BY THE SAME AUTHOR.

THE LIFE AND TIMES OF ALGERNON SYDNEY

Two Volumes. Mr. EWALD has ably deferded the illustrious patriot against a calumny which has been adopted by Macaulay and even by Hallam. ... We welcome this bingraphy as the means of making an illustrious Englishman better known to modern readers, and because it will bring the noble letters and other writings of Algernon Sydney within easier reach of a great mass of people who think and talk much of politics.'-ATHENÆUM.

THE LIFE AND TIMES OF PRINCE CHARLES STUART, COMMONLY CALLED THE YOUNG PRETENDER.

Two Volumes. 'Mr. EWALD has examined and made excellent use of a mass of papers regarding the Prince's life which have been lying untoucbed and unheeded at the Public Record Office. With great care, and by evincing sound judgment as to what was really worth printing, he has selected from the piles of diplomatic dust and rubbish much that helps to give the reader an insight into the character of Charles.'

SPECTATOR. He lacks neither the intelligence nor the industry fitting him for the task he undertook; and it will readily be allowed that there is no previous book which, like that before us, has arranged the existing materials as a connected whole, and constructed out of them a personal biography complete in all essentials of fact.'

SATORDAY REVIEW. * Full of interest, both for the ordinary reader and the historical student.'

DAILY NEWS. "Two entertaining volumes.'-ATHENÆUM.

SIR ROBERT WALPOLE.

A POLITICAL STUDY. One Volume. Any one who wishes to know what manner of man Walpole was, and what manner of work he did, may pleasantly and safely be referred to this volume.'

SPECTATOR. * The general view taken by Mr. EWALD of the character and career of Sir Robert Walpole as a politician is effectively placed before the reader, and gives proof of a certain candour and vigour of judgment in which on previous occasions we have found Mr. EWALD to be by no means deficient.'--SATURDAY REVIEW.

• The book is a good one : lucidly written in fresh, crisp style, and carrying on the narrative so that it rarely becomes discursive or dull,'-GLOBE.

• His book is a valuable addition to political biography, and cannot fail to be of service to all anxious to study the history of the House of Hanover.'

MORNING POST.

THE CROWN AND ITS ADVISERS.

POLITICAL LECTURES. One Volume. “We may congratulate Mr. EWALD on a popular style and clear method. His observations on everything connected with the usages of Parliament are sound, and calculated to be very useful to the class of people he is addressing.'

PALL MALL GAZETTE.
