'Mr. George Saintsbury is the editor, and, as nobody living has a purer, wider, or better instructed taste than his in English literature, the series promises good things to a lover of books. Mr. Saints-bury's introduction to the extracts (Tales of Mystery) is an interesting sketch in criticism, and enables a reader to see at once what is best in the stories themselves.' - Scotsman.

'It is not surprising to find that this volume ("Seventeenth Century Lyrics") wherein are gathered so many lyric gems, has passed into a second edition. ... It is almost unnecessary to say that Mr. Saintsbury's selections are admirable, and there are few poems excluded which we could wish admitted, fewer still admitted which we should desire excluded.' - Birmingham Daily Gazette.

Mr. Saintsbury's selections from all three writers are fairly representative; indeed, those from Mrs. Radcliffe and Maturin show a nicety of judgment which the most fastidious critic cannot but approve.' - Saturday Review.

'We cannot part with the charming chaplets (Political Verse) which Mr. Saintsbury has arranged, without thanking him for the result of his wide knowledge, his untiring industry, and his impartial comprehensiveness of view.' - Daily News.

'"Political Verse." A most readable and entertaining volume.' - Times.

' " Political Pamphlets " is a very attractive volume.' - Times.

' We are heartily glad that Mr. Saintsbury has put together his pretty little volumes.' - Spectator.
