HARPER'S LIBRARY OF SELECT NOVELS.
"THE LIBRARY OF SELECT NOVELS" has become an institution, a reliable and unfailing recreative resource essential to the comfort of countless readers. The most available entertainment of modern times is fiction: from the cares of busy life, from the monotonous routine of a special vocation, in the intervals of business and in hours of depression, a good story, with faithful descriptions of nature, with true pictures of life, with authentic characterization, lifts the mind out of the domain of care, refreshes the feelings, and enlists the imagination. The Harpers' "Library of Select Novels" is rapidly approaching its four hundredth number, and it is safe to say that no series of books exists which combines attractiveness and economy, local pictures and beguiling narrative, to such an extent and in so convenient a shape. In railway-cars and steamships, in boudoirs and studios, libraries and chimney corners, on verandas and in private sanctums, the familiar brown covers are to be seen. These books are enjoyed by all classes; they appear of an average merit, and with a constant succession that is marvelous; and in subject and style offer a remarkable variety. —Boston Transcript.

THE DOMESTIC LIFE of THOMAS JEFFERSON.
Compiled From FAMILY LETTERS AND REMINISCENCES
By His Great-Granddaughter,
SARAH N. RANDOLPH.
Crown 8vo, Illuminated Cloth, Beveled Edges, $2 50.
This volume brings the life of Jefferson in a brief space within the reach of all. While not writing of him as of the great man or statesman, Miss Randolph has given sufficient outline of the contemporary public events, especially of those in which Jefferson was engaged, to make the history of his times sufficiently clear. Her object, however, she says, has been to give a faithful picture of Jefferson as he was in private life, and for this she was particularly well fitted. Her biography is so artless, so frank, and so uncolored, differing so completely from the lives of public men as generally written. * * * This extremely interesting volume. —Richmond Whig.
One of the most charming and entertaining of books, and its pages will be a source of continual surprise and pleasure to those who, while admiring the statesman, have had their admiration tempered by the belief that he was a demagogue, a libertine, a gamester, and a scoffer at religion. The age in which Jefferson lived was one in which political rancors and animosities existed with no less bitterness than in our later day, and in which, moreover, mutual abuse and malignant recrimination were indulged in with equal fury and recklessness. Charges were made against Jefferson, by his political opponents, that clung to his good name and sullied it, making it almost a by-word of shame, and its owner a man whose example was to be shunned. The prejudices and calumnies then born have existed down to the present day; but the mists of evil report that have hemmed his life and his memory about are now clearing away, and this sunny book will dispel the last shadow they have cast, and will display the maligned victim of party hate in his true character—as a fond, an amiable, and a simple-hearted father; a firm friend; a truly moral and God-fearing citizen, and one of those few great men who have had the rare fortune to be likewise good men. —Boston Saturday Evening Gazette.
The author of this charming book has had access to the best possible sources of information concerning the private character of Mr. Jefferson, embracing both the written testimony of his correspondence and the oral testimony of family tradition. From these materials, guided by a profound reverence for the subject, the writer has constructed a most interesting personal biography. * * * A most agreeable addition to American literature, and will revive the memory of a patriot who merits the respect and gratitude of his countrymen. —Philadelphia Age.
This handsome volume is a valuable acquisition to American history. It brings to the public observation many most interesting incidents in the life of the third President; and the times and men of the republic's beginnings are here portrayed in a glowing and genial light. The author, in referring to the death-scenes of Jefferson, reports sentiments from his lips which contradict the current opinion that the writer of the Declaration of Independence was an infidel. We are glad to make this record in behalf of truth. Young people would find this book both entertaining and instructive. Its style is fresh and compact. Its pages are full of tender memories. The great man whose career is so charmingly pictured belongs to us all. —Methodist Recorder.
There is no more said of public matters in it than is absolutely necessary to make it clear and intelligible; but we have Jefferson, the man and the citizen, the husband, the father, the agriculturist, and the neighbor—the man, in short, as he lived in the eyes of his relatives, his closest friends, and his most intimate associates. He is the Virginian gentleman at the various stages of his marvelous career, and comes home to us as a being of flesh and blood, and so his story gives a series of lively pictures of a manner of existence that has passed away, or that is so passing, for they are more conservative at the South, socially speaking, than are we at the North, though they live so much nearer the sun than we ever can live. * * * We can commend this book to every one who would know the main facts of Mr. Jefferson's public career, and those of his private life. It is the best work respecting him that has been published, and it is not so large as to repel even indolent or careless readers. It is, too, an ornamental volume, being not only beautifully printed and bound, but well illustrated. * * * Every American should own the volume. —Boston Traveller.
A charmingly compiled and written book, and it has to do with one of the very greatest men of our national history. There is scarcely one on the roll of our public men who was possessed of more progressive individuality, or whose character will better repay study, than Thomas Jefferson, and this biography is a great boon. —N. Y. Evening Mail.
Both deeply interesting and valuable. The author has displayed great tact and taste in the selection of her materials and its arrangement. —Richmond Dispatch.
A charming book. —New Orleans Times.
It is a series of delightful home pictures, which present the hero as he was familiarly known to his family and his best friends, in his fields, in his library, at his table, and on the broad verandah at Monticello, where all the sweetest flavors of his social nature were diffused. His descendant does not conceal the fact that she is proud of her great progenitor; but she is ingenious, and leaves his private letters mostly to speak for themselves. It has been thought that "a king is never a hero to his valet," and the proverb has been considered undeniable; but this volume shows that Jefferson, if not exactly the "hero" to whom a little obscurity is so essential, was at least warmly loved and enthusiastically esteemed and admired by those who knew him best. The letters in this volume are full of interest, for they are chiefly published for the first time now. They show a conscientious gentleman, not at all given to personal indulgences, quick in both anger and forgiveness, the greatest American student of his time, excepting the cold-blooded Hamilton, absolutely without formality, but particular and exacting in the extreme—just the man who carried his wife to the White House on the pillion of his gray mare, and showed a British embassador the door for an offense against good-breeding. —Chicago Evening Post.
The reader will recognize the calm and philosophic yet earnest spirit of the thinker, with the tenderness and playful amiability of the father and friend. The letters can not but shed a favorable light on the character of perhaps the best-abused man of his time. —N. Y. Evening Post.
No attempt is made in this volume to present its subject as a public man or as a statesman. It is simply sought to picture him as living in the midst of his domestic circle. And this it is which will invest the book with interest for all classes of readers, for all who, whatever their politics, can appreciate the beauty of a pure, loving life. * * * It is written in an easy, agreeable style, by a most loving hand, and, perhaps, better than any other biography extant, makes the reader acquainted with the real character of a man whose public career has furnished material for so much book-making. —Philadelphia Inquirer.
The perusal of this interesting volume confirms the impression that whatever criticisms may be brought to bear upon the official career of Mr. Jefferson, or his influence upon the politics of this country, there was a peculiar charm in all the relations of his personal and social life. In spite of the strength of his convictions, which he certainly often expressed with an energy amounting to vehemence, he was a man of rare sunniness of temperament and sweetness of disposition. He had qualities which called forth the love of his friends no less than the hatred of his opponents. His most familiar acquaintance cherished the most ardent admiration of his character. His virtues in the circle of home won the applause even of his public adversaries. —N. Y. Tribune.
It lifts up the curtain of his private life, and by numerous letters to his family allows us to catch a glimpse of his real nature and character. Many interesting reminiscences have been collected by the author and are presented to the reader. —Boston Commercial Bulletin.
These letters show him to have been a loving husband, a tender father, and a hospitable gentleman. —Presbyterian.
Jefferson was not only eloquent in state papers, but he was full of point and clearness amounting to wit in his minor correspondence. —Albany Argus.
It is the record of the life of one of the most extraordinary men of any age or country. —Richmond Inquirer.
With the public life of Thomas Jefferson the public is familiar, as without it no adequate knowledge is possible of the history of Virginia or of the United States. Its guiding principles and great events, as likewise its smallest details, have long been before the world in the "Jefferson Papers," and in the laborious history of Randall. But to a full appreciation of the politician, the statesman, the publicist, and the thinker, there was still wanting some complete and correct knowledge of the man and his daily life amidst his family. This want Miss Randolph has endeavored most successfully to supply. As scarcely one of the founders of the republic had warmer friends, or exerted a deeper and a wider influence upon the country, so scarcely one encountered more bitter animosity or had to live down slander more envenomed. Truth conquered in the end, and the foul rumors, engendered in partisan conflicts, against the private life of Jefferson have long shrunk into silence in the light of his fame. Nevertheless, it is well done of his descendant thus to place before the world his life as in his letters and his conversation it appeared from day to day to those nearest and dearest to him. Nor is it a matter of small value to bring to our sight the interior life of our ancestors as it is delineated in the letters of Jefferson, touching incidently on all the subjects of dress, food, manners, amusements, expenditures, occupations—in brief, neglecting nothing of what the men of those days were and thought and did. It is of such materials that consist the pictures of history whose gaunt outlines of battles, sieges, coronations, dethronements, and parliaments are of little worth without the living and breathing details of everyday existence. * * * The author has happily performed her task, never obtruding her own presence upon the reader, careful only to come forward when necessary to explain some doubtful point or to connect the events of different dates. She may be congratulated upon the grace with which she has both written and forborne to write, never being beguiled by the vanity of authorship or that too great care which is the besetting sin of biography. —Petersburg Daily Index.
It is a highly interesting book, not only as a portraiture of the domestic life of Jefferson, but as a side view of the parties and politics of the day, witnessed in our country seventy years ago. The correspondence of the public characters at that period will be read with special interest by those who study the early history of our government. —Richmond Christian Observer.
In the unrestrained confidence of family correspondence, nature has always full sway, and the revelations presented in this book of Mr. Jefferson's real temper and opinions, unrestrained or unmodified by the caution called for in public documents, make the work not only valuable but entertaining. —N. Y. World.
The author has done her work with a loving hand, and has made a most interesting book. —N. Y. Commercial Advertiser.
It gives a picture of his private life, which it presents in a most favorable light, calculated to redeem Jefferson's character from many, if not all, the aspersions and slanders which, in common with most public characters, he had to endure while living. —New Bedford Standard.
The letters of Jefferson are models of epistolary composition—easy, graceful, and simple. —New Bedford Mercury.
The book is a very good picture of the social life not only of himself but of the age in which he lived. —Detroit Post.
One of the most charming memoirs of the day. —N. Y. Times.
THE TOM BROWN BOOKS.
TOM BROWN'S SCHOOL DAYS. 
By An Old Boy. New Edition. Beautifully Illustrated by Arthur Hughes and Sydney Prior Hall. 8vo, Paper, 50 cents.
Nothing need be said of the merits of this acknowledged on all hands to be one of the very best boy's books ever written. "Tom Brown" does not reach the point of ideal excellence. He is not a faultless boy; but his boy-faults, by the way they are corrected, help him in getting on. The more of such reading can be furnished the better. There will never be too much of it. —Examiner and Chronicle.
Can be read a dozen times, and each time with tears and laughter as genuine and impulsive as at the first. —Rochester Democrat.
Finely printed, and contains excellent illustrations. "Tom Brown" is a book which will always be popular with boys, and it deserves to be. —World (N. Y.).
For healthy reading it is one book in a thousand. —Advance.
TOM BROWN AT OXFORD.
By the Author of "Tom Brown's School Days." New Edition. With Illustrations by Sydney Prior Hall. 8vo, Paper, 75 cents.
A new and very pretty edition. The illustrations are exceedingly good, the typography is clear, and the paper white and fine. There is no need to say any thing of the literary merits of the work, which has become a kind of classic, and which presents the grand old Tory University to the reader in all its glory and fascination. —Evening Post.
A book of which one never wearies. —Presbyterian.
Fairly entitled to the rank and dignity of an English classic. Plot, style, and truthfulness are of the soundest British character. Racy, idiomatic, mirror-like, always interesting, suggesting thought on the knottiest social and religious questions, now deeply moving by its unconscious pathos, and anon inspiring uproarious laughter, it is a work the world will not willingly let die. —Christian Advocate.
Both books, in One Volume, 8vo, Cloth, $1 50.

TWO VALUABLE HOUSEHOLD BOOKS
Published by HARPER & BROTHERS, New York.
By DIO LEWIS, A.M., M.D.
NEW EDITION. 12mo, Cloth, $1 50.
The book not only deserves to be read; it will be read, because it is full of interest, concerning itself, as it does, with such matters as girls' boots and shoes; how girls should walk; low neck and short sleeves; outrages upon the body; stockings supporters; why are women so small? idleness among girls; sunshine and health; a word about baths; what you should eat; how to manage a cold; fat and thin girls, etc., etc. —N. Y. Evening Post.
Dr. Dio Lewis has written a sensible and lively book. There is not a dull page in it, and scarcely one that does not convey some sound instruction. We wish the book could enter thousands of our homes, fashionable and unfashionable; for we believe it contains suggestions and teaching of precisely the kind that "our girls" every where need. —N. Y. Independent.
This really important book. —Christian Union.
Written in Dr. Lewis's free and lively style, and is full of good ideas, the fruit of long study and experience, told in a sensible, practical way that commends them to every one who reads. The whole book is admirably sensible. —Boston Post.
Full of practical and very sensible advice to young women. —Episcopalian.
Dr. Lewis is well known as an acute observer, a man of great practical sagacity in sanitary reform, and a lively and brilliant writer upon medical subjects. —N. Y. Observer.
We like it exceedingly. It says just what ought to be said, and that in style colloquial, short, sharp, and memorable. —Christian Advocate.
The whole tone of the book is pure and healthy. —Albany Express.
Every page shows him to be in earnest, and thoroughly alive to the importance of the subjects he discusses. He talks like one who has a solemn message to deliver, and who deems the matter far more essential than the manner. His book is, therefore, a series of short, earnest appeals against the unnatural, foolish, and suicidal customs prevailing in fashionable society. —Churchman.
A timely and most desirable book. —Springfield Union.
Full of spicy, sharp things about matters pertaining to health; full of good advice, which, if people would but take it, would soon change the world in some very important respects; not profound or systematic, but still a book with numberless good things in it. —Liberal Christian.
The author writes with vigor and point, and with occasional dry humor. —Worcester Spy.
Brimful of good, common-sense hints regarding dress, diet, recreation, and other necessary things in the female economy. —Boston Journal.
Dr. Lewis talks very plainly and sensibly, and makes very many important suggestions. He does not mince matters at all, but puts every thing in a straightforward and, not seldom, homely way, perspicuous to the dullest understanding. His style is lively and readable, and the book is very entertaining as well as instructive. —Register, Salem, Mass.
One of the most popular of modern writers upon health and the means of its preservation. —Presbyterian Banner.
There is hardly any thing that may form a part of woman's experience that is not touched upon. —Chicago Journal.
THE BAZAR BOOK OF DECORUM:
CARE OF THE PERSON, MANNERS, ETIQUETTE, AND CEREMONIALS.
16mo, Toned Paper, Cloth, Beveled Edges, $1 00.
A series of sensible, well-written, and pleasant essays on the care of the person, manners, etiquette, and ceremonials. The title Bazar Book is taken from the fact that some of the essays which make up this volume appeared originally in the columns of Harper's Bazar. This in itself is a sufficient recommendation—Harper's Bazar being probably the only journal of fashion in the world which has good sense and enlightened reason for its guides. The "Bazar Book of Decorum" deserves every commendation. —Independent.
A very graceful and judicious compendium of the laws of etiquette, taking its name from the Bazar weekly, which has become an established authority with the ladies of America upon all matters of taste and refinement. —N. Y. Evening Post.
It is, without question, the very best and most thorough work on the subject which has ever been presented to the public. —Brooklyn Daily Times.
It would be a good thing if at least one copy of this book were in every household of the United States, in order that all—especially the youth of both sexes—might read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest its wise instruction, pleasantly conveyed in a scholarly manner which eschews pedantry. —Philadelphia Press.
Abounds in sensible suggestions for keeping one's person in proper order, and for doing fitly and to one's own satisfaction the thousand social duties that make up so large a part of social and domestic life. —Correspondence of Cincinnati Chronicle.
Full of good and sound common-sense, and its suggestions will prove valuable in many a social quandary. —Portland Transcript.
A little work embodying a multitude of useful hints and suggestions regarding the proper care of the person and the formation of refined habits and manners. The subject is treated with good sense and good taste, and is relieved from tedium by an abundance of entertaining anecdotes and historical incident. The author is thoroughly acquainted with the laws of hygiene, and wisely inculcates them while specifying the rules based upon them which regulate the civilities and ceremonies of social life. —Evening Post, Chicago.
* * * It would be easy to quote a hundred curt, sharp sentences, full of truth and force, and touching points of behavior and personal habitude that concern us all. —Springfield Republican.
By far the best book of the kind of which we have any knowledge. —Chicago Journal.
An eminently sensible book. —Liberal Christian.
—> HARPER & BROTHERS will send either of the above works by mail, postage prepaid, to any part of the United States, on receipt of the price.
SCIENCE FOR THE YOUNG.
BY JACOB ABBOTT,
Author of "The Young Christian Series," "Marco Paul Series," "Rainbow and Lucky Series," "Little Learner Series," "Franconia Stories," Illustrated Histories, &c., &c.
Few men enjoy a wider or better earned popularity as a writer for the young than Jacob Abbott. His series of histories, and stories illustrative of moral truths, have furnished amusement and instruction to thousands. He has the knack of piquing and gratifying curiosity. In the book before us he shows his happy faculty of imparting useful information through the medium of a pleasant narrative, keeping alive the interest of the young reader, and fixing in his memory valuable truths. —Mercury, New Bedford, Mass.
Jacob Abbott is almost the only writer in the English language who knows how to combine real amusement with real instruction in such a manner that the eager young readers are quite as much interested in the useful knowledge he imparts as in the story which he makes so pleasant a medium of instruction. —Buffalo Commercial Advertiser.
Being Part I. of Science for the Young. By JACOB ABBOTT. Copiously Illustrated. 12mo, Illuminated Cloth, black and gilt, $1 50.
Perhaps that eminent and ancient gentleman who told his young master that there was no royal road to science could admit that he was mistaken after examining one of the volumes of the series "Science for the Young," which the Harpers are now bringing out. The first of these, "Heat," by Jacob Abbott, while bringing two or three young travelers from a New York hotel across the ocean to Liverpool in a Cunarder, makes them acquainted with most of the leading scientific principles regarding heat. The idea of conveying scientific instruction in this manner is admirable, and the method in which the plan is carried out is excellent. While the youthful reader is skillfully entrapped into perusing what appears to be an interesting story, and which is really so, he devours the substance and principal facts of many learned treatises. Surely this is a royal road for our young sovereigns to travel over. —World, N. Y.
It combines information with amusement, weaving in with a story or sketch of travel dry rules of mechanics or chemistry or philosophy. Mr. Abbott accomplishes this object very successfully. The story is a simple one, and the characters he introduces are natural and agreeable. Readers of the volume, young and old, will follow it with unabating interest, and it can not fail to have the intended effect. —Jewish Messenger.
It is admirably done. * * * Having tried the book with children, and found it absolutely fascinating, even to a bright boy of eight, who has had no special preparation for it, we can speak with entire confidence of its value. The author has been careful in his statements of facts and of natural laws to follow the very best authorities; and on some points of importance his account is more accurate and more useful than that given in many works of considerable scientific pretensions written before the true character of heat as what Tyndall calls "a mode of motion" was fully recognized. * * * Mr. Abbott has, in his "Heat," thrown a peculiar charm upon his pages, which makes them at once clear and delightful to children who can enjoy a fairy tale. —N. Y. Evening Post.
* * * Mr. Abbott has avoided the errors so common with writers for popular effect, that of slurring over the difficulties of the subject through the desire of making it intelligible and attractive to unlearned readers. He never tampers with the truth of science, nor attempts to dodge the solution of a knotty problem behind a cloud of plausible illustrations. The numerous illustrations which accompany every chapter are of unquestionable value in the comprehension of the text, and come next to actual experiment as an aid to the reader. —N. Y. Tribune.
Being Part II. of Science for the Young. By JACOB ABBOTT. Copiously Illustrated. 12mo, Illuminated Cloth, black and gilt, $1 50.
Treats of the theory of "Light," presenting in a popular form the latest conclusions of chemical and optical science on the subject, and elucidating its various points of interest with characteristic clearness and force. Its simplicity of language, and the beauty and appropriateness of its pictorial illustrations, make it a most attractive volume for young persons, while the fullness and accuracy of the information with which it overflows commends it to the attention of mature readers. —N. Y. Tribune.
Like the previous volume, it is in all respects admirable. It is a mystery to us how Mr. Abbott can so simplify the most abstruse and difficult principles, in which optics especially abounds, as to bring them within the grasp of quite youthful readers; we can only be very grateful to him for the result. This book is up to our latest knowledge of the wonderful force of which it treats, and yet weaves all its astounding facts into pleasing and readable narrative form. There are few grown people, indeed, whose knowledge will not be vastly increased by a perusal of this capital book. —N. Y. Evening Mail.
Perhaps there is no American author to whom our young people are under so great a debt of gratitude as to this writer. The book before us, like all its predecessors from the same pen, is lucid, simple, amusing, and instructive. It is well gotten up and finely illustrated, and should have a place in the library of every family where there are children. —N. Y. Star.
It is the second volume of a delightful series started by Mr. Abbott under the title or "Science for the Young," in which is detailed interesting conversations and experiments, narratives of travel, and adventures by the young in pursuit of knowledge. The science of optics is here so plainly and so untechnically unfolded that many of its most mysterious phenomena are rendered intelligible at once. —Cleveland Plain Dealer.
It is complete, and intensely interesting. Such a series must be of great usefulness. It should be in every family library. The volume before us is thorough, and succeeds in popularizing the branch of science and natural history treated, and, we may add, there is nothing more varied in its phenomena or important in its effects than light. —Chicago Evening Journal.
Any person, young or old, who wishes to inform himself in a pleasant way about the spectroscope, magic-lantern cameras, and other optical instruments, and about solar, electric, calcium, magnesium, and all other kinds of light, will find this book of Mr. Abbott both interesting and instructive. —Lutheran Observer.

By Anthony Trollope.
Anthony Trollope's position grows more secure with every new work which comes from his pen. He is one of the most prolific of writers, yet his stories improve with time instead of growing weaker, and each is as finished and as forcible as though it were the sole production of the author. —N.

MISS MULOCK'S NOVELS.
She attempts to show how the trials, perplexities, joys, sorrows, labors, and successes of life deepen or wither the character according to its inward bent.
She cares to teach, not how dishonesty is always plunging men into infinitely more complicated external difficulties than it would in real life, but how any continued insincerity gradually darkens and corrupts the very life-springs of the mind: not how all events conspire to crush an unreal being who is to be the "example" of the story, but how every event, adverse or fortunate, tends to strengthen and expand a high mind, and to break the springs of a selfish or merely weak and self-indulgent nature.
She does not limit herself to domestic conversations, and the mere shock of character on character; she includes a large range of events—the influence of worldly successes and failures—the risks of commercial enterprises—the power of social position—in short, the various elements of a wider economy than that generally admitted into a tale.
She has a true respect for her work, and never permits herself to "make books," and yet she has evidently very great facility in making them.
There are few writers who have exhibited a more marked progress, whether in freedom of touch or in depth of purpose, than the authoress of "The Ogilvies" and "John Halifax."

TENNYSON'S COMPLETE POETICAL WORKS.
POETICAL WORKS OF ALFRED TENNYSON, Poet Laureate. With numerous Illustrations and Three Characteristic Portraits. Forty-fifth Thousand. Including many Poems not hitherto contained in his collected works. New Edition, containing "The Window; or, The Loves of the Wrens;" with Music by Arthur Sullivan. 8vo, Paper, 75 cents; Cloth, $1 25.
Tennyson is, without exception, the most popular of living poets. Wherever the English language is spoken, in America as well as in England, his name has become familiar as a household word, and some volume of the many he has published is to be found in almost every library. For several years a complete cheap edition of his poetical works has been an acknowledged desideratum. Messrs. Harper & Brothers, taking advantage of the conclusion of the Arthurian Poems, have now supplied this want by publishing an attractive household edition of the Laureate's poems, in one volume, clearly and handsomely printed, and illustrated with many engravings after designs by Gustave Dore, Rossetti, Stanfield, W. H. Hunt, and other eminent artists. The volume contains every line the Laureate has ever published, including the latest of his productions, which complete the noble cycle of Arthurian legends, and raise them from a fragmentary series of exquisite cabinet pictures into a magnificent tragic epic, of which the theme is the gradual dethronement of Arthur from his spiritual rule over his order, through the crime of Guinevere and Lancelot; the spread of their infectious guilt, till it breaks up the oneness of the realm, and the Order of the Round Table is shattered, and the ideal king, deserted by many of his own knights, and deeply wounded in the last great battle with the traitor and the heathen, vanishes into the darkness of the world beyond.
The print is clear and excellent; the paper is good; the volume has illustrations from Dore, Millais, and other great artists. Really, the edition is a sort of prodigy in its way. —Independent.
Those who want a perfect and complete edition of the works of the great English Poet Laureate should purchase the Harper edition. —Troy Budget.
A marvel of cheapness. —The Christian Era.
The whole get-up and style of this edition are admirable, and we are sure it will be a welcome addition to every book-case, large or small. But the marvelous thing about it is the price, which is only one dollar for the handsome cloth binding. —Tribune (Wilmington, Del.).
A marvelous instance of blended beauty and cheapness. —Charleston Courier.
