Caroline Tilton. With introduction by Prof. Vincenzo Botta
Octavo, cloth.

A trustworthy and exceptionally vivid description of the city which, in the present
reopening of the Eastern question, is attracting more attention than any other in the
world. De Amicis is one of the strongest and most brilliant of the present generation of
Italian writers, and this latest work from his pen, as well fiom the picturesqueness of its
descriptions as for its skilful analysis of the traits and characteristics of the medley of
races represented in the Turkish capital, possesses an exceptional interest and value.

THE GREEKS OF TO-DAY. By Hon. Charles K. Tuckerman,
late Minister Resident of the U. S. at Athens. Third Edition. i2mo,

cloth, $1.50

This work attracted special attention at the time of its publication, in 1872, as giving
a trustworthy and interesting picture of life in Greece, and of the character and status of
the modern Greek. At this time, when public attention is so generally directed towards
the scheme of practically re-establishing a Greek empire and Greek supremacy in the
East, it is thought that a new edition will prove of interest and service.

" The information contained in the volume is ample and various, and it cannot fail
to hold a high rank among the authorities on modern Greece." — N. Y. Tribune.

"No one can read this book without having his interest greatly increased in this
brave, brilliant, and in every way remarkable people." — N. Y. Times.

" We know of no book which so combines freshness and fullness of information." —
N. Y. Nation.

Translated by J. M. Hart. 121110, cloth, . . . . $1.50

— Buffalo Commercial.

" Affords a clear, distinct, and comprehensive view of the political institutions of
England."— N. Y. Nation.

" Here, in every sense, is a charming book. * * * * So full of thought, that,
like the best of Macaulay's Essays, it will bear reading more than once. * * * *
We hav; rarely met with more picture-like descriptions of what seems to have dwelt most
upon his mind — English landscape scenery and rural life." — N. Y. World.

material development of the former kingdom of New Spain, comprising

metric Map, . ........ $1.75

"Just at the present moment everything which affords reliable information on the
question of silver, its uses and production, is of almost paramount interest." — Washington
National Republican.

mental feature." — Chicago Journal.

" The book will unquestionably become the authority on^he subiec^of/which it
treats."— .SV. Louis Republican. %& i^ W
