Standard and Popular Juthors.
HE great popularity of the “Little Classics"
has proved anew the truth of Dr. Johnson's
remark: “Books that you may carry to the fire, and hold readily in your hand, are the most use ful after all.” The attractive character of their contents has been very strongly commended to public favor by the convenient size of the volumes. These were not too large to be carried to the fire or held readily in the hand, and consequently they have been in great request wherever they have become known.
The Vest - Pocket Series
consists of volumes yet smaller than the “ Little Classics.” Their Liliputian size, legible type, and flexible cloth binding make them peculiarly convenient for carrying on short journeys; and the excellence of their contents makes them desirable always and everywhere. The series includes
STORIES, ESSAYS, SKETCHES, AND POEMS
SELECTED FROM THE WRITINGS OF
Emerson, Longfellow, Whittier, Hawthorne, Carlyle, Aldrich, Hood,
AND OTHERS OF EQUAL FAME.
The volumes are beautifully printed, many of them illustrated, and bound in flexible cloth covers, at a uniform price of
FIFTY CENTS EACH.
