A Frenchman in America.

By MAX O’RELL. Author of " Jonathan and His Continent," " John Bull, Jr.," etc. With over 130 illustrations by E. W. Kemble. I vol., octavo, extra cloth, gilt top, $2.00.

Max O’Rell's marvellous versatility is the best guarantee that he does not repeat himself in these reminiscences. While every page glows with humor of the same swift and graceful pen, the book is as fresh and brimming with interest as though its genial author had never before written a line about America. “With such a combination of author and artist the success of the work is a foregone conclusion."


Shall Girls Propose?

One Summer in Hawaii.



By a “SPECULATIYE BACHELOR." 1 vol., new and unique style, extra cloth, gilt top.

75 cents.

“The Book, taken all in all, is a very clever composition, and can be read with interest by those that contemplate matrimony, those that have taken the plunge and also by those that are still heart free. It is written in an entertaining style, and the hackneyed subject of love, is treated throughout in a novel manner."

-[New York Commercial Advertiser.

By Helen MATHER. Profusely illustrated with full

page pictures and illustrations running through the text. 1 vol., 12mo, $2.00.

There has been no book written on Hawaii, or the Sandwich Islands, as many still call them, within the last twenty years. But this silence is now broken by Mrs. Helen Mather, in her "One Summer in Hawaii.' The book is beautifully printed and illustrated from photographs and drawings made by MR. WALTER McDOUGALL.

The Blue Pavilions.



By RICHARD KAUFMANN. Translated from the Danish

Miss Olga Flinch. Profusely illustrated. 1 vol.,

8vo, $3.00
Holiday Edition. Elegantly bound in white cloth,

extra, full gilt, gilt edges, $3.50.
"An unusually handsome book."--New York Sun.

By “Q,” author of " Dead Man's Rock," "The

Splendid Spur," "Noughts and Crosses," Astonishing History of Troy Town," etc., etc. 8vo, cloth, $1.25.

The popularity of Q-who has now confessed to being Mr. Quiller-Couch, and a man not out of his twenties-increases with every story that he publishes, and he now has a larger following than many writers who have been twice as long before the public, and who are ranked among the most popular. It is enough, then, to say that "The Blue Pavilions," is eminently worthy of its famous author, and affords fresh evidence how well deserved his reputation really is.

By Henry JEPHSON. 2 vols., large crown, 8vo. Just ready. Mr. Jephson, private secretary to Mr. Foster and Sir G. Trevelyan, begins with the days when an open meeting for discussion of public affairs was condemned as scarcely less than overt treason, traces the slow growth of political speech-making and analyzes the elements in its development. The open-air meetings of the Wesleyan revivalists had their share ; the old right of petition to the Crown for redress of grievances, and occasional waves of popular clamor gave it a fitful existence until at the time of the so-called "Wilkes Rebellion” it first became an organized political engine, then and since acting as a perpetual check upon the party in power. To the student of politics this book should prove of great value and interest.


By SIR GEORGE CORNWALL LEWIS, K. C. B. Edited with an Introduction

by C. P. LUCAS, B. A. 8vo. $3.50.


By EDWARD JENKS, M. A., Professor of Law in the University of Melbourne. 8vo., $4.00.

CANADA AND THE CANADIAN QUESTION. By Goldwin Smith, D. C. L. With map., 8vo., $2.00.

The value of his work is that it presents the whole subject with a certain impartiality, and enables Canadians and our own people to study the entire question dispasionately.

He analyzes the manifest destiny of Canada, and points out how the interests and prosperity of the two countries demand the realization of a united continent of North America. * * The benetits of such a union are urged by him with great force, and with the comprehension of a statesman rather than in the spirit of a politician.-- Boston Herald.

ELEMENTS OF POLITICs. By Henry Sidgwick, M. A., LL. D., Knightsbridge Professor of Moral Philosophy in the University of Cambridge. 8vo. $4.00.

SILVER IN EUROPE. By S.'Dana Horton, author of * The Silver Pound," etc., etc. 12mo., 300 pp., cloth, $1.50.

Mr. Dana Horton's name is one that carries with it an amount of authority attaching to but few writers on monetary science. He has studied the subject in all its branches and in every aspect, and has written innumerable letters, treatises, addresses, etc., etc., upon it.--St. Louis Times.

A FRAGMENT ON GOVERNMENT. By Jeremy Bentham. Edited, with an Introduction, by F, C. Montague, M. A., Late Fellow of Oriel College. 8vo., $2.00.

“The Fragment on Government,” which has long been out of print, is now offered to the public. The introduction prefixed, aims at showing the place of Bentham in the history of thought, and the significance of the " Fragment” as a contribution to political philosophy.-- From the Editor's Preface.

THE ENGLISH CONSTITUTION. By E. Boutmy, author of "Studies in Constitutional Law.” Translated from the French by Mrs. Eaden. With Preface by Sir Frederick Pollock, Bart. 12mo., $1.75.

STUDIES IN CONSTITUTIONAL Law. France, England, United States. By Emile Boutmy. Translated from the second French Edition by E. M. Dicey, with an Introduction by A. V. Dicey. 12mo., $1.75.

A volume which, though scarcely more than a sketch, shows a singular insight in avoiding the errors usually made by French writers in discussing ing the political order in England and the United States. M. Boutmy, indeed, deserves to be named with honor as, after Mr. Bryce, one of the most sagacious students of American institutions now living. -Literary World.




By James Bryce, Author of “ The Holy Roman Empire,” M. P. for Aberdeen. ,

2d Edition, revised throughout. 2 vols., large crown, 8vo., $2.50.

This general outline of Mr. Bryce's most important book is given in the hope that it may help create the conviction that no earnest and intelligent American can afford to remain ignorant of it. His education will be incomplete, as a preparation for his duties as a citizen, if he does not take advantage of the helps to a sound judgment and a noble purpose which are here given.-N.Y. Evening Post.

for 1892. Why? Because these Reviews are essentially periodicals of the present day. They chronicle every advance in human progress, every new discovery, every new movement in science, art and literature as well as the latest phases of religious and political discussion. The reader is not kept waiting for the preparation of elaborate articles, but every month is supplied with the freshest thought of the world's great writers and thinkers. These reviews are devoted so exclusively to matters of present and current interest that "features” which form so large a part of magazine programmes can have no place in them. The Reviews stand alone on this platform.
