5. A SERIES of NOVELS, from the French of Price 185. Madame de GENLIS, in 4 vols. 12mo. boards.
"These volumes are felected from the Bibliothèque des Ro. mans, and contain fuch of that collection as were contributeld by Madame de Genlis. That much adimired author is too well known, and has been too much praised, to require another teftimony from us. If the tribe of novelifts would be careful to write after nature, and keep her and fome other excellent models in their eye, we should not be reduced to the unpleafant neceffity of condemning, as we are now forced to do, nineteen in twenty of the books that go under the title of noCrit. Rev. vels."
6. The RIVAL MOTHERS; or, CALUMNY: a Novel, tranflated from the French of Madame de GENLIS, in 4 large vols. 12mo. Price 18s. fewed.
"The literary reputation of Madame de Genlis is fo well eftablished, that the public are readily difpcfed to anticipate pleafure from every new production of her cultivated mind; and we have fatisfaction in acknowledging, after having perused the volume before us, that disappointment has not fuperfeded expectation.
The narrative of the novel is pleafing and interefting, the ftyle of these letters is fprightly and animated, bidding defiance to the foul fiend Ennui." Monthly Rev. 08, 1801.

9 The HISTORY of RINALDO RINALDINI, CAPTAIN of BANDITTI; tranflated from the German of VULVIUS, by J. HINCKLEY, Efq. In
vols. Price 10s. 6d. boards.
"This celebrated history had an unexampled fale throughout Germany, where many large editions were printed in the
-courfe of a few months. The Adventures of Rinaldini, a real character, who lived in the early part of the prefent century, are truly furprifing, and almoft incredible. The author poffetfes all the fire and fpirit of the German writers, and if we are now and 'then ftruck with improbabilities, bordering on fiction, we are often delighted with deeds of heroifm and courage, not unworthy of a greater name than this daring Captain of Banditti." Monthly Mirror, Nov. 1800. 10. RIMUALDO; or, the CASTLE of BADA Jos; a Romance, by W. H. IRELAND. 4 vo's. 145.
"This is by no means an uninteresting story, nor ill told; and if its author, quitting the path of literary deception, can con. tent himself with the humble fame of a novel writer, his invon. tion and industry will entitle him to a refpectable rank.” European Mag 02. 1800.

This story has a claim to much more praife than it is in our power to beflow on the greater part of the novels that come before us. There is a great deal of virtuous fentiment breathed throughout the work; and the youthful Gertrude is an amiable character." Critical Rev. 08, 1802.
