New Edition, revised to 1867, In large crown 8vo, price 16s., cloth, new style, 1100 pp.

TOWNSEND'S MANUAL OF DATES.

GLOBE ATLAS of EUROPE. Uniform in size

with Macmillan's Globe Series, containing Forty-eight coloured Maps, Plans of London und Paris, and a copious Index, strongly bound in half morocco, with flexible back, price 98.

(In a few days. NOTICE.-This Atlas includes all the Countries of Europe in a series of Forty-eight Maps, drawn on the same scale, with an Alphabetical Index to the situation of more than 10,000 places ; and the reation of the various Maps and Countries to each other is defined in a general Key-Map. The volume is small enough for a traveller's wallet, or for a place on the writing table.

The identity of scale in all the Maps facilitates the comparison of extent and distance, and conveys a just impression of the magnitude of different countries. The size suffices to show the Provincial Divisions, the Railways and Main Roads, the Principal Rivers and Mountain Ranges. As a book it can be opened without the inconvenience which attends the use of a folding Map.

Plans of London and Paris are added, on scales sufficiently enlarged to designate the streets and public buildings..

In this completely NEW EDITION the number of distinct Alphabetical Articles has been increased from 7,383 to 11,045. The whole work remodelled, every date verified, and every subject re-examined from the original authorities.

In comparison with the latest edition of the hitherto considered best work on the subject, “ Townsend's Dates » now contains nearly double the number of distinct Alphabetical Articles.

O

THE SEVEN WEEKS WAR: its Antecedents

and its Incidents. By H. M. HOZIER, Military Correspondent of the “ Times" with the Prussian Army during the German Campaign of 1866. With numerous Maps and Plans. 2 vols. demy 8vo,

cloth, extra gilt, 288. "Mr. Hozier added to the knowledge of military operations, and of languages, which he had proved himself to possess, a ready and skilful pen, and excellent faculties of observation and description ....All that Mr. Hozier saw of the great events of the war-and he saw a large share of them-he describes in clear and vivid language."-Saturday Review.

NOTES AND QUERIES, June 22. * We have on more than one occasion found, in the first edition of the 'Manual of Dates,' information which we have sought for in vain in other quarters. The new edition will be found more com. plete, and consequently more useful, even in an increased proportion to its increased size. The · Manual of Dates' is clearly destined to take a prominent place among our most useful books of reference."
