“ The grand idea of the work is happily expressed by the author, where he calls it the geographical march of his tory. Faith, science, learning, poetry, taste, in a word, genius, have liberally contributed to the production of the work under review. Sometimes we feel as if we were studying a treatise on the exact sciences; at others it strikes the ear like an epic poem. Now it reads like history, and now it sounds like prophecy.

With numerous Ilustrations.

725 pp. Octavo. Price, cloth, $3,00.

This is unquestionably the choicest collection of anecdotes ever published. It contains three thousand and forty anecdotes, many of them articles of interest, containing reading matter equal to half a dozen pages of a common 12mo. volume ; and such is the wonderful variety, that it will be found an almost inexhaustible fund of interest for every class of readers. The elaborate classification and indexes must commend it, especially to public speakers, to the various classes of literary and scientific men, to artists, mechanics, and others, as a DICTIONARY, for reference, in relation to facts on the numberless subjects and characters introduced. There are also more than one hundred and fifty fine Ilustrations.

NOTICES OF THE PRESS. " Any one, after possessing this work, would deem it an indispensable companion. It can be taken up when but a few moments are to spare, and one or more anecdotes read; and when one has the mind well stored with a choice .collection of anecdotes, he has an assistant to successful conversational efforts which no consideration would induce aim to part with.” – Christian Freeman.

"A well-pointed anecdote is often useful to illustrate an argument, and a memory well stored with personal incidents enables the possessor to entertain lively and agreeable conversation. This book will be an armory from which to draw the arrows of wit and satire on occasion." —N. Y. Commercial Advertiser.

“It is a compilation of rare value and interest. The subjects and characters embraced in it are so various that every taste may be gratified; and the information it contains in regard to literary characters, artists, &c., is invaluable.” — East Boston Ledger.

“ A publication which every body should possess ; what will form a magnificent collection of anecdotes touching literature and the fine arts." - Albany Spectator.

" It is brimfull of amusing scenes, enlivening anecdotes, puns, and jokes, interspersed with reminiscences of remarkable men.” - New Bedfurd Daily Evening Standard.

“ This is a most valuable work for all public speakers and writers. To the general reader few books will be found more entertaining and instructive." - Saco Democrat.

" It forins a large dictionary of well-selected anerdotes on all the important subjects connected with literature and art, topically and alphabetically arranged, and numerously illustrated." - Farmer's Cabinet.

“One of the most entertaining things that has come under our observation for many a day.” – N. H. Sentinel.

“One of the most complete things of the kind ever given to the public. There is scarcely a paragraph in the whole book which will not interest some one deeply; for, while men of letters, argument, and art cannot afford to do without its immense fund of sound maxims, pungent wit, apt illustrations, and brilliant examples, the merebant, mechanic, and laborer will find it one of the choicest companions of the hours of relaxation. Whatever be the mood of one's mind, and however limited the time for reading, in the almost endless variety and great brevity of the articles he can find something to suit his feelings, which he can begin and end at once.' It may also be made the very life of the social circle, containing pleasant reading for all ages, at all times and seasons.” -- Buffalo Comerer cial Advertiser.

“ A publication of which there is little danger of speaking in too flattering terms ; a perfect Thesaurus of rare and rious information, carefully selected and methodically arranged. A jewel of a book to lie upon one's table, to satch up in those brief moinents of leisure that

could not be very profitably turned to account by recourse to any onnected work in any department of literature.” – Troy Budget.

“ No family ought to be without it, for it is at once cheap, valuable, and very interesting; containing matter compiled from all kinds of books, from all quarters of the globe, from all ages of the world, and in relation to every corpo real inatter at all worthy of being remarked or remembered. No work has bern issued from the press for a number of years for which there was such a manifest want, and we are certain it caly needs to be known to meet with an mmense sale." - New Jersey Union.

“The work will be useful to all classes, not only the scholar but the general reader. As a book of reference it will be invaluable, and no person who desires to possess information in regard to the world of letters, science, and art, should be without it.” – Daily News, Newport, R. I.

“ This is not a mere story teller, a compilation of long yarns' and anecdotes, but a really valuable compend of sketches of great men and literary curiosities. It is a little library in itself, and contains a fund of rich anecuotes bat is useful and entertaining to all readers. It seems like the conversation of some wise old friend, who has lived forever, and been a playmate of all great and good men.” -- Fountain and Journal, Gardiner, Me.

** Well calculated to interest every class of readers, serving as an agreeable entertainment and source of riseful mformation, when the mind needs to be relapsed from the fatigues of study or the pressure of business and care.". Manchester Messenger.

« Tie author has displayed admirable taste in his selections, and has taken due care to avoid every thing of an njurious tendency. His work is adapted to afford agreeable

entertainment, and at the same time to impart much 'Iseful information » - Zion's Advocate.

“ A most comprehensive work, embracing anecdotes of distinguished men, from the earliest times down to shoxe now living and moving imung us. Such a book has a use beyond the pleasure a first and desultory perusal may afford; the anecdotes, having an alphabetical arrangement, may be readily referred to as occasion may require, to puint á moral or adorn a tale," – Kennebec Journal.

" It is well printed, furnished with numerous illustrations representing persons and places of note, and contains a vast fund of anecdotes. The industry of the compiler in accumulating and arranging such a mass of literary matter inust have been amazing.” — Lawrence Courier
