himself among English Classics; it deserves a place on the shelves of every educated Englishman."

A STRANGE STORY.

"But the greatest of all these successes is 'A Strange Story.' Hundreds of thousands rush to read this 'fairy tale of science and long results of time' as recorded by Sir E. B. Lytton."-TIMES.

"There is a philosophical explanation of everything, if we would only take the trouble to understand it; and this is sufficient to justify an indulgence in the pleasure which the story yields. Setting aside, then, the scientific question as a thing beside the purpose of a novel, and granting that a novelist has just as much right to a Ghost as to a Crusader, if he can only make it equally interesting, we are at liberty to treat the 'Strange Story' simply as a story, and to inquire whether it answers its legitimate purpose and gives amusement; and no one who has read it can hesitate to answer this in the affirmative."—GUARDIAN.

[This day.

"From the extracts we have given it will be seen that the reader who is not a Christian can have little sympathy with it. We have not been at all surprised at many of the strictures we have seen. The writer has given the work before us all the care, the patient research, which mark his historical epics. Here he attempts to construct the epic of the Soul. There is teaching in it we accept with reverence."-ECLECTIC, April.

"Full of passages of most exquisite prose poetry, blending with and ennobled by the highest philosophical reflection; so that, after the reader has enjoyed the perusal of it as a work of fiction, he will not fail to place it on the most accessible shelf of his library as a book to be studiedalike for the sake of the heart and of the intellect."
