PRUE AND I. ILLUSTRATED.

PRUE AND I. By GEORGE WILLIAM Curtis. Il

lustrated from Drawings by ALBERT EDWARD STERNER. 8vo, Illuminated Silk, Uncut Edges and Gilt Top, $3 50. (In a Box.)

The illustrations are sympathetically conceived, and at once illuminate the text and are themselves illuminated by it.-Exam. iner, N. Y.

Nothing that Mr. Curtis ever wrote is fuller of that subtle charm that was delightful in all his work—that grace and finish and sweetness, that dainty humor, that kindly philosophy.—Chris. tian at Work, N. Y.

A word, and more than a word, is due to the illustrator for drawings that are in every case sympathetic with the text-deli. cate and sincere, making the pages as fair to the eyes as to the mind, and that is very fair indeed. . . . A book so good, and good with the virtue of the man who wrote it, has seldom enriched the world.-N. Y. Times.

Its philosophy is healthy, its wit is delicate, and its style is both characteristic and pure; but if it is therefore valued, still more is it loved for the charm in which it is enveloped, a charm which is indescribable except in so far as it may be described by saying that Mr. Curtis possessed it in common-though with a difference—with Lamb. Like the “ Essays of Elia," “ Prue and I” draws much of its power from idiosyncrasies that are personal. Régard for its excellences is inseparable from regard for its author. The new edition has been illustrated by Mr. Albert Sterner in a vein of refinement.-N. Y. Tribune.
