International marriage novels have been many of late, even as the number of American girls marrying abroad has increased, but this one is strikingly different from the type that has become almost hackneyed. The heroine, a beautiful girl, the daughter of a New York multi-millionaire, marries a French Duke, and goes to live with him in the ancestral château. So far, the situation is familiar. But this Duke is not the melodramatic villain too often seen. He is a gentleman and a good fellow, and in the misunderstandings that arise the reader's sympathy is evenly divided between the lonely wife and the proud and unhappy young Duke. The development of the story is of absorbing interest, leading to an exciting and thoroughly satisfactory climax. Not the least of the attractions of the story is that the authors know the world that they write about. Mrs. Kenneth Brown (Demetra Vaka) will be remembered as the author of "Haremlik," the brilliant study of the life of Turkish women which was one of the most notable and successful books of 1909. The collaboration of the Kenneth Browns is one of the most interesting literary partnerships in contemporary fiction. Kenneth Brown numbers among his books "Eastover Court House," "Sirocco," and other successful novels.

Like Locke and Snaith, Ian Hay is a young British writer whose keen sense of humor and genial insight into human nature will make an instant appeal to the large audience of novel readers. "The Right Stuff" tells of the progress of a young Scottish lad from the lowly surroundings of his home in the hills, through Edinburgh university, through gruelling years as a newspaper [Pg 2] hack in London, to the position of private secretary to a man deep in political life of the London of to-day. In this position he comes into daily touch with the immediate members of his patron's family, and ultimately, through a series of highly amusing episodes, takes to himself one of the sprightly twin sisters of his superior's wife.

Such is the story. The charm and the real fun lie in the constant surprises and whimsies of the twin sisters, in their irrepressible young brother,—a peer of that infant prodigy, The Admirable Tinker,—whose slang is infectious and novel, and above all in the character and doings of Robin the hero. Since Barrie's "When a Man's Single," readers have not been introduced to so canny a young man, or one so altogether likable and human. His extraordinary proposal alone is a chapter that will make Ian Hay famous, but in all his doings he is a hero that will delight the reader's heart, and long be remembered as "The Right Stuff."

By Henry Milner Rideout

Author of "Dragon's Blood," "The Siamese Cat," "Admiral's Light," etc. With 8 illustrations by G. C. Widney. 12mo, $1.20 net. Postage extra.


"Clean and wholesome danger,"—that is the phrase, borrowed from the book itself, that the editor of London Punch chose to describe the engrossing interest of "Dragon's Blood," Mr. Rideout's brilliant novel of last year. Still more applicable is it to his new story, "The Twisted Foot." This is an interesting, absorbing narrative of mystery and adventure in the Malay Islands. Seldom has a novelist hit upon a more haunting series of happenings than those which involve the American hero, the charming heroine, the mysterious Englishman, the more mysterious Asiatics, that live in the book. Over all is shed the glamour and mystery of the Far East—of tropical seas and remote islands. It is Mr. Rideout's best story. A brilliant series of drawings by Widney add not a little to the interest of this notable book. (Ready in May)

By Charles Miner Thompson

Author of "The Calico Cat," etc. Illustrated by F. R. Gruger. 16mo, $1.00 net. Postage extra.

That interesting village which was the scene of the episode of "The Calico Cat" furnishes Mr. Thompson with the material for another highly diverting tale. The Army Mule in question is one Mr. Job Bixby, a veteran of the Civil War. The story of what happened to him on the day set for his wedding, and the surprising complications that ensued from the innocent trick [Pg 3] played by two mischievous boys, make a thoroughly amusing piece of humor. In addition to its taking humor, the story has a vivid reality of character and incident.

The illustrations are by Gruger, whose character drawing contributes much to the interest and amusement furnished by Mr. Thompson.

How a well-poised young woman just about to sail for her fourteenth summer in Europe was hurried from the steamer by a strange young man, how she went with him to the mountains of Pennsylvania, and, chaperoned by her competent French maid, camped out in the woods for three idyllic weeks, saved a diverting little boy from designing persons, and entered upon a happy love affair, is told in this unique and charming story. The book has that happy mingling of humor and romance, unusual incident and engaging characters that have made such stories as "Our Lady of the Beeches" and "Pines of Lory" linger in the memory of their readers as the most enjoyable of tales.

The author, Mrs. Mason, will be remembered as joint author of "The Car and the Lady," one of the most successful automobile romances ever written. (Ready in April)

Among the short-story writers of the day, Miss Alice Brown stands unapproached for the ability and power of her tales of New England life. The present collection, which contains the best of her stories written since her earlier successes, is of notable interest. Lovers of her short stories will find it the equal of any of her earlier collections. The following are a few of the sixteen titles: The Play House, Saturday Night, The Auction, A Grief Deferred, Partners, The Challenge, Gardener Jim, The Masquerade.

By Mary Hallock Foote

Author of "The Desert and the Sown," "Cœur d'Alene," "The Led-Horse Claim," etc. 12mo, $1.25 net. Postage extra.

This new novel from the brilliant pen of Mrs. Foote is in a new vein for her, but in one that will win many readers. It is an ample, leisurely, delightful [Pg 4] historical romance of the days of the Colonial Wars and the American Revolution, and gets its title from a famous Colonial regiment which readers of "The Last of the Mohicans" will remember. The story begins with the birth of the heroine the night of the fall of Fort Ontario in 1756, and runs to and through the Revolution. The principal characters are this girl, her widowed father, an officer in the Royal Americans, his ward, a wild girl of white parentage whom he rescues from a long captivity among the Indians, a number of fine young men, and numerous subsidiary characters, real and fictitious, including fine delineations of Ethan Allen and the famous Schuyler family. The plot involves woodland adventures and satisfactory love affairs with a final happy outcome. The book is an admirable historic picture of the time, but it is distinguished from most historical novels by Mrs. Foote's remarkable gift for portraying the relations between people, which gives to it all a human reality seldom found in books of this type.

The large public that took delight in "Elizabeth and her German Garden," and the larger public that likes to read of the ways of children and enjoys a good love story, will welcome this delightful book. It deals with the experiences of a charming young woman whose married sisters have made her a "professional aunt." The ways of children, their moods and manners, have never been more vividly and seductively portrayed. There is a zest in the account of household happenings that wins the reader at once, but the book is much more than a story about children. The love affairs of "Aunt Woggles" and her own charming personality will become permanent memories.


This is the author's first full-sized novel. She is an Englishwoman, one of a family of fourteen children, and she married an officer in the English army. "The Professional Aunt" will make her many friends on both sides of the sea.

By Elaine Goodale Eastman

Printed and bound in distinctive style. Narrow 12mo, $1.00 net. Postage extra.

This tender and poetic story has a power of imaginative pathos that will take it straight to the heart of the sensitive reader. "Little Brother o' Dreams," the shy, poetic elf of the woods, who makes friends with the rich [Pg 5] man's child from the city and grows up to be both a bee-man and a poet, the lover of his childhood's friend, will stay in the memory as one of the unforgettable characters of contemporary fiction. It is not a novel for the man in the street, but for discerning readers it will have a rare and unique charm. Mrs. Eastman has already won distinction, both as a poet and as an authority in child culture.

By Eliza Orne White

Author of "The Wares of Edgefield," "Lesley Chilton," "A Browning Courtship," etc. New Edition. 12mo, $1.50.

Three delightful New England "maiden ladies" figure in these eleven short stories, which Miss White has so connected that they have a continuous interest and combine the merits of the short story with those of the novel. The three heroines belong to an old family, which is devoted to old ways, old furniture, and has an aversion to anything which savors of modernity and the parvenu. Miss White excels in the delineation of such characters, and she makes them all very real and life-like, so that the reader soon learns to look at them as persons and not as mere creations of an imagination. There is humor, too, in the stories—humor of a quaint but intensely satisfying nature. The love affairs have the delicate fragrance of mint and lavender, and savor of long ago. Contrasted with this is the modern time, which conflicts with the old and gives the bit of excitement found in the volume.

This book was first published by McClure, Phillips & Co., with whom it went through several editions in 1901.

For Children

By Clara Louise Burnham

Author of "The Quest Flower," "Jewel," "The Right Princess," etc. Illustrated in color. 12mo, 75 cents.

Her father wanted her to move slowly about and be dignified."
Her father wanted her to move slowly about and be dignified.

Flutterfly was a little princess, and her true name—much too long and hard for common use—was reserved for state occasions. Her father, the king, was a cold and dignified person, who was often much annoyed by the playfulness of little Flutterfly, and when one day she stole away from the palace to go skating with the pages, he threatened her with heavy punishment. First he locked her up in her own room, but that very night her window was magically changed into the opening of a fairy world, through which she went into Freezeland. The rest of the story tells how she encountered Jack Frost, how she was befriended by a Giraffe, a Swan, and a marvelous Horse, how she came to the ice palace of King Crystal, and how [Pg 6] finally after many adventures she safely reached home again. And there she lived happily ever after, for Love had transformed the sorrowing King.

The book is most attractively illustrated in color by Miss Emily Hall Chamberlin, whose work is well known to the readers of juvenile literature.


GUESTS By John Corbin

Literary Director of the New Theatre, New York; author of "An American at Oxford," "Which College for the Boy," "The Cave Man," etc. 12mo, $1.25 net. Postage extra.

Few developments in the last decade have been so startling and important as the wide-reaching improvement that has been made in the standards of the American stage, and there have been numerous indications that the drama—not only the closet, but the acting drama—is again coming into its own as a form of literature to be read. Peculiar interest, therefore, attaches to this brilliant play by a man who occupies a post of the first importance in promoting the improvement of the American stage.

"Husband" is a powerful embodiment in dramatic form of a typical American situation,—an overworked, harassed man—a wife feverishly desirous of social success and pleasure. How the short story works out must be left for the reader to discover. It is enough to say that it goes from scene to scene with ever-increasing intensity of interest, and that the conclusion is a strong, optimistic one, big with meaning for American readers.

To "Husband" is added a brief one-act piece entitled "The Forbidden Guests," in which the problem of race suicide and the unwelcome child is handled with unforgettable imaginative force. Mr. Corbin was for many years dramatic critic of the New York Sun.

Outdoor Books

By J. C. Grew

Illustrated. Small 8vo, $3.00 net. Postage extra.

Lovers of travel and sporting adventure will find Mr. Grew's book a mine of good reading. He has been an enthusiastic sportsman, and has hunted game of all sorts in nearly every part of the world, including Singapore, the Malay Peninsula, Northern Hindustan, New Zealand, Kashmir, and China. He has killed the cave-dwelling tiger, the ibex in the Himalayas, the black bear in Baltistan, the pigeon in Egypt, wild pigs in the Malay Peninsula, [Pg 7] with other game too numerous to mention. He is an observant traveler, a ready and picturesque writer, while he is one of the few sportsmen-authors who contrive to give their readers the story of sporting incidents as they actually occur. The result is a book of remarkable variety of interest and instructiveness. It is lavishly illustrated from a large collection of remarkable photographs taken by the author and reproduced with great care.

Mr. Grew, who is in the diplomatic service of the United States, is at present a member of the American Embassy to Germany. (Ready in April.)

By Edward Breck

Author of "The Way of the Woods." With illustrations from photographs and drawings. Square crown 8vo.


This is a book of unusual interest for young people. The author, after a brilliant career in many lands, has of late spent much of his time in the woods of Maine and Nova Scotia, and has taken as a hobby making pets of the wild creatures of the woods. From the thieving crow to the black bear and moose, there is scarcely an animal with which Mr. Breck has not been upon familiar terms. His close study of the ways of his animal friends is woven into an attractive narrative of the experiences of Uncle Ned Buckshaw and a group of young people while camping out in the Nova Scotia forest. Young readers will find it an intensely interesting book, from which they will derive a wide and sound knowledge of the habits of wild animals.

With frontispiece photograph of Annette Kellerman and numerous diagrams. 16mo, $1.00 net. Postage extra.

For any one who wants to learn to swim, to swim better, or to teach some one else to swim, Mr. Brewster's little handbook will be of unique helpfulness. It is a compact and well-arranged manual, giving instructions so clearly and entertainingly that the reader, given the opportunity for practice, can scarcely fail to acquire the art of swimming in all its branches in a short space of time. A particularly useful section of the book is that which presents the best method for teaching very small children to swim. The rapid increase in swimming instruction in public and private schools has been a notable feature of the last few years. Mr. Brewster's manual will be particularly useful to teachers of swimming, while to those who for any reason cannot obtain expert instruction it will be invaluable, since it will make it possible to acquire correct swimming without the wasteful habits of muscular action found in those who acquire the art by the customary haphazard process. The book is fully illustrated with clear and serviceable diagrams of positions and motions. (Ready in April.)

By Henry D. Thoreau

Arranged and edited by Francis H. Allen. With illustrations from photographs. 12mo.

No one has written more poetically of our native birds than Thoreau, and some of his best writing was inspired by the songs and the flight of birds. The fourteen volumes of his Journal, which are sold only by subscription to the entire set of his Writings, contain a wealth of matter of the deepest interest to lovers of nature, and what he has to say of birds alone makes a good-sized volume in itself. Mr. Allen has taken out this bird material, arranged it in systematic order according to species, and annotated it where notes seemed necessary. The result is virtually a new volume of Thoreau's works, for the book is Thoreau's own, not a mere selection from his writings, and a large part of it has hitherto been practically beyond the reach of the average book-buyer. It is of interest and value scientifically as well as from the literary point of view, and it will be welcomed by all bird-lovers, whether or not they have had a previous acquaintance with Thoreau.

The editor is well known as an ornithologist, being a full member of the American Ornithologists' Union, and he has had the advantage of an intimate acquaintance with Thoreau's Journal, of which he was associate editor with Mr. Bradford Torrey. The volume is attractively illustrated with photographs of live birds in their natural surroundings. It will be a book of permanent value.

This small, convenient book gives just the information that is needed by boys and girls and older people who are helping them to make gardens at home. It is written to the large number of boys and girls in ordinary circumstances, whose gardens must be limited as to position, extent, cost, etc., yet it will be equally useful to those of larger means who wish to find out for themselves the joys of a little garden. It should prove helpful also to teachers and social workers who are making school gardens and encouraging improvement work, and should supply a need for some time felt by Improvement Societies and Home Garden Associations.

It aims first to give the reader a broad outlook beyond the limits of his own garden, taking the individual garden in its relation to the whole garden land of the community and to the great world garden itself. Then beginning with the autumn [Pg 9] it furnishes timely suggestions for garden work throughout the varying seasons. It gives simple directions for choosing the site, laying out beds, selecting seeds, planting, raising, caring for, and harvesting the flowers and vegetables. It does not try to supply technical botanical information, but seeks to deepen the interest of the young gardener in all the details of his daily work by showing him something of the meaning and manner of the plant life with which he has to deal. It is furnished with a goodly number of illustrations which add to its interest and usefulness. Nearly all these are from photographs taken by the author while at her work.

Miss Higgins has had a varied experience in both school and home gardening with children of all ages.

Present-Day Topics

By William Jewett Tucker

Crown 8vo, $1.50 net. Postage extra.

As president of Dartmouth during the period when it was growing from a small New England college to one of the largest institutions of its kind in the United States, Dr. Tucker came to feel very keenly the need of quickening in young men the sense of personal power. This may be accomplished through various agencies, notably through the competition of business; but no business exists for this purpose. By common consent, however, the college stands for just this influence. From time to time, therefore, Dr. Tucker gave the Dartmouth students addresses, or less formal talks, on themes like the Estimation of Power, the Distribution of Personal Power, the Morally Well-bred Man, Moral Maturity, and the Recovery of Personal Power. Several of the most suggestive and stimulating of these talks are now gathered for publication. The volume contains also a group of four addresses made at the opening of successive college years, on the general subject of the Moral Training of the College Man, taking up successively the training of the Gentleman, the Scholar, the Citizen, and the Altruist.


The immense popularity of ex-President Tucker at Dartmouth will of course commend this book to all men who have been connected with that college during the last sixteen years, but the interest will not stop there. He is almost equally well and favorably known to the public at large, as a wise educator and an eloquent preacher, for he has been heard in many prominent pulpits and was for several years a professor in Andover Theological Seminary.

By Hollis Godfrey


Few contemporary topics are so pressing, or attracting so much attention, as city sanitation to help the health of cities. Mr. Godfrey, well known for his work in popular science, has been making a study of these questions for many years, and by his papers in the Atlantic Monthly and elsewhere, has come to be an authority in the field. This book brings together the results of his studies, in a volume that will be of interest to every intelligent citizen, and of the highest usefulness to all engaged in welfare work. The topics treated are: city air, water, milk, food, ice, noise, waste, plumbing, and housing. Mr. Godfrey's writings are entertaining as well as instructive, and the book is the best handbook of this important subject obtainable—(Ready in April.)

By Woods Hutchinson, M.D.

Clinical Professor of Medicine. New York Polyclinic; author of "Preventable Diseases," etc. Illustrated. 12mo, $1.00 net. Postage extra.

Dr. Hutchinson has won a unique place for himself as a brilliant writer upon medical topics. In this book upon one of the most pressing themes of the time, he is at his best. The list of chapters of the book indicates its helpful and timely character: A Message of Hope, The Enemy Himself, What Happens to the Bacillus in the Body, The Weapons of War, Fresh Air and How to Get It, Sunlight: the Real Golden Touch, Food the Greatest Foe of Consumption, Work and Rest, Intelligent Idleness, The Camp and the Country, Cash and Consumption, Climate and Health, Specifications for the Open-Air Treatment at Home. In addition to this there are some practical appendices dealing with the construction of open-air sleeping porches, camp building, etc. It is a book which should be in the hands of every tubercular patient, as well as of all those who are interested in stamping out the great white plague.

The illustrations consist of five full-page plates showing various styles of sleeping porches for home use, and a diagram of a tent.

The aim of this book is to furnish simple and accurate instructions for the conduct of "Every-Day Business,"—such business as inevitably falls to the lot of thousands of American women, both married and single. The methods of banking, the management of a check-book, foreign exchange, getting money in emergencies, how to send money, bills and receipts, the relations of employer and employee, relations with railroads and hotels, simple bookkeeping, on sending things, taxes and customs, the use and transference of property, stocks and bonds, wills and estates—all these are clearly and even entertainingly explained, and the woman who has read the book will find [Pg 11] herself saved many daily moments of doubt and many annoying errors. It is a book which should be in every home, on every woman's writing-table.

Miss Wilbur has been for many years a teacher of banking and political economy in Miss Dana's celebrated school at Morristown, New Jersey, and the present work is the result of practical experience in teaching the elements of correct business procedure.

The continued discussion following the passage of the recent tariff bill indicates that we are now at the beginning rather than the end of a period when public attention will more than ever centre upon this subject. In the history of our tariff no other schedule has attracted so much attention or been the cause of more controversy than that relating to wool and woolens. It was the failure of Congress to make any substantial change in duties on them which led President Taft to single them out in particular as his chief cause for any dissatisfaction with the present tariff. The one point made clearest of all in the recent tariff discussion was the need for a thorough knowledge of the facts and genuine scientific study. In this volume, based upon years of research, the author has studied the wool-growing industry of the country in connection with the tariff duties on wool and woolens. He shows an unexpected variety and complexity of forces, and proves the superficiality and fallacious character of much of current discussion. The duties on wool are shown to be of little real importance in the growth of the industry. Incidentally the book also presents a history of the woolen manufacture, touches on many points in the history of American agriculture, and throws light upon a number of the broader problems in the economic history of the United States. It should appeal to those interested in our country's industrial history as well as to those interested in the tariff question.

By Richard Rogers Bowker

Author of "The Arts of Life," etc.

This work, the outgrowth from an earlier book on copyright published by Mr. Bowker in 1886, with bibliography by Mr. Thorvald Solberg, covers the development of copyright from the earliest time (and in England as well as in the United States), to the passage of the new American code of 1909, inclusive of such interpretation as this has already received in the courts. It treats in full all the several features of the code of 1909 and is intended for the use of authors.—artistic, dramatic, and musical as well as literary.—publishers, lawyers, and the public. Mr. Bowker, as editor of the Publishers' Weekly, has followed copyright development for many years; and as Vice-President of the American (Authors') Copyright League, participated actively in the preparation of the new code. Appendixes give the text of the code, the Royal Copyright Commission digest of British copyright law with summary of later legislation, the International Copyright Union conventions, etc. This work will take a position at once as the standard handbook on the subject of copyright.

Essays and Literature

By Charles D. Stewart

Author of "Partners of Providence," "The Fugitive Blacksmith," etc. 12mo.


Mr. Stewart is seen here in a new rôle. The six papers that are brought together in the book fall into three groups. The first group, consisting of "Chicago Spiders," "The Story of Bully" (an extraordinary ox), and "On a Moraine," has to do with certain curious observations and reflections connected with the three subjects in question. For insight, imagination, and intellectual vigor, they are very notable, and strike a new note in American essay-writing. The second group, consisting of Kubla Khan and The Study of Grammar, shows Mr. Stewart as a literary critic and analyst of the first rank. His interpretation of the meaning of Kubla Khan will create a sensation among scholars and lovers of poetry, while his shrewd and entertaining remarks on the present method of studying grammar will provoke animated educational discussion and cause a reminiscent chuckle in many an old school-boy and girl. Finally, by itself, comes "We," a vivacious, penetrating parody of Kipling's famous story, "They,"—which indirectly suggests some far-reaching thoughts on literary art.

By Elizabeth Bisland Wetmore

Author of "The Life and Letters of Lafcadio Hearn," etc.

In this group of essays upon some of her intellectual hobbies, Mrs. Wetmore's penetrating mind and vivacious style are seen to exceptional advantage. She writes upon topics that are very much alive—subjects of debate and discussion among cultivated people everywhere. A few of the topics treated are The Morals of the Modern Heroine, The Child in Literature, The Contemporary Poets, Strong Meat for the Masses (i.e., literary meat), The Books of the Bourgeoisie, The Little Member (i.e., the tongue), Upon Making the Most of Life, etc. In tone and flavor, the essays are somewhat between the bookish character of such collections as Sedgwick's "Great Writers" and the personal, whimsical note of those of Miss Repplier and Mr. Crothers. They are always vigorous in thought and expression, and uncommonly readable. They will be read and talked of. (Ready in April)

For any one desiring to get at the true spirit and meaning of Walt Whitman's poetry, there could be no better introduction than this compact and illuminating volume. Mr. Noyes, who has made a life-long study of Whitman, writes of him with peculiar insight and clarity. The chapters deal with Whitman the Man, with his Art, his Human Appeal, his Attitude toward God and Religion, and, finally, with his unique message to the individual reader. The book is in no sense a competitor with any of the biographies of Whitman,—but, rather, complementary to them. No lover of the Good Gray Poet can afford to overlook it, while many who have been perhaps but indifferently interested in Whitman will find this book a stimulus to further study. It is illustrated with a rare photograph reproduced in photogravure, together with a facsimile of an interesting piece of unpublished manuscript.

Mr. Noyes was for several years an instructor in the English Department of Harvard University, but is now devoting himself entirely to letters.

This is a unique book of intense human interest, written by a well-known English author whose name is, by her own desire, withheld. These Letters, or confessions, tell the story of a woman's early wedded life with remarkable poignancy, and with a humor, tenderness, picturesqueness, and lack of self-consciousness, that cannot fail to win thousands of readers, especially women. The volume is unlike all other books of fiction. It cannot be described; it must be read. It is, in short, the book of a woman's heart written with a mingling of frankness and reserve, of strong feeling and literary skill that will make a permanent impression. (Ready in May)

This book does for the theatre what Bliss Perry's "Study of Prose Fiction" does for the novel. It is a clear and able study, not of the closet-drama, but of the actual stage play. It is not a history of the drama, though a great deal of sound dramatic history comes in incidentally. It is rather an exposition of the conditions which determine the method in which a play is constructed and which make for its significance and success. In its helpfulness for the intelligent play-goer who wants to understand what he sees and judge plays readily and soundly, it is [Pg 14] unique. Prof. Matthews has been for many years professor of dramatic literature in Columbia University, and as a writer upon the drama he has won a position of undisputed authority. This book embodies the results of his life-long studies. It is illustrated with plans and views of famous theatres.

By Edward M. Chapman

Author of "The Dynamic of Christianity." Large crown 8vo, $2.00 net. Postage extra.

This unusual book is a study of the debt of English literature, through the past century and a half, to the religious impulse. "The path of literature leads primarily to that of religion," says Mr. Chapman; "they are brethren of one blood, interdependent, and necessary to each other." In this relation, Mr. Chapman illustrates from the literature he studies, taking up in order practically all the important English writers from Cowper to the present day. He writes well and entertainingly, and never with a narrow theological preoccupation. No serious student of literature can read the book without drawing from it a flood of new light upon the ideals of the nineteenth century, while it has of course special interest for those vitally concerned with religious matters.

Biography and History

By Beth Bradford Gilchrist

With portraits and other illustrations. Square crown 8vo, $ 1.50 net. Postage extra.

Of the many notable women of the nineteenth century, few did work of such lasting importance as Mary Lyon, through whose influence the movement for the higher education of women was begun. As the founder of Mount Holyoke College, the story of her life and the force of her personality are already traditionally known to thousands of college women throughout the United States, but the world at large, which knows her chiefly as a celebrated name, will for the first time learn from Miss Gilchrist's admirable biography of her great personal magnetism and charm. Miss Gilchrist has done her work well and sympathetically, and has painted a permanent addition to the portraits of the world's great women. It is a fit companion to the remarkable "Life of Alice Freeman Palmer," one of the most successful books of 1908. In the best sense it is a book of inspiration.

This is an authoritative book of engrossing interest. The author, as Indian Agent and Inspector, has had intimate relations with Indians for a period of nearly forty years. It was he who ended the Ghost Dance trouble in 1890 [Pg 15] by the arrest of Sitting Bull, and so successful have been his negotiations with the Indians in many difficult and complicated cases that he is known among them as "The Negotiator." The story of his life and work is unique in the rich literature dealing with the subject of the American Indian. He tells of many thrilling episodes in Indian history, including for the first time the Indian side of the story of the Custer tragedy at Little Big Horn, and the story of Chief Joseph's famous retreat with his Nez Perces. Along with these intensely interesting reminiscences, there are studies of the Indian character that are of first importance. The author tells of the Indian's daily customs in love and war, of his way of looking at things, and of his religion. The whole, in short, is a thrilling narrative of adventure and a firsthand study of the Indian character that cannot be passed by. It is fully illustrated with unusual pictures of Indians and their life. (Ready in April)


By Peter J. Hamilton

Revised and enlarged edition. With illustrations and maps. 8vo, $3.50 net. Postpaid.

Mr. Hamilton has found a new historical field in the region, originally the stronghold of the greatest tribes of Indians, then explored by the Spaniards and settled by the French, and long a debatable ground between the Latins on the Gulf and the Anglo-Saxons on the Atlantic. The Alabama-Tombigbee Basin, the original Louisiana, of which Mobile was the metropolis, shifted from one side to the other in the contest until even Edward A. Freeman declared it an historical puzzle.

Opportunity is taken in this revised and enlarged edition to emphasize the American rather than the local features. There is a new study not only of the early explorers like De Soto, and of the Southern Indians and of colonial systems, but of the interaction of Latin and British institutions whose fusion resulted in a new type of American. Previous writers have contented themselves with the Latin or the British element; this is the first study of their conflict as seen from the centre of the field. In its department the book has become a standard.

Among the new material of this edition may be mentioned much light on De Soto, Pardo, and De Luna, on the Spiritu Santo question, on French and Spanish institutions. We find the first presentation of the British legislation, Indian policy and boundary, and American territorial and social evolution in the South-west. In the appendix are for the first time made available the Pardo Narratives of exploration and rare biography. The new illustrations, too, are a distinct feature. Many are of unpublished maps from European archives, and show the gradual emergence of the states at the expense of the Indian nations, and places and relics pictured are of general interest.

By Lindon Bates, Jr.

Illustrated. Large crown 8vo.

Not long after the Russian railroad across Siberia was opened, Mr. Bates traveled along it to Irkutsk, and thence by sledge along the old post road to Urga in Mongolia. His readable and entertaining narrative of his experiences, adventures, and impressions of the country and people constitutes a firsthand account of Siberia of unique interest and value; while the new light that the book throws upon some of the most important questions involved in the reconstruction of the Far East makes it one that must be considered by all serious students of this field. It is fully illustrated from interesting photographs by the author.

Mr. Bates is a graduate of Yale University, and a civil engineer by profession. He has, however, given much time to public affairs, and as a member of the legislature of the State of New York has taken a prominent stand in reform politics, and in the sound administration of the public's business.

For the Bride-to-Be

By Mabel M. Swan

Flexible covers. Crown 8vo, $2.00 net. Postage extra.

This book is intended first of all for practical use—as a record book to be kept from the time of the announcement of a girl's engagement to her wedding day. The diary is supposed to begin at the time the engagement is announced, giving opportunity for recording luncheons, teas, "showers," and all other pleasant happenings that accompany an engagement. There are pages for lists of the people to be invited to the wedding, and those to whom announcements are to be sent; for lists of gifts, names of givers, and dates of acknowledgment of gifts; pages for photographs, newspaper clippings, descriptions and samples of her trousseau, of her wedding gown, veil, and flowers from her wedding bouquet; and for lists of bridesmaids and ushers.

It is intended secondly as a gift book, as a book to be kept for future years, to recall one of the happiest times in a girl's life. The pages have attractive marginal decorations and a quality of paper suitable for taking writing ink is used. No more appropriate or acceptable gift can be imagined, when a girl is engaged.

Philosophy and Religion

By H. Heath Bawden

Formerly Professor of Philosophy at Vassar College and at the University of Cincinnati. Crown 8vo, $1.50 net. Postage 14 cents.

In the history of philosophy there have been few more notable phenomena than the rapidity with which the school of thought known as Pragmatism has gained ground among careful thinkers in the last few years, and, unlike many schools of thought, it has, as expounded by the brilliant pen of William James and other leaders, contrived to interest many readers not ordinarily attracted by philosophical subjects. Professor Bawden's book on "The Principles of Pragmatism" is a careful, logical, and lucid exposition of this system of thought, and thoughts bearing on other intellectual fields. The professional philosopher will find it important and significant, while for the lay reader it will be a most useful exposition of this most modern of intellectual currents. Professor Bawden is well known in philosophical circles for his constructive thinking.

By Francis Crawford Burkitt

In the Modern Religious Problems Series. 12mo, 50 cents net. Postage 5 cents.

The author of this book is a graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge, and has been Norrisian Professor of Divinity in the University of Cambridge, England, since 1905. He has made a special study of the Semitic Christianity that once flourished east of the Roman Empire, and believes that the rise of the Christian Church can be understood only in relation to the hopes and fears of the Jewish nation during the first century. Our view of these hopes and fears must profoundly modify the critical judgment that we pass on the Gospels and the sources from which we may suppose them to have been derived. In a previous work, called "The Gospel History and its Transmission," Professor Burkitt considered the problem how it came to pass that any historical record of the Life of Jesus should have survived. In the present volume the main positions taken up are (1) the general historicity of the sketch of our Lord's career given in the Gospel of Mark, and (2) the impossibility of making a satisfactory reconstruction of the lost source or sources used (in addition to Mark) in the Gospels according to Luke and Matthew.

By James Moffatt

In the Modern Religious Problems Series. 12mo, 50 cents net. Postage 5 cents.

The author of this monograph made his first contribution to the criticism of the New Testament in 1901 by the publication of "The Historical New Testament," a work which was at once recognized in Germany and America, as well as in Great Britain, as an original and fruitful statement of its position. In [Pg 18] 1907 Dr. Moffatt delivered the Jowett Lectures in London upon The Spirit in the Early Church. These have not yet been published, but the present monograph is a compact and popular outline of the argument developed in the first and second of the Lectures. Dr. Moffatt has contributed articles on various aspects of Paul to the Encyclopedia Biblica, the new edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica, and the critical reviews. He writes out of a prolonged study of the subject, both on its critical and on its constructive side, so that the present monograph may claim to have behind it that original research without which no contribution to the literature of Paulinism is entitled to a hearing.

By Charles Stelzle

In the Modern Religious Problems Series. 12mo, 50 cents net. Postage 5 cents.

This little book seeks to make clear the steps which have been taken to bring the Church and Labor into closer relationship with one another, and to point out methods of still closer relationship. Mr. Stelzle was born in a tenement house district in New York City. At eight years of age he left school and went to work in a tobacco factory. Later he was a newsboy, and then a machinist, which has given him the right to be a member of the International Order of Machinists, and to have access to the Labor Unions of this country. He annually attends the two weeks' convention of the American Federation of Labor as a fraternal delegate, and his addresses have created the greatest enthusiasm. He is now directing some laboratory work for the Presbyterian Church among the foreign-speaking people of New York City. He is director of the Department of Christian Sociology in one of the leading schools for Christian workers, and as Superintendent of the Presbyterian department of Church and Labor, has done yeoman service in bringing the Church to an appreciation of the laboring man, and the laboring man to an appreciation of the Church.

By Theodore C. Williams

Translator of "Virgil's Æneid" and "Elegies of Tibullus." With frontispiece by Elihu Vedder. 12mo.

Mr. Williams, whose recent edition of the Æneid is regarded by the Harvard Graduates' Magazine as "the best English translation of the present [Pg 19] time," offers in this new volume about seventy poems which may be divided into three groups,—religious, occasional, and translations from the Latin. The poems express devoutly and freely the common experiences of the religious life, but are not ecclesiastical; and though not doctrinal, the accent is rather upon truth than feeling. The standpoint is ethical idealism. As The Christian Register has said, Mr. Williams is "a religious idealist who is at heart a true poet ... as well as a thorough classical scholar and a winning religious teacher."

Riverside Press Editions

John Hay

Edited by Caroline Ticknor. Limited Riverside Press Edition. With portrait. 8vo.

A highly interesting and significant episode in the life of John Hay is presented in this unusual little book in the original documents. In 1858, young Hay, then twenty years of age, graduated from Brown University and went to study law in a dingy law office in Warsaw, Illinois. This was his poetic period of storm and stress. Remote from the literary friendships that had been a delight and inspiration in college, exile as he felt himself, he poured himself out in some interesting unpublished poems and particularly in a series of letters to his friend, Miss Nora Perry, the poet of Providence, who was one of the most interesting women of her time. The slender volume, which contains these letters and poems published for the first time, will be of extraordinary interest to book-lovers, collectors, and the many admirers of Mr. Hay. It is octavo, of about 64 pages, printed from type on Batchelor hand-made paper, and bound uncut in paper-boards with paper label. The frontispiece is a contemporary portrait of Hay engraved on copper by Sidney L. Smith.

By Robert Louis Stevenson

Riverside Press Edition of 550 numbered copies, 500 for sale. Small 16mo.

There are few more charming essays in modern letters than Stevenson's characteristic whimsical discourse which he has entitled "Pan's Pipes," a faithful rendering of that pagan spirit which is eternal in the human heart. The delicacy and classic air of the essay has made it seem a peculiarly fit subject for exquisite typographical treatment. In this edition, Mr. Bruce Rogers has given it an embodiment of simple neo-classic charm which leaves little to be desired. The little book consists of 18 pages printed from type on a special quality of Italian hand-made paper and decorated with medallions of fauns and satyrs adapted from old engraved gems. The binding is of brilliant red paper on thin boards, stamped with a representation of a maze, also taken from an old gem. [Pg 20]
