Seen in Germany By RAY STANNARD BAKER During a recent visit to Germany, Mr. Baker was afforded unusual opportunities to study the workingman, both in the shop and in his home; the soldier, on and off duty; the typical German scientist (Professor Haeckel), and the Emperor-in fact, all sides of German life. The results of this careful study are set forth in a concise and interesting manner.

The pictures of George Varian, made from studies on the ground, add greatly to the charm of the book. 12mo, $2.00 net. Postpaid, $2.15.

This volume is notable among its kind in that no poem has been admitted which is not absolutely true to nature. 12mo, $1.50.
