SPEECHES DELIVERED IN INDIA, 1884-8. INCLUDING THAT AT "THE ST. ANDREW'S DINNER."

By the MARQUIS OF DUFFERIN AND AVA.

8vo. 9s.

"We earnestly commend the perusal of these speeches to the English reader. They are the best possible antidote for the rashness, ignorance, and folly which are the too common characteristics of amateur criticism of Indian politics. They are, moreover, agreeable reading; for Lord Dufferin, serious and well considered as are his observations, is never dull, and, whenever occasion permits, breaks away into a light-heartedness that reminds us that he is a true Irishman, and that the Sheridan blood flows in his veins. His touch is light; his spirits are gay; his fancy plays at ease. Whenever, for a moment, the senatorial purple is thrown aside, we perceive the courteous, kindly gentleman, sincerely pleased with the world in which he has played so distinguished a part, and the men and women whom his genial disposition and charming manners have bound to himself in the firm allegiance of personal affection. He is proud of his country, of his class, of his past good fortune, and—as he takes every opportunity of announcing—of his wife."—Saturday Review.

"In this charming collection there are not many speeches which compare in importance and oratorical elevation with the brilliant orations and despatches of Lord Dufferin's Canadian administration; but we have a volume abounding in light on Indian history and rich in hereditary refinement of diction and vivacity of perception.... The actual condition of the Indian Empire at the time Lord Dufferin became Viceroy, and the healing influence his personality exercised upon the inflammation produced by many attempts to exploit India for party purposes, constitute some of Lord Dufferin's strongest claims to recognition among the great men who have made the English name renowned in the Indian world."—Observer.

OUR VICEREGAL LIFE IN INDIA.

BEING A SELECTION FROM MY JOURNAL DURING THE YEARS 1884-8.

By THE MARCHIONESS OF DUFFERIN AND AVA.

Fourth Thousand. With Portrait & Map. 2 Vols. Crown 8vo. 24s.

"All who understand and sympathise with Indian life will hasten to read these two pleasant volumes. The journal is a running commentary on the multitudinous events which must crowd into such years as she passed in India, and is none the less pleasant for its simplicity and unpretentiousness. Perhaps the visit which Lady Dufferin paid to Burmah three years ago will attract as much attention as any other part of her travels."—Daily Telegraph.

A SOUTHERN PLANTER.

By SUSAN DABNEY SMEDES.

Crown 8vo. 7s. 6d.

"The book is eminently worthy of the great attention it has received. It puts the case of the Southern planters in a very rational and most interesting light. It may be described as the very antipodes to 'Uncle Tom's Cabin.' The picture of the rich, affluent patriarchal life, with woodlands, pastures and countless flocks, the master exercising paternal care over the slaves, and the planter's wife, working harder for her slaves than any slave could work, is extremely interesting and attractive. Then we have some striking pictures of the war between Federals and Confederates, and of the tremendous results. But the main charm of the book is the character of Thomas Dabney himself, who might, as a reality, be compared with some famous characters in fiction, with the Doctor Primrose of Goldsmith, or the Pre Madelon of Victor Hugo.... Mr. Gladstone has done well in drawing attention to his character and his story."—Literary Churchman.

FOUR YEARS' TRAVELS IN AUSTRALIA.

AND CAMP LIFE WITH THE ABORIGINES OF QUEENSLAND.

By CARL LUMHOLTZ, M.A.,

Member of the Royal Society of Science of Norway.

With Maps, Coloured Plates and 120 Illustrations. Medium 8vo. 24s.

"Mr. Lumholtz has a very pleasant and modest style of narrative, so that the whole book is as agreeable as it is instructive; but the portion most attractive from its novelty is that which details his proceeding when, for nearly a year, he lived alone among 'a race of people whose culture—if, indeed, they can be said to have any culture whatever—must be characterised as the lowest to be found among the whole genus homo sapiens.' The volume is one of the most complete of its kind in all respects, and a worthy record of the steadfast enterprise of a hardy Norseman in the Scientific Age. It should be specially remarked that he effaces himself more than most travellers; yet we can infer from the style and fine temper of his narrative that he belongs to the higher class of scientific explorers."—Spectator.

DRAMATIC OPINIONS.

By MRS. KENDAL.

Post 8vo. 1s.

* * * * *

A NATURALIST'S VOYAGE ROUND THE WORLD.

By CHARLES DARWIN, F.R.S.,

WITH MAPS AND UPWARDS OF 100 ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE PLACES VISITED AND DESCRIBED.

Chiefly from Sketches taken on the Spot by ROBERT TAYLOR PRITCHETT. Medium 8vo. 21s.

*.* The object of this edition is to aid the author's description by actual representations of the most interesting places and objects of Natural History referred to in them. This has been effected by securing the service of an artist who has visited the countries which Darwin describes.

"This is an edition de luxe of the first work written by our great naturalist. Anybody who has read it is not likely to have forgotten it. It is a kind of natural history 'Robinson Crusoe.' It was during that famous voyage that Darwin made the observations and laid the foundation for his famous theory of Natural Selection. The present edition is by far the best and most attractive hitherto published. The illustrations are artistic in the highest degree, as everybody will understand when he knows they are by the artist of Lady Brassey's 'Sunbeam.' Most of them are from sketches made on the spot by Mr. Pritchett, with Darwin's book by his side."—Science Gossip.

* * * * *

THE BATTLE ABBEY ROLL

WITH SOME ACCOUNT OF THE NORMAN LINEAGES.

By the DUCHESS OF CLEVELAND.

3 Vols. Small 4 to. 48s.

"These handsome volumes are a solid monument to the industry and learning of the Author. On the whole the book is very much above the average of Antiquarian productions. The accounts of the leading families are given with accuracy and generally in an interesting manner. The three volumes are evidently a labour of love, and reflect no little credit on the industry, the knowledge and the capacity of their Author."—Guardian, May, 1890.

* * * * *

THE VIKING AGE.

THE EARLY HISTORY, MANNERS, AND CUSTOMS OF THE ANCESTORS OF THE ENGLISH-SPEAKING NATIONS.

ILLUSTRATED FROM THE ANTIQUITIES DISCOVERED IN MOUNDS, CAIRNS, AND BOGS, AS WELL, AS FROM THE ANCIENT SAGAS AND EDDAS.

By PAUL B. DU CHAILLU.

Author of "Explorations in Equatorial Africa," "Land of the Midnight Sun," &c.

With 1360 Illustrations. 2 Vols. 8vo. 42s.

"There is in these volumes a collection of evidence and illustration of a great and important chapter in human life, which is nowhere else to be found in such a ready and convenient form."—Guardian.

THE RAILWAYS OF AMERICA.

THEIR CONSTRUCTION, DEVELOPMENT, MANAGEMENT, AND APPLIANCES.

By VARIOUS WRITERS.

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY THOMAS M. COOLEY.

Chairman of the Inter-State Commerce Commission. With Maps, Charts, and 200 Illustrations. (480 pp.) Large 8vo. 31s. 6d.

"There is far more of interest and information in the book than we have been able to allude to; and it is perhaps not entirely unsatisfactory to the English reader to find, on the authority of the Americans themselves, that with all their energy and inventiveness, we are obviously still ahead of them in the art of rendering railway travelling at once speedy and safe, and in general principles and details. American engineers are behind no others of this epoch in talent and resource, but American railway working seems not yet to have surmounted the drawbacks arising from an inherently loose system of construction and working, fixed upon it at the outset by the desire for economy and by the lack of that feeling of responsibility for public safety which seems much more developed in the English character in connexion with public works of this kind. England has the credit of having invented the railway system, with all its vast consequences to the world, and we may be allowed as a nation to feel some pardonable pride in the assurance that in its working and management we are still in front of all other nations."—The Builder.

* * * * *

THE RAILWAYS OF ENGLAND.

By W.M. ACWORTH.

Fourth Edition. With 56 Illustrations. 8vo. 14s.

CONTENTS:—

NORTH WESTERN. MIDLAND. GREAT NORTHERN. MANCHESTER, SHEFFIELD, & LINCOLN. NORTH EASTERN. SOUTH WESTERN. GREAT WESTERN. GREAT EASTERN. BRIGHTON & SOUTH COAST. CHATHAM & DOVER. SOUTH EASTERN.

"Although most people have some conception and experience of the miracle of the age known as the railway, there are few who have even a general understanding of it, and fewer still who possess definite knowledge of its ramifications and details. Some such summary as Mr. Acworth gives is requisite to convey a real and lasting impression of the immensity of the organization and its daily effect upon the present conditions of life."—Birmingham Daily Gazette.

BY THE SAME AUTHOR.

THE RAILWAYS OF SCOTLAND.

THEIR PRESENT POSITION, WITH A GLANCE AT THEIR PAST, AND A FORECAST OF THEIR FUTURE.

With a Map of the Scottish Railway System. Crown 8vo. 5s.

"Mr. Acworth has lost no time in following up his interesting book on English railways with a very readable companion volume. This is a concise review of the past history of Scottish railway enterprise, and a suggestive survey of the present outlook, with its notable activity of competition and exploitation. From both aspects Mr. Acworth's book, with its admirable map of existing lines and lines in progress, is eminently satisfactory. Burning questions of amalgamation or of competitive and retaliatory policies are treated with discretion. They are discussed, as was inevitable, but discussed within sober and proper bounds."—Saturday Review.

* * * * *

THE ENGLISH POOR.

A SKETCH OF THEIR SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC HISTORY.

By THOMAS MACKAY.

Crown 8vo. 7s. 6d.

"To any one, be he gentle or simple, who wishes to understand how deep are the problems opening before the man who would administer the poor law wisely and beneficently, we can honestly commend this book of Mr. Mackay's. For ourselves, we have derived much pleasure and not a little instruction from its perusal."—St. James's Gazette.

* * * * *

A HANDBOOK TO THE DEATH DUTIES

By SYDNEY BUXTON, M.P., AND GEORGE STAPYLTON BARNES, Barrister-at-Law.

Post 8vo. 3s. 6d.

* * * * *

A NATURALIST IN NORTH CELEBES;

A NARRATIVE OF TRAVELS IN MINAHASSA, THE SANGIR AND TALAUT ISLANDS,

WITH NOTICES OF THE FAUNA, FLORA, AND ETHNOLOGY OF THE DISTRICTS VISITED.

By SYDNEY J. HICKSON, M.A. (Cantab.), D.Sc. (Lond.), F.Z.S., Fellow of Downing College, Camb.

With 2 Maps and 36 Illustrations. 8vo. 16s.

"Dr. Hickson ranks as the naturalist-historian of Malay Archipelago, and is an undoubted authority on corals and the general fauna of tropical seas. But he is more than a naturalist—he is an ethnologist and a folklorist of high value. This work is a valuable, conscientious, and pleasantly written addition to the libraries of all who, with 'Childe Harold,' 'converse with Nature's charms, and view her shores unrolled.' The maps are of especial value."—Daily Telegraph.

* * * * *

THE LAND OF MANFRED.

RAMBLES IN APULIA AND OTHER REMOTE PARTS OF SOUTHERN ITALY, WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THEIR HISTORICAL ASSOCIATIONS.

By JANET ROSS.

Author of "Three Generations of Englishwomen."

With Map and Illustrations. Crown 8vo. 10s. 6d.

"A charming little volume. Many of the towns along the coast were visited by Mrs. Ross, and the leading events connected with their history are very graphically described. These pages of Mrs. Ross's will undoubtedly tempt many of her compatriots to visit this fair unknown land, to its and the traveller's benefit."—Nature.

* * * * *

THE PHYSIOLOGY OF INDUSTRY;

BEING AN EXPOSURE OF CERTAIN FALLACIES IN EXISTING THEORIES OF ECONOMICS.

By A.F. MUMMERY and J.A. HOBSON.

Crown 8vo. 6s.

"This is one of the most remarkable contributions to the economic controversy lately seen. The authors set themselves out as antagonistic to most of the received theories, and especially to controvert Mill's position that 'saving enriches, and spending impoverishes the community along with the individual.' The argument is full of acute observation, and the industrial process, as we may call it, is exposed to a careful scientific dissection.... The volume is eminently readable and valuable."—North British Economist.

* * * * *

THE GREAT SILVER RIVER, AND THE ARGENTINE STATES, AS A FIELD FOR BRITISH SETTLERS.

NOTES OF A RESIDENCE IN BUENOS AYRES.

By Sir HORACE RUMBOLD, Bart., K.C.M.G.

* * * * *

COMEDY OF A COUNTRY HOUSE.

A NOVEL.

By JULIAN STURGIS, Author of "John a Dreams," "John Maidment," &c.

Popular Edition. Crown 8vo. 6s.

"Mr. Sturgis has a charming manner of writing social comedy. His touch is light and graceful."—Morning Post.

"Mr. Julian Sturgis is a very clever man, and there is so much cleverness in his 'Comedy of a Country House,' that no reader who knows good work when he sees it, can fail to render hearty and ungrudging admiration. The true tone of comedy is, on the whole, admirably maintained."—Spectator.

* * * * *

PLAIN FRANCES MOWBRAY,

AND OTHER TALES.

By the HON. EMILY LAWLESS.

Author of "Major Lawrence."

Post 8vo. 6s.

"Miss Lawless has succeeded in the difficult task of producing a volume of detached stories not inferior in value to her more important works."—Morning Post.

"We perceive the same masterly and original analysis of character, the same truth of description as in the very remarkable story of West of Ireland life by which the author is best known."—Pall Mall Gazette.

* * * * *

"Not one of the shilling monthlies has better maintained its early promise than Murray's Magazine."—Scotsman.

"A masterly book. Strong, sound, mature, able thought from its first page to its last."—Spectator.

MAJOR LAWRENCE, F.L.S.

A NOVEL.

By the HON. EMILY LAWLESS.

Author of "Hurrish."

Popular Edition. Post 8vo. 6s.

"We part with great regret from Miss Lawless' striking novel 'Major Lawrence.' While there is no new plot under the sun, there are infinite varieties of treatment, whence it is that Miss Lawless is so admirable in her work. Her characters live and breathe and impress us. We shall anxiously look for more of her work."—Guardian.

"It was not an easy task to write a novel like 'Major Lawrence, F.L.S.' ... but in our judgment Miss Lawless has completely succeeded.... altogether there have been few stories published this season which may be read with such sincere pleasure, or studied with more profit."—Academy.

* * * * *

BUDDHISM.

ITS CONNEXION WITH BRAHMANISM AND HINDUISM, AND ITS CONTRAST WITH CHRISTIANITY.

By SIR MONIER WILLIAMS, K.C.I.E., D.C.L., &c.

Second Edition, revised. With Index and Illustrations. 8vo. 21s.

"Those who would study the subject fully, and it is well worth it, must go to the extremely able and carefully written book which Sir Monier Williams has produced. They will learn the relation of Buddhism to the earlier thoughts of India. They will have the details of the present faith and worship of Buddhists in different lands, with full accounts of the works, and beautifully engraved pictures of idols, temples and relics."—The Rock.

"It would have been difficult to have found a more thoroughly qualified exponent of the mysteries of Buddhism than Professor Monier Williams. Readers will find the story of Buddhism clearly told, both in its outward manifestations and its esoteric leading, in a volume made readable by capital type, and pleasant by many illustrations."—Guardian.

LIFE, WORKS, AND LETTERS OF ALEXANDER POPE.

INCLUDING MANY ORIGINAL PIECES, AND MORE THAN FOUR HUNDRED LETTERS NOW FIRST PUBLISHED.

Edited, with Introductions and Notes,

By CROKER, ELWIN, and COURTHOPE.

With Portraits and Index, 10 Vols. 8vo. 10s. 6d. each.

*.* The NEW LIFE is by W.J. COURTHOPE.

"This excellent edition of Pope supersedes all its predecessors, and to a study of Pope's life and works is absolutely indispensable. All that is valuable in the notes of previous editors is preserved. The new Prefaces and Notes contain an extraordinary amount of information, much of which appears for the first time. It is impossible to praise too highly the patient care and painstaking industry with which facts are sifted, omissions supplied, errors corrected."—Edinburgh Review.

"Though the life and works of the poet will still continue to be the battle-ground of students of English literature, no combatant can regard himself as adequately equipped for the contest who has not studied the suggestive criticism both of Pope's poetry and character, which is contained in Volume V. of this monumental edition."—The Quarterly Review.

* * * * *

THE OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS OF AN ASTRONOMER ON NATURE AND REVELATION.

By CHARLES PRITCHARD, D.D., Savilian Professor of Astronomy at Oxford.

Crown 8vo. 7s. 6d.

CONTINUITY OF THE SCHEMES OF NATURE AND REVELATION. NATURAL SCIENCE AND NATURAL RELIGION. ON THE RELATIONS OF MIRACLES TO THE LAWS OF NATURE. THE GREAT MIRACLE IN JOSHUA. A SOLUTION OF THE DIFFICULTIES IN GENESIS. THE SLOWNESS OF THE DIVINE PROCEEDINGS IN NATURE AND IN GRACE THE STAR AND THE MAGI.

"His (Prof. Pritchard) thoughts on such a subject must command attention, and these essays will well repay it.... Theologians are discussed here, by one who is both theologian and philosopher, with great learning and breadth of view and with equal courage and honesty.—Scotsman.

"Anything from Professor Pritchard's pen is sure to be received with thankfulness all round. This volume is in reality a series of discourses which he has given at various times and in divers places to the British Association, the Church Congress, &c. The book is distinguished by a fine and delicate fibre of originality and thoughtfulness, and is also very delightfully written."—Science Gossip.

* * * * *

THE WITNESS OF THE PSALMS TO CHRIST AND CHRISTIANITY.

By W. ALEXANDER, D.D., Lord Bishop of Derry and Raphoe.

Third Edition, revised. Crown 8vo. 9s.

"We thank the author for his beautiful and valuable treatise, which will open new views to many a pious student, give definiteness to the aspirations of many a devout soul, and be the means, we doubt not, of encouraging a more intelligent use of that Psalter which forms so large a part of our daily prayer and praise, and which is the best interpreter of the wants and feelings of the human soul, its deepest depths of grief, and its fullest and highest intuitions."—Literary Churchman.

THE MINISTER OF BAPTISM.

A HISTORY OF CHURCH OPINION FROM THE TIME OF THE APOSTLES.

ESPECIALLY WITH REFERENCE TO HERETICAL AND LAY ADMINISTRATION.

By Rev. WARWICK ELWIN, M.A. Curate of St. George's, Beckenham, Kent.

8vo. 12s.

"A book which is sure to become a standard work on the ministry of baptism ... It is a book which ought to be in the possession of every clergyman and educated layman. No library of theological works will be complete without it."—Scottish Guardian.

"Apart from its practical conclusions, Mr. Elwin's book is of the greatest value, and worthy of the highest praise. It fills a distinct gap in Church history, and forms most interesting reading. It is simply indispensable to the student of the subject."—British Weekly.

THE LIFE AND SCIENTIFIC WORKS OF SIR WILLIAM SIEMENS, F.R.S., CIVIL ENGINEER.

With Portrait and Illustrative Plates and Index. 4 Vols. 8vo. LIFE, 1 vol., 16s. WORKS, 3 vols., 12s. each.

"For many years Sir W. Siemens has been a regular attendant at our meetings, and to few, indeed, have they been more indebted for success. Whatever the occasion, he had always new and interesting ideas, put forth in language which a child could understand. It is no exaggeration to say that the life of such a man was spent in the public service."—LORD RAYLEIGH at British Association, 1884.

MURRAY'S HANDBOOK FOR TRAVELLERS IN ENGLAND & WALES.

ALPHABETICALLY ARRANGED. WITH DESCRIPTION OF PLACES, RAILWAY STATIONS, HOTELS, &c.

New and Revised Edition (1890). One Volume, with Map. Post 8vo. 12s.

"Murray's Handbooks have always been distinguished for the high quality of their literary and architectural information. In the volume before us under each place-name is given a description of the place, railway stations, hotels, and excursions best deserving of the traveller's attention. It will thus be seen that such information is given as will suffice for all ordinary purposes. The book is likely to be of as much use in the library as a handy gazetteer of home travel."—Literary World.

"This Handbook is a valuable companion to the traveller by road or rail throughout England. The places are all in alphabetical order as in a Gazetteer; only such names being given as belong to places of interest. This includes most places that anyone will care to learn about, and the book will, therefore, be a useful manual of reference for the library, no less than the pocket or travelling-bag."—The Bookseller.

The general plan of the book appears to be good, the practical utility of etymological information being much increased when words derived from the same source are brought together for comparison. The definitions are usually well expressed."—Athenum.

4 Vols. Medium 8vo. 6 16s. 6d.

"It is not too much to say that this work is the most solid contribution to the materials of theological study and of ecclesiastical history which our age has seen, and we doubt whether the clergy of any other branch of the Church Catholic could at this time produce a record of the earlier ages of Christianity so learned, so impartial, and so comprehensive. As it stands it does the highest honour to the clergy of the Church of England at the present day."—Edinburgh Review.

"We feel that this Commentary on the Apocrypha marks a distinct advance in English theological scholarship. We can hardly imagine that thirty or even twenty years ago anything of the kind would have been attempted."—Record.

"Dr. Wace and his able coadjutors have done their work in so thorough, scholarly, and workmanlike, luminous, and yet so readable a manner, that they have left little to be desired.

UNIVERSITY EXTENSION MANUALS.

The Series of University Extension Manuals, to be published by Mr. MURRAY, of Albemarle Street, London, under the Editorship of Professor KNIGHT, of the University of St. Andrews, is primarily designed to aid the University Extension movement throughout the country, and to supply the need so widely felt by Students, of Text-books for study and reference, in connection with the authorised Courses of Lectures.

These Manuals will differ from those already in existence in that they are not intended for School use, or for Examination purposes; and that their aim is to educate, rather than to inform. The enumeration of mere details will be avoided, except in so far as they illustrate the working of general laws, and the development of principles; while the historical evolution, both of the literary and scientific subjects, will be kept in view, as well as their philosophical significance. The class for whose use the Manuals are especially designed are those whose education has been hitherto somewhat miscellaneous or fragmentary, and who are desirous of pursuing systematic study in Literature, History, Science, and Art.

The remarkable success which has attended University Extension in England and Scotland has been partly due to the combination of scientific treatment with popularity, and the union of simplicity with thoroughness. The University Extension movement, however, can only reach those resident in the larger centres of population, while all over the country there are thoughtful persons who desire the same kind of teaching; and it is for them, as well as for the Extension Lecture Students, that this Series is designed. Its aim will be to supply to the public and to the general reader, the same kind of teaching as is given in the Lectures, to reflect the spirit which has characterised the movement, and to combine as the Lectures have done, the discussion of principles as well as of facts, and of methods along with results.

The Manuals will be issued simultaneously in England and America. Volumes dealing with separate sections of Literature, Science, Philosophy, History, and Art have already been assigned to representative literary men, to University Professors, or to Extension Lectures connected with Oxford, Cambridge, London, and the Universities of Scotland and Ireland.
