OR, NOTES OF TRAVEL IN 1861.
EDITED BY FRANCIS GALTON. With Ten Maps, illustrating the Routes. 8vo. cloth, 14s. “ Genuine Travels, in the widest sense of the word, replete with entertainment and information-all characteristic of the highest order of travelled minds-of observers who neither bore you with egotistical descriptions of their own sentiments, nor with minute details of trifling matters, but can discern what is valuable in the new objects which come across them, and can bring it before you in telling language.”—John Bull. ACROSS THE CARPATHIANS IN 1858-60.
With a Map. Crown 8vo. cloth, 78. 6d. Not only a first-rate guide, but a most amusing and instructive account of the varied $clavonian population which occupy either sides of the Carpathians ; it abounds in picturesque legends; no singularity of manners, customs, or costume, escapes the accomplished author, who has here produced one of the most pleasing books of modern travel that we have for some time met with."-Westminster Review.
GROUP OF ISLANDS.
With Map and Illustrations. 8vo. cloth, 14s. “ It contains a mass of curious information.
Dr. Seemann's book may be warmly commended to public perusal. It treats of a curious people, of whom, although presenting some faint lineaments of civilisation, very little is known; while the facts collected as they are from personal investigation, made under circumstances of peculiar opportunity, are as interesting as they are informatory.”— Observer.
LECTURES DELIVERED IN AUSTRALIA. By JOHN WOOLLEY, D.C.L. Principal of the University of Sydney,
late Fellow of University College, Oxford.
Crown 8vo. cloth, 8s. 6d. “ They one and all bear the stamp of eloquence which springs from the union of a deep reverential love of the beautiful and the true, with the hearty living sympathy of practical philanthropy, and seem to express the vigour and exhilaration inspired by a fresh start in a new sphere, which, how great soever may be its dangers and difficulties, is unfettered by some of the intellectual bonds which press most heavily upon ourselves."-Westminster Review. A PAINTER'S CAMP IN THE HIGHLANDS
AND THOUGHTS ABOUT ART. By P. G. HAMERTON. 2 vols. Crown 8vo. 218. “ A book of substantial value. Mr. Hamilton deserves, in this reviewer's opinion, the praise of having written the most sensible book on landscape-painting that has yet proceeded from a practical painter, and has given to lovers and critics of art, as well as artists, the benefit of a very uncommon experience, full of instruction to both."-Reader.

THE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE.
Edited by WILLIAM GEORGE CLARK, M.A. Fellow and Tutor
of Trinity College, and Public Orator in the University of Cam-
intervals of Four Months.
In presenting the First Volume of this Edition of Shakespeare's Works, the Publishers desire to call attention to certain features which distinguish it from previous Editions ;
1. A Text based on a thorough collation of the four Folios, and of all the Quarto Editions of the separate Plays, and of subsequent Editions and Commentaries.
2. All the results of this collation is given in notes at the foot of the page, and to these are added Conjectural Emendations collected and suggested by the Editors and furnished to them by their Correspondents. The reader will thus have in a compact form a complete view of the critical materials out of which the Text of Shakespeare is formed.
3. In the cases where a Quarto Edition exists, differing from the received text to such a degree that the variations cannot be shown in notes, the text of the Quarto will be printed literatim in a smaller type after the received'text.
4. The lines of each Scene are numbered separately.
5. At the end of each Play are added a few Critical Notes upon such passages as require discussion.
6. The Poems, edited on a similar plan, will follow the Dramatic Works.
The work is handsomely printed in demy 8vo. at the Cambridge University Press, and it is the aim of the Publishers to make this Edition distinguished for its typographical beauty.
Also, in preparation, uniform with the above,
A GLOSSARIAL INDEX
PLAYS AND POEMS OF SHAKESPEARE.
By W. ALDIS WRIGHT, M.A. Trinity College, Cambridge.
This Volume, which, it is hoped, will to a great extent serve as a Commentary to Shakespeare, is adapted specially to the CAMBRIDGE EDITION, but may be used for any other.
It will comprise explanations of the Archaic Words and usages of Words, as well as of obscure allusions and constructions.
It is hoped that this Volume will be ready for publication with the last Volume of the Works.
