NEW VOLUME OF VERSE.

LAST YEAR'S LEAVES.

BY JOHN JERVIS BERESFORD, M.A.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. “Mr. Beresford's subjects are many and varied, and he displays a ready versatility in adapting his strains to the most opposite themes. His lines on 'Ireland' are marked by an ardent patriotism that finds vent in justly indignant and vigorous accents. In quite another key the poem called Amor Vincit Omnia' is an example of tender and pathetic verse, in which both idea and form deserve equal praise. The Poet's Crown' is another of the charming poems contained in this volume."— The Morning Post.

" Last Year's Leaves is quite above the average of the numerous books of verse which are poured in ever-increasing volume over an unappreciative public. We commend this volume to our readers.Literary World

These poems and sonnets make a handsome little volume. The poet finds inspiration in many subjects, and the events, domestic and public, which touch the springs of the nation's life-The Christian.

A collection of gracefully written verse."—Western Mail. “ Instinct with true poetry."The Malvern Advertiser.

“ His descriptions of Elsie Venner' and Shorthouse's lovely book, "Sir Perceval,' are full of point and poetic beauty, which all readers of those books will fully appreciate.”The Carmarthen Journal.

“The Legend of Myddfai,' and 'The Poet's Crown' should live in our literature.”—The Bayswater Chronicle.

“We commend this little volume very heartily to all true lovers of poetry and nature.”—Malvern Looker-on.

“ The fruits of a Muse graceful, sober, playful, stately, tender, or strong, according to the theme. - The Red Dragon.

“ Altogether, there is much merit and promise in this handsome little volume. We shall hope to extend our accquaintance with Mr. Beresford."- Oxford Review.
