New Illustrated Books

A NEW BOOK BY THE AUTHOR OF "BIRDCRAFT"
A Book for Young People

TOMMY-ANNE AND THE THREE HEARTS

By MABEL OSGOOD WRIGHT

Author of "Birdcraft," "Friendship of Nature," etc. With many Illustrations by Albert D. Blashfield. 12mo, Cloth, $1.50.

"The ways and habits of birds and beasts, trees and herbs, and wind and frost, are the principal theme of Tommy-Anne and the Three Hearts,' the heroine-Tommy for tomboy and Anne' short for Diana-is doubtless drawn from Mrs. Wright's memories of her own childhood. . . . The book is calculated to interest children in nature, and grown folks, too, will find themselves catching the author's enthusiasm. As for Tommy-Anne herself, she is bound to make friends wherever she is known. The more of such books as these, the better for the children. One Tommy-Anne is worth a whole shelf of the average juvenile literature."-The Critic.

"The illustrations which Mr. Albert D. Blashfield has drawn for the book have a quaint simplicity of manner that is very much in place."-The Critic.

BIRDCRAFT

"The ways of all wild living creatures have a fascinat ing interest for most children, but, unfortunately, their parents and friends are usually too ignorant to answer their reasonable questions. To such inquiring minds Tommy-Anne and the Three Hearts, by Mabel Osgood Wright, should be a boon. They will hear the unappreciated garden snake's plea for toleration, and the mole's accounts of his own good deeds. They will have a peep into Bob-o-link's wardrobe, amd a glimpse of Madame Duck's nursery, and they will learn many surprising things about our small familiar beasts and the common plants which we ail think we know. A pleasant thread of story binds together the bits of information, making them easier to hold, and the child who reads will be charmed, while he is instructed and led on to make new discoveries for himself."-The Nation.

A field book of two hundred song, game, and water birds. By MABEL OSGOOD WRIGHT. With full-page plates, containing 128 birds in their natural colors, and other illustrations. Small quarto. Cloth, $3.00.

Their Story and Structure

By SIR JAMES D. MACKENZIE, Bart.

With 40 full-page Plates and upwards of 150 Illustrations in the text, and many Plans. 2 volumes, imperial Svo, cloth, $25.00.

This is the first complete record of the Castles of England. While the previous works on the subject have only dealt with about eighty existing structures, Sir James Mackenzie here gives the history of no fewer than 660 castles. Many of these are still habitable, many are in ruins, while of others all that is left is their history and record of their sites. The present work, which is adorned with forty full-page plates, more than 150 illustrations in the text, and many plans, is an indispensable addition to every public and private library.

IMPORTANT AND VALUABLE WORK ON MODERN ART

THE HISTORY OF MODERN PAINTING

By RICHARD MUTHER

Professor of Art History at the University of Breslau, late Keeper of the Royal Collection of Prints and

Engravings at Munich.

Imperial Svo, 2,304 pages. With over 1,300 Illustrations. 3 vols., cloth, $20.00.

"It is well that we should have a translation of Professor Muther's History of Modern Painting,' if only because it is the sole book in existence which professes to take anything like a historical survey of European art during the last hundred years.'

"There need be no hesitation in pronouncing this work of Muther's the most authoritative that exists on the subject, the most complete, the best informed of all the general histories of modern art."-The Times, London.

[blocks in formation]

By JAMES BOSWELL, ESQ.

With Malone's Notes and Illustrations. Edited with Notes and Introduction by Augustine Birrell, Q.C.,
M.P. With a portrait and a frontispiece to each volume. 6 vols. 16mo, Cloth, uncut, gilt top, $6.00.
"To say outright that a book or an edition is good is to be bold.
There are, however, readers who
like to have their opinions, like their clothes, ready made, and for such there can be no harm in saying that a good little
edition of Boswell's Life of Johnson' has just been issued by the Macmillan Company in six small post-octavo
volumes."-MR G. W. SMALLEY in the New York Herald.

[merged small][merged small][merged small][ocr errors][merged small][merged small]

"The book is one of rare charm, both as to style and as to doctrine, and it ought to be read by every intelligent inquirer into the truths of religion."The Providence Journal.

"The special characteristics of Dr. Van Dyke's treatment are three: Intense modernity-a recognition of the actual present as affecting questions which are as old as Christianity: intense personality-not the intrusion of his own, but the quick recognition of the fact that these are not abstract topics, but questions vitally personal to every reader."-The Evangelist.

"The book is truly wonderful for its width of reading, its radical clearness of thought, and its charm of style. It is a profoundly vital message to the ministry of our time."-GEORGE A. Gordon, D.D., The Old South Church, Boston.

(FROM A PERSONAL LETTER TO THE

AUTHOR)

"Its literary clearness and singular cogency will make it a most helpful and valuable contribution to our theological literature."-RIGHT REV. HENRY C. POTTER, D.D., Bishop of New York.

"The grinning death's head of the old theology has been painted an inch thick with such subterfuges as this, and to this rosy complexion, it has come at last."-The New Unity (Unitarian) Chicago.

"The volume is one of the solidest and most quickening of all those which bear the title of Yale Lectures on Preaching.' It is a grand book."GEORGE B. STEVENS, D.D., Professor of Theology, Yale.

"It is all so brilliant, painstaking, and scholarly that I have been swept along with an enjoyment not often felt. The last chapter on the Election to Service seems to me to announce, as almost no other utterance has done, the gospel of the present time." -FRANCIS G. PEABODY, D.D., Professor of Theology, Harvard.

"The author in his preface frankly confesses his wish to say something that might reach beyond his immediate audience, and be of help to the wider circle of men and women who care for the vital problems of faith. The task he has thus set himself he has admirably accomplished in these eight noble lectures, masterly in conception and treatment, and full of the truth as it is in Jesus, in all its profound spirituality and divine simplicity. The book

is one that will do untold good in stirring and quickening to new life souls paralyzed by the numbing chill of doubt. Its message rings true and clear; it moves and penetrates, and is instinct with the cheer. ing and reviving spirit of divine life and hope and joy."-The Christian Advocate.

THE ART OF
TRAVEL

A well-illustrated series will give suggestions and data on "OCEAN AND LAND TRAVEL," by Lewis Morris Iddings; Mr. Richard Harding Davis will also write on "TRAVELERS ONE MEETS; THEIR WAYS AND METHODS." The illustrations, by American and foreign artists, will be highly pertinent.

LONDON AS SEEN BY

C. D. GIBSON

The artist here will, for the first time, appear as a writer. He has written and illustrated six articles giving the results of his visit to London last summer for SCRIBNER'S MAGAZINE. The illustrations are the best Mr. Gibson has yet done, and present portraits of the most striking figures in London life.

THE CONDUCT OF

GREAT BUSINESSES

To the average American his business occupation is one of absorbing interest. He wants to know how other business men manage their affairs and push great enterprises to success. No separate establishments will be described, but the authors have made diligent study of the most successful firms in each branch, and have gone to the fountainhead of information. The illustrations have been secured with the utmost care, and represent the actual scenes. This year in SCRIBNER's the American people will see itself at work.

LIFE IN AMERICAN
UNIVERSITIES

These articles are not cut-and-dried accounts of the colleges as institutions, but tell how under

graduates have lived and how they live now.

College men will pleasurably anticipate these articles from the names of their authors: Judge Henry E. Howland writing on "UNDERGRADUATE LIFE AT YALE;" Mr. James W. Alexander on "PRINCETON ;" and Robert Grant and Edward S. Martin on "HARVARD." The artists of the Magazine who will illustrate the articles have lived for some time in close contact with the student life at each college, making sketches and studies of actual rooms and scenes.

JAPAN AND CHINA

SINCE THE WAR

The interest in Li Hung Chang's visit, and the rumor that American capital is going into Oriental cotton mills, shows how general is the wish to know about them as they are to-day. Mr. Stephen Bonsal, an experienced traveler and writer, was commissioned by the Magazine to look into Japanese industrial conditions, to learn in what direction China has been affected by the war, to describe the changes going on.

SHORT STORIES BY GEORGE W. CABLE

Beyond the fiction before enumerated comes a series of four short stories by Mr. Cable, the only ones he has written for many years past, and prepared exclusively for the Magazine.

Thus, with a new font of type, improved mechanical facilities, and plans interesting a wider range of readers, begins the New Decade for Scribner's Magazine.

running through the whole romance. There is not a slow page, and the scenes will be illustrated throughout by C. D. Gibson, the author's friend.

THE UNQUIET SEX

Each sex is likely to think the other the unquiet one. The author in these bright articles, Mrs. Helen Watterson Moody, will write on "WOMAN AND REFORMS," "THE COLLEGEBRED WOMAN," "WOMAN'S CLUBS," and "THE CASE OF MARIA," a paper on domestic service.

THE STORY OF A PLAY. BY W. D. HOWELLS

Mr. Howells is never so thoroughly charming as when he is in his delightful vein of light comedy. He gives us now his best novelette produced in this vein. It sparkles from first to last with amusing situations and dialogues that are full of sentiment.

AN EYE-WITNESS TO ARMENIAN MASSACRES

The Magazine has been fortunate in securing a truthful narrative, by a writer for whose authority it can vouch, of the recent Constantinople massacres. For the first time is published an eye-witness's account, absolutely trustworthy of one of the most horrible events in human history. The article will appear in the January issue.
