POPULAR EDITION. PRICE SIX PENCE.

In Paper Cover, complete.

With all the Original Illustrations.

NORWAY IN JUNE.

BY OLIVIA M. STONE. "An exceedingly readable and very interesting book. We can strongly recommend the work, not only to those who desire to know something of the everyday life of the people, but also to others who contemplate a summer tour in the Scandinavian peninsula."— Field,

"Pleasantly graphic. We are bound to give Mrs. STONE a word of praise for her unvarying accuracy."-Saturday Review.

"Everything is described with a charming freshness as well as with a most womanly minuteness. Her book is at once an admirable practical guide-book for all tourists; and, to those who cannot take the tour, a picture gallery, whose figures and landscapes give a vivid idea of the scenery and of the people.”—Truth.

"Fresh and charming; pleasant, comprehensive, and instructive. The intending tourist in Norway will find it most useful. To the stay-at-home traveller its interest is equally great."Spectator.

TENERIFE AND ITS SIX SATELLITES.

NEW AND REVISED EDITION.

CLOTH.

Price 15s.

I'hat the PALL MALL GAZETTE says: “It is not a question of discussing, but of reading, Mrs. STONE's account of Tenerife and its Siz Satellites. We only feel as we follow her that the journey is indeed through the Fortunate Isles. We bad heard before of English people content to live all the year round at Tenerife, and finding change of climate and surroundings quite suflicient in going up the inountain as the summer enticed, and descending again when winter pushed them before it. Mrs. STONE enables her readers to realise this state of things. Practical information is given throughout the book upon all matters of daily interest to travellers. Food receives a very large share of attention. Tables of average temperatures are printed in the appendix. Mems. of locomotion, prices, local customs, are dealt with in turn. We have indicated how much there is to read in this interest. ing book. We have received good entertainment.”

What the STANDARD says: " To all who may be thinking of spending a winter abroad the book can be heartily recommended. The Islands possess every advantage for travellers desiring quiet. In addition to their beauty and novelty and salubrity, the cost of living is extremely low, and the difference between prices here and in the French and Italian resorts is so great that the extra cost of the journey would be more than recouped. The general public will find much that is at once novel and interesting in the work.

What the LANCET says :Possesses an importance at the present time, scarcely, perhaps, anticipated by the authoress at the time the book was undertaken. Nothing has yet been written which gives such a full picture of personal experiences during a protracted visit. This is a book which should be read with advantage by anyone undertaking a trip to the Canary Islands for health or pleasure."

What the SATURDAY REVIEW says :" It would be difficult to find anything better worth describing than this wonderful group of islands. Tenerife and its Six Satellites is marked by very exceptional merit. It is the record of a journey of singular interest, pursued with adinirable energy and determination. It is not at all impossible that Mrs. Stone's book may stimulate many to travel in the wonderful Archi. pelago, and may lead to the discovery not only that Orotava and Las Palmas are far better for invalids than Funchal, but also that Arrecife, the capital of strange Lanzarote, is destined to be one of the great health resorts of the world."
