DISTORY OF SCOTLAND. By PATRICK FRASER TYTLER,

Esq. Third Edition; in 7 vols. 8vo, published at £4:45. now reduced to £2:12: 6.

TYTLER'S SCOTLAND. Second Edition, stereotyped ; in 9 vols.

post 8vo, a very convenient size for reading, now reduced to £2:55.

A very complete and elaborate Index to each of the Three Editions is now published in a separate half volume, price 5s. It is not only an Index of Matters, but refers to every name of Person or Place to be found in the work.

"It is with great satisfaction that we hail the appearance of Mr. Tytler's work. We venture to predict it will become, and long remain, the Standard History of Scotland."-Quarterly Review.

“The evidence of this very interesting fact will appear in the third volume of Mr. Tytler's History of Scotland. Like the tenor of the work in general, it reflects the highest honour on Mr. Tytler's talents and industry." --Sir Walter Scott's History of Scotland.

“See Sir Walter Scott's Review (in the Quarterly) of Vol. I. and II. of Mr. Tytler's elaborate work ; a work which he meant to criticise throughout in similar detail, for he considered it as a very important one." - Lockhart's Life of Scott.

In one very large vol. 8vo, with a portrait and Memoir of the

Author, published at £1: 1s. now reduced to 12s. TAMIESON'S SCOTTISH DICTIONARY, Abridged by JOHN

JOHNSTONE; containing all the words in the Dictionary and Supplement, in four vols 4to, incorporated in one alphabet; with the various meanings and etymons; and embodying the proverbial sayings, and a brief description of the usages and manners of Scotland.

« In this Abridgement every word contained in the Quarto Dictionary and Supplement is carefully incorporated; and the various meanings attached to each, along with the etymons, are given at much greater length than is usual in works of this kind. The charm of Dr. Jamieson's great work is the mass of antiquarian lore which his Dictionary and Supplement contain. In an Abridgement of four quarto volumes, comparatively little of this can be embodied in a single octavo volume. As far, however, as his limited space would allow, the Editor has endeavoured to incorporate a succinct account of the old usages and manners of Scotland.”--Preface.

EDINBURGH: ADAM & CHARLES BLACK.

HISTORY OF ST. ANDREWS, With a full account of the Recent Improvements in the City, by the

Rev. CHARLES ROGER, F.S.A., Scot. One vol. post 8vo, cloth, lettered, and illustrated with a plan of the

City, and 14 highly finished Engravings on Steel. Price 3s. 6d.

“This volume, we must in strict justice characterise as a model guide book. .... Its appearance will do a great deal to call attention to, and revive an interest in, the beauties and antiquities, as well as the mere physical amenities of St. Andrews, and add largely to the number of its casual and regular visitors."--Edinburgh Evening Post.

“ This is a work which, whether in point of composition, typography, or illustration, may fairly challenge comparison with any production of the kind which we have seen." - Edinburgh News.

“ The biographical sketches of distinguished men, natives, or connected with the University, is one of the most attractive features of the volume.”Edinburgh Advertiser.

“Mr. Roger's History' is the best history of St. Andrews that has yet been written."--Fifeshire Journal

Edinburgh : ADAM & CHARLES BLACK.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. “ This is a very tastefully got up publication, in letterpress and illustrations; and on that account, as well as from its authorship, we are disposed to think and write vory favourably of it. We congratulate Mr. Peacock on his very creditable production."--Perthshire Courier.

« The intelligent stranger who wishes to carry with him a token of his visit to that city of the Tay, will not easily find a more appropriate memorial than Mr. Peacock's volume."- Edinburgh Evening Courant.

“ Tourists and others visiting Scotland will find this work interesting and useful."
