McCOAN'S EGYPT. Egypt As It Is. By J. C. McCoan. With a Map, taken from the most recent survey. 8vo. $3.75.

"Very competent, honest and impartial, and does not praise merely for the sake of praising.... A reader will find in it all about Egypt that he can reasonably wish to know." London Saturday Review .



WALLACE'S RUSSIA. With two colored Maps. 8vo. $4.00.

"One of the stoutest and most honest pieces of work produced in our time, and the man who has produced it ... even if he never does anything more, will not have lived in vain." Fortnightly Review .

"Excellent and interesting ... worthy of the highest praise ... not a piece of clever book making, but the result of a large amount of serious study and thorough research.... We commend his book as a very valuable account of a very interesting people." Nation .

... "The book is excellent from first to last, whether we regard its livelier or its more serious portions." London Athenæum .

"It is very seldom that so readable a book as Mr. Wallace's Russia contains so much solid information." London Academy .

"The solid and most valuable chapters ... outfit to be read and re read by all who wish to become really and thoroughly acquainted with Russian institutions. It is impossible to praise them too highly." London Times .

BAKER'S TURKEY. With two colored Maps. 8vo. $4.00.

"His book is indispensable to a just and impartial decision on the character of the conflict now pending between the two European powers. It should be read and even studied in connection with the statements in the daily prints." N. Y. Tribune .

"Cannot but be regarded as a very useful addition to the literature of the 'Eastern Question.' ... He is enough of a politician and farmer to take a keen interest in the social and administrative economy of the country, and to be able to offer, as he does in this book, a very clear and careful account of both." N. Y. Nation .

"His work, like Mr. Wallace's, is in many parts a revelation, as it has had no predecessor, which was so founded upon personal observation, and at the same time so full of that sort of detailed information about the habits, the customs, the character and the life of the people who form its subject, which constitutes the best possible explanation of history and of current events.... Invaluable to the student, profound or superficial, of Turkish affairs." N. Y. Evening Post .

"Of all that he speaks of from personal knowledge, he is a trustworthy witness calm, shrewd, impartial. Of all that he speaks of from historical and other printed documents, he is a trustworthy compiler intelligent, concise and rapid." London Saturday Review .

CREASY'S HISTORY OF THE OTTOMAN TURKS: From the Beginning of their Empire to the Present Time. By Sir Edward R. Creasy, M.A., author of "The Fifteen Decisive Battles of the World." "Rise and Progress of the English Constitution," etc. Large 12mo. $2.50.

GAUTIER'S RUSSIA. 12mo. Reduced to $1.75.

"The book is a charming one, and nothing approaching it in merit has born written on the outward face of things in Russia.... He sees pictures where most people find mere dead surfaces, and where common eyes find the tint of a picture, he constructs a complete work of art." Nation .

GAUTIER'S CONSTANTINOPLE. 12mo. Reduced to $1.75.

"It is never too late in the day to reproduce the sparkling description and acute reflections of so brilliant a master of style as the present author." N. Y. Tribune .
