MACDOWELL LITERATURE.

MacDowell’s Critical and Historical Essays (Lectures delivered at Columbia University), referred to earlier in this book, are published in America by Arthur P. Schmidt and in England by Macmillan & Co., Ltd.  His Verses, a book of beautiful poetic inspirations, is published solely by Arthur P. Schmidt.  An enthusiastic study of MacDowell, by Lawrence Gilman, an American musical critic, is published by John Lane & Co., in New York and London.  Arthur P. Schmidt & Elkin & Co. stock all three books.

EDGAR THORN PIECES.

The following pieces were published by MacDowell under the pseudonym of Edgar Thorn.  He stipulated that the royalties resulting from their sale should be paid to a nurse who was at one time needed in his household.  They are mature pieces, although slight in form.
