LESSING : His Life and Writings.

By JAMES SIME, M.A.

Second Edition.

"It is to Lessing that an Englishman would turn with readiest affection. We cannot but wonder that more of this man is not known amongst us.”-THOMAS CARLYLE,

" But to Mr. James Sime has been reserved the honour of presenting to the English public a full-length portrait of Lessing, in which no portion of the canvas is uncovered. and in which there is hardly a touch but tells. He has studied his subject with that patient care which only reverence and sympathy can support; he has attained the true proportion which can alone be gained by penetration and clear insight into motive and purposes. We can say that a clearer or more compact piece of biographic criticism has not been produced in England for many a day." - TVestminster Review.

“An account of Lessing's life and work on the scale which he deserves is now for the first time offered to English readers. Mr. Sime has performed his task with industry, knowledge, and sympathy; qualities which must concur to make a successful biographer.”-Pall Mall Gazette.

“This is an admirable book. It lacks no quality that a biography ought to have. Its method is excellent, its theme is profoundly interesting : its tone is the happiest mixture of sympathy and discrimination : its style is clear, masculine, free from effort or affectation, yet eloquent by its very sincerity. It is not a page too long; and though the reader closes it with regret, the critic must own that it is not a page too short.”-Standard.

"He has given a life of Lessing clear, interesting, and full, while he has given a study of his writings which bears distinct marks of an intimate acquaintance with his subject, and of a solid and appreciative judgment."-Scotsmon.

AN ACCOUNT OF THE POLYNESIAN RACE:

ITS ORIGIN AND MIGRATIONS,
AND THE ANCIENT HISTORY OF THE HAWAIIAN PEOPLE TO THE TIMES OF

KAMEHAMEHA I. By ABRAHAM FORNANDER, Circuit Judge of the Island of Maui, H.I. "Mr. Fornander has evidently enjoyed excellent opportunities for promoting the study which bas produced this work. Unlike most foreign residents in Polynesia, he has acquired a good knowledge of the language spoken by the people among whom he dwelt. This has enabled him, during his thirty-four years' residence in the Hawaiian Islands, to collect material which could be obtained only by a person possessing such an advantage. It is so seldom that a private settler in the Polynesian Islands takes an intelligent interest in local ethnology and archæology, and makes use of the advantage he possesses, that we feel especially thankful to Mr. Formander for his labours in this comparatively little

1100e known field of research."-Academy.
