ANECDOTES OF THE ARISTOCRACY,

AND
EPISODES IN ANCESTRAL STORY.

By J. BERNARD BURKE, Esq.,
Author of “ The History of the Landed Gentry," “ The Peerage and Baronetage,” &c.

SECOND AND CHEAPER EDITION, 2 vols., post 8vo, 21s. bound. " Mr. Burke has here given us the most curious incidents, the most stirring tales, and the most remarkable circumstances connected with the histories, public and private, of our noble houses and aristocratic families, and has put them into a shape which will preserve them in the library, and render them the favourite study of those who are interested in the romance of real life. These stories, with all the reality of established fact, read with as much spirit as the tales of Boccacio, and are as full of strange matter for reflection and amazement.”—Britannia.

"We cannot estimate too highly the interest of Mr. Burke's entertaining and instructive work. For the curious nature of the details, the extraordinary anecdotes related, the strange scenes described, it would be difficult to find a parallel for it. It will be read by every one.”-Sunday Times.
