This magnificently-illustrated, lichly filled, and scholarly volume gives a complete and authentic history of the Spanish-A'merican War from its begin ning to its close. Its authors are three widely-known men, Hou. Henry B. Rus sell, the distinguished historian, lion. Redficld Proctor, Senator from Vermont and ex-Secretary of War, and Hon. John M. Thurston, Senator from Ne braska. The subject naturally divides itself into two parts : I. How we got into the war with Spain; and II. How we got out of it and with what results. This volume tells the whole story, makes clear all the causes of action that led up to and culminated in the conflict, gives pen pictures of those who figured in it, and relates many exciting inci dents, brave deeds, and thrilling adven tures connected with the struggle. The mutteritigs of the distant war cloud, the indignation and uprising of the whole, people, North and South, when tho vet erans of the Blue and tho veterans of the Gray took their places side by side behind ihe same flag, the departure of fleets of powerful modern warships, Ihe march of hostile armies, the strife and carnage of battle on land and sea, the deeds of valor and heroic sufferings of our gallant soldiers and sailors in field and hospital, all are portrayed with con summate skil. Every event is placed in chronological order, and the fullest and most authoi itative statistics are given. As might be expected from the high positions filled by its distinguished authors, the war and navy departments and other branches of the government extended every possible aid to make this volume not only a stai.dard and official history of tho war, but the most complete, well rounded, and elaborate record of the struggle that will probnbly ever be written. No three living American writers could more fitly assume this re sponsible task or produce a more hon est, truthful, and impartial book. Their entire familiarity with the political his tory of the country, their fund of statis tical iniformation, their independence and fearlessness, all guarantee that this work is one ot more than ordinary val ue. It presents a deepei, broader, more exhaustive exhibit of tho long train of causes which culminated in the con flict thau can be found in any other work. It is the most ample, brilliant, ami read able book that the war has called forth. It is not only rieii in historical informa tion, but as instructive in its method of presentation as it is fascinating in nar rative. It is, in our opinion, the only book that rises to tho dignity of a real history of the Spanish-American conflict. It needs no bolter introduction to tho eight- millions of American freemen than the names of its three illustrious authors. The magnificent illustrations include a series of seven superb steel-plate por traits of President McKinley (from a photograph approved by himself), Gen eral Miles, Sliafler, and Merritt, and Admirals Dewey, Sampson, and Schley. It is worthy of note that those are the only steel-plate portraits of these famous men ever published. It also contains colored and elaborate maps, showing in great detail Cuba, the Philippines. Por to Rico, the Hawaiian islands, etc. There ate, besides a large number of maps and diagrams inserted in the text lo illustrate battles, campaigns, naval operation etc. There is also ;!2 magni ficent full-page illustrations. In the preparaiion of these maps, steel-plates and illustrations no expense or pains have beeu spared to make them all that art, skill and talent could produce. In no other history of tho war can anything even approaching them be found. It is worth more than all other books and manuals on this subject, for in none of them nor in them all combined can be found so much solid information as this thoroughly standard high-class book contains, which has, in addition, many beautiful illustrations and the in estimable value of being truthful. If we speak warmly of this book, it is be cause it is richly worth all the praise that can bo bestowed upon it. The book is sold only by agents, and is published by the old and reliable firm of A. D. Worihiiigton & Co., Hartford. Conn., whose imprint is sufficient guar antee of the excellence of this first class volume.
