L. C. Page and Company's
Announcement of List of New Fiction.


Philip Winwood. (35th thousand.) A Sketch of the Domestic History of an American Captain in the War of Independence, embracing events that occurred between and during the years 1763 and 1785 in New York and London. Written by his Enemy in War, Herbert Russell, Lieutenant in the Loyalist Forces. Presented anew by Robert Neilson Stephens, author of "A Gentleman Player," "An Enemy to the King," etc.
With six full-page illustrations by E. W. D. Hamilton.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, 400 pages $1.50
"One of the most stirring and remarkable romances that has been published in a long while, and its episodes, incidents, and actions are as interesting and agreeable as they are vivid and dramatic.... The print, illustrations, binding, etc., are worthy of the tale, and the author and his publishers are to be congratulated on a literary work of fiction which is as wholesome as it is winsome, as fresh and artistic as it is interesting and entertaining from first to last paragraph."—Boston Times.

Breaking the Shackles. By Frank Barrett.
Author of "A Set of Rogues."
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, gilt top, 350 pages $1.50
"The story opens well, and maintains its excellence throughout.... The author's triumph is the greater in the unquestionable interest and novelty which he achieves. The pictures of prison life are most vivid, and the story of the escape most thrilling."—The Freeman's Journal, London.

The Progress of Pauline Kessler. By Frederic Carrel.
Author of "Adventures of John Johns."
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, gilt top, 350 pages $1.50
A novel that will be widely read and much discussed. A powerful sketch of an adventuress who has much of the Becky Sharpe in her. The story is crisply written and told with directness and insight into the ways of social and political life. The characters are strong types of the class to which they belong.

Ada Vernham, Actress. By Richard Marsh.
Author of "Frivolities," "Tom Ossington's Ghost," etc.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, gilt top, 300 pages $1.50
This is a new book by the author of "Frivolities," which was extremely well received last season. It deals with the inside life of the London stage, and is of absorbing interest.

The Wallet of Kai Lung. By Ernest Bramah.
This is the first book of a new writer, and is exceedingly well done. It deals with the fortunes of a Chinese professional story-teller, who meets with many surprising adventures. The style suggests somewhat the rich Oriental coloring of the Arabian Nights.

Edward Barry: South Sea Pearler. By Louis Becke.
Author of "By Reef and Palm," "Ridan, the Devil," etc.
With four full-page illustrations by H. C. Edwards.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, gilt top, 300 pages $1.50
An exceedingly interesting story of sea life and adventure, the scene of which is laid in the Lagoon Islands of the Pacific.
This is the first complete novel from the pen of Mr. Becke, and readers of his collections of short stories will quickly recognize that the author can write a novel that will grip the reader. Strong, and even tragic, as is his novel in the main, "Edward Barry" has a happy ending, and woman's love and devotion are strongly portrayed.

Unto the Heights of Simplicity. By Johannes Reimers.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, 300 pages $1.25
We take pleasure in introducing to the reading public a writer of unique charm and individuality. His style is notable for its quaint poetic idiom and subtle imaginative flavor. In the present story, he treats with strength and reticence of the relation of the sexes and the problem of marriage. Certain social abuses and false standards of morality are attacked with great vigor, yet the plot is so interesting for its own sake that the book gives no suspicion of being a problem novel. The descriptions of natural scenery are idyllic in their charm, and form a fitting background for the love story.

The Black Terror. A Romance of Russia. By John K. Leys.
With frontispiece by Victor A. Searles.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, 350 pages $1.50
A stirring tale of the present day, presenting in a new light the aims and objects of the Nihilists. The story is so vivid and true to life that it might easily be considered a history of political intrigue in Russia, disguised as a novel, while its startling incidents and strange dénouement would only confirm the old adage that "truth is stranger than fiction," and that great historical events may be traced to apparently insignificant causes. The hero of the story is a young Englishman, whose startling resemblance to the Czar is taken advantage of by the Nihilists for the furtherance of their plans.

The Baron's Sons. By Maurus Jokai.
Author of "Black Diamonds," "The Green Book," "Pretty Michal," etc. Translated by Percy F. Bicknell.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, with photogravure portrait of the author, 350 pages $1.50
An exceedingly interesting romance of the revolution of 1848, the scene of which is laid at the courts of St. Petersburg, Moscow, and Vienna, and in the armies of the Austrians and Hungarians. It follows the fortunes of three young Hungarian noblemen, whose careers are involved in the historical incidents of the time. The story is told with all of Jokai's dash and vigor, and is exceedingly interesting. This romance has been translated for us directly from the Hungarian, and never has been issued hitherto in English.

Slaves of Chance. By Ferrier Langworthy.
With five portraits of the heroines, from original drawings by Hiel.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, gilt top, 350 pages $1.50
As a study of some of the realities of London life, this novel is one of notable merit. The slaves of chance, and, it might be added, of temptation, are five pretty girls, the daughters of a pretty widow, whose means are scarcely sufficient, even living as they do, in a quiet way and in a quiet London street, to make both ends meet. Dealing, as he does, with many sides of London life, the writer sketches varied types of character, and his creations are cleverly defined. He tells an interesting tale with delicacy and in a fresh, attractive style.

Her Boston Experiences. By Margaret Allston (nom de plume).
With eighteen full-page illustrations from drawings by Frank O. Small, and from photographs taken especially for the book.
Small 12mo, cloth decorative, gilt top, 225 pages $1.25
A most interesting and vivacious tale, dealing with society life at the Hub, with perhaps a tinge of the flavor of Vagabondia. The story has appeared serially in The Ladies' Home Journal, where it was received with marked success. We are not as yet at liberty to give the true name of the author, who hides her identity under the pen name, Margaret Allston, but she is well known in literature.

Memory Street. By Martha Baker Dunn.
Author of "The Sleeping Beauty," etc.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, 300 pages $1.25
An exceedingly beautiful story, delineating New England life and character. The style and interest will compare favorably with the work of such writers as Mary E. Wilkins, Kate Douglas Wiggin, and Sarah Orne Jewett. The author has been a constant contributor to the leading magazines, and the interest of her previous work will assure welcome for her first novel.

Winefred. A Story of the Chalk Cliffs. By S. Baring Gould.
Author of "Mehala," etc.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, illustrated, 350 pages $1.50
A striking novel of English life in the eighteenth century by this well known writer. The scene is laid partly in rural Devonshire, and partly in aristocratic London circles.

At the Court of the King: Being Romances of France.
By G. Hembert Westley, editor of "For Love's Sweet Sake."
With a photogravure frontispiece from an original drawing.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, 300 pages $1.25
Despite the prophecies of some literary experts, the historical romance is still on the high tide of popular favor, as exemplified by many recent successes. We feel justified, consequently, in issuing these stirring romances of intrigue and adventure, love and war, at the Courts of the French Kings.

God's Rebel. By Hulbert Fuller.
Author of "Vivian of Virginia."
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, 375 pages $1.25
A powerful story of sociological questions. The scene is laid in Chicago, the hero being a professor in "Rockland University," whose protest against the unequal distribution of wealth and the wretched condition of workmen gains for him the enmity of the "Savior Oil Company," through whose influence he loses his position. His after career as a leader of laborers who are fighting to obtain their rights is described with great earnestness. The character drawing is vigorous and varied, and the romantic plot holds the interest throughout. The Albany Journal is right in pronouncing this novel "an unusually strong story." It can hardly fail to command an immense reading public.

A Georgian Actress. By Pauline Bradford Mackie.
Author of "Mademoiselle de Berny," "Ye Lyttle Salem Maide," etc.
With four full-page illustrations from drawings by E. W. D. Hamilton.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, gilt top, 300 pages $1.50
An interesting romance of the days of George III., dealing with the life and adventures of a fair and talented young play-actress, the scene of which is laid in England and America. The success of Miss Mackie's previous books will justify our prediction that a new volume will receive an instant welcome.

God—The King—My Brother. A Romance. By Mary F. Nixon.
Author of "With a Pessimist in Spain," "A Harp of Many Chords," etc.
With a frontispiece by H. C. Edwards.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, 300 pages $1.25
An historical tale, dealing with the romantic period of Edward the Black Prince. The scene is laid for the most part in the sunny land of Spain, during the reign of Pedro the Cruel—the ally in war of the Black Prince. The well-told story records the adventures of two young English knight-errants, twin brothers, whose family motto gives the title to the book. The Spanish maid, the heroine of the romance, is a delightful characterization, and the love story, with its surprising yet logical dénouement, is enthralling.

Punchinello. By Florence Stuart.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, gilt top, 325 pages $1.50
A love story of intense power and pathos. The hero is a hunch-back (Punchinello), who wins the love of a beautiful young girl. Her sudden death, due indirectly to his jealousy, and the discovery that she had never faltered in her love for him, combine to unbalance his mind. The poetic style relieves the sadness of the story, and the reader is impressed with the power and brilliancy of its conception, as well as with the beauty and grace of the execution.

The Golden Fleece. Translated from the French of Amédée Achard, author of "The Huguenot's Love," etc.
Illustrated by Victor A. Searles.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, illustrated, 450 pages $1.50
Amédée Achard was a contemporary writer of Dumas, and his romances are very similar to those of that great writer. "The Golden Fleece" compares favorably with "The Three Musketeers" and the other D'Artagnan romances. The story relates the adventures of a young Gascon gentleman, an officer in the army sent by Louis XIV. to assist the Austrians in repelling the Turkish Invasion under the celebrated Achmet Kiuperli.

The Good Ship York. By W. Clark Russell.
Author of "The Wreck of the Grosvenor," "A Sailor's Sweetheart," etc.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, illustrated, 350 pages $1.50
A romantic and exciting sea tale, equal to the best work of this famous writer, relating the momentous voyage of the clipper ship York, and the adventures that befell Julia Armstrong, a passenger, and George Hardy, the chief mate.
"Mr. Russell has no rival in the line of marine fiction."—Mail and Express.

Tom Ossington's Ghost. By Richard Marsh.
Author of "Frivolities," "Ada Vernham, Actress," etc. Illustrated by Harold Pifford.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, gilt top, 325 pages $1.50
"I read 'Tom Ossington's Ghost' the other night, and was afraid to go up-stairs in the dark after it."—Truth.
"An entrancing book, but people with weak nerves had better not read it at night."—To-day.
"Mr. Marsh has been inspired by an entirely original idea, and has worked it out with great ingenuity. We like the weird but not repulsive story better than anything he has ever done."—World.

The Glory and Sorrow of Norwich. By M. M. Blake.
Author of "The Blues and the Brigands," etc., etc., with twelve full-page illustrations.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, gilt top, 315 pages $1.50
The hero of this romance, Sir John de Reppes, is an actual personage, and throughout the characters and incidents are instinct with the spirit of the age, as related in the chronicles of Froissart. Its main claim for attention, however, is in the graphic representation of the age of chivalry which it gives, forming a series of brilliant and fascinating pictures of mediæval England, its habits of thought and manner of life, which live in the mind for many a day after perusal, and assist to a clearer conception of what is one of the most charming and picturesque epochs of history.

The Mistress of Maidenwood. By Hulbert Fuller.
Author of "Vivian of Virginia," "God's Rebel," etc.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, 350 pages $1.50
A stirring historical romance of the American Revolution, the scene of which for the most part being laid in and about the debatable ground in the vicinity of New York City.

Dauntless. A Tale of a Lost Cause. By Captain Ewan Martin.
Author of "The Knight of King's Guard."
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, 400 pages, illustrated $1.50
A stirring romance of the days of Charles I. and Cromwell in England and Ireland. In its general character the book invites comparison with Scott's "Waverley." It well sustains the reputation gained by Captain Martin from "The Knight of King's Guard."

The Flame of Life. (Il Fuoco.) Translated from the Italian of Gabriel D'Annunzio, author of "Triumph of Death," etc., by Kassandra Vivaria, author of "Via Lucis."
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, 350 pages $1.50
This is the first volume in the Third Trilogy, "The Romances of the Pomegranate," of the three announced by the great Italian writer. We were fortunate in securing the book, and also in securing the services as translator of the talented author of "Via Lucis," herself an Italian by birth.

With portrait of the author.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, 480 pages $1.50
"'Via Lucis' is—we say it unhesitatingly—a striking and interesting production."—London Athenæum.
"Without doubt the most notable novel of the summer is this strong story of Italian life, so full of local color one can almost see the cool, shaded patios and the flame of the pomegranate blossom, and smell the perfume of the grapes growing on the hillsides. It is a story of deep and passionate heart interests, of fierce loves and fiercer hates, of undisciplined natures that work out their own bitter destiny of woe. There has hardly been a finer piece of portraiture than that of the child Arduina,—the child of a sickly and unloved mother and a cruel and vindictive father,—a morbid, queer, lonely little creature, who is left to grow up without love or training of any kind."—New Orleans Picayune.

"A recital of thrilling interest, told with unflagging vigor."—Globe.
"An unusually excellent example of a semi-historic romance."—World.

The River of Pearls; or, The Red Spider. A Chinese Romance. By René de Pont-Jest.
With sixty illustrations from original drawings by Felix Régamey.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, 300 pages $1.50
Close acquaintance with the manners and customs of the Chinese has enabled the author to write a story which is instructive as well as interesting. The book, as a whole, shows the writer to be possessed of a strong descriptive faculty, as well as keen insight into the characters of the people of whom he is writing. The plot is cleverly conceived and well worked out, and the story abounds with incidents of the most exciting and sensational character. Enjoyment of its perusal is increased by the powerful illustrations of Felix Régamey.
The book may be read with profit by any one who wishes to realize the actual condition of native life in China.

The scene of this romance is partly at the siege of Crimona (held by the troops of Louis XIV.) by the Austrian forces under Prince Eugene.

He is also able to give efficient service in unravelling a political intrigue, in which the love affairs of the hero and the heroine are interwoven.

Frivolities. Especially Addressed to those who are Tired of being Serious. By Richard Marsh.
Author of "Tom Ossington's Ghost," etc.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, 340 pages $1.50
A dozen stories in an entirely new vein for Mr. Marsh. The humor is irresistible, and carries the reader on breathlessly from one laugh to another. The style, though appealing to a totally different side of complex human nature, is as strong and effective as the author's intense and dramatic work in "Tom Ossington's Ghost."

Sons Of Adversity. A Romance of Queen Elizabeth's Time. By L. Cope Cornford.
Author of "Captain Jacobus," etc.
Illustrated by J. W. Kennedy.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, 325 pages $1.25
"A tale of adventure on land and sea at the time when Protestant England and Catholic Spain were struggling for naval supremacy. Spanish conspiracies against the peace of good Queen Bess, a vivid description of the raise of the Spanish siege of Leyden by the combined Dutch and English forces, sea fights, the recovery of stolen treasure, are all skilfully woven elements in a plot of unusual strength."—Pittsburg Bulletin.

The Count of Nideck. From the French of Erckmann-Chatrian, Translated and Adapted by Ralph Browning Fiske.
Illustrated by Victor A. Searles.
Library 12mo, cloth decorative, 375 pages $1.25

The Works of Gabriel d'Annunzio.
The Triumph of Death.
The Intruder.
The Maidens of the Rocks.
The Child of Pleasure.
Each, 1 vol., library 12mo, cloth decorative $1.50
"The writer of the greatest promise to-day in Italy, and perhaps one of the most unique figures in contemporary literature, is Gabriel d'Annunzio, the poet-novelist."—The Bookman.
"This book is realistic. Some say that it is brutally so. But the realism is that of Flaubert and not of Zola. There is no plain speaking for the sake of plain speaking. Every detail is justified in the fact that it illuminates either the motives or the actions of the man and woman who here stand revealed. It is deadly true. The author holds the mirror up to nature, and the reader, as he sees his own experiences duplicated in passage after passage, has something of the same sensation as all of us know on the first reading of George Meredith's 'Egoist.' Reading these pages is like being out in the country on a dark night in a storm. Suddenly a flash of lightning comes and every detail of your surroundings is revealed."—Review of the Triumph of Death, in the New York Evening Sun.

Ye Lyttle Salem Maide. A Story of Witchcraft. By Pauline Bradford Mackie.
With four full-page photogravures from drawings by E. W. D. Hamilton.
Printed on deckle-edged paper, with gilt top, and bound in cloth decorative, 321 pages $1.50
A tale of the days of the reign of superstition in New England, and of a brave "lyttle maide" of Salem Town, whose faith and hope and unyielding adherence to her word of honor form the basis of a most attractive story. Several historical characters are introduced, including the Rev. Cotton Mather and Governor and Lady Phipps, and a very convincing picture is drawn of Puritan life during the latter part of the seventeenth century. An especial interest is added to the book by the illustrations, reproduced by the photogravure process from originals by E. W. D. Hamilton.

In Guiana Wilds. A Study of Two Women. By James Rodway.
Author of "In the Guiana Forest," etc.
Library 12mo, cloth, decorative, illustrated, 250 pages $1.25

It is a psychological study of great power and ability.

The Gray House of the Quarries. By Mary Harriott Norris.
With a frontispiece etching by Edmund H. Garrett.
8vo, cloth decorative, 500 pages $1.50
"The peculiar genre, for which, in a literary sense, all must acknowledge obligation to the author of a new type, is the Dutch-American species. The church-goings, the courtings, the pleasures and sorrows of a primitive people, their lives and deaths, weddings, suicides, births, and burials, are Rembrandt and Rubens pictures on a fresh canvas."—Boston Transcript.
"The fine ideal of womanhood in a person never once physically described will gratify the highest tone of the period, and is an ennobling conception."—Time and the Hour, Boston.

Vivian of Virginia. Being the Memoirs of Our First Rebellion, by John Vivian, Esq., of Middle Plantation, Virginia. By Hulbert Fuller.

"Mr. Fuller will find a large circle of readers for his romance who will not be disappointed in their pleasant expectations."—Boston Transcript.
"Instead of using history as a background for the exploits of the hero, the author used the hero to bring out history and the interesting events of those early days in Virginia. The author has preserved the language and customs of the times admirably."—Philadelphia Telegram.

A Hypocritical Romance and Other Stories. By Caroline Ticknor.
Illustrated by J. W. Kennedy.

Miss Ticknor, well known as one of the most promising of the younger school of American writers, has never done better work than in the majority of these clever stories, written in a delightful comedy vein.

A Mad Madonna and Other Stories. By L. Clarkson Whitelock.
With eight half-tone illustrations.
1 vol., large 16mo, cloth decorative $1.00
A half dozen remarkable psychological stories, delicate in color and conception. Each of the six has a touch of the supernatural, a quick suggestion, a vivid intensity, and a dreamy realism that is matchless in its forceful execution.

On the Point. A Summer Idyl. By Nathan Haskell Dole.
Author of "Not Angels Quite," with dainty half-tone illustrations as chapter headings.
1 vol., large 16mo, cloth decorative $1.00
A bright and clever story of a summer on the coast of Maine, fresh, breezy, and readable from the first to the last page. The narrative describes the summer outing of a Mr. Merrithew and his family. The characters are all honest, pleasant people, whom we are glad to know. We part from them with the same regret with which we leave a congenial party of friends.

Cyrano de Bergerac. A Heroic Comedy from the French of Edward Rostand, as Accepted and Played by Richard Mansfield. Translated by Howard Thayer Kingsbury.
1 vol., cloth decorative, with a photogravure frontispiece $1.00
1 vol., paper boards .50
The immediate and prolonged success of "Cyrano de Bergerac," in Paris, has been paralleled by Mr. Mansfield's success with an English version, dating from its first night at the Garden Theatre, New York, October 3, 1898.
As a literary work, the original form of Rostand took high rank; and the preference of Mr. Mansfield for Mr. Kingsbury's new translation implies its superior merit.

BY POPULAR WRITERS.
97-99-101 Reade Street, New York.

Bonnie Prince Charlie: A Tale of Fontenoy and Culloden. By G. A. Henty. With 12 full-page Illustrations by Gordon Browne. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

The adventures of the son of a Scotch officer in French service. The boy, brought up by a Glasgow bailie, is arrested for aiding a Jacobite agent, escapes, is wrecked on the French coast, reaches Paris, and serves with the French army at Dettingen. He kills his father's foe in a duel, and escaping to the coast, shares the adventures of Prince Charlie, but finally settles happily in Scotland.

"Ronald, the hero, is very like the hero of 'Quentin Durward.' The lad's journey across France, and his hairbreadth escapes, make up as good a narrative of the kind as we have ever read. For freshness of treatment and variety of incident Mr. Henty has surpassed himself."—Spectator.

With Clive in India; or, the Beginnings of an Empire. By G. A. Henty. With 12 full-page Illustrations by Gordon Browne. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

The period between the landing of Clive as a young writer in India and the close of his career was critical and eventful in the extreme. At its commencement the English were traders existing on sufferance of the native princes. At its close they were masters of Bengal and of the greater part of Southern India. The author has given a full and accurate account of the events of that stirring time, and battles and sieges follow each other in rapid succession, while he combines with his narrative a tale of daring and adventure, which gives a lifelike interest to the volume.

"He has taken a period of Indian history of the most vital importance, and he has embroidered on the historical facts a story which of itself is deeply interesting. Young people assuredly will be delighted with the volume."—Scotsman.

The Lion of the North: A Tale of Gustavus Adolphus and the Wars of Religion. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by John Schönberg. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

In this story Mr. Henty gives the history of the first part of the Thirty Years' War. The issue had its importance, which has extended to the present day, as it established religious freedom in Germany. The army of the chivalrous king of Sweden was largely composed of Scotchmen, and among these was the hero of the story.

"The tale is a clever and instructive piece of history and as boys may be trusted to read it conscientiously, they can hardly fail to be profited."—Times.

The Dragon and the Raven; or, The Days of King Alfred. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by C. J. Staniland, R.I. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

In this story the author gives an account of the fierce struggle between Saxon and Dane for supremacy in England, and presents a vivid picture of the misery and ruin to which the country was reduced by the ravages of the sea-wolves. The hero, a young Saxon thane, takes part in all the battles fought by King Alfred. He is driven from his home, takes to the sea and resists the Danes on their own element, and being pursued by them up the Seine, is present at the long and desperate siege of Paris.

"Treated in a manner most attractive to the boyish reader."—Athenæum.

The Young Carthaginian: A Story of the Times of Hannibal. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by C. J. Staniland, R.I. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

Boys reading the history of the Punic Wars have seldom a keen appreciation of the merits of the contest. That it was at first a struggle for empire, and afterward for existence on the part of Carthage, that Hannibal was a great and skillful general, that he defeated the Romans at Trebia, Lake Trasimenus, and Cannæ, and all but took Rome, represents pretty nearly the sum total of their knowledge. To let them know more about this momentous struggle for the empire of the world Mr. Henty has written this story, which not only gives in graphic style a brilliant description of a most interesting period of history, but is a tale of exciting adventure sure to secure the interest of the reader.

"Well constructed and vividly told. From first to last nothing stays the interest of the narrative. It bears us along as on a stream whose current varies in direction, but never loses its force."—Saturday Review.

In Freedom's Cause: A Story of Wallace and Bruce. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by Gordon Browne. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

In this story the author relates the stirring tale of the Scottish War of Independence. The extraordinary valor and personal prowess of Wallace and Bruce rival the deeds of the mythical heroes of chivalry, and indeed at one time Wallace was ranked with these legendary personages. The researches of modern historians have shown, however, that he was a living, breathing man—and a valiant champion. The hero of the tale fought under both Wallace and Bruce, and while the strictest historical accuracy has been maintained with respect to public events, the work is full of "hairbreadth 'scapes" and wild adventure.

"It is written in the author's best style. Full of the wildest and most remarkable achievements, it is a tale of great interest, which a boy, once he has begun it, will not willingly put on one side."—The Schoolmaster.

With Lee in Virginia: A Story of the American Civil War. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by Gordon Browne. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

The story of a young Virginian planter, who, after bravely proving his sympathy with the slaves of brutal masters, serves with no less courage and enthusiasm under Lee and Jackson through the most exciting events of the struggle. He has many hairbreadth escapes, is several times wounded and twice taken prisoner; but his courage and readiness and, in two cases, the devotion of a black servant and of a runaway slave whom he had assisted, bring him safely through all difficulties.

"One of the best stories for lads which Mr. Henty has yet written. The picture is full of life and color, and the stirring and romantic incidents are skillfully blended with the personal interest and charm of the story."—Standard.

By England's Aid; or, The Freeing of the Netherlands (1585-1604). By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by Alfred Pearse, and Maps. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

The story of two English lads who go to Holland as pages in the service of one of "the fighting Veres." After many adventures by sea and land, one of the lads finds himself on board a Spanish ship at the time of the defeat of the Armada, and escapes only to fall into the hands of the Corsairs. He is successful in getting back to Spain under the protection of a wealthy merchant, and regains his native country after the capture of Cadiz.

"It is an admirable book for youngsters. It overflows with stirring incident and exciting adventure, and the color of the era and of the scene are finely reproduced. The illustrations add to its attractiveness."—Boston Gazette.

By Right of Conquest; or, With Cortez in Mexico. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by W. S. Stacey, and Two Maps. 12mo, cloth, price $1.50.

The conquest of Mexico by a small band of resolute men under the magnificent leadership of Cortez is always rightly ranked among the most romantic and daring exploits in history. With this as the ground work of his story Mr. Henty has interwoven the adventures of an English youth, Roger Hawkshaw, the sole survivor of the good ship Swan, which had sailed from a Devon port to challenge the mercantile supremacy of the Spaniards in the New World. He is beset by many perils among the natives, but is saved by his own judgment and strength, and by the devotion of an Aztec princess. At last by a ruse he obtains the protection of the Spaniards, and after the fall of Mexico he succeeds in regaining his native shore, with a fortune and a charming Aztec bride.

"'By Right of Conquest' is the nearest approach to a perfectly successful historical tale that Mr. Henty has yet published."—Academy.

In the Reign of Terror: The Adventures of a Westminster Boy. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by J. Schönberg. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

Harry Sandwith, a Westminster boy, becomes a resident at the chateau of a French marquis, and after various adventures accompanies the family to Paris at the crisis of the Revolution. Imprisonment and death reduce their number, and the hero finds himself beset by perils with the three young daughters of the house in his charge. After hairbreadth escapes they reach Nantes. There the girls are condemned to death in the coffin-ships, but are saved by the unfailing courage of their boy protector.

"Harry Sandwith, the Westminster boy, may fairly be said to beat Mr. Henty's record. His adventures will delight boys by the audacity and peril they depict.... The story is one of Mr. Henty's best."—Saturday Review.

With Wolfe in Canada; or, The Winning of a Continent. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by Gordon Browne. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

In the present volume Mr. Henty gives an account of the struggle between Britain and France for supremacy in the North American continent. On the issue of this war depended not only the destinies of North America, but to a large extent those of the mother countries themselves. The fall of Quebec decided that the Anglo-Saxon race should predominate in the New World; that Britain, and not France, should take the lead among the nations of Europe; and that English and American commerce, the English language, and English literature, should spread right round the globe.

"It is not only a lesson in history as instructively as it is graphically told, but also a deeply interesting and often thrilling tale of adventure and peril by flood and field."—Illustrated London News.

True to the Old Flag: A Tale of the American War of Independence. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by Gordon Browne. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

In this story the author has gone to the accounts of officers who took part in the conflict, and lads will find that in no war in which American and British soldiers have been engaged did they behave with greater courage and good conduct. The historical portion of the book being accompanied with numerous thrilling adventures with the redskins on the shores of Lake Huron, a story of exciting interest is interwoven with the general narrative and carried through the book.

"Does justice to the pluck and determination of the British soldiers during the unfortunate struggle against American emancipation. The son of an American loyalist, who remains true to our flag, falls among the hostile redskins in that very Huron country which has been endeared to us by the exploits of Hawkeye and Chingachgook."—The Times.

The Lion of St. Mark: A Tale of Venice in the Fourteenth Century. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by Gordon Browne. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

A story of Venice at a period when her strength and splendor were put to the severest tests. The hero displays a fine sense and manliness which carry him safely through an atmosphere of intrigue, crime, and bloodshed. He contributes largely to the victories of the Venetians at Porto d'Anzo and Chioggia, and finally wins the hand of the daughter of one of the chief men of Venice.

"Every boy should read 'The Lion of St. Mark.' Mr. Henty has never produced a story more delightful, more wholesome, or more vivacious."—Saturday Review.

A Final Reckoning: A Tale of Bush Life in Australia. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by W. B. Wollen. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

The hero, a young English lad, after rather a stormy boyhood, emigrates to Australia, and gets employment as an officer in the mounted police. A few years of active work on the frontier, where he has many a brush with both natives and bushrangers, gain him promotion to a captaincy, and he eventually settles down to the peaceful life of a squatter.

"Mr. Henty has never published a more readable, a more carefully constructed, or a better written story than this."—Spectator.

Under Drake's Flag: A Tale of the Spanish Main. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by Gordon Browne. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

A story of the days when England and Spain struggled for supremacy of the sea. The heroes sail as lads with Drake in the Pacific expedition, and in his great voyage of circumnavigation. The historical portion of the story is absolutely to be relied upon, but this will perhaps be less attractive than the great variety of exciting adventure through which the young heroes pass course of their voyages.

"A book of adventure, where the hero meets with experience enough, one would think, to turn his hair gray."—Harper's Monthly Magazine.

By Sheer Pluck: A Tale of the Ashanti War. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by Gordon Browne. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

The author has woven, in a tale of thrilling interest, all the details of the Ashanti campaign, of which he was himself a witness. His hero, after many exciting adventures in the interior, is detained a prisoner by the king just before the outbreak of the war, but escapes, and accompanies the English expedition on their march to Coomassie.

"Mr. Henty keeps up his reputation as a writer of boys' stories. 'By Sheer Pluck' will be eagerly read."—Athenæum.

By Pike and Dyke: A Tale of the Rise of the Dutch Republic. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by Maynard Brown, and 4 Maps. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

In this story Mr. Henty traces the adventures and brave deeds of an English boy in the household of the ablest man of his age—William the Silent. Edward Martin, the son of an English sea-captain, enters the service of the Prince as a volunteer, and is employed by him in many dangerous and responsible missions, in the discharge of which he passes through the great sieges of the time. He ultimately settles down as Sir Edward Martin.

"Boys with a turn for historical research will be enchanted with the book while the rest who only care for adventure will be students in spite of themselves."—St. James' Gazette.

St. George for England: A Tale of Cressy and Poitiers. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by Gordon Browne. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

No portion of English history is more crowded with great events than that of the reign of Edward III. Cressy and Poitiers; the destruction of the Spanish fleet; the plague of the Black Death; the Jacquerie rising; these are treated by the author in "St. George for England." The hero of the story, although of good family, begins life as a London apprentice, but after countless adventures and perils becomes by valor and good conduct the squire, and at last the trusted friend of the Black Prince.

"Mr. Henty has developed for himself a type of historical novel for boys which bids fair to supplement, on their behalf, the historical labors of Sir Walter Scott in the land of fiction."—The Standard.

Captain Kidd's Gold: The True Story of an Adventurous Sailor Boy. By James Franklin Fitts. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

There is something fascinating to the average youth in the very idea of buried treasure. A vision arises before his eyes of swarthy Portuguese and Spanish rascals, with black beards and gleaming eyes—sinister-looking fellows who once on a time haunted the Spanish Main, sneaking out from some hidden creek in their long, low schooner, of picaroonish rake and sheer, to attack an unsuspecting trading craft. There were many famous sea rovers in their day, but none more celebrated than Capt. Kidd. Perhaps the most fascinating tale of all is Mr. Fitts' true story of an adventurous American boy, who receives from his dying father an ancient bit of vellum, which the latter obtained in a curious way. The document bears obscure directions purporting to locate a certain island in the Bahama group, and a considerable treasure buried there by two of Kidd's crew. The hero of this book, Paul Jones Garry, is an ambitious, persevering lad, of salt-water New England ancestry, and his efforts to reach the island and secure the money form one of the most absorbing tales for our youth that has come from the press.

Captain Bayley's Heir: A Tale of the Gold Fields of California. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by H. M. Paget. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

A frank, manly lad and his cousin are rivals in the heirship of a considerable property. The former falls into a trap laid by the latter, and while under a false accusation of theft foolishly leaves England for America. He works his passage before the mast, joins a small band of hunters, crosses a tract of country infested with Indians to the Californian gold diggings, and is successful both as digger and trader.

"Mr. Henty is careful to mingle instruction with entertainment; and the humorous touches, especially in the sketch of John Holl, the Westminster dustman, Dickens himself could hardly have excelled."—Christian Leader.

For Name and Fame; or, Through Afghan Passes. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by Gordon Browne. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

An interesting story of the last war in Afghanistan. The hero, after being wrecked and going through many stirring adventures among the Malays, finds his way to Calcutta and enlists in a regiment proceeding to join the army at the Afghan passes. He accompanies the force under General Roberts to the Peiwar Kotal, is wounded, taken prisoner, carried to Cabul, whence he is transferred to Candahar, and takes part in the final defeat of the army of Ayoub Khan.

"The best feature of the book—apart from the interest of its scenes of adventure—is its honest effort to do justice to the patriotism of the Afghan people."—Daily News.

Captured by Apes: The Wonderful Adventures of a Young Animal Trainer. By Harry Prentice. 12mo, cloth, $1.00.

The scene of this tale is laid on an island in the Malay Archipelago. Philip Garland, a young animal collector and trainer, of New York, sets sail for Eastern seas in quest of a new stock of living curiosities. The vessel is wrecked off the coast of Borneo and young Garland, the sole survivor of the disaster, is cast ashore on a small island, and captured by the apes that overrun the place. The lad discovers that the ruling spirit of the monkey tribe is a gigantic and vicious baboon, whom he identifies as Goliah, an animal at one time in his possession and with whose instruction he had been especially diligent. The brute recognizes him, and with a kind of malignant satisfaction puts his former master through the same course of training he had himself experienced with a faithfulness of detail which shows how astonishing is monkey recollection. Very novel indeed is the way by which the young man escapes death. Mr. Prentice has certainly worked a new vein on juvenile fiction, and the ability with which he handles a difficult subject stamps him as a writer of undoubted skill.

The Bravest of the Brave; or, With Peterborough in Spain. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations by H. M. Paget. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

There are few great leaders whose lives and actions have so completely fallen into oblivion as those of the Earl of Peterborough. This is largely due to the fact that they were overshadowed by the glory and successes of Marlborough. His career as general extended over little more than a year, and yet, in that time, he showed a genius for warfare which has never been surpassed.

"Mr. Henty never loses sight of the moral purpose of his work—to enforce the doctrine of courage and truth. Lads will read 'The Bravest of the Brave' with pleasure and profit; of that we are quite sure."—Daily Telegraph.

The Cat of Bubastes: A Story of Ancient Egypt. By G. A. Henty. With full-page Illustrations. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

A story which will give young readers an unsurpassed insight into the customs of the Egyptian people. Amuba, a prince of the Rebu nation, is carried with his charioteer Jethro into slavery. They become inmates of the house of Ameres, the Egyptian high-priest, and are happy in his service until the priest's son accidentally kills the sacred cat of Bubastes. In an outburst of popular fury Ameres is killed, and it rests with Jethro and Amuba to secure the escape of the high-priest's son and daughter.

"The story, from the critical moment of the killing of the sacred cat to the perilous exodus into Asia with which it closes, is very skillfully constructed and full of exciting adventures. It is admirably illustrated."—Saturday Review.

With Washington at Monmouth: A Story of Three Philadelphia Boys. By James Otis. 12mo, cloth, price $1.00.

Three Philadelphia boys, Seth Graydon "whose mother conducted a boarding-house which was patronized by the British officers;" Enoch Ball, "son of that Mrs. Ball whose dancing school was situated on Letitia Street," and little Jacob, son of "Chris, the Baker," serve as the principal characters. The story is laid during the winter when Lord Howe held possession of the city, and the lads aid the cause by assisting the American spies who make regular and frequent visits from Valley Forge. One reads here of home-life in the captive city when bread was scarce among the people of the lower classes, and a reckless prodigality shown by the British officers, who passed the winter in feasting and merry-making while the members of the patriot army but a few miles away were suffering from both cold and hunger. The story abounds with pictures of Colonial life skillfully drawn, and the glimpses of Washington's soldiers which are given show that the work has not been hastily done, or without considerable study.

POPULAR SCIENCE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
By CHARLES R. GIBSON, F.R.S.E.

"Among writers for boys on science, easily the most skilful is Mr. Charles Gibson. He writes so clearly, simply and charmingly about the most difficult things that his books are quite as entertaining as any ordinary book of adventure. Mr. Gibson has a first-rate scientific mind and considerable scientific attainments. He is never guilty of an inexact phrase—certainly, never an obscure one—or a misleading analogy. We could imagine him having a vogue among our young folk comparable with that of Jules Verne."—The Nation.

"Mr. Gibson has fairly made his mark as a populariser of scientific knowledge."—Guardian.

STUDIES IN SOLITARY LIFE. By W. R. Titterton.

This volume is a collection of some of the best studies of Mr. W. R. Titterton, one of the most brilliant journalists of the Modern School, whose volume "Love Poems" has been one of the successes of the publishing season.

"Studies in Solitary Life" is not a collection of stories with plots, but rather true life studies and character sketches of unattractive people from the worldly standpoint.

Tramps, beggar-children, ledger-clerks, bohemian town-dwellers and all lonely people claim the author's sympathy, and his virile pen presents their surroundings and emotions so powerfully and realistically that the reader at once feels personally acquainted with the characters portrayed. When the reader has finished the book, he will find that he has been listening to a startling indictment and a triumphal justification of Life.

LOVE POEMS, By W. R. Titterton.

"Sincere, but somewhat realistic ... a good many deal with the misery of base passion and lost women."—The Times.

"His pen is a whip that cuts to the bone of life. He is restrained by no conventions."—The Daily News.

"The author deals sympathetically with love themes seldom touched on except in poetry more or less pagan in outlook."—The Glasgow Herald.
A Second Edition in now in the Press

NEW TRUTHS FOR OLD. By Robb Lawson.

These Essays represent the thought of a converted Philistine endeavouring to free himself from the slavery of conventional ideas, and to find that justice which is "love with seeing eyes."

They deal with the following subjects:—

The Decay of Individuality.
The Futility of Speech.
Plain Writing.
The Failure of Success.
The Temptations of Enthusiasm.
Of the Sorrow of Wisdom.
Combativeness.
The Worth of Attitude.
On Second-Hand Minds.
The Use of Enemies.
On Reading Great Lives.
Woman.
On Self-Sacrifice.
Discipline.

BALLAD OF A GREAT CITY. By David Lowe.

A charming volume of metrical comedies, ballads, and lyrics. Glasgow is referred to in the title ballad, many of the rest are steeped in traditional lore, and the two comedies are metrical versions of old Scots folk-tales.

"There are in the book many charming lyrical poems which ... show always the sentiment of a latter-day singer playing sweetly and gracefully round the sempiternal themes of poetry. The two Comedies are clever, simple, and fresh. The book will be read with especial interest by lovers of Poetry who favour Scottish themes."—The Scotsman.

"The author has talent; his work flows easily and 'lets itself be read.'"—The Birmingham Post.

"... A good deal in the vein of Burns. The author is a pleasant versifier."—The Times.

"The poems show distinct lyrical faculty. The author's management of various metres is throughout true and musical."—Aberdeen Daily Journal.

"These poems treat of the common interests of daily life ... appeal to a wide audience, and are sure to give widespread pleasure."—Aberdeen Free Press.

By the Same Author
GIFT OF THE NIGHT (Poems).


"Interesting to a serious lover of poetry."—The Scotsman.

A MAN OF LEISURE (Play).

"Rich in touches of poetic feeling and with witty and humorous sayings."—Glasgow Herald.

BURNS'S PASSIONATE PILGRIMAGE.
(A few copies left of large paper edition, price 5s. net.)

"Well worth writing and is well written."—The Times.

SONNETS OF SWEET SORROW.

"They carry with them something heroic and tonic."—Glasgow Herald.

THE SANITY OF ART: An Exposure of the current nonsense about artists being degenerate. By G. Bernard Shaw.

"A scathing indictment of Max Nordau's 'Degeneration.' Mr. Shaw's book should prove wholesome reading for the section of cranks who, like Nordau, shower abuse upon everything that departs from conventional standards."—The Daily Mail.

"We confess that the perusal of so adroit an exercise in special pleading is thoroughly calculated to give pleasure to all admirers of ready wit and swift, felicitous phrasing ... packed with good argument, admirably employed and wielded."—The Daily Telegraph.

"Quite a remarkable feat of literary fencing.... The 'Exposure' itself is not only valuable as a compendium of Shawesque first principles in philosophy and ethics, but also as a workable survey of the Arts."—M.A.P.

THE ENDOWMENT OF MOTHERHOOD. By Dr. M. D. Eder.

In this book an analysis is made of the present social conditions from the medical side.

A consideration that it is desirable to encourage the production of healthy children, and to repress the breeding of unhealthy children, leads the author to the conclusion that only by making mothers free to select their partners and economically independent of these partners, is any advance possible.

He points out how inadequate is the help which is afforded to maternity and presents a plan for the State Endowment of Motherhood, which would, at the same time, not remove the children from their mother's care. He further gives a summary of all the measures already undertaken for the purpose of making maternity easier.

THE COTTAGE HOMES OF ENGLAND. By W. Walter Crotch. With an Introduction by G. K. Chesterton. Third Edition, revised and enlarged.

"A scathing and nearly heart-breaking disclosure and condemnation of the scandalous condition of the cottage property of rural districts. The Housing Acts graphically and caustically exposed."—The Manchester City News.

"A really useful book.... It deals with the housing problem in a plain, straightforward, practical fashion."—The Pall Mall Gazette.

"We welcome it as a contribution of value to an important question."—The Spectator.

THE DANCING FAUN: A Novel. By Florence Farr. Cheap Re-issue. With cover design by Aubrey Beardsley.

A PROFESSIONAL SOCIALIST: A Play in Five Acts. By Erica Cotterill.

"Well constructed and brightly written."—Scotsman.

"Merit resides in the clearness with which the characters are thrown, as it were, upon the screen.... They are familiar types. We admire the freedom as well as the skill with which the author has sketched the eccentricities of the comrades."—The Sheffield Independent.

"All the characters are finely drawn and are full of significance. The author is to be congratulated upon her insight, message, and dramatic instinct."—The Christian Commonwealth.

"The dialogue ... is bright and sparkling ... there is a great deal that is clever and amusing in the play."—The Glasgow Evening News.

"Miss Cotterill's play betrays the Shawian influence.... It is an entertaining play."—Justice.

WOMAN: Her Position To-day. By Constance Smedley, Author of "The Conflict," "The Daughters," &c. With an Appendix "WOMAN AND THE STATE," by Mrs. Philip Snowden.

"As a vindication of the women's enfranchisement demand, this popular, clever, lively book is worth reading."—The Christian Commonwealth.

"A sprightly little volume which puts forward many forceful and convincing arguments."—The Clarion.

"A notable contribution to the literature of the suffragette movement."—The Dundee Advertiser.

"That the author is Miss Smedley accounts for the liveliness or trenchancy of the writing.... Well worth listening to."—Glasgow Evening News.

THE COMMON-SENSE OF THE WOMAN QUESTION. By Millicent Murby.

One of the most sensible and best-written books on the Woman Question.

The book deals frankly with this problem as it appeals to both men and women. Particular attention is given to the specific functions of the two sexes, and the social part played by each, showing that the recognition of women's political responsibility is essential to race-progress.

THE LAST GENERATION: A Story of the Future. By J. E. Flecker.
http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/32769
A Thrilling Story. The author is a grim disciple of Mr. H. G. Wells at his grimmest; he gives a series of vivid snapshots portraying the events which lead to the final extinction of the race of man.
Paper, 6d. net.

THE MYSTERY OF TIME: A Masque. By Florence Farr.

A PRIEST TO THE TEMPLE. By George Herbert. (First printed in 1652.)

FREELAND: A Social Anticipation. By Dr. Theodor Hertyka. Originally published at 6s., but having secured the remainder of the edition we are selling copies at 3s. each.
http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/9866
"Shows how Capitalism stops the growth of wealth, and presents us to a working model of Society on a basis of economic justice. A valuable book for students of economics."

Thanks angelique :thumbs:

For supernatural stories, kadath has compiled a master post here viewtopic.php?f=1&t=58271
You can choose a short story for the short ghost and horror story collection, or a book to read as solo.

We have also a few group projects underway, marked conveniently with [horror], or something like that :D

Thank you so much, Carolin.
Ohhh, I'm digging my way through tons and tomes of wonderful offerings here. *Smile* This clue to link is especially appreciated. I had saved it, but could not find it; now I have it saved in a handy dandy document with full links, so it will be instrumental in my wandering and seeking and discovering and recording the perfect little story.
Much Appreciation!
