THE CRESCENT AND THE CROSS
ROMANCE AND REALITIES OF EASTERN TRAVEL.
By ELIOT B. G. WARBURTON, Esq. Eighth And Cheaper Edition, 1 vol., with numerous Illustrations, 10s. 6d. bound.
"Independently of its value as an original narrative, and its useful and interesting information, this work is remarkable for the colouring power and play of fancy with which its descriptions are enlivened. Among its greatest and most lasting charms is its reverent and serious spirit."—Quarterly Review.
"We could not recommend a better book as a travelling companion."—United Servict Magazine.
ENGLAND IN THE NEW WORLD.
Edited by ELIOT WARBURTON, Esq.,
Author of " The Crescent and the Cross."
"We recommend ' Hochelaga' most heartily, in case any of our readers may as yet be unacquainted with it."—Quarterly Review.
"This work has already reached a third edition. We shall be surprised if it do not go through many. It possesses almost every qualification of a good book—grace, variety, and vigour of style—a concentrated power of description, which has all the effect of elaborate painting—information carefully collected and judiciously communicated—sound and enlarged views of important questions—a hearty and generous love of country—and the whole pervaded by a refined but sometimes caustic humour, which imparts a constant attraction to its pages. We can cordially recommend it to our readers, as well for the amusement of its lighter portions, the vivid brilliancy of its descriptions, and the solid information it contains respecting Canada, and the position generally of England in the new world."—John Bull.

22 COLBURN AND CO.'S NEW PUBLICATIONS.
THE YEAR-BOOK OF THE COUNTRY;
OR, THE FIELD, THE FOREST, AND THE FIRESIDE.
AUTHOR OF "THE BOOK OF THE SEASONS," &C. 1 VOLUME, WITH
OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.
"The world is always happy to hear from Mr. Howitt concerning'the seasons and thensigns '—the garden, the woodland, and their ever-changing shows of beauty—and the characters and humours which animate and chequer rural life. He treats of these topics with that affluence of poetical imagination and experience which there is no counterfeiting —with that thorough love which, coming from the heart of the writer, goes direct to the heart of the reader. The present volume is as fresh in spirit and as rich in matter as if it were the first of its family. The illustrations by Mr. Foster are excellent. The book is at once welcome to read and goodly to see. It is richly, poetically, picturesquely various. We cannot doubt of its having a welcome as wide as its range \ot contents, and as cordial as the love of man and of nature, which every line of it breathes."—Athenaeum.
"To all lovers of country life we recommend this excellent volume, as abounding in thoughts and suggestions eminently calculated to enlarge the sphere of their enjoyment as well as their usefulness; and to all lovers of the town we recommend it as likely to reform their tastes, and awaken them to pure delights which they have not yet tasted. The work is a complete country companion for the whole year—in the field, in the forest, and at the fireside. It is divided into twelve sections, each of which relates to a particular month of the year, and not only describes all the natural features of the season, but the habits of life and customs appropriate to each."—Morning Post.
"A highly amusing book, supplying, from rural anecdote, description, and observation, something appropriate to each season. The illustrations are very beautiful."—Standard.
"A perfect transcript of rural life in all its phases. In every respect a most attractive book. Mr. Howitt paints nature as it is, and gives descriptions of its endless charms with an elegance of manner that wins its way with readers of every class."—Messenger.
"This very attractive and delightful work is evidently one written con amove. Mr. Howitt's productions have always displayed an intense, and, so to speak, elegant and cultivated love of Old England's rural beauties; and the present book will form an admirable companion to his 'Book of the Seasons.' In the present instance there is an abundant and interestingly applied variety of matter illustrative of human pleasures and pursuits in the country. A country life, indeed, is here seen in all its points of view —in the field, the forest, and by the fireside. It is curious to observe the variety of subjects treated of, either in prose or poetry, in these right pleasant and entertaining pages. The natural characteristics, peculiar customs, and usual avocations incident to each month in the year are described in a striking manner. Anecdotes, sketches of character, &c., are introduced with considerable skill and effect, adding much to the interesting nature of the book. The 'Autumnal Excursions' form some of the most attractive parts of the volume; and the legends scattered throughout are told with peculiar spirit and effect. Indeed, the work is altogether a charming one; and the illustrations, admirably engraved on wood, from exceedingly clever and pretty designs, by Mr. Birket Poster, are quite worthy of the pages in whioh they appear."—Morning Advertiser.
MR. DISRAELI'S CONINGSBY
Cheap Standard Edition, With A New Preface.
_ In 1 Toi., with Portrait, 6s. bound.
"We aTe glad to see that the finest work of Disraeli has been sent out in the same shape as those of Dickens, Bnlwer, and other of our best novelists, at such a price as to place them within the reach of the most moderate means. 'Coningsby' has passed from the popularity of a season to an enduring reputation as a standard work. It is not merely as a novel, however, that' Coningsby' is interesting, but as a popular exposition of the author's political ideas. It is a valuable contribution to popular literature."—Weekly Chronicle.
By W. J. BRODERIP, Esq.,F.R.S.
Cheaper Edition, 1 vol., post 8vo, 6s. bound.
"We believe we do not exaggerate in saying that, since the publication of White's 1 Natural History of Selborne,' and of the * Introduction to Entomology,' by Kirby and Spence, no work in our language is better calculated than the ' Zoological Recreations' to mini the avowed aim of its author—to furnish a hand-book which may cherish or awaken a love for natural history."—Quarterly Review.

ADVENTURES OF A GREEK LADY,
THE ADOPTED DAUGHTER OF THE LATE QUEEN CAROLINE,
Written By Herself. 2 vols., post 8vo, 21s. bound.
"The chief interest of this more than ordinarily interesting book lies in the notices it furnishes of the unfortunate Queen Caroline. From the close of 1814 till her Royal Highness's return to England the author was never absent from her for a single day. All is ingenuously and artlessly told, and the plain truth finds its war at once to the reader's judgment and feelings."—Court Journal.
