THE object of MR. MURRAY'S COLONIAL LIBRARY, when first pub
lished, was to furnish the highest Literature of the day, at a very low price. The great success which has attended its publication shows how well suited it was to the wants of the reading public at that period. Since then a fresh class of readers has arisen, and the establishment of Literary Institutions, School and Village Clubs, Book Hawking Societies, Parochial and
Lending Libraries, has become so general, that it appears to the Publisher a good opportunity to disseminate these Volumes, at a rate which shall place
them within reach of the less wealthy classes. By removing the impediment of price, he hopes to throw open these attractive and useful Works to the Million; so that having hitherto been the delight of the Parlour and Drawing-room, they may now do equally good service in the Factory and Workshop—in the Cottage of the Peasant and Log-hut of the Colonist—in the Soldier's Barrack and the Sailor's Cabin.
The Works composing the “Colonial and Home Library” have been selected for their acknowledged merit, the ability of their authors, and are exclusively such as are calculated to please all classes and circles of readers. The character of the work is made. It is so well known and esteemed as no longer to require expensive advertising, so that the publisher is enabled to circulate it at a great reduction in price.
The attention of the Clergy, of Secretaries of Village Reading-Clubs, of Masters of Factories and Schools, is especially invited to the above announcement and the lists which follow, in which the various Works have been arranged under two distinct heads.
- CLASS A.
WOYAGES, TRAVELS, AND ADVENTURES.
Each Work will be complete in itself, and may be obtained separately, neatly bound in cloth.
