THIRD EDITION now Ready, in Two Vols., price 325., of
THE FIRST SERIES OF THE DIPLOMATIC REMINISCENCES OF LORD
AUGUSTUS LOFTUS, P.C., G.C.B. 1837-1862.
From THE TIMES. “The volumes not only throw light on the secret history of all the important transactions of the period, as they sketch the personalities of the celebrities with which Lord Augustus came in contact, but they abound in instructive appreciations of contemporary events, and in the prognostications of the veteran's matured experience as to the future."
From THE DAILY TELEGRAPH. “Lord Augustus Loftus's book is a veritable mine of valuable information and entertaining anecdote.”
From THE DAILY CHRONICLE, “To students of modern history these volumes will always possess great interest and value, and there is in their pages much matter which is at once discreet, valuable, and amusing."
From THE STANDARD. “Lord Augustus Loftus, at the close of this first portion of his Reminiscences, speaks of them as a faithful historical account of events which had come under my personal notice, and in some of which I had been an actor.' He offers this description half in apology; in reality there could be no better recommendation.
Afaithful historical account from one so advantageously placed could not fail to be of value.”
From THE IRISH TIMES. “This work will be valued as an inestimable addition to the storehouse of historic literature.
It is replete with fascinating interest to every student of the history of the generation.”
