GRISELDA:

A Dramatic Poem. Translated from the German of FREDERICK HALM,

By Q. E. D. Royal 18mo., price 4s. cloth gilt.
“ An elegant translation of an elegant German poem."-Athenæum.

“In conclusion we would strongly recommend Griselda' to our readers; assuring them that, in our opinion, they will not easily meet with anything so deserving of popularity, cither from the purity of the style, the interest of the story, the fidelity of the translation, the easy flow of the rhyme, or the elegance of the language."-Foreign and Colonial Quarterly Review.

THE COLUMBIAD :

Comprising Geographical Sketches, and a Narrative of Nautical Adventures in the Eastern Seas, including the perils of a storm, and providential escape from shipwreck: with Meditations on a Future State. By ARCHIBALD TUCKER RITCHIE, Esq. In demy 8vo., price 10s.

handsomely bound in cloth.

“ Under this title the author has given a poetical narrative of his voyage in the Indian Ocean, somewhat in the manner of 'Falconer's Shipwreck.'

The most remarkable passage is that where he announces a new altempt to explain the phenomena of Geology in connexion with the first chapter of Genesis. We would recommend the perusal of this poem, which contains some pretty passages both to interest and instruct the reader.”Edinburgh Weekly Journal. “ This is an interesting poem.

In so far as it is descriptive, it is a painting from Nature, and a narrative of real life. The author can say, 'All which I saw, and part of which I was.' If to landsmen the poem is interesting, it must be peculiarly so to Those whose march is on the deep.'

The author is evidently a person of right principles, of a kind and pious heart, and of a generous and polished mind.

He has a higher object ihan merely giving pleasure; he seeks to benefit his readers.”

Scottish Guardian.

A Poem in Two Cantos. Descriptive of Scenery in India, the Departure

India Company's Army. By JAMES HENRY BURKE, Esq., of Marble
Hill, Lieutenant Bombay Engineers, Member of the Bombay Branch of

Royal Asiatic Society. In demy 8vo., price 6s. bound.
“ The Stanzas of Mr. Burke bespeak at once high feeling, a vigorous cultivated in-
telligence, and a delicate poetic taste."-Merning Herald.

“The execution is even, finished, and good.” --Weekly Chronicle.

THE ORIENTAL PORTFOLIO:

A Series of splendid Illustrations of the Scenery, Antiquities, Architecture, Manners, Costumes, &c. of the East. From original Sketches in the collections of Lord William Bentinck, K.C.B., Captain R. M. Grindlay, Lady Wilmot Horton, Sir Henry Willock, K.L.S., Thomas Bacon, Esq., James Baillie Fraser, Esq., and other travellers. The Literary Department of the Work by HORACE H. WILSON, Esq., M.A., F.R.S., &c. &c. The series is now completed, comprising eleven beautifully finished Plates, tinted in imitation of Drawings. Price 21. 2s. elegantly bound

in large folio.

The object of this undertaking is to supply what has long been felt to be a desideratum; namely, Graphic Illustrations of the Scenery, Antiquities, Architecture, Manners, Costumes, &c. of the East, which, as the theatre of so many brilliant military achievements, and such extensive commercial enterprise, is daily increasing in interest with the British public. The Drawings for the work are made by the first Artists in the Kingdom, from the Original Sketches taken on the spot.

THE BYRON GALLERY :

A Series of thirty-six Historical Embellishments, illustrating the Poetical Works of LORD BYRON ; beautifully engraved from Original Drawings and Paintings by Sir Thomas Lawrence, P.R.A., H. Howard, R.A., A. E. Chalon, R.A., J. Stothard, R.A., R. Westall, R.A., and other eminent Artists : adapted, by their size and excellence, to bind up with and embellish every edition published in England of LORD BYRON'S Works, and also the various sizes and editions published in France, Germany, and America. Price 21s. elegantly bound, forming a splendid

ornament for the drawing-room table.

“Adequately to describe the delicate beauty of these splendid plates does not appear to lie within the power of language. There is not an admirer of the works of the departed noble poet who can feel satisfied that he has a perfect edition of them, unless the “Byron Gallery’ be attached to it. There is no instance in which excellence in poetry and the arts are so admirably combined.”—Imperial Magazine.
