JUST PUBLISHED BY CAREY & LEA.



PRIVATE MEMOIRS OF NAPOLEON

BONAPARTE, from the French of M.

FAUVELET DE BOURRIENNE, Private Secre-
tary to the Emperor. SECOND AMERICAN

EDITION, complete in one volume.

%.* This edition contains almost a fourth
more matter than the previous one, as in order
;o render it as perfect as possible, extracts have
seen given from the Memoirs from St. Helena,
Official Reports, &c. &c. in all cases where
they differ from the statements of M. de Bour-

nne.

' This English translation, which has been
very faithfully rendered, is still more valuable
than the original work, as upon all points where
.ny obliquity from other published recitals oc-
curs, the translator has given several accounts,
and thus, in the form of notes, we are present-
ed with the statements obtained from Napo-
leon's own dictation at St. Helena, from the
Memoirs of the Duke of Rovigo, of General
Rapp, of Constant, from the writings of the
Marquis of Londonderry, &,c*." U. Ser. Jour.

" Those who desire to form a correct esti-
mate of the character of one of the most extra-
ordinary men " that ever lived in the tide of
time," will scarcely be without it. The present
edition possesses peculiar advantages.

The peculiar advantages of position in re-
gard to his present subject, solely enjoyed by
M. de Bourrienne, his literary accomplish-
ments and moral qualifications, have already
obtained for these memoirs the first rank in
contemporary and authentic history. In
France, where they had been for years ex-
pected with anxiety, and where, since the
revolution, no work connected with that peri-
od or its consequent events has created so
great a sensation, the volumes of Bourrienne
have, from the first, been accepted as the
only trustworthy exhibition of the private life
and political principles of Napoleon.

" We know from the best political authority
now living in England, that the writer's ac-
counts are perfectly corroborated by facts."
Lit. Gaz.

" The only authentic Life of Napoleon ex-
tant." Courier.

"This splendid publication that literally
leaves nothing to be desired." Atlas.

" These volumes may be read with all the
interest of a romance." Courier.

" No person who is desirous rightly to ap-
preciate the character of Bonaparte, will ne-
glect the perusal of this work; whoever
wishes to know, not merely the General or
the Emperor, but what the man really was,
will find him well pictured here." Times.

"The completes! personal recollections o
Napoleon that have appeared." Morn. Post.

" As a part of the history of the most ex-
traordinary man, and the most extraordinary
times that ever invited elucidation, these me-
moirs must continue to the latest ages to be
records of invaluable interest" Lit Gaz.



THE BRAVO, by the author of the " Spy,"

" Pilot," " Red Rover," &c. In 2 vols. 12mo.

" Let us honestly avow in conclusion, that
n addition to the charm of an interesting fic-
tion to be found in these pages, there is more
mental power in them, more matter that sets
people thinking, more of that quality that is
accelerating the onward movement of the
world, than in all the Scotch novels that have
so deservedly won our admiration." New
Monthly Magazine.

'This new novel from the pen of our
countryman, Cooper, will win new laurels for
him. It is full of dramatic interest " hair-
breadth escapes" animated and bustling
scenes on the canals, in the prisons, on the
Rialto, in the Adriatic, and in the streets of
Venice." N. Y. Courier fy Enquirer.

" Of the whole work, we may confidently
say that it is very able a performance of ge-
nius and power." Nat. Gazette.

" The Bravo will, we think, tend much to
exalt and extend the fame of its author. We
have hurried through its pages with an avidi-
ty which must find its apology in the interest-
ing character of the incidents and the very
vivid and graphic style in which they are de-
scribed."

By the same author.
THE HEIDEN-MAEUR, or PAGAK CAMP.

In 2 vols. (In the Press.)
SALMONIA; or, Days of Fly Fishing; by

SIR HUMPHRY DAVY.

" One of the most delightful labors of lei-
sure ever seen ; not a few of the most beauti-
ful phenomena of nature are here lucidly ex-
plained." Gentleman's Magazine.

NATURAL HISTORY OF SELBORNE
AND ITS INHABITANTS. By the Rey.
GILBERT WHITE. 18mo.

THE MECHANISM OF THE HEAVENS, by

MRS. SOMERVILLE. In 18mo.

" We possess already innumerable dis-
courses on Astronomy, in which the wonders
of the heavens and their laws are treated of;
but we can say most conscientiously that we
are acquainted with none not even La Place's
own beautiful expose in his System du Monde,
in which all that is essentially interesting in
the motions and laws of the celestial bodies, or
which is capable of popular enunciation, is so
admirably, so graphically, or we may add, so
unaffectedly arid simply placed before us. * * *
Is it asking too much of Mrs. Somerville to ex-
press a hope that she will allow this beautiful
preliminary Dissertation to be printed sepa-
rately, for the delight and instruction of thou-
sands of readers, young and old, who cannot
