NATIONAL SO CIETY'S PRIZE BOOKS for the YOUNG

CHAPTERS IN POPULAR NATURAL HISTORY

By Sir John Lubbock, Bart., M.P., F.R.S., Author of "Ants, Bees,
and Wasps," &c. With 90 Illustrations. Pp. 224. Bevelled boards,
cloth gilt, price 2s.

" These selections from Sir John Lubbock's well-known works have been judiciously
chosen, and the illustrations are admirable. Altogether, it is the most attractive of
countless reading-books that the New Code has called forth." — Journal of Education.

" It has been admirably condensed from his larger works on insects and wild flowers,
and will excite the wonder of young readers by the insight it gives them into the
mysteries of nature and science. . . . There is abundance to charm all classes of students,
and to set them thinking." — Daily Chronicle.

" A more interesting and instructive book we have not read for some time. . . . The
chapters on the colours of animals, and on plants, fruits, and seeds, should be read by
every person who has acquired the art of reading." — Irish Teachers' Journal.

" It was a happy thought of the Society thus to utilise and popularise some of Sir
John Lubbock's charming studies." — Literary Churchman.

HISTORICAL BALLADS

Edited and Annotated by Charlotte M. Yonge, Author of "Cameos
from English History." The Complete Work in One Volume.
Bevelled boards, cloth gilt, pp. 662, price 4s.

" Miss Yonge's two small volumes are suited to children by their simplicity of
language and clearness of subject. . . . We think that the poems are judiciously and
carefully chosen, and much attention has been bestowed on the short notes, the chief
object of which is just to give children a little knowledge of matters and allusions which
they would not properly understand." — Educational Times on Parts I. and II.

"We have no doubt that it was a labour of love to Miss Yonge to select and to
annotate the stirring ballad music in which English literature is so rich. It will be
nothing less than a liberal education to the children of the poor (or, indeed, of the rich)
to commit to memory and ponder over such verses as these." — Literary Churchman.

"We have in this interesting volume a rare collection of pieces suitable for recitation.
Much judgment has been exercised in choosing suitable poems, and care has been taken
in so adapting the pieces for standard work that their fitness is at once apparent. It is
the best collection of historical ballads that we know of." — Teachers' Aid.

NATIONAL SOCIETY'S RECENT PUBLICATIONS



THE LIFE OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR
JESUS CHRIST

Illustrated from the Italian Painters of the Fourteenth, Fifteenth,
and Sixteenth Centuries.

A Preface has been furnished to this volume, on the Growth of Religious

Art in Italy, by Mr. F. T. Palgrave, who has also added Critical and

Explanatory Notes on the Pictures and their Painters.

Richly bound in cloth boards, bevelled, gilt edges, price z\s.



The Church Quarterly Review says :— "This book is a perfect gem. ... It is,

indeed, a relief to turn to such matchless designs as these. It would be impos-
sible to speak too highly of the knowledge of the history of art, the elevation of
thought, and the elegance of style which Mr. Palgrave displays."

The Spectator says : — "The drawings are executed with much skill; and the
chromo-lithographic process is here employed with delicacy and success. Mr.
Palgrave's notes are pertinent and instructive. His Introduction is able and
eloquent."

The Academy says : — "This is a very beautiful book, and the chromo-lithographs
with which it is adorned, or rather, which are illustrated by the text, reflect
great credit on the care and skill of all concerned in their production."

1 he Athenaeum says : — " By way of preface, a highly intelligent and critical essay
on the growth, aims, and developments of religious art in Italy by Mr. F. T.
Palgrave. Each well-weighed and thoughtful sentence is worth reading. The
general purport of the book is well represented by the title. Mr. Palgrave
vouches for the beauty of the drawings made by Mr. Goodall, from which the
chromo-lithographs were taken. . . . A very ambitious effort has been extremely
successful."

The Portfolio says : — "The eloquent and informing preface and the critical notes
on the pictures, by Mr. F. T. Palgrave, are addressed to an adult and cultured
audience. . . . The literary part of the volume deserves more careful considera-
tion than is usually accorded to letterpress penned to accompany even high-class
illustrations."

The Art Journal Says : — "A work which should be the most popular, as it must be
the handsomest, of Christmas books bearing a religious character. . . . Twenty-
four wonderful little chromo-lithographs from drawings made on the spot. . . .
The volume is in every way a beautiful one."



THE STORY OF THE CHILDHOOD OF CHRIST. B y R. E. H. #.
THE STORY OF THE MINISTRY OF CHRIST. B y R. E. H. 4*.
THE STORY OF THE PASSION OF CHRIST. By R. E. H. 4 s.

R. E. H. 4s.

Each of the above four Volumes is illustrated by Six Pictures from the Italian Painters
of the Fourteenth, Fifteenth, and Sixteenth Centuries.
