Through the Countries of the Great Namaquas, Boschmans,

and Hill Damaras,
Under the auspices of the British Government, and the Royal

Geographical Society. BY SIR J. E. ALEXANDER, K. L. S., &c. In 2 vols. post 8vo., with Map and numerous Illustrations. "In this narrative we find Sir James Alexander, as hitherto, lively and entertaining. Struggling through some 4000 miles of a wild and savage country, he has greatly enlarged the bounds of our geographical knowledge, and done much towards the accumulation of natural history; but the chief interest of the work lies in its personal adventures and vicissitudes; the gallant Captain having encountered all the dangers of lion, elephant, rhinoceros, gnu, ostrich, and baboon combat.”Literary Gazette.

DUTY AND INCLINATION.

A NOVEL

EDITED BY MISS L. E. LANDON.

In 3 vols.

From the Preface. "Such is the material wrought up in the following pages; such is the course here traced of 'Duty and Inclination. It cannot fail to excite the sympathies of the young, while it must equally satisfy the judgment of the old. Among the characters, I shall only permit myself to draw attention to those of the heroines, forming a singularly sweet and original picture: the tender calm at the close is what we might fancy a twilight would be by Claude Lorraine. May I conclude with Wordsworth's noble lines?

‘Dreams, books, are each a world, and books we know
Are a substantial word, both pure and good;
Round these, with tendrils strong as flesh and blood,
Our pastime and our happiness will grow.?"
