METHUEN & CO., 36 ESSEX STREET, LONDON. W.C.
Kindly send me, when pub/ished, the several books which I have
marked on the above list.
THE COMING OF THE RANDOLPHS. By Adeline Sergeant.
MAVE. By Randal Charlton.
A story of several passions aroused by a girl whose beauty is as primitive as her
nature. Employed at a ribbon shop, in a market town, she meets Robert Trayner.
Afterwards she is consigned to the charge of a man obsessed by a religious enthusiasm.
He determines to mould and purify Mave's soul. His wife discovers to him that, whilst
acting in self-delusion, the worst passions have awakened in his breast. The final scenes
are enacted in Mave's woodland, where love becomes elemental.
CAESAR'S WIFE. By R. Melton.
This is a story of two politicians and a woman, round whose personalities the author
has woven a web of mingled and contrasting motives. The elderly statesman Dacre,
who awakes too late to the fact that he cares deeply for his young wife, finds himself
confronted in the field, alike of love and ambition, by his brilliant and youthful rival.
A story of modern political life.
THE HA'PENNY MILLIONAIRE. By George Sunbury.
A bank porter, after forty years spent in opening and shutting the bank door, receives
a handsome pension, and sets out at the age of fifty-six with the intention of ' seeing
life.' His innocent explorations take him into the frivolous society of seaside enter-
tainers, pierrots and nigger-minstrels. He essays love, finance, and athletics, and finally,
having tried every form of gaiety, arrives at a comfortable conclusion.
THE BAR. By Margery Williams.
A tale of life on the New Jersey Coast some seventy years ago. The heroine is a
country girl in whom runs the blood of many seafaring generations, and with her story
and those of the village folk about her is woven the mystery of a certain wreck on the
sandbar, from which the novel takes its name. There is a strong love-interest through-
out, and an element of adventure touching on tragedy.
PROFIT AND LOSS. By John Oxenham, Author of ' Barbe of
Grand Bayou.' With a Frontispiece by Harold Copping.
Is the story of two families whose interwoven fortunes cross continually for good
and ill. A story wherein ' Seeming good so often proves but loss, and what seemed
loss to blessing turns again.' The book is full of the strenuous battles of life and love.
The people, we have met in the world and are glad to meet here again. They have
their falls and wounds and sore hard times, but they win through in the end, and are
better for the fight. The scene is laid chiefly in London, with an occasional flight across
Channel. The story bears largely on certain aspects of literary life.
THE FORTUNES OF THE LANDRAYS. By Vaughan Kester.
This novel presents several generations of the same family, and the heroine, Virginia
Landray, grows from youth to age in the progress of the story. . . . The gold rush to
California in '49 is one of the episodes, and there is no lack of excitement. The main
point of the story is the struggle between Virginia Landray, who is proud of her name,
and a wealthy lawyer, Benson, who loves her. Virginia wins, and finds the old man
taking his revenge by robbing her.
LAUGHING THROUGH A WILDERNESS. By James Barr.
Resolved upon a wholly unconventional holiday, the author and two companions left
London for Canada, and, securing birch-bark canoes, plunged into that vast wilderness
lying between the Ottawa and Hudson Bay. This Book gives a most laughable account
of the many adventures which befel the Londoners in that unmapped wilderness.
EN DERBY. By Bertha Shelley.
The scene of the story is laid amid the picturesque surroundings of Australian station
life, which the author knows well. The secret round which the story is woven, planted
first in the heart of a girl who is then little more than a child, and which is held to the
last with the unswerving fidelity that belongs to a pure and simple nature, becomes as
the action progresses a means of revealing all her changing moods and the enduring
attributes of a woman born to be loved.
IN THE SERVICE OF LOVE. By Richard Marsh.
The story of a mystery, â€” of how a man who was murdered was found to be still
alive ; of how he continued to live long after he was dead ; of how he even married
and was seen of all men though the flesh was rotting off his bones. The story, also, of
a great love, of a man who lived in the service of love, â€” showing how he snatched a
young girl from the jaws of death â€” a girl-child just out of the prison gates, who,
though guilty of the crime for which she was condemned, was sinless ; how the shadow
of the prison continued with her ; and how, to preserve her from its haunting stigma,
the man who lived in the service of love, dedicated to her his whole life.
THE EGLAMORE PORTRAITS. By Mary E. Mann.
Mrs. Mary E. Mann's new story concerns itself with the history of the first few
months of the married life of Mr. and Mrs. Eglamore, beginning with the evening of
their return from the honeymoon. How the mother of the bride arranges matters to her
own taste in the new menage, and how the family portraits bÂ«ome a bone of contention
in the matrimonial dish, the story, which is in the lightest vein of comedy, shows.
THE GUARDED FLAME. By W. B. Maxwell, Author of
x ne title has a metaphorical meaning. This is a domestic story, in which the writer
attempts to give a realistic picture of the home-life of a great thinker â€” a man honoured
by all the world, but known to the world only in his work. The book may be con-
sidered as a study of the union of mind and matter, and its keynote is perhaps the
resultant conflict between thought and life.
TALLY HO ! By Helen Mathers.
Major Blundell, crack gentleman-rider, going into Somersetshire to race, takes a
y's hunting, and at Meet recognises 'Phantom,' the celebrated steeplechaser, that
Blagow.the groom, who brought ' Phantom ' to the Cross Roads, and knows his history,
has to be brought in ; and it is with the deception practised on the public by Major
Blundell and this man, in faking the horse, and winning practically every race with him
as ' Tally Ho ! pedigree unknown,' that the story is concerned.
A ROGUE'S TRAGEDY. By Bernard Capes.
Cartouche, the title-role protagonist of Mr. Capes's new novel, is a young bastard of
Fortune, who plays his part of libertine-heroic romance in the Savoy of the late
eighteenth century, when Victor-Amadeus III., a weak reactionary prince, was on the
throne of Sardinia. The story relates of the part taken by this Cartouche in an attempt
to check, in that Duchy, the disruptive processes of the French Revolution ; of his
indictment by a Secret Society ; and, finally, of the tragic sacrifice of himself and his
fortunes to an unrequited love.
HILDA STRAFFORD. A New Edition. By Beatrice Harraden.
THE WICKHAMSES. By W. Pett Ridge.
The Wickhams family, in Mr. Pett Ridge's new novel, came to London during the
early eighties ; father, a boy, and three daughters. An elder son had preceded them,
and was already doing astonishingly well in a hop merchant's office at the other side of
the wattr. The story of the progress of various members of the family is told by the
second son, Joe Wickhams ; who himself goes into the city, and comes out of it. In the
course of the novel, descriptions are given â€” in Mr. Pett Ridge's mannerâ€” of folk in
London and of places in London at a time when the folk and the places were younger
than they are now by some twenty years.
I KNOW A MAIDEN. By E. Maria Albanesi, Author of 'Susannah
and One Other.'
In her new novel Madame Albanesi breaks away completely from the country
element â€” the farms and orchards and those simple pictures of life with which her name
is so dosely associated. In ' I Know a Maiden ' her scope for characterisation,
however, has full play, and it is through the development of these studies of character
that the incidents move to the making of a strong plot.
IN THE SHADOW OF THE LORD. By Mrs. Hugh Fraser,
Author of 'The Slaking of the Sword.'
The first part of this story deals with the conditions which, prevailing in England in
the early part of the eighteenth century, made the American Revolution a foregone
conclusion fifty years before the outbreak of the War of Independence. The remainder
of the story, which contains mnny thrilling episodes, is devoted to describing the lives
of George Washington's parents, and the childhood and youth of their illustrious son.
The book closes wuh a vivid description of the fight at Fort Meadows, aod it will be
followed by a sequel which will trace the course of history to the end of the Revolution.
The early life of the hero is a subject hitherto untouched in fiction.
THE CAR OF DESTINY. By C. N. and A. M. Williamson,
Authors of ' The Lightning Conductor,' etc. Illustrated.
This is an absorbing story of love and romance in a motor car in Spain. The
Spanish hero and the English heroine pass through adventure after adventure, and the
plot is dosely and directly connected with the marriage of the young King of Spain.
The incidents range from Biarritz to Seville, Granada, and Madrid to the mountains in
LISTENER'S LURE.. By E. V. Lucas.
In this story, which is told in the form of letters, Mr. Lucas introduces the reader
to a little company of present-day friends and acquaintances, who comprise several
types, serious and humorous, within the ordinary experience of most of us, and who
incidentally touch on many of the questions of the moment. The story, which
is largely satirical, and more in the vein of comedy than anything else, shows (as the
title suggests) how much power may belong to a young woman who possesses the secret
of making other persons talk to her rather than talk herself.
THE CALL OF THE BLOOD. By Robert Hichens.
' The Call of the Blood ' is a story of Sicilian life, although the scene of the first two
chapters is laid in London. The three principal characters in it are an Englishwoman,
a Frenchman, and a man of mixed blood, English and Sicilian. Almost the whole of
the story passes in and near a lonely cottage on a mountain not far from Etna, between
Messina and Catania. The subsidiary characters are Sicilians, one of whom, a peasant
boy, is brought into intimate relation with the three persons already mentioned, and
plays an important part in the development of the plot, which is concerned with the
strange domination sometimes exercised over a man by a strain of foreign blood.
A NEW NOVEL. By Richard Bagot, Author of ' Donna Diana.*
The scene of Mr. Bagot's forthcoming novel is again laid in Italy. In his new work
the author shifts his canvas from Rome and the intricacies of Roman society, and draws
his characters from the ranks of the Italian provincial noblesse and its surroundings.
The action of the story takes place in a well-known medieval city in the Roman
province, and is more poignant in its development than is the case in Mr. Bagot's
preceding Italian studies.
THE HOUSE OF ISLAM. By Marmaduke Pickthall, Author
of ' Said the Fisherman.'
This is, as the title implies, a story concerning Mahometan subjects of the Porte.
Its humour and philosophy are Oriental ; the author's aim being to beguile his reader
out of the presumptuous Western attitude towards things Eastern into one more
enlightened and genial. The scene is laid in the highlands of Gilead, and in Jerusalem,
at a period some twenty years ago.
POACHER'S WIFE. By Eden Phillpotts, Author of
'The Secret Woman.'
This is a story of love and adventure. It has to do with sport also, and is mainly
concerned to show how a newly-married girl in the face of cruel difficulties succeeds in
righting her husband from the charge of murder which his rival has skilfully fixed upon
him. The hero escapes from custody and vanishes on his wedding-day. He is supposed
to have destroyed himself. Anon, however, it is proved that he is safe. Then further
disasters overtake him, and the reader is taken to the West Indies, through scenes of
wonder and mystery.
THE LADDER TO THE STARS. By Jane H. Findlatcr,
Author of ' The Green Graves of Balgowrie.'
' The Ladder to the Stars ' takes its name from a little picture by William Blake,
which represents two men putting up a ladder to try to reach the stars : underneath is
written, ' 1 want ! /want!'
The book is a story of endeavour and aspiration, but ends on a cheerful note.
A BLIND BIRD'S NEST. By Mary Findlater, Author of 'The
Rose of Joy.'
' A Blind Bird's Nest ' is a quiet story with a happy ending. The characters are away
from the rush of modern life, and the plot is chiefly in the development of emotion
rather than in circumstances.
The book takes its title from an old proverb which says that ' God builds the nest
of the blind bird.'
THE FIRST CLAIM. By M. Hamilton, Author of ' Cut Laurels.'
This is the story of the struggle between two passions â€” a woman's love for her
husband and her love for her child. Valerie Osborne has been divorced by her first
husband, and she believes herself to have done with the past. It is not till after five
years of happiness that she discovers the strength of the bond between her and the child
she thought she had forgotten â€” a child upon whom she has no longer any le^al claim.
The last part of the story takes place at Dinard.
