OLD COUNTRY LIFE.

By S. BARING GOULD, M.A.

WITH SIXTY-SEVEN ILLUSTRATIONS BY W. PARKINSON,
F. D. BEDFORD, AND F. MASEY.



" It is a pleasure to turn to a book so bright and cheery and picturesque as Old
Country Life. No man knows or loves quaint Old England better than Mr. Gould.
The chapters are all excellent, and his delightful volume is brightened with snatches
of old ballads, of which Mr. Baring Gould is an industrious collector, and illustrated
with clever and comical drawings." — The Times.

" We took it up originally with a mere intention of glancing through the pictures,
treating it only as a picture book ; but we were fascinated by the letterpress, and did
not rise from our chair till we had read the book through. A delightful gift book." —
John Bull.

"In this most welcome and interesting volume Mr. Baring Gould, with fine,
free, felicitous touch, possible only to one ' to the manner born,' describes in a series
of character sketches, country life in the earlier part of the century just closing, a
period more prolific in changes ihan any preceding; and how greatly they have
affected, for good and evil, every part of our social system, can be moie clearly ascer-
tained from such a book than from the solider records of graver history. Old Country
Life, which we very heartily commend to our readers, possesses a distinctly unique
old-time mellowness and fragrance of its own." — Land and Water.

"Mr. Baring Gould always writes well ; but rarely has he given us pleasanter
work than his delightful gossip about old times, old customs, and old families, called Old
Country Life. The volume is in every respect a charming one." — Court Journal.

"Here we have the author at his best, describing country life, and telling the
history of county families. Good as the illustrations are, they do not surpass the life-
like sketches in pen and ink." — Vanity Fair.

" This is a volume of extreme interest to all of us who love our country, with its
many and varied traditions and all the incidental details peculiar to English men and
women of the good old stamp. We most cordially recommend this book, which is
well worthy of its author's reputation." — St. Stephen's Review.

" Old Country Life, as healthy wholesome reading, full of breezy life and move-
ment, full of quaint stories vigorously told, will not be excelled by any book to be
published throughout the year. Sound, hearty, and English to the core." — World.

HISTORIC ODDITIES and STRANGE EVENTS.

By S. BARING GOULD, M.A. Demy 8vo, 10/6. Second Edition.

"A collection of exciting and entertaining chapters. The whole volume is
delightful reading." — Times.

" The stories are well retailed, with admirable conciseness and point." —
Athenaeum.

" The work, besides being agreeable to read, is valuable for purposes of reference.
The entire contents are stimulating and delightful." — Notes and Queries.



By P. H. DITCH FIELD, M.A.

Oxxv 6[n0li*lj Village*:

ftltcir $tont and their gMtipiifejg.

By P. H. Ditchfield, M.A., F.R.H.S., Rector of Barkham, Berks.
Post 8vo, 2s. 6d., Illustrated.

" A pleasantly written little volume, giving much interesting information
concerning villages and village life." — Pall Mall Gazette.

" The object of the author is not so much to describe any particular village as
to give a clear idea of what village life has been in England from the earliest
historical times. An extremely amusing and interesting little book, which should
find a place in every parochial library." — Guardian.

" It was a happy thought that inspired Mr. Ditchfield to give us these delight-
ful sketches, which, beginning with quite prehistoric times, gives us in much
pleasant antiquarian detail a succinct, gossipy history of the village from the days
of the Saxon Hundred down to the present time." — Public Opinion.



Under the above title Messrs. Methuen propose to commence
in the Autumn the publication of a series of short biographies,
free from party bias, of the most prominent leaders of religious
life and thought in this and the last century.

Each volume will contain a succinct account and estimate of the
career, the influence, and the literary position of the subject of the
memoir.

Mr. A. M. M. Stedman will edit the series, and the following
are already arranged —

CARDINAL NEWMAN. A'. //. Hut ton. [Octoh-r.

JOHN KEBLE. IV. Lock.

CHARLES SIMEON. //. C. G. Moule.
