Poems of Paul Hamilton Hayne — complete edition — with numerous illustrations. Boston: D. Lothrop & Co. We have received from the Publishers this superb specimen of the Book-maker's art, of which, (reserving a full review for a future number) we can only say now that it presents the sweet poems of our Southern bard in most attractive form and we really know of no more appropiate gift book for the approaching holidays than this beautiful volume which is sold for $4, $5, $7, or $10 according to binding. Agents are wanted everywhere.
The century and St. Nicholas lose none of their attractions as the months and years go on. The former maintains its well earned reputation as a really first class family Magazine, and as for St. Nicholas we would leave it to any intelligent boy or girl in the land, who has had the privilege of reading it to say if there is anything in this country or in Europe at all comparable to it. Our boys pronounce the December (Christmas) number, “Just splendid, the best one yet out.”
The Southern bivouac, (Louisville, Ky.) for November, is full of good things, and we again bid it a hearty God speed!
