Captain Basil Hall's works. I FRAGMENTS of VOYAGES and TRAVELS, being an Account of Captain Hall's Naval Life and Early Voyages. Three small Vols. Vignette Titles. 15s.
“ Captain Hall has been for some time past, on the whole, the most popnlar writer of Travels in England; and we have no sort of doubt that his present work will find even wider acceptance than the last and best of its predecessors. The field is wider-the interest more various, and the execiltion, we think, even more lively. The words on the titlepage, Chiefly for the Use of Young Per. sons,' are perhaps meant to apologise for the minuteness with which things, though familiar to grown persons in the Captain's profession, are occasionally explained; but, judging from ourselves, it is exactly this minuteness that will give the book its chief value in the eyes of grown landsmen.' The man who has read these Fragments, before he opens Lord Collingwood's Letters, Southey's Life o Nelson, or Beechey's Voyage, will have as an essential advantage over hiin who has not, as the student of one of Bonaparte's Campaigns owes to the possession of a good map."-Quarterly Řeriew, No. 89.
“ Captain Basil Hall, nnder the title of ‘Fragments of Voyages and Travels,' has published a kind of Autobiographical Miscellany, the perusal of which has afforded us several days of great enjoy. ment. It might have been called Recollections of the more Striking Passages of a Life at Sea. It consists of a sort of retrospective view of his career,-of his experience, of his adventures,-with a pretty constant moral commentary upon the best motives and guides of action. The author intends his book for the perusal of youth; bat we doubt much whether youth will take the lively interest in it that we are very sure age will.–Of this agreeable work we may add, that it ought to be consi. dered as a companion to all books of voyages and travels. We trust confidently to Captain Hall for a continuation ; for he tells us that he wants only the approbation of the public,—which we take the liberty to promise him."-Spectator.
“Captain Hall's first object is the improvement of his profession; and he rightly goes about the accomplishment of his laudable design, hy placing in the hands of its inexperienced members, a little work with which they cannot hit be charmed, and from which they cannot fail to derive lessons of the utmost importance for the formation of their character, and the regulation of their conduct, in all that relates to the duties which they owe to themselves, their country, and their Creator."-Monthly Review, May 1831.
“This is worthy to rank in the juvenile library along with Sir Walter Scott's Tales of a Grand. father; and we could not say more in its behalf it if were our own."-Edinburgh Literary Journal.
u We frankly confess that we have met with no work, not even excepting the far-famed Tales of a Grandfather, which has afforded us more lively gratification, or seems more calculated to fascinate the unsophisticated mind. Let the Author lose no time in resaming his pen, for his success is certain -or rather, we may say, has already been triumphant."-Edinburgh Observer,
“ These volumes do infinite honour to their anthor-may be of infinite service to the naval pro. fession-and are sure of being productive of intinite pleasure to the very many who will certainly read liem."-Literary Gazette.
“ These are most amusing volumes, not professing indeed to aim at any very lofty ohject, but performing, withont pretence or effort, what they promise, embodying, with much liveliness and acuteness of observation, the pleasures and vexations, dangers and peculiarities, of a sailor's life, and blending, with all this much sound practical inforination of a very miscellaneous nature.”Caledonian Mercury.
" These three volumes are really full of interesting novelties, and we have no doubt that, when their matter is more generally known, they will keep alongside in popularity with the Tales of a Grandfather. Were it not for these piping times of peace, Captain Hall would be rated as another De Foe, for we suspect that many a mamma would have some difficulty in keeping her dear boy from a sea life after a peruşal of these very interesting fragments.”-Scots Times.
2. CAPTAIN HALL'S TRAVELS in NORTH AMERICA, in 1827 and 1829. The Third Edition, with Additions. Three vols. Post 8vo, with a coloured Map, L.), 11s. 60.
“ Colonel Davies said, he thought great benefit would result to our Penitentiary Discipline, if we acted upon the system adopted in the United States. Criminals in England were frequently rendered worse by intercourse with one another in the hulks and prisons. In America, they were confined at night in separate solitary cells, and brought out in the morning to work in silence, and under vigilant superintendence during the day. Many useful hints on these
topics might be taken from the work of Captain BASIL HALL ON AMERICA."-Debate in the House of Commons, 21st May, 1830. “Captain Hall's
Descriptive Views look almost as if thrown out by some happy mechanical aid, corresponding to that of his Camera Lucida."--Edinburgh Review, Sept. 182.
“We sincerely rejoice, that after the crowds of ignorant and trifling people who have lately trarelled in the United States, and published their observations, a man of talent, knowledge, and reflection, has at last paid a visit to that remarkable country, and spoken out, for the instruction of Europe. We have not space, in our present Number, to speak as we could wish of Captain Hall."Athenæum.
" Captain Hall's book may probably do good in America ; we hope it will—but we are quite sure it must do so here. It may furnish many well-disposed persons with arguments by which to defend the blessings they enjoy. It may decide the wavering, and confute, if not silence, the turbulent and revolutionary. The common-sense views he has taken, the penetration he has exhibited in sisting facts, and the powerful scrutiny he has exercised, give to his communications a very uncommon charaeter both of interest and information."Quarterly Review, Nov. 1829.
