A companion edition to the handsome holiday edition of “Zenobia.” It is an historical tale of no ordinary power, and is familiar to the present generation chiefly from the reputation of its former success, but well deserves renewed popularity.
Or Scenes in Judea. By William Ware, author of “Zenobia,” etc. Handsomely printed from new, large type, on laid paper, and illustrated with full-page plates reproducing historic scenes described in the narrative. Small 8vo, cloth, gilt top, uniform with our holiday editions of “Zenobia” and “Aurelian,” each copy in a box. $2.50.
Completes the series of historical romances by the author of “Zenobia.” The scene is laid at an earlier date than “Aurelian,” being in fact during the time of Christ’s ministrations in Judea, scenes which have since been so grandly used by Lew Wallace in “Ben Hur.” To most of the present generation the book will possess all the charm of novelty.
