NATURE NEAR LONDON. BY RICHARD JEFFERIES. "From end to end Nature near London' is full of happy touches and pleasant fancies, as well as of instruction."-St. James's Gazette.
"All pleasant alike, and all instinct with that minutely artistic power of sketching from nature in the most careful detail which forms Mr. Jefferies' characteristic gift in literary handicraft."-Pall Mall Gazette.
"In his new book Mr. Jefferies breaks new ground; his report reads like a romance, so full of strange matter is it. . . . His book is good in itself, and a book for everybody to read and enjoy."-Athenæum.
"A very charming book."-Tablet.
"This book is in some respects the most interesting of any which Mr. Jefferies has produced; a book which crams more observation into a single page than most people have been able to make in all their lives."

THE LIFE OF THE FIELDS. By RICHARD JEFFERIES. "Mr. Jefferies presents us with another of those books which he seems able to produce at will, of which we can never tire so long as he does not repeat himself. Up to the present there has been, so far as we can remember, no repetition, and there is as yet no sign of fatigue or of exhaustion. We owe to Mr. Jefferies many delightful hours, but none more delightful than those spent in reading this dainty volume."-Saturday Review.
"We have here some of the most enjoyable specimens of his writingenjoyable both on account of their variety of subject and their intrinsic merit. It is almost impossible to give any idea of the pleasure to be derived from this volume."-Derby Mercury.
"The charm that may be found in pure and admirably modulated prose could scarcely find better example than in "The Life of the Fields,' a number of delightful essays by Mr. Richard Jefferies."-Society.
