Herodotus for Boys and Girls.

Edited by JOHN S. WHITE. With 50 illustrations. 8 . $1.75
Library Edition. 2 vols. 16 $2.50

" The book really contains those parts of Herodotus which a judicious parent
would most likely have his boys and girls acquainted with, and Mr. White has
succeeded in condensing these by omitting multitudes of phrases inserted in the
Greek text. The print is so large and clear that no one need fear that it will
Coster a tendency to near-sightedness on the part of boy or girl." Nation.

The Travels of Marco Polo.

Edited for Boys and Girls, with explanatory notes and comments, by
THOMAS W. KNOX. With over 200 illustrations. 8. $1.75

" To the student of geography Marco Polo needs no introduction. He is
revered as the greatest of all travellers in the Middle Ages, and by more than one
careful geographer his work is believed to have led to the discovery of the New
World by the Hardy Mariner of Genoa. . . . The story of his travels was
received with incredulity, and he died while Europe was gravely doubting its
truth. ^ It has remained for later generations to establish the correctness of his
narrative and accord him the praise he so richly deserves."
