Youngs Days of Authors. With Illustrations

Author: Ascott R. Hope
Publisher: Hogg
Publish Date: 1886

Intelligent young people who prefer fact to fiction will find in this closely printed volume quite a little library of history, chiefly of the First Napoleon. They will moreover make the acquaintance of eight authors of mark, one of whom, at least, they probably never heard of, viz., "The Russian Cadet," Thaddeus Von Bulgarin. The others are Alexis Rio, Heinrich Heine, Captain Basill Hall, Alfieri, Wm. Hutton, Mrs. Grant, of Laggan and Hans Christian Andersen. Mr. Hope says he seeks to tempt his young readers towards the study of good literature, too much neglected by them in our days of thoughtless and worthless reading! We endorse his opinion and wish him an increasing circle of readers.
