Author of Miss Bayle's Romance.' In 3 vols. crown 8vo. “A novel of decided ability; the author sees things straightly and puts them sharply, and he has a quaintness and individuality of style which adds additional force to his satire. Mr. Argol, the financier, is an especially effective piece of portraiture, and entirely succeeds in showing that there are many worse forms of brigandage than Carlo Nerone's crude and simple method of openly plundering his victms, and worse ways of being ruined than being merely driven down the crater of Mount Etna. The subordinate characters are amusing, and altogether the novel may be commended for its brightness, liveliness, and general ability."-Graphic.
