AMUSEMENT WHILE TRAVELLING.

TAL RAILWAY LIBRARY.

Price ONE SHILLING EACH, in Fancy boards.

“No kind of literature is so generally attractive as fiction. Pictures of
life and manners, and stories of adventure, are more eagerly received by the
many than graver productions, however important these latter may be.
When we consider how many hours of languor and anxiety, of deserted
age and solitary celibacy, of pain even and poverty are beguiled by this
fascinating department of literature, we cannot austerely condemn the
source from whence is drawn the alleviation of such a portion of human
misery."-Quarterly Review.
