We are now publishing a beautiful Household Edition of the Waverley Novels, (the cheapest because the best,) to be completed in

FORTY-EIGHT VOLUMES of portable size in 16mo form. The paper is of fine quality ; the stereotype plates are not old ones repaired, the type having been cast expressly for this work. The Novels are illustrated with capital steel plates, newly engraved in the best manner, after drawings and paintings by the most eminent artists, among whom are Birket, Foster, Darley, Landseer, Harvey, and Faed. This Edition contains all the latest notes and corrections of the author, a Glossary and Index, and some curious additions, especially in “Guy Mannering” and the “Bride of Lammermoor”; being the fullest edition of the Novels ever published. The notes are at the foot of the page, a great convenience to the reader, but one that is generally overlooked by the publishers of other editions of Scott's Novels.

For opinions of the Press as to the superiority of TICKNOR & FIELDS’s “Illustrated Household Waverleyover all others, see elaborate notices in the New York Tribune, Publishers' Circular, Home Journal, Evening Post, Merchants’ Magazine, Mirror, Albion, Herald, Knickerbocker, Putnam's Monthly, Harper's Magazine, Boston Courier, Traveller, Journal, Transcript, Evening Gazette, Christian Examiner, Advertiser, Post, and all the other papers and periodicals published in the country.

It is the intention of the Publishers to issue two volumes, elegantly bound in cloth, stamped with original and appropriate designs, every month, until the whole is complete. The price is 75 cents per volume.

Any person sending his name, with the money, will be supplied regularly as the volumes are published, free of postage.

Boston, January, 1858.

BULWER, THACKERAY, CHARLES READE, MRS. GASKELL,

AND WILKIE COLLINS.

HARPER'S MAGAZINE.

COMMENCEMENT OF A NEW VOLUME. MR. THACKERAY'S NEW NOVEL, The Virginians, with many humorous Illustrations by the Author, was commenced in the DECEMBER Number of HARPER'S MAGAZINE. It is printed from early sheets, received from the Author in advance of publication in England ; for which the Publishers pay Mr. Thackeray the sum of Two Thousand Dollars.

MR. CHARLES READE'S NEW STORY, entitled Jack of all Trades, A Matter-ofFact Romance, written exclusively for HARPER'S MAGAZINE, was also commenced in the DECEMBER Number.

MRS. GASKELL'S BEAUTIFUL STORY, entitled The Doom of the Griffiths, will be found in the present Number for JANUARY.

MR. WILKIE COLLINS'S POWERFUL TALE, entitled The Marriage Tragedy, will appear complete in the next Number. The above three stories are written exclusively for HARPER'S MAGAZINE. More than One Hundred and Seventy Thousand Copies are now issued of each Number of HARPER'S NEW MONTHLY MAGAZINE,

This success, to which the history of Periodical Literature affords no parallel, has not been achieved, and is not maintained, without a liberal expenditure of labor and money. The ample remuneration offered by the Publishers enables them to secure the best productions of the most accomplished Authors and Artists of the country, to whom at least Three Thousand Dollars are paid for the Matter and Illustrations of each Number of the Magazine.

HARPER'S WEEKLY.

THE NEW STORY by CHARLES DICKENS, entitled The Lazy Tour of Two Idle Apprentices, was commenced in No. 44 of HARPER'S WEEKLY (October 31st), and will be continued in the successive nunibers till completion.

BULWER'S BRILLIANT ROMANCE, entitled What will he do with it? pronounced to be the masterpiece of this polished, witty, and learned novelist, by special arrangement with the Author, appears in HARPER'S WEEKLY simultaneously with its publication in England.

HARPER'S WEEKLY will appear every SATURDAY MORNING, and will be sold at FIVE CENTS a Copy. Each Number comprises as much matter as an ordinary duodecimo volume.

Neither labor nor expense will be spared to make it the best FAMILY NEWSPAPER in the world, - one whose cheerful and genial character will render it a welcome visitor to every household, while its constant devution to the principles of right and justice shall win the approbation of the wise and the good.
