THL RAILWAY LIBRARY.

Price ONE SHILLING EACH, in Fancy boards.

“ No kind of literature is so generally attractive as fiction. Pictures of life and manners, and stories of adventure, are more eagerly received by the many than graver productions, however important these latter may be. When we consider how many hours of languor and anxiety, of deserted age and solitary celibacy, of pain even and poverty are beguiled by this fascinating department of literature, we cannot austerely condemn the source from whence is drawn the alleviation of such a portion of human misery."- Quarterly Review.
