Dr. MORITZ BUSCH DURING TWENTY-FIVE YEARS' OFFICIAL AND PRIVATE INTER
COURSE WITH THE GREAT CHANCELLOR
Cloth 8vo. Two Volumes, with Portraits. Price, $10
“Whether the great German Chancellor left memoirs is uncertain; he began them, but whether he completed them is unknown; even if such documents exist in manuscript, it is extremely doubtful whether they will see the light, at least for some years to come. Meanwhile we have a substitute for them in the two capacious volumes published by The Macmillan Company. The Prince, indeed, may be said to have been a collaborateur with Dr. Busch in the preparation of the earliest manuscript for the press.'
New York Sun. “ The new work contains revelations of an interesting and often startling character.
The reader will find that the relations of the old Chancellor to the old Emperor are held before him in an entirely new light.” — Chicago Inter-Ocean.
“By far the most important contribution yet made to Bismarck's life during this period, and to his character, both as a man, and as a statesman, and as a diplomat. It is also invaluable as historical material.” Boston Herald.
The Story of Gladstone's Life
Four Georges,” etc.
“Mr. McCarthy may be congratulated upon the splendid memorial he has raised to his revered hero and leader”. Philadelphia Public Ledger.
“ The best of the popular biographies of the great politician.” — The Dial. “A masterly résumé of the character and public career of the great English commoner.”
Boston Transcript. “The book is a storehouse of anecdote and reminiscence, and will be essential to all students of English politics during the nineteenth century - Springfield Republican.
“Mr. McCarthy tells the story of both the private and public life of the Grand Old Man' with a fulness, a vividness of picturing, a breadth and accuracy, that makes this work one of great value and transcendent interest." New Orleans Times Democrat.
“ There is not space to dwell upon the charming style, the sense of dramatic progression, and the admirable good taste which is shown throughout the book.
Suffice it to say, that this biography may well stand as an authoritative one. Mr. McCarthy seems to tell us about Gladstone, all that peop:e at large should be permitted to know."
- Boston Budget. “Undoubtedly the biography of greatest popular interest in both England and America.”

“The following collection of Mrs. Browning's letters has been prepared in the conviction that lovers of English literature will be glad to make a closer and more intimate acquaintance with one – or, it may truthfully be said, with two of the most interesting literary characters of the Victorian age. It is a selection from a large mass of letters, written at all periods in Mrs Browning's life, which Mr. Browning, after his wife's death, reclaimed from the friends to whom they had been written, or from their representatives The letters passed into the possession of his son, Mr. R.

“ The biography is easily the biography not only of the year, but of the decade, and the story of the development of Tennyson's intellect and of his growth -- whatever may be the varying opinions of his exact rank among the greatest poets - into one of the few masters of English verse, will be found full of thrilling interest not only by the critic and student of literature, but by the average reader.".
– The New York Times. “ Two salient points strike the reader of this memoir. One is that it is uniformly fascinating, so rich in anecdote and marginalia as to hold the attention with the power of a novel. In the next place, it has been put together with consummate tact, if not with academic art. ...
It is authoritative if ever a memoir was But, we repeat, it has suffered no harm from having been composed out of family love and devotion. It is fiultless in its dignity.” — The Vew York Tribune.
