Greville, and Wedderburn while they were in
the plenitude of their ripe and hitherto match
less powers; the indefatigable and able defender in all these callow years of principles and measures that were the direct antipodes of those doctrines of liberty and reform of which in his maturer years he was the ablest and most eloquent advocate; and at twentyfour a Lord of the Treasury, a rebel against the dictation of the Premier who was his political leader, and a political knight-errant who cared not whether his foes were robbers or true men if only there were enough of them of the heaviest calibre—certainly the early career of Fox was one of the most remarkable in history, and as fertile as any in astounding and interesting surprises. Mr. Trevelyan's memoir of this remarkable man is written with the literary skill and thorough mastery of the subject that were conspicuous in his memoir of Lord Macaulay. Before entering upon the biography he gives a concise account of Fox's immediate ancestors: of his grandfather, Sir Stephen Fox, who was the founder of the family, and the stanch friend of the Stuarts; and, at greater length, of Fox's father, Henry Fox, the first Lord Holland, one of the ablest, most venal, and most corrupt men in an age that abounded in statesmen and dignified officials who vied with each other in wickedness and rascality. The account of Fox's father includes a graphic extended retrospect of the political intrigues and political combinations of which he had been an industrious architect, and which led Fox to identify himself in the early part of his career with measures and principles that he afterward abhorred, and of which he became the most impassioned and most redoubtable foe. It also includes a survey of the social conditions that ushered in the life of Fox, that colored his early years, and that stamped his character with the stains of a vice that were indelible. Mr. Trevelyan's memoir is as much historical as it is biographical, and it is so because there was scarcely a public act of Fox's life, even in his earliest and most wayward years, that was not the result of causes that were historical or that did not lead to results which became so. The horizon of Mr. Trevelyan's picture is a wide one, but all its principal lines converge upon one central imposing figure. Of course the present volume deals only with Fox while he was in his youth, before he had developed his greatest virtues and best powers. Having carried Fox through the least creditable portion of his life, we infer that it must be Mr. Trevelyan's purpose, at some future day, to complete the half-told story, taking up the thread of the narrative where he now drops it, after Fox had detached himself from the early surroundings that had so nearly spoiled him, and when, “having dissolved his partnership with Sandwich and Wedderburn,” he “united himself to Burke and Chatham and Savile in their crusade
against the tyranny which was trampling out English liberty in the colonies, and the corruption that was undermining it at home.”
MR. Towle has thrown the fascinating narrative of Marco Polo,” the great thirteenthcentury Venetian traveller, into the form of a tale, of which Marco Polo himself is the central heroic figure, and in which the thrilling story of the marvellous sights he saw, the strange countries and peoples he visited, the exciting events he witnessed, the valorous deeds he performed, the romantic adventures he encountered, and the hair-breadth escapes he experienced, is told with faith-compelling circumstantiality. Six hundred years have gone by since Marco Polo's delightful narrative was first given to the world, but it has lost none of its original freshness by the lapse of time. Mr. Towle's version of it is fully in accord with the spirit of the veracious oldtime chronicler, and faithfully reproduces the dramatic scenes and incidents in which he was a leading actor.
THE latest volume in the series of “Famous American Indians” is an excellent epitome, by Edward Eggleston and Lillie Eggleston Seelye, of the conquest of Mexico," and of the lives and characters of Montezuma and his valiant conqueror. The compilers have drawn their historical facts from the letters of Cortez and the chronicle of stout old Bernal Diaz, one of the veterans of Cortez, who accompanied him in the invasion, participated with him in more than a hundred battles, and was an eye-witness of nearly every important action and event from the landing of the Spaniards to the siege and surrender of the capital. To those who have not access to I’rescott's brilliant and more elaborate history this volume supplies a concise and authentic sketch of the conquest, including picturesque descriptions of the physical features of the country, and satisfactory accounts of the aboriginal people of Mexico, and the state of their advancement in religion, science, art, and civilization.
THREE additional volumes of the “English Men of Letters Series,” being Leslie Stephen's Life of Dr. Johnson, Richard H. Hutton's Life of Sir Walter Scott, and Anthony Trollope's Life of Thackeray, are placed within reach of readers of limited means by their publication in a single number of the “Franklin Square Library.” The value of these works for popular circulation resides not merely in the fact that they are accurate and entertaining biographical sketches of representative men of letters prepared by living writers of distinguished abilities, but in the close and suggestive views they give of these great writers in particulars that are important for example and encouragement, and which are susceptible of a personal application by the clerk, the artisan, the schoolboy, and even the day-laborer, into whose hands they may chance to fall. We refer especially to the close views which they afford of opportunities improved and difficulties surmounted, to the lucid outlines which they give of the productions of these eminent men, and to their instructive estimates of the personal and intellectual character and the rank and place in literature of each of them. As instrumentalities for educating the minds and refining the tastes of the masses, the influence of such publications can not be overestimated.

No volume in the excellent series of “Epochs of Ancient History” is on a subject of greater interest, or is better adapted to the needs of the general reader, than Mr. Curteis's Rise of the Macedonian Empire," recently published. Recognizing the fact that the climate and physical characteristics of a country exert a strongly determining influence upon the character, the institutions, and the history of a people, Mr. Curteis opens his historical summary with a brief but comprehensive geographical and topographical sketch of Macedon, pointing out by the way the contrasts and divergences between the Hellenes and Macedonians and the country of each. This thoughtful sketch is followed by an outline summary of the kings of Macedon before Philjp, and a graphic description of the social and political state of Macedon and Hellas at his accession, after which Mr. Curteis enters upon his proper task. This comprises a succinct history of the reigns and conquests of Philip and Alexander, and involves quite elaborate accounts of the progress of events by which Athens was reduced from her supremacy, and Greece subjected piecemeal to Philip—events which paved the way, by the dissensions and weakness of its nearest and most powerful competitors, for the growth and consolidation of the Macedonian monarchy and the subsequent conquest of Asia by Alexander. Far the larger part of the volume is appropriated to the career of Alexander, to which, indeed, the preceding events were only the historical preliminaries and preparatives. Mr. Curteis's sketch of the life of the hero is discriminating and equitable, and notwithstanding its extreme condensation, his narrative of the conqueror's campaigns omits no detail that throws light on his character and abilities, or that is
necessary to an intelligent comprehension of the salutary influence of his ambitions and achievements upon the world.
MR. KINGLAKE's fourth volume of The Invasion of the Crimea,” just published, makes no advance in the history of the invasion, but calls a halt in order to concentrate attention to the winter troubles which enveloped the allies on the Chersonese heights at the close of the Inkerman campaign. Mr. Kinglake has concentrated his attention upon this terrible winter campaign, and the mismanagement, defectiveness of machinery, and defects generally of the English system of war administration, which made it almost ruinous, with the object of drawing materials from the calamities that were then experienced toward the solution of the problem, “How to make the mixed policy of Great Britain furnish an executive government which at once, on the call to arms, and without needing yet further lessons in the cruel school of adversity, may be equal to the business of war.” The volume offers little that will be attractive to the reader who is chiefly interested in the excitements of war and battle, or the rapid succession of striking or momentous events. By such it will probably be voted dull and uninteresting. But the philanthropist, the student of history, and especially those in civil or military station who are intrusted with and are responsible for the conduct of great wars, will pronounce it invaluable for its vast accumulation of all-important facts for their guidance or warning, and for its suggestive practical criticisms and deductions.
Summerland Sketches; or, Irambles in the Backwoods of Merico and Central America," is the inviting title of a volume of travels throughout the countries designated, and its author's performance fully vindicates all that its propossessing title promises. Mr. Oswald's sketches of the rugged sierras of Southern and Western Mexico, of the scenic charms, health-bringing climate, and strange fauna and vegetable wonders of their alturas, or mountain forests, and of the virgin land that awaits the tourist and traveller, are a revelation of freshness, and of course of novelty. His account of his rambles in Yucatan, and of his explorations in the American Pompeii, though less exhilarating than his descriptions of the mountain forests and sierras of Mexico and Guatemala, is full of interesting matter, recorded in the most unpretending way, relative to the ancient remains of Central America, its climate and topography, and the characteristics of the people who now inhabit it. Mr. Oswald is a close observer, and has the faculty of describing what he saw with such distinctness as to vividly transfer the impressions that he received to the mind of his reader. We are indebted to him for a very agreeable and unpretending volume.

UNDER the title Old Paris : Its Court and Literary Salons,” Lady Jackson has compiled from gleanings from a variety of sources a very entertaining account of the social and literary aspects of France in the seventeenth century, opening with the coronation of Marie de Medicis, wife of Henry IV., in 1610, and closing with the death of the Grand Monarque, Louis XIV., in 1715. The volume is a series of light and desultory sketches of the social life of the court, the nobility, the salons, and the clerical and literary circles of the day; and it is a copious repertory of the sayings, doings, and occupations of nearly all, of both sexes, who in that century were eminent for rank and station, who were conspicuous by their beauty, their valor, their accomplishments, or their virtues, or who were notorious for their intrigues, their licentiousness, and their crimes. With piquant sketches of such as these are interspersed brief glimpses of the manners of the times; of prevalent or newly adopted fashions, costumes, and social usages; of the state of religion and morals; of the progress of literature, refinement, and the arts; and of the growth, improvement, and enlargement of Paris. The volume is richly stocked with memoranda relative to the historical places, public buildings, monuments, and institutions of Paris during the seventeenth century; but its greatest attractiveness lies in its abundant personal gossip and disinterred society scandal of that most brilliant and most impure age.
IN a little volume of rare typographical daintiness Mr. Aldrich has collected a number of lyrics and sonnets” selected from his writings, which he likens, in some tender dedicatory lines, to “silvery thorn and flower, plucked at random in the rosy weather,” and again to “snow-drops and pansies, sprigs of way-side heather, and five-leaved wild rose dead within an hour.” We appeal from the modesty of the self-critic to the prophetic instinct of the poet on the question of the durability of these delicate flowers of verse. We believe the poet's estimate to be the truest, and that he is right when he intimates that if we will take and keep his “flower, and thorn, and blossom,” even though they be withered, and some day hold them for an instant against our bosom, they will make December seem to us like May.
Sure we are that Mr. Aldrich's exquisite apostrophe to Herrick, in the lyric entitled “Hesperides”—a lyric that Herrick himself might have written—and the shower-fragrant verses “Before the Rain” and “After the Rain,” and those to “Tiger-Lilies” and the “Faded Violet,” and the fine sonnets on “Barberries,” “Three Flowers,” and “Sleep,” are not such verses as men “willingly let die.”
Mr. Roe's A Day of Fate" is entitled to slight consideration as a work of art, but nevertheless is very pleasant reading. The interest of the tale consists in the unconscious contrasts which it suggests between our busy, matter of fact, overworked, unsympathetic, and unspiritual city life, and the calm, tolerant, compassionate, loving, and spiritual life of a family of suburban Quakers, and in its charming descriptions of this peaceful household, their rural occupations and surroundings, and their primitive religious principles and worship. An overworked New York editor is made to drop by accident among these kindly and simple people, and the restorative influence which they exert upon his feverish mind and body is very effectively described. The susceptibility to emotional influences engendered by his transition from the hardening atmosphere of his calling to this rural Eden predisposes him to the gentle passion, and Mr. Roe has availed of it to paint an attractive picture of an editor in love, and successful in his wooing.
THE admirers of the writings of the author of The Wide, Wide World will be disposed to give a cordial welcome to her new story, The End of a Coil.” Like all Miss Warner's novels, it is a tale with a distinctly defined religious moral, in this instance illustrating by the career of her sweet and gentle heroine the steadfastness of Christian principle in resisting the seductions of worldliness, and the power of filial love to minister to the contentment of one weak and repining parent, and to save the other from the degradation with which he was threatened by his irresolution and his waywardness. The story is not without its substantial mundane interests, and very neatly blends the emotional and the moral.
Mr. CIIARLEs CARLETON COFFIN excels in the art of “putting things” so as to make them attractive to youth, and at the same time so as to effect a lodgment of solid information in their minds. In dealing with historical subjects he confines himself mainly to those salient occurrences and events which are the mile-stones of history and progress, and interlaces them so as to form a continuous entertaining narrative, clothed in familiar phraseology. Moreover, he has the tact to dwell upon them so pithily and briefly as to impress their important lessons upon the memory without fatiguing the attention of the youthful reader. Several years ago he prepared a volume for youth, entitled The Boys of '76, which was a narrative of the battles of the Revolution, and of the trials and patriotic devotion of our forefathers, diversified with individual instances of youthful heroism and patriotism. This was followed, about a year ago, by another volume, The Story of Liberty, which was designed to give young people an intelligent conception of the struggle that was waged in Europe for centuries against tyranny and in behalf of civil and religious liberty, and in which the course of events was traced through the five hundred years that intervened between the signing of Magna Charta and the settlement of Jamestown. And now, in a companion volume, Old Times in the Colonies,” he fills the gap between the two previous volumes by an outline of the discovery and exploration of America, and of the principal events attending the settlement and formation of the several colonies, including brief sketches of the most eminent discoverers, explorers, and representative men of the colonial period, and spirited accounts of the conflict of nations, civilizations, and religions for the supremacy of the continent, of the natural causes which influenced the course of population and empire, and of the Indian wars and other hardships that disciplined the colonists for self-government. The book is a graphic record of stirring incidents, and is lavishly illustrated.

MR. Brooks's chronicle of The Fairport Nine,” their doings and sayings, is emphatically a boy's book, a little rough betimes, as were the lads who figure in it, but in the main sound and wholesome. It will be a favorite with incipient ball-players, and while instructing them in some of the points of the game, will quietly instill a disrelish for meanness and unfairness, and an admiration for manliness and honor.—In two pretty little volumes of Parables from Nature” Mrs. Alfred Gatty embodies a variety of excellent moral and religious lessons, and also imparts a large amount of interesting information in natural history. The truths which she aims to convey are so pleasingly idealized, and her parables illustrate hidden meanings so aptly and simply, that the young reader will absorb them almost unconsciously; and at the same time his curiosity will be gratified, and his mind stored with useful and entertaining facts concerning familiar birds, beasts, reptiles, insects, and natural phe
nomena. The parables are just long enough to read aloud in the home circle or in school.— Messrs. Roberts Brothers have added to their numerous publications for youth two pleasant volumes respectively by Louisa M. Alcott and Mrs. Ewing. Miss Alcott's book, Jack and Gill," is a tale of New England village life, in which, with her usual skill, she interests her young readers in the sayings and doings, pranks and diversions, schemes and enjoyments, of a number of young folk, the companions of Jack and Gill, and pictures the unfolding of their dispositions and characters under the influences by which they are surrounded.—The scene of Mrs. Ewing's story, We and the World,” is laid in the north of England, and describes the pursuits, diversions, and companionships of a lad in a quiet rural nook till he is seized by the spirit of adventure. After this the world of the hero is enlarged, and, no longer confined to the limits of his secluded home, he engages in travels by land and by water, the incidents of which are told in true boy fashion.—The Gentle Heart” is a collection of talks to children, embodying a number of brief stories illustrative of the beauty of gentleness— gentleness in the life, gentleness in the heart, gentle deeds and words and thoughts—drawn from incidents in the life of the Saviour, and from the lives of others in various ranks and of all ages who have been inspired by their
love for Him to imitate His example. Severalcent channels. Mr. Alden's recipe for making stories of pirates seem stupid and silly to a boy is to fit him out with a boat, and start him and some well-disposed comrades on a cruise that will give them plenty of exercise in the open air, force them to draw upon their own resources, and teach them lessons of prudence and self-reliance, along with a love for honest and manly sports. His story is the log of an expedition of this kind, which will admirably serve as a guide-book and manual for the information of all those lads who may in future incline to follow the vocation of “moral pirates.”

of the stories are noteworthy for their simple pathos, and all of them are provocative of kindly thoughts and gentle deeds.-Mrs. Moulton's annual present of “Bed-Time Stories” may be reckoned among the most welcome events of the holiday season, not only by boys and girls, but by all, of every age, whose hearts are young. Her present volume, New BedTime Stories,” is addressed more largely than its predecessors to the sympathies of those who have passed through their chrysalis state, and have emerged into young manhood and womanhood.—It is manifest from Mr. W. L. Alden's Moral Pirates” that he understands the art of killing two birds with one stone. His little story will at once win the rapt attention of wide-awake and active boys who are boiling over with a fondness for dash and adventure, and also suggest a method to parents by which the evil impressions made upon their boys by pernicious books of piracy and murder may be eradicated, and their superfluous vitality be directed into wholesome and inno

SEVERAL volumes have been laid upon the elitor's table at so late a date as to preclude the possibility of describing them as fully in detail as they deserve; but as they are specially appropriate to the holiday season, the briefest timely mention of them will doubtless be more acceptable to our readers than the most elaborate deferred notice. Conspicuous among these, and meriting the place of honor by reason of the perfection of its typography, the picturesqueness of its descriptions of the varied aspects of the seasons, and their peculiar charms of flower, field, and creature life, and especially for the unrivalled excellence and poetical suggestiveness of its illustrations, is Mr. Gibson's superb volume, Pastoral Days; or, Memories of a New England Year,” than which we can conceive of no richer or more elegant gift book, or one more wholesome and retin. ing.—Worthily occupying the second place of honor for its exquisite typography and graceful designs is a beautiful illustrated volume of T. Buchanan Read's finely imaginative poem, I}rifting.” The illustrations are from designs by Miss L. B. Humphrey, and are thoroughly imbued with the sentiment of the text.—More sober in its garb, and shrining beneath the meat simplicity and serviceable freshness of its Quaker-like attire a number of sacred lyrics of exquisite sweetness and exalted fervor, is a volume of poems entitled Voices of Hope and Gladness,” by the Rev. Ray Palmer, D.D.—Another holiday book of poetry is Tennyson's Dream of Fair Women,” beautifully bound, and exquisitely illustrated by designs from the pencils of Mary Hallock Foote, Alfred Fredericks, F. Hopkinson Smith, T. Moran, G. Perkins, W. H. Gibson, C. S. Reinhart, and other artists. The Laureate's beautiful poem was never presented in a more fitting and attractive dress. —The first volume of The Memorial History of Boston,” to be completed in four volumes, pre

sents in a very attractive form the early and colonial history of Boston. The work does not go so far back as the celebrated history of Kentucky, which began with an imaginary account of the condition of that State during the Age of Chaos, but, with a modesty which does credit to the editor, begins with the creation only, and with the formation of the peninsula which was destined to become the site of the American Athens. Professor Shaler, Professor Allen, Professor Gray, Mr. Charles Francis Adams, Jun., Mr. George Dexter, and others contribute papers to this volume, to which Whittier's historical poem of “The King's Mission” is a noble introduction. When coinpleted, the work will give a comprehensive and most interesting survey of the history of Boston from its founding to the present day.—We can only mention the forth-coming appearance of Dr. Schliemann's new work Ilios,” reserving an extended review for a future time.—Last year Mr. Sidney Lanier introduced the boys of America to a chronicle of the Middle Ages in his admirably edited Boy's Froissart. This year he carries them back to the legendary times of Britain through the medium of an equally admirably edited volume, which he entitles The Boy's King Arthur,” and which is a history of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, from the text of the “simple, valorous, wise, and tender Sir Thomas Malory.”—Another volume takes us from the world of man to that of the children of nature, and under the title of Friends Worth Knowing” gives some charming glimpses of American natural history, in which snails and birds and buffaloes and dogs figure very prominently, without corrupting the taste or exciting the evil propensities of the youthful reader.—Our list of addenda closes with mere mention of the publication of Mr. Henry James, Jun.’s, fine New York society novel, Washington Square,” which first appeared as a serial in this Magazine; and of another historical novel, An Egyptian Princess,” from the fertile pen of the celebrated antiquarian scholar Georg Ebers.
