Works by CHRISTINA ROSSETTI:—­

GOBLIN MARKET, AND OTHER POEMS. With two Designs by D.G.  Rossetti.  Second Edition.  Fcap. 8vo. 5_s_.

She handles her little marvel with that rare poetic discrimination which neither exhausts it of its simple wonders by pushing symbolism too far, nor keeps those wonders in the merely fabulous and capricious stage.  In fact she has produced a true children’s poem, which is far more delightful to the mature than to children, though it would be delightful to all.”—­Spectator.

THE PRINCE’S PROGRESS, AND OTHER POEMS. With two Designs by D.G.  Rossetti.  Fcap. 8vo. 6_s_.

Miss Rossetti’s poems are of the kind which recalls Shelley’s definition of Poetry as the record of the best and happiest moments of the best and happiest minds....  They are like the piping of a bird on the spray in the sunshine, or the quaint singing with which a child amuses itself when it forgets that anybody is listening."—­Saturday Review.

Rossetti (W.M.).

—­DANTE’S HELL. SeeDante.”

FINE ART, chiefly Contemporary.  By William M. Rossetti.  Crown 8vo. 10_s_. 6_d_.

STORY OF A HOUSEHOLD, AND OTHER POEMS. By Mary K. Roby.  Fcap. 8vo. 5_s_.

Shairp (Principal).
-------------------

—­KILMAHOE, a Highland Pastoral, with other Poems.  By John Campbell Shairp.  Fcap. 8vo. 5_s_.

Kilmahoe is a Highland Pastoral, redolent of the warm soft air of the Western Lochs and Moors, sketched out with remarkable grace and picturesqueness."—­Saturday Review.

Smith

Works by ALEXANDER SMITH:—­

A LIFE DRAMA, AND OTHER POEMS. Fcap. 8vo. 2_s_. 6_d_.

CITY POEMS. Fcap. 8vo. 5_s_.

EDWIN OF DEIRA.  Second Edition.  Fcap. 8vo. 5_s_.

Smith
-----

POEMS. By CATHERINE BARNARD SMITH.  Fcap. 8vo. 5_s_.

Wealthy in feeling, meaning, finish, and grace; not without passion, which is suppressed, but the keener for that.”—­Athenaeum.

Smith (Rev. Walter).
--------------------

—­HYMNS OF CHRIST AND THE CHRISTIAN LIFE.  By the Rev. Walter C. Smith, M.A.  Fcap. 8vo. 6_s_.

These are among the sweetest sacred poems we have read for a long time.  With no profuse imagery, expressing a range of feeling and expression by no means uncommon, they are true and elevated, and their pathos is profound and simple.”—­Nonconformist.
