La Fille aux Yeux d'Or. Translated

from the French of Honoré de Balzac by Ernest Dowson, and Illustrated with six designs by

Charles Conder.

Five Hundred Copies, royal 8vo size, bound in blue cloth extra, with gilt cover design. Price 12s. 6d. net.

An attempt has been made to produce an edition worthy of the reputation of one of the most famous productions of Balzac. Attention is directed to the method pursued in producing the illustrations—viz. wood engraving, which, it is hoped, will be a welcome change from the cheap photographic processes now so

much in vogue.
 

Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous

Entanglements); or, Letters collected in a Private Society, and published for the instruction of others. By Choderlos de Laclos. Translated by Ernest Dowson, and illustrated by Monnet, Fragonard

Fils, and Gérard.

To render this edition of "Les Liaisons Dangereuses" worthy of its fame as one of the chefs d'œeuvre of Literature, it is illustrated with fine photogravure reproductions of the whole of the 15 charming designs of Monnet, Fragonard Fils, and Gérard, which appeared in the much-coveted French Edition of 1796, and which are full of that inexpressible grace and beauty inseparable from the work of these masters of French Art of the eighteenth century.

This translation of "Les Liaisons Dangereuses" is complete in two volumes, demy 8vo, containing upwards of 580 closely-printed pages, and the impression of the book is strictly limited to 360 copies, each numbered. The book is choicely printed on good paper, and bound in blue cloth extra. Price, to subscribers

only, Two Guineas net.
