THE INTERNATIONAL STUDIO =John Lane=, 140 Fifth Avenue, New York

Scribner's New Books for the Young

=Mrs. Burnett's famous Juveniles=

=With all the original Illustrations by Reginald B. Birch. 5 vols. Each 12mo $1.25.=

A writer in the Boston Post has said of Mrs. Burnett: "She has a beauty of imagination and a spiritual insight into the meditations of childhood which are within the grasp of no other writer for children," and these five volumes would indeed be difficult to match in child literature. The new edition is from new plates, with all the original illustrations by Reginald B. Birch, is bound in a handsome new cover. "Little Lord Fauntleroy," "Two Little Pilgrims' Progress," "Piccino and Other Child Stories," "Giovanni and the Other," "Sara Crewe," and "Little Saint Elizabeth and other Stories" (in one volume).

=Three New Volumes by G. A. Henty=

=Illustrated by Walter Paget and W. A. Margetson. Each 12mo $1.50=.

It would be a bitter year for the boys if Mr. Henty were to fail them with a fresh assortment of his enthralling tales of adventure, for, as the London Academy has said, in this kind of story telling, "he stands in the very first rank." "With Frederick the Great" is a tale of the Seven Years' War, and has twelve full page illustrations by Wal. Paget; "A March on London" details some stirring scenes of the times when Wat Tyler's motley crew took possession of that city, and the illustrations are drawn by W. A. Margetson, while Wal. Paget has supplied the pictures for "With Moore at Corunna," in which the boy hero serves through the Peninsular War. (Each 12mo, $1.50.)

=Will Shakespeare's Little Lad by Imogen Clarke=

=With 8 full page Illustrations by Reginald B. Birch. 12mo $1.50.=

"The author has caught the true spirit of Shakespeare's time, and paints his home surroundings with a loving, tender grace," says the Boston Herald .

=An Old Field School Girl by Marion Harland=

(Illustrated, 12mo, $1.25.) "As pretty a story for girls as has been published in a long time," says the Buffalo Express , and the Chicago Tribune is even more appreciative: "Compared with the average books of its class 'An Old Field School Girl,' becomes a classic."

=Lullaby Land=

=Verses by Eugene Field With 200 fanciful Illustrations by Charles Robinson. (Uniform with Stevenson's "A Child's Garden") 12mo $1.50.=

"A collection of those dearly loved 'Songs of Childhood' by Eugene Field, which have touched many hearts, both old and young, and will continue to do so as long as little children remain the joy of our homes. It was a happy thought of the publisher to choose another such child lover and sympathizer as Kenneth Grahame to write the Preface to the new edition, and Charles Robinson to make the many quaint and most amusing illustrations." The Evangelist.

=With Crockett and Bowie by Kirk Munroe=

=With 8 full page Illustrations by Victor S. Perard. 12mo $1.50.=

This "Tale of Texas; or, Fighting for the Lone Star Flag," completes the author's White Conqueror Series . The Minneapolis Tribune says: "It is a breezy and invigorating tale. The characters, although drawn from real life, are surrounded by an atmosphere of romance and adventure which gives them the added fascination of being creatures of fiction, and yet there is no straining for effect."

=The Naval Cadet=

=With 6 full page Illustrations by William Rainey, R... Continue reading book >>
