THE UNIVERSE:

r, the Infinitely Great and the Infinitely Little.

By F. A. POUCHET, M.D. Translated from the French.

lustrated by 343 engravings on wood, and four colored plates, from drawings by A. FAGUET, Mesnel, EMIL BAYARD, and J. STEWART. One vol. large 8vo., rich cloth, gilt top.

Half calf extra, $15. Half morocco, or half russia, gilt top, $16. Turkey morocco extra, or full calf, $30. Cloth, gilt top, $12.

The "UNIVERSE" is one of the most profusely and superbly illustrated works on Natural History ever produced. A volume of about eight hundred pages, it contains nearly 350 engravings, large proportion full page; those which represent objects in nature having been drawn with the cost conscientious and painstaking accuracy, while those which are based upon subjects which give ny scope to the imagination, display that fertility of invention and skill which seems unattainable ave by French artists. The engravings display the perfection of wood engraving, and in all its mehanical details the volume is exceedingly handsome. The letter-press, which has been translated rom the French of one of the most famous of living scientists, is written in a familiar and attractive tyle. The work, as the author says, “is not a Scientific Treatise, it is a simple Elementary Study, nade with the purpose of bringing the reader to seek in other works' more extended and thorough knowledge." Beginning with the Animal Kingdom, the Invisible World, the Ocean Architects, Insects, Bird Architecture, &c., &c., are discussed; and under the Vegetable Kingdom very many curious facts regarding the Anatomy and Physiology of Plants, Seed and its Germination, &c., are stated. In the fourth section, which treats of Geology, a familiar account of the Formation of the Globe is given, and this is followed by brief discussions upon Fossils, Mountains, Volcanoes and Larthquakes, and other natural phenomena; while in the concluding section there is a rapid survey of the Starry Universe. The volume is at once comprehensive in the range of the subjects discussed, and thoroughly accurate in the treatment of them, making it, in connection with the mechanical perfection of its finish, one of the most attractive and valuable works of its class ever published.

NOTICES OF THE FRENCH PRESS.

“THE UNIVERSE is an excellent work, and one which from its brilliant execution is destined long to pass from hand to hand, to live in the esteem of the studious and the learned, and to be cherished at the same time by those who do not belong to the ranks of science, but who are not repelled by a recreation agreeable, if somewhat serious."-Comptes Rendus de l'Exposition Universelle, 1867.

"With what grace and tenderness are the pages written in which M. POUCHET sets before us the life, the manners, and the customs of birds! M. MICHELET'S work is not more charming; and families of joyous singers that shelter their loves in nests so cunningly and elegantly hidden amid leaves and flowers, have once more awoke an inspiration, grave or gay as the subject demands."-M. OCTAVE LAROIX, in the Comptes Rendus de l'Exposition de 1867.

"Under the pen of the learned naturalist, science is stripped of its dryness, and clothed in the mantle of poetry."-LE BON, in Le Courrier National.

"It reads like a romance of the Thousand and One Nights of nature."-La Presse (Paris).

This work may be procured of all booksellers, or it will be sent, post-paid, upon receipt of the price by the publishers.
