" This excellent work — a literaiy munument of intelligent and consci- entious labor—deals wiih every phase and aspect of state and political activity, public and private, in the Fatherland. . . . Teems with entei^ taining anecdotes and introspective a/irrfMr of character."— Ttk' graph, "With Mr. Dawson's two volumes before him, the ordinaiv reader may well dispense with the perusal of previous authorities. ... His work, on the whole, is comprehensive, conscientious, and eminently §Bai."— 'London Chronicle. There is scarcely any phase of German national life unnoticed in his comprehensive survey. . . . Mr. Dawson has endeavored to write from die view point of a sincere yet candid well-wisher, of an unprejudiced observer, who, even when he is unable to approve, speaks his mind in soberness and kindness." —New York Sun, "There is much in German character to admire; much in Germany's life and institutions from which Americans may learn. William Harbutt Dawson has succeeded in making this fact clearer, and his work wUl go far to help Americans and Germans to know each oUier better and to respect each other more. . . .

A HISTORY OF GERMANY, from the Earliest Times to the Present Day, By Bayard Taylor. With an Additional Chapter by Marie Hansen-Taylor. With Portrait and Maps. lamo. Cloth, $1.50.

"There is, perhaps, no work of equal size in any language which gives a better view of the tortuous course of German history. Now diat the story of a race is to be in good earnest a story of a nation as well, it bet^ins, as every one, whether German or foreign, sees, to furmsh unexpected and wonderful lessons. But these can only be understood in the hght of the past Taylor could end his work with the birth of the empire, but the additional narrative merely foreshadows the events of the future. It may be that all the doings of the past ages on German soil are but the introduc- tion of what is to come. That is certainly the thought which grows upon one as he peruses this volume." — New York Tribune,

    • When one considers Uie confused, complicated, and sporadic elements

of German historv, it seems scarcely possible to present a clear, condnuous narrative. Yet wis is what Bayard Taylor did. He omitted no episode of importance, and yet managed to preserve a main line of connection firom century to century throughout the tacm}i^,**— Philadelphia Ledger,

    • Probably the best work of its kind adapted for school purposes that

can be had in English."— Herald, New York: D. APPLETON & CO., 7a Fifth Avenue.
