REFORM BILL, 1867. By T. E. KEBBEL, M.A., Barrister-at-Law, Author of “Essays upon History and Politics.” In one Volume. 8vo. Neatly bound in cloth.

CONTENTS. —Lord Castlereagh, Mr. Canning, Lord Palmerston, Duke of Wellington, Lord Aberdeen, Sir Robert Peel, Lord Grey, Lord Russell, Lord Derby, Mr. Gladstone, Mr. Disraeli.

“The sketches are, though professedly slight, useful, thoughtful, and interesting—more especially those

which treat rather of the Statesmen representing our foreign policy between 1815 and the death of Lord Palmerston....... It is a pleasant, and in its earlier part, an instructive book. Mr. Kebbel writes well. He has studied the subject on which he writes.”—Spectator.

It consists of ten clever and discriminating political sketches, all of which are full of interest and exceedingly readable. Mr. Kebbel as evidently possesses a well balanced and critical mind as he does a capacity for putting his facts and thoughts into good English. The book will be welcomed and read, and deserves to be so.”—Church News. REMINISCENCES OF CHELTENHAM

COLLEGE. By an OLD CHELTONIAN. Crown 8vo. Neat Cloth. 35. 6d.

“We have only further to say that we have derived much pleasure from the perusal of this book, and we cordially recommend all who are interested in the welfare of Cheltenham College to make themselves equally familiar with its contents.”—Cheltenham Journal.

“Reminiscences of Cheltenham is very much of the same character as Mr. Hughes celebrated book, and will be read with hardly less eagerness by Cheltonians, than was the former by the old boys of Rugby."-Exeter and Plymouth Gazetie.
