ADAIR (SIR ROBERT).-AN HISTORICAL MEMOIR OF A

MISSION to the COURT of VIENNA in 1806. By the Right Honourable Sir ROBERT ADAIR, G.C.B. With a Selection from his Despatches, published by permission of the proper Authorities. Svo. 186. cloth.

“The volume consists of selections from Mr. Adair't correspondence during his residence at Vienna, with such notices as are necessary to link it together, to enable the reader to understand the drift of the whole, by presenting him with a general vier of the aspect of political affairs at the time. Viewed from a remote or historical point, we think Sir Robert Adair's work one of considerable importance. It throws a light upon the inner motives of the Austrian and Prossian courts during two eventful years when the minds of men imagined the growth of an universal empire in Europe : it also contains a variety of facts having a connexion with great events; and it indicates, with more or less of fulness, the public and personal characters of several eminent men (Napoleon, Fox, Canning, Bignon, Count Stadion. Many of the letters are very creditable specimens of Sir Robert's powers as a diplomatist, sensible in view, frank in spirit, direct in expression, and not devoid of elegance or power in composition, rather overcoming than struggling with the form of the state-paper. The miscellaneous correspondence is also interesting for variety

of matter and animation of style."-SPECTATOL ADDISON.-THE KNIGHTS TEMPLARS.

Illustrated by many of his Letters and Private Papers never before published. By Lucy AIRIN. 7 vols. Post svo. with Portrait from Sir Godfrey Kneller's Picture, 186. cloth.

* It is impossible to be otherwise than pleased with the instructive and sensible biography with which Miss Aikin has here presented us. It is the first attempt to furnish a memoir of Addison at all equal to the merit of the subiect; it is a pleasing and interesting work, and supplies a desideratum in literary history. While names of inferior Bote have been thrust into notice by voluminous biographies, we have been left to gather the incidents of his career as we best could from contemporary sources. In the execution of her labour, Miss Aikin has exercised priseworthy diligence: she has ransacked among those fine and inexhaustible sources of personal and national interest-family papers, and has succeeded in rescuing from the obscurity of worm-eaten chests, and from the bondage of red tape. many documents which throw light on the most doubtful parts of his bistory, and relieve his character from the reproaches attempted to be cast on it. She has produced, both in style and matter, a very interesting work, creditable

to her feelings and talents, and honourable to her industry."-BRITANNIA. ALLAN.-A PICTORIAL TOUR IN THE MEDITERRANEAN:

“ A most artist-like and interesting work, full of beautiful views, and interspersed with many charming woodcats

of scenery and antiquities."-LITERART GAZETTE. AMY HERBERT.

By a LADY. Edited by the Rev. WILLIAM SEWELL, B.D. of Exeter College, Oxford: 2 vols. fcp. 8vo. 98. cloth.

a The object of this interesting little work is, under the attractive form of an agreeable fiction, and by means of wellcontrived incidents, to inculcate and exemplify the incalculable advantages of a strictly religious and moral education. The style is simple and elegant, and the narrative so constructed as to interest the reader by its character, apart from the religious and moral teaching to which it is made subservient. Its great merit is, the skilful blending of mase

ment with the teacbing of all the kindlier virtues and christian graces." Joux BULL. BAILEY.-ESSAYS ON THE PURSUIT OF TRUTH,

And on the Progress of Knowledge. By SAMUEL BAILEY, Author of " Essays on the Formation and Publication of Opinions," "Berkeley's Theory of Vision,” &c. 2d Edition, revised and enlarged, 8vo. gs. 6d. cloth.

« Mr. Bailey is an admirable writer, both as to the general tone of thought and sentiment, and as to his style, which is clear, forcible, and elegant. On the class of subjects to which he has chiefly directed his attention, no man writes what is more worthy of being read, or what is acceptable to a larger class of readers. The peculiar quality of his powerful essays is the practical and useful conviction they produce of truths as obvious as they are important, but which are strangely neglected by the majority of mankind.' We do not often meet with a book which we can

more strongly recommend."-INQUIRER. BAILLIE'S (JOANNA) NEW DRAMAS.

« The arrangement adopted in this extended edition of Dr. Blair's valuable work is most admirable ; each table comprising the space of half a century, and exhibiting, in parallel columns, contemporary kings and rulers, the chief events that marked the history of their time, and the most celebrated characters who flourished in their age. As an aid to the study of history, and as a general work of reference, the tables are of great utility, and we are satisfied that, as their merit becomes kaown, no one to whom they are accessible will ever take up a history without having this volume open before him. It is to our view an indispensable companion to every collection of history, however small."

The domestic economy and hard life of the poor fishermen in the remote and sea-beaten villages along the Swedish coast, the little shopkeepers or merchants, the wreckers, sugglers, and custom-house officers, with the miscellaneous persons that fill up the interstices of these classes, are all painted to the life, as well as the 'interiors,' and the few formas of landscape around

them."-SPECTATOR. CATLOW.-POPULAR CONCHOLOGY;

“We are inclined to think and it is a painful reflection that Mons. De Custine's remarkable volumes contain a more accurate account of the state and condition of Russia than any other work of recent date, without exception. The anthor has manifestly penetrated through that superficial glitter and gorgeous array which have blinded the eyes of too many travellers to the imperfections and defects of this great empire, and has shewn it as it really is. To do this in the case of Russia requires many and favourable opportunities of observation, considerable shrewdness, and a courage and determination not easily to be daunted; all which Mons. De Custine has proved himself to have possessed in an eminent degree, and the result is, a work which those who are desirous to know Russia as it really is, and not as it would faip impose itself on the world to be, would do well to consult.
