Faces in the Dawn
By HERMANN HAGEDORN
Cloth, 12mo, $1.35 net

A great many people already know Mr. Hagedorn through his verse.  “Faces in the Dawn” will, however, be their introduction to him as a novelist.  The same qualities that have served to raise his poetry above the common level help to distinguish this story of a German village.  The theme of the book is the transformation that was wrought in the lives of an irritable, domineering German pastor and his wife through the influence of a young German girl and her American lover.  Sentiment, humor, and a human feeling, all present in just the right measure, warm the heart and contribute to the enjoyment which the reader derives in following the experiences of the well-drawn characters.

     “A Christmas story, unusual and welcome....  All the people in the
     tale are real human beings.”—­New York Times.

     “A good substantial story ... written in plain, homely, and
     convincing prose.”—­New York Globe.

Poems and Ballads New Edition.  Cloth, 12mo, $1.00 net

“We can see from this volume that Mr. Hagedorn is a truly accomplished poet ... the poems are worth writing and are worth reading, because Mr. Hagedorn only writes what he really feels, and this volume will strike in many a reader a responsive chord.”—­Poetry Review (England).

     “Hermann Hagedorn’s work suggests a keynote for all future
     poetry.”—­Alfred Noyes.

     " ... contains an unusual amount of pure poetry.”—­New York
     Times.

JOHN MASEFIELD’S NEW VOLUME
Philip the King, and Other Poems
BY JOHN MASEFIELD
Author of “The Tragedy of Pompey,” “The Everlasting Mercy,”
“The Daffodil Fields”
Cloth, 12mo, $1.25 net

“Mr. Masefield’s new poetical drama is a piece of work such as only the author of ‘Nan’ and ‘The Tragedy of Pompey’ could have written, tense in situation and impressive in its poetry....  In addition to this important play, the volume contains some new and powerful narrative poems of the sea—­the men who live on it and their ships.  There are also some shorter lyrics as well as an impressive poem on the present war in Europe which expresses, perhaps, better than anything yet written, the true spirit of England in the present struggle.”
