MR. JOHN LANE begs to announce for Publication during February:

[merged small][ocr errors]

THE COLLECTED POEMS OF WILLIAM WATSON. Crown 8vo, 305 pp., designed cover. $2.50.

This volume includes the work contained in the author's several volumes, “ Poems,"“ Odes and other Poems," "" The Father of the Forest and other Poems," "The Year of Shame,"“ The Hope of the World and other Poems," with the exception of a few poems excluded by the author.

The London Dail, Chronicle says: "As we look through this collected edition of his work, we feel confirmed in our belief that whatever his limitations, and they are not few, it is Mr. Watson's function and his glory to hand on, in this generation, the great classical tradition of English poetry. on the threshold of the twentieth century he reconciles and brings to a common denominator, as it were, the best qualities of eighteenth-century and nineteenth-century verse. He is the heir no less of Dryden tban of Tennyson; it is hard to say wherber Keats or Pope has more potently influenced him. There is significance in the fact that bis favorite instrument, which he fingers with the utmost mastery, is the classic instrument of the English Muse- the iambic pentameter. Pregnant, resonant, memorable lines flow inexhaustibly from his pen; and some of them, we venture to predict, will live with the language. THB SILENCE OF Love. By Edmond Holmes. Small 4to, $1.50. A volume of Sonnets, THE RUBAIYAT OF OMAR KHAYYAM. A Paraphrase from several literal translations. By Richard Le Gallienne.

Now edition. With a cover design by WILL BRADLEY. $1.25.
A DAUGHTER OF THE Vine. By Gertrude Atherton. Crown 8vo., $1.50.

A new novel by Mrs. Atherton; a companion volume to “ The Californians," and "American Wives and English Husbands."
THE SPIRIT OF PLACE AND OTHER ESSAYS. By Alice Meynell. F.cap 8vo, $1.25.
THE ALHAMBRA AND OTHER POEMS. By P. B. Money-Coutts. $1.25. By the author of “ The Revelation of St.

Love the Divine,"


Third edition. F.cap 8vo, $1.25. The Boston Journal says: “It is generally a commonplace of criticism to say that a sequel is quite independent of its predecessor, and has an interest of its own. To the devoted readers of Mr. Grahame's books such a recommendation seems a sacrilege. What pity would we not offer to the daring unfortunate who would wish to read ' Dream Days' without reading the Golden Age,' who would force himself into intimacy with the characters whom he cannot appreciate. This must not deter anyone from reading this very charming book; he must only remember to read also its classic forerunner.' PAN AND THE YOUNG SHEPHERD. By Maurice Hewlett. Crown 8vo, $1.25.

The Bookmar says : “ Like the Forest Lovers,' it is bathed in a woodland atmosphere and vitalized with the passion of love and youth. It has the throbbing note of life, the spirit of everlasting youth and the bumaa impulse in it which find the universal beart,"

The London Daily Chroniclo sayo : “ It is a strange piece of work thoroughly characteristic of the imaginative writer who gave us that delightful romance. The Forest Lovers.'"
