Hindustani Grammar : EASTWICK'S concise Grammar of

the Hindustani Language, to which are added Selections for Reading, new edition, enlarged with a Vocabulary, Dialogues, 12 facsimiles of Persian and Devanagari Writing, etc. by the Rev. G. SMALL, M.C.P., 8vo. cloth, 10s 1858

The easiest method for learning Hindustani, hitherto used at Haileybury College. This new edition unites into one compact volume all that a beginner of the Hindustani Language requires. The Vocabulary has the pronunciation in Roman letters.

The first edition of this work was not undeservedly received with favour. But the labours of the present editor have added greatly to the value of the original performance.

"Mr. Small's accquaintance with the Hindustani tongue has eminently qualified him for the task he has here undertaken.

“ The volume before us is about twice as large as the original edition, and we really think, contains everything that an incipient scholar could desire ; so that any person bound for India in whatever capacity, would find this book an agreeable Vade Mecum. The Vocabulary and Dialogues are most important additions to the work, and the admirably executed facsimiles of oriental writing will be found useful in practice.”- Indian News, June 12, 1858.

" Mr. Small possesses an intimate and practical knowledge of Hindustani, as of several other Oriental languages. He has been in the habit of preaching to the natives of India in Hindustani, and one of his auditors, most qualified to judge, bas testified to the correctness of his style. This fact alone would be sufficient proof of his competence to edit a grammar of the Urdu tongue, and he has certainly done so much for the one before us that it is rather a new book than a new edition.

One desideratum supplied by him is to be found, we think, in no other Hindustani or Hindi grammar-we mean specimens of the Kaithi or running Hindi character, which is very extensively used in the Bengal Presidency.

“We feel bound to acknowledge the utility of Mr. Small's labours, and can conscientiously recommend his book."- The Homeward Mail, lóth June, 1858.

“ All the officers who were well acquainted with the Hindoostanee being selected for staff appointments, only those were left in most regiments who knowing but little of the language, had but little intercourse with their men, and therefore they learnt nothing of this (mutinous spirit) except in one or two corps where some chance linguist remained, and those corps have generally not mutinied, as their officers learnt their complaints, and explained the matter to them.'

1850 bb Persian Poetry: RUBAIYAT OF OMAR KHAYYAM, the

Astronomer-Poet of Persia, translated into English Verse, 8vo, sd. ls 1859

"Omar Khayyam is a Persian poet who is little known in Persia, and who is still less known in Europe. - Verbosity was certainly not one of his characteristics, and wanting this, he might possibly lack the passport to Oriental fame; but if the astronomer-poet of Persia appears as well in his native garb as he appears in English, it is certainly high time that he should be brought out of his obscurity. We learn that he was born at Naishápúr, in Khorassán, in the latter half of the eleventh century, and died within the first quarter of the twelfth. He was much more celebrated for his astronomical and mathematical studies and acquirements than for his poetical powers; and yet it would appear that his poems are the only remains which have been preserved to perpetuate his memory. We must thank the modest translator of this powerful and original poet for the valuable : contribution-slight, so far as bulk is concerned, though it be—which he has made to our current literature. Never was the Gospel of Despair preached more fervently than it is in the pages of Khayyám, and few of our modern fatalists could express their convictions with so much terse vigour, or deck their repulsive theories with so many quaint beauties, as this Eastern poet and sage.'

1820) Every bright deed, every ancient glory, which have shone around this time-revered Cathedral, from Wicklow to Louth, since the Norman spears first formed the boundary of the “ Pale,” are bere by the historian so truthfully, so graphically recorded, that not only his countrymen but all who are lovers of antiquarian literature should find this work a subject and a source of lasting interest and information.

“ Even Swift's memory had been libelled until ample justice was done to it by William Monck Mason's History of St. Patrick's Cathedral. That life should be published separately, as a work by itself, being, where it now stands, out of all proportion to the rest of the work ; and next to thrown away in the notes. But that life has vindicated talent and virtue from personal envy, faction, and national prejudice. In fact, the reputation of Swift had been again and again rendered next to infamous by Scotch coropliments, buried under Johnson's criticisms, and absolutely damned by Irish panegyric.
