With numerous Portraits, Illustrations and Maps, and two colored Plates. In 2 vols., 8vo, cloth, $12.00. The career of the late Sir Richard F. Burton, the distinguished traveler, and editor of "The Arabian Nights," was perhaps the most adventurous and romantic of any Englishman of the last generation. He was an encyclopedic scholar, and much more than a scholar. He knew and had seen more of dark Africa than most men, and more of Mohammedan lands than any man. It seemed a simple thing for him to travel in disguise among fanatics where discovery meant death, but his life was manysided, and his biography illustrates a remarkable va- riety of interests. Lady Burton has proved her literary ability before, and in these volumes she has done justice to an exceptional opportunity. Camp=Fires of a Naturalist. By CLARENCE E. EDWORDS. The Story of Fourteen Expe- ditions after North American Mammals. From the Field Notes of LEWIS LINDSAY DYCHE, A. M., M. S., Professor of Zoology and Curator of Birds and Mammals in the Kansas State University. With numerous Illustrations. 12mo, cloth, $1.50. This book sketches big game hunting in the West from a new point of view. The author describes the actual adventures and experiences of a naturalist who has hunted from Mexico to the northern confines of British Columbia, pursuing grizzly bears, mountain sheep, elk, moose, and other rare game. As an outdoor book of camping and hunting this possesses a timely interest, but it also has the merit of scientific exact- ness in the description of the habits, peculiarities, and haunts of wild animals. The Health Resorts of Europe. A Medical Guide to the Mineral Springs, Climatic, Mountain, and Seaside Health Resorts, Milk, Whey, Grape, Earth, Mud, Sand, and Air Cures of Europe. By THOMAS LINN, M. D. With an Introduction by T. M. COAN, M. D. 12mo, cloth, $1.50. A History of Crustacea. By Rev. THOMAS R. R. STEBBING, M. A., author of " The Naturalist of Cumbrae," "The Challenger Amphipoda," etc. With numerous Illustrations. Vol. 71, International Scientific Series. 12mo, cloth, $2.00. " It is not very generally known that the species of Crustacea extend to a number of several thousands. . . . The beginner will have provinces of a new world opened to his exploration. There is curiosity to be gratified. The sporting instinct will discover many an unexhausted territory. In the manners and customs of the creatures there is much to afford entertainment, and almost every new observer finds something singular to relate." From the Preface. The Story of My Life. By GEORO EBERS, author of " Uarda," " An Egyptian Prin- cess," "A Thorny Path," etc. With portraits. 16mo, cloth, $1.25. General Green. By Col. FRANCIS V. GREEN, author of " The Russian Army and Its Campaigns in Turkey," etc. The fourth volume in the Great Commanders Series, edited by Gen. JAMES GRANT WILSON. With portrait and maps. 12mo, cloth, gilt top, $1.50. General Nathanael Green has been termed " the most remarkable man, all things considered, among the soldiers of the Revolution," and it has been said that there was "no one whose reputation and advance- ment can with more justice be attributed exclusively to personal merit." His biography, which has been written in a clear, incisive, always inter- esting style by Francis Vinton Green, whose literary reputation was established by his book, "The Russian Army and its Campaigns in Turkey m 1877-'8," presents a vivid picture of campaigns which extended from Newport to Georgia, and involved the larger part of the military history of the Revolution. Many Inventions. By RUDYARD KIPLING. Containing fourteen stories, sev- eral of which are now published for the first time, and two poems. 12mo, 427 pages, cloth, $1.50. " ' Many Inventions ' will confirm Mr. Kipling's reputation. . . . We could cite with pleasure sentences from almost every page, and extract incidents from almost every story. But to what end ? Here is the completest book that Mr. Kipling has yet given us in workmanship, the weightiest and most humane in breadth of view." Pall Mall Ga- zette. " Mr. Kipling's powers as a story-teller are evidently not diminishing. We advise everybody to buy ' Many Inventions ' and to profit by some of the best entertainment that modern fiction has to offer." New York 8vn. " ' Many Inventions ' will be welcomed wherever the English language is spoken. . . . Every one of the stories bears the imprint of a master who conjures up incident as if by magic, and who portrays character, scenery, and feeling with an ease which is only exceeded by the bold- ness of force." Boston Globe. The Simple Adventures of a Memsahib. A new book by SARA JEANNETTE DUNCAN, author of " A Social Departure" and "An American Girl in London." With many illustrations by F. H. TOWNSEND. 12mo, cloth, $1.50. " It is like traveling without leaving one's armchair to read it. Miss Duncan has the descriptive and narrative gift in large measure, and she brings vividly before us the street scenes, the interiors, the bewilder- ingly queer natives, the gayeties of the English colony." Philadelphia Telegraph. "It will keep you amused to the three hundred and eleventh page." Davenport Democrat. " A clever story, full of humor and shrewd observation of character, and worthy of the author of 'A Social Departure."' Christian at Work. A Border Leander. By HOWARD SEELY. 12mo, flexible cloth, with special design in green and silver, 75 cents. The popularity of Messrs. D. Appleton & Co.'s dainty Summer Fic- tion Series insures a welcome for the attractive and enlarged form of the series this year. "A Border Leander," the first volume in this series, is a picturesque Western romance abounding in incident and humor. In their new form these volumes will be found desirable for preservation in the library as well as for summer reading. RECENT ISSUES IN APPLETONS' TOWN AND COUNTRY LIBRARY Each, 12mo.
