Advertising [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881
We have received from Mr. George .Bobertson a copy of the Australian edition of Mr. Justin McCarthy's 'History of Our Owa Tunes.' It consists of two volume*, which are well printed and very neatly bound. The merits of the work are so widely known, so much having been written about it at the time of its first appearance in England, that an extended notice is quite unnecessary. Mr. McCarthy's etjle is cften highly epigrammatis and never ineffective. He arranges bis facts well, and in dealing with even dry subjects is never tedious or commonplace. The work throughout is most interesting.and Mr. McCarthy has oertainly told as nobody else has ever done the history of the vety stirring times in which we live.
