WORKS OF
WILLIAM E. H. LECKY.

A History of England in the Eighteenth Century.
Vols. I, II, III, and IV. Small 8vo, cloth, price per vol., $2.25.

“Mr. Lecky never touches a subject without presenting to the eye some hitherto unobserved angle and facet; and we find in this ‘History of the Eighteenth Century’ the old unwearied industry, especially in the by-paths of literature, his delicate subtilty of observation, and the same fine ear for the undertones of life, which are apt to be drowned in the noisy hum of battles, sieges, and dynastic changes. No one, not even Macaulay, has burrowed so industriously in the pamphlets, newspapers, and quite unclassical literature of last century in search of light as to its manners and customs. He has written the best history of the century, has corrected many errors of his predecessors, and his manner of treatment is large, philosophical, and impartial.”—London Spectator.


History of the Rise and Influence of the Spirit of
Rationalism in Europe.
Two vols, y smallavo, cloth, $4.00.

“A man of earnest conviction, Mr. Lecky is entirely free from bigotry; as an historian he is almost faultless, and as a critic he is without a peer. His book is animated by a vital idea which gave it birth, and which quickens every paragraph to the end; but the idea is too large and luminous to have the character of a dogma. The work will no doubt be extensively read. The wealth of its contents, and the singular grace of its style, always flowing, often picturesque, sometimes burning with suppressed eloquence, will insure a multitude of admirers. We hope they will.”—The Nation.


History of European Morals, from Augustus to Char-
lemagne.
Third edition, revised. Two vols., 12mo, cloth, $3.00.

“So vast is the field Mr. Lecky introduces us to, so varied and extensive the information he has collected in it, fetching it from far beyond the limits of his professed subject, that it is impossible in any moderate space to do more than indicate the line he follows…. The work is a valuable contribution to our higher literature, as well as an admirable guide for those who may care to go in person to the distant fountains from which Mr. Lecky has drawn so freely.”—London Times.


The Leaders of Public Opinion in Ireland: Swift,
Flood, Grattan, O’Connell.
12mo, cloth, $1.75.

“A writer of Lecky’s mind, with his rich imagination, his fine ability to appreciate imagination in others, and his disposition to be himself an orator upon the written page, could hardly have found a period in British history more harmonious with his literary style than that which witnessed the rise, the ripening, and the fall of the four men whose impress upon the development of the national spirit of Ireland was not limited by the local questions whose discussion constituted their fame.”—New York Evening Post.

New York: D. APPLETON & CO., 1, 3, & 5 Bond Street
