A History of the Thirty Years' War.

By Anton Gindely, Professor of German History in the University of Prague. Translated by A. Ten Brook. With twenty-eight illustrations and two maps. Two volumes octavo$4.00

"It is singular that the literature of history should have been obliged to wait two hundred years and more for a satisfactory account of that strange compound of political, religious, and military events known as the Thirty Years' War. And yet the explanation is not far to seek.,. Until within the present century the secrets of the war were locked up in the archives of the states and the muniment rooms of the old German nobility. It is only very recently, therefore, that any thing like a genuine history has been possible. . . and such a work has now been given to us by Prof. Gindely."—N, Y. Nation.
