ODNE

“A notable and very brilliant work of genius." -London Speaker. “Dr. Doyle's novel is crowded with an amazing amount of incident and excite. ment... He does not write history, but shows us the human side of his great men, living and moving in an atmosphere charged with the spirit of the hard-living, hardfighting Anglo-Saxon.”-New York Critic.

STEPHEN CRANE'S BOOKS.

12mo. Cloth, $1.00. “By this latest product of his genius our impression of Mr. Crane is con. armed that, for psychological insight, for dramatic intensity, and for the potency of phrase, he is already in the front rank of English and American writers of fiction, and that he possesses a certain separate quality which places him apart."-London Academy.

“The whole book, from beginning to end, fairly bristles with fun. ::: It is adapted for pure entertainment, yet it is not easily put down or forgotten.” Boston Heraid.

TH

HE LITTLE REGIMENT, and Other Episodes

of the American Civil War. I 2mo. Cloth, $1.00. “In 'The Little Regiment' we have again studies of the volunteers waiting impa. tiently to fight and fighting, and the impression of the contest as a private soldier hears, sees, and feels it, is really wonderful. The reader has no privileges. He must, it seems, take his place in the ranks, and stand in the mud, wade in the river, fight, yell, swear, and sweat with the men. He has some sort of feeling, when it is all over, that he has been doing just these things. This sort of writing needs no praise. It will make its way to the hearts of men without praise."-New York Times.

“Told with a verve that brings a whiff of burning powder to one's nostrils. . In some way he blazons the scene before our eyes, and makes us feel the very impetus of bloody war."-Chicago Evening Post.

A GIRL OF THE STREETS. 12mo. Cloth, 75 cents. “By writing 'Maggie' Mr. Crane has made for himself a permanent place in lit.

Zola himself scarcely has surpassed its tremendous portrayal of tiirobbing, breathing, moving life.”—New York Mail and Express.

Mr. Crane's story should be read for the fidelity with which it portrays a life that is potent on this island, along with the best of us. It is a powerful portrayal, and, if somber and repellent, none the less true, none the less freighted with appeal to those who are able to assist in righting wrongs."-New York Times.

of the American Civil War. 12mo. Cloth, $1.00. “Never before have we had the scamy side of glorious war so well depicted. The action of the story throughout is splendid, and all aglow with color, movement, and vim.

The style is as keen and bright as a sword-blade, and a Kipling has done nothing better in this line.”—Chicago Evening Post.

“There is nothing in American fiction to compare with it. Mr. Crane has added to American literature something that has never been done before, and that is, in its own peculiar way, inimitable."-Boston Beacon.

“ A truer and completer picture of war than either Tolstoy or Zola."-London Neu Review.

A BOOK THAT WILL LIVE."

DAVID HARUM. A Story of American Life.

By EDWARD NOYES WESTCOTT. Izmo. Cloth, $1.50. “Mr. Westcott has done for central New York what Mr. Catle, Mr. Page, and Mr. Harris have done for different parts of the South, and what Miss Jewex and Miss Wilkins are doing for New England, and Mr. Hamlin Garland for the West. David Harum' is a masterly delineation of an American type. ... Here is life with all its joys and sorrows. David Harum lives in these pages as he will live in the mind of the reader.... He deserves to be known by all good Americans; he is onc of them in boundless energy, in large-heartedness, in shrewdness, and in humor.". The Critic.

“Thoroughly a pure, original, and fresh American type. David Harum is a character whose qualities of mind and heart, eccentricities, and dry humor will win for his creator notable distinction. Buoyancy, life, and cheerfulness are dominant notes. In its vividness and force the story is a strong, fresh picture of American life. Original and true, it is worth the same distinction which is accorded the genre pictures of peculiar types and places sketched by Mr. George W. Cable, Mr. Joel Chandler Harris, Mr. Thomas Nelson Page, Miss Wilkins, Miss Jewett, Mr. Garland, Miss French, Miss Murfree, Mr. Gilbert Parker, Mr. Owen Wister, and Bret Harte. A pretty love story also adds to the attractiveness of the book, that will be appreciated at once by every one who enjoys real humor, strong character, true pictures of life, and work that is .racy of the soil." -Boston Herald.

“Mr. Westcott has created a new and interesting type. The character sketching and building, so far as David Harum is concerned, is well-nigh perfect. The book is wonderfully bright, readable, and graphic."-New York Times.

“The main character ought to become familiar to thousands of readers, and will probably take his place in time beside Joel Chandler Harris's and Thomas Nelson Page's and Miss Wilkins's crcations."-Chicago Times-Herald.

We give Edward Noyes Westcott his true place in American letters-placing him as a humorist next to Mark Twain, as a master of dialect above Lowell, as a descriptive writer equal to Pret Harte, and, on the hole, as a novelist on a par with the best of those who live and have their being in the heart of hearts of American readers. If the author is dead-lamentable fact-his book will live."-Philadelphia Item.

“True, strong, and thoroughly alive, with a humor like that of Abraham Lincoln and a nature as sweet at the core. The spirit of the book is genial and wholesome, and the love story is in keeping with it. The book adds one more to the interesting list of native fiction destined to live, portraying certain localities and types of American life and manners."-- Boston Literary World.

A notable contribution to those sectional studies of American life by which our literature has been so greatly enriched in the past generation. ... A work of unusual merit."-Philadelphia Press.

“One of the few distinct and living types in the American gallery."-St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

“The quaint character of 'David Harum' proves to be an inexhaustible source of amusement.-Chicago Evening Post.

"It would be hard to say wherein the author could have bettered the portrait he scts before us."-Providence Journal.

“ Full of wit and sweetness."-Baltimore Herald.

“Merits the heartiest and most unequivocal praise. . . . It is a pleasure to call the reader's attention to this strong and most original novel, a novel that is a decided and most enduring addition to American literature."-Boston Saturday Evening Gazette,

D. APPLETON AND COMPANY, NEW YORK.
