NEW BOOKS BY E.V. LUCAS

A "MOVING-PICTURE NOVEL"

*Landmarks*

BY E.V. LUCAS, Author of "Over Bemerton's," "London Lavender," etc.

Cloth, 12mo. $1.35 net.

Mr. Lucas' new story combines a number of the most significant episodes in the life of the central figure; in other words, those events of his career from early childhood to the close of the book which have been most instrumental in building up his character and experience. The episodes are of every kind, serious, humorous, tender, awakening, disillusioning, and they are narrated without any padding whatever, each one beginning as abruptly as in life; although in none of his previous work has the author been so minute in his social observation and narration. A descriptive title precedes each episode, as in the cinema; and it was in fact while watching a cinema that Mr. Lucas had the idea of adapting its swift selective methods to fiction.



*Lucas's Annual*

Decorated Cloth, 12mo. $.75 net; paper, $.35 net.

Mr. E.V. Lucas has had the happy idea of making a collection of new material by living English authors which shall represent the literature of our time at its best. Among the contributors are Sir James Barrie, who writes in the character of an Eton boy; Mr. Arnold Bennett, with a series of notes and impressions; Mr. Austin Dobson, with a characteristic poem; F. Anstey, with a short story; Mr. John Galsworthy, with a fanciful sketch; Mr. Maurice Hewlett, with a light poem; Mr. Hugh Walpole, with a cathedral town comedy; "Saki," with a caustic satire on the discursive drama; Mr. Stephen Leacock, the Canadian humorist, with a burlesque novel; Mr. Lucas himself, and Mr. Ernest Bramah, the author of The Wallet of Kai Lung, with one of his gravely comic Chinese tales. Mr. Lucas, furthermore, has had placed at his disposal some new and extremely interesting letters of Robert Louis Stevenson, John Ruskin and Robert Browning, which are now made public for the first time.

OTHER BOOKS BY MR. LUCAS

*London Lavender*

Decorated Cloth, 12mo. $1.35 net.

Mr. Lucas has given us a particularly beautiful story in "London Lavender." We meet again several of the fine characters with whom Mr. Lucas has already made us acquainted in his other novels, as well as others equally interesting and entertaining. The intimate sketches of various phases of London life—visits to the Derby, Zoo, the National Gallery—are delightfully chronicled and woven into a novel that is a charming entertainment.

*The Loiterer's Harvest*

Illustrated. 12mo. $1.25 net.

*Harvest Home*

12mo. $1.00 net.

*A Little of Everything*

12mo. $1.25 net.

Seldom has one author to his credit so many sought-after travel books, delightful anthologies, stirring juveniles, and popular novels. In the novel as in the essay and in that other literary form, if one may call it such, the anthology, Mr. Lucas has developed a mode and style all his own.

The above volumes of essays contain much of Mr. Lucas' charming character delineation; in their amusing discursiveness, their recurrent humor, and their quiet undertones of pathos, the reader will catch many delightful glimpses of Mr. Lucas' originality and distinctiveness.

THE LUCAS WANDERER BOOKS

*A Wanderer in Florence*

Colored illustrations and reproductions of the great works of art.

"All in all, a more interesting book upon Florence has seldom been produced, and it has the double value that, while it should serve excellently as an aid to the traveler, it is so written as to make a charming journey even though one's ticket reads no further than the familiar arm-chair."—Springfield Republican.

Cloth, 8vo, $1.75 net.

*A Wanderer in London*

With sixteen illustrations in color by Mr. Nelson Dawson, and thirty-six reproductions of great pictures.

"Mr. Lucas describes London in a style that is always entertaining, surprisingly like Andrew Lang's, full of unexpected suggestions and points of view, so that one who knows London well will hereafter look on it with changed eyes, and one who has only a bowing acquaintance will feel that he has suddenly become intimate."—The Nation.

Cloth, 8vo, $1.75 net.

*A Wanderer in Holland*

With twenty illustrations in color by Herbert Marshall, besides many reproductions of the masterpieces of Dutch painters.

"It is not very easy to point out the merits which make this volume immeasurably superior to nine-tenths of the books of travel that are offered the public from time to time. Perhaps it is to be traced to the fact that Mr. Lucas is an intellectual loiterer, rather than a keen-eyed reporter, eager to catch a train for the next stopping-place. It is also to be found partially in the fact that the author is so much in love with the artistic life of Holland."—Globe Democrat, St. Louis.

Cloth, 8vo, $2.00 net.

*A Wanderer in Paris*

Wherever Mr. Lucas wanders he finds curious, picturesque, and unusual things to interest others, and his mind is so well stored that everything he sees is suggestive and stimulating. He is almost as much at home in Paris as in London, and even those who know the city best will find much in the book to interest and entertain them.

VOLUMES OF ESSAYS BY E.V. LUCAS

*Character and Comedy*

"Of all the readers of Charles Lamb who have striven to emulate him, Mr. Lucas comes nearest to being worthy of him. Perhaps it is because it is natural to him to look upon life and letters and all things with something of Lamb's gentleness, sweetness, and humor."—The Tribune.

Cloth, 16mo, $1.25 net; by mail, $1.35 net.

*One Day and Another*

"The informality, intimacy, unaffected humor, of these unpretentious papers make them delightful reading."—The Outlook.

Cloth, 16mo, $1.25 net; by mail, $1.35 net.

BOOKS FOR CHILDREN

*Anne's Terrible Good Nature*

A book of stories delightfully lighted up with such a whimsical strain of humor as children enjoy.

Cloth, 12mo, colored illustrations, $1.75 net.

*The Slowcoach (The Macmillan Juvenile Library)*

Mr. Lucas has a unique way of looking at life, of seeing the humor of everyday things, which exactly suits the butterfly fancy of a bright child.

Bedford. The wording of the title is an allusion to the very successful "Book of Verse for Children" issued ten years ago.

*The Ladies' Pageant*

BY E.V. LUCAS

"An unusual collection of poetry and prose in comment upon the varying aspects of the feminine form and nature, wherein is set forth for the delectation of man what great writers from Chaucer to Ruskin have said about the eternal feminine. The result is a decidedly companionable volume."—Town and Country.

"To possess this book is to fill your apartment—your lonely farm parlor or little 'flat' drawing-room in which few sit—with the rustle of silks and the swish of lawns; to comfort your ear with seemly wit and musical laughter; and to remind you how sweet an essence ascends from the womanly heart to the high altar of the Maker of Women."—The Chicago Tribune.

*Some Friends of Mine* A RALLY OF MEN

BY E.V. LUCAS

At last the sterner sex is to have its literary dues. In this little volume Mr. Lucas has essayed to do for men what he did for the heroines of life and poetry and fiction in "The Ladies Pageant." No other editor has so deft a hand for work of this character, and this volume is as rich a fund of amusement and instruction as all the previous ones of the author have been.

*The Gentlest Art*

*A Choice of Letters By Entertaining Hands*

EDITED BY E.V. LUCAS

Cloth, $1.25 net.

An anthology of letter-writing so human, interesting, and amusing from first to last, as almost to inspire one to attempt the restoration of the lost art.

"There is hardly a letter among them all that one would have left out, and the book is of such pleasant size and appearance, that one would not have it added to, either."—The New York Times.

"Letters of news and of gossip, of polite nonsense, of humor and pathos, of friendship, of quiet reflection, stately letters in the grand manner, and naive letters by obscure and ignorant folk."

OTHER BOOKS BY E.V. LUCAS

*Over Bemerton's*

A Novel

After seeing modern problems vividly dissected, and after the excitement of thrilling adventure stories, it will be positively restful to drop into the cozy lodgings over Bemerton's second-hand bookstore for a drifting, delightful talk with a man of wide reading, who has travelled in unexpected places, who has an original way of looking at life, and a happy knack of expressing what is seen. There are few books which so perfectly suggest without apparent effort a charmingly natural and real personality.

*Mr. Ingleside* (The Macmillan Fiction Library)

The author almost succeeds in making the reader believe that he is actually mingling with the people of the story and attending their picnics and parties. Some of them are Dickensian and quaint, some of them splendid types of to-day, but all of them are touched off with sympathy and skill and with that gentle humor in which Mr. Lucas shows the intimate quality, the underlying tender humanity, of his art.

*Listener's Lure*

A Kensington Comedy

A novel, original and pleasing, whose special charm lies in its happy phrasing of acute observations of life. For the delicacy with which his personalities reveal themselves through their own letters, "the book might be favorably compared," says the Chicago Tribune, "with much of Jane Austen's character work"—and the critic proceeds to justify, by quotations, what he admits is high praise indeed.
