Notices of Turner's Edition of Tytler.
“The edition before us is superior to its predecessors, since it is not only more
accurate, but it contains nearly double the quantity of matter."-Athencum.

“We prefer the additions to the original. Mr. Turner has bestowed more
thought and care on his work than professional avocations allowed Tytler to
afford. We are bound to state that we could not easily point out a work contain-
ing so much historical information in the same space as the present volume." -
Dr. Cook Taylor, in the League.

"A volumo which we can confidently recommend, whether as a class-book for
youth, or as a work of general reference for persons of more advanced years."-
Edinburgh Witness.

CIVIL, MILITARY, and ECCLESIASTICAL, from the Landing of Julius Cæsar

till the Year 1846. 13 Vols., elegantly bound in cloth, £1, 68. The want of a good complete History of England, from the earliest times to the present day, has been long acknowledged as a great deficiency in our national literature. Such a desideratum in our literature is supplied by the Cabinet History of England, which will be found complete in its details, in regard to furnishing the reader with a lucid and interesting account of the principal events in English history, from the invasion of the Romans, B.C. 55, to the repeal of the Corn Laws, in 1846. As far as possible, an impartial view has been taken of the various social, political, and religious questions, respecting which different opi. nions prevail; and great care has been taken to render the narrative interesting to the general reader, with a strict regard to historical accuracy.
