JOHNSTONE. An entirely New Edition, Revised and Enlarged, by JOHN LONGMUIR, A.M., LL.D., formerly Lecturer in King's College and University, Aberdeen.
No small difficulty must needs attend the production of such a work as the present, arising as much from similarities between the two languages as from any other source. However, we may safely congratulate the Editor upon the way in which such difficulties have been overcome. It is not too much to say that the present work is a monument of patient toil and laborious investigation. The authorities for each word are given, while, so far as it is possible to judge, there seem to be no omissions.'- Educational Times.

In announcing the completion of the Copyright Edition of the BORDER TALES, the Publisher does not consider it necessary to say anything in recommendation of a work which has stood the test of a general competition, and which has increased in public favour with its years. Equally suited to all classes of readers, it has been received with delight in the school-room, the drawing-room, the par. lour, and the village reading-room. Many of the Tales have been publicly read. The high tone of its morality renders it an admirable small library for young members of the family.
