Travel, Adventure and Topography

THE INDIAN BORDERLAND : Being a Personal Record
of Twenty Years. By Sir T. H. HOLDICH, K.C.I. E. Illustrated.
Demy 8vo. i$s. net.

This book is a personal record of the author's connection with those military and
political expeditions which, during the last twenty years, have led to the con-
solidation of our present position in the North-West frontier of India. It is
a personal history of trans-frontier surveys and boundary demarcations, com-
mencing with Penjdeh and ending with the Pamirs, Chitral, and Tirah.

MODERN ABYSSYNIA. By A. B. WYLDE. With a Map and
a Portrait. Demy 8vo. i^s. net.

An important and comprehensive account of Abyssinia by a traveller who knows
the country intimately, and has had the privilege of the friendship of King
Menelik.

Revised by Commanding Officers.

THE HISTORY OF THE BOER WAR. By F. H. E. CUN-
LIFFE, Fellow of All Souls' College, Oxford. With many Illustrations,
Plans, and Portraits. Vol. I. Quarto. i$s. Also in Fortnightly
Parts, is. each.

The first volume of this important work is nearly ready. When complete, this book
will give an elaborate and connected account of the military operations in South
Africa from the declaration to the end of the present war. It must remain for some
years the standard History of the War. Messrs. Methuen have been fortunate
enough to secure the co-operation of many commanding officers in the revision
of the various chapters.

The History is finely illustrated.

A PRISONER OF WAR. By COLONEL A. SCHIEL. Crown
Svo. 6s.

This remarkable book contains the experiences of a well-known foreign officer of
the Boer Army from 1896 to 1900 both as a Boer officer and as a prisoner in British
hands. Colonel Schiel, who was captured at Elandslaagte, was a confidential
military adviser of the Transvaal Government, and his story will cause a sensation.

DARTMOOR: A Descriptive and Historical Sketch. By S.
BARING GOULD. With Plans and Numerous Illustrations. Crown
Svo. 6s.

This book attempts to give to the visitor a descriptive history of the antiquities and
natural features of this district. It is profusely illustrated from paintings and from
photographs. Plans are also given of the chief antiquities. The book is uniform
with the author's well-known Book of the West.

THE SIEGE OF MAFEKING. By ANGUS HAMILTON. With

many Illustrations. Crown 8vo. 6s.

This is a vivid, accurate, and humorous narrative of the great siege by the well-
known Correspondent of the Times. Mr. Hamilton is not only an admirable
writer, but an excellent fighter, and he took an active part in the defence of the town.
His narrative of the siege is acknowledged to be far superior to any other account.



MESSRS. METHUEN'S ANNOUNCEMENTS 3

THE PEOPLE OF CHINA. By J. W. ROBERTSON-SCOTT.

With a Map. Crown 8vo. 3^. 6d.

This book of 200 pages contains a complete account of the history, races, government,
religion, social life, army, commerce, and attitude to foreigners of the Chinese.

THE RELIEF OF MAFEKING. By FILSON YOUNG. With

Maps and Illustrations. Crown &vo. 6s.

This book gives a spirited and vigorous account of the work accomplished by
Mahon's flying column and its relief of Mafeking. It also relates the defeat of
Colonel Villebois and his death. The book deals in the main with episodes in
the war which have not yet been described in any work.

WITH THE BOER FORCES. By HOWARD C. HILLEGAS.

With 1 6 Illustrations. Crown 8vo. 6s.

This highly interesting book is a narrative of the episodes of the Boer war by a corre-
spondent with the Boer army. Mr. Hillegas was present at many of the most
exciting and most dramatic episodes of the war. He was with the force which
attempted to relieve Cronje at Paardeberg, was present during a considerable
part of the siege of Ladysmith, at the battle of Colenso, at the surprise of Sanna's
Post. His book, written with dramatic vigour, is a spirited description of the
Boer methods, of their military strength, and contains vivid character sketches of
most of the Boer leaders with whom Sir. Hillegas was on terms of fairly intimate
friendship. This book, though written by one who sympathises with the Boers,
is permeated by a spirit of chivalry, and it contains little that can offend the most
sensitive of Englishmen. It throws a flood of light on many of the episodes
which have been mysterious, and explains the secrets of the many successes which
the Boers have won.

in the University of Dublin. Crown 8vo. 6s.

THE SOUL OF A CHRISTIAN. By F. S. GRANGER, M.A.,
Litt.D. Crown 8vo. 6s.

Professor Granger abandons the conventional method of psychology by which the
individual is taken alone, and instead,he regards him as sharing in and contribut-
ing to the catholic tradition. Hence the book deals not only with the average
religious life, but also with the less familiar experiences of the mystic, the vision-
ary ; and the symbolist. These experiences furnish a clue to poetic creation in its
various kinds, and further, to the miracles which occur during times of religious
enthusiasm.
