THE

GOLDEN TREASURY

OF THE BEST SONGS AND LYRICAL POEMS IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

SELECTED AND ARRANGED WITH NOTES

BY FRANCIS TURNER PALGRAVE

FELLOW OF EXETER COLLEGE OXFORD

16mo. Green Vellum. Price, $1.75.

LONDON SPECTATOR.

"There is no book in the English language which will make a more delightful companion than this. We have few criticisms to make upon this volume, which must not only be read, but possessed, in order to be adequately valued."

BOSTON TRANSCRIPT.

"The volume is indeed worthy to be ranked among those rare volumes of selections which really educate the public taste. Anybody who will read this volume through, and thoroughly appreciate its rich contents, may be sure that he has a true sense of the inmost essence of poetry.'

BOSTON COURIER.

"It is an exquisite gem of a book in print, paper, and binding. Its intrinsic merits are not less; for we hold it to be, on the whole, the very best selection of poetry, for its size, in the language. There is not a poem in it which is not of enduring merit."

NEW YORK INDEPENDENT.

66 . Among all the books of this new era of elegance, two have been on the whole distinctly the most beautiful, namely, De Tocqueville's Democracy in America, and the present Golden Treasury.' Both are better manufactured books than England can show; for although it is true that the materials for both were in part imported, yet the deft touch of American fingers, the keen sight and judgment and faculty' of American eye and brain, impart a finish and an altogether (this is much better than to steal tout ensemble' from the wicked Emperor) which John Bull's big, thumby fingers can in no wise attain unto. We recommend attention to the singularly clear and elegant cut of the type, more particularly in the exquisite nonpareil of the notes; the perfect clearness and evenness of the press-work; the workmanlike finish and tasteful design of the binding, entirely simple, yet ornamental in the best sense; and the sharp delicacy in design and impression of the engraved tail-pieces and headpieces.'

NORTH AMERICAN REVIEW.

"Its external form, the prettiness of its cover, the clearness of its finely-cut type, the appropriate originality of its initial letters, the excellence of its large illustrations, are only the befitting dress and adornment of stories delightful alike in feeling and in fancy."

SPRINGFIELD REPUBLICAN.

"It has an individuality and flavor of its own, is very charming as a work of fancy, and healthful in the tone which breathes through the stories, like fragrance through a grove of pines."

DE

TOCQUEVILLE'S
DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA

Translated by HENRY REEVE, Esq. Edited, with Notes, the Translation Revised and in great part Rewritten, and the Additions made to the recent Paris Editions now first translated, by FRANCIS BOWEN, Alford Professor of Moral Philosophy in Harvard University.

Elegantly printed on linen paper, at the University Press.
Bound in Maroon Vellum.
2 vols.
Post 8vo. Price, 6.00.

BOSTON POST.

"A new edition of this noble work is before us, carefully edited by Professor Bowen, with brief elucidatory notes from the twelfth edition, and contains the matter which De Tocqueville then added, and the last edition which he supervised. This matter consists of his Essay on Democracy in Switzerland, his great Speech, predicting the French Revolution of 1848, and his cloquent Advertisement, addressed to his countrymen, urging a study of American institutions, as affording the most instructive lessons for the organization and conduct of the new French Republic. These three papers are for the first time translated and printed here, and are valuable additions. To this is added a Memoir of the Author."

NEW YORK TRIBUNE.

"The work is now presented to the American public in a form not unworthy of its high claim as a profound disquisition on the philosophy of republican institutions as exemplified in the United States. It is brought out in the superb typography of the Cambridge University Press.

CINCINNATI DAILY GAZETTE.

"For substantial elegance, perfection of paper, faultlessness of typography, and severely simple tastefulness, the Cambridge edition of De Tocqueville has never been equalled on this side of the Atlantic. Indeed, we have seen few or no rivals bearing an English imprint. It is an honor not only to the publishers, but to the book-trade of America."

NEW YORK TIMES.

"In its mechanical execution, this edition approaches what it is so difficult to find in either books or humanity, - perfection." BOSTON COURIER.

"It is one of the handsomest and most tasteful books which have ever issued from the American press. The paper, the type, the press-work, the binding, are all of the first quality. The ket is worthy of the gem; we cannot give it higher praise."

A TREATISE ON LOGIC,

OR THE LAWS OF PURE THOUGHT; Comprising both the Aristotelic and the Hamiltonian Analyses of Logical Forms.

BY FRANCIS BOWEN,

ALFORD PROFESSOR OF MORAL PHILOSOPHY IN HARVARD

UNIVERSITY.

12m0. Cloth, $2.00.

THE PUBLISHERS' CIRCULAR.

"There was great need for just such a book as this. Whately's Logic is too old for the present state of the science, and the great work of Mill deals more with applied and concrete thought than with the abstract laws of pure thought. Professor Bowen's work is fully up to the modern state of the science. It embodies the results reached by Hamilton, Mansel, Thomson, De Morgan, Boole, Mill, and others, who, within the last quarter of a century, have given a new impetus to the study of the laws of thought and the theory of logical forms. The labors of Keiswetter, Fries, Bencke, Dressler, Drobisch, and others among the Germans, have also been placed under contribution. We have thus a manual for collegiate study and for the perusal of professional and educated minds, which will initiate them into the most recent investigations. We should very much like to see the work introduced into our institutions for advanced instruction."

THE ROUND TABLE.

"There has been in our language an open field and a pressing demand for a treatise of the character which Professor Bowen has sought to provide. We are glad that he has been induced to meet this demand. We are glad, also, to find that he has met it so well. A simple inspection of the well-conceived and wellarranged table of contents is sufficient to convince any one who is conversant with the subject, and with other treatises, that the author has been very judicious in the selection of his leading themes and in the general outline of his subordinate divisions. We can confidently pronounce this work to be scholarlike and thorough in its character, and most honorable to the distinguished position and reputation of its respected author."

NEW-ENGLANDER.

"The plan of Professor Bowen is more comprehensive than that of any of the works which we have named. The execution is in many respects deserving of high commendation, as we should expect it would be from the well-known ability, thoroughness, and industry of the author."

ZION'S HERALD.

"As it regards definition, clearness, and fulness of statement of the various points which make a complete scientific treatise, we think the author has succeeded in producing a better text-book than any other before the American people.'
