"The work appears to us altogether admirable in method and execution."-University Correspondent.

"A perusal of Mr Harbottle's book has afforded us unwonted pleasure, and we shall give it a place at our elbow for future use."- Literary World.

"The accuracy distinguishing previous numbers of this series is also noticeable here."-Bookseller.

"The collection is extensive, and the book will certainly be found very useful.”— Liverpool Post.
