the Memoir of THOMAS DAVIDSON, with his POEMS and LETTERS. By the REV. JAMES BROWN, D.D., of St. James' Church, Paisley. Second Edition. Crown 8vo. 7s. 6d.
A charming little biography. His was one of those rare natures which fascinates all who come in contact with it."-Spectator.
"A worthy record of a man of rare genius-dead ere his prime. His poems are as beautiful as flowers or birds."-Dr. John Brown, Author of "Rab and his Friends."
"This life of an unknown Scotch probationer is equal in interest to anything of the kind we have had since Carlyle's 'Life of Sterling' was written. Thomas Davidson, as a poet, as a humourist, as a simple, loving, honest, reticent, valiant soul, demands adequate recognition at the hands of the critic-a career kind and unostentatious, glorified, however in its uneventful homeliness by a rare vein of poetry and a rich vein of humour. The poetry is genuine, the humour is genuine, and the character (that which underlies both) as genuine as the poetry and the humour-the humour, indeed, went deep into the life." -Blackwood's Magazine.
"Davidson's letters and poems prove him incomparably superior in genius, wit, and humour to any Border poet of this century, except, it may be, Thomas Aird."-Dundee Advertiser.
"It is an unspeakable pleasure to a reviewer weary of wading through piles of commonplace to come unexpectedly on a prize such as this."—Nonconformist.
"A very fresh and interesting little book."-Saturday Review.

"It is the business of the reviewer to give some notion of the book which he reviews, either by a condensation of its contents or by collecting the cream in the shape of short selected passages; but this cannot be done with a book like the one before us, of which the argument does not admit of condensation, and which is all cream.........The most valuable book of its kind that has appeared."-Mr. T. H. Green in The Academy.
It is remarkable also for its marvellous power of exposition and graceful subtlety of thought. Hegel's solution of the problem of religion is at length adequately represented in English literature. Hegelianism has never appeared so attractive as it appears in the clear and fluent pages of Principal Caird."--Spectator.
