Nowhere will he find the Book of Nature more freshly and beautifully opened for him than in The Story without an End, of its kind one of the best that was ever written.-Quarterly Review.

“ We have here a most beautiful edition of Mrs. Austin's well-known translation of The Story without an End,' illustrated by E. V. B. with even more than her accustomed poetical grace and fancy: It is difficult to select when all the illustrations are so delicately beautiful, but we cannot help pointing out several that strike us especially. But it is quite impossible to describe these illustrations. We must refer our readers to the book itself if they wish to see a perfect development of the grace, fancy, and true poetical genius for which the pictures of E. V. B. have long been remarkable."-Spectator.

The illustrations are worthy of the text, for they are generally coloured in strict accordance with nature, and have been printed with marvellous skill. Indeed, we do not hesitate to say that the plates in this volume are the best specimens of colour-printing we have ever seen.— Illustrated Times.
