This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1897 edition. Excerpt: we can see, both utility and cost, or rather pleasure and pain, determine value. The Shorter Poctns of John Milton, edited with notes by Andrew J.

The third and fourth volumes of Gossip of the Centnry are announced for early publication by The Macmillan Company, under the title of Social Hours with Celebrities, by the late Mrs. W. Pitt Byrne. These two volumes are edited by the author's sister, Miss R. H. Busk, and contain sixty-six illustrations whose range from Renan to Zola, and from Louis Philippe to Cartouche, gives some idea of the scope of the text. The chief actors of the century in the fields of literature, politics, religion, music, art and the drama live under the pen of this entertaining woman, and the spice of personal reminiscence is as keen here as it was in the Gossip of the Century for the cultivated man who knows Paris and London, or whose reading has given him the necessary breadth of outlook. Where the Trade Wind Blows is the title of a connected series of West Indian Tales by Mrs. Schuyler Crowninshield, to be published early in the spring more
