We are sorry to see a work of so much intrinsic value, and deserving an extensive circulation, put into the bookstores at so exorbitant a price, that no reasonable person will think of purchasing it. The work is printed in ordinary style, bound up in two extremely thin volumes, instead of one of moderate size, and then sold at the enormous price of $2,25. The whole contains 260 duodecimo pages, for which one dollar would be a high charge. Except The Lives of the Novelists,' we do not remember a more arrant piece of bookmaking than this. We should think the trick, so much resorted to of late by publishers, of dividing a volume of common size into thin ones, and demanding for each the fair price of the whole, would soon be seen through. But if such is the conscience of publishers, and if purchasers are willing to uphold the trick, and be thus cajoled, there is no remedy, that we know of, nor shall we grieve about the matter, although we shall omit no opportunity to point out and deprecate an evil of so pernicious a tendency.

In these remarks we beg not to be understood as reflecting on the translator of this work. We are willing to believe that she has executed her laudable task with fidelity and ability, and only regret that her labors should be brought before the public under such a disadvantage, through the ill management of her publishers.

WORK PROPOSED. A Collection of the Best Plays in the French LANGUAGE, containing the most approved TragEDIES AND COMEDIES of the First Class, with Notes EXPLANATORY of Idioms, and an INTRODUCTION containing a Sketch of the History of French Literature and its Rules. By N. M. Hentz.

The following extract from Mr Hentz's Prospectus, will acquaint the reader with the proposed character and objects of his work.

“The want of such a work, published in this country, has been felt by those persons, who, wishing to become acquainted with the French Theatre, are obliged to purchase a number of comparatively useless volumes. In Racine's works, for instance, independent of the two first plays, which few would be tempted to read, the two last volumes are almost entirely filled with letters and other works, which fewer still would ever peruse. The smallest collection of Corneille's Chefs-d'ouvre has four volumes. Those of Voltaire have the same number. Molière's Plays are seldom found in less than eight volumes. Thus one must
