Under this general title, it is proposed to publish a series of works relating to the Early History of the Valley watered by the Ohio River and its tributaries—including Western Pennsylvania, Western Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois--and embracing its aboriginal history, the French and English intrigues and wars for its possession, the travels and journals of early explorers and missionaries, its early settlement by the whites, their contests with the Indians, etc. This we hope to accomplish by the collection and publication of some, at least, of the large amount of materials for history now scattered among the various pioneer families, precariously preserved in the gatherings of collectors, or hidden away in State or county archives; and also by reprinting some of the early works of interest relating to the Western country, which have been long out of print and rare.

We would be pleased also to communicate with any person who possesses unpublished manuscripts in whatever form, which come within the scope of the series of publications. All old papers, such as letters, journals, autobiographies, biographical sketches, accounts of early settlements, plans, surveys, etc., are exceedingly useful to us for editorial reference. We would be glad to have the loan of such papers to copy. They will be carefully preserved and returned to their owners as soon as they can be copied.

We have now ready the first of the reprints, viz : Bouquet's Expedition against the Ohio Indians in 1764. By Dr. William

Smith. Published in 1765..

With a preface by Francis Parkman, author of "Conspiracy of Pontiac,” etc., and a translation of Dumas' Biographical Sketch of General Bouquet.

The map and plates are finely reproduced by the Phoco-Lithographic Process.

One volume, octavo, finely printed on tinted paper, neatly bound in English cloth, gilt top, and uncut edges, or entirely uncut. Price, .$3.00,

The Saturday Review. “ The French-as in other things, so in science--have a knack which we have not. Since Buffon's days they have contrived to write scientific books in a poetical fashion and with a certain bouquet, as it were, of sentiment, and a kind of glitter and sparkle, which is far from us. We feel this in looking at Michelet's 'The Bird,' which is graceful and airy in style, and is illustrated in quite the same spirit.”

The Art Journal. “ It is a charming book to read, and a most valuable volume to think over. It was a wise, and we cannot doubt it will be a profitable duty to publish it here, where it must take a place second only to that it occupies in the language in which it was written. The engravings on wood are of a very masterly character; they are all first-class, admirably drawn, and exquisitely engraved; they may be classed, indeed, with the best productions of the art that have been produced in our age."

The Art Journal (second notice). “ Certainly natural history has never, in our opinion, been more exquisitely illustrated by wood-engraving than the whole of these designs by M. Giacomelli, who has treated the subject with rare delicacy of pencil, and the most charming poetical feeling-a feeling perfectly in harmony with the written descriptions of M. Michelet himself.”

Illustrated London News. “One of the most charming books we have lately received-certainly a book worthy of perusal, and no less worthy of meditation." Extract from a Letter of M. Michelet to the Publishers.

“Paris, 10th January, 1868. "GENTLEMEN : I have hitherto had no faith in translations, but your excellent translator has reconciled me to them. As far as I can judge, his work is exceedingly well done.

“The illustrations are admirably printed, with a softness rarely shown in our French engravings.

“I am much flattered by the extreme care you have bestowed upon my book, and Madame Michelet is also delighted to see it so beautifully produced. Accept of our thanks and cordial greeting. To THOMAS Nelson & Sons."
