By BARRETT WENDELL, of Harvard University "Space forbids us to continue the subject any farther, but enough has been said to show how fruitful a formula has been applied by Professor Wendell to the analysis of our literary past. It remains to add that he has produced incomparably the best history of American literature thus far written by anybody, a history that is searching in its method and profound in its judgments, on the one hand, and, on the other, singularly attractive in the manner of its presentation."-The Dial. ($3.00.)

By MARTHA BOCKÉE FLINT

"A most charming book of essays on plants. Any lover of flowers will find the volume a delight, and it is printed and bound in a quaint, old-fashioned style which adds much to its charm." Washington Times. ($1.50.)

By HENRY T. FINCK

"His book is written in his usual smooth prose, is crammed full of good things; is very modern; is fearless to the fighting point; and every paragraph is signed H. T. F."-James Huneker.

AFTERGLOW

Later poems by JULIA C. R. DORR, author of "Afternoon Songs," etc. The Interior says: "We pronounce Mrs. Dorr the sweetest singer among American women.” (12m0, $1.25.)

SONGS OF TWO

By ARTHUR SHERBURNE HARDY. Certain poems that for several years past have attracted attention in their individual publication for qualities as remarkable as the author's poetic prose. (12m0, $1.00 net.)

SCRIBNER'S NEW IMPORTATIONS

A History of Hand-Made Lace

By MRS. F. NEVILL JACKSON

With Supplementary Remarks by Signor Ernesto Jesurum. With over 200 beautiful reproductions and illustrations and a number of monochrome and sepia plates. Crown 4to, $7.50 net.

The story is told with twofold force, for numerous illustrations are given, not only of the lace itself, but of the lace wearers, whose portraits, painted by such masters of detail as Holbein, Van Dyck, Rembrandt, Velasquez, and reproduced here, show not only the fabric itself but also the contemporary fashion of wearing it.
