Prof. Dowden writes:

“ It seems to me one of the most desirable of all editions of Shakespeare, admirably conceived and admirably executed.” Mr. Sidney Lee writes :

“You seem to me to have done your work of editing with uncommon skill and thoroughness. I am quite convinced of its value and ability.” Mr. Arthur Symons writes :

“Your admirable Shakespeare. : .. Pray accept my heartiest congratulations on the new, important, and attractive undertaking.'

HISTORY IN SCOTT'S NOVELS

“We think that no thoughtful youth should begin a novel of Scott without reading through a chapter in some such work as this of Mr. Canning's.Daily News. “Lovers of Scott owe Mr. Canning a debt of gratitude."

Morning Advertiser. “It bears evidence of a very close and careful study of the Waverley Novels, and should not only refresh the memory of the reader, but incite him to further study of the master."--Scotsman. “Should be welcomed by all lovers and students of Scott.”

The People. “The only wonder is that this obviously fascinating subject has never before been treated in just this way.”-Outlook, New York.

“We confidently recommend it to the attention of students of literature in the fullest assurance that it will be both useful and instructive.”-Irish Times.

“There are no doubt many readers who will be glad to welcome a systematic presentation of history, as recorded in the Waverley Novels, and such will find in Mr. Canning an enthusiast on the subject."--Daily Telegraph.

“The work is interesting alike by its subject and treatment, and its value will be most fully admitted by those who know Scott best.”Manchester Courier.

“Mr. Canning has brought to his arduous task a mind at once appreciative and critical, and the work he has produced is full of reading, delightful and instructive.”--College Echoes.

“Those familiar with Scott, after reading this volume, will return to the novels and find in them new beauties and new meanings.”Liverpool Courier.

“ History commenced among the modern nations of Europe in romance,' observes Macaulay, in his essay, a fact which makes a study of the History in Scott's Novels' (imported by A. Wessels) by the Hon. A. S. G. Canning, of particular interest and importance.”—The Globe, New York.

HISTORY

“Shakespeare during the present (nineteenth] century has been
continually rising, until now his position is so high that criticism
is practically paralysed and societies occupy themselves with the
minutiæ of his sentences."
