TWO NOVELS OF INDIAN LIFE,

[ocr errors]

THE CITY OF SUNSHINE.

By ALEXANDER ALLARDYCE, Author of Balmoral : A
Romance of the Queen's Country,' 'Earlscourt,' &c. New and

Revised Edition. Crown 8vo, 6s.
“A real tale of India, by a writer who thoroughly understands his subject.”—
Saturday Review.

“ This very clever book. To know it is in a great degree to understand the people and customs of the Eastern empire that owns our sway; while as a work of fiction it offers a deep and exciting interest.”—Morning Post

The chief charm of the book for us is the succession of brilliant pictures of Indian life which it draws....... Few works of fiction are issued in any year which are better or as well worth reading as “The City of Sunshine.'”

"-Observer. “ Takes us to fresh scenes and unhackneyed situations. So living a picture of a society very few can personally observe is surely of greater value than the reiterated reproduction of society with which every one is familiar.”British Weekly.

IN FURTHEST IND

THE NARRATIVE of Mr EDWARD CARLyon of ELLSWETHER, in the
County of NorTHAMPTON, and late of the HONOURABLE East
INDIA COMPANY's SERVICE, GENTLEMAN. Wrote by his own hand
in the year of grace 1697. Edited, with a few Explanatory Notes,

by SYDNEY C. GRIER. Post 8vo, 6s.
" This work is a tour de force. Up till the last two pages we read it with the
conviction that it recorded twenty years' experience in India in the time of his
most religious and gracious Majesty King Charles II. And surely enough it
forms a unique picture of that period in what is now our Indian Empire....... In-
cidentally, his book is a most instructive bit of the picturesque past, but it is
really a fine romantic story.Daily Chronicle.

“ Told with a naïve simplicity that is refreshing."--Morning Post.

“ Told with excellent persuasiveness, so that you are convinced it is all a true story.......Full of delight and instruction.”-Saturday Review.

One of the most ingenious imitations of an actual record ever written.......A narrative of adventures always powerful and often fascinating."Bookman.

“A charming book and a refreshing bit of naturalism.......All through the book there are a virility and straightforwardness of tone which are very agreeable."Court Journal.
