National Geographic : 1900 Jul
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE Our Book Department. Conan Doyle-New Stories THE GREEN FLAG, and other Stories of War and Sport. Dr. Doyle, as all his readers know, delights in strong men, placed in strange situa tions, and coming out in a masterful way. In this volume we have modern officers and soldiers, old-time pirate skippers, veterans of the Napoleonic wars, and other high, heroic fellows cutting their way handsomely through a series of engaging adventures. The stories are far, however, from being all of one kind ; with unfailing strength and interest, they still present abundant variety. Special cover design and frontispiece; 12mo; size, 51 by 7i inches. Price, $1.50. Drummond and Moody. DWIGHT L. MOODY. Some Impressions and Facts. By Henry Drummond. For over twenty years Professor Drummond was, perhaps, Mr. Moody's closest friend : no one else knew him as well. They worked together and visited together, in this country and in England. Feeling that, for all of his fame, the real man Moody was to many people practically unknown, Professor Drummond, shortly before his death, turned from other work and wrote out these intimate impressions and recollections. They show Mr. Moody sympathetically in all his phases. They are in some sense a revelation even to persons who followed Mr. Moody closely in his public work ; for those to whom he was only a name they create'a new personage-one that by his extraordinary qualities cannot fail to interest them. In large type, with ornamental headpiecesandinitialletters, and a photogravure frontispiece; 12mo; size, 5- by 7- inches. Price, $1.00. Booth Tarkington, Author of "The Gentleman from Indiana." MONSIEUR BEAUCAIRE. In this story, Mr. Tarkington proves again his ability to create characters that grip the reader's interest and sympathy at first sight and never for an instant lose their hold until the last word is said, and even then linger long as an engaging memory. Monsieur Beaucaire, with his courage and honor, his smiling cleverness and finesse, and his readiness and skill with his sword in a proper cause; and Lady Mary Carlisle, with her high, proud, brilliant beauty, that will not always hide for her, though she strives hard to make it, the tender flutterings of her woman's heart-are people that one follows breathlessly through all their fortunes and recalls- afterwards with the utmost fondness. A beautiful volume with decorative title-page and six full-page illustrationsin color; 12mo; size, 51- by 7 inches. Price, $1.25.
