At all Booksellers.
The Novels Of E. Werner.

No Surrender.

“Werner has by this novel established a claim to rank with the very few writers of fiction whose works are, or should be, matters of interest to readers throughout Europe.”—The Graphic.

“A new novel by the clever author of Sucess must always be welcomed. In each new work we find no diminution of talent or interest. There is always something fresh, vivid, and lifelike, and in No Surrender there is considerable power, and we have a vein of the most delightful humour running through the book. No Surrender deserves the very warnest commendation, and it is so thoroughly well written that the reader who puts it down may be perfectly satisfied with it, and yet not know how clever it is; but if it is compared with numberless other attempts at novel-writing, the difference becomes clear enough.”—Vanify Fair.

Success; and How He Won it.

Success; and How He Won It, deserves all praise. The story is charming and original; and it is told with a delicacy which makes it irresistibly fascinating and attractive.”—The Standard.

“This charming work.”—Vanity Fair.

“A book which can hardly be too highly spoken of. It is full of interest, it abounds in exciting incidents, though it contains nothing sensational; it is marvellously pathetic, the characters are drawn in a masterly style, and the descriptive portions are delightful.”—Figaro.

Under A Charm.

“Many leaves have not been turned over before the reader discovers that this is no ordinary novel—no mere chronicle of ambition and failure, love and disappointment; the book must be read to be appreciated, it really an admirable novel.”—Pall Mall Gazette.

“Novel-readers owe a debt of gratitude to the translator of this faseinating story. The translation is so well done that no one would ever suspect the book to be other than of English origin, and the narrative is so absorbing that few who take up the book will lay it down without finishing it.”—The Spectator.
