Cr Most of these charming and convenient little books are illustrated. Price, cloth, 50 cents each. JAMES R. OSGOOD & CO.,

PUBLISHERS, BOSTON.

THE VEST-POCKET SERIES.

"Osgood's 'Vest-Pocket Series ' deserve the heartiest appreciation, and will doubtless receive it. They are small, dainty, sightly, and — rarest quality of small books — legible. The type is as large as the largest used in the Christian Union,' and yet, by an excusable disregard of the traditional width of margin, each little page contains a great deal of reading-matter. We hope the series will be enlarged as long as good material exists with which to extend it. Generally a book is companionable in exact ratio with its unobtrusiveness, and the faculty it has for being always with us. A traveller without trunk or valise might carry a dozen of these little books without disarranging his pockets, and be sure of that literary enjoyment which the stores of train-boy or railway station news-agent never afford." -- The Christian Union.

“These tiny books are not made by means of fine type and flimsy paper. The paper is heavy and firm, and the type is wonderfully clear and legible. In fact, it looks large. These beautiful little books must be accorded rank as the gold dollars of the currency of elegant letters. Yet they cost but fifty cents apiece!"Congregationalist (Boston).

“For pocket volumes, to be carried about on journeys and read by snatches, to be taken to the country or seashore in suminer, or to be read by the fireside in winter, these little books satisfy all the requirements of convenient size, attractive exterior, and intrinsic interest and value." Boston Journal,

“Volumes of such dainty shape that one might suppose them ordered for the inhabitants of Liliput. Queen Mab could be fancied wisely perusing such fairy-like tomes, as she lazily lounges in a white lily's hollow." - Chicago Tribune.

“We have rarely seen anything more exquisite in the shape of miniature editions of authors than the Vest-Pocket Series.'" New York Evening Mail.
