NOTES OF A TRAVELLER

On the Social and Political State of France, Prussia, Switzerland, Italy, and other parts of Europe, during the present Century. By Samuel Laing, Esq. 2d Edit. (1842), 8vo. 16s. cloth. The quantity of matter contained in a single volume would outweigh a dozen or twenty common iravel.books, and exceeds that of any single work which has for years emanated from the press. Nor is it wanting in literary excellence. The subjects are all important in them. selves, and well presented with a view to attract the reader who would take the slightest interest in such kind of questions. Every thing is exhausted, according to Mr. Laing'a mode of exhaustation, yet nothing is overdone. His social and political investigations are interesting from their intrinsic importance, and attractive from their racy, vigorous mode of treatment; his political economy and his statistics have none of the dryness frequently attendant upon such subjects, for they are all well selected and applied; the reader sees the object they are advanced to prove, and is not wearied by details which convey no idea of a whole or a purpose. The composition throughout is clear, vigorous, and full of life; the style never stagnates; and in some of the more general descriptions, it displays a tough picture-like power, which presents by a few touches a general view of the country's physical aspect."-Spectator. JOURNAL OF A RESIDENCE IN NORWAY

During the years 1834, 1835, and 1836; made with a view to inquire into the Rural and Political Economy of that Country, and the Condition of its Inhabitants. By Samuel Laing, Esq.

2d Edition, 1 vol. 8vo. 14s. cloth. A TOUR IN SWEDEN

In 1838; comprising Observations on the Moral, Political, and Economical State of the Swedish

Nation. By Samuel Laing, Esq. 1 vol. 8vo. 12s. cloth. GREECE AS A KINGDOM:

A Statistical Description of that Country-its Laws, Commerce, Resources, Public Institutions, Army, Navy, etc. - from the Arrival of King Otho, in 1833, down to the present time. From Official Documents and Authentic Sources. By Frederick Strong, Esq., Consul at Athens for

the Kingdoms of Bavaria and Hanover. 1 vol. 8vo. 158. cloth. The statistics, both tabular and explanatory, are elaborate; whether they relate to general questions-as the population. the area of the country, the extent of cultivation, the nature of the soil and climate, and the leading particulars connected with agriculture, manufactures, commerce, navigation, the arts; or to matters more immediately connected with the state-as the finances, the army, the nany, justice, religion, and public education ; whilst chapters devoted to government and the court give a view of the royal household, and the different official

personages, as well as of the state of affairs previous to the arrival of the King, and an account of the constitution, such as it is. On all these points Mr. Strong's book may be advantageously consulted, especially by persons who take a practical interest in Greece."-Spectator. TRAVELS IN THE WEST :

Royal Academy of History at Madrid, and of the Royal Patriotic and Economic Societies of

Havana. 1 vol. 8vo. with Map, 15s. cloth.
