BEETON'S (Mrs.) BOOK OF HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT, comprising every kind of Practical Information on Domestic Economy and Modern Cookery, with numerous Woodcuts and Coloured Illustrations.

"Mrs. Isabella Beeton's 'Book of Household Management' aims at being a compendium of household duties in every grade of household life, from the mistress to the maid-of-all-work. It is illustrated by numerous diagrams, exhibiting the various articles of food in their original state, and there are also coloured plates to show how they ought to look when dished and ready for the table. The verdict of a practical cook of great experience, on returning the book to her mistress, was, 'Ma'am, I consider it an excellent work; it is full of useful information about everything, which is quite delightful; and I should say any one might learn to cook from it who never tried before."—The Athenæum.

Demy 8vo, half-roan, price 15s. With Maps and Illustrations.

BEETON'S DICTIONARY OF UNIVERSAL INFORMATION, A to Z. Comprising Geography, Biography, History, Mythology, Biblical Knowledge, Chronology, with the Pronunciation of every Proper Name.

"The 'Dictionary of Universal Information,' just published by Mr. S. O. Beeton, supplies a desideratum much and widely felt--that of a comprehensive yet portable dictionary of proper names. The 'Encyclopædia Britannica,' the 'English Encyclopædia,' and the other great digests of human knowledge, in consequence of their high price, are accessible only to a few. In such works no special provision is made for supplying short and comprehensive information regarding individual words, arranged in their alphabetical order, of the kind most likely to be required by the great mass of general readers. Mr. Beeton to some extent enters a new field in devoting a Dictionary exclusively to proper names in Geography, History, Biography, Mythology, Bible Knowledge, and Chronology. In these pages condensation has been in every way sought after, and we know of no work which supplies more information at a smaller cost."—The Times.

"Care appears to have been especially taken 'to tell the stories,' if we may so speak, as much as possible in the language of the Bible, and this, of course, gives additional value to the compilation. Where explanation is required, it has been introduced, and where comment is necessary to render the subject, or any portion of it, easier of comprehension, such comment is, so far as our examination has led us to observe, both carefully and well appended."—English Churchman.

This comprehensive work is beautifully printed on good paper, in a clear and distinct type, in double columns, and has had the benefit of revision to the present time.

"This Dictionary is one which must commend itself to every intelligent reader, containing, as it does, all the recently-adopted words in common use up to the end of last year. Let us add, it is carefully and well printed, and very cheap; and having said so much, we feel assured that further commendation is unnecessary. It is good, useful, and cheap."—Liverpool Mail.

"This volume of Webster's Dictionary has been framed expressly for the benefit of those who are cultivating English composition on a broad scale. Obsolete words have been cut out; and the space thus gained has been devoted to definitions and synonyms, carefully discriminated in many instances. The merits of this special edition of Webster's learned work are cheapness, comprehensiveness of scheme, portability of form, and carefulness of typography."—Critic.
