A BEAUTIFUL GIFT BOOK.

SHELLS

FROM THE

SEA-SHORE OF LIFE,

GATHERED BY

PEARLY SHELLEY.

* * * * *

This work comprises the lighter and more sketchy productions of one of the most original and distinguished writers in the country.  The “Shells” are symbolical of the various lights and shades of Life—­scattered over its surface or lying deep beneath its ocean.  They embody a series of writings which may be called

THE PARABLES OF THE WORLD!

Every one of the series contains a moral which the Christian as well as the man of the world may bring home to his observation or experience.  They sound the depths of the heart in the womanly as well as in the manly breast.

Some of these brilliant sketches symbolized in Shells, were originally published in many of the first-class newspaper and periodical press; while others, again, have been republished extensively throughout the country.  They are now “gathered” emphatically not only from the “Sea-Shore of Life,” by the Author, but from the mass of journals through which they have been scattered broadcast far and wide.

The “Shells” are published in a style which makes them, in their typographical and external dress, equal to their intellectual and moral interest, and renders them one of the most beautiful and appropriate presents that can be selected for the holidays.
