Macmillan's Colonial Library. All the volumes are issued in paper covers and in cloth.

South Australtan Advertiser.—"We have already commended the discrimination shown in the selection of books for inclusion in this library, and predicted that a sure and wide demand would be created by a supply of the best works of the most popular authors of the present day at a uniform price but little in excess of a yellow-back novel. Some, indeed, are republications of works which even now are not to be obtained in England under 3rs. 6d. The books are in all cases excellently printed and neatly bound. Works of fiction are judiciously blended with those of a more serious and permanently interesting character."

The Times of India.—"For an expenditure of two or three pounds every upstation can now start a library of sterling worth, with the certainty that a little further outlay, every now and then, will keep it abreast of the times. To messes, clubs, school libraries, and native book-clubs, the 'Colonial Library' should be simply invaluable, and we honestly commend it as the best endeavour we have ever seen to give English readers out here the same advantages that are enjoyed at home by those who live close to one of Mudie's agencies, or one of W. H. Smith's bookstalls. The individual book-buyer, and there are too few of them in India, now, will get a great deal more for his money than he ever got before… It will be the fault of those they address, if Macmillan's 'Colonial Library' for India and the Colonies does not eventually rival the great libraries of Tauchnitz and Bohn."

The Calcutta Englishman.—"Already the library extends to considerable dimensions, and anything better than the selection that has been made so far it would be difficult to imagine. Those who are familiar with the famous Tauchnitz series will be delighted to learn that something even superior to Tauchnitz has been placed within their reach at a price that puts rivalry out of the question. Each volume is a gem of the publisher's art—beautifully printed on excellent paper and clad in a bright attractive cover—and each is a work of sterling merit, by a right of established reputation. Messrs. Macmillan and Co. have made it possible, not merely to every scattered group of Europeans, but for every individual throughout the Empire, to acquire for a nominal outlay the nucleus of a really valuable library."
