It is printed on fine paper and clear type, and is all contained in one Imperial Octavo Volume of 1050 pages. The work is beautifully illustrated, and bound in the various styles of muslin, library, sheep and morocco, full gilt.

THE POETICAL WORKS OF JOHN MILTON: A new edition, with Notes and a Life of the Author, by John MITFORD.

“To the poetry of Milton, from my earliest youth down to the commencing autumn of my life, I have ever looked with reverence and love not easily to be surpassed ; for the sentiments adopted and avowed by him on the great and complicated questions of civil liberty and political rights, I have, as becomes my situation and is suitable to the habits of my mind, expressed myself with that temperance of opinion and moderation of language which can alone expect to conciliate attention, or to command respect.” Note from Mr. Mitford.

.” “ The Passionate Pilgrim ;" &c. Complete in 1 vol., 12mo, 442 pp.

A class of poems, which, whilst they are worthy of the immortal poet, are yet little understood, and less known. In this edition will be found Gerrinus' beautiful commentary upon them, which attempts to portray the progress of the poet's mind. We have not space to speak of this charming production, its truthfulness, its clear and powerful analysis, and its searching discrimination. It presents the sonnets in an entirely new light. It elevates them at once to an equal importance with the “plays.”Hunt's Merchant's Magazine.

THE TRUE REMEDY FOR THE WRONGS OF WOMAN ; with a History of an Enterprise having that for its Object.

It is not a woman's rights essay, as one might suspect from the title, but a discourse of education, which Miss Beecher takes, very justly, we think, to be the true remedy for the Wrongs of Woman. Burlington Sentinel.

On a book so suggestive, we might write columns, without doing it any sort of justice. It must be read. The women will greatly wrong themselves, if they don't read it.- Commonwealth.

We recommend its perusal to all, believing that it will serve to give a clearer idea of the wrongs of woman in the present constitution of society, and make her claims respected. — Bangor Mercury.

We cordially recommend the work to general perusal, as it is replete with sound reason and good sense, combined with genuine moral and religious principle ; and is therefore well calculated to promote the important object which it is designed to aid. Observer.
