William and Mary in 1688. With 10 portraits newly
etched by Damman. 10 vols, thick Svo, fresh cloth.

(Edinburgh) Boston, 1883

New copyright library edition. ' ' Dr. Lingard's book is the fruit of
great industry, learning and acuteness, directed by no ordinary talent. It is
written in a clear and agreeable manner. The narrative has the perspicuity of
Robertson, with more freedom and fancy. His diction has the ornament of
Gibbon, without his affectation and obscurity. To one desirous of making a
study, and not a mere amusement of the history of his country, we know no
general History of England that we would sooner recommend than the one
before us." — Edinburgh Review.

LiTTR^, de I'Institut (Acaddmie Fran^aise et Academic des
Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres). Also Supplement. 5 vols,
thick large 4to, half red morocco, cloth sides. Paris, 1878

' ' No language that we have ever studied, or attempted to study, possesses a
Dictionary so rich in the history of words as this great work which M. Littre has
fortunately lived long enough to complete. To the love of order, system and
clearness which belongs to the French mind, he has joined a degree of patience
in research and scientific thoroughness in comparison, which we have been accus-
tomed to associate with German rather than with French erudition. The courage
which could undertake such a task as this might have been considered mere uncaj-
culating rashness if the workman had not lived to complete his colossal per-
formance.

" The entire work contains 4,708 pages, and M. Littre's Dictionary contains
twice as much printed matter as the whole of the Waverley Novels, with a few
thousand of novel-pages into the bargain.

" Mere bigness is, however, one of the least of its many claims to attention.
M. Littre is not the first man who has made a big Dictionary, and we all know

reliure in this volume is the reproduction that appeared in the " American Book
Maker " of March, 1887, where Mr. Ingersoll Lockwood says: — '

" Purgold, too, belongs to this period of decorative stamp; but his chief
claim upon the attention of the student arises from the fact that he was the pre-
decessor, if not the instructor, of Bauzonnet.

" On page 66 [of the March, 1887, "American Book Maker"] will be found
a camera reproduction of apiece of work [«. <?., Mr. Pene du Bois's Montesquieu]
