ROBERT BANKS, SECOND EARL OF LIVERPOUL, K.G.
Compiled from Original Family Documents by CHARLES DUKE
Yonge, Regius Professor of History and English Literature in

British Navy,” “ The History of France under the Bourbons," etc.

Three vols. 8vo. 425. Since the time of Lorii Burleigh no one, except the second Pill, ever enjoyed so long a tinure of power ; with the same exception, no one e'er held office at so critical a time . Lord Liverpool is the very last minister who has bein able fully to carry out his cron political views; who has been so strong that in matters of general policy the Opposition could extort no concessions from which were 11t sanctioned by his own deliberate judgment. The present work is founded almost entirely on the correspondence left behind him by Lord Liverpool, and now in the possession of Colonel and Lady Catherine llarcurt.

DAVID MASSON, M.A., LL.D., Professor of Rhetoric at Edin-

Morley (John).—EDMUND BURKE, a Historical Study. By

JOHN MORLEY, B.A. Oxon. Crown 8vo.

The style is terse and incisive, and brilliant with epigram and point. Il contains pithy aphoristic sentences which Burke himself would not have disowned. But these are not its best features: its sustained prices of raisoning, its wide sürep of observation and reflection, its devatal chical and social tone, stamp it as a work of high excellence, and as such we cordially recommend it to our readers."-SATURDAY REVIEW.
