M. Herget in NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC'S beautiful 356-page historical book. This magnificent volume features articles by four noted archeologists. In addition, every painting is accompanied by a full page of descriptive text.

Five maps and 90 photographs also appear in this unusual presentation-a valuable book for home, school, or library. Blue cloth covers, 7 x 101 inches. $5.00 in U. S. & Poss. (elsewhere $5.25), postpaid. Egypt's Queen Nefret-ity Lives 3,300 Years in Stone Book with 189 Pages in Full Color! ECCLAIMED by reviewers, this unique bird book is the first to be profusely illustrated with NATURAL-COLOR photographs, many in full-page size. Most of them were taken within arm's reach of the wild subjects! Beautiful beyond comparison, this volume is a result of 50 years of distinguished ornithological achieve ments by Dr. Arthur A. Allen. His notable re searches, sponsored in great part by the National Geographic Society, have added immeasurably to North American bird lore. Publication of Stalking Birds with Color Camera adds another important contribution of The Society to its educational purposes -the increase and diffusion of geographic knowledge. Many of the 331 COLOR photographs are high speed flash pictures, such as 1/5000-second Koda chromes which "stop" the blur of hummingbirds' wings. In this 328-page book, edited by Dr. Gilbert Grosvenor, Dr. Allen and other scientists provide a rich fund of new information on bird behavior. Because heavy first cost for this delightful com panion and valuable reference work was borne by the NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE, the book is available at the moderate cost of $7.50 in U. S . & Poss. (elsewhere $7.75), postpaid. Richly bound in green linen covers, 7 x 101Y inches. ------ ORDER NOW ----- National Geographic Society Dept. F -F, Washington 6, D.
