WORKS BY WILLIAM ANDREWS, F. R. H. S.

Cuthbert Bede, the popular author of “Verdant Green,” writing to Society, says: “Historic Yorkshire,” by William Andrews, will be of great interest and value to everyone connected with England's largest county. Mr. Andrews not only writes with due enthusiasm for his subject, but has arranged and marshalled his facts and figures with great skill, and produced a thoroughly popular work that will be read eagerly and with advantage.
STRANGE STORIES, CHARACTER, SCENES, MYSTERIES, AND MEMORABLE EVENTS IN THE HISTORY OF OLD ENGLAND.
In his present work Mr. Andrews has traversed a wider field than in his last book, “Historic Yorkshire,” but it is marked by the same painstaking care for accuracy, and also by the pleasant way in which he popularises strange stories and out-of-the-way scenes in English History. There is much to amuse in this volume, as well as to instruct, and it is enriched with a copious index. — Notes and Queries.
A fascinating work. — Whitehall Review.
Famous Frosts and Frost Fairs
in Great Britain
CHRONICLED FROM THE EARLIEST TO THE PRESENT TIME.
The work is throroughly well written, it is careful in its facts, and may be pronounced exhaustive on the subject. Illustrations are given of several frost fairs on the Thames, and as a trustworthy record this volume should be in every good library. The usefulness of the work is much enhanced by a good index. — Public Opinion.
A great deal of curious and valuable information is contained in these pages. . . . A comely volume. — Literary World.
Not likely to fail in interest. — Manchester Guardian.

LONDON: SIMPKIN, MARSHALL, HAMILTON, KENT, & CO.,
THE welcome reception from the public and the press accorded to my volume entitled “Curiosities of the Church,” has induced me to issue another work on similar lines. Like that book, this one shows how closely the Church in bygone times was linked with the national and social life of the people.
An attempt has been made to blend instruction and entertainment, and present out-of-the-way documents and other sources, which do not usually come under the notice of the reader.
