ANTIQUE

Views of Ye Town of Boston.

By JAMES H. STARK.

This is the title of one of the most valuable contributions to the HISTORY of BOSTON that has been made in many years.  It embraces a series of upwards of ONE HUNDRED VIEWS of OLD BOSTON, that have been gathered from private and public collections, and most faithfully reproduced by the Photo-Electrotype Engraving Company’s process of Boston.

The Book is handsomely BOUND IN CLOTH.  On the front cover is a view of the Old State House, embossed in gold; on the back cover is a veneer made from the Old Elm, on which is printed a view of the old tree, and an autograph letter from Mayor Cobb (who was mayor of Boston at the time of the destruction of the tree), certifying to its authenticity.  It is a book of 400 pages, imperial octavo, and a limited number is offered at

$6.00 PER COPY.

STARK’S ILLUSTRATED

BERMUDA GUIDE.

The Bermuda Islands are coming more prominently before the public each season, as a health resort and winter watering place.  Although it is but sixty-five hours’ sail from New York to these coral islands, yet they are strangely unfamiliar to most well informed Americans.  Speaking our own language, having the same origin, with manners and customs prevalent in New England a century ago, it is only now that these islands and their inhabitants have attracted much attention and led the public to inquire concerning them.

It is to satisfy this demand and also to bring to the notice of those unacquainted with the beauties of these semi-tropical islands that the writer has been led to issue this work, which is the first illustrated guide-book and history of Bermuda yet published.  The book contains two hundred pages, and is embellished with sixteen photo-mechanical prints made by a new process from negatives (taken by the author during the past winter) of the finest scenery in Bermuda.  This is a new feature in the matter of book illustrations, and it makes the work both unique and valuable.
