Стр. 6 - In one respect the subject-matter of these volumes is more interesting, because it is more diversified than that of the ' Queens of England.' That celebrated work, althcngh its heroines were, for the most part, foreign Princesses, related almost entirely to the history of this country.

Стр. 9 - HISTORIC SCENES. By AGNES STRICKLAND. Author of " Lives of the Queens of England," &c. 1 vol., post 8vo, elegantly bound, with Portrait of the Author, 10s. 6d. " This attractive volume is replete with interest. Like Miss Strickland's former works, it will be found, we doubt not, in the hands of youthful branches of a family as well as in those of their parents, to all and each of whom it cannot fail to be alike amusing and instructive.
Стр. 2 - Such as they were in life we have endeavoured to portray them, both in good and ill, without regard to any other considerations than the development of the facts.
