Belles Lettres.


English Wayfaring Life in the Middle Ages (XIVth Century). By J.
J. JUSSERAND. Translated from the French by LUCY A. TOULMIN SMITH.
Illustrated. Demy 8vo., cloth, 21s.

    The Author has supervised the translation, and has added fresh
    matter, so that the volume differs in some degree from “_La Vie
    Nomade_.” Many of the illustrations are taken from illuminated
    manuscripts, and have never been published before.

    The stroll described in these pages may be imagined to be taken
    during the summer of 1888; all the dates, descriptions, and
    references herein having been brought down to the present day.


The Twilight of the Gods. “The Purple Head,” “Madame Lucifer,” “The
Demon Pope,” “The City of Philosophers,” “The Cup-bearer,” “Ananda the
Miracle-Worker,” “The Bell of St. Euschemon,” and other Stories. By
RICHARD GARNETT. Crown 8vo., cloth, 6s.

The Paradox Club. By EDWARD GARNETT. With Portrait of Nina Lindon. Crown
8vo., cloth, 6s.

    “Mr. Garnett’s dialogue is often quite as good as his
    description, and in description he is singularly happy. The
    mystery of London streets by night is powerfully suggested,
    and the realistic force of his night-pieces is enhanced
    by the vague and Schumann-like sentiment that pervades
    them.”—_Saturday Review._

VERNON LEE. Cheap Edition, in one volume. Demy 8vo., cloth, 7s. 6d.

    “It is the fruit, as every page testifies, of singularly wide

    time.”—_Contemporary Review._

    effect of creating activity in the reader’s mind which no other
    mode can equal. From first to last here is a continuous and
    delightful stimulation of thought.”—_Academy._


Juvenilia: A Second Series of Essays on Sundry Æsthetical Questions. By

Times. By JOHN ASHTON. Cheaper Edition, in one vol. Illustrated. Large
crown 8vo., 10s. 6d.

    “The book is one continued source of pleasure and interest,
    and opens up a wide field for speculation and comment, and
    many of us will look upon it as an important contribution to
    contemporary history, not easily available to others than close
    students.”—_Antiquary._


Legends and Popular Tales of the Basque People. By MARIANA MONTEIRO. With
Illustrations by HAROLD COPPING. Popular Edition. Crown 8vo., cloth, gilt
edges, 6s.

    “In every respect this comely volume is a notable addition
    to the shelf devoted to folk-lore ... and the pictures in

St. Nicholas,

_Conducted by_ MARY MAPES DODGE.

_AN “ALL-AROUND THE WORLD” YEAR._


    =St. Nicholas= for the coming year will tell English boys
    and girls of the thousands of millions of children of other
    countries: of French girls in their little black alpaca aprons,
    and German girls with their flaxen hair, and Italian boys with
    their dark eyes, and clever American children (the cleverest
    take in _St. Nicholas_), and little Chinese maidens, with their
    almond-eyes and long pig-tails, and woolly-headed African
    pickaninnies. Of the homes of all these children, of the
    toys of the shy Japanese, of the pine woods of the blue-eyed
    Norwegians, of the furs and toboganning of the Canadians,
    of the gum trees and kangaroos of the Australians, of the
    sharks and clear blue seas of the chocolate-skinned South-Sea
    Islanders—in fact, of nearly everything that amuses girls
    and interests boys, from the nursery rhymes of the Hottentot
    mothers to the guns and spears that the Icelandic fathers use
    to kill the white bears, _St. Nicholas_ means to tell its
    readers in Great Britain and Ireland.
