Comprising together nearly One Thousand Pages of Reading—the
cheapest series of Books ever printed.

We have been better pleased with these works than with any we have met with for
a long time. The ground upon which the author has ventured is fearfully full of difficulities,
but he has threaded his way with most admirable skill.

London Age.

A raciness and geniality of spirit pervade the scenes, which commend the book to all
who love to look back to the merry days of Old England.

London Athenæum.Rao.
of “Youth of Shakspeare

It is no slight praise to any, that the romantic portions of the book remind us most
strongly of the Foe's narrations.

Ibid.Critique on “Shakspeare and his Friends.”

The Shakspeare novels are now generally known, and justify appreciated. They
are a valuable addition to our literature.

United Service Journal (Eng.)

The easy buoyancy and untiring vigor of the composition are very remarkable, as
well as the living manners displayed in the books.

London Spectator.

Novels of rare interest and beauty.

London Sunday Times.

They are models of elegant and artistic composition—replete with original and striking
beauties, and inspiring the reader with an interest scarcely inferior to that of the
Waverly series. We warmly advice those who have not met with these books, to obtain
them as rapidly as possible, for they are not ephemeral in value. They truly deserve
a conspicuous position among the best selections of fictitions literature in public
as well as private libraries. We have often recommended these books as being entirely
excellent, and we never knew a person of taste and judgment who was not delighted
with them.

Park Benjamin's American Mail.

There is in these novels a great deal of kindly wit and humor, and a most pervading
spirit of humanity. Shakspeare and the other favorite characters are represented in a
warm, genial light, and the mind of the reader realty gets, through them, a much
broader and sweeter view of that wonderful age.

Amer. Review.

We commend the whole series to the attention and favor of all our readers. To those
who really love Shakspeare, and do not merely talk of loving him, these books cannot
but he highly interesting, giving an insight as they do, into the daily life of “Sweet
Will” and his chosen companions. The price of the set is 81.50. It is rare, even in
these days of cheap literature, that so little money will buy the means of so much enjoyment.

New York Courier and Enquirer.

Have you ever read the series of works called the “Shakspeare novels.” just published
by Messrs. Burzess, Stringer, and Company? If you have not, don't fail to do
so. Charles Lamb has hit off the character of these vivid portraits, which are really
drown to the very life, and in the very manner of the age in which they lived. The
sweet “Swan of Avon” is not made to “enckle like a goose,” but himself and
“friends” are actual living, breathing people before you.

Editor's Table
Kaick. Mag.

They are among the few works of fiction that will not perish with the reading; for,
as long as Shakspeare endures, these “Notes” of his times and his contemporaries,
will find readers and admirers.

Hunt's Magazine.

A short time since, there felt into our hands a Paris copy of this historical series,
and we thought then, and think still, that they formed one of the most delightful productions
we ever read—worthy of their great subject, which is the strongest praise it
is possible to give.
