EDINBURGH ANNUAL REGISTER.

Early in August will be Published,

THE

Edinburgh Annual Register,

FOR 1814.

One thick Volume Octavo.

In announcing the present volume of the EDİNBURGH ANNUAL REGISTER to the Public, it can hardly be necessary to mention, that thë period which it embraces is one of the most fertile in important events that has ever occurred in the history of the world. The campaign of the year 1813 closed with the great battle of Leipsic, and the entrance of the allied armies upon the French frontier. The annals of the year, contained in the present Volume, comprise the accounts of the first campaign which took place within the territory of France, and terminated in the expulsion of Bonaparte from his usurped dominion, and the restoration of its ancient line of princes to the throne of that kingdom. A period, combiuitg interests so deep and so varions, with results so splendid and inportant, may perhaps be sought for in vain in the for. mer history of mankind; and they might long have remained without a paral. lel, had not one strange fatality prepared the way for a series of events of still mightier moment, and closing in a catastrophe still more prosperous and glorious. These, as everyone knows, took place in the succeeding year,

The Publishers have the satisfaction of being enabled to state, that the his. torical part of the Volume now about to be presented to the Public, is wrilten by a gentleman of the highEST LITERARY EMINENCE, who adds to the other qualifications requisite for such an undertaking, a minute and accurate knowledge of the locale of most of the great battles recently fought, founded on personal inspection, and assisted by military and scientific co-operation; and who has possessed unwonted opportunities of intercourse with the most illustrious amongst those who directed the movements of the grand political ma. chine.

MEMOIRS of MADAME LA MARQUISE DE LA ROCHEJAQUELEIN. Translated from the Second Edition, printed at Paris. 8vo. 12s. boards.

“ This is a book to be placed by the side of Mrs Hutchison's delightful Memoirs of her lieroic husband, and his chivalrous independents. Both are piciures, by a female hand, of tumultuary and almost privale wars, carried on by conscientious individuals against the actual government of their country; and both bring to light, not only innumerable trails of the most romantic, dar. ing, and devoted fidelity, in particular peisons, but a general character of do. mestic virtue and social gentleness, among those who would otherwise bave figured to our imaginations, as adventurous esperarloes or ferocions bigots. While her parrative acquires an additional interest, and a truer tone of nature, from the occasional recurrence of female fears and anxieties, it is conversant with still more extraordinary incidents and characters, and reveals still more of what had been previously malignantly represented, or entirely unknown.” Edinburgh Review, No. 51.
