Two vols. of the English edition reprinted entire in 1 vol., 8vo. $2 50. “The History of Rome will remain, to the latest ace of he world, the most atiractive, the most aseful, and the most elevating subject of human contemplation. It must ever form the basis of a liberal and enlightened education, and present the nost important subject to the contemplation of the statesman. It is remarkable, that until the appearance of Dr Arnold's volumes, no history, (except Niebuhr's, whose style is often obscure) of this wonderful people existed, commensurate either to their dignity, their importance, or their intimate connection with modern institutions. In the preparation and composition of the history, Dr. Arnold expended many long years, and beni to it the whole force of his great energies. It is a work to which the whole culture of the man, from boyhood, contributed-most carefully and deeply meditated, pursued with all the ardor of a labor of love, and relinquished only with life. 0: the conscientious accuracy, industry, and power of mind, which the work evinces—its clearness, dignity, and vigor of composition--it would be needless to speak. It is eminently calculated to delight and instruct both the student and the miscellaneous reader."- Boston Courier,

HISTORY OF ENGLAND,

FROM

THE PEACE OF UTRECHT TO THE PEACE OF PARIS

BY LORD MAHON

EDITED BY
HENRY REED, LL.D.,
Prof of English Literature in the University of Penrsyloamua

Two handsome 8vo. volumes. Price $5.

Mr. Macaulay's Opinion. “Lord Mahon nas andoubtedly some of the most valuable qualities of a historier great diligence in examining authorities, great judgment in weighing testimony, and great impartiality in estimating characters."

Quarterly Review. “Lord Mahon has shown throughout, excellent skill in combining, as wel, as con trasting, the various elements of interest which his materials sfforded; he has continued to draw his historical portraits with the same firm and easy hand; and no one can lay down the book without feeling that he has been under the guidance of a singularly clear, high-principled, and humane mind; one uniting a very searching shrewdness with : pure and unaffected charity. He has shown equal courage, judgment, and taste, in irailing himself of minute details, so as to give his narrative the picturesqueness of : memoir, without sacrificing one jot of the real dignity of history His History i well calculated to tem per the political judgment. It is one great lesson of modesty, ter bearance, and charity."

Edinburgh Revier. “It was with no small satisfaction that we saw a history of this period annonnood from the pen of Lord Mahon, nor have we been disappointed in our expectations. Hie parrative is minute and circumstantial, without being tedious.. His History of the Ro bellion in particular is clear, distinct, and entertaining. In his judgment of persons he is on the whole fair, candid, and discriminating."

English Reviero. “Lord Mahon's work will snpply a desideratum which has long been fell--a really good history of the last 150 years. It is written with an ease of style, a command of the object, and a comprehensiveness of view, which evince the possession of high qualifications for the great task which the noble author has proposed to himself. Lord Mahon wails himself extensively of the correspondence and private diaries of the times, which gives gousual interest and life to the narrative... The authorities quoted for Bpanish or French details are always the original ; and we can hardly remember a refor enre of his Lordship's on any subject which is not to the best testimony known as accesible."

Sismondi-Histoire des Français. "Bar le Prince Charles Edouard, en 1745-nous renvoyons uniquement à l'admirable Asit de cette expédition dans l'Histoire de Lord Mahon. Toutes les relations y son wwpartes et jugées avec une saine critique, et le récit presente le vif interét d'un roman.'

Professor Smyth-- University of Cambridge. "! may recommend to others, what I have just bad so much pleasure in reading my well, the History lately published by Lord Mahon. All that need now be known of the me from the Peace of Utrecht to that of Aix-la-Chapelle, wid be there found."
