A New Novel by the Author of “Children of the Mist"

Sons of the Morning

By EDEN PHILLPOTTS
Popular Edition. With frontispiece. 8vo,

$1.50
Special Autograph Edition. Limited to 1000 copies signed by the author.
With portrait and view of Dartmoor. 12mo, net, $1.50

(READY END OF SEPTEMBER) INCE the far-reaching success of “ Children of the Mist” little need be said con

cerning this author's virile work. This is the first novel he has written since the publication of that powerful work. The same strength of imagination, couched in the same vivid English, is characteristic of this new story, which has, perhaps, more of maturity about it. Mr. Phillpotts has again chosen Dartmoor, that corner of England which he knows and loves so well, for the scene of his novel.

The Bookman said of “Children of the Mist" : « This novel stands head and shoulders above its neighbors... a story of uncommon power, and rare in its fine quality of imagination and poctic beauty."

A Novel of

of Character UNLEAVENED BREAD

by

ROBERT
GRANT

"It is genuine life."

- Independent.

"true to the life."

-0. e. Sun.

Che Bookman says:

l'u “A very careful reading of it compels us at the outset to say that no American writer for many years has wrought out a work of fiction so full of meaning, so admirable in its literary quality, and so large and comprehensive as this book of Mr. Grant's.

Unleavened Bread has the rare merit of growing more and more absorbingly interesting as it nears the end. No casual review can do justice to the admirable skill Mr. Grant has shown in the development and conduct of the story, nor can we give an adequate idea of the point, the keenness and the pungency with which he has hit off a thousand little things, each of which, in itself, is of no particular importance, but all of which when taken together make the book a marvellous picture of American life to-day. The social part of it and the political part of it deserve equal praise ; and while the local color—whether the scene be Benham or New York or Washington-is perfect, the story as a whole is free from localism and is absolutely national.” The Spectator (London) says:

* Viewed in the light of a study of character, it would be difficult to find a modern novel cleverer than Unleavened Bread.

It is impossible within the narrow limits of a paragraph to give any idea of the extreme cleverness with which Selma's character is drawn. Readers, however, who are prepared to enjoy an interesting study of American life, with a subtly painted portrait of a delicate and virtuous female Pecksniff, had better send at once for Unleavened Bread. The book is a great deal more than readable.” And Other Critics say:
