGHTON, author of “ Cometh Up as a Flower," “ Red as a Rose
is She," etc. I vol., 8vo. Paper covers, 75 cents. “We believe that, with one exception, this authoress may be classed as the most popular writer of fiction of her sex.
The reasons are manifold: in her stories the plot is ever simple, but yet of intense interest; her ideal characters are sketched with con. summate skill; they are never crowded on the mimic scene, yet thus afford contrasts that vividly attract the reader's imagination; added to this, a bright, witty dialogue, a charming descriptive power, and a great depth of pathos, and we have summed up the attributes that distinguish Rhoda Broughton."-N. Y. Albion.
VI. THE SHADOW OF THE SWORD. A Romance. By Robert BUCHANAN. I
vol., 8vo. Paper covers, 75 cents. “Mr. Buchanan is a poet, and this romance may be to some extent regarded as a prose poem. The pictures with which the story abounds are bright with the fancy that finds its most natural expression in verse; the coloring is that of a poetical artist, and the weird-like imagination which throws its lurid light upon one page, and the blackness of a great cloud upon another, is that of a nan who has seen visions and dreamt dreams. Readers will not be disappointed, if they are willing for a season to exchange the realism of modern fiction for the poetical conceptions, the exciting incidents, the strong passions, an glowing fancy, that belong to high romance."-London Spectator.
“Wild, striking, and animated with much of the poetry of the rugged Breton coast, where the scene is laid.” -Illustrated London News.
“A weird and powerful romance."-Figaro.
