THE NEW SIENKIEWICZ NOVEL, READY TO-DAY

WHIRLPOOLS

By Henryk Sienkiewicz

This new novel by the author of ‘‘With Fire and Sword,” ‘Quo Vadis,” etc., deals with conditions of modern life. The hero and heroine are made the central figures of a notable group of life-like characters and there is an unusual love story. Bril- liant dialogue, profound thought, and subtle analysis of human motives permeate the book, and the novelist shows that he has been a close observer of recent agrarian troubles and socialistic intrigues in Poland.

Translated from the Polish by Max A. Drezmal. Cloth, $1.50

ALSO PUBLISHED TO-DAY

THE PURSUIT

Timely Summer Books FOR

lvavellers ov Readers

A LABRADOR’ SPRING

By CHARLES WENDELL TOWNSEND

Author of ‘‘Along the Labrador Coast”

HIS volume is interesting not only as a description of a cruise along a portion of the southern Labrador coast beset with islands and abounding in salmon rivers, but also from its human atmosphere of Acadian fishermen, fur traders

and Montagnais Indians, and it gives one many glimpses of the picturesque life in these little known regions.

The chief object of Dr. Townsend’s vacation trip to Labrador was a study of the brief northern spring with its melting snow-banks, its bursting buds and procession of flowers, its migrating birds and Indians and the varied spring activities of its white settlers.

This book, like ‘‘Along the Labrador Coast,” by the same author, is fully illus- trated by numerous well-chosen photographs taken on the trip.

Illustrated. Cloth. I2mo, $.150

WAYWARD ANNE

By CURTIS YORKE

HE secret of Curtis Yorke’s popularity with ‘‘all sorts and conditions”’ of readers T is that she writes from experience in life and art, that she possesses clearness of vision, and that in all her work there is a refreshing absence of the ‘*mechanical” and the ‘‘unreal.” The plot of ‘‘Wayward Anne” is simplicity itself —but it is the simplicity of the art which conceals art. An unconventional friend- ship of a man, who is under a cloud, with a girl who believes in him, forms its basis.

“«The Man Higher Up,’ the new novel by Henry Russell Miller, leads the way as the strongest new book of the Spring.

“It is big and ambitious; it has news’ value; it engages an important theme; it has real Sig- nificance. It is a great book because of a sort of underlying defiance there is in it.

“Tt throws out a superb chal- lenge; it has something intensely vital in it, something so virile that you involuntarily get beyond the story and back to the man who wrote it.”—Oakland Tribune.

THE NEW NOVEL

“NATHAN BURKE”

By MARY S. WATTS. Citi, 87.50

Don’t be discouraged by the length of “Nathan Burke.” You will read and re-read many times every one of its 628 pages. What is more, your children and grandchildren will also read them, and this can be said truly of few current popular novels.

It is unfortunate that you should have been misled into buying many worth- less novels by unscrupulous advertisements and still more unscrupulous so-called reviews. “Nathan Burke” is different. You will be glad that this advertisement induced you to buy it,

and

‘‘Nathan Burke’”’ is published by The Macmillan Company, and our recommendation to you to buy it and read it means something even in these days when so many poor novels are widely advertised and exploited.

‘““NATHAN BURKE.’’ WHAT THE BEST CRITICS SAY:

“The longer we abide with her friendly group the more interesting they become and the more sorry are we to find the volume in our hand growing thicker on its left. However, one may always read again, and the reading again and yet again brings out

Only once in a decade, says the Boston Transcript, is a new novel added to the list of those “destined to endure.” ‘In the enthusiasm aroused by the first reading of ‘Nathan Burke,’ one is inclined to extrav- agance of praise. Here is a novel so

subtle revelations, delicate nuances, at first unperceived. Especially does one appreciate more and more the quality of the humor, existing as a pervasive flavor, not a succession of flashes.”"— Zhe New York Times. “«Nathan Burke’ has a universal appeal.”’—New York American.

Extraordinarily worth while.” —Record-Herald.

sound, so filled with much that has inspired the great novels, that it is hard to maintain moderate standards of comparison.”

The Outlook finds that it responds well to the only test for this kind of writing, that “the interest continues throughout, increasing rather than abating as the story slowly folds.”

un-

“NATHAN BURKE”

is “the best book that has appeared for years.” “The most fascinating new book of the Spring.”

NOTES IN SEASON.

No announcement has yet been made as to when Mr, Roosevelt’s series of European ad- dresses will be published in book form.

Funk & WacNnatts Company have ready “The Dethronement of the City Boss,” by John J. Hamilton, which gives a complete description of the workings of the Des Moines or commission plan of city govern- ment, now in operation in upwards of 70 and being fostered by the press every- where.

THoucH published but a month ago, Miss L. H. Montgomery’s new book, “Kilmeny of the Orchard,” has already jumped into the

The Publishers’ Weekly 2179

ranks of the “best sellers,” and its publishers (L. C. Page & Company, Boston) are rush- ing through a fourth large edition to meet the insistent demand for the new book by the author of “Anne of Green Gables,” now in its twenty-second large edition, and its se- quel, “Anne of Avonlea,” now in its eleventh edition.

J. B. Lipprncorr Company have just issued “Sterne: a Study,” by Walter Sichel, to which is added “The Journal to Eliza,” printed for the first time, four new letters and eleven illustrations in text; “The Laws of Life and Health,” by Dr. Alexander Bryce, presented in simplest language; “Chats on Electricity,” by Frank Broadbent, fully il- lustrated by the authcr; and “Hydrographic Surveying, a Practical Handbook,” by Com- mander S. V. S. C. Messum, retired, Royal Navy, with 262 figures and 22 plates.

B. W. Huesscu, New York, announces that he will publish a new novel by James Oppenheim, the author of the “Dr. Rast” stories. It may be predicted that the book will become the subject of controversy, for the author has taken as his central theme a social evil which is usually avoided in public discussion, but which he treats reverently and understandingly. His point of view is that of Dr. Prince A. Morrow, head of the So- ciety of Sanitary and Moral Prophylaxis. Skilfully interwoven is a beautiful story in which are introduced the East Side figures which Mr. Oppenheim has made famous. This novel is said to reveal a distinct ad- vance in the author’s development.

Hurst & Co., always on the alert for time- ly publicity, call the attention of the trade to their Boy Aviators’ Series, of which there will be six, of which “The Boy Aviators’ in Nicaragua, or, in League With the Insur- gents,” and “The Boy Aviators on Secret Service, or, Working With Wireless,” are now ready. Now that Glenn H, Curtiss, the aviator, has made his famous trip from Al- bany to New York, books on aerial naviga- tion will be much sought for. They also announce that they are making an entirely new series of boys’ books, entitled the Boy Scout Series (trademark registered). The titles of this series will be given out later. Their Boy Aviator Series is having a very satisfactory sale, the second volume being just published.

Tus is June, the month of brides and roses. If booksellers cannot prepare espe- cially for the latter they can for the former. One of the best ways to do this is to secure an ample supply of such a book as Houghton Mifflin’s just published manual for the bride-to-be, “Her Book.” It contains a diary to begin at the time of her engagement, for recording luncheons, teas, “showers,” and other pleasant happenings; pages for listing wedding presents and the dates of their ac- knowledgment; pages for lists of wedding guests, bridesmaids and ushers; for descrip- tions of the bride’s trousseau, her wedding gown and veil; for photographs and news- paper clippings; in short for everything of importance that occurs in one of the hap- piest times of a girl’s life.
