SECOND EDITION, WITH ADDITIONS, 1 vol., post 8vo., 10s. 6<L bound.

" We believe we do not exaggerate in saying that, since the publication of White's
' Natural History of Selborne,' and of the ' Introduction to Entomology,' by Kirby and
Spence, no work in our language is better calculated than the ' Zoological Recreations' to
fulfil the avowed aim of its author to furnish a hand-book which may cherish or awaken
a love for natural history." Quarterly Review.

" There is a fund of wit and wisdom in these amusing volumes." Sun.

" These volumes are redolent of the hearty fun and strong masculine sense of our old
friend Sam Slick. The last work of Mr. Haliburton is quite equal to the first. Every page
of the ' Old Judge' is alive with rapid, fresli sketches of character ; droll, quaint, racy say-
ings; good-humoured practical jokes ; and capitally told anecdotes." Morning Chronicle.
