first and second stories, except that the whole floor is connected by a series of
corridors which extend entirely round the building.

The walls of the West Pavilion are sheathed in a dado of white Italian marble
about ten feet high, above which is a vaulted ceiling ornamented with a bright,
open arabesque in green, blue, and yellow on a cream-colored ground. The
corridors have dados of American marbles, usually dark in color, as Lake Cham-
plain or Tennessee. For the walls and vaults, plain colors harmonizing with
the marble and set off with simple arabesques and borders, have been used.
The effect is well worth the attention of the visitor the rich tones of the
marble and the brighter coloring of the walls and vaults framing a long vista
seen through a succession of low, narrow arches.

COPLEY PRINTS!?



Fifteen years ago the present publishers of the COPLEY PRINTS, Messrs.
Curtis & Cameron, having observed the extraordinary development of American Art
and the acquisition of European masterpieces by galleries here, both public and private,
commenced the publication, in the permanent and beautiful form of reproduction since
known as the COPLEY PRINTS, of all the good art that might be found in the
country, so far as it might be possible to secure the permission of the owners, and, in
the case of artists still living, the co-operation of the artists themselves. Encouraged
by the favor with which these early prints were received, the publishers ventured further
and further in their selections, and their catalogue now contains a large list of the most
^important works of art owned throughout the United States. To quote from the
editorial notice of the Art Re-vieiu of October, 1900 : "At the Paris Exposition of
this year the Copley Prints were so highly thought of that the publishers were asked
to furnish two friezes made up of them for the United States National Pavilion. The
Parisian Press was enthusiastic in their praise, and, to crown their triumph, they received
the highest gold medal from the Jury of Awards."

PARIS EXPOSITION, 1900. ^j

Continuing, the Art Re-view remarks : yj

" Such a phenomenal success in a short time is simply the result of sterling merit kj

and the enforcement of a stringent rule that everything in their output must be perfect. ^|

Messrs. Curtis & Cameron's success has caused imitations to spring into existence, but .,

no one has been able to detract from the recognized merit of the GENUINE Copley y

Prints." V

The GENUINE Copley Prints are published only by Curtis & Cameron, and the ^|

initials of their name, C. & C., are now put on a lower corner of every genuine print %(

able success. It includes all fifteen panels complete,

on plate paper about 8 x 10 inches, the size of each picture
averaging 4x5 inches. They are exceedingly well done,
and have been approved by Mr. Abbey himself. The full
set is supplied in a very attractive portfolio, brown cloth,
with title stamped in gold. Portfolio itself is supplied only

separately, at fifty cents, list.

THE BROWNE AND NICHOLS

SCHOOL FOR BOYS,

20 Garden St., Cambridge, Mass.

Eight years' continuous course : three years, gram-
mar; five years, high school. Preparation for College
or Scientific School by any of the various methods.

Classes limited to fifteen. Boys not younger than
nine received in the grammar grade; French begun at
once; Latin, in the second year; Algebra or Con-
structional Geometry, in the third, or earlier.

Organization departmental, so that in nearly all
subjects each pupil has continuous work throughout
the course with the same instructor. Pupils in advanced
sections can thus enter college one year earlier than
the rest, or do their Freshman year's work in the
elective courses of their last year in school.

The School Building is new, designed to secure

The most approved ventilation and abundance of light,

and fully equipped with the latest appliances in Labor-
atories, Conservatory, and Gymnasium.

The situation of the School enables it to offer special
facilities for the education of the younger sons of

Families temporarily residing in Cambridge

during the college course of the older sons. The School
has the advantage of the free public lectures given
nearly every night at Harvard College, and of the
various Museums near by, whose valuable collections
are used to supplement school work in Science, History,
and Literature.

A home for seven toys is provided at No. 22 Garden
St., in one of the most healthful and attractive parts of
Cambridge. Catalogues, giving terms, course of study,
etc. on application.
