This edition is the only one which contains
the complete book as originally pub-

and many Footnotes.

' "The History of Thomas Ellwood" holds a
high place among the masterpieces of
autobiography, and we know few books
that better deserve reprinting. More-
over, Mr. C. G. Crump's new edition is
accurate and convenient, and we com-
mend it ungrudgingly to all those who
love sound and vigorous English.'

Tennyson. THE EARLY POEMS OF
ALFRED, LORD TENNYSON,
Edited, with Notes and an Introduc-

An elaborate edition of the celebrated
volume which was published in its
final and definitive form in 1853. This
edition contains a long Introduction and
copious Notes, textual and explanatory.
It also contains in an Appendix all
the Poems which Tennyson afterwards
omitted.

'Mr. Collins is almost an ideal editor of
Tennyson. His qualities as a critic are
an exact and accurate scholarship, and
a literary judgment, which has been
trained and polished by the closest study
of classics both ancient and modern.
Mr. Collins' introduction is a thoroughly
sound and sane appreciation of the
merits and demerits of Tennyson.'

Messrs. METHUEN have in preparation an edition of those novels of Charles
Dickens which have now passed out of copyright. Mr. George Gissing,
whose critical study of Dickens is both sympathetic and acute, has written an
Introduction to each of the books, and a very attractive feature of this edition
will be the illustrations of the old houses, inns, and buildings, which Dickens
described, and which have now in many instances disappeared under the
touch of modern civilisation. Another valuable feature will be a series of
topographical and general notes to each book by Mr. F. G. Kitton. The books
will be produced with the greatest care as to printing, paper and binding.

The first volumes are :

THE PICKWICK PAPERS. With Illustrations by E. H. NEW. Two Volumes.
' As pleasant a copy as any one could desire. The notes add much to the value of the
edition, and Mr. New's illustrations are also historical. The volumes promise well
for the success of the edition.' Scotsman.

Messrs. METHUEN intend to produce a series of small books under the

literatures, in the domains of fiction, poetry, and belles lettres. The series
will also contain several volumes of selections in prose and verse.

The books will be edited with the most sympathetic and scholarly care.
Each one will contain an Introduction which will give (i) a short biography of
the author, (2) a critical estimate of the book. Where they are necessary,
short notes will be added at the foot of the page.

Each book will have a portrait or frontispiece in photogravure, and the
volumes will be produced with great care in a style uniform with that of ' The
Library of Devotion.'
