TRAVELS ON HORSEBACK IN MANTCHTJ TARTARY.
Being a Summer's Hide beyond the Great Wall of China. By GEOKGE tLElIIXG. Military Train. Koyal 8vo. With Map and 50 Illustrations. 'Mr. Fleming's narrative is a most charming one. He has an untrodden region to tell of, and be photographs It and Its people and their ways. Llle-like descriptions are interspersed with personal anecdote*, local legends, and stories of adventure, some of them revealing no common artistic power.—Spectator.
'Mr. Fleming's work Is a most agreeable and valuable addition to our stock of standard books of travel and adventure. The work Is unquestionably one of the freshest, the most amusing, and the most curious or that Chinese series, which opportunity and enterprise are now giving to the world.'—Dublin Univ. Mag.

A WINTER IN UPPER AND LOWER EGYPT. By
G. A. HOSKINS, Esq., F.K.G.S., &c. 8vo., with Illustrations. 15s.
f As a contribution to geography Mr. Hoskins's work is a most excellent one. In bis archaeological researches he is as entertaining a guide as Belzonl himself, and the ancient mythology of the country U treated by hfm with a breadth and scope of intellect worthy of a Bunsen; whilst his description of the journey up the Nile is as charming as Moore's account of the voyage of the Epicurean upon the same historic stream.'—Obtervcr.
'To travellers recommended to explore the Nile in search of health this volume will be invaluable. It abounds with excellent practical advice and instruction—an advantage which renders it superior to all other Egyptian works of travel we have met with.'—Sun.
LORD WILLIAM LENNOX'S FIFTY YEARS' BIOGRA
PHICAL REMINISCENCES. 2 vols. 8vo. 28*.
* To the majority of readers the most Interesting part of these two volumes of pleasant, amusing, and goodnatured gossip, will be that which refers to Lord William Lennox's life as attache and aide-de-camp to the Duke of Wellington. Few men have ever had such opportunities of seeing the Great I Mike under every sort of circumstance as Lord William, and the picture he gives Is a very pleaaantone.'—Sat. Review.
THE WANDERER IN WESTERN FRANCE. By G. T.
LOWTH, Esq. Illustrated by the Hon. Eliot Yorke, M.P. 8vo. 15*.
* Mr. Lowth reminds us agreeably of Washington Irving.'—AOieneeum.
'If Mr. Lowth'» con vernation is only half as good as his book, he must be a very charming acquaintance. The art of gossiping In his style, never wearying the listener, yet perpetually conveying to him valuable information, Is a very rare one, and he possesses it In perfection. No one will quit his volume without feeling that lie understands Brittany and La Vendee.'—Spectator.
DR. MOUAT'S ADVENTURES AND RESEARCHES
AMONG THE ANDAMAN ISLANDERS. 8vo., with Map and Illustrations. 16s. 'Dr. Mount's book, whilst forming a most important and valuable contribution to ethnology, will I* read wilh interest by the general reader.'—Mhtntrum.

GOOD SOCIETY. By MRS. GREY. Author of ' The Gam
bier's Wife/ &c 3 vols. '"Good Society/' in all Its various phases, comes in for a complete anatomization at tbe hands of our author.

The dialogue fs lively, and the '• interiors" are painted with a well-accustomed hand: whether the scene is laid iu tbe marquis's mansion, the squire's hall, the country parsonage, the Romish chapel, or Luc lodging-house in Belgmvia. Altogether to oar mind this surpasses any of the former works of the writer.'— L'uiied Service Magazine. 'airs. Grey writes well and with spirit.'—Horning 1'ost.
