Printed by T. and A. Constahi.e, Printers to His Majesty
at the Edinburgh University Press



Emma, Lady Hamilton. From New and Original
Sources and Documents, together with an Appendix of Notes
and New Letters. By Walter Sichel, With a Coloured
Plate, numerous Portraits, Facsimiles, and other Illustrations,
in Photogravure, Collotype, etc., many of them hitherto un-
published. Fourth Impression. Demy 8vo. Price 21s. net.

PRESS OPINION.

' It is impossible to think of Nelson, impossible, at least, for this generation,
without dwelling upon Emma, Lady Hamilton, the mysterious, controversial,
and compelling influence in his life. . . . Mr. Sichel has followed this baffling
personality with an interest that absorbs the reader, and a fulness of knowledge
that can hardly be too highly praised. What the historical biographer can do,
he has done most fully and most ably. Naturally, the volume is deeply interest-
ing, vivid, life-like, and painstaking. The glamour of the subject, and the
reputation of the biographer are an instant guarantee of that. Mr. Sichel has
surely written the last word on the subject.' — The Standard.

Catherine de Medici and the French Reforma-
tion. By Edith Sichel, Author of ' Women and Men of the
French Renaissance,' etc. With 12 Illustrations. Demy 8vo.
15s. net.

' Miss Edith Sichel has done a fine and distinguished piece of work. She has
written a brilliant and a scholarly book ; a book it is both tempting and difficult
to overpraise.' — The Times.

The Development of the European Nations,

1870-1900. By J. Holland Rose, Litt. D., Author of ' The
Life of Napoleon I.,' etc. With Maps and Plans. Demy 8vo.
i8s. net.

* In 1870 the Franco-Prussian war broke on the unwary like a summer storm.
The thirty years then begun are the subject of Dr. Rose's interesting volume, in
which it is his special effort to trace the causes which produced such important
results in the domestic and external affairs of European Nations. He has
accomplished his task with exceptional success.'— Z/Jif Standard.



Almond of Loretto : Being the Life and a Selec-
tion from the Letters of Hely Hutchinson Almond, Head-
master of Loretto School (1862-1903). By R. J. Mackenzie,
M.A. With Frontispiece Portrait. Demy 8vo. 12s.6d.net.

' Dr. Almond's reputation will grow with the progress of common sense. It
is not unlikely that he will one day be thought a greater man than Arnold or
Thring, whom he criticised with severity, or Kennedy. . . . That a capable
writer, an intellectual schoolmaster, and a sympathetic friend, should have
written the history of the venture and its progress should be a real boon to
education. . . . The personality of the man of whose influence Loretto was the
centre, was felt in widening circles by the world at large.' — The Outlook.

Burford Papers : Being Letters of Samuel Crisp

to his Sister at Burford, and other Studies of a Century (1745-
1845). By William Holden Hutton, B.D., Author of 'By
Thames and Cotswold,' 'The Letters of William Stubbs,' etc.
With numerous Illustrations. Demy 8vo. 7s. 6d. net.

From the Preface : — ' Such unity as these " Stories of a Century" possess
is due to their all, I believe, having been written either to or in a house at
Burford, in Oxfordshire. . . . The further illustrations, which we gain from
these letters of Samuel Crisp, of the literary circle in which Fanny Burney
moved at the time of her first great success will, I hope, be welcomed by all
those to whom Dr. Johnson and the Thrales, as well as the author of " Evelina,"
are old friends. I think that the other details, mere domestic, of the letters —
medical, pecuniary, and the like — are also worth preserving ; and certainly the
picture which is given of the writer herself is a delightful one.'

Part of a Man's Life. By Thomas Wentworth

HiGGiNSON. Illustrated with numerous Portraits and Fac-
simile Letters. Demy 8vo. los. 6d. net.

A book of reminiscences and opinions on matters social, political, and literary,
by the friend of Longfellow, Lowell, Bryant, Emerson, and almost all the
eminent Americans of the last half century.

Great Englishmen of the i6th Century. By

Sidney Lee. With Portraits. Demy 8vo. 7s. 6d. net.

'This is quite the best work that Mr. Sidney Lee has given us, with the pos-
sible exception of his introduction to Elizabethan Sonnets in "An English
Garner." ' — Academy and Literature.
