NEW NOVELS AT THE LIBRARIES.

SQUIRE SILCHESTER'S WHIM. By Mortimer Collins, Author of

“Marquis and Merchant,” “The Princess Clarice," &c. Crown 8vo. 3 vols.

“We think it the best (story) Mr. Collins has yet written."-Pall Mall Gazette. SEETA. By Colonel Meadows Taylor, Author of “Tara,” “Ralph Darnell,” &c.

Crown 8vo. 3 vols.

“The story is well told, native life is admirably described, and the petty intrigues of native rulers, and their hatred of the English, mingled with fear lest the latter should eventually prove the victors, are cleverly depicted.-Athenæum.

“We cannot speak too highly of Colonel Meadows Taylor's book .... We would recommend all novel readers to purchase it at the earliest opportunity."- Fohn Bull.

“Thoroughly interesting and enjoyable reading."-Examiner. JOHANNES OLAF. By E. DE Wille. Translated by F. E. BUNNETT.

Crown 8vo. 3 vols.

“The book gives evidence of considerable capacity in every branch of a novelist's faculty, The art of description is fully exhibited ; perception of character and capacity for delineating it are obvious; while there is great breadth and comprehensiveness in the plan of the story.”

Morning Post. OFF THE SKELLIGS. By JEAN INGELow. (Her First Romance.)

Crown 8vo. In 4 vols.
"Clever and sparkling ...... The descriptive passages are bright with colour."-Standard.

• We read each succeeding volume with increasing interest, going almost to the point of wishing there was a fifth."- Athenæum.

“The novel as a whole is a reinarkable one, because it is uncompromisingly true to life."Daily News. HONOR BLAKE: The Story Of A PLAIN WOMAN. By Mrs. KEATINGE,

Author of " English Homes in India,” &c. 2 vols. Crown 8vo.
“One of the best novels we have met with for some time."- Morning Post,

Meg,” &c. &c. Crown 8vo. 3 vols.

"If our readers wish to peruse, for the sake of pure entertainment, a fascinating story which scarcely flags in interest from the first page to the last, we advise them to submit themselves to the romantic pages of · The Doctor's Dilemma. It is all story; every page contribates something

to the result."-British Quarterly Review. THE PRINCESS CLARICE. A STORY OF 1871. By MORTIMER COLLINS.

2 vols. Crown 8vo.

"Mr. Collins has produced a readable book, amusingly characteristic. There is good description of Devonshire scenery; and lastly there is Clarice, a most successful heroine, who must speak to the reader for herself."--Athenæum.

“Very readable and amusing, We would especially give an honourable mention to Mr. Collins's vers de societe,' the writing of which has alniost become a lost art."-Pall Mall Gazette.

“ A bright, fresh, and original book, with which we recommend all genuine novel readers to become acquainted at the earliest opportunity."-Standard.
