Cloth, $4. 5a " The merit of this work is intrinsic. It rests on the broad intdligence and true philosophy of the method employed, and the^ coherency and accu- racy of the results reached. The scope m. the woric is marvelous. Never was there more crowded into three small volumes. But the saving of space IS not by the sacrifice of substance or of style. The broadest view of the facts and forces embraced by the subject is exhibited with a clearness <A arrangement and a definiteness of application that render it perceplible to the simplest apprehension."— AVw York Mail and Express, " A useful and thorough piece of work. One of the best treatises which the general reader can ^ait*' —London Daily ChronicU. " Conceived in a popular spirit, yet with strict regard to the modern standards.

Green gives the picture of England at difierent times; Aubrey goes deeper, showing the causes which led to the changes."— JVT/w yorM IVorU,

"These volumes are a surprise and in their way amarveL . . . They constitute an almost encydopaMUa of &ig]ish history, condensing in a mar- velous manner the facts and principles devdoped in the history of the English naticm. . . .
