Extracts from Literary Notices.

“The present series—taking its name from the opening volume, which contained a translation of the Knight without Fear and without Reproach—will really, we think, fill a void in the shelves of all except the most complete English libraries. These little square-shaped volumes contain, in a very manageable and pretty form, a great many things not very easy of access elsewhere, and some things for the first time brought together.”—Pall Mall Gazette. “We have here two more volumes of the series appropriately called the ‘Bayard,’ as they certainly are ‘sans reproche.’ Of convenient size, with clear typography and tasteful binding, we know no other little volumes which make such good gift-books for persons of mature age.”—Examiner. “St. Louis and his companions, as described by Joinville, not only in their glistening armour, but in their every-day attire, are brought nearer to us, become intelligible to us, and teach us lessons of humanity which we can learn from men only, and not from saints and heroes. Here lies the real value of real history. It widens our minds and our hearts, and gives us that true knowledge of the world and of human nature in all its phases which but few can gain in the short span of their own life, and in the narrow sphere of their friends and enemies. We can hardly imagine a better book for boys to read or for men to ponder over.”—Times.

Inkwell advertisement illustration

Producing Ink for every-day use for more than a Hundred Years.

Various Models in Porcelain, Crystal, Wood, Bronze, &c. are in preparation.

Notice.—This little apparatus contains a chemical product unknown in the arts. The composition, which possesses remarkable colouring properties, is soluble in cold water; but, by a peculiar arrangement in the interior, the water dissolving the product can only become, as it were, saturated with it, but without diluting the material or converting it into pulp or syrup.

The material acting like a soluble salt, the solution having attained a certain degree of density, it remains stable, without precipitate, and the liquid, always limpid, constitutes an Ink of a doubly superior character, rivalling in all respects the best modern Inks.

Messrs. Sampson Low & Co. and Messrs. Hachette & Co. are the Proprietors and Patentees.
