LOVE ME, OR LOVE ME NOT

NEW NOVEL AT ALL THE LIBRARLES.

MALCOLM.

By GEORGE MAC DONALD.
Second Edition. Three Vols.

'Mr. Mac Donald has not only put into his (Malcolm's) mouth much of the fine poetry of which the book is full, but has also given to his

part active and passive heroism of the most romantic kind Of

the other characters, Duncan, the aged and blind Highland piper, is admirably drawn. The intensity of his love and hate, of his pride and prejudice, is brought out with the utmost vividness in his relations with

Malcolm and his master But these few and slight blemishes are

lost in the host of beautiful images with which Mr. Mac Donald delights his readers.'—Pall Mall Gazette.
