"This volume is worth owning by itself, as a most convenient and reliable compend of recent History, Biography, Statistics, &c., &c. The entire work forms the cheapest and probably now the most desirable Encyclopædia published for popular use."New York Tribune.
"The Conversations Lexicon (Encyclopædia Americana) has become a household book in all the intelligent families in America, and is undoubtedly the best depository of biographical, historical, geographical, and political information of that kind which discriminating readers require."-Silliman's Journal.
"This volume of the Encyclopædia is a Westminster Abbey of American reputation. What names are on the roll since 1833!"-N. Y. Literary World.
"The work to which this volume forms a supplement, is one of the most important contributions that has ever been made to the literature of our country. Besides con densing into a comparatively narrow compass, the substance of larger works of the same kind which had preceded it, it contains a vast amount of information that is not elsewhere to be found, and is distinguished, not less for its admirable arrangement, than for the variety of subjects of which it treats. The present volume, which is edited by one of the most distinguished scholars of our country, is worthy to follow in the train of those which have preceded it. It is a remarkably felicitous condensa tion of the more recent improvements in science and the arts, besides forming a very important addition to the department of Biography, the general progress of society, &c., &c."-Albany Argus.

"The volumes teem with exciting incidents, abound in portraits, sketches, and anecdotes, and are at once interesting and instructive. The work is not only historical and biographical, but it is anecdotical and philosophical. Many of the chapters embody thrilling incidents, while as a whole, the publication may be regarded as of a high intellectual order."-Inquirer.

"These volumes have the fascination of a romance united to the integrity of history."-Times.
"A most valuable and entertaining work."-Chronicle.
"This interesting and well-written work, in which the severe truth of history takes almost the wildness of romance, will constitute a valuable addition to our biographical literature."-Morning Herald.
"A valuable contribution to historical knowledge, to young persons especially. It contains a mass of every kind of historical matter of interest, which industry and research could collect. We have derived much entertainment and instruction from the work."-Athenæum.
"The execution of this work is equal to the conception. Great pains have been taken to make it both interesting and valuable."-Literary Gazette.
"A charming work-full of interest, at once serious and pleasing.". -Monsieur Guizot.
"A most charming biographical memoir. We conclude by expressing our unqualified opinion, that we know of no more valuable contribution to modern history than this ninth volume of Miss Strickland's Lives of the Queens."-Morning Herald.
DON QUIXOTE-ILLUSTRATED EDITION.
DON QUIXOTE DE LA MANCHA.
TRANSLATED FROM THE SPANISH OF
MIGUEL DE CERVANTES SAAVEDRA, BY CHARLES JARVIS, ESQ.
CAREFULLY REVISED AND CORRECTED, WITH A MEMOIR OF THE AUTHOR AND A NOTICE OF HIS WORKS.
WITH NUMEROUS ILLUSTRATIONS, BY TONY JOHANNOT.
In two beautifully printed volumes, crown octavo, rich extra crimson cloth. The publishers are happy in presenting to the admirers of Don Quixote an edition of that work in some degree worthy of its reputation and popularity. The want of such a one has long been felt in this country, and in presenting this, they have only to express their hope that it may meet the numerous demands and inquiries. The translation is that by Jarvis, which is acknowledged superior in both force and fidelity to all others. It has in some few instances been slightly altered to adapt it better to modern readers, or occasionally to suit it to the inimitable designs of Tony Johannot. These latter are admitted to be the only successful pictorial exponents of the wit and humour of Cervantes, and a choice selection of them have been engraved in the best manner. A copious memoir of the author and his works has been added by the editor. The volumes are printed in large clear type, on fine paper, and handsomely bound, and the whole is confidently offered as worthy the approbation of all readers of this imperishable romance.
PICCIOLA, THE PRISONER OF FENESTRELLA; OR, CAPTIVITY CAPTIVE.
BY X. B. SAINTINE.
A NEW EDITION, WITH ILLUSTRATIONS. In one elegant duodecimo volume, large type, and fine paper; price in fancy covers 50 cents, or in beautiful extra crimson cloth.
"Perhaps the most beautiful and touching work of fiction ever written, with the exception of Undine."-Allas.
"The same publishers have shown their patriotism, common sense, and good taste by putting forth their fourth edition of this work, with a set of very beautiful engraved embellishments. There never was a book which better deserved the compliment. It is one of greatly superior merit to Paul and Virginia, and we believe it is destined to surpass that popular work of St. Pierre in popularity. It is better suited to the advanced ideas of the present age, and possesses peculiar moral charms in which Paul and Virginia is deficient. St. Pierre's work derived its popularity from its bold attack on feudal prejudices; Saintine's strikes deeper, and assails the secret infidelity which is the bane of modern society, in its stronghold. A thousand editions of Picciola will not be too many for its merit."-Lady's Book.
"This is a little gem of its kind-a beautiful conceit, beautifully unfolded and applied. The style and plot of this truly charming story require no criticism; we will only express the wish that those who rely on works of fiction for their intellectual food, may always find those as pure in language and beautiful in moral as Picciola."-New York Review.
