IMPORTANT NEW BOOKS.

I.

By WILLIAM DEAN HOWELLS.

APRIL HOPES. A Novel. By WILLIAM DEAN HOWELLS. 12mo, Cloth, $1 50.

Mr. Howells never wrote a more bewitching book. It is useless to deny the rarity and worth of the skill that can report so perfectly and with such exquisite humor the manifold emotions of the modern maiden and her lover. Philadelphia Press.

MODERN ITALIAN POETS. Essays and Versions. By WILLIAM DEAN HOWELLS. Author of "April Hopes," &c. With Portraits. 12mo, Half Cloth, Uncut Edges and Gilt Tops, $2 00.

A portfolio of delightsome studies.... No acute and penetrating critic surpasses Mr. Howells in true insight, in polished irony, in effective and yet graceful treatment of his theme, in that light and indescribable touch that fixes your eye on the true heart and soul of the theme. Critic, N. Y.

II.

KINGLAKE'S CRIMEAN WAR. The Invasion of the Crimea: its Origin, and an account of its Progress down to the Death of Lord Raglan. By ALEXANDER WILLIAM KINGLAKE. With Maps and Plans. Five Volumes now ready. 12mo, Cloth, $2 00 per vol.

Vol. V. From the Morrow of Inkerman to the Fall of Canrobert; just published . Vol. VI. From the Rise of Pelissier to the Death of Lord Raglan completing the work nearly ready .

The charm of Mr. Kinglake's style, the wonderful beauty of his pictures, the subtle irony of his reflections, have made him so long a favorite and companion, that it is with unfeigned regret we read the word "farewell" with which these volumes close. Pall Mall Gazette, London.

III.

T. ADOLPHUS TROLLOPE'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY.

WHAT I REMEMBER. By T. ADOLPHUS TROLLOPE. With Portrait. 12mo, Cloth, $1 75.

The most delightful pot pourri that we could desire of the time just anterior to our own.... Mr. Trollope preserves for us delightful, racy stories of his youth and the youth of his century, and gives us glimpses of loved or worshipped faces banished before our time. Hence the success of these written remembrances. Academy, London.

IV.

BY THE AUTHOR OF "SELF HELP."

LIFE AND LABOR; or, Characteristics of Men of Industry, Culture, and Genius. By SAMUEL SMILES, LL.D., Author of "Self Help," &c. 12mo, Cloth, $1 00.

Commends itself to the entire confidence of readers. Dr. Smiles writes nothing that is not fresh, strong, and magnetically bracing. He is one of the most helpful authors of the Victorian era.... This is just the book for young men. N. Y. Journal of Commerce.

V.

WOMEN AND MEN. By THOMAS W. HIGGINSON, Author of "A Larger History of the United States," &c. 16mo, Cloth, $1 00.

VI.

Plain, sensible, sturdy advice. Chicago News.

BIG WAGES, AND HOW TO EARN THEM. By A FOREMAN. 16mo, Cloth, 75 cents.

The views of an intelligent observer upon some of the foremost social topics of the day. The style is simple, the logic cogent, and the tone moderate and sensible. N. Y. Commercial Advertiser.

Characterized by the same astounding reach of historical scholarship as made Mr. Lea's "Sacerdotal Celibacy" the wonder of European scholars.
