الصفحة 318 - This interesting work contains by far the most complete, the most enlightened, and the most reliable amount of what has been hitherto almost the terra incognita of European Turkey, and supplies the reader with abundance of entertainment as well as instruction."—John Bull.
الصفحة 317 - The work embraces the most varied topics, — political parties, religious eccentricities, the flights of literature, and the absurdities of pretenders to learning, all come in for their share of satire ; while in other papers we have specimens of genuine American exaggerations, or graphic pictures of social and domestic life as it is more especially in the ruder districts and in the back settlements, or again sallies of broad humour, exhibiting those characteristics which form in the country itself...
الصفحة 312 - A work of high literary and historical merit. Rarely have the strange vicissitudes of romance been more intimately blended with the facts of real history than in the life of Marie de Medicis; nor has the difficult problem of combining with the fidelity of biography the graphic power of dramatic delineation been often more suceessfully solved than by the talented author of the volumes before us.
الصفحة 318 - These important volumes appear at an opportune moment, as they describe some of those countries to which public attention is now more particularly directed : Turkey, Greece, Hungary, and Austria. The author has given us a most interesting picture of the Turkish Empire, its weaknesses, and the...

الصفحة 316 - We conceive this work to be by far the most valuable and important Judge Haliburton has ever written. While teeming with interest, moral and historical, to the general reader, it equally constitutes a philosophical study for the politician and statesman. It will be found to let in a flood of light upon the actual origin, formation, and progress of the republic of the United States."— Naval and Military Gazette.
الصفحة 318 - An excellent and admirable work. Mr. Spencer is a very able writer, a shrewd, experienced and philosophical observer, an eminently thinking and yet practical man. His work forms the most valuable addition that our literature has lately received. He sets forth to inquire and learn; he returns to inform and suggest; and information most valuable and interesting has he here bestowed upon us."—Tail's Magazine.
