EAR MR. SMURTHWAYT,- The autumn rush of

new books has fairly commenced. For the wise

publisher, taking time by the forelock, has already issued, in order to escape the deluge of distinctively “ gift-book literature," a fair proportion of what is most valuable in his season's announcements. Just now there is more than a chance of a good book getting some share of attention; later, all but the most important have to take their turn. But in the following list of “volumes most in demand” the first two books, at least, are hardly likely to be beaten, from the point of view of sales, this side of Christmas :

Sir George Tressady. By Mrs. Humphry Ward. 6s.
The Murder of Delicia. By Marie Corelli. 53.

The Reds of the Midi: an Episode of the French Revolution.
By Félix Gras. 3s. 6d.
Armenia and its Sorrows. By W. J. Wintle. ls.

Songs of Travel and Other Verses. By Robert Louis Stevenson. 58.

Victoria, Her Life and Reign: an Illustrated Biography of the Queen. By A. E. Knight. 33. Od. You will have read “Sir George Tressady” (Smith and Elder, 6s.) in its unrevised form (for since its serial publication Mrs. Humphry Ward has made considerable alteration) as it appeared in the Century, so I need waste no time in referring to it here. Nor need I dilate at length on Miss Corelli's new story “The Murder of Delicia” (Skeffington, 5s.), which, like its more recent forerunners, has not been sent out to the press-so that you will be able to attack it with appetite unsated with the suggested detail of a hundred reviews. That this policy has not saved Miss Corelli from her critics is evidenced, however, by a recent article on “Our Lady of Pars ” in the Saturday. “The Reds of the Midi," by M. Félix Gras, deserves the success it has gained. I sent it you, with some comment, last month. Mr. Wintle's “ Armenia and Its Sorrows” (Melrose, ls.) is not by any means the only book that the crisis has called forth, as you will see when I come to describe the other contents of your box, but it is the cheapest and handiest, and as it contains a number of illustrations and a good map, its popularity is well-earned. The author's attempt has been “to present a concise account of the Armenians and their recent sufferings. The next book, " Songs of Travel and Other Verses "' (Chatto, 5s.), brings a thrill to the lover of literature that is not likely to be often equalled before the end of the century. Certainly it contains passages that I, for one, shall always remember as among the most charming, the most characteristic, and the most truly beautiful of all the fine passages that their autlior produced. For instance, there is that insistent, appealing “ To My Old Familiars," which appeared first in a rather obscure antipodean annual, with its powerful description of Edinburgh, “our inclement city" :

Do you remember-can we e'er forget?-
How in the coiled perplexities of youth,
In our wild climate, in our scowling town,
We gloomed and shivered, sorrowed, sobbed and feared ?
The belching winter wind, the missile rain,
The rare and welcome silence of the snows,
The laggard morn, the haggard day, the night,
The grimy spell of the nocturnal town,
Do you remember ?-Ah, could one forget!....

I have since then contended and rejoiced ;
Amid the glories of the house of life
Profoundly entered, and the shrine beheld :
Yet when the lamp from my expiring eyes
Shall dwindle and recede, the voice of love
Fall insignificant on my closing ears,
What sound shall come but the old cry of the wind
In our inclement city? what return
But the image of the emptiness of youth,
Filled with the sound of footsteps and that voice

Of discontent and rapture and despair ? Mr. Knight's “ Victoria, Her Life and Reign,” you had from me a month ago. It would make a particularly opportune prize in your village school.

Now to attract your attention at once to two volumes, so small that they may not be noticed, but large with temperament and interest. Who is there who has forgotten “The Sunless Heart,” that bitter-sweet firstfruit of the talent of a young Scottish authoress, and the evidence which it afforded of power, originality and intensity of feeling? You will therefore be glad to receive Miss Johnstone's second book, “ The Douce Family,” which Mr. Fisher Unwin has just published in his Century Library (1s. 6d.). I do not suppose you will like the theme, although it is one that seems to have some attraction for women writers nowadays. We have had novels enough in which the brilliant and clever hero is enslaved by some wanton whose physical charms constitute her sole capital. In “ The Douce Family" the plot is the same, but the roles are reversed. It is the woman who has the brains and the man the physique. But since Queen Titania loved ass-hea led Bottom, there was never such an inversion of the fitness of things as the sacrifice by the winsome but wilful Winona at the shrine of such a stupid, vulgar, selfish brute as John Douce. It is a sad story, and the saddest thing about it is that Edith Johnstone should have written it. There is no radiance in “ The Douce Family” to cast a gleam of light over Suniess Heart.

Mr. Coulson Kerpahan is developing into a veritable Fidei Defensor. In his latest little book "The Child, the Wise Man, and the Devil” (Bowden, Is.), we lave a quaint, vivid and striking presentation of the desolation, moral, social and human, which would follow if God wiped out, as a child wipes out an unworked sum from å slate, all that the great name of Jesus means and has meant for humanity. I will not spoil your pleasure in reading Mr. Kernahan's finely conceived vision, but merely commend to you one sentence headed “The Child a Soldier of the Cross." The little child in the arms of Jesus has, says Mr. Kernahan, “struck deadlier blows at the enemies of the Cross than all the arguments of all the theologians. That child is the most powerful foe whom the armies of unbelief have to fear."

As I suggested just now, there have been quite a number of books owing their appearance to the gangrene in the near East. The largest and the most valuable is “ Turkey and the Armenian Atrocities” (Unwin, 10s. Gil.), the work of a young American missionary, the Rev. Edwin M. Bliss, who has treated his subject with knowledge and ability. Miss Willard commends his work in a brief introduction, and there are several illustrations of a novel character, and a good map. With somewhat different object appears the anonymous “ Historical Sketch of Armenia and the Armenians in

Ancient and Modern Times, with Special Reference to Painting” (Henry, 18s. 6d. net), which deals more the Present Crisis” (Stock, 5s.); but a book which will particularly with “The Painters of Life,” and “The interest far more readers in the movement for the relief New Idealists,” and with the most recent developments of the Armenians is Miss Edna Lyall's “The Auto of modern art. The small reproductions of well-known biography of a Truth” (Longmans, Is.), a tale built on paintings by each master are admirably executed, and the plan of her “Autobiography of a Slander,” published will be extremely useful as reminders of their arrangenearly two years ago. All the profits that are made by ment and composition. The publishers deserve conthe sale of this story are to be devoted to the Armenian gratulation on so successful a termination of so valuable cause, so, though it is rather sentimental than powerful, a task. Then you will find a rather sumptuous volume, it deserves success.

To the series devoted to By-Ways of Bible of which I have already sent you, has been added a History has been added the late William Knight's useful collection of “English Essays” (Blackie, 3s. 6d.), “ The Arch of Titus and the Spoils of the Empire selected and edited by Mr. J.

It is "Le Cardinal Manning,” is in two big volumes, is “ based chiefly on the MSS. O by Francis de Pressensé (Perrin, 3 fr. 50 c.).

Coming nearer to what he considers the collapse of the Protestant defence home, we have Dr. David Murray's “An Archæological against unbelief. While it could offer an infallible guide Survey of the United Kingdom” (Maclehose, Glasgow, in the shape of the printed Word of God, as an alternative 1s.), a reprint of an address delivered at Glasgow with to the Infallible Church, it survived.

thrce of Baedeker's Handbooks –“ Paris and Environs, with Routes from London to Paris" (Dulau, 6s.), “ London and its Environs" (6s.), and “ The Rhine from Rotterdam to Constance(75.)—all of which seem to have been considerably improved.

Three or four interesting theological and religious books will provide you with a sufficiency of reading for wet Sabbaths. Mr. Stopford Brooke's “The Old Testament and Modern Life" (Isbister, 6s.) is a collection of short discourses, which, taking the stories of the Old Testament for their basis, read into them a lesson for humanity to-day. Count Tolstoi's “ The Gospel in Brief” (Scott, 23. 6d.) is described as “a deliberate and careful endeavour to simplify, summarise, and emphasise” all that the author of " Anna Karenina” has before said as to “Jesus and His teaching." The Rev. Francis Bourdillon's “ The Voice of the People: Some Proverbs and Common Sayings examined and applied, with Special Reference to Practical Life” (R.T.S., 2s.) sufficiently explains itself.

I have in months past sent you more than one book on flowers by Mr. Edward Step. He must be a versatile writer, for to-day I send a volume similar in size entitled "By the Deep Sea: a Popular Introduction to the Wild Life of the British Shores (Jarrold, 5s.). It is a well-illustrated and a practical manual. I thought it well to enclose the Rev. George Henslow's "How to Study Wild Flowers” (R.T.S. 25. éd.), with Dr. Renlow's "The Human Eye and Its Auxiliary Organs Anatomically Represented, with Explanatory Text” (Philip, 2s. 6d. net), a new edition, with a paper on “ Eyesight” by Mr. John Browning. Miss Florence Stacpoole's “Everyday Ailments and How to Treat Them” (Scott, 6d.) strikes me as a most useful little brochure. And you will also find a new edition of Dr. Gregory's “ Animal Magnetism; or Mesmerism and its Phenomena” (Redway, 6s, net).

I have made a selection of the best of recent new editions to send you this month. First is the new volume of the series of Illustrated Standard Novels Captain Marryat's “The King's Own” (Macmillan, 3s. 6d.), with an introduction by Mr. David Hannay and . a number of clever illustrations by Mr. F. HI. Townsend.

This series remains still one of the cheapest and most attractive in the market - in spite of a series on identical lines which a new firm," betraying thereby lamentable lack of originality, have lately commenced to issue. There has recently, by the way, been quite a boom in Marryat as there has been a boom in Peacock. Messrs. Routledge are issuing a serviceable edition, under the direction of Mr. W. L. Courtney, and Messrs. J. M. Dent have just published two new volumes in their edition_“Poor Jack” and “ The King's Own” (3s. 6d. each, net.). This last is under the editorship of Mr. Brimley Johnson, is well illustrated, and is certainly Well produced externally. It is likely to be the standard e lition of a series of novels which, as long as boys care at all for stirring yarns, will never lack readers. I don't know whether it is to Mr. Clement Shorter, the editor of the Illustrated London News, that we owe the excellent idea of a series of Nineteenth Century Classics, but anyhow he is the editor of the series, with which an excellent start has been made with Carlyle's “ Sartor Resartus," with an introduction by Professor Dowden, his "On Heroes and Hero-Worship," with an introduction by Mr. Gosse, and Matthew Arnold's “ Alaric at Rome and other Poems,” with an introduction by Dr. Garnett (Ward and Lock, 2s, 6d. each). Each

volume contains a portrait of its author in photogravure, and the whole appearance is such that, at the price, I can honestly say the series has not been approached for all round excellence. Many of the poems of Arthur Hugh Clough are just out of copyright, and Mr. Ernest Rhys has seized the opportunity to edit “The Bothie, and Other Poems” (Scott, 1s.) for the Canterbury Poets. I need not point out to you how beautiful and thoughtful a poem “ The Bothie” is. How fine, for instance, is that description of the water and the bathing in the third canto! But this little volume does not contain the immortal “New Decalogue." A new edition, with numerous improvements, has appeared of Mr. J. G. Bartholomew's “Handy Reference Atlas of the World” (Walker, 7s.6d.), for years the most convenient book of its class; the whole of Dumas's “ Monte Cristo " has appeared in one well printed and illustrated volume (Scott, 3s. 6d.); and “The Best Plays of Sir John Vanbrugh” (Unwin, 3s. 6d.) have been issued in the Mermaid Series of Old Dramatists, under the editorship of Mr. A. E. H. Swaen. Finally I must mention the parts (Dent, 2s. 6d. each, net) of the new edition of Spenser's “Faerie Queene," which Mr. Fairfax-Muckley is “illustrating and decorating”in a manner extremely charming. When completed this will certainly be one of the most beautiful books that have been published. Mr. Fairfax-Muckley's work is finely decorative, and lacking entirely the morbid note which has gone so far to spoil recent works of this class.

I do not know whether you will hail Mr. Horace Pease, whose “ White-Faced Priest and other Northumbrian Episodes" (Gay, 3s. 6d.), I send you, as the “Ian Maclaren” of Northumberland. But I am sure you will enjoy the racy Northumbrian stories which Mr. Pease has written largely in the expressive vernacular of Tyneside. Northumberland has long waited its novelist, and there is some reason to believe that it has found him in Mr. Pease, whose previous volumes, “ Borderland Studies" and “ The Mark o’the De'il," light up with many a flash of sympathetic genius the almost unexplored regions of Northumbrian life. As an old Northumbrian I recognise the true note of my native county, and although you will not feel as much at home in the dialect, you will not find it so difficult as the Scotch of Drumtochty. And there are other novels-a new story of regulation length by “Iota," the author of “The Yellow Aster," entitled for some reason not entirely easy to understand, “A Quaker Grandmother” (Hutchinson, 6s.), but thoroughly readable; and a new novel by Miss F. F. Montrésor, “False Coin or True” (Hutchinson, 3s. 6d.). To the Keynotes Series has been added “Day-Books” (Lane, 3s. 6d. net), by Miss Mabel E. Wotton; to the Daffodil Library, « The Kaffir Circus: South Africa Stories of To-day" (Jarrold, ls.), by Miss Donovan; and to the Leisure Library a new novel of some length by Miss Nora Vynne—“The Story of a Fool and his Folly” (Hutchinson, 25.), which will certainly do something to further a reputation deservedly considerable already. One of those new authors whose progress one feels at once one will have every cause to watch, has appeared in Miss Edith Hamlet, whose "A Touch of Sorrow" (Dent, 4s. 6d, net) has attracted a deal of attention, and the ubiquitous Mr. Pett Ridge has issued another collection of his short stories and dialogues, under the title of “ An Important Man and Others” (Ward and Lock, 1s.). Finally, there is a new volume in Professor Saintsbury's edition of the novels of Balzac-" The Country Parson ” (Dent, 3s. 6d. net).
