A., who has been peculiarly interested in the book, and has accepted the commission with an enthusiasm and perfect appreciation which have produced the happiest and most sympathetic results.

Crane in character, and stage photographs. With preface and specially designed cover. Cloth, 75 cents; pocket book edition, $1.00.

The life of Professor Huxley is practically told in the letters contained in these volumes, which, with the connecting and purely biographical text, present one of the most interesting and important personal narratives of recent years.!

DR. EGGLESTON'S NEW HISTORY THE TRANSIT OF CIVILIZATION From England to America in the Seventeenth Century.

By EDWARD EGGLESTON. Uniform with "The Beginners of a Nation." Small 8vo. Cloth $1.50.

In this unique volume the eminent historian pictures the literary, scientific and other influences which were brought to this country from Europe in the early years of our history. He shows the religious ideas which the emigrants of the seventeenth century brought with them, and the modification of these ideas. Mother English, folk speech, folk lore, and literature are presented with an unequalled richness of knowledge. The moral code and weights and measures of conduct are explained. The medical practice of that century in England and in its American developments has never been described as it is in this book. It is well within bounds to say that no such book on culture in the seventeenth century has ever appeared in England or America.


THE EAGLE'S HEART A Story of the West. By HAMLIN GARLAND. 12mo.

Cloth, $1.50.

The N. Y. Mail and Express says: "Mr. Garland gives us as true an historical novel as any of the colonial period or the days of the War for Independence. He presents the dignity of the life and its service to the nation. The Eagle's Heart' is a splendid achievement, lifted above the rank and file of creditable work by the larger outlook, the deeper insight that differentiates the art of fiction from the mere gift of writing novels.'
