The Ladies’ Pageant

BY E.V.  LUCAS

“An unusual collection of poetry and prose in comment upon the varying aspects of the feminine form and nature, wherein is set forth for the delectation of man what great writers from Chaucer to Ruskin have said about the eternal feminine.  The result is a decidedly companionable volume.”—­Town and Country.

“To possess this book is to fill your apartment—­your lonely farm parlor or little ‘flat’ drawing-room in which few sit—­with the rustle of silks and the swish of lawns; to comfort your ear with seemly wit and musical laughter; and to remind you how sweet an essence ascends from the womanly heart to the high altar of the Maker of Women.”—­The Chicago Tribune.

Cloth. $1.25 net.

Some Friends of Mine A RALLY OF MEN

BY E.V.  LUCAS

At last the sterner sex is to have its literary dues.  In this little volume Mr. Lucas has essayed to do for men what he did for the heroines of life and poetry and fiction in “The Ladies Pageant.”  No other editor has so deft a hand for work of this character, and this volume is as rich a fund of amusement and instruction as all the previous ones of the author have been.

The Gentlest Art

*_A Choice of Letters By Entertaining Hands_*

EDITED BY E.V.  LUCAS

Cloth, $1.25 net.

An anthology of letter-writing so human, interesting, and amusing from first to last, as almost to inspire one to attempt the restoration of the lost art.

“There is hardly a letter among them all that one would have left out, and the book is of such pleasant size and appearance, that one would not have it added to, either.”—­The New York Times.

“Letters of news and of gossip, of polite nonsense, of humor and pathos, of friendship, of quiet reflection, stately letters in the grand manner, and naive letters by obscure and ignorant folk.”
