Humor, grim or whimsical or genial, vivifies its
pages.

This book won in Paris the Goncourt Prize for
the best work pubHshed in France last year. It
has sold in France more than 300,000 copies, and
an American lately returned from that country
says that literally every one there who reads has
read and is talking about it.

For America it has the same message and the
same interest it has for France.

" This novel is epic in proportions," says the
New Republic. " It reduces Mr. Britling's Intel-
lectual Reactions to insignificance."

Says the London Observer: " Some unknown
man of genius, who calls himself Fitzwater Wray,
has translated the supreme novel of the war and
here it is in its divine sublimity of truth, undraped,
and unbedizened. I do not hesitate to put it on
the shelf beside Urquhart's 'Rabelais' or Fitz-
gerald's * Omar,' for it is in my mind already a
classic. If any book could kill war this is that

book."

A Crusader of
France

Letters of Captain Ferdinand Belmont

{Killed in action. 191S)

Translated prom the French by

G. FREDERIC LEES

With a Preface by HENRY BORDEAUX



A book of extraordinary beauty and
winning personality, well entitled to be
called the French '' Student in Arms."

'' They will be read/' says Henry Bor-
deaux in comparing these letters to the
Journal and Correspondence of Maurice
and Eugenie de Guerin, '' for many a long
year for their sincerity, their famihar and
provincial flavor, their profound intimacy,
their feeling for Nature, their religious
fervor. But there is something new in
their accent. Death straddles over them
as the arch of a bridge over running water.
Within the curve a fragment of heaven is
reflected and the water shivers,"

they awake from their present Nightmare,

The Coming
Democracy

By HERMANN FERNAU



An examination, secirching and merciless, of

system, by the author of "Because I Am a
German," and a demand for reforms which all
civilized countries of the world have enjoyed
for decades.



"The book is one of the most important
which the war has produced. " — The Spectator,

"We recommend the book to every serious
reader as one of the foremost books of universal
and permanent value thus far inspired by the
great war." — New York Tribune.

"A most remarkable book, an incisive sum-
mary of the entire Teutonic situation, a book
whose conclusions are identical with President
Wilson's reply to the Pope. " — Newark Evening
Call.
