By the Same Author:

AMERICAN LITERATURE and Other Papers. With Introduction by John Greenleaf Whittier. 12mo, gilt

top, $1.50 ; in half-calf, $3.00.

Scarcely inferior to Macaulay in brilliance of diction and graphic portraits, he was

freer froin prejudice and passion, and more loyal to the truth of fact and history.

He was a thoroughly honest man. - JOHN G. WHITTIER. He certainly was a master of his subjects and wrote with grace and humor, and in the

purest, most lucid, and most incisive English. The paper on “ American Litera. ture" would alone prove this, and we know of no essay that crowds so much critical information into so brief a space. It is a mine of almost inexhaustible wealth for the young student, and for reference will prove wellnigh invaluable to the present generation of readers. - Boston Gazette.

With portrait of Mr. Whipple, and Dr. Bartol's Memorial Address.

12mo, gilt top, $1.50; in half-calf, $3.00. A positively fascinating piece of reading. – Hartford Courant. The incidents with which he crowds his pages make it flash with brilliancy and at

the same time represent the man. - Independent. No English critic ever surpassed Mr. Whipple in the precision of his judgments, the

entire calmness of his reasoning, the perfection of his pictures, and the luminous clearness of his style. His essays are not an introduction to literature, but the very essence of literature itself. -- The Beacon, Boston.
