OPINIONS OF MISERRIMUS.

" Originally destined for private circulation, general approval has called it before the public; and the lovers of vivid excitement have now their enjoyment in their power.... It is strikingly original, forcible, and interesting.”—London Literary Gazette.

“This is the impassioned work of a man of talent.”London Metropolitan Magazine.

“We dare say it will be discovered that ‘Miserrimus' is the production of some established writer.”-London Allas.

“It takes a convulsive grasp upon the attention... When a man becomes a fiend by the perversion of his intellect, here is the writer to draw his hideous portrait." -Spectator.

“It is written with great power, and, consequently, is read with ravenous avidity.” -Sunday Times.

“Some portions of the story are such as Goethe himself, in some fit of morbid enthusiasm, might have em• bodied in poetical prose.”Court Journal.

It abounds in subtle and piercing views of the darker and more tragic passions.... We hail with cordial welcome a writer of so much promise.”-New Monthly Magazine.

“We have read it with feelings of sincere gratification.”—The Critic.
