Baker (Sir Samuel W.).

The Nile TRIBUTARIES of Abyssinia, and the Sword-Hunters of the Hamran Arabs.  By Sir Samuel W. Baker, M.A., F.R.C.S.  With Portraits, Maps, and Illustrations.  Third Edition, 8vo. 21_s_.

Sir Samuel Baker here describes twelve months’ exploration, during which he examined the rivers that are tributary to the Nile from Abyssinia, including the Atbara, Settite, Royan, Salaam, Angrab, Rahad, Dinder, and the Blue Nile.  The interest attached to these portions of Africa differs entirely from that of the White Nile regions, as the whole of Upper Egypt and Abyssinia is capable of development, and is inhabited by races having some degree of civilization; while Central Africa is peopled by a race of savages, whose future is more problematical.

The Albert N’yanza Great Basin of the Nile, and Exploration of the Nile Sources.  New and cheaper Edition, with Portraits, Maps, and Illustrations.  Two vols. crown 8vo. 16_s_.

Bruce won the source of the Blue Nile; Speke and Grant won the Victoria source of the great White Nile; and I have been permitted to succeed in completing the Nile Sources by the discovery of the great reservoir of the equatorial waters, the Albert N’yanza, from which the river issues as the entire White Nile.”—­Preface.

Cast up by the sea; or, The Adventures of Ned Grey.  By Sir Samuel W. Baker, M.A., F.R.G.S.  Second Edition.  Crown 8vo. cloth gilt, 7_s_. 6_d_.

A story of adventure by sea and land in the good old style.  It appears to us to be the best book of the kind since ‘Masterman Ready,’ and it runs that established favourite very close.”—­Pall Mall Gazette.

No book written for boys has for a long time created so much interest, or been so successful.  Every parent ought to provide his boy with a copy.”—­Daily Telegraph.

R. Dudley, M.A.

THE TAXATION OF THE UNITED KINGDOM.  By R.  Dudley Baxter, M.A. 8vo. cloth, 4_s_. 6_d_.
