THE BOOK OF THE DAY. CAMP AND QUARTER-DECK
[figure description] Advertisement.[end figure description]
OF THE VARIOUS BATTLES FOUGHT ON LAND AND AT SEA
FROM THE BREAKING OUT OF THE FRENCH REVOLUTION
TO THE BATTLE OF WATERLOO, 1792-1815.
OVER ONE HUNDRED ORIGINAL AND COMPLETE BIOGRAPHIC.
SKETCHES OF THE PRINCIPAL MILITARY AND NAVAL
COMMANDERS SERVING DURING THAT PERIOD.
The present Work professes to be the first in an English dress, (excepting,
perhaps, the translation from Thiers,) in which justice is done to
the contending parties. The labors of others, besides the English authorities,
have been consulted; consequently the reader will find very different
relations and facts, in numerous and very important instances
those found in works so biassed as the class to which Alison and Scott
belong. It is time we knew better respecting the history of this great
European epoch, than the simple pinning of one's faith upon interested
authorities, that write all on one side.

by Burgess and Stringer, New-York, Part I. The design of this work is to present in
a popular form a detail of the military and naval engagements which occurred during
the last great European war. The author has taken as his authorities the most accredited
writers on the subject; and has invested his narratives with all the interest
which a popular and brilliant style is capable of affording to the stirring events he has
undertaken to delineate. We have no doubt but that the work will become extremely
popular with a large class of readers.
