THE WORLD

OF STANDARD

LIBRARY

BOOKS.

This Series includes many of the Acknowledged Masterpieces of Historical and Critical Literature, made more accessible than hitherto to the general reader, by publication in a convenient form and at a moderate price. No Student of European History, or of the development of the English Constitution, can dispense with Hallam's erudite and luminous works on these subjects, which form a portion of the "World Library." Adam Smith's valuable Treatises; the History and Essays of Hume; Horace Walpole's famous Anecdotes of Painting in England, and some of the choicest works of Lord Herbert, of Cherbury; Bolingbroke and Locke are also included; and Montaigne's Essays, better known to the general reader for the estimate they have been held in by the choicest minds than from actual acquaintance; John Milton's "History of Early and Legendary Britain," Thomas Warton's popular "History of English Poetry," and many other books which no Englishman of Literary tastes would willingly be without, are reprinted in this careful, elegant, and cheap Library.
