The writings of Sir Samuel Baker are among the most interesting and instructive of modern
books of travel.”—Chicago REPUBLICAN.
SIR S. W. BAKER'S WORKS.
16mo. WITH ILLUSTRATIONS. EXTRA CLOTH, $1.50. “Certainly no sporting book we have ever read is more alive with spirit and dashing achievements, and we can guarantee that no one interested in such subjects at all can begin to read without finishing it to the last line, or can lay it down without unbounded admiration for the versatile powers of its hero and author."— The Round Table.
Eight Years' Wanderings in Ceylon.
16mo. WITH ILLUSTRATIONS. EXTRA OLOTH. $1.50. “Mr. Baker's description of life in Ceylon, of sport, of the cultivation of the soil, of its birds and beasts, and insects and reptiles, of its wild forests and dense jungles, of its palm-trees and its betelnuts and intoxicating drugs, will be found very interesting. The book is well written and beautifully printed.”—Balt. Gazette.
Cast Up by the Sea.
A BOOK FOR BOYS FROM EIGHT YEARS OLD TO EIGHTY.
16mo. WITH ELEVEN ILLUSTRATIONS BY HUARD. Cheap Edition, Cloth, 75 Conts. Fine Edition, Tinted Papor, Extra Cloth, $1.25. "No doubt the story makes some rather daring demands on the reader's credulity; but the tone of the book is healthy, and though its art is by no means faultless, boys will find it overpoweringly interesting. Just to test the book, I put it into the hands of my youngest boy, a clever and finespirited lad enough, but more given to mischief than study,--and he never ate a meal with relish till he had finished Ned's marvelous adventures.”—The London Athenæum.
WITH NUMEROUS ILLUSTRATIONS.
16 mo. TINTED PAPER. EXTRA CLOTH. $1.50.
" The book before us is a most instructive one. The habits and characteristics of our birds, from an eagle to a sparrow, are described in simple though interesting language. Numerous quotations from Audubon add to the value of the work, giving it additional reliability. ... . To the youthful, Our Own Birds' is likely to prove a bountiful source of pleasure, and cannot fail to make them thoroughly acquainted with the birds of the United States. As a science there is none more agreeable to study than ornithology. We therefore feel no hesitation in commending this book to the public. It is neatly printed and bound, and is profusely illustrated."– New York Herald.
