These he handled, especially the ‘Hesperus’ and ‘Titan,’ with a felicity and success unequalled among Richter's translators; and it is an illustration of the ignorance in England of the successes achieved by Americans in this direction, that Mr. Brooks's works of this series are there so little recognized.
