One of the most valuable books ever published in India--valuable for its sound information, its careful array of pertinent facts, and its sterling common sense.

The medical part of the work is invaluable.'- Calcutta Guardian.

A GOOD MATCH. By AMELIA PERRIER, Author of Mea Culpa. Two vols.

[Just out. THOMASINA. By the Author of Dorothy,' 'De Cressy,' &c. Two vols. crown 8vo.

[Just out. We would liken it to a finished and delicate cabinet picture, in which there is no brilliant colour, and yet all is harmony; in which no line is without its purpose, but all contribute to the unity of the work.'-Athenæum.

• For the delicacies of character-drawing, for play of incident, and for finish of style, we must refer our readers to the story itself: from the perusal of which they cannot fail to derive both interest and amusement.'-Daily News.

• Very pleasant and lively reading.'—Graphic.
"This undeniably pleasing story. -Pall Mall Gazette.

THE STORY OF SIR EDWARD'S WIFE. By HAMILTON MARSHALL, Author of 'For Very Life.' One vol. crown 8vo.

[Just out. • There are many clever conceits in it Mr. Hamilton Marshall proves in “Sir Edward's Wife” that he can tell a story closely and pleasantly.' --Pall Mall Gazette.

A quiet, graceful little story.'—Spectator. . There is a freshness and vigour in Mr. Marshall's writings that will be enjoyed by the thoughtful reader.'-Public Opinion.

IV

LINKED AT LAST. By F. E. BUNNÈTT. One vol. crown 8vo.

““ Linked at Last” contains so much of pretty description, natural incident, and delicate portraiture, that the reader who once takes it up will not be inclined to relinquish it without concluding the volume.'—Morning Post.

A very charming story.'-John Bull.
A very simple and beautiful story.'--Public Opinion.

V

PERPLEXITY. By SYDNEY Mostyn, a New Writer. Three vols. crown 8vo.

[Just out. • Unquestionably a very powerful story. What may be called its manipulation is exceedingly able, inasmuch as it is told in an autobiographical form ; and yet it exhibits the thoughts, feelings, ideas, and temptations of a woman of varied and interesting characteristics.' Morning Post.

We congratulate Sydney Mostyn on the production of a deeply interesting work, full of manly thoughts, admirable reflections, and sparkling humour. The work is aptly named, and we can assure its author we shall experience no perplexity when others from his pen lie on our table.'-Public Opinion.

Shows much lucidity, much power of portraiture, and no inconsiderable senise of humour.'—Examiner.

CRUEL AS THE GRAVE. By the COUNTESS VON BOTHMER.

Three vols. crown 8vo. Jealousy is cruel as the Grave.'

• The Wise Man's motto is prefixed to an interesting, though somewhat tragic, story, by the Countess von Bothmer. Her German prince, with his chivalrous affection, his disinterested patriotism, and his soldierlike sense of luty, is no unworthy type of a national character which has lately given the world many instances of old-fashioned heroism.'--Athenæum.

• This graceful story-tender and gay, with the sweetest tenderness and the brightest gaiety-whether pathetic or satirical, is always natural and never dull.'—Morning Post.

• An agreeable, unaffected, and eminently readable novel.'—Daily News.

HER TITLE OF HONOUR. By HOLME LEE. One vol. crown

8vo. (Second Edition.)

It is unnecessary to recommend tales of Holme Lee's, for they are well known, and all more or less liked. But this book far exceeds even our favourites, “Sylvan Holt's Daughter,” “Kathie Brande,” and “Thorney Hall,” because with the interest of a pathetic story is united the value of a definite and high purpose.'— Spectator. We need scarcely say of a book of Holme Lee's writing,

that it is carefully finished and redolent of a refined and beautiful soul. We have no more accomplished or conscientious literary artist.' —British Quarterly.

• A most exquisitely written story'-Literary Churchman.

THE

International Scientific Series.

MESSRS. HENRY S. KING & Co. have the pleasure to announce that under the above title they intend to issue a SERIES of POPULAR TREATISES, embodying the results of the latest investigations in the various departments of Science at present most prominently before the world.

The character and scope of the Series will be best indicated by a reference to the names and subjects included in the following List; from which it will be seen that the co-operation of many of the most distinguished Professors in England, America, Germany, and France has been already secured.

Although these Works are not specially designed for the instruction of beginners, still as they are intended to address the non-scientific public, they will be, as far as possible, explanatory in character, and free from technicalities. The object of each author will be to bring his subject as near as he can to the general reader.

The Series will also be published simultaneously in New York by Messrs. D. Appleton & Co.; in Paris by M. Germer Baillière; and in Leipzig by Messrs. Brockhaus. The volumes will be crown 8vo. size, well printed on good paper, strongly and elegantly bound, and will sell in this country at a price not exceeding Five Shillings.

A first List of Authors and Subjects is appended; but several of the titles are provisional. The first volume, by PROFESSOR JNO. TYNDALL, F.R.S., entitled THE FORMS OF WATER IN RAIN AND RIVERS, ICE, AND GLACIERS,' is now in the press, and will be published in the Autumn. It is impossible at present to give a definite announcement of the order of publication; but it is expected that, besides Professor Tyndall's book, the following will be issued during the present year:THE PRINCIPLES OF MENTAL PHYSIOLOGY.

By Dr. CARPENTER.
BODILY MOTION AND CONSCIOUSNESS.

By Professor HUXLEY, F.R.S.
