Versa," "The Giant's Robe," etc. 16mo. Cloth, special binding, $1.25.

believing every word we read.... The book has deeply

once." - _London Daily Chronicle._

Ware," "In the Valley," etc. 16mo. Cloth, special binding, $1.25.

many a day. It has much of the rapidity and vigor of a
smartly written farce, with a pervading freshness a smartly
written farce rarely possesses.... A book decidedly worth
reading." - _London Saturday Review._

"A striking and original story, ... effective, pleasing, and
very capable." - _London Literary World._

GILBERT PARKER'S BEST BOOKS.

_THE SEATS OF THE MIGHTY._ Being the Memoirs of Captain ROBERT MORAY,
sometime an Officer in the Virginia Regiment, and afterwards of
Amherst's Regiment. 12mo. Cloth, illustrated, $1.50.

"Another historical romance of the vividness and intensity
of 'The Seats of the Mighty' has never come from the pen of
an American. Mr. Parker's latest work may, without
hesitation, be set down as the best he has done. From the
first chapter to the last word interest in the book never
wanes; one finds it difficult to interrupt the narrative
with breathing space. It whirls with excitement and strange
adventure.... All of the scenes do homage to the genius of
Mr. Parker, and make 'The Seats of the Mighty' one of the
books of the year." - _Chicago Record._

"Mr. Gilbert Parker is to be congratulated on the excellence
of his latest story, 'The Seats of the Mighty,' and his
readers are to be congratulated on the direction which his
talents have taken therein.... It is so good that we do not
stop to think of its literature, and the personality of
Doltaire is a masterpiece of creative art." - _New York Mail
and Express._

_THE TRAIL OF THE SWORD._ A Novel. 12mo. Paper, 50 cents; cloth,
$1.00.

"Mr. Parker here adds to a reputation already wide, and anew
demonstrates his power of pictorial portrayal and of strong
dramatic situation and climax." - _Philadelphia Bulletin._

"The tale holds the reader's interest from first to last,
for it is full of fire and spirit, abounding in incident,
and marked by good character drawing." - _Pittsburg Times._

_THE TRESPASSER._ 12mo. Paper, 50 cents; cloth, $1.00.

"Interest, pith, force, and charm - Mr. Parker's new story
possesses all these qualities.... Almost bare of synthetical
decoration, his paragraphs are stirring because they are
real. We read at times - as we have read the great masters of
romance - breathlessly." - _The Critic._

"Gilbert Parker writes a strong novel, but thus far this is
his masterpiece.... It is one of the great novels of the
year." - _Boston Advertiser._

_THE TRANSLATION OF A SAVAGE._ 16mo. Flexible cloth, 75 cents.

"A book which no one will be satisfied to put down until the
end has been matter of certainty and assurance." - _The
Nation._

"A story of remarkable interest, originality, and ingenuity
of construction." - _Boston Home Journal._

"The perusal of this romance will repay those who care for
new and original types of character, and who are susceptible
to the fascination of a fresh and vigorous style." - _London
Daily News._


BY S. R. CROCKETT.

Uniform edition. Each, 12mo, cloth, $1.50.

_LADS' LOVE._ Illustrated.

In this fresh and charming story, which in some respects
recalls "The Lilac Sunbonnet," Mr. Crockett returns to
Galloway and pictures the humor and pathos of the life which
he knows so well.

_CLEG KELLY, ARAB OF THE CITY. His Progress and Adventures._
Illustrated.

"A masterpiece which Mark Twain himself has never
rivaled.... If there ever was an ideal character in fiction
it is this heroic ragamuffin." - _London Daily Chronicle._

"In no one of his books does Mr. Crockett give us a brighter
or more graphic picture of contemporary Scotch life than in
'Cleg Kelly.'... It is one of the great books." - _Boston
Daily Advertiser._

"One of the most successful of Mr. Crockett's
works." - _Brooklyn Eagle._

_BOG-MYRTLE AND PEAT._ Third edition.

"Here are idyls, epics, dramas of human life, written in
words that thrill and burn.... Each is a poem that has an
immortal flavor. They are fragments of the author's early
dreams, too bright, too gorgeous, too full of the blood of
rubies and the life of diamonds to be caught and held
palpitating in expression's grasp." - _Boston Courier._

"Hardly a sketch among them all that will not afford
pleasure to the reader for its genial humor, artistic local
coloring, and admirable portrayal of character." - _Boston
Home Journal._

"One dips into the book anywhere and reads on and on,
fascinated by the writer's charm of manner." - _Minneapolis
Tribune._

_THE LILAC SUNBONNET._ Eighth edition.

"A love story pure and simple, one of the old-fashioned,
wholesome, sunshiny kind, with a pure-minded, sound-hearted
hero, and a heroine who is merely a good and beautiful
woman; and if any other love story half so sweet has been
written this year, it has escaped our notice." - _New York
Times._

"The general conception of the story, the motive of which is
the growth of love between the young chief and heroine, is
delineated with a sweetness and a freshness, a naturalness
and a certainty, which places 'The Lilac Sunbonnet' among
the best stories of the time." - _New York Mail and Express._

"In its own line this little love story can hardly be
excelled. It is a pastoral, an idyl - the story of love and
courtship and marriage of a fine young man and a lovely
girl - no more. But it is told in so thoroughly delightful a
manner, with such playful humor, such delicate fancy, such
true and sympathetic feeling, that nothing more could be
desired." - _Boston Traveller._


STEPHEN CRANE'S BOOKS.

_THE THIRD VIOLET._ 12mo. Cloth, $1.00.

Mr. Crane's new novel is a fresh and delightful study of
artist life in the city and the country. The theme is worked
out with the author's characteristic originality and force,
and with much natural humor. In subject the book is
altogether different from any of its predecessors, and the
author's marked success proves his breadth and the
versatility of his great talent.

_THE LITTLE REGIMENT, and Other Episodes
of the American Civil War._ 12mo. Cloth, $1.00.

"In 'The Little Regiment' we have again studies of the
volunteers waiting impatiently to fight and fighting, and
the impression of the contest as a private soldier hears,
sees, and feels it, is really wonderful. The reader has no
privileges. He must, it seems, take his place in the ranks,
and stand in the mud, wade in the river, fight, yell, swear,
and sweat with the men. He has some sort of feeling, when it
is all over, that he has been doing just these things. This
sort of writing needs no praise. It will make its way to the
hearts of men without praise." - _New York Times._

"Told with a _verve_ that brings a whiff of burning powder
to one's nostrils.... In some way he blazons the scene
before our eyes, and makes us feel the very impetus of
bloody war." - _Chicago Evening Post._

_MAGGIE: A GIRL OF THE STREETS._
12mo. Cloth, 75 cents.

"By writing 'Maggie' Mr. Crane has made for himself a
permanent place in literature.... Zola himself scarcely has
surpassed its tremendous portrayal of throbbing, breathing,
moving life." - _New York Mail and Express._

"Mr. Crane's story should be read for the fidelity with
which it portrays a life that is potent on this island,
along with the best of us. It is a powerful portrayal, and,
if somber and repellent, none the less true, none the less
freighted with appeal to those who are able to assist in
righting wrongs." - _New York Times._

_THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE. An Episode
of the American Civil War._ 12mo. Cloth, $1.00.

"Never before have we had the seamy side of glorious war so
well depicted.... The action of the story throughout is
splendid, and all aglow with color, movement, and vim. The
style is as keen and bright as a sword-blade, and a Kipling
has done nothing better in this line." - _Chicago Evening
Post._

"There is nothing in American fiction to compare with it....
Mr. Crane has added to American literature something that
has never been done before, and that is, in its own peculiar
way, inimitable." - _Boston Beacon._

"A truer and completer picture of war than either Tolstoy or
Zola." - _London New Review._
