‘secret service of the Confederate
States in Eu-rope.’
By Captain James D. Bullock
New York: G. P. Putnam
We have received this book (through Carlton McCarthy
& Co., Richmond
) and have only space to say now that it is of thrilling interest, and great historic value, and as the edition is limited we would advise all desiring a copy to procure it at once.
We propose hereafter a full review.
We are indebted to Mrs. De Renne
, of Savannah
, for a really superb edition of Major Daniel
's address at the unveiling of the Lee
figure at Lexington
Following the example of her distinguished husband, Mrs. De Renne
has had an edition of one hundred copies gotten up in the highest style of the book-maker's art, with beautiful engravings, fine binding, etc.
‘contributions to A history of the Richmond
Pamphlet No. 2
,’ is a worthy successor to No. 1, which we would advise all to secure by ordering at once from Carlton McCarthy
& Co., Richmond, Va.
We have not room to say more now.

on the Staff
of General Beauregard

We have received our copy through Rev. 1. T. Wallace, Agent, Richmond, Va
We have not yet had time to give this book, as we propose doing, a careful reading, and we must reserve until then any full notice or review of it. But we may say now that no narrative of the ‘Military Operations of General Beauregard
,’ even fairly well written, could fail to be of interest, while one written by the facile pen of Judge Roman
, aided by General Beauregard
's personal supervision, as well as by his papers, in its preparation, could not fail to be of absorbing interest and great historical value.
A gallant soldier and accomplished engineer in the old United States army, one of the brightest of the galaxy of young officers who so gallantly distinguished themselves in the Mexican
war, and certainly among the most accomplished soldiers which the late war produced, General Beauregard
's contribution to our history has been eagerly looked for, and will be widely read.
There will be, of course, honest differences of opinion as to some things which the book contains, and regret on the part of some of his warmest admirers that certain things had not been left unsaid; but General Beauregard
is entitled to a hearing at the bar of history, and the book will find a place in Libraries generally, which pretend to anything like fullness in their historic collections.
have gotten up the book in their usual beautiful style, and it is, in paper, type and binding, a fine specimen of the book-maker's art.
