HISTORY" OF Ej^glaid,

BEING A roiiTioy or

The Cabinet History of the British Islands,


HISTORY of ENGLAND. By Sir James Mackintosh, Vol. I.

"Our anticipations of this volume were certainly very highly mis eel, and unlike such anticipations in general, they have not been disappointed. A philosophical spirit, a nervous style, and a full knowledge of the subject, acquired, by •considerable research into the works of preceding chroniclers and historians, eminently distinguish this popular abridgment, and cannot fail to recommend it to universal approbation. In continuing his work as he has begun, Sir James Mackintosh will confer a great benefit on his conntrw''— LottfL Lit. Gazette.

HISTORY of SCOTLAND. By Sir Walter Scott, 2 vols. HISTORY of IRELAND. By Thomas Moore, 1 vol.

II. HISTORY of SCOTLAND. By Sir Walter Scott, Bart, in 2 vols. 12mo.

The History of Scotland, by Sir Walter Scott, we do not hesitate to declare, will be, if possible, more extensively read, than the most popular work of fiction, by the same prolific authoi\and for this obvious reason: jt combines much of the brilliant colouring of the Ivanhoe pictures of bj-gone manners, and all the graceful facility of style and picturesqueness of de scription of his other charming romances, with a minute fidelity to the facts of histoiy ,and a searching scrutiny into their authenticity and relative, value, which might put to the blush Mr. Hume and other professed historians. Such is the magic charm of Sir Walter Scott's pen, it has only to touch the simplest incident of every day life, and it starts up invested with all the interest cf a scene of romance; and yet such is his fidelity to the text of nature, that The knights, and eerfs, and cellared fools with whom his inventive genius has peopled so many volumes, are regarded by us as not mere creations of fancy, but as real flesh and blood existences, with all the virtues, feelings and errors of common place humanity."—LzY. Gaz.

VII. SKETCHES of CHINA, with Illustration* from Original Drawings. By W. W. Wood, in 1 vol. 12mo.

"The residence of the author in China, during the years 1826-7-8 and 9 has enabled him to collect much very curious information relative to this singular people, which he has embodied in his work; and will serve to gratify the curiosity of many whose time or dispositions do not allow them to seek, in the voluminous writings of the Jesuits and early travellers, the information contained in the present work. The recent discussion relative to the renewal of the East India Company's Charter, has excited much interest; and among ourselves, the desire to be farther acquainted with the subjects of ' the Celestial Empire'' hasbeen considerably augmented."

"Iti9 a work of supererogation for us to eulogize Dr. Hennen's Military Surgery; there can be no second opinion on its merits. It is indispensable to-the military and naval surgeon."— London Medical and Surgical Journal.

Dr. Maeculloch is a great philosopher and logician. His views are calculated to do much good. We have then:lore taken great pains to concentrate and diffuse them ■w idely through the profession. Nothing but a strong conviction that the work before us contains a multitude of vnluable gi ms, could have induced us to bestow so much labour on the review.
