‘[Books published this day]’. 3v post 8vo. 28s. 6d.
Notes: ‘An immense popularity may be expected for these volumes; nothing in its way could be better than the design of the work. There is no event in the records of either ancient of modern history so pregnant with the fate of nations and of individuals as the Battle of Waterloo. Among the numerous hosts engaged, there was scarcely a man who did not feel a more than ordinary solicitude as to the catastrophe. In chronicling this grand drama, history can only recount the main incidents, while by far the most interesting portions–namely the detail of private achievement, of private feeling, and of private suffering–are passed over, or consigned to the biographer or the novelist. The author before us unites these qualifications, and has constructed a series of stories, of which it may not be too much to say, that they will, on account of their subject and their power of narration, be read again and again, like those famous legends to which the battles of Cressy & of Agincourt have given immortality’. Globe.
