A new volume in the "Hildegarde" series, some of the best and most deservedly popular books for girls issued in recent years. This new volume is fully equal to its predecessors in point of interest, and is sure to renew the popularity of the entire series.

=HILDEGARDE'S NEIGHBORS.=

Fourth volume. Illustrated from original designs. Illustrated by L. J. Bridgman. Square 16mo, cloth, $1.25.

=HILDEGARDE'S HOME.=

"We would like to see the sensible, heroine loving girl in her early teens who would not like this book. Not to like it would simply argue a screw loose somewhere." Boston Post.

=THE HILDEGARDE SERIES.=

as above. 5 vols., square 16mo, put up in a neat box, $6.25.

Next to Miss Alcott's famous "LITTLE WOMEN" series they easily rank, and no books that have appeared in recent times may be more safely put into the hands of a bright, intelligent girl than these five "Queen Hildegarde" books.
