⁂ In announcing a new impression of the WORKS OF BAYARD TAYLOR in a popular and cheaper form, the publishers do not think it needful to quote the opinions of the critics as to their interest and literary character. They would merely refer to what may be called the "business standing" of these works which is indicated by the fact that though the earliest volume, "Views Afoot," was published twenty-four years ago, and most of the others are now fifteen years old, they are still called for, both separately and in sets, as among the indispensables in American libraries and on the bookshelves of the family. Very few books, either of Travel or Fiction, thus retain their place and continue so long in demand, amidst all the active competition of modern book-publishing, and the inference is not unreasonable that these volumes of Adventure in almost every corner of the earth, possess some lasting interest and vitality which makes them worthy of a permanent place in our literature. Mr. Taylor's Novels were welcomed even more largely than the Travels, and we need only quote the competent and impartial estimate of the best English critics in regard to them, viz.:
"We have now to welcome 'Hannah Thurston,' as an excellent addition to the list of such American tales as Hawthorne's, Longfellow's, and Mrs. Stowe's."—London Review.
"If Bayard Taylor has not placed himself, as we are half inclined to suspect, in the front rank of novelists, he has produced a very remarkable book a really original story admirably told, crowded with life-like characters, full of delicate and subtle sympathies, with ideas the most opposite to his own, and lighted up throughout with that playful humor which suggests always wisdom rather than mere fun."—London Spectator.
"'The Story of Kennett' is delightful and refreshing reading, and a great rest after the crowded artistic effects and the conventional interests of even the better kinds of English novels."—London Spectator.

"In diction, method, and spirit, the volume is attractive and distinctive to are degree."—Boston Traveller.
