“Set forth in a style that provides plenty of entertainment.
.... Bright and readable."-Times. THE LAND OF THE DOLLAR. Third Edition.
Crown 8vo, 6s. “One of the smartest books of travel which has appeared for a long time past....... Brings the general appearance of Transatlantic urban and rural life so clearly before the mind's eye of the reader, that a perusal of his work almost answers the purpose of a personal inspection. New York has probably never been more lightly and cleverly sketched."- Daily Telegraph.
WITH THE CONQUERING TURK: CONFESSIONS
OF A BASHI-BAZOUK. With Four Maps. Small demy 8vo,
10s. 6d. “The most entertaining of the volumes we have had about the Ten Weeks' Campaign in the spring....... It gives brightly, and without any desperate striving after realism, a vivid idea of what a correspondent with the Turkish forces in Thessaly went through." -Times.

The original intention was to print the concluding chapters of this book from telegraphic reports. In consequence, however, of delays between Omdurman and wire-head, of the great interest attaching to the events of September 2nd and the ensuing days, and of the desirability of illustrating the account of the battle of Omdurman by plans, it has been thought better to delay the publication of this book a week, and produce the final chapters in a fuller form.
