PREFACE:

Few productions of modern French authors have obtained such deserved success as the tales of Count Xavier de Maistre; they combine the deepest pathos and the greatest simplicity with much genuine humour, and they are written in an easy style which fits them to be placed in the hands of beginners.

From the small collection which has immortalised Count de Maistre, we have selected two novelettes as particularly suited for our series of French classics. The critical extracts given in the biographical notice and as introduction to each of the episodes will be found to contain every necessary detail; and the text has been printed from the edition recently published by M. E. Réaume, professor at the Lycée Charlemagne, in Paris.

GUSTAVE MASSON.
