"A complete picture of the Philippines under the old regime. Their appearance ... is noteworthy as a literary event and as an important fact in the history of the American people in their world relations."-American Review of Reviews.

"Here are two books that every American should read: not simply because a Malay novelist is a great curiosity, but because these romances contain a serious exposition of the conditions which prevailed in the Philippines before the American occupation."-New York Nation.

"The best, because the most far-reaching memorial to Rizal is the translations of his picturesque novels of Filipino life."-Current Opinion.
