SWINTON'S ARMY OF THE POTOMAC.
A critical History of Operations in Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania, from the commencement to the close of the war, 1861-5. By WILLIAM SWINTON. A new and
revised edition, with additions. Steel plates and maps. 8vo. $3.00. Messrs. CHARLES SCRIBNER'S SONS have great pleasure in announcing the re-publication-with revisions and considerable additions by the author-of a book which will always rank among the most brilliant and authoritative works in American military history. Mr. SWINTON'S Army of the Potomac has been allowed to be for some time out of print, though it has been more widely sought than ever by those who knew the reputation of this greatest contemporary narrative of the war; and it is only recently that it has been possible for the author to carry out a long-cherished plan of re-issuing the book in a new form, that places it within the reach of the largest circle of readers.
THE CAMPAIGNS OF THE CIVIL WAR.
A series of volumes contributed by a number of leading actors in and students of the great conflict of 1861-65. The volumes are illustrated by maps and plans prepared under the direction of the authors, and by their preliminary and concluding chapters are so far connected, that the completed work practically covers the entire field of the war.
"The scheme of the Messrs. SCRIBNERS in their series of Campaigns of the Civil War' is most felicitous. There is no reason to doubt that when the series is finished the result will be incomparably the best military history of the war, as a whole, that can anywhere be found. The series is admirably designed, and it has been carried on with a degree of success that will be more and more obvious as it draws to a conclusion."-Army and Navy Journal.
The approval given by the press to this series has been emphatic and unanimous. The even more important popular verdict is best shown in the fact that, when the pub. lication was but little more than half completed, the volumes reached a sale of over Sixty Thousand Copies.
