SKEAT, Litt.D. 16mo, 25 cents. ** The editor has succeeded admirably in hitting the gold mean between brevity and comprehensiveness, and has supplied a want long felt by teachers for a cheap and scholarly introduction to Chaucer's language and poetry. This edition should now supersede all others in the schools, except where there is time for the fuller editions by the same editor."
