Not illustrated. 1884 edition. Excerpt: ...have had better opportunities for studying character in the several strata of society, in different parts of the civilized world, and under all the various conditions of life, than the author of this book. It will be found that in " Lai " he has known how to avail himself of his advantages; that, moreover, he has had a story to tell, and that he has told it gracefully, forcibly and dramatically. Not the least interesting feature of the novel is that relating to the education of woman, and hor ability to cultivate a science, even though it may present ropulsive aspects, without losing the delicacy and refinement that belong to her. Dr. Hammond has discussed this as well as other social questions of the day with a boldness and a thoroughness that, it is believed, will be a lmired by the majority of readers, and that, though some may differ from him in his conclusions, few will fail to recognize the force with which the subject is presented. 12mo, Cloth, Price $1 50.
