An Unusual Offer 6Vol.setof ErnestThompson Seton A NEW set of Ernest Thompson Seton at a new low price! For those who know Seton this will be an alluring pros pect. If you don't know Seton, then you have a great big treat coming to you. These books, to a word, are the most fascinating things of their kind in the art of books. They actually have personali ties!

Thus the personality of the outdoor genius is beautifully expressed on the outside of his books before a single one is opened. But open one of the Seton books. You will instantly be captured. Practically every page has its own special illustra tion! Bunny plays dead, the cub climbs a tree, how to lay a camp-fire, footprints of grizzlies, "Things to See in Winter time"-for example, the constellations, and how to trace "Orion the Hunter and His Fight With the Bull." The newest book from Seton's magic pen is included in this set. It is called: The Beloved Author Seton is universally beloved because he has the gift of doing three things at once: He entertains with his drolleries of speech and sketch; he diverts with his power to catch the romance and drama of outdoor life; he instructs, for he is internationally known as a great Naturalist.

He has lived much outdoors, knows the birds, beasts, and, as Saint Francis of Assisi would say, 'Our brother the sun and our sis ters the winds and woods.' lie is Ernest Thompson Seton."
