8/6 “One of the loveliest gift-books of the season. There are seventy-four illustrations by R. T. Pritchett, and twelve water-colour sketches after F. Jones. With regard to the latter, we may say at once that they are noble specimens of chromo-lithography; indeed, Messrs. Marcus Ward & Co, seem to enjoy an almost unique reputation for their skill in adapting the highest forms of this process to book illustration. The wood. cuts are executed with great breadth of feeling, and are richly suggestive of colour. The descriptive portion of the work is simply and smoothly written; in fact, anybody can read it without experiencing even one momentary sensation of weariness. Messrs. Marcus Ward & Co. may well be proud of the manner in which they have paid their tribute of homage to the grandest of English rivers, and presented us with pen and ink as well as pencilled pictures of scenery dear to every poetic English heart."-Daily Telegraph. The Black Crusoe. From the French of ALFRED SEGUIN. With

Seventy Illustrations engraved on Wood by M. MEAULLE, from Designs by MŇ. H. SCOTT, MEYER, FERDINANDUS, &c. Royal octavo, cloth extra, gilt edges.
