Father and son understood one another better than any other person. It is delightful to contemplate these two great men in their intercourse with each other.'—Daily A'ah.

'In the life of Robert Stephenson, Mr. Smiles enters upon new ground, sad has produced a biography little interior in interest to his former narrative of the career of George Stephenson.'—London Rsciern.

LIVES OF BRITISH ENGINEERS;

FROM. THE EARLIEST PERIOD DOWB" TO THE DEATH OF TELFORD.

WJh am Account of their Principal Works, and a History of Inland Communication

in Britain.

Sir Stafford Northcote.—' I have just been reading a work of great interest, which I recommend to your notice—I mean Smiles' "Lives of the Engineers." Mo more interesting books have been published of late years than those by Mr. Smiles. What we want in this country is earnestness—and nothing can be better adapted for this purpose than the examples held out to us of successful and persevering energy, such as are to be seen in the great lives which Mr. Smiles has given us.'

Mining Journal.—* A book which has at once the conciseness necessary to render it valuable to the professional man, and the interesting character which makes it acceptable to the general reader.*

The Times.—1 A chapter of English history which no one could have written so well as Mr. Smiles. It is a history of the growth of the inland communication of Great Britain by means of its roads, bridges, canals, and railways; and a survey of the lighthouses, breakwaters, docks, and harbours constructed tor the protection and accommodation of our commerce with the world.'

Spectator.—' A very delightful account of some of the great captains of industry. The book is full of interest and instruction.'

London Return.—* Mr. Smiles may fairly claim the merit of having produced one of the most interesting and instructive works that have been published during the present year.'

ANNALS OF THE WARS OF THE Xyiiith CENTURY—1700-1799 By Lieut.-Gen. the Hon. SIR EDWARD CUST, D.C.L.

A NNALS

li CENTUBY

Also, by the same Author,

OF THE WARS OF

—1800-15. 4 vols., post 8vo., 5s. each.

THE Xixth

'I am perfectly sure that there does not exist in any language, ancient or modern, such wonderful exploits of individual skill and daring combined, the result of which has been success and glory, accompanied by the most disproportionate sacrifice of human life as recorded in the Naval enterprises of the Great War.'—Author's Preface.

'By reading you will be distinguished; without it your abilities will be of little use.'—General Sir Charles Napier's 'Advice to a Young Officer.'

'This work is a compilation from various sources, of things proper to be known by all who have the honour to wear their Sovereign's uniform. The author does not presume to call himself an historian, but he thinks he may, without presumption, write for brother-officers what he thinks brother-officers require—a history of wars, irrespective of their causes and consequences. In his own career he would have been glad to have met with a book of the kind, and he hopes therefore that the rising generation will accept it as a legacy of an old soldier, whose destiny it has not been to do all that he would have desired to do in his gallant profession.

'The volumes have been so managed that they may not be too much for the pocket, or the sabretash, or to carry under the belt; in order that they may be more particularly suited to the soldier, who is incessantly locomotive, without much facility of carrying about with him books to read. Writing also for officers of the navy and army, who have few opportunities for deep study in the duties of their profession, the "Annals" aro made (so to call it) an idler's book, by being divided into paragraphs with distinct headings, that they may be taken up like a newspaper, and laid down again as duty or caprice may require. They are also largely interspersed with anecdotes to give them animation, and with biography to give them interest.

'This work has not been compiled for the use of youths about to enter the service of arms; nor for adult men, who in the full zeal and vigour of manhood aro carrying out the real objects of their profession on active service, with their eyes and ears open; hut it is addressed to that large class, both of the navy and army, whose career has commenced, but whose profession has to be learned; and no man should be permitted to ascend the ladder of promotion very high, without affording some test that he has really learned something of his profession in his regimental life, and has read enough to know at least as much as these "Annals " will supply.'—Author's Pre/ace.

'Invaluable to the soldier who desires to know the history of his profession.'—Times.

* A store of profitable reading to the soldier or sailor.'—Saturday Review.

'A military text-book.'—Athenaum.

'A lucid summary of all the most important operations, naval as well as military. —Army and Navy Gazette.

A work as indispensable to a young officer as his sword, for he may be assured that a well-improved judgment is even more useful to the profession of arms than a sharp sabre.
