CELEBRATED ENGLISH-WOMEN OF THE

VICTORIAN ERA.

"With infinite patience the author portrays, with many little telling touches of pathos, the doings and sayings, at home and abroad, of gifted women, painting each in her true colours, and exaggerating not at all..... The life of Her Majesty is very good. .... Much tact, delicacy, and carefulness of research are perceptible in the writer's gentle, accurate dealing with recent events.'Whitehall Review.

The manner in which the compiler has arranged the lives of the various eminent women whom he has selected to fill his book is satisfactory to a degree. He picks out with care all the principal incidents and anecdotes, which are given in such a telling style that even those who look upon biographies generally as bores will have no occasion to apply this term to the present work. ... Some of the lives are written with great delicacy and taste.'--Public Opinion. *The biographie; are carefully and thoroughly done.'-Graphic. Mr Adams's sketches are interesting and agreeable.'-Academy.
