NEW MACMILLAN BOOKS

NOVELS

The Long Road

TITLE

"A thrilling and absorbing story. Through all the tragedy ... there is a rarely sweet accompaniment of tender tones, of love and heroism and intermittent, never quite lost, hope. -A touching, beautiful story."-Daily News.

A Victor of Salamis

Cloth, $1.50.

A novel of adventure full of brilliance and action. There is no breaking in the thread of
interest. Glaucon, a winner in the Isthmian games, outlawed as a traitor, a favorite of
Xerxes, yet a "Victor of Salamis" is a most attractive figure.
Cloth, $1.50.

Ghetto Comedies

"These tales are endowed with qualities of genuine pathos, abundant humor, dramatic
power, and a large and generous measure of human sympathy."-North American.
Cloth, $1.50.

Before Adam

"Such a weird, fascinating tale that one wonders where to begin to tell how beautiful it is
---how vitally interesting."-Denver Post.
Cloth, $1.50.

Family Secrets

A chronicle of semi-suburban life that will cause its readers (men or women) many a comprehending chuckle.

MISCELLANEOUS

Sappho and Phaon

Cloth, $1.25.

Mr. MacKaye's "Jeanne d' Arc" presented the unusual spectacle of a successful poetic
drama by an American author. This new play will, it is said, be presented in the fall with
Madame Kalich as Sappho.
Cloth, $1.25 net. By mail, $1.35.

Shakespeare, English Men of Letters

A convenient, very readable book in a notable series. It is meant for those who would
read easily, with comprehension, for personal pleasure, the works of the man "who has
said more about humanity than any other writer, and said it better."
Blue Cloth, 12mo, gilt top, 75 cents net; by mail, 85 cents.

The Birth of the Nation, Jamestown, 1607

An especially attractive book in which the story of the early settlers of Virginia is told with
that indescribably refreshing grace which gave to her "Recollections of Peace and War"
their peculiar charm.
Cloth, illustrated, 12mo, $1.75 net; by mail, $1.88 net.

Three Acres and Liberty

The book is a fascinating demonstration of how a man may combine the best of city and
country life in freedom and comfort, without overwork, heavy responsibility, or other than
very small capital.
Illustrated, cloth, 12mo, $1.75 net; by mail, $1.87 net.

The Book of Vegetables and Garden Herbs

An exceedingly practical handbook and planting table for the Vegetable Garden.
Cloth, 360 pages, illustrated, $1.75 net; by mail, $1.89 net.

The Common Bacterial Infections of the Digestive
Tract and the Intoxications Arising from Them

A most suggestive presentation of methods, some of them original, of gaining a truer con-
ception of certain bacterial processes operative in such acute diseases as cholera infantum,
dysentery and typhoid fever, and even more widely in the very common self-poisoning of
gastro-enteric origin which induces depression and the over-early onset of old age.
Cloth, 12mo, 360 pages, $1.50 net; by mail, $1.62 net.
