Life of Napoleon Bonaparte By IDA M. TARBELL This is a profusely illustrated work, prepared with the aim of omitting no im portant Napoleonic picture. In the case of great paintings indispensable to a complete pictorial life of Napoleon, of which etchings or engravings were not obtainable, photo graphs were specially prepared; and in consequence the work is singularly complete on its pictorial side. Moreover, it contaiis one of the most readable short biographies of Napoleon anywhere in existence. 65th Thousand. Revised Edition, richly illustrated. In Press. The History of the South African War By A. CONAN DOYLE This is the first important literary fruit of Mr. Doyle's army experience in South Africa. The author's painstaking methods in historical work are as well known to readers as his skill as a story teller, and his new history of the Boer War will for this reason possess unusual merit. In Press. The Life of Abraham Lincoln By IDA M. TARBELL Drawn from original sources, and containing many speeches, letters and telegrams hitherto unpublished. "A portrait that helps us to understand better than ever before the manner of man Abraham Lincoln was. . . . A narrative that is so intimate in its revelations as this of Miss Tarbell's helps us to realize that, with all his greatness, Abraham Lincoln was cast in the mold of our common humanity. . . . Her work presents a portrait of the man that no student of history can afford to miss, for it is very human, and does full justice to that homely side of Lincoln's character which has done more than anything else to give him a hero's place in the hearts of the common people."-Brooklyn Eagle.
