"Colburn's Standard Novels' present a series of those works of fiction that have most tended, with the writings of Sir Walter Scott, to elevate this description of literature. This publication presents a concentration of imaginative genius."-Globe.

"Mr. Colburn's series of Standard Novels is peculiarly select; from it are excluded all which have a mere transitory popularity; in it are included all which tend to elevate the character of the modern novel, and to raise the republic of fiction to its proper elevation."-Morning Post. "What an admirable opportunity is here presented to such as are about to form a select library of fiction!”—Sun.
