The Saturday Review, October 18th, 1879, in reviewing a new Turkish Manual, says :-" It is scarcely likely to fill the place which is still open for a thorough Anglo-Turkish Grammar and Reading Book." I trust that Dr. Wells's TURKISH GRAMMAR, now ready, does supply this want.

“Dr. Wells's Turkish Grammar is a useful manual of acquiring the Ottoman tongue as spoken in Constantinople, and contains numerous exercises for translation from English into that language. It is an improvement on most of the preceding granımars, inasmuch as it is written on the same lines as the most approved manuals for the study of modern European languages."

London, Bernard Quaritch, 1861 This is the counterpart of the great Turkish-Eoglish Lexicon above mentioned, and is the most complete and useful of all English-Turkish Dictionaries. It is even found to be indispensable as an English-Persian Dictionary by those who are employed in the English diplomatic service in Persia, notwithstanding the excellence of other recent works specially devoted to their use. DR. CHARLES WELLS, the Literature of the Turks :

A TURKISH CHRESTOMATHY, 8vo. xx and 272 pp., cloth, 168 1891

The first Turkish Reading book ever published, consisting of Extracts in Tarkish from the best Turkish Authors (Historians, Novelists, Dramatists), with interlinear and free translations in English, biographical and grammatical notes and Facsimiles of MS. Letters and Documents.

" This is the first good Turkish reading book which has been published in England, and it will be welcomed by all students of Turkish as a valuable addition to the books available for learning that language. Dr. Wells, who is Professor of Turkish in the School of Modern Oriental Languages founded by the Imperial Institute, and is author of an excellent Turkish Grammar, published by Quaritch in 1880, has taken great pains to make this Chrestomathy as complete as possible and of graduated difficulty, commencing with easy sentences, and going on to selections from some of the best Turkish authors. Translations of each piece are given for the assistance of students who have to work without a teacher."'-- United Service Journal.
