JOSEPH II. AND HIS COURT.
BY MRS. MUHLBACH.

D. APPLETON & COMPANY,

443 & 445 Broadway, New York,

PUBLISH THIS DAY:

JOSEPH II. AND HIS COURT.

BY MRS. L. MUHLBACH.

WITH ILLUSTRATIONS.

One vol. 8vo. Paper covers, $1 50; cloth, $2.

FROM THE NEW YORK DAILY TIMES.

"The history of the introduction of Mrs. Muhlbach's works into this country is at once curious and interesting. While the war was in progress, a lady of Mobile received by one of the steamers which succeeded in running the blockade, a copy of Joseph II. and his Court.' She had the enterprise to translate it, and a publisher at Mobile, Alabama, we believe, brought it out. Although poorly printed, and on dingy paper, it had an extensive sale, both on account of its intrinsic merits and because of the scarcity of reading matter in the South. Copies of the work afterward found their way to the North, and attracted the attention of lovers of light literature of the more substantial sort. Shortly after Messrs. Appleton & Co. determined to republish all of Mrs. Muhlbach's productions, and commencing but a month or two ago with 'Frederick the Great and his Court,' they now follow up that volume with The Merchant of Berlin.'

"Mrs. Muhlbach evidently does not aim to teach history through the medium of fiction. She simply uses the material that it places ready to her hand because it is available, and also for the reason that to some readers tales ostensibly founded upon fact are more entertaining than those which are purely fictitious. In 'Frederick the Great' she exaggerated the faults or virtues of her leading characters to suit her own purposes, and because she thereby heightened the interest of the narrative; and in 'The Merchant of Berlin' she takes the same license, although to an extent less perceptible, because the actors introduced are not so prominent in history, and are, therefore, less popularly known. There is, however, quite enough of accuracy in her delineations to give her works decided value as pictures of the periods in which their scenes are respectively laid; and she, moreover, writes with a vigor so decidedly masculine that numerous critics have made the very natural mistake of supposing the writer to be a man-a delusion which she apparently aims to foster, by announcing herself simply as L. Muhlbach upon the title. page of her works."

LONDON READER.

THE HUGUENOT GALLEY SLAVE.

BEING THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A FRENCH PROTESTANT CONDEMNED TO THE GALLEYS FOR THE SAKE OF HIS

RELIGION.

Translated from the French. 12mo. $1 50.

To be published about February 10th. Early orders solicited.

FROM THE LONDON READER.

"Open the book where you will, and it is almost impossible to lay it down again. 'It is,' says M. Michelet, 'a book of the first order, distinguished by the charming naiveté of the recital, by its angelic sweetness, written as if between earth and heaven. We congratulate the publishers on their good fortune in associating themselves with such a book. Records like these do honor to religion and to humanity, and teach, above all, the great lesson that the sweat and suffering of the martyr is the best seed of Christianity.'"

FROM THE QUARTERLY REVIEW (LONDON).

"We do not hesitate to say that a more valuable contribution to the records of genuine martyrology could hardly be found. The style of the narrative in its graphic simplicity reminds us of Defoe; but the well authenticated facts which it relates are more interesting than fiction, and the incidents not less strange."
